The 60-Second Force Awakens TV Spot Features New John Williams Music!


force-awakens-60-second-tv-spotStar Wars fans have been waiting to hear their first taste of the new John Williams soundtrack, and last night’s 60-second TV spot featured some of it.

MakingStarWars found this article on Variety that claims the spot includes new music by John Williams:

“The new TV spot includes a portion of the film’s score from composer John Williams, who could earn his 50th Oscar nomination in the original score race.”

It’s always possible that Variety is just assuming it’s new music, but they generally don’t make wild assumptions like that. If Variety says it includes new music from John Williams, then it’s a very good change that this is our first sample of the new Star Wars soundtrack.
