Obviously, everyone would love for John Williams to score 7-9, but it seems there is a disagreement on the likelihood of this happening for two basic reasons: 1) Williams is semi-retired and only does Spielberg stuff 2) He would only come out of retirement if something interested him enough. I'll take the devil's advocate position here, go out on a limb and say neither of these reasons are enough to make his involvement unlikely. It's still a 50/50 chance to me. On the first point, I'm sure Williams had no idea there would be a new Star Wars Trilogy when he made that statement. Lucas and Spielberg are very close friends with both each other and with Williams, and if this trilogy closes out the trilogy of trilogies, I'm sure Lucas would have some pull with Williams in helping the three trilogy set have some musical continuity. On the second point, Williams as always been vocal about what a unique and wonderful experience working on Star Wars films has been musically. I don't see why a final trilogy of the Saga wouldn't have inherent interest to him. Discuss.
