Han Solo Movie Composer REVEALED, New Star Wars: The Last Jedi Books, and SDCC!


We’ve got news about the untitled Han Solo
movie that will be music to your ears. Oh I see what you did there. Oh yeah. This week, on The Star Wars Show! Andi talks future Star Wars books with Del
Rey’s Elizabeth Schaefer! Matt Lieb checks out all the Star Wars at
San Diego Comic Con! And much, much more. Now from the Lucasfilm Headquarters it’s
The Star Wars Show! Hi I’m Anthony Carboni
And I’m Andi Gutierrez, welcome the The Star Wars Show the only Star Wars Show where
one of the co-hosts is wearing the same outfit she wore last week. Because we care about pre-taped interview
wardrobe continuity! Yeah! Let’s go to the news
While the movie may not have an official title yet, the upcoming Han Solo movie has found
its composer. John Powell, the Academy Award nominated composer
best know for the Bourne series, Shrek, as well as the Kung Fu Panda and How to Train
Your Dragon will be scoring the untitled Han Solo movie. Powell now joins Michael Giacchino and John
Williams as the third person ever to score a Star Wars live action film. But only the first person to score a
Star Wars and a Kung Fu Panda film. Take that John Williams! Noob. You can listen to his score for yourself when
the untitled Young Han Solo movie directed by Ron Howard hits theaters on May 25, 2018. Last weekend during San Diego Comic Con a
ton of new Star Wars books were revealed during the Lucasfilm Publishing Panel, including
more titles in the journey to Star Wars The Last Jedi series of books. Highlights include Jason Fry’s adaptation
of The Last Jedi, another installment of Pablo Hidaldo’s visual dictionary, Phil Szostack’s
Art of The Last Jedi book, and a Thrawn adaptation from Marvel because dreams come true! All the Thrawn! Also announced was Elizabeth Wein’s, Star
Wars: The Last Jedi: Cobalt Squadron, a book detailing the “harrowing story of the courageous
bomber pilots and technicians of Cobalt Squadron” from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Starring Rose, because she’s the best. But most importantly… we announced Chewie
and the Porgs…an adorable children’s book about Chewbaccas misadventures with the pesky
porgs of Ahch-To island. I love the porgs! Ah Porgs. They’re like a little owl but there also
a little puffin And they’re kind of penguin-y and they got
little funky teeth I bet they just hop around and when they look
up at you I bet you melt. Just melt. Finally this week, as we literally just talked
about San Diego Comic Con was last weekend, and there was a whole lot more than just Star
Wars books at the show. That’s why we sent our good friend Matt
Lieb to check out all the Star Wars on the show floor. Enjoy
I wonder when we’ll see the first Porg cosplay. Hopefully today. Hopefully I’ll just walk out and they’ll
be a Porg waiting for me. I hope that everyday. Hey everyone, Matt Lieb here at Comic Con
in San Diego checking out all things Star Wars because Star Wars is the name of the
game, and the show, let’s check it out. Here we have C’ai Threnalli, you may know him as the winner of the Ello Asty look a like contest. It’s Poe Dameron! Thanks for giving Finn your jacket that was
super rad of you. Keep it, it suits you. Just for sake of argument, how much weight
does that hold? Up to 130lbs. What if you had a 220lb baby? Probably not. But it would test the limits for sure. These look a lot bigger in the movies. Oooh check these. Oh shhhhh, gosh, damnit Adam Driver! This is our K2-SO life size figure. Because he is so top heavy we had to actually
cast parts of him in metal in order to get him to stand stabally. Ahhh! High five! Oh low five. That Ewok is cute but he will also crush your
head between two logs. It looks like right here that you are going
to reveal a special helmet for us? This is the Poe Dameron replica graphic. So this helmet will be available right around
the release of The Last Jedi. Can I try it on? Definitley. Now I’m ready to fight or ride my 10 speed. Whoa!! This is Hero Droid BB-8 from Spinmaster. He’s about 2/3 scale, full function RC and
all these features. I love you. Help me Emmy nominated Star Wars Show, you’re
my only hope. We’ve got some new releases we just announced
at New York Comic Con. The facial features on Rex and Rey are using
a new technique where we take images of Daisy and Temuera Morrison and we can map them directly
onto the sculpted toy head. I’m overwhelmed! I am here over at Pop Minded by Hallmark! You need a downed AT-AT tape dispenser right? Who doesn’t? That’s so amazing. Wow, hey hey. May I have one for free? You know, it was said that working for the
