    I'd easily go for Williams, his music is pretty much what makes Star Wars what it is. If they don't choose Williams, Giacchino would be the more likely executive choice, seeing as how he was worked on almost any project by Abrams. I'd still prefer Williams, tho'.

    I think it's definitely got to be Williams. Apart from the iconic themes for the established characters, the new characters are going to need their own 'theme' music. Seeing as though the music has always been a HUGE part of the movies, this will be very important for the characters. Be they heroes or villains.

    Zimmer hahahahahahahha. That is the most laughable thing I've read in my 7 years on these boards.
    Also, I don't vote in polls show who I voted for.

    The Gladiator soundtrack was superb. Still listen to that to this day from time to time. The music was very emotive.

    How about Motörhead? 'Ace of Spades' would kick in the action scenes!!!!!! :)

    Motorhead should be cast as a group of space pirates/bounty hunters. They don't even need any costumes.
    That would be just too damn awesome.

    williams is more likely to give it his all this go-around; after all, even in the prequels, it was arguably one of the best features of those films, even then!

    giachinno can do his own take on a musical landscapes/pastiche or motifs used & indeed popularized/improved upon by said composers, as he did with star trek, which was great (tho my favorite moment, musically and in the story, were the credits)

    i doubt he would mess much with the imperial march or credit crawl;

    but according to wikipedia, williams is on board, or has expressed interest

    giachinno would be a valid replacement, or maybe silvestri

    imagine ennio morricone! that would be strange..
    but epic!

    As long as he is willing and able to, Williams should be my choice...

    If we are going to use a Motorhead song in E7, how about something else besides Ace of Spades. They have many better songs than that.

    It takes a real talent to quad post. That is a bannable offense in case you didn't know.

    If it sounds like John Williams wrote & recorded it, I don't care if they hire a high school band to do it.

    Picked Williams seeing as he's more than likely going to do it.

    Although, if Williams wrote the score and Giacchino orchestrated it - I'd be perfectly content with that. As long as it sounds like Star Wars, I'm good.

    If it sounds like they used a Jersey Shore soundtrack I'll be pissed.
