John Williams, the legendary composer of countless iconic scores for some of the biggest franchises in cinema, is returning one last time to score the final chapter in Skywalker saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
Williams recently talked about the ending to The Rise of Skywalker during one of his concerts where he claimed fans will love how the entire saga is set to wrap up the storyline of the Skywalker heritage. This statement comes courtesy of Terry Matalas, showrunner for Syfy’s 12 Monkeys, who was present at the concert and filmed the clip.
“J.J. Abrams is directing a new film, and I agree he’s doing a fantastic job, and I think, I won’t say anything about it spoiling the ending, it’ll just put you all away. I think you’ll love it,” Williams claimed.

With the release of Episode IX quickly approaching, it’s exciting to be able to listen to yet another one of William’s scores with the inclusion of various themes featured previously throughout the entire saga.
