Michael Giacchino Replaces Alexandre Desplat as Composer for 'Rogue One'

By: Dominic Jones

There has been a big change behind the scenes on Rogue One: A Star Wars StoryThe Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Michael Giacchino (Star Trek, Jurassic World) is replacing Alaexandre Desplat as composer on the Gareth Edwards directed film.  This apparently is a result of the highly publicized reshoots, which altered the schedule so that Desplat would be unable to score the film in time. 

According to THR,
"the reshoots also altered the scoring calendar and Desplat, who won an Oscar for The Grand Budapest Hotel, was no longer available. Disney and Lucasfilm then turned to Giacchino, who has a long relationship with the studio and its various divisions."

Giacchino has worked with both Disney and Lucasfilm before.  Giacchino having composed the score for the Star Tours II: The Adventures Continue.  He also played a stormtrooper in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  His other credits include Inside Out, Cloverfield, and The Incredibles.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on December 16th.
