"Deathly Hallows: Part 1" will be scored by Alexandre Desplat.

Ugh phooey! Hooper’s been my favourite so far. Though I’d love it, truely love it, if in the 19 years later scene Williams keeps the theme from the end of PS and COS as the train pulls away leaving Harry, Ron and Hermione. I ADORE that theme and would love it if they rounded of the series like that. I remember way back when I was 13 and not wanting to leave the cinema, as Harry didn’t want to leave Hogwarts. That theme always strikes a chord with me, please redo the motif Mr Williams, I’d love you for it!

All I can say is Yay!!!!!!! One of the first albums I ever owned was the Jaws soundtrack (yes the original in1975) and I’m thrilled that he will be back for the final HP soundtrack! There were a few good songs added to the originals (Fireworks being one of my favs), but John Williams’ contributions were great for the series – Hedwigs Theme – ahhh! Welcome back Mr. Williams!

I just did a happy dance. John Williams is my favorite composer of all time. He really needs to win an Oscar for HP, not that he doesn’t have plenty already. I’m so overjoyed!!!
