    GALAXY's EDGE - New John Williams composition (2018)

    I feel Williams could have easily written concert versions for each theme. If he could extend Fawkes and Chamber of Secrets into lengthy concert versions, I don't see why he could haven't done the same for Rose's theme and Luke's Island theme. He could have even turned the Holdo/desperation theme into a nice concert piece.

    It's nice that people are now recognizing the brilliance of this piece. It's interesting that a video of the music in poor quality and loaded with background noise is what ended up enlightening people. I recognized it's brilliance when I first heard it back in November, even in an abridged version.

    Is it known how much music Williams wrote for the theme park? I thought I read somewhere that he wrote more than what we've heard but I can't find where I read that.

    Is this the Coke ad?

    No new music from what I can tell but a different performance of the existing music starting at :28.
  6. 1:35 - Is Chewie finally going to get a medal??
  7. Why do you say that? I mean, it's highly unlikely he wrote any new music for the teaser but he has gotten away with working on projects without anyone knowing until it's formally announced.
  8. I have a feeling it's already in the works, at least the OT.
  9. I thought MM said Williams wouldn't start working (meaning start writing) on IX until this summer? Who knows when they will start recording... may not be until August.
  10. I'm really surprised Disney hasn't started advertising this film already. I don't necessarily mean teasers/trailers but at least a title drop to start drumming up interest. I understand the release is 10 months away but they started advertising TLJ around this time and TFA over a year in advance with a teaser no less.
  11. There's a rumor (unconfirmed, of course) that they may drop a teaser for the Super Bowl. If nothing happens, then I guess it'll happen for the SW Celebration in April.
  12. Williams was also nearly 40 years younger as well when he wrote TESB. I was under the impression he was requiring more time to write/record SW scores nowadays. I mean, he started working on TLJ at least a year before it was released. With IX, he'll have at least 6 months to work.
  13. Does this mean IX will be pushed back to 2020? It seems unlikely Williams will be able to write and record a 2 hour+ score in a few months. It seems every aspect of this film is behind schedule for a December release.

    RUMOR: John Williams plans to retire in 2019

    As others have mentioned, this rumor conflicts with what Williams has stated many times in the past in regards to retiring. If this rumor was related to a health issue, then its certainly understandable. However, it doesn't seem to be related to any health issues since he still plans to do IX (as far as we know) which will not be an easy feat with Abrams in charge and because of the short schedule if he isn't able to start writing until next spring. I believe he also confirmed doing Indy 5 unless if something has changed since.
  15. Is disqualified the right word to use? Using that word makes it sound like the score itself was the issue when it's simply because Disney missed the deadline for submission. Disney obviously wants to sweep Solo under the rug. I think it may have seen better luck opening in December even with Poppins returning.
