Film and television composer Natalie Holt has announced that the soundtrack from the series Obi-Wan Kenobi of Disney Plus is now available to buy and listen wherever you get your music.
The limited series took place ten years after the third prequel, Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, and followed Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) during a time when the Inquisitors were hunting the Jedi to finally bring the Order to justice. to extinction once and for all. for all.
That wasn’t Obi-Wan’s only problem, however, as he was caught between rescuing a mischievous young Princess Leia (Vivien Lyra Blair) and facing off against his former apprentice, Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen), who has turned into Darth Vader.
Holt’s score for Obi-Wan Kenobi was crafted in a way that really brings out the atmosphere, mood, and tone of the series.
The show serves as a darker entry into the Star Wars universe, unlike The Mandalorian or The Book of Boba Fett, but in an echo of the intent set forth by the prequel films; Holt captures this perfectly without losing the lighter yet classic feel of the usual expectations of Star Wars music. Not to mention, Holt is the first woman to score a live production of Star Wars.
