Yes, John Williams was recording yesterday, according to a tweet from Scoring Sessions, exactly as we heard earlier. It’s not confirmed to be for Star Wars, but then, it wouldn’t be, would it?
The rumor mill on a possible early teaser trailer has continued to churn. Here’s what Making Star Wars has heard about the teaser itself:
…We heard the rough edit of the teaser was just a little over a minute long, showing off new characters from the film and culminating with the return of the Falcon to the big screen!
Some still say it’ll be on Mockingjay, others the last Hobbit film next month, or on TV during Agents of Shield. (Or maybe Once Upon a Time? Which gets better ratings? When do the winter hiatuses start?) In any case, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is out next week; The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is out December 17 – almost a year to the day of The Force Awakens release date.
If they are going to drop something this year, I have no trouble believing it’ll be on a non-Disney film. Into the Woods isn’t out until Christmas day, and that’s not exactly the greatest week to publicize anything, even Star Wars. (And if the trailer is out by then, it’s not like it wouldn’t get attached anyway.) Even with the internet to do most of the work, their best bet is to get something out before the holiday begins in earnest.
