The Rebellion is Reborn, abbreviated incorrectly 

 

Whoops, fixed. Morning coffee hasn't kicked in!

 

It's worth noting the film version of the end credits jettisons a lot of Williams' arrangements for lengthy passages of tracked music:

1:05 - 1:50: Luke's Theme fanfare

1:51 - 2:40: Rose's Theme (a new recording specific to the end credits)

2:41 - 2:56: Leia's Theme tribute (on piano)

2:57 - 5:23: The Rebellion is Reborn (tracked from the concert suite)

5:23 - 7:29: The Battle of Crait (tracked from the film cue)

7:29 - 8:15: Here They Come, Again (end credits version, not tracked music)

8:15 - 9:18: Rey's Theme coda (end credits recording of Rey's melody on flute/strings followed by the 'celeste' motif in minor on chimes)

It is a little strange but I'm guessing the credits ended up running longer than Williams allowed when they recorded it, so they had no choice but to extend some passages with other material (it's pretty faithful to what Williams did on the album, when you think about what parts they extended).

 

The same thing happened with TFA's credits; they inserted the complete Resistance March concert suite over Williams' excerpt of the theme. Maybe Williams writes and records these before the duration of the credits has been finalised, so he just approximates the length?

 

All that said, we're assuming the album version is Williams' intended credits suite. I always felt the inclusions of Yoda's Theme and Holdo's Resolve were just because Williams liked those cues but couldn't find a place for them elsewhere on the soundtrack.

:44 - 4:41 (a highlights montage from The Battle of Crait recorded for the end credits, not tracked music -- with fragments of the Resistance March, Rose's Theme, the Rebel Rebel Fanfare, Rey's A Theme, interspersed with athematic fanfares)

 

How do you know all of this was recorded for the end credits and not alternates?

5:31 - 6:25: Holdo's Resolve (the film cue with its original ending; the film version seems to have an insert ending)

 

 

I'm not 100% sure but it sounds to me that the film cue is simply edited or shortened at the end to fit the scene.  The version heard in the end credits appears to be the full, unedited version.

But the Post was composed after... it’s funny though, how that score sort of opens with almost the same motif from TLJ. Like how ‘Closing in’ from CMIYC features a very similar chord progression as ‘Across the Stars’.
