The Iconic John Williams Takes Over the New “Indiana Jones” Soundtrack

With the new movie Indiana Jones: The Dial of Destiny releasing on June 30th, the soundtrack seems like something special. Written by top movie composer John Williams, it was not his initial intention to do the whole soundtrack. According Williams fan base, “Williams only initially agreed to write just a few themes for the new film. Though once he began composing the individual pieces, he soon decided to write the entirety of the score.” According to Producer Frank Marshall on the fanbase, “Williams brings the special sauce to the movie and the music. The themes that he writes are so recognizable and so identifiable with the movie. It’s just an amazing thing.”

Williams did not only want to write music that amplifies Indy’s last adventure, but would also highlight the emotional moments. Especially those at the end of the film, when the adventure finally ends. As this might be the last time Williams composes something given his old age, the composer has so much to be proud of. He got his start in the Golden Age of Soundtracks and played in the orchestra of former composer, Franz Waxman. He was even a jazz musician back in the roaring ’20s, running the Boston Pops as well as playing around the world as a concertmaster. With it, he has brought home five academy awards and 53 nominations – something no other composer has matched. 

Out of the whole soundtrack, his most notable theme is “Helena’s Theme,” which includes a standout contribution of violin soloist Anne-Sophie Mutter.  According to Williams on his fan base, Jim Mangold told him to “write a theme for Helena that’s like some woman from the ‘40s or ‘30s. She’s adventurous with lovers here and there. All the while doing all these things looking ravishingly beautiful.”

Hopefully the soundtrack lives up to its promises, making Indy’s last adventure a one to remember.
