Force Awakens ABC TV Spot - CONFIRMED premiere of Williams' score!


The Music In The Spot  

59 members have voted

  1. 1. Is the music from 0:03-0:38 in this TV spot written by John Williams?

    • Definitely John Williams - probably written a while back for potential trailer use
    • Definitely John WIlliams - It's gotta be from the Force Awakens score!
    • Definitely John WIlliams, but redone / remixed to sound more "trailery"
    • Definitely not John Williams!

This poll is closed to new votes

The new tv spot from the preview. There is a musical theme in it I have not heard previously. I have no clue anymore as to the composer.

John Williams @Johnnybaby - Nov 13 It's me, babies.

Williams is playing here with Vader's theme...he is using only a little part of the melody and chords. We know that Vader has a special rôle in this movie, a shadow of the past...the darker part fits

While I still think the snippet is Williams, it is a very odd choice to debut his new work in a commercial--and not even in the first commercial. I guess we will have to wait a month to sort this stu

All the PT promotional material used actual Williams music. The lack of Williams in the Force Awakens trailers/commercials ever since the teaser and these RCP power anthem versions of the themes instead is pretty fucking disturbing, but the fanboys are eating it up.

Everyone remember when that bit of sheet music from The Book Thief was shown and it was quite literally the worst moment of the score (and possibly even his post-75 career)? If it is Williams, then maybe it's that type of situation.

(It was that Snow Fight insert just in case nobody remembered)

who know, all I know is that I feel depressed for some reason

Is it because you're afraid it might be Williams and it doesn't sound up to par? That's how I feel. I don't think it's Williams but I honestly don't know for sure. It's harder for me to detect the synth sound than others here. If it is synth it is very good synth.

why would they still be paying someone to compose music for a TV spot when they have the recording sessions now

I think JJ may be so excited to work with John Williams on a Star Wars film that he is purposefully holding the new music back until the film releases. At least I HOPE SO!

No more TV spots or articles for me until the movie comes out

Yeah same here. Already feel too informed.

Ditto. I love what I've seen so far, but one of my greatest fears, apart from getting hit with spoilers from outside sources, is that I'll wind up spoiling it for myself by putting too many of the pieces together. And anyway, I don't need any more trailers to tell me this is going to be great. I just want to get to the damn greatness already. . . !

Even the Jurassic World trailers switched to Gia's recording of the theme once the sessions were done. They must have at least 3 hours of material from JW for TFA now. I can't believe they won't use some of it.

Anakin's Betrayal premiered in a TV spot and I remember being blown away hearing that for the first time.

Well, I guess there's always that Disney Channel thingy tomorrow. Back to waiting.

Now does seem like the right time to start using Williams to hype the movie. It's been a little disheartening, musically....I guess it's paranoid but it feels like they don't think Williams' music is badass or sexy enough on its own. Gotta add the drums and brooding efffects. Of course they're not gonna make the actual score sound like that, but it's kinda like, so the real shit can't sell a Star Wars movie to the masses? Star Wars music isn't cool enough for Star Wars anymore? Doesn't capture the right atmosphere? Or what? I don't get it.

yeah, there something oddly amiss

Perhaps JJ simply does not want the music to be heard before the movie comes out. It's understandable

it make as much sense as using fake footage from the film

We are talking about trailers here, things that usually do not have original music from the film although there are some exceptions like the teaser. I am not in the least surprised if they are saving Williams' music for the film itself.
