It appears that Star Wars: Andor has “scored” its music composer! Nicholas Britell has been tapped to write the music for the upcoming Disney Plus streamer. Britell’s credits include Succession, Moonlight, If Beale Street Could Talk, Don’t Look Up, Cruella, Vice, The Big Short and The Underground Railroad.
