John Williams Starting Work On Star Wars: Episode VII In Two Weeks

It's almost time to start humming the Imperial March again. Composer John Williams confirmed over the weekend that he is only two weeks away from working on the score to Star Wars: Episode VII.

Williams made the brief, but significant announcement while conducting a concert with the Milwaukee Symphony in Wisconsin on Friday night. Williams, of course, composed the musical score to the six previous Star Wars films, and is responsible for the series' iconic theme, Darth Vader's Imperial March, and more.

We don't know if Williams is simply composing, or recording a draft with an actual orchestra in two weeks, but his involvement is definitely a benchmark in Episode VII's development.

Check out the celebrated composer's announcement in the video below.
