    I always thought the main title would have made a great addition to the pieces JW recently reworked for Anne-Sophie Mutter.

    Here is the mockup of the 2M1 Cockpit Dialogue, which was one of the first cues written for the film. It's believed that the cue is an early version of the Falcon Flight, and I thought so too, but judging by the sync hints in the sheets, this is not quite the case.
    I, of course, cannot be sure, but it looks like in the early cut (when there were 9 reels) there was some scene with a Poe and Finn's flight BEFORE getting the spy's message and lightspeed skipping. At the same time, Skipping itself, apparently, was cut out at that moment. Then they decided to greatly reduce this scene, but return the chase. Again, this is speculation, but I like this theory.
    Anyway, Williams moved some ideas into the Falcon Flight (same tempo, tremolo strings, Heroics theme). At the same time, 2M1 cue seems to have been recorded, since some bits can be heard in the film. In this case, it turns out that the Falcon Flight had 2 versions, and 1 insert, and they were all recorded for the first reel.
    Unfortunately, I have no idea how to fill in a lot of the missing video material, so I just inserted the hints from the sketch. Also, towards the end, some shots don't sync well (in particular, when TIEs arrive).
     

     
    Also, many thanks to @BrotherSound for breakdown the cues, and their hypothetical chronological order.

    Not Mr. Big got a reaction from crumbs in What is a guillotine drum which is used in the Star Wars. music score?   
    The last time a guillotine was used for an execution was in 1977, the year Star Wars was released.  Now I'm not going to jump to any conclusions but...

    Fantastic Beasts is great but La La Land is one of the best music/film combinations in recent years IMO

    I prefer the tracking there.  The brass chorale Hogwarts Forever is a bit too "odd" (a bit like the unused statement from Hagrid Breaks the Door)

    The Force Awakens is in what is probably the top 2 or 3 scores of its decade for me, so this was an easy one.
