That's actually not accurate at all. The film studios own the music.  Full stop.  The composer creates it, and gets publishing rights as the composer [meaning they get paid everytime someone e

So, what about this?   https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10156337836338755&id=56031953754

Your profile pic is very appropriate. JW himself seems shocked at this revelation.

What I want: Star Wars OT, Indy and Schindler's List

What I'll get: Witches of Eastwick, Amistad, Minority Report and some obscure late 1960's or early 1970's JW score.

That's what I want after the franchises, so I would be more than happy about that!

Hasn't it been pointed out that LLL would not do Star Wars?

 

While this is probably true, Matessino has spoken about how it's often easier for studios to outsource expansions to independent labels due to the complexity of licensing unreleased and previously released music. He spoke at length about this in his Jurassic Park/Lost World podcast.

 

Of course, we don't know the full complexities of the situation with Lucasfilm and Disney regarding the Star Wars scores. I mean, it seems straightforward but let's consider who actually owns the scores. Lucasfilm, right? And Lucasfilm is owned by The Walt Disney Company. Walt Disney Records is a record label under Disney Music Group, which is a production arm of Walt Disney Studios, which is a division of the Walt Disney Company. I'm sure that's straightforward enough with the Disney-commissioned scores recorded in LA (TFA and TLJ) but the first six are a mixed bag of studios and musicians.

 

Again, presumably Lucasfilm reserve all rights to all Star Wars music themselves, but it's unclear what other entities have involvement in the ownership of each score. Don't forget Fox have/had a perpetuity ownership of the original film, now further complicated by the Disney buyout of 20th Century Fox (film division). Clearly Disney were able to reissue all 6 OSTs without issue, so it doesn't seem to be much of a problem.

 

Ultimately the label is less important than the producer assembling it. So long as Mike Matessino is involved, we're in safe hands.

I love most of JW's OST presentations. They usually give a coherent listening experience with a good dramatic arc.

yeah, but maybe the expansion includes the ost too!

 

By the way, i would prefer instead of the star wars prequels expansions these:

The Secret Ways

Gidget goes to Rome

The Killers

Daddy's Gone A-Hunting

The Plainsman

The Rare Breed

Schindler's List, JFK, Towering Inferno, Hook and Harry Potter 1-3 confirmed!

No Schindler's List, no Far & Away!!!

 

It's The Witches od Eastwick, Hook, Amistad, JFK, The Towering Inferno and Harry Potter confirmed!!!

 

No, honestly @Jay, what would you say are the most probable expansions for this year? And if, how many of them are you involved in?

I hope this means it's Star Wars time.

 

Good, because it hasn't been Star Wars time since, what, January 2018? 

That relentless churning out of Disney movies, re-release albums, and re-recordings the last 3,5 years has really been a dry stretch for Star Wars fans.

There's niche, and then there's this.

Are you familiar at all with what LL releases when it comes to JW? They wouldn't just re-release OSTs.

What SW re-recording are you referring to?
