Nothing But Star Wars 2A long time ago, we were just stargazing kids, worshipping our letterbox collection of George Lucas’ original Star Wars trilogy. Years later, the Force is strong with us once again as we do the Imperial March towards J.J. Abrams’ highly anticipated sequel, The Force Awakens. To celebrate, we’re spending the next few weeks talking about Nothing But Star Wars! with a rogue squadron of features, essays, and stories. Today, host Blake Goble celebrates the work of John Williams and how the composer scored the galaxy far, far away.
