The Disney+ original series The Mandalorian has been one of the first original series to debut when the streaming service came out. We got to see a bounty hunter, space battles and Baby Yoda. Now we have a music video!
The Oscar-winning composer Ludwig Göransson created the theme song for the show and this video is shown how it’s made.
In this video, Göransson is seen playing his instruments in his room and in front of the Madalorian helmet. He is then playing in several different scenes during the series. We get to witness the composer create the theme song and imagine himself in the Star Wars world.
According to an interview with Vanity Fair, the show’s music owes an influential debt to Ennio Morricone, an Italian composer who passed away this week at age 91. Göransson said:
“I don’t know how you can be in this field and not be inspired by his achievements and his music. Just the way he experimented in production, the way he brought in different styles of instruments combined with each other, and he really pushed the envelope so far and he made it also sound so simple and so close. In The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, it’s a similar idea, is that it’s two notes. But immediately when you hear it, it resonates with your whole body. That was a magic power that Ennio had, to be able to make these interesting combinations.”
Season two of The Mandalorian is scheduled to be released in October. Until then, this new music video of the theme song is another reason to enjoy the series.
