We’ll “hear every theme” in John Williams’ Rise of Skywalker score

Percussionist Don Williams, the brother of Star Wars composer John Williams, has an update on The Rise of Skywalker score. He says John has “135 minutes worth of music to arrange” and that “every theme” will be heard, though “you gotta go look for them.”

If The Rise of Skywalker does come out to 135 minutes long – and I’ll let the music/composing experts debate that one – it means that at 150 minutes, The Last Jedi will remain the longest Star Wars film.

You can see the full interview on Youtube.

  1. The score length for The Last Jedi was 1 hour and 18 minutes; about half the running time of the film.

    If the ratio holds up, we may need an intermission :).
