WandaVision: “Six or seven theme songs…”
Music is important in WandaVision…
If you’ve been paying attention, you’ve noticed the different theme songs rolled out to each episode of WandaVision.
Of course, the songwriting pair behind the shows puzzle piece themes is no stranger to writing unique and iconic themes for Disney projects.
After all, Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez penned the memorable songs from The Frozen “duology” and Coco.
Talking Themes & Mysteries
“We had sort of put it out there in the universe that we wanted to do one because it would make our kids think we were cool but never imagined that we would get to because they don’t have songs in them,” explained Robert to ABC’s George Pennacchio.
“And then, lo and behold, Matt Shakman called us up and pitched this amazing, weird, unique vision of a story,” added Robert.
Shankman and Lopez met at Yale, where they worked on “The Tempest.” But when Shakman (Game of Thrones, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) was tapped to tune in WandaVision, he obviously knew exactly who should write his show’s tempestuous songs.
“‘It’s definitely going to take a little bit of time as you start to figure out what this puzzle really is, but that’s the joy of the show,” said Shakman of the show.
Part of the Puzzle
However, while the songs of Frozen and Coco often give insight into the story, Team Lopez put one musical progression in each of the songs, which works to reinforce the mystery for viewers.
Kristen Anderson Lopez said that the three-note sequence makes fans ask, “What’s up? What’s that?”
