BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA: Legendary music composer John Williams, who has mesmerized audiences for over seven decades and has a closet full of awards including 20 Grammys and five Oscars, gave his fans a reason to rejoice on January 12. Discussing his nearly five-decade-long collaboration with Steven Spielberg during an American Cinematheque celebration of the duo at the Writers Guild of America Theater in Beverly Hills, 90-year-old Williams rescinded his prior declaration that he would retire from film scoring after his latest projects with the legendary filmmaker.

Williams will work on Spielberg's 'The Fabelmans' and another 'Indiana Jones' film, The Hollywood Reporter reported. Spielberg and Williams are arguably Hollywood's most prolific director-composer duo and have worked together in at least 29 films in the last four decades, each of which has had unparalleled responses. Some of their most celebrated collaborations include the iconic soundtrack from 'ET: The Extra Terrestrial', 'Jurassic Park', 'Schindler’s List', 'Catch Me If You Can', and 'Lincoln'.

When veteran music journalist Jon Burlingame asked him about his retirement, Williams replied, "Steven is a lot of things. He’s a director, he’s a producer, he’s a studio head, he’s a writer, he’s a philanthropist, he’s an educator. One thing he isn’t is a man you can say ‘no’ to." He added, "Also, you can’t ‘retire’ from music. It’s like breathing. It’s your life. It’s my life. A day without music is a mistake.” The statement elicited a joyful response from film lovers on the internet, with several calling Williams the GOAT.

"Artists never retire," a tweet read while another added, "He’s a Legend For This." "Keep on going, legend. That's the spirit," a third wrote.





"Really want to see him win at least one more Oscar," someone said. "It's a great partnership so they should keep working together as long as they want to," another wrote. "Now that’s friendship right there," a fan gushed.
