Variety has revealed that John Williams will write the theme for the Han Solo standalone movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story...
The veteran Star Wars composer said -
John Powell was announced as the composer for Solo: A Star Wars Story in the summer just as things got a little shaky for the latest Star Wars film. Mr Williams went on to state he wass "anxious to hear" John Powell's score the the rest of the film.
It's interesting that John Williams scored the eight Skywalker Saga films, but never composed a theme for the character of Han Solo. His ship got a theme, he got a love theme with Leia, but Solo himself was left wanting. I'm thrilled that the maestro himself will be making good and bestowing a character them on our favourite scruffy looking nerf herder.
