John Williams in Disneyland: The Story Behind His ‘Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge’ Theme

For only the second time in more than four decades of “Star Wars” music, legendary composer John Williams has written a new theme for a “Star Wars” project that is distinct from his film scores for those galaxies far, far away.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the much-anticipated attraction that will open at Disneyland on May 31, inspired the five-time Oscar winner to pen a five-minute “symphonic suite” that musically encapsulates the remote outpost on planet Batuu along with the various outlaws and rebels that parkgoers will encounter there.

Interviews with those closely associated with the project say that Williams’ participation was a long time in the planning stages. Matt Walker, executive in charge of music for Walt Disney Imagineering, tells Variety that since the outpost didn’t exist in the films, it would need “its own score, one that belonged to it, but of course lived within the universe of John’s writings for the films.”

This site has price listings for a lot of the Galaxy’s Edge merchandise.   Looks like most of my purchases will be from the Toydarian Toymakers.

Oh darn. The website is blocked at work.  But I can feel that emoji that's a dollar sign with wings flying away DEEP IN MY BONES.  I'm going to hemorrhage so much money there before I even get to SDCC.  I'm already aiming for the $200 lightsaber and I really really should not.

You can bounce off of a Web proxy to get around blocks.  That is unless the Web proxies are blocked too.  Beware to never type any personal information into a Web proxy.

If you are into FX lightsabers, a couple are on sale at Barnes and Noble right now for less than $50 that normally sell for $200.  Stock is gone online and low in a store now since it's been this price for a few days.  But it never hurts to check your local store.  You do have to order it online for in store pickup to get these prices.

There's nothing to setup with a Web proxy.  It's just a website you go to.  You go there and then enter the URL you really want to go to and it acts as the middle man.  For example a well known Web proxy is translate.google.com.  You used to be able to use it as a general Web proxy but Google got hip to that and now only allows you to use it if the target language is different from the source language.  Before it would let you translate form English into English so it could be used as a general proxy.

Not to derail too much, but I'll just say I don't currently know of any unfortunately.  I apologize if I got us off topic.  Was mainly just saying even sight unseen I know I'm going to be dropping loads of cash haha

There are plenty of them.  Just type in "web proxy" into your favorite search engine.  I just thought I'd mention it in case anyone has problems looking at something because of blocks.

Looking forward to your report, Alyssa!

Seems like you guys have 2 slots, an 11-3 and a 2-6?  I’ll be curious to know how they handle this and whether you’ll need to go 2 separate times to pick up wristbands?  I have the same situation with an 11-3 and a 2-6 when I go in June.
