‘Indiana Jones’ John Williams on Composing Theme Music: ‘I Had a Great Time’

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate The score for the theme was completed by music composer John Williams two months before the film was released in June 2023 and he spoke about how he felt creating it.

In an exclusive interview with Variety based on his Oscar-nominated work in Steven Spielberg’s film The Fabelmans, the composer thought back to his return to Indiana Jones.

“It definitely has to be an hour and a half of music, maybe more,” Williams said, “But I’m pretty happy with it. There’s a lot of new material. Old material works great as a touchstone from memory, but I had a great time, and I have a theme that I wrote for Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the wonderful actress,” he added.

Williams, 91, went further talking about the full core saying the music is “Unified by the Indy theme and the overall style of the film, which in my mind is kind of an action comedy, because you never take action seriously.”

He further continued, “It’s definitely a swashbuckling affair from start to finish, shaped more like 30s and 40s films where the orchestra runs with the action, which you wouldn’t. not a lot in contemporary films.”

One of the most recognizable things about IndianaJones would be its theme song, composed by the legendary musician.

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate would be the last film in the franchise, which is due out in June of this year.
