Ep. 40 - John Williams' 'The Rise of Skywalker' (4K HDR)
John Williams • Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Music, 22-Feb-2021
Different from the previous episode, this one focuses on a beautiful and tender moment between Ben and Rey, after Ben uses the Force to revive her at the cost of his own life. It was one of the most emotional moments in the entire series, and the music is so beautifully written. It gives the characters space, while also reinforcing what they (and all of us) feel in the moment. It is really what makes John Williams' work so masterfully written.
Williams was nominated for his 52nd Academy Award for Best Original Score becoming the second-most nominated person in history behind Walt Disney. He was also nominated for a BAFTA.
