Posted by Ben Huber on Apr 19, 2015 in Star Wars


Gareth Edwards took to the stage at Star Wars Celebration to talk a little bit about the upcoming Star Wars spinoff film, Rogue One. Kathleen Kennedy also announced that any spinoff film will fall until the branding of “Anthology” (which you can see underneath the logo above). They haven’t started filming yet, but did show off a short clip made for the convention that featured the Death Star floating menacingly over the horizon of a forest planet. Yes, this film will be about rebels stealing the plans to the Death Star, as previously rumored. And, as was already confirmed, Felicity Jones will play the lead, a rebel soldier in the mission. Edwards said he’s excited about making this movie because “it comes down to a group of individuals who don’t have magical powers that have to somehow bring hope to the galaxy.” Read more…

Rogue One

In what may sound like sacrilege, one of the upcoming Star Wars movies will be the first Star Wars movie to not be scored by John Williams. Gareth Edwards’s Rogue One will instead be scored by Alexandre Desplat, which may not be as familiar a name to some of you. But the score is left in capable hands, as Desplat is fresh off winning an Oscar for The Grand Budapest Hotel‘s soundtrack. Desplat recently worked with Edwards on Godzilla, and his past work is impressive: The Imitation Game, Moonrise Kingdom, Argo, The King’s Speech, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and Zero Dark Thirty, to name just a few. Since Rogue One is a spin-off and not part of the new trilogy, maybe this will help the movie stand out even further. Read more…
