"Obi-Wan Kenobi": Composer Confirmed, New Covers Revealed

 

It was rumored for some time that John Williams, who had composed every main Star Wars film (minus the spin-off films Rogue One and Solo), was returning to score the Obi-Wan Kenobi limited series on Disney+. This has turned out to be partly true. The main composer for the series will be Natalie Holt who previously scored the hit Marvel series Loki. However, in an interview with Variety, Holt has confirmed Williams will return to create the theme for Obi-Wan himself:


“Obi-Wan is a legacy character that John hadn’t written a theme for because he died quite early on in A New Hope. It’s the only legacy character that he hadn’t done.
So he spoke to [Lucasfilm president] Kathleen Kennedy and said, ‘I just want to write [an Obi-Wan] theme.’ So who can deny him that? And he did, he wrote the Obi theme, and it just embodies the spirit of the show entirely.
Obviously, I’m just thrilled to be mentioned in the same breath as John Williams. It’s been exciting and overwhelming at times, because I’m such a fan. I want to pay respect to the history of it, and do it justice as well.”

This is good news for many who might find Obi-Wan as one of the last connections to the original films as Lucasfilm has tried to introduce new characters into the franchise, namely The Mandalorian. But it's good to know what while new creative forces have taken on the popular Jedi Master that his spirit (a la his musical theme) will be composed by one who knows the character best. In addition, Total Film magazine has released two new covers for the limited series, giving a detailed look at Obi-Wan's lightsaber. Check them out below:

Obi-Wan Kenobi is set to premiere it's first two episodes (of it's six episode order) on May 27th on Disney+.

Uncharted - 5/10


Very cartoonish and forgettable. But at least it had more heart than 'the batman'

yep, Marky Mark was never an actor. but chicks dig him ever since 'Boogie Nights'. Tom Holland seems like a nice kid but I can't take him seriously as a strong leading male character in movies.

The Batman 4/10


Long, boring, flat and low on action. Pattinson is a very weak Batman, too skinny and lacking a strong screen presence. The Story was weak and the general mood was very depressive for no good reason. on the positive side the camera work, score and production value were decent. and the ending with Joker was predictable. overall, one of the weakest Batman movies ever made.

word to mouth on Joker was strong. people are not stupid, the batman fans will blindly build a hype but the rest of the viewers will be honest and tell their friends 'The Batman' was a dud.
