J. J. Abrams’s enormously popular restarting of the Star Wars series brought back beloved icons such as Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Chewbacca while introducing a host of new characters to the universe George Lucas created, focusing on a feisty orphan (Daisy Ridley) and a renegade stormtrooper (John Boyega) who team up to battle a new resurgence of the Empire. The film received five Oscar nominations—for Film Editing, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects, and for John Williams’s score. Williams brings back themes from his previous Star Wars scores while contributing a wealth of new musical material.
