Question: At the end of Star Wars IV: A New Hope when the gang are dishing out medals to each other for a job well done, are the assembled troops in the hall actually hearing the celebratory music as they do so? And if so, do they also hear it as it transitions into the familiar Star Wars theme? And, therefore, is the Star Wars theme a known and recognised piece of music within the Star Wars universe? And if so, what does that do for John Williams’ royalties?
