Sure, he’s a major part of the Star Wars family, inventing the most famous of movie scores, but that doesn’t mean composer John Williams is a big fan of the movie franchise. In fact, he said he’s never seen one of the Star Wars movies all the way through.
Seriously? Yeah, seriously.
That’s what he admitted during an interview with the Mirror, saying he doesn’t think his iconic musical pieces are all that special, anyway.
“I let it go. I have not looked at the Star Wars films and that’s absolutely true,” Williams told the newspaper. “When I’m finished with a film, I’ve been living with it, we’ve been dubbing it, recording to it, and so on. You walk out of the studio and, ‘Ah, it’s finished.’
“Now I don’t have an impulse to go to the theater and look at it. Maybe some people find that weird, or listen to recordings of my music very, very rarely.”
In some ways, not listening to one’s work afterward doesn’t seem that unusual. Sometimes, actors don’t like to watch the movies they’re in, and sometimes, authors don’t read the books they’ve written. But because Star Wars has been such an global force for the last four decades, it does seem a little strange that Williams hasn’t had the interest to watch.
But as far as how good his work has been in the series, he’s not impressed with himself.
“I don’t know. A lot of them are not very memorable,” Williams said.
