In a category one step above rumor, composer John Williams expressed interest in returning for Star Wars Episode VII. For Star Wars fans of all ages, John Williams’ classic music has always been a cornerstone of the franchise, so it’s good to hear that if the movie makers behind the new film would like him to come on board, he’s interested in doing so. Still, there has been some talk about J.J. Abrams’ go-to composer Michael Giacchino who did the music for the Star Tours ride. Either way, we’ll have to wait and see.

The British Library will make public next year a collection of over 100 diaries and letters by Alec Guinness, the actor who portrayed Obi-Wan Kenobi in A New Hope. The documents cover his life in between the 1930s to 2000, so it’s quite possible there will be some notes on his experiences in Star Wars. (via Jedi News)

Star Wars fans in the UK can look forward to a new release of the Star Wars Blu-rays in a special steelbook case. Rebelscum has a copy of the official press release.

If you’re a long time fan of the Modal Nodes then you’ll definitely want to check out Star Wars Underworld’s extensive discography of the band through the years. I’d have to say that I’m somewhat partial to their KISS period.

For more laughs, you can check out Death Star PR which is now on Youtube with a series of videos.

Fans of Aaron Allston‘s last short story “Big Plush” can now check out the author’s story notes online for free. “Big Plus” was a part of the sci-fi anthology Five By Five which included several Star Wars authors past and present. If you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend it.

In art news, Star Wars artist Dave Dorman has opened an online store featuring some of his gorgeous Star Wars prints, and for those with deep pockets, he also has some of his originals up for sale. If you don’t have a Dave Dorman Star Wars print hanging on a wall somewhere, now is a great time to change that.

Rounding out the news, Matthew Stover‘s Heroes Die is in the running for the 2013 Audies. Stover, well known for his Star Wars books, has also written some great fantasy stories and you’ll be hard pressed to find a better one than Heroes Die which includes a bit of sci-fi as well. We wish him the best of luck.
