Star Wars wouldn’t be Star Wars if it were not for John Williams. The scores the legendary composer wrote for the Star Wars franchise are nothing less than iconic. Back in 2018, Williams stated that he was retiring from writing music for Star Wars. His last work for Star Wars was on the 2019 film, The Rise of Skywalker. Where he also had a brief on-screen cameo. However, if rumors are true, we might be seeing/hearing Williams return for Obi-Wan Kenobi. There is no official confirmation on this rumor, but it certainly is an exciting possibility for fans.


LRM Online is reporting that a source within Lucasfilm, indicates that John Williams is helping to score Obi-Wan Kenobi. The rumor does not state whether he is scoring the entire show or providing assistance to another composer. Given Williams’ age and desire to retire, I don’t believe he’ll be the primary composer for the entire series. This may be a situation, similar to The Book of Boba Fett, where The Mandalorian composer, Ludwig Göransson scored the main theme. Leaving the rest of the series to Joseph Shirley to compose.

It certainly makes sense to include John Williams in the project. As this could be the last time we see Obi-Wan Kenobi on screen, it would be fitting to have Williams there as he was when Kenobi was first introduced.
