With the eagerly awaited The Force Awakens opening in theatres this december and the recent news that Looper director Rian Johnson will direct the next instalment in the space opera saga, Star Wars fans would be forgiven for thinking that any new announcements would be made in the near future. But alas Disney and Lucsfilm have not only revealed that Godzilla director Gareth Edwards is to direct the first of the spin off movies, written by Chris Weitz but only last week they revealed the movies title - Star Wars: Rogue One.

Today brings the announcement that Edwards will regroup with Godzilla composer Alexandre Desplat (pictured) for the movie - the award winning french musician has also scored Argo, The Kings Speech and Zero Dark Thirty.

“We (Gareth Edwards and I) will make another movie together very very soon, which is a Star Wars spin-off.”

With speculation high as to the spin off's story, it does seem almost certain that the movie will be rebel alliance heavy, with the title character of Rogue One most likely being an X-Wing pilot; possibly Wedge Antilles (formerly portrayed by Denis Lawson). It is also known that The Amazing Spider-Man 2's Felicity Jones is set to star.

More about Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (movie)

Approximately a year after the events of The Last Jedi, the remnants of the Resistance face the First Order once again - while reckoning with the past and their own inner turmoil - altogether bringing the Skywalker saga to a definitive end.

Directed by J. J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker's release date is December 20th, 2019.

I'm pretty sure the intro will be the same. It was for The Clone Wars. I just wonder how it will compare/contrast to the score composed by Williams previously. Will it still sound like Star Wars? Will it sounds like something else? I'm curious.
