"I just want to write Benny a theme."
―John Williams[3]

Obi-Wan Kenobi's theme was composed by Star Wars maestro John Williams for the 2022 Obi-Wan Kenobi television series.[1] It premiered on May 26 of that year at Celebration Anaheim, conducted by Williams himself.[2]

Williams had expressed his interest to Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy in writing a theme for the character Obi-Wan Kenobi, since while Kenobi first appeared in the 1977 original trilogy film Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, and while Williams' film score does feature a leitmotif for Kenobi, that leitmotif ultimately became "The Force Theme."

The rest of Obi-Wan Kenobi's soundtrack was scored by Natalie Holt, whose music was inspired by her initial attempt to write a theme for Kenobi as well as Williams' theme for Kenobi.[3]
