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.
