Alexandre Desplat signs on for ‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets’

Hmmmm, this is interesting….a matter of days after Alexandre Desplat leaves Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the news has come out that the composer is now signed on to compose the score for Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, which is also in the space opera genre.

This upcoming film (scheduled to be released in July 2017) is based on the French comic series Valerian and Laureline, a series published from 1967 to 2010 and was also a major influence on the original Star Wars saga.

I’m still not sure why Desplat left (though I’ve read that reshoots on Rogue One had something to do with it), but I find it interesting that Desplat is moving from one space opera to another.

This film sounds really good, and I’m extremely curious to hear what kind of score Desplat creates for it.

    Wow yeah this is interesting. I wonder what he’ll do with Rogue One musically. There mustn’t be too much room for originality there because the Star Wars franchise already has so many themes. Do you feature your writing with any other websites at all?
