I'm writing this orchestral arrangement of two of John Williams' compositions (Imperial March & Kylo Ren's theme). I will use a program to create a synthesized recording and want to upload it to youtube. No commercial use of the work will be made.

Is this legal?

This is a derivative of a copyright work and you need the permission of the copyright owner.

For music in most countries and the US in particular there is a statutory royalty scheme for performers so you can pay to do this.
