  1. Jesus, production hell is the name of the game for Disney Star Wars
  2. I agree, but I'm fine with the drums in Solo, particularly on the deluxe version where they sound less processed. I'm okay with a bit of out-there orchestration if the foundation of the score has that lovely traditional orchestral Star Wars sound which Solo 100% has Odd, that contradicts the credit on spotify where it says William Ross is the sole composer of "End Credits"
  3. I mean, Kenobi ultimately ended up being generic Star Wars in tone so yeah a swashbuckling sound would've fit just as well as it fit in the originals Just out of curiosity, how did you feel about the drums in the Kenobi show?
  4. I made the mistake of listening to this after the Kenobi album: Hearing this energy and sophistication of writing is like feeling the warmth of the sun on your face after staying the night in a cold damp cave
  5. It genuinely feels like Spotify has accidentally auto-played a cue from a different soundtrack whenever the William Ross tracks play. There really is no good reason William Ross shouldn't have been in charge of the whole thing from the start The Journey Begins is a lovely track EDIT: I take that back slightly, 'Bail and Leia' is pretty decent and the jump from 'The Journey Begins' to it was not that significant
  6. I had a very similar experience, although I had previous expectations for the Tuskens thanks to my experience with KOTOR 1 which gave them a surprisingly rich history. I think the key is contrasting Tusken society with other societies, and since BOBF doesn't really flesh out any other society it falls flat for me. New additions to their culture just confused me, like the lizard that goes into your brain and makes you hallucinate going to a tree and getting the resources for your gaffi stick Please do, I think it fits really nicely with their KOTOR depiction
  7. Yes, fleshing out the Tusken Raiders would fit very well with an Obi Wan series. Not like how BOBF did it though, that was thin and awful. The Kenobi novel fully fleshes out their culture and values as well as their unique way at looking at the world and I got absolutely none of that from BOBF I don't need anything directly to do with the Sith to get a sense of what it was like to be Obi Wan post the events of Revenge of the Sith, the less they're aware of Kenobi the better in terms of keeping continuity
  8. The original plan for when "Obi Wan Kenobi" was still a movie was an adaptation of the EU novel "Kenobi". Here's a synopsis of it: And here's the synopsis TMZ reported back in 2018 (apologies for the weird phrasing, TMZ is an odd publication) https://www.tmz.com/2018/05/17/obi-wan-kenobi-star-wars-story-movie-plot-director-production/: This is completely 1 to 1 with the novel, so that's my proof it was originally planned to be an adaptation of it The novel is fantastic, highly recommend checking it out, especially the audiobook version read by Jonathan Davis who does a masterful Obi Wan voice
  9. Wtf how was Episode 4 that good? I’m kind of in disbelief that I just watched an episode of television, that was ostensibly The Orville Movie as far as I’m concerned I can’t get over how damn seamless and stunning the visual effects were, absolutely gorgeous art design all around The music was stunning yet again, that Joel McNeeley never ceases to keep a smile on my face as he confidently flourishes the orchestra. Very interesting March-like piece that accompanied a certain scene that I really hope is on the album (this series better be getting a release I swear to god) This episode had some more meat to it in comparison to others this season with regards to exploring a moral quandary and it really carries with it a sense that this was a series of events that was significant for not just The Orville crew but the entire galaxy. Some of the best acting in the series by far. Episode 4 just really had everything in it, definitely one of my new favourites
  10. I wouldn’t be so sure, here’s an account from Mark Griskey on the music of KOTOR 2:
  11. That’s actually a little odd, wouldn’t The Emperor want Obi Wan dead, especially by the hands of Vader? He wants him to cut his ties to the past so he has complete control over him after all Interesting. I hear only a few instruments so I would hazard a guess this was performed by a chamber orchestra
  12. I heavily resent the idea that LucasArts scores were all written with the intent to be pastiches of John Williams. The composers made an effort to fit within the Star Wars soundscape and in most cases still retained their musical identity. Mark Griskey, Jesse Harlin, Jeremy Soule etc. Haab is really the only one that gets close to pastiche territory as he pulls from a LOT of Williams scores. Is it possible some of the games had the intent of being scored with pastiche? Certainly, likely EA Battlefront given the reliance on the original music, you kind of have to go that approach or it’ll stand out like a sore thumb. But to paint every LucasArts Star Wars project like this greatly detracts from what these talented composers were able to achieve
  13. The West End role-playing games are such an interesting point of history for Star Wars canon. From what I understand, and feel free to correct me if you know better, they formed the foundation of a large chunk of the expanded universe in part thanks to their significant influence on Zahn's Thrawn Trilogy. However, they also existed in a bit of a 'wilderness' period for Star Wars canon where it wasn't until Zahn's Thrawn Trilogy that there was a concerted effort to consolidate everything into maintained continuity. If that's the case, then it would explain why that particular part of West End was contradicted down the line as it pre-dated that canon consolidation effort
  14. What Legends continuity contradicts this? The Infinities story about Skippy the Jedi Droid doesn’t count as it’s explicitly non-canon to Legends
