If you remember a few weeks ago (10-5-14), we reported that John Williams was going to start working on a new piece of Star Wars music “in two weeks.” That means he’s been working on it now, folks. Our buds at Jedi News have now heard this rumor on the John Williams Fan Network:
A reliable source just said JW received a trailer from JJ Abrams on Monday, Oct 20. JW has already written new Star Wars music to accompany this trailer. This new trailer music will feature new music and will be recorded on November 15 in LA with full orchestra. Still determining if the score will be recorded in London due to advanced age of composer/conductor. 14 hour flight to LA not too kind on 82 year old. This is all a secret and this message will be deleted shortly.
So LA friends, keep your ears out and keep us posted. USC friends, if you see Williams around, let us know!
My bet has always been we would not see a trailer until Star Wars Celebration Anaheim in 2015, 8 months before Star Wars: Episode VII is released. But Trek friends have let me know that each time Abrams did a film, he did a teaser with stuff not from the film itself and that could mean we are about to see something for Christmas. The one thing I will say, is I have heard we would see the Star Wars “kick off” really begin at about the one year mark before the film and this lines up really well with that.
Please be accurate! Wesa dyin’ here. Yeah, I just quoted Jar Jar. That’s how bad things have gotten.
