It's official: the latest chapter of Star Wars will be scored by John Williams.
The composer, who has crafted the score for all six titles in the space opera saga, was confirmed to be joining J.J. Abrams' Episode VII by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy on Saturday at a Star Wars fan event in Germany.
In April, Abrams had indicated that he wanted the composer to return to score his film, but cautioned that it was still the "early days." The Star Wars website posted an interview where Williams explains how he'll score the latest film.
More to come.
