Recently,  Williams conducted the Boston Pops in a live performance of his greatest work. At one point in the evening, Williams, took a moment to reveal to the audience that he was indeed returning to score Star Wars Episode VIII.

Williams told the crowd he would begin work in a few weeks on the much-anticipated “Star Wars: Episode VIII” after seeing an early cut. (Sorry fanboys, Williams said he does not yet know who Rey’s parents are.)

He said he accepted the invitation from Lucasfilm producer Kathleen Kennedy mainly because he was enchanted by actress Daisy Ridley’s portrayal of Rey and does not want another composer scoring her scenes. (Source)

John Williams is the Man!

Exciting news indeed!
