Every Star Wars movie since ESB has gotten the "iris out" part wrong

    Who else has noticed this? Here's the OG one: (1:40)


    Here's the ESB one that every movie after copied: (1:55)


    It's like the first couple of notes are played way too abruptly. Thoughts? Am I the only one annoyed by the change? I thought it was especially bad in Rogue One where the end credits started way abrupt.

    Good catch. There definitely is a difference, especially with Rogue One, but it doesn't really bother me.

    I actually like the change. Then again I love everything about Empire. It's imperfectly perfect.

    Considering that John Williams conducted everything after ANH through TFA, I don't think it's wrong. He clearly wanted to tweak it from how it was in the first film and as the original artist, that's his prerogative.

    I have always had a slight problem with the transition from the Jedi Steps into the end title on TFA.

    I've always thought it was supposed to be abrupt, yet still a transition, regardless of the mood and atmosphere of the final scene. The one in "Rogue One" clearly matched the pace of the stunning reveal.

    You thought? I thought it was jarring as heck.

    If it was jarring, it was simply because "Rogue One" doesn't end with two minutes of no dialogue like the others. Also, it may have seemed jarring because we've seen the movie open differently and might not be expecting the traditional Star Wars closing credits pop up.
