Our friends at Potterish have gotten confirmation from Warner Bros. Brazil that composer John Williams, who wrote the music for the first three Harry Potter films, will return to score the final movie, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2." "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" will be scored by Alexandre Desplat.


Update: While this is indeed exciting news, we still await final conformation on this information from WB.  Stay close to Leaky for the latest!

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" will be in theatres November 19th, and "Deathly Hallows: Part 2" will come out on July 15th, 2011.

…Wait, I’m seeing conflicting reports… I’m not sure now, actually, if this is true… :-/ I really hope it is, though.

Best news ever! I’ve been waiting for John Williams to return since PoA. I can’t add much to your excellent words of excitement at the news! It seems that 99% of you agree so far. (Well, there is that ONE nutter who simply spews outlandish and unfounded hyperbole—but that was fairly predictable.)

I went on IMDB and didn’t see any reference to who the composer would be, so I think there’s still hope!

I liked John Williams until I realized that I couldn’t tell the difference between some of his scores for very different movies. All of his stuff tends to sound the same, and in many instances, the music becomes the most prominent part of a scene. It should be in the background, adding suspense or sweetness or whatever. But Williams’ scores are just about him.

I much preferred Patrick Doyle and Nicholas Hooper and had hoped that one of them would do the last two movies. I don’t know much about the work by the composer for DH Part 1. So no comment there.

I know a lot of people are excited by John Williams coming back, but I’m not one of them.

I think potterish has negated that email they said they got from WB Brazil—according to my rather poor translation of what’s on the site!

YES!! Wish he was doing Part 1 too, but I’ll still take it him doing Part 2.
