John Williams Will Score Star Wars: Episode IX

The last Star Wars movie premiered a few days before Christmas, conquering the box office on opening weekend and in the weeks that followed. In between we see him use the Jedi mind trick and make a Stormtrooper hear something that's not there, before pushing Luke to "use the Force" and go all Bend it Like Beckham on a pair of photon torpedos.

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.

It's a little frustrating that Rian Johnson had to explain this when many had already assumed this fact, mostly because it's something that shouldn't really require an explanation.

Hiring a veteran defensive coordinator was paramount for Nagy, a first-time head coach who will be directing the offense. The Bears defense finished in the top-10 in points allowed (9th), total yards (10th) and passing yards (7th) in 2017.

In an interview with Variety, John Williams spoke about his long history as a composer and his desire to do the score for Star Wars: Episode IX. During the climax of the movie, Luke, or at least Luke's Force projection of himself, fights Kylo Ren. "We hope that these references make sense to the fans and make the aural connections that we want them to have".

This is a detail that hasn't sat well with fans, because Kylo Ren was just part of a struggle to obtain the lightsaber with Rey (Daisy Ridley) on Snoke's ship. According to Rian Johnson, Kylo didn't know it was destroyed.

"We as an audience saw that..." The truth is, we see the lightsaber split in half, Kylo sees a blinding flash of light and is knocked unconscious, and then Rey takes the lightsaber away before he wakes up. He draws his lightsaber, and Luke Skywalker does the same. Many believe he destroyed it after sinking the X-Wing on Ahch-To as he denounced the force, and that the crystal he wears around his neck is actually the Kyber crystal from this lightsaber. He'll also be writing the theme for Ron Howard's upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story movie, which will focus on Han Solo's formative years. They make you feel like family, they were so welcoming, so accommodating and so friendly. We certainly can't accuse him of making lazy mistakes at this point.
