I had a dream as a boy, fuelled by Star Wars and Dan Dare and Thunderbirds: spaceships, yawning through the void of space, taking me from one adventure to the next. Games have always been a way for me to realise my childlike flights of fancy, allowing me to feel the grace and freedom from unrestricted flight and adventure that normally wouldn’t be possible.

J.J. Abrams speaking at a press conference in Berlin:

Michael Giacchino is an incredible composer, who I was lucky enough to begin working with on Alias. … He’s truly one of the most influential members of our crew, and I think this score, he really outdid himself. Again, for Star Wars, it’s very early days, but I believe that, going forward, John Williams will be doing that film, because he was there long before I was.

On the one hand this is pretty great news if only because John Williams is a great composer and he’s been scoring Star Wars since Star Wars started. It’s also great because the more things to differentiate J.J. Abrams Star Wars from J.J. Abrams Star Trek the better if you ask me.

On the other hand, Michael Giacchino is my favourite composer working today and I’d really. Like to see his take on it.

So I’m of two minds on the subject. What do you guys think?
