With production on Star Wars: Episode VII winding down, a new report reveals that a trailer has already been cut for this highly-anticipated sci-fi adventure, with composer John Williams reportedly set to record new music for the footage on November 15. Here's what a source close to John Williams had to say.
"A reliable source just said JW received a trailer from J.J. Abrams on Monday, Oct 20. JW has already written new Star Wars music to accompany this trailer. This new trailer music will feature new music and will be recorded on November 15 in LA with full orchestra. Still determining if the score will be recorded in London due to advanced age of composer/conductor. 14 hour flight to LA not too kind on 82 year old. This is all a secret and this message will be deleted shortly."
It shouldn't be terribly surprising that a trailer has already been assembled, since producer Kathleen Kennedy revealed two weeks ago that there is just three weeks left of principal photography, meaning this is the last week of shooting. Production began on May 15 in Abu Dhabi, with a majority of the filming taking place at Pinewood Studios in London.
Even if this news is true about the first trailer already being cut together, it isn't known when it will actually debut. It's possible that Disney could attach the footage to its highly-anticipated musical Into the Woods, which hits theaters on Christmas Day, or they could even be saving it to run during the Super Bowl next year.
