The Star Wars theme is as iconic as Superman's, but J.J. Abrams won't be changing it as he said John Williams will be coming back for Episode VII.

Speaking at a Berlin press junket for Star Trek Into Darkness, J.J. Abrams was asked a few Star Wars questions with the director letting it be known that they will be sticking with John Williams.

For Star Wars, it's every early days to know, but I believe that going forward, John Williams will be [scoring] that film.

Steven Spielberg recommended John Williams to George Lucas who needed a composer for his 1977 Star Wars film. The Star Wars music score is the highest grossing non-popular music recording of all-time, and has nabbed John Williams many Academy Awards.

Star Wars Episode VII has a 2015 release date directed by J.J. Abrams.
