In just a few weeks, Star Wars fans across the world will be traveling to Disneyland in California to blast off into a galaxy far, far away, when Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens later this month (August for Disney World in Florida). As Disney is known to do, the company has pulled out all of the stops when creating an immersive new land inspired by the Star Wars franchise. We definitely understand that the buildings, the population general lived-in universe look are all important to making the experience immersive. But there is one key element that will bring all of that together, and that this is the oxygen of Star Wars – the music.
As we previously learned, John Williams, who has scored every film in the core Star Wars Skywalker saga, has returned to compose the music that will play in the background of your adventure at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. To get you hyped for the experience even more than you already are (if that is possible), Disney Music Vevo has released the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Symphonic Suite online (which you can listen to above).
The track has everything you want from a Star Wars track minus the hints of classic themes from Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, or the Empire. In fact I don’t even hear the Resistance or First Order themes in the track. This is unique to itself, but very much Star Wars at the same time.
Check out the music above and let us know what you think by commenting in the comment section below, or on our various social media sites.
