The Glenn Butler Podcast Hour Spectacular, Episode 51: Star Wars Scores: The Final Chapter

Star Wars Month (observed) comes to an end as Glenn and Scott finish their examination of the franchise’s scores. First, they review the new score for The Rise of Skywalker, examining the use of new themes and old, as John Williams takes his final bow as a Star Wars composer for the third time. After the ad break, discussion turns to the franchise as a whole, as Glenn & Scott rank all 11 scores and cover topics like the best end title suite and the three best tracks from each score. Glenn discusses other composers who should be candidates to score future Star Wars movies, and Scott rates each opening title crash. (TROS spoilers begin at 5:04.)
