GALAXY'S EDGE BY JOHN WILLIAMS -- Academy Award-winning composer John Williams has written a new Star Wars musical theme for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Disney’s largest single-themed land expansions ever at 14 acres each coming in 2019 to Disneyland Resort in California and Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. The new theme is incorporated into two signature attractions in the land.

LISTEN: Preview of John Williams’ Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Score for Disney Parks

Earlier today we learned the name of two rides that will be featured at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and now we’re hearing our first snippet of the score that will be played throughout the land.

Earlier this year it was rumored that legendary composer John Williams, who wrote the score for the original Star Wars films, would team up with Michael Giacchino to provide music for the land.

Entertainment Weekly confirmed that Williams will provide an original score for Galaxy’s Edge and provided a preview of the music guests will hear when the land opens in Summer 2019 at Disneyland and later at Disney World.

The song will be the theme for Galaxy’s Edge, according to Entertainment Weekly, and was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London.

It’s not clear if Williams’ score will also be featured in the new Star Wars hotel set to open sometime after Galaxy’s Edge.

I’m glad that Disney shelled out for the best. John Williams score is the key ingredient to the Start wars movie. Often overlooked. Without it, I don’t think the movies would have been a success. He is that gifted. Now if Disney could only shell out money to make the rest of WDW experiences safe and meaningful. We were at the park yesterday, only one lane to enter Animal Kingdom open? 30 minute line to enter? 12 others closed for being cheap on staffing? Seriously!?
