The Mandalorian will return with new episodes in less than a month, but there will be a change in the music department. According to Film Music Reporter, Ludwig Göransson will not be the composer for the third season of the series. His place will be taken by Joseph Shirley (Creed III), a member of Göransson's team - who worked on the previous two seasons of The Mandalorian - and the lead composer for The Book of Boba Fett.
The reasons for this change are not known, as Lucasfilm has not released any official information about the soundtrack. All signs point to a situation similar to The Book of Boba Fett: Shirley is credited as the composer, but the main theme or leitmotif is composed by Ludwig Göransson.
Ludwig Göransson worked on the soundtrack for Wakanda Forever last year: Black Panther and is nominated for an Oscar in the Best Song category, as we wrote a few weeks ago. In 2019, he won for Black Panther.
The Mandalorian's time is approaching
Din Djarin and Grogu travel to their next adventure in their N-1 starfighter. The Mandalorian has been expelled from his religious sect and must do everything in his power to be reinstated. The only way to do this is to solve a legendary mystery on Mandalore, a planet destroyed by the Galactic Empire and plunged into a long and painful conflict.
The third season of The Mandalorian will premiere on Disney+ on March 1st next year. It will coincide for a while with the animated series The Bad Batch (Season 2), which has already aired its first seven episodes. In fact, the last two episodes told one of the most anticipated stories: the abrupt transition between the army of clones and the army of recruited citizens.
