Here's my main hope for Abrams's Star Wars: he dumps John Williams as the composer (using the SW theme and opening, of course; Disney will mandate that) and films the thing in a faster paced and more modern style.
I think it's a safe bet Michael Giacchino will do the music, although I can't imagine Williams not being asked or turned down. Williams will probably just step aside. It's a new regime. Giacchino would probably keep the main and end title music and then do his own thing, while keeping it "Star Warsy." Abrams will also most likely bring a brand new look to the franchise since he doesn't have Lucas's "everyone on vitural sets" stiffness. Whether one likes his visual style or not, it DOES have energy. He may keep it closer to the original trilogy style than Star Trek, but he'll bring his own pacing and energy to the project. There may be a feeling that since it's "episode 7" they want to keep the look close to what had come before, but who knows?

I see nothing but good things for Star Wars, honestly.
We'll see. I never thought Williams music was a problem.

The large orchestral is an important part of the Star Wars soundscape. I would not hope to hear synthesizers or a drum machines in a Star Wars film.
How about the Beastie Boys?

Indeed. Let's ask MCA and find out what he thinks. Ooops....

The responsible party lacks the finesse, wit, charm or intellect of Samuel T. Cogley - but then, who among us could fill those shoes?

The first notes that a comment is non-germane. It implies that comments should be germane (a suggestion) and indicates why that part of the post was not responded to (an explanation). Finally, that was a hostile comment I was replying to and the reply implies that one is no under no pressure to respond to such a post.

The second is simple banter. The prior post was not itself serious (note the smiling devil emoticon in that post), so there is no obligation for the reply to be serious. It was germane in the sense that the prior speech act was itself a joke (i.e., non-literal and non-hostile).

In other news, JJ Abrams is now the director of Star Wars. wait a sec. Is this thread even in the right forum?

Considering Lucas is apparently so anal about Star Wars that he wants 20th Century Fox to distribute Episode VII just so it'll have the same logo at the start that Episodes I-VI had, I'm not so sure he'll allow Abrams to deviate too much from the style of days gone by.

Well, that fanfare intro leading into the main title rocks. I'd have been that anal, too. Don't forget that Lucas resigned from the DGA over the structure of the beginning of the OT films.

That entire intro from the fox fanfare to the ellipsis at the end of the crawl is almost like a trademark. If it were me, I'd stipulate that the crawl must be there, the font of the crawl, the music, a lot of things that make the beginnings all distinctive and intrinsic to the first six films.
