J.J. Abrams believes that John Williams will score Star Wars: Episode VII

Composer already thought to be keen

J.J. Abrams has teased the return of another Star Wars legend, claiming that he believes composer John Williams will return to score the forthcoming Episode VII.

Williams has already been quoted as saying he hopes to be invited back to the franchise, and Abrams seems to think that dream will likely become a reality.

"For Star Wars, it’s very early days, but I believe that going forward, John Williams will be doing that film," says Abrams, "because he was there long before I was."

Abrams had previously commented that "it sure would be neat to hear composer Michael Giacchino’s take on a Star Wars score," but it now sounds as though his long-time collaborator will take a back seat on this one.

As with everything Episode VII related, nothing is confirmed as yet, but hopefully we'll be hearing Williams' ear for a tune at work when the film arrives in 2015.

      there is no one for this job other than williams, he was even one of the good things about the prequels, Duel of Fates is one of the best star wars themes.

      Thank God, I was worried he might be too old. Star Wars without Williams isn't Star Wars.

      I am happy that Williams is hoped to return by Abrams, but I would lie if I said I don't worry about his age. I wonder, would a John Williams - Michael Giacchino collaboration be too far out for purists?
