Alexandre Desplat was set to compose the soundtrack for Rogue One but Hollywood Reporter has learned that Michael Giacchino will replace him due to scheduling conflicts.
Giacchino is a friend of JJ Abrams and previously composed the soundtracks for his movies such as Star Trek, Super 8 but also his series LOST and Fringe. So I’m definitely looking forward to see what he will do for Star Wars!
With Rogue One, it will be the second Star Wars movie that won’t be composed by John Williams, the first being The Clone Wars movie composed by Kevin Kiner.
