Rogue One gets new composer, international posters

Check out the South Korean and Japanese designs

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - Cassian Andor with K-2SO

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is just a few months away from being released, but changes to the film are still being made.

Following the highly publicized reshoots that the film underwent this summer, Disney and Lucasfilm were forced to find a new composer for Rogue One. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Alexandre Desplat was originally on board to score the film, but because of the schedule delays that came out of the reshoots, he was no longer available when it came time to actually start scoring the movie.

Instead, Disney and Lucasfilm turned to Michael Giacchino, whom the studios have worked with before on other projects, to helm the project. Giacchino has worked on various Pixar and Disney animated films, and will make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut with Doctor Strange this November.

Disney and Lucasfilm also revealed two new official posters for the film yesterday, which can be seen below. The first, which features Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso leading a group of Rebel fighters and other important characters in the film down what appears to be a hallway in the Death Star, hails from South Korea. The second, which has received a little bit of flack from Star Wars fans online, has Jyn Erso standing in front of the official poster Lucasfilm revealed during Star Wars Celebration in July. That version marks the official poster for the film that will be used in Japan.
