John Williams Will Compose The Score For Star Wars: Episode IX

While a lot of things are changing for the Skywalker saga, the final movie in the new Star Wars trilogy will sound a lot like all the others. 

Variety reports that legendary soundtrack composer John Williams will score J.J. Abrams' upcoming Episode IX. "I would very much like to complete that," he said.

Williams, 85, has scored every Star Wars movie except for the anthology flicks Rogue One and Solo, however he's writing the theme for the latter. He isn't quite as prolific as he once was, however he did compose the scores for last year's The Last Jedi and Steven Spielberg's The Post. Still, he doesn't have any plans to retire. 

"I don't think you can retire from writing," he said. "I feel very lucky, and the work that I do doesn't depend on much. If your vision's still good, and your hands—I have no arthritis in my hands and I play the piano very easily—I don't think there's any reason to deprive oneself of the fun of working. Music is so rewarding."

Of course, nothing is official from Lucasfilm yet, but we can't imagine they wouldn't want Williams back. Star Wars: Episode IX is expected to hit theaters on Dec. 20, 2019.
