John Williams To Compose “Obi-Wan Kenobi” Disney+ Series
The next new Star Wars live-action series to arrive on Disney+ is “Obi-Wan Kenobi”, which will see Ewan McGregor, reprising his role as the iconic Jedi Master.
The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith” where Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his greatest defeat—the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.
According to Variety, legendary composer, John Williams, will be returning to create the theme for the “Obi-Wan Kenobi” Disney+ series.
The five-time Oscar winner has previously worked on the nine episodes of Star Wars films and has also composed music for “Jaws”, “Harry Potter”, “Indiana Jones” and “ET”.
John Williams was recording with a Los Angeles orchestra last week, which was kept under tight security. It’s not clear if John Williams has composed music for the entire series, or just the main theme song.
The series also marks the return of Hayden Christensen in the role of Darth Vader. Joining the cast are Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson.
“Obi-Wan Kenobi,” the new Disney+ limited series from Lucasfilm, will debut exclusively on Disney+ on Wednesday 25th May.
