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?
