starwarsI know, I know — I’m a day late on posting this, but it’s news that should be spread throughout time and space. In a (not so) surprising twist, Kathleen Kennedy of Lucasfilm announced that John Williams will return to the Star Wars saga to compose for Episode 7.

In a video, Williams said that he’s looking forward to revisiting his original themes and creating new works.

It’s obvious that it’s great news. John Williams’ score added so much to make Star Wars an incredibly memorable series of films. But I can only hope that one day he will collaborate with Daft Punk one day. What? You know that would be audio bliss.
