John Williams Will Score Star Wars: Episode IX

John Williams Will Score Star Wars: Episode IX

Last year, Mark Hamill set off a flurry of speculation when he told Empire Magazine there was a big, last-minute adjustment to the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, that would have changed something about the then-upcoming Last Jedi. Hopefully this puts the nail in the coffin of at least one complaint about The Last Jedi, though there are undoubtedly plenty of others that won't go away no matter what Rian Johnson or anyone else has to say.

Take the film's final confrontation on the crystal-strewn planet of Crait, where Luke Skywalker baits Kylo Ren into the one-on-one confrontation (so it appears) that his power-thirsty nephew has been craving. Recently on Twitter, a debate started up regarding whether or not this really worked in the film, considering the ability to do such a thing had never been previously hinted at in the Star Wars franchise.

"When I read [The Last Jedi] before [The Force Awakens] came out, I said 'what?!" and called JJ [Abrams] or Rian [Johnson] to say, 'Are you guys aware of this?

I should stay out of this but... were ANY aspects of force use in the OT (force grabbing objects, force ghosts, even the jedi mind trick) explicitly "set up" before they happened?

It's a fair point.

Besides work on the sequel trilogy, Williams has also confirmed that he'll be writing a theme for the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story. Who knows, perhaps we will get to see a returned Luke utilise his green saber in Episode IX.

"We as an audience saw that..." "And when the Force is referred to or felt, we want to hear the Force theme, and so on".

For some, this was an obvious hint that Luke was actually using a powerful force projection technique against Kylo, because surely the famed Jedi couldn't be using Anakin's broken saber. This would certainly be taking the idea to an extreme, but we're certainly led to believe that what Luke does is extreme. According to Rian Johnson, Kylo didn't know it was destroyed.

Just as Star Wars: The Last Jedi prepares to enter the all-time top 10 - it's already left Iron Man 3 ($1.21 billion) and Minions ($1.15 billion) in the dust - Forbes brings word that the Lucasfilm sequel has been written off as a box office flop in China.
