Think of Star Wars and you'll most likely think of Darth Vader, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and the intro music.

John Williams' old-school symphonic score is just as iconic as the lightsaber, the X-Wings, and it's hard to think of Star Wars continuing without him. However, the 86-year old composer is calling time on the galaxy far, far away.

In a recent interview with radio station Classical KUSC, Williams explained that he's signed on for Episode IX - but that's it. "I look forward to it. It will round out a series of nine, that will be quite enough for me," said Williams.

Michael Giacchino became the first composer to work on a Star Wars film aside from Williams with Rogue One, whilst John Powell is set to score Solo with the main theme composed by Williams also.

After that and Episode IX, we won't have any more musical moments like this.
