Star Wars: Darth Vader, Yoda, Runtime Confirmed For 'Rise of Skywalker'

Considering the composer is celebrated for crafting iconic themes for the franchise's characters, it's fitting his final "Star Wars" work will cobble together bits and pieces from each movie. Don Williams is also playing on The Rise of Skywalker's soundtrack, and he offered a tease of what fans can expect to hear as the Skywalker saga comes to a close.

During part of the discussion, Don Williams opened up about working on the Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker score without even being asked about it. The role of Leia Organa will once again be played by Carrie Fisher, using previously unreleased footage shot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We started on it last week. He's got a 135 minutes worth of music to write.

Don Williams also said each theme will be hidden within a larger score and will likely only appear for a few seconds.

"We've done four days and we just scratched the surface", he said".

So that's 2 hours and 15 minutes worth of music that John Williams is writing for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and it sounds like Don Williams is maybe performing with the orchestra on this one too.

This isn't something new for Williams to do as his Star Wars scores have routinely pulled from his previous work in a self-referential way that only John Williams' legendary career could allow. Furthermore, the score used in the film usually differs somewhat from a film's given soundtrack release.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters this December, and with the NFL pre-season just starting up - and because Disney/Lucasfilm has does this with every Star Wars film since 2015 - we're due for a new trailer for the movie at some point in September or early October, during Monday Night Football on ESPN. "I think we've got something like 34 minutes in the can at this point, but I can tell you that every theme you ever heard is gonna be compiled into this last effort". Every one. Leia, Yoda, The Phantom, Darth, all of it's gonna be in there. "He hides them. You gotta go look for them". You'll find them, but you gotta go look for them", he said, adding, "You'll be sitting there watching the film go by and, oh, there it is!

The mention of Yoda's theme and what seems like a reference to The Phantom Menace would have been quite the reveal. But with Mark Hamill returning as the spirit of Luke Skywalker, it's not out of the realm of possibility either.
