As Composer Gordy Haab Games the 'Star Wars' Universe, Could He Be John Williams' Heir Apparent?

He has created more than 15 hours of music for nine Star Wars games.

When composer John Williams in February told KUSC that 2019’s Star Wars: Episode IX is the last entry in the fabled franchise he plans to score, it triggered an industry guessing game as to whom the legendary maestro would pass the baton. If quantity factors with quality, game composer Gordy Haab may have an edge. Haab has created more than 15 hours of music for nine Star Wars games. The most recent -- Electronic Arts’ Star Wars: Battlefront II -- was recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios, earning him the video game score of the year at May 23’s ASCAP Screen Music Awards.
