John Williams to Begin Recording ‘Episode VIII’ Score This Month

Last Christmas, legendary composer John Williams took us back to a galaxy far, far away with his score to Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, which is one of his greatest, densest compositions yet. Reports emerged as far back as August that Williams had already begun writing the score for the sequel, Episode VIII, just as it was being piped into the editing bay for Rian Johnson to begin assembling the film.

Fans were relieved when Williams confirmed he would indeed be returning to score the sequel after he told President of Lucasfilm Kathleen Kennedy that he didn’t want anyone but him scoring Daisy Ridley as she continued down the path towards becoming a Jedi.

Variety reports Williams will head back into the recording studio this month and continue to work on the score for Episode VIII up until March or April, giving him plenty of time to craft another masterpiece. At this point, it seems like Episode VIII will complete production eight months ahead of its theatrical debut.

Star Wars: Episode VIII hits theaters December 15, 2017.
