Not only did composer John Williams produce the legendary music for Jurassic Park, Star Wars and Indiana Jones, he is also the mastermind behind the well known Harry Potter theme tune. You know the one. It’s all twinkly and makes you feel special. John Williams scored the first three Potter films, and his music gave the franchise a magical feeling that I think has been lost in more recent scores. After Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Williams opted to score Memoirs of a Geisha and has since worked on a few Steven Spielberg films such as War of the Worlds and Munich, however there is a chance he could return to score Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II.
From The Leaky Cauldron:
Richard Alexander: In a recent interview John Williams said that he would love to come back and bring his musical storytelling “full circle”. Will he come back for Deathly Hallows?
David Heyman: The question is will John Williams come back? I’m a huge fan of John Williams he did three of the scores and I think he is amazing. He came up with some of the themes that have carried on. We have talked to John Williams and a lot of it will depend on his schedule for [Harry Potter] seven part two. If we can make it work, and that’s a big if, for his schedule and ours then yes.
I would love John Williams to return and score the final film. It would round the franchise off nicely. In case you forget what his music sounds like, here it is below:
