The Game of Nerds had the fortune of talking with composer Kevin Kiner about working on the music for the animated shows, and for those of you who are dying to get any new information pertaining to the remaining episodes of Star Wars Rebels, Kiner had this to say about scoring the final season.
“I’m about to start writing the last two episodes which is actually a movie of the week. They’ll be put together as one, the last two episodes. It’s funny actually the last two minutes are missing from the very end, the copy I have so I still don’t know how it ends! Dave [Filoni] has to show me some time because I gotta write music for it so it’s driving me crazy.”
Kiner also mentioned getting positive feedback from actor Freddie Prinze, Jr., the voice of Kanan Jarrus, regarding the score in “Flight of the Defender.”
“Another one Freddie really loved was when Sabine was learning to use the Darksaber (“Trials of the Darksaber”), the climax of that one he really loved. Freddie is an amazing human being. Here’s been here to my studio and you know he starred in my first big studio film that I scored called Wing Commander. We go back that far. He’s super grounded and so exciting to be around because he’s always bubbling with fun ideas and just a true creator.”
