After 2019's Rise Of Skywalker , it was thought composer John Williams' work on the Star Wars franchise had come to an end; but, that may not be the case. There is now a report that Williams may be involved with the Disney+ Obi-Wan Kenobi series; although, what that entails is unclear at this point

According to LRM Online, "We were told that John Williams was helping to score Obi-Wan Kenobi. "

This is followed by a scoop from a OneRing.net interview: ( @ approx. 1:52:50) that says, "...I hope I don't get in trouble, but, since there are no Star Wars fans here, I can tell you that, ...on Friday, at, at a recording studio in Los Angeles, an orchestra assembled,, under the baton of John Williams, ...and the name on the door said 'Kenobi"'"

Is he scoring a single track, like for Solo: A Star Wars Story, or more? As Yoda might say, 'difficult to see, this is.' Obi-Wan Kenobi premieres May 25th on Disney+.

Watch the new teaser trailer for Obi-Wan Kenobi, and start streaming the limited series May 25 on Disney+.
 


The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of “Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith” where Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his greatest defeat—the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.
The series stars Ewan McGregor, reprising his role as the iconic Jedi Master, and also marks the return of Hayden Christensen in the role of Darth Vader. Joining the cast are Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell and Benny Safdie.

“Obi-Wan Kenobi” is directed by Deborah Chow and executive-produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Deborah Chow, Ewan McGregor and Joby Harold

  • JayC changed the title to Disney+ Series Obi-Wan Kenobi Teaser Trailer And Synopsis

Not mega star wars fan, but I hope this will be interesting enough, although I do sense there will be some confusion in non fan audience with timeline with Mandalorian/Fett.

This looks cool, but I wish Obi-Wan didn't have so boring a costume design. George Lucas's movies always had such elaborate designs with rare or unusual fabric textures, even for peasant characters like Owen or Old Ben. Disney has been dropping the ball on that far too often.

Anyway, with any luck it'll take some inspiration from John Jackson Miller's Kenobi novel. Hopefully it'll be more like The Mandalorian and less like The Book of Boba Fett.
