We're only a month away from the premiere of the anticipated Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor and as it stands, there are still things we don't know about the project from the production side of things. According to a new rumor, Lucasfilm has enlisted Loki composer Natalie Holt to write the score for the entire series with Star Wars icon John Williams in charge of doing the show's main theme.

Other names like Solo: A Star Wars Story's John Powell and Michael Giacchino, who recently wrote the score for DC's The Batman have also been heavily speculated by fans to be joining the project but nothing has officially been confirmed yet.

Now, amidst all of the rumors, Disney is breaking its silence to bring some much-needed clarity to the fandom. Cinilinx's Editor-in-Cheif Jordan Maison (via The Direct) has apparently reached out to the House of Mouse and they gave him a pretty intriguing answer. In a tweet, Maison wrote: "Reached out to Disney/LFL regarding the #ObiWanKenobi composer rumors. This was the response: 'We will be announcing this soon.'"

Of course, it's no longer surprising how Disney is being overly secretive regarding every detail about the show, big or small and that's just how the House of Mouse is. The names being rumored to score the show are definitely some of the finest composers we have today and I'm pretty sure whichever Disney picked will give the show a fantastic score.

The first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi will begin streaming on May 27th, exclusively on Disney+.
