Star Wars Veteran John Williams to Write a Theme for Solo

However, Powell will be getting a little help from a Star Wars veteran in the form of John Williams.

"Solo: A Star Wars Story" would not be complete without a special theme, and who better to compose it than John Williams himself. He additionally received Oscar nominations for Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and The Force Awakens (as well as various other wins and noms for his non-Star Wars work). The legendary film composer told Variety that he was writing a theme for the Han Solo-centric prequel, while Powell will be handling everything else music related.

Last summer's announcement about Powell indicated that it would be "scored in the style of the original "Star Wars" movies but retain Powell's distinctive voice".

Powell will be writing the rest of the themes for the movie, which Williams says he's excited to hear. His themes are now playing in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but he also contributed a little something to Solo: A Star Wars Story. That'd be 2016's Rogue One, which had Michael Giacchino stepping in instead.

Speaking of Powell's involvement, Williams added: "His assignment is something I'm very happy about".

Williams has composed music for all eight main Star Wars installments, with the latest film being The Last Jedi. The film will explore his younger years, revealing how he acquired the Millenium Falcon and met Chewbacca.

The anticipated origins story will star Alden Ehrenreich as the eponymous fast-shooting smuggler, alongside a cast that also includes Donald Glover as Solo's close friend Lando Calrissian.
