The voice of the Star Wars films has always been more than dialogue. John Williams’ inescapable score set the emotional tone and resonance which transcended the words and direction, transporting modern audiences back to the feeling of the Silent Era when music was the only soundtrack provided. His work indelibly marked film culture in a way that grounded future works of fantasy.
In this episode of Aggressive Negotiations, Jedi Masters Matthew Rushing and John Mills look at the fourth work of Williams’ Star Wars oeuvre, accompanying the retroactively-first film in story order, The Phantom Menace. They discuss its impact and reception at the time, the ties it had to the scores which came before and how it set the expectation for what was to come.
