Here’s what Powell wrote on his post: “Solo: A Star Wars Story (The Deluxe Edition)Just around the corner in 2020 to digital exclusive streaming and digital purchase: over 2 hours of original/unedited music from Solo: A Star Wars Story [as written for the film] All cues + the initial unedited version of the finish credits suite!”
This is exciting news indeed. The score for Solo: A Star Wars Story remains among the better efforts ahead from the recent batch of Star Wars flicks because of its exuberant style, luscious themes, and rip-roaring action music. John Williams wrote the primary theme for the Han Solo character, but Powell, an under-appreciated composer if there is one, is credited with the majority of the music.
Directed by , the fun-filled galactic heist celebrities Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, , Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Paul Bettany. Joonas Suotamo returns to play Chewbacca.
Written by Jonathan Kasdan & Lawrence Kasdan, Solo: A Star Wars Story is made by Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur, and Simon Emanuel. Lawrence Kasdan, Jason McGatlin, Phil Lord, and Christopher Miller are executive producers.
