    I'm excited as well.

    You know what piece of music will probably come back?

    The Imperial goddamn March.

    I think what convinced me that Desplat could do action was Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and Godzilla. The action was simply ferocious and fun.

    I hope so.
    without a score and with all the retro-references, I was afraid they'd have to break out the old Galactic Funk LP to score it.

    Very devastated by this news.

    Giacchino is a competent composer and he did well with Jurassic World (using Williams' iconic themes), but Desplat is on a whole different level.

    There's definitely some behind-the-scenes drama going on. Disney doesn't usually replace composers three months before a movie comes out.

    Seriusly using just one of his scores as an example of his work is just disregarding Michaels' amazing work. The man is an academy award winning composer not just some slob that got the job. He has done tons of amazing scores. JW was one of his few meh scores. But let's not try to just undersell him.

    There is not really any drama going on with this aspect, MSW reports that Desplat was not thinking he could do it a few months back and Jason had heard that they were circling Michael in case he could not do it. Which seems to have been the case.

    Actually, to me it is encouraging that they were preparing months ago for this eventuality.

    Yeah according to Jason this was the back-up plan in case they could not get Desplat scheduled.

    So is Desplat.

    I'm hearing conflicting things about Desplat's former involvement with Rogue One. One of his usual orchestrators (who also works with Williams), Conrad Pope, hints that he has seen a cut of the film while other people say Desplat hadn't seen the film yet. Or that the reshoots delayed the time Desplat would usually use to spot the film, but it doesn't make sense. That composer has been known to dive into writing and recording scores in the space of 3-4 weeks -- he notably finished recording The Danish Girl days before its premiere.

    I really like Giacchino and I own a few of his scores -- the guy is talented and he's a reliable name. I just feel bad for Gareth Edwards... first the studio commissions reshoots without his involvement, and then his usual collaborator is somehow unable to score the film.

    Wasn't trailer music (the new arrangement of SW theme) by Desplat?

    The reshoots DID delay the score. That is a fact. Entertainment Weekly gave the rundown back in July. Including the fact that it was 5 weeks of reshoots ending in mid July, with editing in August and scoring in September. It was not a rumor it was a fact of the new timeline. No one is denying even LFL that the reshoots pushed the schedule further back.

    Also Desplat has worked on terrible films before (See Twilight) I don't think him leaving has anything to do with "seeing a cut". I think it's pretty clear and MSW is pretty solid, but that its having to do with the scheduling. Even the main sources of this indicated this.

    No. It were the same people who did the music for the trailers for TFA.

    Desplat scored New Moon because he had worked with Chris Weitz on The Golden Compass. He tends to be the first choice whenever the directors he's worked with ask him to work on their next project.

    I feel Desplat being replaced is a political move from Disney and Lucasfilm than scheduling conflicts. The official reasons feel rather flimsy.

    Well you can feel it. But MSW has a long standing record of actual inside information and is rarely wrong.

    I think you're looking into something that's not there and again they did not just replace him with some dolt for hire but one of the most likely to take over for John Williams .
