Boston Pops Laureate Conductor John Williams will probably score the next “Star Wars,” says director J.J. Abrams. “Again, for ‘Star Wars,’ it’s very early days, but I believe that, going forward, John Williams will be doing that film because he was there long before I was,” Abrams said during a press conference in Germany for his new “Star Trek” movie. Williams, who’s responsible for all previous “Star Wars” scores, conducts the Pops’ “Film Night” in June.
