John Williams Is Too Awesome to Even Watch a Star Wars Movie

How did the rebels steal the Death Star plans that Luke Skywalker and his cohorts use in their attack? And after seeing the footage, I can say he succeeded.

It’s not like he composed all of the Star Wars music without watching the film’s scenes, anyway.

Entire Star Wars-themed lands are now under construction at the theme park and at Disneyland Park in California.

Going back to Rogue One, the epic flick has garnered $190.2 million domestically in its first five days, with $155.1 million in its opening weekend.

Disney proved this time past year with the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens that they had hit the nail on the head when it came to tone and story and with J.J. Abrams at the directorial helm, it was exactly the movie that the fans had wanted.

-There’s a small line in the middle of “Star Wars: Episode IV, A New Hope”. I personally feel that these interstitial stories should be small and gritty and experimental, not “just another Star Wars movie.’ Rogue One is just another Star Wars movie”. Cassian Andor (Diego Luna, who is usually on the production side of movies) is an intelligence officer for the Rebels who travels with Jyn to find her father. The last three films in that series became a major presence at the box office in the Novembers of 2013, 2014, and 2015. He has almost 200 film and TV credits, including composing the score for 140 movies and shows over the past 60 years. We also got to see a little Darth Vader, who was portrayed a bit differently than we’ve seen in other films.

Although it’s understandable that Lucasfilm wanted to differentiate between the anthology films and numbered films, and it’s commendable that they wanted to give the anthology films a chance to be creatively different, we still think there should have been a crawl.

It’s also interesting that Williams is implying here that, while working on scoring a particular film, he avoids all other movies and music in that time, choosing to only focus on the work he’s now doing. This is a totally great way to tie in all of the different areas of Star Wars media we’ve got at the moment into the wider picture in the galaxy far, far, away. Why not show his exploits instead, which take place around 1000 years before Rogue One? You hold your breath waiting for the “Star Wars” music score and scrolling preface to set the stage, but the words never come.
