Well there's a couple things. The reshoots were part of the post schedule. This occurred on TFA last year as well as there were some reshoots and pickups in 2015. John Williams was scoring TFA from May of last year over a long period of several months. This was accommodating incomplete effects obviously which has always been the case. Recorded music is very often edited in the final mix to accompany whatever is required. It's very unlikely Desplat has recorded nothing to this point or was taken by surprise by the schedule. Maybe he was but something is off. In any case Giacchino is a great choice and I look forward to the movie.

I get that reshoots are a regular part of the process.  The way these reshoots were characterized was a little different from what I've seen mentioned about pickup shoots in the past.

One thing that I think may be at play here is that there may be significant expectations of a new composer for a Star Wars film.  John Williams set the bar incredibly high, and for a long time music in a Star Wars movie has almost taken on the role of an ever-present character.  Was Desplat able to live up to those expectations?  Or was his score too much of a departure?  That could be what's really going on here.

Can someone verify the first day we'll be able to see the movie in the US? 

The release date is Friday, December 16th. 

Am I right in assuming that we'll actually be able to see this the day before on Thursday, December 15th starting at roughly 7PM?  And tickets will likely go on sale on roughly October 16th?

Thursday night at midnight going into Friday, should be when you can see it.  Though there's almost always earlier viewings if you look around as a group.  I think the locals here are trying to muster up something for Wednesday.

Old news now I'm sure, but the new SW movies have showings the night before the official release starting at 7PM.

There are special Star Wars 3D glasses for 3D shows that you get to keep.  Three versions at our theater - BB8, Death trooper, and Stormtrooper.

That's a nifty souvenir. My theater only had the Clark Kent variety.

Anybody know what the thick silver "pen like" things are that nearly all the characters have in pockets either in the front of their shirts or in pockets in the upper arms?  I thought they might be an element of rank, but I couldn't find a pattern, and it appears both the Empire and Rebellion characters have these.

Krennic seems to use them to help hold his cape in place, but characters without capes have them as well.
