While we know little about the actual cast that will be playing in the new Star Wars movie, a has been circulating recently around the Internet that John Williams will compose the music for the new movie. This is would be rather good news since he has done a brilliant job on the past six movies. Even if you hated the prequels, especially the Phantom Menace, you still have to admit that the music was great - especially the Dual of the Fates! We already reported the rumor that John Williams will compose the score just like he has done in the past, but this news was not officially confirmed by anyone even though many sources quoted him directly. However, things have changed recently and this is our latest scoop of Star Wars 7 news that we would like to share with you today.
So, what fresh Star Wars Episode 7 news do we have on the table today? Well, I can say with a smile on my face that John Williams has given us a lot of information to report on. First of all, let us say that John recently had a chat with director J.J. Abrams and that the two discussed Star Wars. To this John says that he responded that he is both happy and willing to work on the new movie. The 85-year-old composer seems to feel rather young, as most original Star Wars generations do, when faced with the possibility of working on another movie.
John Williams told in an interview that he is happy to have Abrams as the director who will be working on the new movie. He says that the technology we have today can help the Star Wars universe reach its full potential and that Abrams is a young, talented man who will know exactly how to use this properly.
He said: ‘We now have the benefit of all this computer simulation and technical work that wasn’t even possible 20 or 25 years ago.

You have to admit that he is quite correct about this statement. J.J. Abrams and his crew will have access to a large budget and the technology needed to produce high quality visual effects and computer generate imagery. All of this is bound to produce some excellent space battles and lightsaber duels, but not just that - but MUCH MUCH MORE!
It provides the staff a chance to give a unique, insightful look at what the Star Wars universe looks like. Remember those impressive scenes from the Revenge of the Sith? Just think about how well Coruscant was presented and how amazing it looked. It would be great to see other cities and planets as well as massive spacecraft and other amazing sci-fi machines and vehicles.
All in all, things are looking good for the upcoming Star Wars Episode 7 and I am really glad that Abrams didn't take his time to ask John Williams to hop aboard. This is indeed good Star Wars 7 news for all the fans out there!
