    That's true, but when you were championing someone 'completely different' I assumed the subtext was also to have very different sounding music (with Greenwood say putting out a soundtrack more like There Will Be Blood than Empire Strikes Back).

    Whoever the composer is, I think a neo-romantic score littered with easily identifable leitmotifs is the best way to go for a Star Wars picture.

    Yes, but I think there's an opportunity to do something fresh within the usual Star War guidelines here, not unlike what Max Richter did with Vivaldi's "Four Seasons", and I'll be disappointed when they appoint a soundtrack drone instead of someone who has a vision and a sense of style.

    Personally I'd like to see Bear McCreary, John Powell or Murray Gold get a crack at Star Wars. All three know how to use a full orchestra, all three like leit motifs, and any of them could bring that epic "Star Wars" feel. And all three deserve a chance for that break-out score.
