Product Overview

The motion picture soundtrack features a new score by five-time Oscar(r) winner John Williams, who is also the previous composer and conductor for the previous Star Wars films. It includes an exclusive collector's DVD: Star Wars: A Musical Journey.

Created especially to accompany the CD release, the thrilling 70-minute DVD features 16 brand-new music videos set to selections from all six of John Williams' unforgettable Star Wars film scores and has been designed around a timeline that will take the viewer chronologically through the entire saga. Each movement is introduced by actor Ian McDiarmid (who plays Senator Palpatine in the films) and features a spectacular montage of images, complete with excerpts of the original dialogue and sound effects, set to Williams' legendary music which has been newly remixed and remastered in 5.1 surround sound. Williams' principal theme from the new score, entitled "Battle of the Heroes," will be featured in a music video created by Lucasfilm.

The soundtrack packaging will also include liner notes from George Lucas plus an exclusive fold-out poster featuring a montage of images from the film.

Album Notes and Credits
Composer: John Williams .
Personnel: London Symphony Orchestra.
The last installment in the STAR WARS prequel trilogy, REVENGE OF THE SITH offers stunning music by legendary film composer John Williams. Like the other five soundtracks in the series, the music here is almost entirely orchestral. However, for this film, Williams supplements his symphonic writing with a vocal choir. The choir complements the score best on the dissonant and murky "Anakin's Betrayal" and the equally spooky "Battle of the Heroes."
In REVENGE OF THE SITH, Williams revisits themes from earlier STAR WARS films. "Anakin's Theme," first used in THE PHANTOM MENACE, appears in much more complex form with "Anakin's Dream" and "Anakin's Dark Deeds." Like the character himself, this leitmotif grows tormented, angry, and dark. "The Birth of the Twins and Padme's Destiny" is another track that cleverly bridges the STAR WARS series together. Here, Williams uses his Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia themes, created decades earlier, to suggest hope, righteousness, and beauty. Despite this, REVENGE OF THE SITH chronicles the rise of Darth Vader, so this soundtrack is generally eerie and foreboding. Powerful Wagnerian brass figures, sharp percussive effects, spectral vocals, and weighty strings become this powerful score's most salient features.
