John Williams to Score Star Wars Episode VII

I don't usually venture over to the non-Trek forums, but I saw this news item and was very excited:

http://news.moviefone.com/2013/05/01...medium=twitter

I have absolutely nothing against Michael Giacchino. In fact, I think many of his scores are wonderful. But I am totally in support of John Williams continuing his association with the Star Wars franchise. In this case, I think he is a better choice than Giacchino.

What does everyone else think?

Brilliant move on JJ's part. Old Wars fans would have been pissed if Williams wasn't at least asked first.

Well, Episode VII definately doesn't deserve John Williams, but atleast the movie will have atleast one thing going for it (not that it will really help, considering all the thigns it has going against it, but anything positive about the movie at this point is good news).

ALL Star Wars deserves John Williams. Anyway, I see no reason whatsoever why Episode VII couldn't be better than Episodes I, II, III or even VI...

That's a lot of Toms to kick off a thread.

Also, I hope John Williams lives forever, especially since Disney plans to be making Star Wars movies forever.

All right! JJ isn't stupid and he knows John Williams made Star Wars music what it is. I'm glad he kept up with John.

Agreed. Not exactly sure what VII has "going against it" right now. At this point, it's too early to form much of an opinion at all.

^This is the internet. You must form an opinion with as little information as possible. It's the law.

Even if the films are crud, if they produce another 'Duel of the Fates' they will be worth it !
