If he's still alive and healthy enough to conduct his orchestra I think he'll score the Sequel Trilogy. He's getting up there, but still seems to have a lot of energy for a man of his advanced years.

Burton? Hmmmm. Possibly.

David Lynch's Droids? You'd watch the crap outta that thing.

Elfman is one of those composers who definitely has an identifiable genre. Star Wars is not that genre.

I think we had a thread on this last year, actually. Different composers and their sounds.

I might have even mentioned it in this very thread, but if Abrams is directing I hope he doesn't attach Giacchino to compose.

Score by Michael Giacchino, with original themes by John Williams.

I'd be more than happy with that.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

I was thinking we might possibly know the title of Episode VII by the Holidays this year. The title to Episode I was publicly revealed for the first time in late 1997, Episode II's was made known towards the end of 2000 around the time of the Bush-Gore rigamarole and Episode III's moniker was slipped to the press by Lucas and his people in the closing months of 2003. All three episode titles were disclosed roughly eighteen months before the films hit cinemas.

That's no guarantee that Episode VII's name reveal will follow the same or even a similar pattern, but it's possible based on the previous track record that the title might become public knowledge before Christmas of this year to help stir excitement. I guess it's all up to Disney and how long they want to keep the newest story - even its title - under wraps.

You're forgetting one little thing. The movie might not even be coming out in 2015.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

I didn't forget it. I just don't think it'll be delayed longer.

That said, we might not get the title reveal this year. It's possible, but I wouldn't bet anything on it now that Disney's running things.

I wouldn't expect to see a title reveal until the movie's actually in production, or at least in the casting phase of pre-production.

As for the score, obviously it should be John Williams if he's up for it. Otherwise I think it'll definitely be Giacchino.

Also keep in mind Abrams keeps stuff closer to his chest than some others might, so, that's a point towards the Title being revealed less than a year away from release.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

It's kind of meaningless to anybody except me, but I've had the gut feeling that the title will be something along the lines of The New Republic.

We've had both the Sith and the Jedi (opposing forces and philosophies) in titles, two that are somewhat vague at first glance but represent negative and positive (Phantom, Hope) and - of course - Empire. The opposite of the Empire in goals and philosophy is, of course, the Republic, whether old or new.

I know, I know. That leaves Clones. There's always one loner that stands out from the rest.

Count on it. I'm thinking 2017 is more likely. JJ likes to take his time, Hollywood in general doesn't seem to care for deadlines.

Normally I'd argue "Better to wait for a good film than rush a poor one." But Star Wars has a funny habit of disproving the time = quality correlation.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

Yeah, I like the movie (sue me) but Episode I getting the fan and critical reactions it did after the 16-year wait since Jedi definitely doesn't help the "more time elapsed means superior product" argument.

You're probably more right than wrong. They follow a certain, yet vague, pattern.

The Phantom Menace = A New Hope
Empire Strikes Back = Attack of the Clones
Return of the Jedi = Revenge of the Sith

I remember some discussion around the original title of Return of the Jedi, and whether it should have been titled Revenge of the Jedi. The middle two movies share a theme of "striking back".
