BLACK PANTHER Composer Ludwig Göransson To Score THE MANDALORIAN
Music is just as important to the Star Wars universe as the story, special effects and characters. That task used to exclusively belong to the legendary John Williams. But the brand has expanded rapidly in the last few years, giving other people a chance to honor Williams with their own work. People like Michael Giacchino, who is becoming a legend in his own right, and John Powell have had a crack on it. Now it is Ludwig Göransson’s turn.
Lucasfilm announced that Göransson would compose the music for the first ever live action Star Wars television show. Göransson’s credits include Black Panther, Creed and Venom. He had this to say about contributing to the music library in the galaxy far, far away:
“Words fail to express how surreal and humbling it feels to be invited into the Star Wars universe. I am deeply grateful to Jon Favreau and Disney for this opportunity and to John Williams for raising the bar so high with his iconic, intrepid scores — they will never be matched. In these next months I hope to honor the tradition of Star Wars’ musical landscape while propelling The Mandalorian into new and unchartered territory. And I will try to remember that there is no try.”
Shame on me, I didn’t even consider who could possibly compose the music for The Mandalorian. I was too busy fawning over the cast! This seems like a fantastic choice though, and I can’t wait to hear what Göransson has in store for us. This does seem like this squashes the chances of having an 80’s sitcom style opening for the show though. But I’m sure the internet will do its thing and create one anyway.
The Mandalorian will stream exclusively on Disney + some time next year.
After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
