Variety is reporting that John Williams will compose the theme for the film, working with composer John Powell on the film.

Based on a script by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Michael K. Williams and Woody Harrelson. Known for his work in the Star Wars franchise, Williams spoke on his involvement with the project. "He will write all the rest of the themes and all of the other material, which I'm going to be very anxious to hear". If true, then we'll move directly from The Last Jedi, into the excitement of another Star Wars film premiering in just five months.

Writing the theme for 2018's standalone film about Han Solo will be Williams' ninth Star Wars assignment.

Williams' relationship with Star Wars goes back to the first one, for which he won a Best Original Score Oscar.

"His assignment is something I'm very happy about".

Solo's music has previously been described as "in the style of the original Star Wars movies but retain Powell's distinctive voice". He even scored the Bourne action franchise, United 93 and a number of other animated films including this year's Ferdinand as well as the Happy Feet and Rio franchise.

Astute fans can instantly notice the fact that these don't look like the controls of Han Solo's iconic spaceship, the Millennium Falcon.

"Solo: A Star Wars Story" will premiere in US cinemas on May 25, 2018.
