Variety has confirmed that John Williams has recorded a theme for the upcoming Disney+ limited series Obi-Wan Kenobi. The composer has recorded the theme last week with a Los Angeles orchestra. The show is written by Joby Harold (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Underground), directed by Deborah Chow (The High Cost of Living) and stars Ewan McGregor in the title role and Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader. They are joined by Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell and Benny Safdie. The 6-part drama takes place ten years after 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, who turned to the dark side as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader. McGregor, Harold and Chow are also executive producing the Lucasfilm production with Kathleen Kennedy (Jurassic Park, The Sixth Sense) and Michelle Rejwan (Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker, Willow). Obi-Wan Kenobi will premiere on May 25, 2022 on Disney+.

Williams’ other upcoming projects include Steven Spielberg’s The Fabelmans and James Mangold’s fifth Indiana Jones movie.
