May the 4th be with you, now cue the main title! The legacy of Star Wars‘ highly successful movie theme song lasts longer than its 5-minute-24-second runtime, but its not the only film franchise with a magical score.
Out of the top 10 highest-grossing series, the Marvel Cinematic Universe reigns overall, but can the same be said for its soundtracks? Disney Live Action Reimaginings has invested a lot of star power to dust off their nostalgic tunes and draft new tracks, from tapping Ariana Grande and John Legend to cover Celine Dion‘s 1991 “Beauty and the Beast” theme song for the 2017 remake to Beyoncé curating The Lion King: The Gift with her husband Jay-Z, co-star Childish Gambino, Tiwa Savage, Tierra Whack and more for the 2019 live-action edition.
Similarly, the James Bond franchise recently recruited Billie Eilish and her hitmaking partner and brother Finneas to produce “No Time to Die” titled after the 25th film, which has postponed its release date due to the coronavirus pandemic. She joined the elite ranks of three-time theme singer Shirley Bassey, Louis Armstrong, Paul McCartney, Tina Turner, Adele, Sam Smith and more trained to take on the same special assignment since the 1962 release of the series’ first film, Dr. No.
