kind of silly to have the same track on both sides. 

 

It actually makes perfect sense - when one side is scratched up, just flip to the other!

Uh...what the heck?!? Just saw this on the Entertainment Weekly site!!   https://ew.com/movies/2018/11/17/john-williams-new-music-disney-star-wars-theme-parks/    

5 years ago, I never fathomed that over the course of 4 years we would be getting more John Williams Star Wars music than we ever did during the OT and PT eras. Great to see the man continuing to fill

I know of two times, both conducted by David Newman last August: at Tanglewood Film Night and at the Hollywood Bowl.

 

Here’s the Bowl performance

 

 

 

This piece sounds like a mess to me. Like the first 2 1/2 minutes never get out of first gear. Starts with a muddy theme, then is lost in scattered Williams-isms, and just ends.

They should put down those crappy shaky cellphone videos in Youtube. You practise whole your live to get the best sound from your instrument. Then someone put a crappy video on youtube, great!! 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

The opening in the commercially available version is the alternate opening; the original just goes straight from the opening crescendo to the sparkling strings. You can hear that original beginning in the very first video featuring the piece.

 

The material in the Rise video is different - I think it's part of Bill Ross's adaptations for the ride, like the rest of the music in the video. Either that or it's from Savi's. I'd have to do some YouTube comparisons to figure it out.

I was just reading on one of the Disney music boards that a new Sims 4 expansion includes Galaxy's Edge and features original audio from the land... not clear whether any of the unreleased orchestral pieces from the attractions are included, but probably bears investigation.

 

Apparently, "Batuu radio" plays the following in-game:

John T. Williams (Haab arrangement) - Finale
John T. Williams (Haab arrangement) - Kylo Ren Arrives at the Battle (Sims)
John T. Williams (Haab arrangement) - March of the Resistance (Sims)
John T. Williams (Haab arrangement) - Rey's Theme (Sims)
John T. Williams (Haab arrangement) - Star Wars Main Theme (Sims)
John T. Williams (Haab arrangement) - Who Are You?

 

I would like to hear these.

So there's like dozens of gameplay videos of the Sims Batuu Expansion pack and every single one has some obnoxious game reviewer speaking loudly over everything, or library music replacing the actual game audio.

 

I guess there's this Sim-ified disco version of Rey's Theme in the trailer, but no idea if this is Haab's arrangement or just trailer music:

 

There's a March of the Resistance remix later in the gameplay trailer too.

 

EDIT: Okay, this guy has stacks of gameplay videos with no narration, so there should be decent examples of the music here.

 

A fragment of Haab's Rey's Theme here:
