Both have personal pros and cons in our books, but what do you think? Are you a fan of the more original themes of the Giacchino score or all about those John Williams nostalgia feels?

Even though there is probably no way this could possibly be canon given the events of the Battle of Jakku in 5 ABY, it is still very cool to see what could have possibly been the vision of JJ Abrams in the opening of the film.<br /> <br />  <br /> <br /> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48cc5nvsZ_c<br /> <br />  <br /> <br />  <br /> <br /> Need some visuals to go with your podcast listening?
