For all of you that worried that the “Bom bom bom bom ba dum bom ba dum” that accompanies Darth Vader every time he ever appeared in one of the Star Wars movies wouldn’t be in the new episodes currently being written and directed by JJ Abrams, you can breathe easy. John Williams, the famous movie composer who has scored all six of the previous films, will most likely be back for Episode VII, which Disney will release in 2015.

“I believe that, going forward, John Williams will be doing that film because he was there long before I was,” Abrams confirmed at a press conference for Star Trek (No Colon) Into Darknessaccording to the Hollywood Reporter. Sadly, there has been no news about the fate of either Jar-Jar Binks or the Ewoks.
