We may now know who will be the first person besides John Williams to score a live action Star Wars movie.
It sounds like Alexandre Desplat may be reuniting with Gareth Edwards to compose and score the music for Star Wars: Rogue One. This comes from a site called Film Music Reporter, and they’re citing a French podcast where Desplat apparently announced that he would be doing the movie.
Desplat is a very well known composer who has done stuff ranging from the last Harry Potter movies too a couple of the Academy Award nominees this year for best original score. He previously worked with Edwards on his Godzilla score, which was pretty awesome.
