Pics from a friend who had the pleasure of recording VII and VIII      

@karelm posted them on Faceook!    

A photo taken of Daisy Ridley & John Williams last year, whilst scoring the soundtrack for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. #DaisyRidley via: lovelyridley  

Armen (cello extrodinare/performer on TFA and TLJ) kindly posted on my facebook a brief video of Jerry (eldest) and Don (youngest) Williams hanging between a take. For those of you who know, these two go way back to Jaws, Close Encounters, 1941, E.T., etc.  Jerry is retired but comes out of retirement when our Johnny needs him.  So cool!

The score certainly has a big, full sound and JW gave his brother more to do this time with percussion.

I won't listen till I see the film so I am in the dark. :)

John is actually the oldest of the siblings, but Jerry is the second-oldest.

The timpani's have that same rich, full OOOMPH as they had in TPM!

I wouldn't say that. The use of timpani in TLJ reminds me much more of ROTS than TPM where they are used in a kind of fun, bombastic way persistently throughout the score as opposed to selectively for tension and drama as they are in TLJ and ROTS.

I was referring to a few specific instances that reminded me of TPM.

I wonder what those shirts on the wall of the recording studio are?

 

Given recent events, I suspect they may no longer be there, if Christopher Plummer's replacement of Kevin Spacey is any indication.
