It's been casually mentioned Williams is attached to all three films, but I don't think anything's been finalized.
The Anakin/Vader visions would've been awesome. We don't even need to know if it's really him or Snoke manipulating BenI love the movie dearly, but what 'arc'?
The only character with s discernible arc is Fin.
-Kylo tells us that he is conflicted by the light, but we never actually see jack shit
one of the things that i think is a carryover of the prequels is talking about the light side of the force. or maybe it's a continuation of the video games.
i had assumed that the dark side just meant the bad side. in rotj there's talk about good in vader, but in tfa, there's talk about how how there's still light in ben. why did this happen.
I posted way early this morning. Here's my speculation.
Going along with the Darth Plagueis is Snoke theory. Rumors from before about Anakin's birth was that Plagueis actually did figure out how to manipulate the force (or midicholorians, whatever) to create life, and therefore he created Anakin (which is why his midicholorian count was off the charts) essentially being his "Father".
What if Snoke is Plaguies, and saw Anakin as a failed attempt, so he tried again with Rey. Creating her. Sure it still leaves it open to who her mother may be. But, this could also explain her connection to Luke/Skywalker's since essentially she is like Anakin's sister.
Too far fetched?
While I grant you it's probably the weakest score of the saga (maybe a toss up between this and Clones), you don't just tell John Williams to fuck off because one soundtrack wasn't quite as seminal as you'd hoped it would be. There's still a lot of great music here.
It's not the best SW score but I don't believe anyone else out there would have done a better job.
For him, maybe.
But still pretty good I think.
Except it works well for both audiences. Again this is going to be A LOT of people's first SW movie. It works well in that regard too. I've had many people who saw this movie who have never seen one before love this movie.
I mean of course you would hope they go back and watch the others after this.
Is it weird I'm half expecting Phasma to join the good team in VIII?
Except it's really not a remake of the original at all. Callbacks sure. But this movie is it's own beast and stands on it's own.
Seems to me that Rey is lukes daughter and Luke put her in hiding on Jakku after he saw what happened to Kylo and he destroyed his order.
It isn't that it's not the best. It's one of the worst. I think plenty MIGHT have done a better job. But we'll never know.It's not the best SW score but I don't believe anyone else out there would have done a better job.
Rey's theme is amazing. Surprisingly, probably one of the best in the Star Wars movies.I feel bad for saying but they should get rid of Williams, not a single new memorable theme in the entire film. Fuck, he did amazing work for the prequels if he's not capable of that anymore have him leave along with Ford. Love the man but this film deserved a better score.

He's still a Skywalker.
In sith? I thought it was amazing. This films music didn't come close to any another star wars film.
I could be completely wrong, but I feel like he tried to keep too much of the same feeling with his new pieces in TFA. Rey's theme was a great step in a new direction, purely in terms of instrumentation. I wish we had more like it.To be fair to Williams, this movie's pace is so far off-the-charts compared to the OT, I don't even know if there was enough time to put in a meaninful score, without it being interpreted by banter or a scene change
Someone's post on that R2D2 explanation regarding the novel:
Why in fuck did they cut all this crucial shit from the novel? I don't get it. This is like the 3rd or 4th really needed piece of information that should have been in the movie...
