Abstract

The release of the third instalment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, The Rise of Skywalker, will bring the core Star Wars saga to a close. Leaving aside the strengths and weaknesses the eight films already released may or may not have according to some fans, It is worth reflecting on the fact that there is one element of the franchise that has never faltered. I am referring to the music of composer John Williams, who has composed the iconic scores for all of the Skywalker saga films.
