Scoring for Solo: A Star Wars Story is Finished as the Movie Kicks Off Its Promo Campaign

Just a few weeks after film composer John Powell announced that he had begun scoring Solo: A Star Wars Story, recording of the film’s score has come to an end. The movie’s director, Ron Howard, recently shared some words on Powell’s contribution to the film via Twitter, and a recent tweet from Powell himself has confirmed that the score is ready. Now that The Last Jedi has been released on home video, the promotional campaign for Solo is in full swing. Punch it, Chewie!


First, here’s a tweet from Howard from a few days ago as he was listening in on what he called a “strong and cool” score from Powell:


#abbeyroadstudios #soloastarwarsstory #JohnPowell is delivering us a very strong & cool score So gratifying to witness it coming to life.

Rough day at the office? Howard has found the cure:


#abbeyroadstudios #Solo last day of scoring with #JohnPowell. Memorable for all the right reasons

Here’s Powell’s tweet announcing the end of scoring. There’s definitely an abundance of stringed instruments strewn about. I wonder if we’ll get something more classical with this score or if it might have a more modern flair. If there was ever an excuse to use an electric guitar or cello (Wonder Woman theme anyone?) the Solo movie is the one. I guess we’ll find out in May which direction Powell decided to take the soundtrack:




The above tweet followed Powell’s initial post from three weeks ago:




As I mentioned earlier, now that the circle is complete on The Last Jedi, Solo has taken center stage. Here are a couple of tweets from Howard during the early press for the film:
