That Vanity Fair image of Williams conducting that was released a few months back suddenly makes a lot more sense. 

Where is the music from in this second half? I know it's a pastiche of the Imperial March (Can hear that A minor - F Minor Chromatic Mediant at work).      ADMIN NOTE: It's not Williams

Here's my quick and dirty transcription of the melody. Lots and lots of Williams hallmarks here, though nothing that others haven't imitated in the past. I'm gonna remain agnostic.

Lower than Haab and Newmaster, and higher than most of Galaxy's Edge?

 

That's an empty set.

It’s true, I’d rather listen to Star Wars Kinect than most of Galaxy’s Edge!
 

I know I’m an outlier on GE, but all that slow dithering around in the strings doesn’t do much for me. But it has its moments, I’ll admit.

I tried to post the original video on the Star Wars Leaks sub where people would actually be excited, but it is still awaiting a green light.

I then posted my trailer with the theme on on the general Star Wars sub, but it simply got drowned in the mass of posts  (it didn't help that videos can't be embedded there)

 

Not a single comment on Twitter concerns the music. I wrote in priv to those who posted it, but they did not reply.

 

JWFan stands alone.

 

Yeah, that place is the worst.

Wow, three pieces from TLJ were in there and practically no one realized.

 

As for the current topic, definitely going to say no, just sounds a lot like a good piece of library music too me, and I doubt whoever put this together (likely the Total Film team) was given access to Williams's score.

Check that trailer again. When Anthony's face isn't showing, it's C-3PO that's talking. When his face is showing, it's him talking. Weird.

 it's amazing  he managed to stay skinny enough to fit in the costume all his life

I think the music sounds very much alike the march we heard last year during the Verizon (?) commercial that turned out to be a mystery... It certainly wasn’t part of the TLJ score. Same composer?

It sounds synthy due the quality of the video. The video compression or audio compression altering the sound a bit. Even the main title in the first half sounded processed. I was skeptical all the way through until he stopped talking and let the trumpets/strings Q&A passage come through. That short passage is definitely something to think about.

I’ll say it again, there *is* synth in there. Hear the percussion! 

 

Amazing how we can sometimes have discussions here about the LSO vs. LA orchestra  when some people can’t even distinguish fake from real instruments.

Okay, 

 

I think the first part (after the pitched down main titles) sounds like samples, the more it goes through towards the end it sounds less like samples. The programming in the last few seconds is fantastic if that part isn't real. Those last few bars are the bit that throw me from thinking it's a real recording. But if I have to put money on it i'm saying that it's samples.