internet would never lead to anything but guess what. Free poster. You are watching The Star Wars Show. I think he’s heading for that small moon. That’s no moon. This week, Elizabeth Schaefer was kind enough
to join us. Thank you for joining us Elizabeth. So you are the senior editor at Del Rey books
That’s right Tell me a little bit about what that entails. I get this question basically every Christmas
from my extended family. What is an editor? What exactly do you do? So basically the best metaphor is probably
like a director of a movie is sort of like an editor of a book. Basically every piece of the book I get to
touch base with. And you work on all the Star Wars books that
Del Rey has done Yeah. And you’ve only been there for a little
while but you came from Disney? That’s right. I did Star Wars at Disney. Star Wars has been such a huge part of my
career so I am so happy to do that now at Del Rey. What’s it like working at a company that
has been so integral to keeping this saga alive? It’s an honor. It’s scary at times. I remember right when I started woring at
Del Rey my first month is when we started working on Thrawn. First month working at Del Rey and you’re
working with Timothy Zahn on a Thrawn novel. No pressure! None at all. Were you like an avid Star Wars book fan before? Totally. I have to admit that I was really into the
young adult series like Jedi Apprentice. That is such a huge part of my Star Wars book
love. You’ve got a lot of really cool stuff in
the works. Thrawn just came out and it’s killin’
it. You’ve got Phasma coming up in September. But I wanted to talk a little bit about Inferno
Squad. What was it like working with EA to make those
two mesh together? They’re wonderful. ANd it’s been great to have brain storming
calls for us working with video game people. Ways that stuff in the book might influence
the game and they’re just recording some of the audio stuff now so as a gamer, knowing
that I’m going to be able to play Batttlefront II and see some of the characters from Christie Golden’s book show up? Inferno Squad. Oh man. If you like sad things happening to your characters,
you’re really selling it! I mean, very exciting action packed but also
heartbreaking. There’s a time where Christie sent me an
email saying, “Oh I thought of this great idea for this thing that will happen in the book
and it’s just really gut wrenching and beautiful.” ANd I would just send back a picture of the
Emperor going like, “Good” Those are things that form really strong memories
in fan’s minds. I think a lot of times our fans get connected
to the saga through books on a deeper level than they do the movies. What would you say is your biggest goal? The place you want them to hold in our community. My goal is for us to tell the best stories
we can that represents the most number of people that makes Star Wars feel as rich and
alive as as anything else that you encounter with storytelling wise. I think you’re doing a great job. I’ve enjoyed everyone of the books I’ve
read so thank you so much for coming by. Can’t wait to see what’s coming out later
this year! Me too. Phasma. Phasma. I’m here with the Emmy
Emmy Emmy
Emmy Emmy
Emmy Nominated Emmy Nominated
Emmy Nominated Emmy Nominated web series here. Emmy nomination. Nominated for an Emmy we’re sorry
We were nominated for an Emmy I just like to point that out a lot. Hey can we talk about the Porgs some more? What do you want to know? Just about everything ANDI. Thank you for asking! What do they sound like, how much do they
weigh? Are they soft, do they have nightvision… I don’t know these things why don’t you
ask Pablo? Oh it’s weird. My key card stopped working on Pablo’s floor. There’s probably a reason for that. However, since we know you guys love the Porgs
as much as we do, we want to hear your Porg poetry. ASend us your best Porg rhymes using the hashtag
#PorgPoem and we’ll feature our favorites here next week. Finally, because we’re an internet show
and you pretty much have to do this at the end of every video otherwise it’s not a
real internet video…make sure to like the video, subscribe to the channel, follow us
on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, and as always May the force be with you! Shall I compare thee to a summer’s porg? That’s good. That’s a good start. We want to hear your Porg poetry! Send us your b—buh—baby! Please don’t send us babies Send us your
baby! Give me your first born and I will give you
a Porg- don’t. I’m working on my haiku right now, 5, 7,
5. Porg is one so it’s easy. Porg Porg Porg Porg Porg
Porg Porg Porg Porg Porg Porg Porg Porg Porg Porg Porg Porg.

