    When asked over the weekend about potentially scoring Episode VII, Giacchino had this to say....(and I agree with him)

    Does that mean, you will be onboard for the next Star Wars film, which J.J. Abrams is set to direct?

    "All I can tell you is that the thing, that excites me most about a new Star Wars film is the possibility of hearing new John Williams music. I would much rather hear John Williams’Star Wars score than my music for Star Wars."

    Good catch! I love the quote and it gives me even more confidence that John Williams is returning. Where did you find it?

    Here's the video. It's three minutes into it.


    My guess is that Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy, etc. probably feel the same way.

    Still, Giacchino seems to be consistent with his opinion that he would rather Williams do it than he. He's just also said in the post-concern Swiss Q&A: "One of the things that excites me most about 'Star Wars' coming back is chance to hear a John Williams score [...] He has been a great inspiration to me over the years. He has been a great teacher to me and good friend and I would love nothing more than to hear more of his music from that universe. [...] If it were up to me I would say 'John, you must do it.'"

    Whatever one wants to say about Giacchino, good or bad, I can say this: he's classy, he's humble and he's respectful. If the choice is between Giacchino and Williams, and even Giacchino thinks it should be Williams, that's class.
