    One of the examples how Giacchino could fit right into war movie.

    While I would have loved to hear Desplat's take on Star Wars, I have always felt that Giacchino was going to be the successor to Williams. I'm a big fan of Gia, although lately his works have started to tail off for me. I still hold his Medal of Honor scores as some of my most listened to. I wonder if Peter Bernstein was ever up for consideration...I was just re-listening to his Ewoks scores and I really enjoy them!

    I have to agree, something smells. This isn't just another gig.. this is STAR WARS. You MAKE room in your schedule for Star Wars.. not the other way around. So if this is true then good riddance; I don't want a mercenary scoring this movie.

    BvS's main problem is not the so much the darkness but the sheer lack of fun watching it. This remark is coming from a BvS fan too, btw. That might have been what happened with R1. I don't know what the problem was for sure but I'm fairly certain this film has a CA:WS feel to it now.
    "It will never go away.. It can't be undone."

    My take on the new composer is that it's a good call. A little on the safe side but a good call nonetheless. Arts in essence can be cute, but I seem to recall a lot of bellyaching about TFA's soundtrack, with the biggest complaint that it was not bombastic enough. Well, one edge-of-your-seat bombastic Star Wars soundtrack coming right up.
    All in all, I like his work.

    Agreed. I'm more than happy to have Giacchino score the film, but I'm with you: it does seem like whatever Rogue One was originally, it's been more and more scaled back to "safe Star Wars" territory. And if that is true, I think that's a shame.

    It was probably more of a grim-dark hardcore war movie at first, then they watered it down - more humor and tonal tradition to the main episodes and that type of stuff. It doesn't mean that it can't still be great in its new form, but this was always a test to see how experimental they'd be allowed to make a non-episodic Star Wars movie under Disney.

    I'm wondering if/how-much Desplat's saying he had no intention of using any of William's original themes played into this decision. I think the official reason is scheduling conflict, but we all know that may not be the whole story.

    Desplat is a gifted composer, but given what I just mentioned above - and Giacchino's previous work - I like this news. Personally I LOVE his Star Trek score. It seemed the perfect match to new look and feel of the STCU. I actually like the movie Tomorrowland, and his score is a big part of that. Giacchino is a better fit for SW IMO. And I think it would be smart for Williams and Giacchino to work together on Eps 8 and 9. Would serve as a good "passing the baton" phase.

    I think he'll do good in SW, we'll see!
