Rise of Skywalker Will Subtly Use Every Star Wars Theme

Star Wars: John Williams

Rise of Skywalker Will Subtly Use Every Star Wars Theme

John Williams has created some of the most recognizable film scores of the last five decades, up to and including Star Wars. Now, he’s putting all the work he did creating the soundtrack for a galaxy far, far away into one massive final Star Wars score for the upcoming The Rise of Skywalker.

Last week, Williams’ brother, Don Williams, spoke at the Academy of Scoring Arts (via The Playlist), where he revealed that John Williams is writing a whopping 135 minutes of music for the latest Star Wars flick. While that gives a rough idea that the film will be longer than that (possibly pushing past the 150-minute runtime of The Last Jedi), there will be some familiar melodies throughout.

I can tell you that every theme that you’ve heard is going to be compiled into this last effort,” Don Williams said. “Leia, Yoda, ‘Phantom,’ Darth, all of it is going to be in there. And in his usual style, he hides them. You gotta go look for them.”

Returning cast members for The Rise of Skywalker include Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo and Billie Lourd. Joining the cast are Naomi Ackie (Doctor Who), Richard E. Grant (Logan), Dominic Monaghan (Lord of the Rings), and Keri Russell (The Americans), who will also be joined by veteran Star Wars actors Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels and Billy Dee Williams, who will reprise his role as Lando Calrissian. The role of Leia Organa will once again be played by Carrie Fisher, using previously unreleased footage shot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

In addition to directing, Abrams co-wrote the screenplay with Chris Terrio (ArgoJustice League). Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, and Abrams will produce, with Callum Greene and Jason McGatlin executive producing. Composer John Williams, who has scored every chapter in the Star Wars saga since 1977’s A New Hope, will return to a galaxy far, far away with Rise of Skywalker.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is scheduled for release on December 20.
