There's a definitive John Williams sound that screams “Star Wars.” The latest installment of it hits in a CD and exclusive music DVD double-disc set May 3 in anticipation of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith's May 19 theatrical release.
Sony Classical presents a specially created collector's DVD packaged with the film's CD soundtrack titled Star Wars: A Musical Journey. The 70-minute DVD includes 16 brand-new music videos set to selections from all six of Oscar-winner John Williams' film scores. The videos have been designed around a timeline that follows the chronology of events from the entire “Star Wars” saga.
Ian McDiarmid, who appears as Senator Palpatine in the upcoming Episode III, introduces the videos. The DVD features portions of all Williams' “Star Wars” scores in newly remixed and remastered 5.1 Surround Sound.
