Walt Disney Records released the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story soundtrack, which features score by Oscar and Grammy award-winning composer Michael Giacchino. The original motion picture soundtrack is available on streaming services and wherever music is sold. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens in U.S. theaters today, December 16, 2016. Composer Michael Giacchino marks his first-ever feature collaboration with Lucasfilm for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Recorded at Sony Scoring Stage, the score features a 110-piece orchestra and 80-person choir conducted by Tim Simonec.

"It has been a great honor to have been asked to score 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' and I am humbled to have had the opportunity to contribute to the musical universe that inspired me so as a kid," said Giacchino.

"Back in 1977, long before I knew I was going to be a film composer, I spent countless hours listening to the original 'Star Wars' double LP on my small RCA Stereo in my bedroom.

In a sense, John Williams was my very first music teacher. All these years later, John continues to be an inspiration."

From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, an all-new epic adventure.

In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire's ultimate weapon of destruction.

This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is directed by Gareth Edwards and stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, with Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker.

Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur and Simon Emanuel are producing, with John Knoll and Jason McGatlin serving as executive producers. The story is by John Knoll and Gary Whitta, and the screenplay is by Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy.
