Today saw two major streaming projects from two major studios announce their composers, one for the Disney+ series The Book of Boba Fett (the spin-off of The Mandalorian) and the HBO Max/DC film Batgirl, though both composers hail from their success from the former.
The Book of Boba Fett (Disney+)
Firstly, Ludwig Göransson, who composed the now popular Mandalorian score, is returning to score The Book of Boba Fett and has been doing scoring sessions in the last few weeks. That series is set to premiere on Disney+ in December.
Temuera Morrison will reprise his role as the titular bounty hunter with Ming-Na Wen also returning as assassin Fennec Shand. Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and Robert Rodriguez are serving as executive producers and all three of them will direct episodes for the show alongside Bryce Dallas Howard. Filming for the show wrapped in June and is set to premiere on Disney+ later this year in December.
Batgirl (HBO Max)
Next up, Natalie Holt, who recently composed the score for the hit Disney+ show Loki, has been announced to compose the score for the upcoming Batgirl film. Like , Holt has been set to score the film for some time, but was only allowed to announce her involvement today, which she did on Twitter with a rather cheeky post:
The film will directly stream on HBO Max with directing duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (Bad Boys for Life) set to helm the film. They will direct off a script written by Christina Hodson (Birds of Prey). Hodson also wrote the script for another upcoming DC film, The Flash. Leslie Grace is set to play the titular role. The film is set to be released sometime in 2022.
