John Powell Begins Recording The Score To Solo: A Star Wars Story

About two and a half months ahead of the film’s release, work on recording Solo: A Star Wars Story‘s score has finally commenced. John Powell (Shrek, The Bourne Identity) takes the reins of the orchestra.


As the last couple of pick-up shots for Solo are being completed, work is underway to score the second standalone Star Wars spin-off film. Both director Ron Howard and Powell have shared social media posts indicating that work on writing the music has been completed and that the soundtrack is all but ready to be recorded:


*the recording is happening at the Abbey Road Studios.


As mentioned above on the Twitter post, John Williams finally created a theme for the character of Han for this movie, which Powell will orchestrate. This marks the first – and quite possibly, only – time that Williams contributed to a Star Wars soundtrack that he did not compose himself.


Recording relatively close to a deadline isn’t exactly anything new, although compared to The Last Jedi – which was scored months in advance after wrapping production fairly early on – there’s quite a gap in comparing the two productions. It’s thankfully not a very long process, so Powell should be done with time to spare. Hopefully, Solo comes out well – it definitely looks like they’ve nailed the way a Star Wars movie should look, and I think it’s likely that Powell will capture the way a Star Wars movie should sound.
