Embrace The Power Of John Williams Soundtrack For J.J. Abrams: “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”

Star_Wars_The_Force_Awakens_bannerI can’t BEGIN to tell you how excited we are to watch “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”  There literally are no words but our actions speak volumes.  We’ve already prebooked our seats at IMAX on opening day at 9am.  We’ve agreed to keep our son out of school so HE can go, (this may or may not make us parents of the year, depends on how you look at it) and we may have watched this new trailer over a hundred times already.  (Seriously, we aren’t padding this number, true story, this many times, we need an intervention! As we write this article this official version of the trailer has been viewed over 33 Million times!)

Besides the incredible visuals, we were overwhelmed with the magnificent score by none other than John Williams.  Mr Williams, or as we call him around the office, “Sir Williams” because it’s only a matter of time before he is knighted, was able to take the old soundtracks from past films, which were already brilliant, and change them in such a way that the end result is absolutely awe-inspiring.

Sir Williams film music credits read like a roll call of some of the best movies from the past 40+ years. All the Star Wars films, Jaws, Schindler’s List, E.T., Jurassic Park I, II and III, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Saving Private Ryan, the first three Harry Potter Films, Fiddler on the Roof, and the list goes on and on and on.  (Wiki reminds us: With 49 Academy Award nominations, Williams is the second most-nominated individual, after Walt Disney.) His talents and credits are mind-boggling and this next project sounds like one of his all-time best.  I can honestly say that we are as eager to get this soundtrack as MUCH as we are to see the film. Kudos Sir Williams, your gift of music and storytelling make our favorite films better and more memorable.  You truly are a maestro.
