A key player in the “Star Wars” universe says he’s ready to leave the franchise. The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision reports that legendary composer John Williams indicated he will score “Episode IX,” and after that he wants to be done with “Star Wars.”

Williams, a five-time Oscar winner, is quoted in an interview with radio station KUSC saying: “We know J.J. Abrams is preparing one now for next year that I will hopefully do for him, and I look forward to it. It will round out a series of nine and be quite enough for me.”

Williams, 86, won an Oscar for Best Music, Original Score for the first “Star Wars” movie, released in 1977. He has also won for “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Jaws,” “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” and “Schindler’s List,” and has more than 50 total Academy Award nominations.

  1. Goodbye John! Your fallible human mind was barely enough to create those mediocre scores. It’s fitting you leave – just a matter of time that AI will write AND play musical scores. After all, why would we want to hear orchestras made up of hundreds of lousy humans when we can get the same from a single computer “mind” that also brews coffee (say goodbye to Starbucks too). Now, once we can get rid of over priced emotional actors with some robots then I’d say we are heading into truly great times! (Like when they started colorizing black and white films – a true breakthrough that took the world by storm!).
