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.

There was nothing about any of the upcoming spin-of films at Celebration, but we did get this “behind the scenes” look at the Han Solo film with Warwick Dave and directors Christopher Miller and Phil Lord, who revealed a new alien.
Meanwhile, Kathleen Kennedy clarified the faux-issue about Han’s name for MTV’s Josh Horowitz. “It’s obviously his name,” she said. “It will always be his name.” She also hopes to announce the third spinoff film “this summer.”
And finally, here’s a rumor that

Celebration 2017 is only months away, and StarWars.com our first look at the badge art. We also learn who’s hosting the three major stages, and it’s returnees Warwick Davis, David Collins and our pal Amy Ratcliffe, who made her debut on the Behind-The-Scenes Stage at Celebration Europe.
Meanwhile, per an email sent out to attendees, 4-day passes to the con are almost sold out. Celebration 2017, the con’s third outing to Orlando, takes place April 13 to 16.
We got a pair of new posters this week; The first for
IMAX, the second for Dolby. Both are more adventurous than the standard one-sheet, but there’s still plenty of that shiny digital smoothness that’s de rigueur these days. A late addition: New character posters from Japan, on a Spanish website because why not.
Rogue One’s first tie-in novel, Catalyst, came out this week and there are interviews with author James Luceno over at StarWars.com (by our own James) and The Verge (by Andrew Liptak.) You can also check out reviews at Big Shiny Robot and Tosche Station. And finally, if you just want the summary/spoilers/infodump, there’s io9. (Or Chris Taylor at Mashable.)
