THE ACOLYTE opens the first edition of STAR WARS with an R&B song

One of the things I love most about the original Star Wars films are the soundtrack written by John Williams. That music is timeless and makes those films timeless.

I had George Lucas had he decided to incorporate 70s pop culture music, the film would not have aged well. That would have been silly and would have immediately dated the films. Just look at the Star Wars Christmas Special!

Lucas and Williams set a certain standard Star Wars music we saw followed in every Star Wars project so far.

The Acolyte they did something with the franchise that had never been done before in terms of music as they incorporated an R&B song titled “The Power of Two” sung by the Grammy-winning R&B artist Victoria Monet. It was co-written by Monét, the series’ composer Michael Abel (United States of Americand No) and producer D’Mile (Judas and the Black Messiah).

The song is about the twin characters of the film Mae and Osha.

I’m not really an R&B fan, but even if it were a punk rock song, I’d still raise my eyebrows because it’s just a weird and different move for the franchise.

The Star Wars franchise is evolving into something else and while there are people who are open to the idea, many fans are not happy about it. Lucassfilm is really trying to make big changes and shake things up in the franchise.
