Legendary “Star Wars” composer John Williams has confirmed that he and filmmaker J.J. Abrams have had a conversation regarding his return for the upcoming “Star Wars: Episode VII”.
Talking with Zap2It, Williams said:
“We’ve certainly talked about that, and I’m happy and willing to do it. J.J. Abrams, who will be the director, seems excited about the idea. I have to say that J.J. is a much younger man than I, but I will try to keep up with him as much as I can.”
“We now have the benefit of all this computer simulation and technical work that wasn’t even possible 20 or 25 years ago. I don’t know how hands-on George Lucas will be – I suspect he will be to some degree – but I can only imagine how excited he must be, to have a director like J.J. have all these tools at his fingertips to produce something even more adventurous technologically. I can’t wait to see what he will do with it.”
