Williams for Star Wars VII?!

"He was there long before I was"

At a recent Star Trek Into Darkness press interview J.J. Abrams was asked yet another Star Wars Episode VII question. This one had to do with who would be scoring the music for the film. Abrams had the answer all fans wanted to hear. 

"Michael Giacchino is an incredible composer, who I was lucky enough to begin working with on Alias. ... He's truly one of the most influential members of our crew, and I think this score, he really outdid himself. Again, for Star Wars, it's very early days, but I believe that, going forward, John Williams will be doing that film, because he was there long before I was." 

Check out the full press conference linked below.

This begs the question, who else from the original crew should join the Episode VII production?

These individuals are Mania’s must have crew members for Episode VII

Dennis Muren (visual effects supervisor)

Phil Tippet (stop motion animation: miniature and optical effects unit)

Ben Burtt (sound designer, supervising sound editor)

Did we leave anyone out Maniacs?

Nick Gillard - he did an amazing job with the fight choreography on the prequels.

Nobody ever mentions Peter Mayhew who played Chewbacca. He's the casting for the next movie all the fans are waiting for!!!! :)

So the master is back.  Good, very good.  All is shaping up very well.  These are going to be the best Star Wars since the originals.  I can't even begin to imagine the box office totals in the first weekend.  It boggles the mind.  

What with Ford, Hammill and Fisher on the job all they ned to do is add in the other classic stars.  I agree with monkeyfoot.  Why no news on Mayhew.  I imagine he would be excited for the prospect at being in the new movies. I met him here in Austin and my daughter got a signed pic of him for me. I know he is still very involved in the geek Star Wars community.  Then we need news on Billy Dee.  The New Republic did make Lando a General after all.  If he was still alive Lando would not give up such a sweet spot.

Monkey, I'm pretty sure that Myhew is confined to a wheelchair now. I saw him at Comic Con two years ago and he looked very old, worn and was in a wheelchair.  They coud do a very old and aged Chewbacca - that would be cool.

For some reason I thought of Robin Williams and was about to throw a hissy fit :)

Well I think and IMO the most I care about are the writers and director. And it appears that Disney is trying to get some of the guys from Empire to work on  Eps. 8 and 9. Ep 7 is the Pixar guy I believe.

To be honest I'm sort of borderline on the subject. Sometimes chasing past glory leads to staleness. I'd be ok if they didn't bring any of the past crew or just have them in sort of advisory positions for the most part

 @momitchell7 5 - Huh, Mayhew was not in a Wheel chair when I saw him last year at the local comics shop. He was walking around. I think he had a cane but I can't remember.

@axia777 - Lando was a General already in ROTJ

 I am fine with bringing in new blood to give the series some freshness, but Star Wars needs a Williams score.
