Legendary composer John Williams wrote a theme for the Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge park that opened last year at Disneyland and Disney World, and it earned him another Grammy win.
On Sunday night, at the 62nd Grammy Awards, Williams took home the award for Best Instrumental Composition for his score for Galaxy’s Edge. It’s a beautiful theme, and you can listen to it here.
Galaxy’s Edge has been a massive push for Star Wars recently, and it’s pretty cool to see that the man who has done so much to make the franchise work and become beloved over the years be honored for his contributions to it. Of course, you won’t hear the theme in the park all that much (since the goal is to immerse you in the universe), but it’s still wonderful to listen to.
It is Williams’ 25th Grammy award, and it is his seventh for his work on the Star Wars franchise. He has previously also won Grammys for A New Hope (Best Instrumental Composition, Best Pop Instrumental Recording, and Best Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or a Television Special), for The Empire Strikes Back (Best Instrumental Composition and Best Album of Original Score Written for a Motion Picture), and The Force Awakens (Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media). He has been nominated 16 times for his work on Star Wars films.
