Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Release Date Announced
We are just a little over a week until Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker makes its grand debut in theaters across the nation on December 20th. But that’s not all that is being released! On December 18th Walt Disney Records is set to release the original motion picture soundtrack for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker too!
The album features a new score conducted and composed by five-time Academy Award®-winning composer John Williams. The digital soundtrack will be available first and then the physical album will be available on December 20 as the film opens in U.S. theaters nationwide.
From the physical album’s liner notes, director J.J. Abrams said, “Once again, John has come up with an utterly stunning soundtrack, creating brand new, gorgeous, frightening, mysterious, epic and intimate themes while also revisiting some of his greatest, classic melodies. My gratitude toward John Williams cannot be overstated — not just for elevating every scene in this film, but for providing us all with soundtracks that elevate our lives.”
John Williams stated in the album’s liner notes, “More than 40 years ago, George Lucas introduced to the world his singular imagination, his ingenuity and his creative genius. He also gave me an opportunity never before enjoyed by an operatic or film composer…the chance to work continually for four decades on a single project, and with each film, to add to a collection of musical themes which I hope will be seen as parts of a singular, organic whole.”
“This experience has been one of the highlights of my professional life, bringing me so much joy in working with some of the world’s greatest orchestras and musicians. I stand before the now completed nine Star Wars films with pride and gratitude for the gift of this extraordinary journey.”
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Original Motion Picture soundtrack will be available to stream and download on December 18. The physical album will be available on December 20 and is now available for pre-order.
