Okay, I take back my claims that Disney doesn't fully see the value of JW.  This is as dramatic as it gets.

Oh I was wrong it's not part of the lives stream video, it already happened!

 

Well I think the stream will be of the panel happening now, just on a delay and presumably with stuff edited out.  So maybe it will be there and maybe it won't.

Oh man I can already tell this live stream will be so cringe, ugh.

Looks like they're just showing the teasers that debuted during the panel, so my bet is it's not likely the Williams part will be shown.

Those clips make me feel like this is Force Theme, Jedi Steps, and The Spark rolled together

 

JW definitely has a take on aging Jedi!

This stream is the content they thought would be more compelling than just streaming the big panel itself?

 

Because this cringey crowd pandering fluff got me like

I hope this is an official concert suite that gets released as a single tomorrow.

Strong Bruckner influence here, eh, @Falstaft? (A composer I hadn’t really thought of in connection with JW before, until Frank pointed out the influence on some other more recent Star Wars music.)


Between Galaxy's Edge and this, I'm loving Williams's late-in-life turn to Bruckner!

I love the little hit to open the piece.

 

The brass choir segment is beyond cool.  

 

The ostinato at times sounds a bit like Gold's Dr. Who to me--nice, but a tiny bit distracting consequently.

The subdued theme itself might get some time getting used to. But I certainly dig the composition and tone. It certainly fits the tone I imagine this series to have. I can't wait to hear it in crisp quality (tomorrow?).

The way I see it, the theme reflects the life he's been living since ROTS ended and the show begins, not necessarily what adventures he'll get up to in the show

This is the most ostinato-y theme suite I've ever heard from JW.

I love the strong brass rendition nearer the end

Jaws?  Superman?

I like the surprise opening on strings and the slow rise of the main melody. Overall, it does remind me of the Luke in Exile theme from TLJ when it goes ostinato and brassy. I hope we get an official release very soon.
