To tie in with the release of the first three episodes of the brand new limited series, “We Were the Lucky Ones”, on Hulu and Hulu On Disney+ this week, Hollywood Records has released the theme to the series on digital platforms. 

Based on Georgia Hunter’s New York Times bestselling novel, the television adaptation of “We Were the Lucky Ones” is a limited series inspired by the incredible true story of one Jewish family separated at the start of WWII. The series follows them across continents as they do everything in their power to survive, and to reunite. “We Were the Lucky Ones” demonstrates how in the face of the twentieth century’s darkest moment, the human spirit can endure and even thrive. The series is a tribute to the triumph of hope and love against all odds.

The theme was created by Academy Award and Emmy-winning composer Rachel Portman, who had previously worked on “The Cider House Rules” and “Chocolat”. 

Rachel said in a statement regarding the show’s main theme,

“I spent quite a while writing the main title theme for We Were the Lucky Ones. I felt I had to know the story’s material really well before writing it. I wanted it to be compelling, emotional, and full of longing whilst also honoring the hope as well as the loss in this inspiring story. 

The solo cello’s rich voice seemed right for the protagonist in the theme while the piano and string accompaniment kept up the momentum, moving the story forward.”

The first three episodes of “We Were the Lucky Ones” are available to stream now on Hulu and Hulu On Disney+ this week in the United States, with a new episode being released weekly.  The series is also going to be released on Disney+ internationally in many countries, including Australia and Canada, on April 17th 2024.

The full soundtrack by Rachel Portman and Jon Ehrlich will be available on digital platforms on May 3rd 2024.
