A movie can live and die by its soundtrack. Music makes the romance soar, the fight scenes more intense, and the quiet moments resonate. When you have John Williams, a modern master of movie music magic, each beat of the drum and swell in the strings makes the moment more special. One intrepid fan isolated just the music soundtrack to the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, and as exciting as some of the dialogue is, the trailer works just as well, is just as emotional, and tells just as much of a story with only the tunes.


We know at this point you've watched it about 200 times, but check it out once more and just celebrate the majesty of John Williams.
