John Williams to Score Star Wars Episode VII?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

It's a new era for Star Wars, with J.J. Abrams taking the helm as Disney is now in charge of Lucasfilm.

But while many hope that Abrams will inject something new into the franchise, the director still wants to maintain a connection to the other six films.

That's why, at a press conference in Germany today, Abrams said that he wants original composer John Williams to score Star Wars Episode VII.

The director stated, "For Star Wars, it’s very early days, but I believe that, going forward, John Williams will be doing that film, because he was there long before I was.”

Michael Arndt is currently writing the new movie's script, which is thought to take place some 20-30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi.

It is believed that Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill will reprise their roles from the first trilogy, though not much else is known about the plot or casting.

Star Wars Episode VII has a release date set for Summer 2015.
