On March 15, 2015, Desplat revealed he would once again be working with director Gareth Edwards, with whom he collaborated on Godzilla, by composing the score for the stand-alone Star Wars film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. However, due to scheduling conflicts, Desplat was replaced by composer Michael Giacchino during the film's post-production. Desplat and Giacchino's involvement marks the first time that the music for a live-action theatrical Star Wars film has not been composed by John Williams, who scored the first seven live-action theatrical releases beginning with Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope in 1977.
