SHREK Composer John Powell To Score The Untitled HAN SOLO Movie!

It’s hard to imagine a Star Wars movie without the iconic music of John Williams. However it worked with last years first Star Wars Anthology movie Rogue One. Now the questioned has remained who will score the 2nd Anthology movie…well now we have an answer.

The Star Wars Show has announced that SHREK and How To Train Your Dragon 2 composer John Powell will score the currently untitled Young Han Solo standalone film!

The film, which stars Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Thandie Newton, Ian Kenny, Spencer Wilding and Michael K. Williams, is written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan and hits theaters on May 25th, 2018.

Ron Howard recently took over directorial duties on the project; replacing the previously attached Phil Lord and Chris Miller – who were fired due to creative differences. “The movie will explore the duo [Han and Chewie]’s adventures before the events of ‘Star Wars: A New Hope’, including their early encounters with that other card-playing rogue from a galaxy far, far away, Lando Calrissian (played by Glover).”