  1. Okay… the porgs. Undeniably cute, yes, but I worry they're going to become the "minions" of the Star Wars universe and will be marketed as such.

  2. John Powell? YES!!! That guy is soooo underrated. One of his greatest and most epic scores was for X-Men 3. A theme driven composer is what we need for a Star Wars movie. Am more than happy.

  3. I went to a committee
    I took the intercity
    The train arrived late cuz' their schedule is sh*tty
    That was a pity
    I then got some churros and paid two fitty
    I got back to my apartment and was greeted by my kitty
    His name is Hank and he is quite bitty
    The star wars trailer dropped and i got giddy
    I love porgs
    Porg is my city.

  4. I'd like to see an Obi-Wan & Ahsoka movie, set after ROTS. It'd introduce the casual Star Wars fan to Ahsoka, and open the door to an Ahsoka stand alone film.

  5. p. porgs are my life
    o. oml its a porg puts in bag
    r. real small
    g.going to get me a porg as soon as the toys come out

  6. A Porg with a sword on the shore,
    Was bored, which you cannot ignore.
    For although they’re adored,
    A Porg with a sword
    Will gore you, then escort you, to the morgue.
    #PorgPoem

  7. #PORGPOEM
    A long time ago on an island far far away,
    Luke had arrived and later so did Rey.

    While training She saw cute creatures scurry by,
    I call them Porgs He said, I'm not really sure why.

    There were too many here to name them all,
    But when I came these were the first ones I saw.

    He smiled at two Porgs sitting by his side,
    They looked up opening their big eyes wide.

    Guess what I decided their names should be?
    The best two names I know, Anthony & Andi !

  8. Am I the only one who thinks the Porg looks like a Furby?
    They're cute right now but if you put that in a horror-like setting, that would scare me

  9. #PORGPOEM (short version)
    A long time ago on an island far far away,
    Luke arrived and later so did Rey.
    While training She saw cute creatures scurry by,
    I call them Porgs He said, I'm not really sure why.
    But these two Porgs seemed more clever to me,
    So I named them Anthony and Andi !

  10. Any particular reason why you played the pizza song from cartoon planet in the background of the video?

  11. I think that the Han Solo movie will be the most original attempt to a Star Wars movie then any other Star Wars movie. With a unique score and Ron Harward as the director, something new and different will come out from the Han Solo movie

  12. I can't believe that the composer for how to train your Dragon is composing Star Wars! How to train your Dragon has one of the best movie scores ever!

  13. I wish Giacchino had a chance to score again. He did really well on Rogue One – an entire score composed in 4 weeks.

  14. Hey Star Wars, what ever happened to the Top Ten Series? Bring it back!!! Start off with the ten best musical compositions in Star Wars (in the movies and in The Clone Wars/Star Wars Rebels)

  15. The porgs are as bad as Jar Jar. Why? It wasn't even necessary, why do it? Star Wars is so love and hate.

  16. Here's some fun ideas:
    1. Get rid of these 2 morons hosting this show
    2. Cancel forces of destiny
    3. Make Star Wars better in general
    4. Bring back clone wars

  17. I'd much rather have a movie showcasing the Old Republic, Mandalorian Wars, Sith Empire, etc. then a Han Solo movie

  18. Han Solo is the 1977, 30-ish year old Harrison Ford, not this other new guy. This is why I will not go to see the film in theaters. Disney needs to focus on the future of the Star Wars universe, rather than attempting to put new faces on established characters….Mark my word, Disney will fail in the Han Solo…solo film, no matter which high esteemed directors or over the top budgets hey throw at the projects. The Han Solo film WILL fail in the box office…Disney just doesn't get it. They will make money no matter what, so why mutilate the Han Solo character by slapping a new face on the character? This isn't the DC or Marvel universe, where the characters are fixed in time and require new faces every generation to continue presenting them. Star Wars characters are not static, they die off (Han Solo is dead!!!), so the story needs to move forward in time, and then the past ought to be left alone. Rogue one worked only because the main characters were new faces. However, Rogue One was still a little cheesy (Darth Vader sounded much much older and the CGI'ed Tarkin and Leia were still fakish)….I am ditching this soap box. I'm done!

  19. han solo will be the first star wars movie i dont see in theaters, or at all, havent decided. I really dont want to have characters i love ruined by pointless backstory, aka the prequels.

  20. It's annoying how these people feel they can describe Rose as "the best" when no one has even seen the movie yet. You're just making assumptions based on what you've heard. Same thing with the way you describe the porgs

  21. I hope the Han Solo movie will show us how he did the corsal run in less then twelve parsec! At the end Han will say to Chewie, Hey lets get a drink! and then they´ll sit inside Chalmuns cantina in Mos Eisley!
    What do you think of that?

  22. we dont need more the last jedi nonesense books, no one cares about any of the new cast.. or the first order, or the resistance.. least of all rey…

  23. God, your not appreciating whom truly shot first. Why no movie for greedo? Who cares about thrawn or porgs WE NEED MORE GREEDO

  24. #PorgPoem We're in Disneyland and me and my friend the Porg are waiting to ride Hyperspace mountain, but first he must get a drink at the water fountain. We fastpasses go to in line, but I left my bag right behind. The Porg got on first and I got on last, now lets go to space and go really fast! This is my poem of me and the Porg p.s. I'm getting a Porg at Disneyland.

  25. So true! Star Wars books have changed my life. They are the only thing I read now and the only thing I will ever read. And I LOVE to read.

  26. I wish they would be more concerned with hiring a decent writer / director team. Who cares about the music, when the rest of the movie is in the crapper
