When the much-anticipated Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi series arrives on Disney+ next month, the music for the show will partly be credited to iconic Wars composer John Williams (who returned to write a new theme for the titular hero), while the lion's share will come from Natalie Holt, a veteran of films including Paddington (where she composed additional music) and the person responsible for the memorable ticking themes of Loki.

"Obviously, I’m just thrilled to be mentioned in the same breath as John Williams," Holt tells Vanity Fair. "It’s been exciting and overwhelming at times, because I’m such a fan. I want to pay respect to the history of it, and do it justice as well." For more from Holt, head to Vanity Fair's site.

Holt, who has been making excellent music for big and small screens for a while, becomes the first woman to compose for a live-action Star Wars project.

Obi-Wan, of course, finds Ewan McGregor's Jedi Knight living in isolation a few years after the tragic events of Revenge Of The Sith. He's watching over a young Luke Skywalker on Tatooine, but faces fresh Imperial threats as the dark forces of the Empire are hunting the remaining Jedi down.

Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi will debut on Disney+ on 27 May.
