    Woah, I'm digging this new Leia's Theme. The intro is kind of fascinating. The violin seems thoughtfully bare and strained and not just a violin-centric version of the traditional Leia's Theme concert arrangement.

    Opening with Rey's Theme is a nice choice. A very energetic rendition.

    It's not JW music. I hope any member of this forum could listen to this "leak" and immediately arrive at the same conclusion.

    The score is quite good. I like the love theme, the patriotic main theme, the orchestrations (they have a period vibe), and the haunted theme. The score is far better than the film.

    Do folks like the main theme for this film? I feel like it is almost comically bad and one of the worst in JW's career. It just sounds like an imitation of the Godfather theme but as translated thru JW's musical sensibilities.

    artguy360 got a reaction from Will in Rose’s Theme   
    There's no chance in hell Rose's Theme began as a new theme for Leia. Rose's Theme is ok. Simple, optimistic, childlike, and lacking any interesting development. I LOVE The Rebellion is Reborn and I think it is the best way to show off 2 separate themes that don't have enough to stand on their own. Thematically it is a hot mess, but musically, I love it.

    artguy360 got a reaction from bollemanneke in THE LAST JEDI - Score as heard in the movie thread - SPOILERS ALLOWED   
    I completely agree. Johnson really let's the music shine. And for the most part it really does and for the most part the highlights are on the OST. However, there was a lot of non-thematic noisy brass that didn't really work for me. And the mix being loud made that music pop quite a bit. Other than that, I love love love how closely the music is scored to the film. 
     
    I suspected this would be the case just listening to the OST but JW really did score every twist and turn in each scene for emphasis, mood changes, etc. Those moments work brilliantly in the film and now I will appreciate the music on the OST even more. And, unsurprisingly, every moment that quotes a previous theme is spot on in the film. The use of Leia's Theme, Han and Leia, and especially Luke and Leia almost made me well up with emotion. JW knows exactly how to lead into and out of those old themes with great ease and effectiveness.
     
    This score is something special and Johnson really does treat it with respect.

    In the cases where we know what music was used for temp, I feel like the most interesting results have come from when non-JW music was used to temp the film instead of using JW SW music to temp a JW-scored SW film. ROTS comes to mind.

    The emphasis on the subtle way past themes are integrated is important. I think it will be more like Anakin's theme in ROTS rather than DotF in ROTS.
