Enjoying that soundtrack is a far less labor-intensive pursuit these days, and I can often be found slouched in an armchair with Bluetooth headphones pumping the sounds of Star Warsinto my otherwise unoccupied brain. It’s pretty amazing how the power of sound waves alone can spin a yarn as effectively as images on a screen. I remember the first time I heard the NPR adaptation…

double the luck!

Two Star Wars scores were among the nominations for different trophies at the 2nd Annual Society of Composers and Lyricists Awards. Ludwig Göransson’s music for The Mandalorian (2019-present) was in line to take home the award for Best Original Score for a Television Production, with the composer also in the frame in the Best Original Score for a Studio Film category for the Christopher Nolan movie, Tenet (2020). Meanwhile, Gordy Haab was nominated in the Original Score for Interactive Media category for his soundtrack for the hit videogame, Star Wars: Squadrons.

It’s time to unlearn—or, at least, re-learn—what you have learned about galactic history, as Lucasfilm have redefined the “long time ago” of the saga into six distinct eras. With The High Republic expanding the Star Wars galaxy into previously untold points in its history, currently unfolding in books, comics, and the pages of Insider,theFall of the Jedi epoch that follows contains the events of the prequel trilogy and the Clone Wars. Reign of the Empire covers the Dark Times of the Jedi Purge, the adventures of the Bad Batch, and Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018), while the Age of Rebellion encompasses Star Wars Rebels (2014-2018), and the original trilogy. The New Republic era continues to be explored in new episodes of The Mandalorian (2019-present), and upcoming series including Rangers of…
