Overview

The most acclaimed and enduring film music in Hollywood history, the original soundtracks of Star Wars Episodes I-VI will be reissued by Sony Classical in a new 10CDs plus DVD box set Star Wars: The Ultimate Soundtrack Collection. With music composed by the legendary five-time Oscar®-winning composer, John Williams, this unique collector’s set is being reissued after the latest chapter in the saga, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, opens in theaters.

Star Wars: The Ultimate Soundtrack Collection includes the original six soundtracks – from Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace to Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi – in mini album jackets on 9 CDs, plus a bonus CD featuring a new audio interview with Harrison Ford (Han Solo) alongside an interview with John Williams.
