The famous composer talked with zap2it and revealed what every Star Wars fan had expected…
“We’ve certainly talked about that (Episode7), and I’m happy and willing to do it. J.J. Abrams, who will be the director, seems excited about the idea. I have to say that J.J. is a much younger man than I, but I will try to keep up with him as much as I can!”
“We now have the benefit of all this computer simulation and technical work that wasn’t even possible 20 or 25 years ago.”
“I don’t know how hands-on George Lucas will be — I suspect he will be to some degree — but I can only imagine how excited he must be, to have a director like J.J. have all these tools at his fingertips to produce something even more adventurous technologically. I can’t wait to see what he will do with it.”
And here’s another recent interview with the composer showing that he’s still in a great shape.
