John Williams is not going to score anymore Star Wars movies

The legend that is John Williams was talking to California radio station KUSC when he said that that he would probably quit doing the scores for the Star Wars films. Episode IX, due out in 2019 will be his last.

“We know JJ Abrams is preparing one [Star Wars movie] now that I will hopefully do next year for him. I look forward it. It will round out a series of nine, that will be quite enough for me.”

He has scored nine Star Wars films – the original Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return Of The Jedi, The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.

2016’s Rogue One was scored by Michael Giacchino, and John Powell is working on the score for Solo: A Star Wars Story. However, Williams is writing a theme for Solo. “The present plan is that I’m writing a theme for Han Solo, and John Powell is going to write the score, which he’ll do brilliantly,” Williams said.

Sad to hear Williams will be stepping back from the Star Wars films, but he has had one hell of a run with them.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi earned Williams his 51st Oscar nomination, making him the person with the most Academy Award nominations in history.
