Star Wars: The Force Awakens composer John Williams recently welcomed a pair of enthusiastic fans to his scoring sessions for the highly anticipated seventh installment in the space-opera franchise, and they naturally took to social media to praise the Oscar winner’s musical prowess.

The lucky fans’ names? John Boyega and Daisy Ridley, a.k.a.¬†The Force Awakens lead characters Finn and Rey. On Wednesday, the actors posted Instagram photos of their visit to Williams’ world.

Boyega posted a selfie with “The man himself John Williams!” and added, “I watched him make magic today. The music is EPIC!”

Ridley posted a photo of Williams with his arms around her and Boyega, adding the caption “Today is incredible.”

The rest of us will have to wait a few more weeks to hear Williams’ score for The Force Awakens. The film opens Dec. 18, and the soundtrack hits stores the same day.
