What's up with John Williams and Harry Potter?

Okay. So i've heard that John Williams won't compose a theme song for Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, because he doesn't have time, or something like that. I didn't really get that. Can someone explain what's up?

    Well, John Williams is one of the most famous composers of movie music.....so he's probably really busy....although if i were him I would clear my schedule for Harry Potter....and I love JW....but.

    Alexander Desplat's music IS super good.

    I mean...he has worked on a number of scores for the Harry Potter movies already.

    As we all know, they're up to the 8th movie now. I think everybody involved is just a bit over it.

    Not the fans, just the people involved. As for JW, perhaps he really has booked all his time already.
