John Williams Returns to Score “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2”

By Hanako M. Ricks

HollywoodNews.com: Composer John Williams will return to compose the score for the final “Harry Potter” film, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2,” WB Brazil has confirmed to Brazil-based fansite Potterish.

Williams is a legend in Hollywood, having composed some of the indutry’s most well-known and beloved movie scores, including those of Jaws, the Star Wars series, E.T the Extra-Terrestrial, Schindler’s List, and Indiana Jones, among others. Williams composed the scores for the first three Harry Potter films and opted out of the fourth, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, to compose the score for Memoirs of a Geisha.

Williams’ music has received numerous awards and nominations, including twenty-one Grammys, three Emmys, five Oscars, seven BAFTAs and four Golden Globes. His work on the Harry Potter scores have earned him two Oscar nominations (for Sorcerer’s Stone and Prisoner of Azkaban), one Saturn nomination (Prisoner of Azkaban), three BMI Film Music Awards (for all three films), three Grammy nominations (all three films), and three World Soundtrack nominations (including one win for Prisoner of Azkaban).

Alexandre Desplat will compose the score for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1, which is scheduled for release on November 19. Part 2 will follow next summer, with a scheduled release date of July 15.

    OMG! Yes! I can already tell it will win many awards.

    Sadly, it’s been confirmed that this is false. John Williams will NOT be coming back and Alexandre Desplat is doing the music for both Parts. 🙁

    NOTHING has been confirmed yet. Desplat is set only to do Part I of the Deathly Hallows. WB is yet to release an official statement on the composer for Part II.

    I’ll really disappointed that John won’t be making the music for the last of the movie series. He does such good music.

    I was so disappointed when I found out that this rumor isn’t true. 🙁

    I really love John Williams’ film scores and I’ve played and conducted many marching and concert band arrangements of his works. I’m saddened that we won’t be hearing any new Harry Potter themes from him.

    This had better be true. There isn’t a single composer in the world wjhop comes close to having the talent of Jophn Williams and there never will be. If Warner refuse I would NEVER work for them again.
