What do you think about when you hear the words Star Wars? Most likely the classic scenes, characters and story lines come to mind but don’t forget about the iconic music. Ah yes, I am pretty sure you just hummed the first few bars of legendary composer John Williams’ Star Wars (Main Title) instrumental from 1977. Bob Chapek, Walt Disney World, Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products Chairman announced at this weekend’s D23 Destination D event some news regarding the music of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
Chapek announced that legendary composer John Williams is currently working on new and original theme music for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The music is currently being recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios. Williams involvement in the composition of the musical atmosphere brings the authenticity of this land to a whole new level.
Disney shared a little behind the scenes look at Williams and the London Symphony Orchestra in action together with a cinematic look at the current state of construction of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Make sure you turn those speakers up to enjoy some of the land’s new theme music.
