John Williams back on board for Solo: A Star Wars Story

Just announced: Star Wars score creator, John Williams, will be returning to compose a theme for the upcoming anthology film, Solo: A Star Wars Story!!

John Williams, composer for all Star Wars saga films so far and creator of such famous other scores as Jurrasic Park, Superman, Schindler’s List, and many other, has just been confirmed to be returning for a special spot in Solo: A Star Wars Story, according to a recent interview by Variety.

Williams revealed his involvement in “Solo: A Star Wars Story” during in an interview with Variety about his current “Star Wars” opus, “The Last Jedi.” “The present plan is that I’m writing a theme for Han Solo, and John Powell is going to write the score, which he’ll do brilliantly,” Williams says.

Powell was announced as the primary composer for “Solo” back in July. “His assignment is something I’m very happy about,” Williams adds. “What I will do is offer this to John, and to [director] Ron Howard, and if all parties are happy with it, then I will be happy. … John [Powell] will complete the score. 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.” (Source)

I, for one, am very excited to hear this news! John Williams is one of my all-times favorite composers, and it was his world-famous scores for Star Wars that first started me in my obsession with the filmscore and “epic” music genres, but form a whole special corner of my fandom now. Although I was interested for Solo, and to see what John Powell would do with the score for it, especially since I do love the sound of his scores from the How to Train Your Dragon series (though I’ve never even seen the movies themselves), I must admit that I’ve been rather uninterested in it so far, and this announcement has majorly impacted my excitement for the upcoming anthology film. For some reason, Solo has not struck me as a necessary installment to the Star Wars film series so far (which I think is largely due to all the excitement over The Last Jedi and the final season of Star Wars Rebels) but I do sincerely hope to be proven totally wrong, and I think this announcement is the first step to making me really excited for this film.

SoloA Star Wars Story will star Alden Ehrenreich as smuggler Han Solo, Donald Glover as fellow-scoundrel Lando Calrissian, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, as well as Emilia Clarke of Game of Thrones fame in an as-of-yet unknown role. This cast will also be joined by Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Woody Harrelson (well-known by his role as Haymitch Abernathy from the Hunger Games series), and Paul Bettany (who I and many other fans know as android Vision from the Avengers franchise). Solo is written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, and directed by Ron Howard.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is set for release in May of 2018.

TEP’s “The Last Jedi” episode: We Need Your Help!!

We are getting so close to Star Wars: The Last Jedi right now, and I am so excited!! Sadly, I won’t be getting to see this newest installment until after Christmas, but that won’t stop me from ramping up the excitement for the film with The Elven Padawan! Since you probably won’t be hearing a whole lot concerning The Last Jedi from me after the release, I’d like to try something new and fun before it, and I need all your help!

Some of you may have already seen this on my Twitter feed, but for those of you who haven’t, I still want your help. I’m trying to put together a “community input” episode for The Last Jedi. You know how many news channels often go out on the streets and ask random people they see questions concerning different things, then clip all these bits together into one presentation? I’ve always loved to watch those, so I’ve decided to try it out with The Elven Padawan podcast!

Here’s how it all works, as I posted about it on Twitter:

 

Does all that make sense? In short, I’m trying to collect as many people’s input on these questions as possible, then edit them all together and release the podcast in time for the premier of The Last Jedi.

Like I said in the tweets, you don’t have to do anything fancy. Just let me know if you’re interested (you can email me at: shay@elvenpadawan.com), and I’ll send you the all the info, including the questions and instructions for how to get them back to me, and you can be part! And like I said, all you have to have is a smartphone, tablet, or computer with an audio recorder (which almost all devices have reloaded onto them when purchased), and some excitement for The Last Jedi.

As of right now I have a few people interested, but I’d like to get this out as much as possible and get as many people as I can involved. It’s a fun project that I’m really excited to see turn out, and I think it might help gather some more attention for The Elven Padawan. So if you have friends or family members who might be interested as well, pass this on to them, or get together in a group and record all your answers at once!

I know this is a bit of a short notice, as The Last Jedi releases at midnight Friday morning for most people, and many are getting in to see it even earlier than that on Thursday, and I’m hoping to get it out Thursday night at the latest. But I still think we can do this and make it awesome with your help. 🙂

So who’s up for it?? Cummon, Star Wars fans, let’s do this thing!! 😀
