John Williams back for more Star Wars?

John Williams back for more Star Wars?

‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’ is being released next week in Australia, with the US having to wait until 17th May. The promotional rounds are well underway helping to push the new film directed by JJ Abrams, and while there’s plenty of Star Trek talk, inevitably Abrams is having to contend with a number of Star Wars questions about the upcoming Episode VII.Without any sense of formality the director revealed during one such press conference that he is planning on composer John Williams returning to a galaxy far far away. Williams of course has scored every Star Wars film to date, however with a long time collaboration between Abrams and Michael Giacchino there was some uncertainty surrounding Williams return.

So breathe easy Star Wars fans, with the new trilogy on the way, it looks pretty certain we’ll see the brilliance of a John Williams Star Wars composition again.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
