This is a fun! Listen to “The Score” podcast interview with John Powell about this score. His respect for John Williams and Star Wars is evident, and his desire to turn out something fitting is truly evident. Whether you like every second or not, you can tell from that interview that this music came from a place of deep love for this franchise’s music legacy. Williams’ Han Theme is new and fun, almost a western/70’s Sci-Fi mix, sounding old Star Trek-esque at times, but still with the Williams’ flair. It’s all new in the sense that it doesn’t utilize old riffs but still fits perfectly in the canon. Powell builds off that, old music, and his own new work to create an action packed score that is a lot of fun, paying tribute to the old and bringing in the new.

About John Williams

You can hum a John Williams theme the minute you leave the movie theater, and you'll probably still be humming it decades later. Case in point: It took just two menacing notes for the legendary New York–born composer to help launch the blockbuster era with his suspenseful score for Jaws—and kick off a subsequent decades-long partnership with its director, Steven Spielberg. But it was the majestic fanfare he penned for Star Wars two years later that really introduced his richly musical but instantly catchy style. Reviving the grandeur of classic Hollywood orchestras, Williams evoked wonder with an intensity to rival any mind-blowing visual effect, while also infusing all that slam-bang-pow onscreen action with surprisingly poignant emotion. He added the perfect swell of tear-inducing strings during E.T.'s indelible farewell scene, coaxed the exotic thrills of classic Saturday matinee serials with his swashbuckling cues for the Indiana Jones series, and engendered a palpable sense of play and adventure in the early Harry Potter films. While his influence still dominates today's superhero epics and intergalactic adventures, Williams has also tackled stories plucked from history's most harrowing chapters, bringing the appropriate gravitas to the unimaginable horror of the Holocaust (Schindler's List) or the political turmoil of the Civil War (Lincoln).
