Ludwig Göransson, known for his work on Black Panther, Creed and Venom, is composing the score for the upcoming television series Star Wars: The Mandalorian.
Announced through the official Star Wars website, Göransson is hot off the heels of Golden Globe and Grammy nominations for his work on Black Panther. Outside of film, Göransson has composed for New Girl and Community on TV, produced records for Haim and Chance the Rapper, and has earned three Emmy nominations for his work with Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover, aka Lando Calrissian).
“Words fail to express how surreal and humbling it feels to be invited into the Star Wars universe,” said Göransson. “I am deeply grateful to Jon Favreau and Disney for this opportunity and to John Williams for raising the bar so high with his iconic, intrepid scores — they will never be matched. In these next months I hope to honor the tradition of Star Wars’ musical landscape while propelling The Mandalorian into new and unchartered territory. And I will try to remember that there is no try.”
