The Hollywood Reporter says that Alexandre Desplat will not be scoring\u00a0Rogue One: A Star Wars Story due to scheduling conflicts because of the extensive reshoots that went down over the summer. Michael\u00a0Giacchino\u00a0will instead be brought in to score\u00a0Rogue One.\u00a0While reshoots were always planned for\u00a0Rogue One\u00a0it appears the intensity upset schedule for\u00a0Desplat.\n\n\n\n \n\nTHR writes:\n\n\u00a0The reshoots also altered the scoring calendar and Desplat, who won an Oscar for\u00a0The Grand Budapest Hotel,\u00a0was no longer available. Disney and Lucasfilm then turned to Giacchino, who has a long relationship with the studio and its various divisions.\n\nGiacchino scored the music for the renovation of\u00a0Star Tours\u00a0at Disney Parks as well as many of the Bad Robot productions.\n\nFor Pixar, the maestro created the music for\u00a0Incredibles, Ratatouille, Up\u00a0(for which he won an Oscar),\u00a0Cars 2\u00a0and\u00a0Inside Out.\u00a0For its live action film division he\u2019s worked on\u00a0Sky High, John Carter\u00a0and\u00a0Tomorrowland.\u00a0For Disney Animation this year he scored its surprise hit\u00a0Zootopia. And he\u2019s making his Marvel Studios debut with\u00a0Doctor Strange, which opens Nov. 4. (With\u00a0Rogue One, he will end up working on all four of Disney's film arms.)\n\nA while ago we heard that Desplat might be out and that contracts were not signed yet so they were talking to two other composers. Giachhino was a name we heard back then. So I find this development interesting and perhaps inevitable. However, Desplat said he was doing the film and the end cards at the end of the theatrical trailer even listed Desplat as being the composer. It was strange to me how these things were not ironed out.\n\nWe lost Desplat but gained\u00a0Giacchino who has been said to be someone who could be John Williams' successor. That's pretty cool really. I am a fan of his work and I dig his\u00a0Star Trek\u00a0music in the new films too.\u00a0This will once again change the tone of\u00a0Rogue One\u00a0but in a very good way.
