Via the Hollywood Reporter:
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 Essen, Germany. The Episode VII script will be penned by Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3, Little Miss Sunshine) and is set to hit theaters in 2015, with Episode VIII and IX scheduled in the years after. Original trilogy stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford are expected to appear in the film.
Star Wars IV was the first soundtrack I ever bought.
