  1. Is this new/from IX? No music, but very nice to see!
  2. I think we can now safely assume that the TROS recording sessions have started - because that is very clearly the March of the Resistance theme! 😁 I’m so happy that this is really happening, 9 John Williams Star Wars scores.
  3. What the title says; what is your favorite *performance* of both the opening and closing titles? I'm not talking about the music/suites/cues that play AFTER the titles, I'm talking about the title cues themselves. You can either choose from one of the films, or concert recordings. In my opinion, Main Title: TESB or ROTJ End Title: ROTJ
  4. Where do you rank John Williams' music for "The Last Jedi" among his previous scores for the 'Star Wars' films?

  6. This interview with TROS' editor probably explains how Williams was able to start writing so soon after production ended, in contrast with the post-production timeline for TFA. https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/films/1136655/Star-Wars-9-Rise-of-Skywalker-editing-post-production-editor-filming-on-set-tight-schedule She goes on to discuss the benefits of this approach, including getting pickup shots and inserts while the main production was still underway (this was done much later in post-production for TFA with reshoots -- a contributing factor to William
  7. And Trank's replacement is the directing team of Christopher Miller and Phil Lord - the directors of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, The LEGO Movie, 21 Jump Street, and 22 Jump Street And it's a Han Solo movie, with a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan! http://www.starwars.com/news/christopher-miller-and-phil-lord-to-helm-han-solo-anthology-film
  8. There's a picture of Williams recording in the new Vanity Fair cover story on The Rise of Skywalker. I just want to confirm, is this from Force Awakens???? It can't be new, right? The caption under the picture just says: https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2019/05/star-wars-cover-story
  9. Seeing as production on Episode IX should be wrapping up in the next month or so, John will likely start working on this score in the near future. Seems like a good time to start some very early Episode IX predictions! I've avoided any questions about specific new musical themes in the score, considering we know next to nothing about the film's storyline or the new characters.
  10. I couldn't include Poe's Theme as it didn't have a proper concert version Didn t include Rey's Theme for this poll because it might get too many votes and screw up my poll for me #1 is Galaxy's Edge followed by Rebellion is Reborn
  11. The Rise of Skywalker score might not be eligible for the Best Original Score Oscar as the Academy is going to keep the November 15th submission deadline they used last year. http://filmmusicreporter.com/2019/04/24/academy-confirms-return-of-short-lists-in-music-categories/ So, like, December releases will only be eligible if they're willing to give the Academy an FYC by 11/15? That's stupid.
  12. As we've done in the past for other big movies, it's time for the SPOILERS ALLOWED DISCUSSION THREAD for The Force Awakens. The movie had its premiere tonight and its opening wide soon in some European countries. Soon twitter and Facebook and other places will be abuzz with people discussing the movie. I want people to still be able to come to JWFan before they get to see the movie and not be spoiled. If you see the movie and want to post thoughts in the main thread for the film or the Last Film You Watched thread feel free, but please do not put any spoilers in those places. Meanwhile, in t
  13. Mike Matessino updates us on John's social life, also Episode IX: Does June seem a little late for John to start writing this score, considering the timelines for the last two sequels, the December release, and the score's likely runtime? Maybe this is his way of reducing the plethora of rewrites TFA undertook, waiting until the film is properly assembled (sans VFX) rather than writing reel by reel.
  14. I don't agree with all of this guy's analysis, but he does make some good points, especially regarding the overuse of the Force Theme. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gB4lULC87Oo
  15. Is it better than The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and/or Revenge of the Sith? As much as I love the score to The Force Awakens (and yes, it's a grower), I don't think it's better than any of the 3 prequel scores. At most, it's on the same level as ROTS (the weakest of the prequel scores, IMO). The 3 prequel scores, though not necessarily the movies, are instant classics. Not sure yet that TFA actually has that sort of longevity and impact. TFA, in my opinion, lacks strong set pieces like "Duel of the Fates," "Across the Stars," and "Battle of the Heroes" as well a
  16. Hello all. I've decided starting to upload some of my own piano arrangements on YouTube since I thought I'd be a shame if they are only watched and used at my place by just myself. 😉 For now and the near future it's just about John Williams but I will add some pieces by other composers, too. I'm focussing on "hidden treasures" more delicate pieces that are actually suitable to adapt just by piano. Also, it's not about score reductions, so naturally, some parts of the orchestral score are not included. I just went online a few minutes ago and I'm glad to present you my first thre
  17. Hello. I’ve uploaded my first public suite and I would like to know what you guys think of it. What I created is The Prequel Trilogy End Credits (Suite) and it functions as a compilation of the end credits music from TPM, AOTC, and ROTS in order to make a seamless transition between them. https://youtu.be/O2KFxD-JCTQ The arrangements I did were: -Augie’s Great Municipal Band -Default Prequel Trilogy End Credits music -Duel of the Fates -Anakin’s Theme -Across The Stars -Revenge of the Sith End Credits Medley
  18. The Force Awaks will turn 2 yo in a few days... Already two years! Woo-oooo!!!! As you know, the FYC album was available very shortly after the release of the score, allowing the fans to make their own playlists very quickly. Did you stick to the OST album? Did you stick to the FYC Album? Did you make your own playlist? Bespin wants to know!
