It’s been quite a year for Natalie Holt. On the heels of writing the thunderous and spectacular music for Loki, she stuck around Disney+ to join one of the few franchises that may actually be more popular than the Marvel Cinematic Universe as composer of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Awards Radar had the chance to speak with Holt about her interest in the character of Loki and what track(s) she likes best from the soundtrack:
“I’m really fond of the TVA and the Loki theme. I remember when I came up with the TVA theme and I was just really thrilled. It felt like big enough, these big chords, it felt right for the story. And then recording it, putting all the orchestra on it, I was really happy with that one.”
She also had the chance to meet John Williams because of her work on Obi-Wan Kenobi:
“I’m just like, oh my god, did the last year just happen? It’s really crazy and brilliant. I’m thrilled with how it’s turned out and how it’s been received. And the chance to get to work with my idol, hero, John Williams, who basically, I’m a composer because of him. He was at the Star Wars celebration, and my agents said, oh, they wanted to keep it a surprise, but I think I should tell you because you’ll be a bit overwhelmed. I said, phew, I’m glad. I think I would have just cried if just there he was. It was nice to prepare myself a bit. I kept my cool when I met him.”
