From the moment it was released, we all thought that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker would be John Williams “swan song” to the franchise that he helped create. A new facebook post from Cecilia Tsan who is a Cellist at Hollywood Recording Studios, suggests that something could possibly be up.
Now take this with a huge grain of salt… According to her post, she was in studio with John Williams conducting, a new piece of music. The last time they were in the same room, they were working on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Now this could literally be anything, but there has been no announcement for the composer of the Kenobi series as of yet.
Keep in mind, if this is for Kenobi, it could be just the theme song for the series as well. Similar to his work with John Powell for Solo: A Star Wars Story.
With the demand for Williams’ work, this literally could be anything. Williams was recently interviewed by The New York Times, giving a little more information about what he is currently doing…
“I don’t particularly want to do films anymore, six months of life at my age is a long time.” In his next phase, he plans to focus more intensely on another passion: writing concert works.
This year, he will complete what he expects to be his final two films: “The Fabelmans,” loosely based on Spielberg’s childhood, and a fifth installment in the “Indiana Jones” series.
Williams said that he expected The Fabelmans would be the pair’s final film collaboration, though he added that it was hard to say no to Spielberg, whom he considers a brother. (Spielberg, for his part, said that Williams had promised to continue scoring his films indefinitely. “I feel pretty secure,” he said.)
We also have to remember that the Oscars are not too far off, and he sometimes has little pieces of music dropped in the show. Could it be for that? Could it be new Star Wars? Remember this is a huge guessing game, but just the thought of new John Williams Star Wars music is tantalizing.
Of course, leave your thoughts below. Let us know what you think about this new information.
