Winter 2017 is slowly approaching. As I am writing this article, John Williams is in the studio recording the music for The Last Jedi. If we could get a tease to Williams’ musical mastery currently taking place in studio, fans would be overjoyed with excitement. Who knows, come Star Wars Celebration and the highly anticipated trailer for December’s The Last Jedi, maybe the wishes of myself and many fans will become a reality. Star Wars is celebrating its 40th Anniversary, and John Williams has composed all seven installments of the the Star Wars Trilogy. Yes, that means fan favorites such as ‘Imperial Attack’ for Episode IV: New Hope and Rey’s Theme from The Force Awakens.
What kind of music are we expecting to hear as we are watching The Last Jedi? I think it would be very remarkable that the music, being the second film in this new trilogy, have a new spark to it. Something on the lines of a Revenge of the Sith and Return of the Jedi harmony. In those two films the music captures the true essence of the Star Wars. In my opinion I feel that both of these classic productions bring a glimpse of nostalgia stemming back to a time when scores took a larger role in the production of blockbuster films.
I know, even the prequels hit their mark when it came to music.
As a fan of the music, I would love to see changes, specifically when it comes to the composition of Star Wars music. Keep it eerie, and make fans want to binge-listen every second of it. I love listening and reading other Star Wars fans opinions of the music in this galaxy far far away. The Star Wars community has a great platform to express their thoughts on the music, whether it is satisfying to them or not. This music has become part of our daily commute, our evening chill-outs and even gatherings as fans. Listening to John Williams, in every way possible, has become a pastime for all of us.
