    My wishlist for the AotC score:

    1)No more than one new theme. It's time to develop ones introduced in TPM, of which there are many.
    2)Not to have a score which has been edited by leaps and bounds since Williams recorded it.

    That's really all I'm hoping for. As for how it will evolve stylistically, I'd bet that we're not going to get a soundtrack that sounds like the OT, because the feeling of the film ought to be different than the OT. I'd love to get into details, but hey, I'm spoiled! :(

    I guarantee you there will be more than one new theme in AOTC. Just because there are new themes in TPM does not mean they ALL will return in AOTC. Most likely some will remain only in TPM.

    i.e. Qui-Gon's Theme.

    What? Qui-Gon isn't returning as a holo? :eek:

    :p

    Anyways, I wasn't assuming that every theme was coming back. Since this is non-spoiler I'll try and be as vague as possible.

    Many characters have thier own themes, coming from both the PT and the OT scores. You'd be hard pressed to name many more themes from TPM not returning in AOTC. Again, no details.

    After a love theme, I do not think there will be a need for more themes in AOTC.

    With the emphasis on "clones" in the title of the film, I'd be pretty surprised if they didn't get a theme or motif of some kind. Maybe a march reminiscent of the one the Trade Federation had in TPM.

    As for other themes... well, since I'm a non-spoilee, all I can think of is Anakin and Padme's love theme.

    Probably a few weeks before the film. My guess is April 31 or May 7.

    Yah. :) I'll probably buy it before I see the movie then hide it away and never look at the titles of the track. Then after seeing AOTC, I'll come home and enjoy sure bliss. :D :D

    Alright, I might have been a little extreme when I said I'd like to see no more than one new theme, but the main point I was trying to get across was that having too many new themes will make the score nebulous and rambling. While Williams could chose to do so, I don't think it would work too well.

    I really hope to see:

    Luke/Leia theme become Anakin/Padme theme to tie it all together, plus I think that song just doesn't fit a brother and sister theme - it's so haunting and tragic - and I've posted this in another thread somewhere - I hear the same notes as Anakin's theme when it becomes Vader's theme (Right where violins transcend from the innocent Anakin theme to Vader's). What an awesome way to tie the whole family together (ok I've ranted long enough about that!) :p

    -I hope Padme gets her own theme and I think this would be VERY important for Episode III
    -I hope Obi gets his own theme, but tied in with OT theme
    -I hope Yoda's theme returns and gets played up, but I don't know - his music is so uplifting and the movie sounds dark
    -I hope the Force theme returns

    Maybe the follwoing will happen:
    -I think there will a Clone theme
    - Perhaps a Mace Windu???
    -Return of FEtt motif

    Of course,
    -A return of Anakin's theme, but many variations
    -

    Yah, I agree with the whole Anakin/Padme theme should be more like Luke/Leia than the Han/Leia theme- but for different reasons. :) I think so because when Luke and Leia's theme is played is when they finally revist their past, Padme and Anakin, and their childhood.

    Oh, and yes, I would REALLY like the return of Boba's Motif as well as a Clone theme which I believe should sound a whole lot like the Stormies' motif in ANH. :)

    Am I the only one who would like more themes reused from the OT? For example, I would like it if Anakin's theme segued into Han and Leia's theme. I know Williams could write a new love theme, but I don't think he'd top that one. I'd also like hints of Leia's theme to be used for Padme. That music is really beautiful, and was only heard in a big way in ANH.
    The return of the Imperial March is also essential, IMO, at least in Episode III.

    Yes, the trailer starts with a cue from "The Clash of the Lightsabers" and when Obi-Wan jumps out the window, "Duel of the Fates" starts playing until the trailer ends. There is some other music in-between, but I can't quite put my finger on what it is.

    If I got what I wanted, I'd ask Williams to compose something very Elfmanesque, but that's just me as a spoilt brat.

    You should know that Danny Elfman is my GOD! :p

    Well, the music in Harry Potter sounds slightly Elfmanesque. But I love both those composer's work, so I think they should stick to their own styles.

    In the "Mystery" trailer, right before DOTF, there's about three seconds of unused music from RoTJ (The Sail Barge Alternate) I think that that piece would be absolutley great for an action cue. Possibly the one shown in the "Mystery" trailer. (I hope that's not a spoiler, to say that.) :confused:
