Michael Giacchino reveals that he had a cameo in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The Rise of Skywalker is the latest film in the Star Wars franchise, which also closed out the Skywalker Saga.
The Rise of Skywalker got mixed reviews from fans and critics, but grossed $1 billion at the box office and delivered another impressive score from legendary composer John Williams.
With Williams working on all of the films in the original Star Wars trilogy, as well George Lucas’ prequels, he was the clear choice to compose the sequel trilogy.
Williams composed all three films in the sequel trilogy, but the spin-offs such as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story had a bit more creative freedom when it came to the score.
Giacchino was chosen to score Rogue One, who is one of the most well-known composers in Hollywood because of films like Jurassic World and the newest Star Trek trilogy. Now, it turns out that Giacchino returned to the world of Star Wars just last year.
Giacchino Cameo as Red Storm Trooper
While wishing Happy Birthday to his frequent collaborator J.J. Abrams, Giacchino revealed that he had a cameo in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Giacchino shared a picture of him and Abrams on set for The Rise of Skywalker while wearing a Sith Trooper costume.
While Giacchino is the latest celebrity to reveal his Star Wars cameo, he is hardly the first. Dozens of celebrities have had small cameo roles in the Star Wars franchise, dating back to 1977 when Joe Johnston appeared as a Stormtrooper in the original Star Wars.
The sequel trilogy included even more celebrity cameos than previous Star Wars films, some of the most notable additions being Simon Pegg as Unkar Plutt, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Slowen-Lo, and Williams as Oma Tres.
WOW what a revelation huh? So, what do you all think about this guys?
