Natalie Holt, the composer for Disney+’s most recent original series Loki, has indicated interest in composing for a Star Wars film. Loki was released for streaming last month and has since proven to be one of the most popular original releases on the streaming site.
With both Marvel and Star Wars properties flourishing on the platform, cross-pollination among cast and crew from both franchises has become commonplace – most notably, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and Loki writer Michael Waldron are set to collaborate on a Star Wars film in the not-too-distant future.
Natalie Holt’s compositions for Loki are her first step into composing for a big property like the MCU, but they’ve been a huge hit. Loki’s score has been hailed as one of the greatest in the MCU, with unusual instrumentation and engaging songs that perfectly depict the show’s unique universe-hopping plot.
Loki’s final two episodes will contain a 32-person choir, making it the most bombastic of the three Disney+ MCU series released so far.
Holt herself appeared excited by the possibility of directing a Star Wars film. The composer tweeted back, “Oh my…yes please!!!!!” in response to a fan’s suggestion.

Given the positive response to Holt’s Loki score, it’s safe to assume she’ll return to score future Disney films, whether or not Star Wars is in the works.
Hopefully, Lucasfilm notices Holt’s excitement and gives her a suitable project to work on. Holt, like Göransson, has a distinct musical diction that could help propel Star Wars music into new and exciting directions. Until then, fans can expect to hear the rest of her Loki music (along with the enormous 32-person choir) in the season finale of the series next week.
