Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that, once again, John Williams teams up with the London Symphony Orchestra to bring us a dramatic and moving soundtrack for the "last" Star Wars movie. If you're looking for a way to introduce your kids to orchestral music, this could be it.

What's the story?

John Williams conducts the London Symphony Orchestra in a lush and surprisingly moving musical accompaniment to the sixth Star Wars movie, STAR WARS EPISODE III: REVENGE OF THE SITH. The bonus DVD is a wonderful accompaniment to the soundtrack, telling the whole story (with some new footage included) from beginning to end, via musical themes. Some of the visuals might be a little scary for younger kids but there's very little dialogue to worry about -- and of course, no lyrics at all.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

Exquisitely performed as usual, this soundtrack is more varied and fun than some of the others, with familiar melodic themes woven in among new compositions. High points "General Grievous" and "New Hope," for example, may even serve the purpose of sparking new interest in orchestral music.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about how the soundtrack brings the movie to mind -- what scenes can you picture as each piece of music plays? How does the music make the movie action more dramatic?

Movie Wars Episode III: Revenge of the 3rd Best

This was the 3rd best movie out of the whole series. After I had seen the first 3, it was hard to tell which was the best. This was very interesting, but the events played way too smoothly. Something more had to happen, and if you saw the first 3, you could understand what happened halfway through the movie.

Beautiful music

This soundtrack contains some of my favorite songs of all time. Even though lots of the music has a dark tone, its also is simultaneously beautiful. And since its all mostly instrumental there is nothing inappropriate to be found.

Amazing music. Love it.

John Williams is a masterful composer. There's a reason he did all the music for the Star Wars films - he really is that great. Without even watching the movie, you can feel the intensity and the emotion building up in the music. Since there are no lyrics, this is perfectly fine for kids.
