Great news for fans of the music from The Mandalorian! Ludwig Göransson, the man behind the music of the first Star Wars live-action series, is reportedly coming back to score the first spin-off from the main show, The Book of Boba Fett, which is debuting this December.
The news comes to us from Film Music Reporter. The site states that scoring sessions started few weeks ago. The premiere date for the series is still unknown and it is likely we learn new details about the series on November 12 during Disney Plus Day, if not sooner. On that day, a special on Boba Fett will also debut on the platform.
Ludwig Göransson has already won two Emmys in the category of Outstanding Music Composition for a Series (Original Dramatic Score), for the finales of both seasons 1 and 2 of The Mandalorian. The 37-year-old composer has also won an Oscar for the Black Panther score, as well as three Grammys. He is also expected to come back next year to score the third season of The Mandalorian, though there hasn’t been any confirmation on that yet.
It is currently unknown how the tracks for The Book of Boba Fett score will be released to the public. The Mandalorian season 1 uploaded the score of each episode to Spotify the day the episode debuted. Season 2 took a different approach with two grouped releases, one that contained the score for the first four episodes, and another one with the score of the last four. Göransson was supposedly less hands-on with season 2, which recycled a lot of the themes he created for the first season (though he still provided memorable new themes, particularly in the Bo-Katan and Ahsoka Tano episodes).
