Following on from the trailer reveal of the new Star Wars series, “Andor” during the Lucasfilm panel at Star Wars Celebration. Variety has revealed that Nicholas Britell will be composing the score for the new Disney+ series.
The three-time Oscar nominee and Emmy winner for “Succession” has been working on the score to “Andor,” for the past two years. He has also previously worked on “Don’t Look Up”, “If Beale Street Could Talk” and “Cruella”.
He explained the sound for the series:
It’s definitely orchestral-plus, I would say. Orchestra features heavily in it. There’s a wide range of sounds, and I’ve created a lot of new sounds. There are strings and brass, but there’s also lots of other stuff too.
Without giving anything away, I would say that [executive producer] Kathy Kennedy, [creator and showrunner] Tony Gilroy, everyone right from the beginning, felt it was very important that we craft a unique set of sounds for this story, for the characters, for the world we’re creating here.
So there’s been a lot of conversation, but actually a lot of freedom too, for me to explore things. Everyone’s on the same page about having a specific set of soundscape textures, sound worlds, for this.”
The “Andor” series will explore a new perspective from the Star Wars galaxy, focusing on Cassian Andor’s journey to discover the difference he can make. The series brings forward the tale of the burgeoning rebellion against the Empire and how people and planets became involved. It’s an era filled with danger, deception and intrigue where Cassian will embark on the path that is destined to turn him into a rebel hero.
