I personally feel, by the way, that it’s probably time that we start the process of fixing the Star Wars numbering system. I understand that we cannot simply pretend that the first three movies ever happened, but there’s still no reason to reward failure. We need an alternate method for counting these movies.
Anyway… it’s official. John Williams is writing the score for the next Star Wars flick. “Masslive reports Williams “said he accepted the invitation from Lucasfilm producer Kathleen Kennedy mainly because he was enchanted by actress Daisy Ridley’s portrayal of Rey and does not want another composer scoring her scenes.”” Although I’m sure that the tons of money, adulation of fans, and the likelihood of yet another Oscar nomination probably didn’t hurt there, either.
PS: Hey, everybody understands that John Williams is basically this time period’s rough equivalent to Haydn and Bach, right?
