Jensen Ackles and Danneel Harris at New York Comic Con

New York Comedian Con is the place goals come true, like letting me discuss to Jensen Ackles and Danneel Ackles in regards to the music of Supernatural and the way it carries into The Winchesters. The prequel collection set within the Supernatural universe is hitting the CW quickly and with it comes the story of John Winchester (Drake Rodger) and Mary Campbell (Meg Donnelly) previous to them being the dad and mom of Sam and Dean. Set within the early 70s, the collection is about…effectively, saving folks and looking issues however it additionally brings an interesting new aspect to the franchise.

Music. Or at the very least the place Dean’s love of the music his father shared with him began at. Many of the music that took over the world of the long-running collection was primarily based within the later half of the 70s and ran the entire method to the 90s (which isn’t saying a lot for the reason that collection began in 2005). However music was such an necessary a part of the story that it wouldn’t really feel proper if we didn’t discover the place John’s love for what’s now deemed “traditional” rock got here from.

So I requested the place music would play a component within the collection realizing that it’s costly so as to add large songs into the fold and in addition as a result of the collection is ready previous to lots of the songs we all know and love from the unique collection. “It is determined by the scores as a result of we’d like lots of people to look at this present,” Danneel Ackles joked, adopted by Jensen Ackles responding “So we will get a music price range, trigger the music price range is tight.”

The 2 joked quite a bit about their planning for the collection and Jensen Ackles did discuss a playlist that Danneel Ackles created previous to manufacturing. “After we began out and we first began this journey with Robbie (Thompson) and the 2 of us, she despatched out one in all, in all probability, the primary emails concerning this venture and it was a playlist she made,” he went on to say. “And it was all of that form of music however the tough factor was that we had been making an attempt to be time genuine. There was quite a bit that occurred after ’73, there was a lot of excellent music.”

Danneel Ackles went on to speak in regards to the distinction in music as effectively. “As a result of 1972 nonetheless has quite a lot of carry over from the final 60s” (which Jensen Ackles additionally famous the carry over from the 50s) “so there’s quite a lot of like The Supremes and quite a lot of R-n-B.”

Jensen Ackles went on to speak a bit extra in regards to the music as effectively. “So it’s going to skew a bit older however look, quite a lot of nice music got here out within the late 60s and we could be asking for forgiveness on just a few songs if it’s like ‘oh that was ’75’ effectively…”

The leg work that Supernatural did

One other journalist subsequent to me requested a follow-up in regards to the music, asking whether or not or not they obtained any pushback from bands who didn’t need their music included and Jensen Ackles mentioned no and credited that to the success that Supernatural had. “I believe that Supernatural did quite a lot of leg work, so far as that goes, since you discuss Kansas, for example, these guys are like ‘Supernatural wants us?’ and people guys are like Superman and simply present up. We simply put out the Bat sign for Kansas.”

Danneel Ackles then requested us all if we had been recording this and after we mentioned sure, she then requested a favor: “So there’s this band referred to as Greta Van Fleet and I’m obsessive about them and Jensen’s obsessive about them and we actually need them to come back on and do a track on the present.”

The 2 joked about realizing they’re trendy however they sound time interval applicable and so Greta Van Fleet, if you happen to’re listening, the Winchesters want you. The collection premieres tonight on The CW and it’s a good entrance into a brand new Supernatural story that offers us a take a look at Mary and John Winchester previous to their days with Sam and Dean and it’s going to be a enjoyable experience. With some nice tunes.
