J.J. Abrams Expects John Williams to Return for Star Wars: Episode VII

As the pieces for Star Wars: Episode VII come together, many elements that are near and dear to the franchise will likely be returning. TrekMovie.com is reporting that director J.J. Abrams said he expects composer John Williams to return and score the new film. Williams has scored all of the previous Star Wars films and won an Academy Award for Best Original Score for the first film.

In other “Star Wars” news, The Wrap is reporting that visual effects studio ILM is considering opening a branch in London to perform their work on the new film. The reason for a potential move is due to “take advantage of foreign tax subsidies.” The site also mentions the new movie might partially shoot across the pond as well.

Star Wars: Episode VII is scheduled to hit theaters in the summer of 2015.
