Hook Theme

Seeing as there has been endless discussion about the similarity of the Hook theme and the Love Theme from AOTC, I thought I would put in my two cents. I do not know whether or not Williams is aware of the similarity between the two pieces (but if he is, it obviously does not bother him to the extent it seems to bother a lot of you). But if he is aware of it, it does make a weird kind of sense to use the Hook material here...after all, Anakin DOES lose his hand, just like Captain Hook, right???

Personally I think you're all making WAY too much of this.

And by the way, I was at a Boston Pops concert just last night, conducted by Williams, of which the entire program was Williams music. On the program, incidentally, were BOTH "Flight to Neverland" AND "Across the Stars." Nobody stood up and booed at "Across the Stars" yelling that it was the same as the Hook music.
