Which is one of the reasons why he was asked to score the ST and we're lucky he agreed!

 

Even with the 7th score already almost 2 years old, it's still hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact we're getting new John Williams Star Wars scores. Very lucky indeed.

This should be inscribed somewhere on the front page.

 

Of course this being Mark Hamill, he rambled on for another 10 minutes after saying "The end"

And, sure, I knew John Williams—I loved his score to Jaws. I knew how infective that was. And in retro I realized how much of his music I knew as a kid, on TV, with all the Lost in Space and Land of the Giants. I didn’t know any of that then, you see what I’m saying, so I didn’t really know what he was capable of. It didn’t really occur to me. I think I’d heard that he was doing this score, and that’s about as much as I knew. But I certainly wasn’t expecting to hear it in that moment. But when we arrived at our destination, I was absolutely so blissed out, I mean… I never… I can’t say in words how thrilling and moving and how everything it was!

I'm surprised he wasn't banned, tbh.

I agree with Steef.  This forum needs a strictly enforced "one mistake and you're banned" policy.

Yeah the Laura Dern bit is a reference to the Jurassic Park hymn theme. Daisy sang Laura’s name to its melody. She told that story and sang a demo during the 2-hour red carpet video.
