49: Star Wars Scores: And the Rest

December 15, 2019

In the latest installment of Star Wars Month on The Glenn Butler Podcast Spectacular, Glenn & Scott take a whirlwind tour of the musical landscape of the Star Wars franchise outside of the first two trilogies, starting with the Disney era as John Williams returns for the sequel trilogy and other composers start to make their mark on the film franchise. Then they move on to other media from the breadth and depth of the Star Wars musical legacy, including television projects from the Caravan of Courage to Rebels, and even the original score to a book. How much do different tie-in scores feel the gravitational pull of Williams’ original film scores? And which of them are any good?
