Our friends at Potterish have gotten confirmation from Warner Bros. Brazil that composer John Williams, who wrote the music for the first three Harry Potter films, will return to score the final movie, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2." "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" will be scored by Alexandre Desplat.
Update: While this is indeed exciting news, we still await final conformation on this information from WB. Stay close to Leaky for the latest!
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" will be in theatres November 19th, and "Deathly Hallows: Part 2" will come out on July 15th, 2011.
YIPPEE! I was so hoping he’d come back (or at least if Patrick Doyle didn’t). It’s so fitting that he should finish what he began, rather like the 2 posters that mugglenet put together: from the first film, “the magic begins” and from the last “it all ends here.” I know he’ll do an extra special score.
@rotfang, gee, got a little carried away there, didn’t you? and, just curious, but if you wear earplugs for DH2, how will you hear any of the dialogue? Oh, right, you think JW’s music will drown it all out anyway.
This feels right! Williams set the tone in the first and will do well in conclusion, I think!
I’ve been re-reading all the books again. It isn’t going to be easy to wait for the second part but I am so glad the book is in two films.
WOW this is great news!!! I loved the Music from Movie 1,2, & 3!!! It will be AWESOME to have it for the last Movie
