    I have all the SW sound tracks. I listen to JW while I design/code websites. It gets me into the "Zone".

    In my best General Grievous voice... "The new music will make a fine addition to my collection"

    Great news. Would have been shocked if he wasn't involved but nice to get confirmation.

    It's not that we didn't pretty much know this, but still, great to hear.

    Is it 2015 yet? Are we there yet?

    Slower than Christmas, this is.

    Has it been mentioned that later in the press conference he said it's not written in stone? Can we not say confirmed?

    Awesome confirmation and really a no-brainer! Very cool!

    Now that SW day is fast approaching, I'm starting to get excited that we may have more confirmations coming in short order. At least I'm hoping!

    It doesn't work that way. Mr. Williams may have some ideas for themes but scoring happens against a rough cut of the film.

    Very glad this essential component of Star Wars is returning for the ST.

    Ok, it's day 2 of this news and we still don't have a "Is Abrams destroying Star Wars by inviting John Williams back?" thread.

    Faith in humanity cautiously restored?

    Alot of indications (including JJ Abrams' comment that they're still "very early" in the process) points to Episode VII not filming this summer. 2015 is in jeopardy.

    I hope he has the strength to do it.

    Because even those who despised the prequel trilogy think the soundtrack is pretty damn good. For me - soundtrack is half the movie.

    I wouldn't think so. Scoring is done late in the process (during post-production). Furthermore, why would 2015 be in jeopardy? The Sequel Trilogy movies have a tighter release schedule compared to the OT and PT (two years instead of three). Also, compare with Abram's Star Trek Into Darkness (with VFX by ILM) that began filming in January 2012 and that will be released on May 9 in the UK, Australia etc.

    I hope John Williams includes lots of rap music in the soundtrack to stay ahead of the times.

    Except that most movies tend to film about a year before their targeted release date. If its this time in 2014 and there hasn't been a filming date set yet, then there'd be a reason to believe a 2015 release isn't happening.

    I was extrapolating from the production schedule for the prequel trilogy. Mange makes some good points in his recent post above.
