Having kept us regularly updated throughout the film’s production (well, its reshoots), director Ron Howard has now taken to social media to announce that recording is underway on the score for Solo: A Star Wars Story at the iconic Abbey Road Studios in London.
John Powell (How to Train Your Dragon) has composed the score for the Anthology movie and is serving as conductor for the recording, while Star Wars legend John Williams has also contributed by putting together a theme for Alden Ehrenreich’s young smuggler.
