Star Wars: Episode IX

John Williams is going to make his final go doing Star Wars’ scores a memorable one, bringing back all the previous themes. Don Williams, Jon’s brother, was part of a discussion with Academy of Scoring and revealed early on that Williams is hard at work on the score for the new film, which will be “135 minutes worth of music to write.”

Williams added later in the discussion (per /Film) that the film will feature all the previous themes in some way. “I can tell you that every theme that you’ve heard is going to be compiled into this last effort,” he said. “Leia, Yoda, Phantom, Darth, all of it is going to be in there. And in his usual style, he hides them. You gotta go look for them.”

The film, which is Williams’ last Star Wars movie and the final one in the Skywalker saga, opens on December 20th.
