Attack of the Clones was an exciting film for me to make because it explores new territory in the world of Star Wars. It was only fitting that the music for the film also explores new ground. The galaxy is becoming a very dangerous place, the Republic is being torn apart, and the Jedi find themselves faced with mysteries and challenges greater than any they have ever known. To complement the complexities of the film’s story, John Williams had to create a score that truly expanded the musical palate of Star Wars. As always, he has more than risen to the occasion. His score takes us deep into the urban landscape of Coruscant with rich percussion. He complements the adventures on Geonosis with music that evokes the planet’s eerie atmosphere and insect-like population. He heightens the mystery and suspense that drives the first half of the film. And most importantly, he has created a grand love theme, the perfect accompaniment to the developing relationship between Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala. Their love is complicated – pure yet forbidden, personal but with profound ramifications for an entire galaxy. Somehow, John has managed to convey all of that complexity in a simple, beautiful hauntingly theme. And that is the genius of John Williams!
