Composer John Powell will score the film, Lucasfilm revealed Wednesday.
Powell is largely known for his work on animated movies, including Shrek and Kung Fu Panda. He was nominated for an Oscar for 2010’s How to Train Your Dragon. His recent credits include that film’s sequels, as well as Jason Bourne and the upcoming Fox animated feature Ferdinand.
Powell will be just the third composer to score a Star Wars live-action film, after series legend John Williams and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘s Michael Giacchino.
The untitled Han Solo film stars Alden Ehrenreich as the iconic character first played by Harrison Ford. Donald Glover appears as Lando Calrissian, with Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke and Thandie Newton also among the cast.
The film is set to hit theaters May 25, 2018.
