The celebrated composer of Venom and Black Panther will bring his style to our galaxy far, far away…
StarWars.com has confirmed that acclaimed composer, Ludwig Göransson will be bringing his talent to the Star Wars universe and will be providing the score for Jon Favreau’s upcoming live-action series The Mandalorian. The composer has risen to prominence in recent years with standout scores for blockbusters like Creed and Creed II before taking on the Marvel universe with noteworthy soundtracks for both Black Panther and most recently Venom.
“Words fail to express how surreal and humbling it feels to be invited into the Star Wars universe,” Göransson said. “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.”
Currently, in production, The Mandalorian is written and executive produced by Jon Favreau, with Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) directing the first episode and serving as executive producer alongside Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson. Additional episodic directors include Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok).
The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal (Narcos) in the title role as a lone Mandalorian gunfighter, alongside Gina Carano (Deadpool), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (Supernatural), Carl Weathers (Predator), Omid Abtahi (American Gods), Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man), and Nick Nolte (Warrior).
The highly anticipated series will be exclusive to Disney+, Disney’s upcoming direct-to-consumer streaming service, which is set to launch in the U.S in late 2019.
