Tracklist for Michael Giacchino’s ‘Rogue One’ Score Revealed

The tracklist for the soundtrack to the upcoming Star Wars spin-off has hit the web. The score was composed by Michael Giacchino after he was added last minute to the project upon the exit of composer Alexandre Desplat due to scheduling conflicts. Giacchino, a long time Star Wars fan, will be the first ever composer to score a Star Wars film other than John Williams.

The soundtrack released for Episode I: The Phantom Menace is notorious for revealing the death of Qui-Gon Jinn via the track title “Qui-Gon’s Noble End”, but don’t worry, the tracklist is descriptive, however. It does not contain any spoilers.

What’s remarkable about the tracklist is the final track titled “Guardians of the Whills”. For those who don’t know, George Lucas had originally written a journal that referenced the Jedi known as The Journal of the Whills. The Journal featured the first ever mention of Jedi Master Mace Windu. It was officially brought into canon in the novelization of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

The novel opened with a verse from the journal containing a poem about the light and dark sides of the force:

First comes the day
Then comes the night.
After the darkness
Shines through the light.
The difference, they say,
Is only made right
By the resolving of gray
Through refined Jedi sight.
―Journal of the Whills, 7:477
