‘How To Train Your Dragon’ Composer To Score ‘Han Solo’ Spinoff

Lucasfilm has officially announced composer John Powell will be scoring the upcoming Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story.

Powell has previously scored films such as The Bourne Identity and Kung Fu Panda, as well as How to Train Your Dragon. Powell joins Michael Giacchino and the legendary John Williams as the third composer to ever score a Star Wars film. The composer is said to be providing a symphonic score that will match the style of previous films in the franchise, however, the score will retain Powell’s unique voice.

Plot details for the second Star Wars spinoff remain under wraps but the film is set to chronicle the young Han Solo from years of 18-24 in his life and will include meeting Chewbacca and the smuggler acquiring the Millennium Falcon.

Ron Howard is directing The Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story from a script written by Lawrence Kasdan and son Jon Kasdan. The film stars Alden Ehrenreich as the young Han Solo along with Joonas Suotomo as Chewbacca and Donald Glover as the young Lando Calrissian. The cast also includes Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Michael K. Williams, and Ian Kenny.

The Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story is currently slated for release on May 25, 2018.
