Composer John Powell, who has scored everything from Shrek to Jason Bourne, has officially signed on to score the Han Solo movie for Disney and Lucasfilm. Known largely for his work in animation, he has also scored the likes of Kung-Fu Panda and was even nominated for an Oscar in 2010 for his work on the DreamWorks Animation film How To Train Your Dragon.
Powell is now the third composer to score a Star Wars movie, standing alongside the likes of the legendary John Williams and Michael Giacchino, who scored last year's Rogue One.
Powell's work will next be heard in the animated feature film Ferdinand.
Starring Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Warwick Davis and Thandie Newton, the untitled Han Solo film is directed by Ron Howard.
It is slated for release on May 25th, 2018.
