A new featurette has been released about Star Wars Rebels composer Kevin Kiner.
Kiner, who was the composer for Star Wars: The Clone Wars, returns to the Star Wars franchise for new animated series Star Wars Rebels. In the featurette he discusses his writing process, musical background and previews the theme for the new LucasFilm show.
Discussing the tone of the music for Star Wars Rebels, Kiner reveals it ‘will have a different sound,’ explaining, “It’s going to be a little closer to A New Hope than Clone Wars was. Now, to be able to go back and start using John’s themes in different ways is exciting for me.”
During the featurette Kiner shows off some of his own string-instruments and he demos the Star Wars Rebels theme which incorporates classic Star Wars melodies.
