Natalie Holt , the name behind Loki ‘s music , will handle the score for Obi-Wan Kenobi , the long-awaited series starring Ewan McGregor , coming to Disney + on May 27th. She will be the first woman to deal with the soundtrack of a live action Star Wars title .
As we know, John Williams will also return to the world of Star Wars for the series, of which he composed the main theme. Holt said it is a melancholy theme but with an element of hope. Speaking of her music, he added:
I think it’s an emotional soundtrack, and it has its roots in the Star Wars lore more than The Mandalorian. We had an orchestra of 250 horns and flutes, and I used a hunting horn in the score. We are combining the orchestra with more modern synthesizers. This is what we have always been used to more than the new elements.
