The force is still strong with 91-year-old legendary composer John Williams

MICHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Michel Martin. The Force is still strong with legendary composer John Williams. The five-time Academy Award-winner - the man behind the music in more than 75 films, including "Star Wars," "Jaws," "Indiana Jones" and "Harry Potter" - hinted last year that he might be ready to put down his baton. But in a recent interview, the 91-year-old said if something came along that caught his fancy that he likes to, quote, "keep an open mind." It's MORNING EDITION.
