Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Michael Giacchino

Although it was a dream gig, composing the score for ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY presented Michael Giacchino with quite the challenge. After the ROGUE ONE reshoots shifted the post-production schedule around, original composer Alexandre Desplat was no longer available and Michael Giacchino was brought in at the last minute. With the release or ROGUE ONE quickly approaching, Michael Giacchino had just four-and-a-half weeks to pen the score. Yikes. Thankfully Giacchino was able to get it done and the folks over at Entertainment Weekly have a sneak peek at several samples of his score.

EW believes that the first sample, titled "Her Path Is Clear," is most likely a Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) theme, and that the second, "Approach to Eadu," references the "storm-drenched planet" which the Rebel spies visit at some point during the film. As for the music itself, it may be brief but I quite like what I'm hearing, definitely STAR WARS but also bringing something new along for the ride.

What do you folks think?

ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY will hit theaters on December 16th.

To be honest... John Williams was the best thing about the prequels, but his work on Force Awakens left me disappointed. Rey's theme is pretty much a rip off of Alan Mencken's beauty and the Beast prologue music combined with elements of John Williams' own score to New Hope. I already like the sound of what Michael has done here and can't wait to hear it all on Thursday

Actually, I think Williams' score for FA is great... Without the images of the film. IN the film, I was disappointed as well, but just the music, it's a masterpiece. Just my opinion of course !
Anyway, Giacchino's score in the movie (saw it this morning) is so 'Williams like' that it's hard, sometimes, to believe it's not from John Williams.

I mean this in the best way: Michael Giacchino is the best mimic doing movie music today. He's excellent at distilling the essence of an era or a style and creating something really fresh in the same vein. 60-era spy music for The Incredibles, romantic French music for Ratatouille, and that classic John Williams sound for Rogue One.
