  1. I'm hoping the first one gets a solo release down the road. I have zero interest in the other scores in the series, including Jerry's Escape.
  2. What makes Williams great to me is his ability to elevate what would be a boring scene into something exciting and badass.
  3. How do you know all of this was recorded for the end credits and not alternates? I'm not 100% sure but it sounds to me that the film cue is simply edited or shortened at the end to fit the scene. The version heard in the end credits appears to be the full, unedited version.
  4. So, did Don pretty much confirm that Yoda is in the film? Williams has used his themes quite literally lately.
  5. For TFA, I thought they were recording as late as October 2015 or maybe even November 2015 but I could be wrong. For TLJ, the recordings were completed sometime before August 2017 because that’s when the film was officially in the can.
  6. There’s at least the film stems of the Rebo music. A 30 second or so snippet of one of the Rebo songs appeared on the Star Wars Soundboard many years ago. It could have been a film stem but I remember quality was decent albeit it was mono like everything else. Regardless, I thought they made copies of the all masters?
  7. I’m judging the book by its cover... it looks very uninspired. I hope Williams music is not.
  8. My hope is that the new themes outweigh the old themes, much like TFA. As much as I love the score to TLJ, I feel there were far too many instances of the old themes particularly the Force theme. Another overused theme was Leia's theme. Williams seemed to use it every time she was on screen - I'm exaggerating but I remember hearing it a lot. I don't think even the OT has a whole used Leia's theme as much as TLJ. On the other hand, nostalgia is the the trend right now and people go ape crazy when films reference old school material (such as Here They Come in TLJ). The choice to reference so much old material may have been deliberate.
  9. What are the chances Williams has already been approached to write something for LA 2028?
  10. We're very lucky Williams still sees Star Wars as his baby. Too bad he didn't have the same passion for HP after POA... he could have written some music for HP world.
  11. What else is on the sheet besides MOTR, if anything? I have no idea how to read music.
  12. Nice to see the old cast back but it won't be the same without Ramis. Rick Moranis better jump on board. I having a feeling this may turn out to be a TFA type of film... old cast that we already know and like joined with some new faces they're going to try to make us like.
  13. While my 12 year old self didn’t fully 100% understand what was going on in the film, I have great memories leading up to it and after it was released. I remember going immediately to the toy aisle whenever we’d go to Walmart to play with the Commtech display and hear whatever characters they had speak dialogue in robotic sounding voices. I got the royal starship playset that year for Christmas and thought it was the best thing ever. And the PS/PC games provided a lot of entertainment as well.
  14. Jafar really deserved a full, complete song instead of a reprise as good as it is. I believe that was the plan originally for the '92 film but was scrapped. Or I could be thinking of Aladdin's song...
  15. While there’s nobody on this Earth who could possibly live up to Robin Williams portrayal as the Genie, I feel should they have cast a real comedian for the live action role.... although I don’t know who....
  16. Too bad Fiedel didn't return for this.
  17. I have a feeling her character was reduced to somewhat of a cameo role. At least she has a better hairstyle.
  18. And no Legacy Collection treatment to coincide with this either.
  19. I wish Menken would work on something more original than rehashing music from his glory days. I believe "Mirror, Mirror" was his last original score... 7 years ago! He's my third favorite composer after Williams and Goldsmith. It looks like The Little Mermaid and Hunchback are next. Agreed and the score and songs are nearly perfect. Ashman left us too soon.
