Words cannot express my mépris for Abrams’ rape of the Star Trek universe. Perhaps he will extend his reign of terror to the Star Wars one.
While I love John Williams’ work, there are many talented composers. Zimmer, Shore, Horner, and Elfman come immediately to mind. John Ottman did the score for “Superman Returns” using Williams’ work on the original “Superman” series as a base. He did a fantastic job.
The music and visual effects will be amazing, I have no doubt about it. Whether we the audience will actually CARE about any of it...that’s what’s totally up to Abrams, and I do hope he’s successful after Lucas’ miserable failure.
Oh Puhleezzze, J.J. Abrams is so like the unwashed, funny dressed little kid in the classroom, who stole other kids idea’s for his art projects, and pasted his magazine collages together in a sloppy manner.
Some form of the fanfare will be there for sure, and the crawl, because you just can’t start Star Wars without those. But really we don’t have to have Williams for the whole score, his touch will be there because of the fanfare.
