    It is at present unknown whether this is Gordy Haab or an actual track from Williams' new score. The composition is more akin to Haab's work than Williams though. What do you think.

    Hmm, it does kind of have an Indiana Jones vibe. But then, that doesn't mean much, seeing as the first Battlefront was pretty solid as a Williams imitation.

    Disney is extremely tight on not getting any of the score out before the film release, so I would doubt it's from the film score.

    ............and it did include some actual William's tracks from the originals, but I really think this track is Haab's not Williams

    @Background Character, your username and avatar are terrific. And yes, I agree. We might get some version of new Williams stuff in the TLJ trailer or TV spots. But I don't think we're listening to Williams here.

    If legit TLJ score.

    This mirrors a lot the Hoth Battle track from ESB.

    But not as memorable... but HEY, I don't think (I hope) this time the new AT-AT will be the main threat in this battle.

    I thought it was confirmed Haab was doing the music for BFII?

    Haven't listened (just in case), but if this was found in the game files, there's absolutely zero chance it's from TLJ.

    This sounds like the "extended editions" of songs people sometimes put up on YouTube. There may be bits of actual EpVIII score, but they are most likely tiny and sprinkled around the track.

    Disney would never allow EA to add TLJ music until after film release, Disney has been SUPER secretive of ANYTHING TLJ related, that includes the score.

    If this is the kind of music Williams is making for TLJ, then yes please. TFA's soundtrack was so subpar. While not bad, its implementation was really bad, and some of the music just felt Williams going through the motions. Rey's theme is the only good piece of new music in my view. Say what you will about the PT, but the music for those movies was phenomenal. Duel of the Fates, Battle of heroes etc. All contributed in honoring the SWs mythos, while also adding a sense of flare.

    TLJ, I hope music wise, can do the same. But I know that Williams is getting older so I need to keep that in mind. As SWs, music was arguably when he was in his prime.

    Haab is great in that he imitates Williams so well, so if this is Haab - which I think it is - then excellent job, and if it's Williams, then that's directed at the maestro himself.

    I'm hearing some very clear musical callbacks and nods to the prequels, though, which is completely different to Williams' approach (if he wants you to think about the prequels, he will absolutely give you a melody from the prequels) to musical callbacks in my opinion, which were also abundant in some of the season pass tracks in Battlefront (2015), which makes me believe that this has to be Haab, regardless of the fact that TLJ's score is likely under wraps just as much as the film itself (and rightly so).

    We'll have to wait and see, but regardless of whether it's in the film or not, it's a nice piece; if Kevin Kiner is still busy working on scoring the animated stuff when the time comes for Kenobi to be scored, Haab should absolutely be the favourite for the job given his great work with the music so far in both games.
