With over 50 Oscars nominations under his belt, five wins and 23 Grammy wins, legendary film composer John Williams is about as good as it gets when it comes to film scores. In a recent interview with Variety, Williams confirmed he told J.J. Abrams that he would like to return for the still-untitled Star Wars: Episode 9:

“I would very much like to complete that.”

John Williams has composed the scores for all eight Star Wars Saga movies, so it seems fitting that he return to finish out Disney’s sequel trilogy. About a week ago news came down that while Williams wouldn’t score the entire film, he would write the theme for Han Solo in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Composer John Powell is set to write the rest of the film’s score. Solo: A Star Wars Story will mark the only the second Star Wars film not to be scored by Williams, with the first being 2016’s Rogue One, which was scored by Michael Giacchino.

Williams currently has more Oscar nominations than anyone else, and could possibly earn two more this coming year with scores for The Post, and of course, Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

I’m not sure who would say no, but are you glad to see Williams return for Episode 9? Let us know in the comments down below!

    It would be funny if they got Danny Elfman to do the last one.

    I’m glad to see Williams return…Conditionally. As I’ve mentioned on the last post (regarding him scoring one theme for Solo) I think that’s the blueprint for Williams moving forward. He needs to focus on 1-3 themes and get an assistant to take care of remixing pre-existing themes and the “grunt” work of scoring.

    I feel that Williams has been very “banal” in his scoring since returning to the franchise. Rey’s theme is fantastic, a classic, and Kylo’s is quite memorable too. The rest is quite forgettable though.

      Yes Rey and Kylo’s themes are great, but the Theme for the Resistance is pretty good too.

        The Resistance theme is AWESOME!

    Is he SERIOUS? After the way he BETRAYED the fans in episodes 7 and 8??!??! HE was the one who inserted the Darth Plagueis motif into the Snoke scenes, and yet Snoke turned out to be NOBODY!!! He’s part of Disney’s whole CONSPIRACY to say FU to the fans. There is NO WAY I want him anywhere near the music for episode 9. IF ONLY the original composer was still around. HE’D know how to properly score a Star Wars movie!
