I'd love Williams to return. If someone else does it, I'd be fine with it. Just as long as they capture the *feel* of Star Wars, with this feeling musically apart of the same series.

As long as the opening march for example is retained, I'll be happy.

No way they're dropping stuff like that. I think we're safe on that front.

HGW bringing his MGS4 & KoH game could be masterful. MGS4 was one of the best sounding..anythings I've ever heard.

Yeah, we better be. Perhaps it's just because the Disney takeover thing almost makes it feel like a rival franchise. But it's not.

Indeed. Plus, those guys have been pretty cool with Feige and Marvel and Lucas has an even more special relationship with them. I think we're good.

I agreek. This would also be glorious and a small step out of the comfort zone that Giacchino admittedly is.

Giacchino is pretty much a lock IMO if John does not return. He is truly the musical child of John.

Giacchino if Williams can't return. My next choices would be Silvestri or Desplat - so long as the Force theme and the original theme return - oh and Han/Leia theme.

Michael Giacchino is a given unless they hire a director with a go-to composer.

Giacchino is a good choice, but if they wanted to try something different, Bear McCreary or Philip Glass would be interesting.

I think it's safe too say with how deeply rooted it's become in pop culture that the primary theme is safe

Fixed the embed. You have to remove the "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=" from the link.

EDIT: His name's Joel McNeely and he hasn't doen anything big in a while, so I'm sure he'd be easy to lock down. His music is great, and he's really affordable. He's definitely got my #1 pick after Williams.

You can't have Star Wars without the master Composer John Williams.

If I had to chose another it would be Jeremy Soule, he did the music for Knights of the Old Republic/Elder Scrolls III, IV, and V. And many more, he is an amazing composer. However, I still think Michael would be the logical choice.

If Williams doesn't return, then I want to see Zimmer take over the role. He's already doing that with Superman after all.
