John Williams will be contributing to the Solo soundtrack. “The present plan is that I’m writing a theme for Han Solo, and John Powell is going to write the score, which he’ll do brilliantly,” he told Variety.
Powell was announced as the movie’s primary composer in July. He’s only the second non-Williams composer to work on a live-action Star Wars film, after Rogue One’s Michael Giacchino.
The still-untitled Han Solo movie now has a composer – John Powell. His previous credits include the Bourne movies, How to Train Your Dragon, Shrek and many more. Powell follows Rogue One’s Michael Giacchino as only the second composer not named John Williams to score a live-action Star Wars film.
