New Star Wars Series Coming to Disney+ on May 27
The “Obi-Wan Kenobi” series will make Star Wars history by bringing the first woman to sign and compose the soundtrack for a production of the saga.
the musician Natalie Holtwho previously worked on “Loki” and is present on the “Batgirl” team, has yet to release her score for the production, but spoke briefly about what fans can expect from her in an interview with Vanity Fair (via Alternative Press). .
“I think it’s an emotional trail“, she said. “And it has its roots in Star Wars lore, a little more than ‘The Mandalorian’. We had a collection of 250 horns and flutes, and I used this hunting horn in the score. We’re also mixing the orchestra with some more modern synth sounds. It’s definitely what we’re used to with some new elements.”
In the conversation, Holt declared that he feels “thrilled to be mentioned alongside John Williams“, what “basically narrated [sua] childhood“. She also mentioned other new and cultural influences behind the series’ music.”There are some Latin influences on one of the planets“, he explains.
And he said more: “There are some Thai sounds, some Hong Kong sounds, some more oriental sounds. You definitely take flavors from around the world and then try to turn them into something…out of this world. You are in Star Wars. You are marking a planet. It has to have scale.“
The biggest names in the Star Wars soundtracks is that of John Williams. The composer was present on this one throughout the Skywalker Saga, while composers like Kevin Kiner, Gavin Greenaway, Tim Simonec and Ludwig Göransson acted on the soundtrack of derivative works.
