IF AT FIRST YOU AREN’T HAPPY, TINKER AND RETOOL AGAIN
News that George Lucas was shooting additional footage for the original Star Wars trilogy while bashing out Attack of The Clones caused more than a few fans to quiver with excitement. The new extended editions have yet to get any kind of release date but you can bet your last Boba Fett action figurine that hordes of us will be making room for them next to our original, widescreeen, digitally re-mastered, THX optimized and Special Edition copies.
While George has successfully kept all details of the extras beneath his beard, Star Wars maestro John Williams has been scoring the extra scenes and shared a few thought with Dutch music magazine, Score.
“I am thrilled to have the chance to go back to something I composed in 1977 and be able to make the entire saga continuous theme-wise,” said Williams. “Notably absent in the first movie is the Imperial March. Being able to insert that theme in the first movie will create a much stronger emotional flow throughout the Saga.”
“After the release of Episode III George will enhance the original trilogy with additional scenes and special effects, adding my adjustments to the score this will seamlessly branch the entire Star Wars Saga into one massive romantic space opera. I think something of this magnitude has never been done before.”
