Score Guide – Star Wars The Phantom Menace (1999)

Join Wend and smuggler co-pilot Will Dodson in orbit of that lovable dustbowl Tatooine live from onboard the spick-and-span cockpit of our old faithful, SSR-15 Corellian Class Cruiser, for the first of three special Score Guides!

In celebration of the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story movie, we are taking a look back at the prequel trilogy starting today with Star Wars Episode I – The Phantom Menace, composed and conducted by film composer John Williams, and performed by the world’s most recorded orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra along with the equally important London Voices.

With the help of their Rebel Alliance*, your hosts gush over memorable melodies, magnificent motifs, and revel in all the awe-inspiring orchestration and choral work, while at the same time, having the most fun two podcasters could ever have!

Go strap yourselves in, get comfortable and enjoy our latest Star Wars Score Guide!
