You can’t have a Star Wars experience without the famous intergalactic music.

Composer John Williams (known for creating the famous film scores we know and love, including Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park, and Harry Potter) will write new music to be featured in Disney’s new Star Wars Lands. Disney is adding Star Wars-themed sections to both Disneyland in California and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World in Florida.

The addition to the theme parks will be called Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. New rides include Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, where visitors can fly Han Solo’s spacecraft, and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, where guests can watch a battle between the First Order and the Resistance first-hand.

The London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios will record Williams’ new music, and will act as the soundtrack to Galaxy’s Edge. The land will open at Disneyland Resort this summer and at Walt Disney World Resort in the fall.
