Sold. Finally, there is a rumor that we'll see the first teaser trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story on January 7.

Han's infamous archfoe Boba Fett is rumored to make an appearance and longtime Star Wars composer John Williams most recently boarded Solo to provide its theme.

However, he'll only write the theme, not the whole score. He additionally received Oscar nominations for Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and The Force Awakens (as well as various other wins and noms for his non-Star Wars work).

Speaking of Solo: A Star Wars Story, director Ron Howard tweeted a photo of what appears to be Han's hands on the steering wheel of a speeder, as he wished everyone a happy new year.

Veteran music composer John Williams has been roped in to score the main theme for the forthcoming untitled Hans Solo film. "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", he said. The multiple Academy Award victor has written the complete scores for all eight of the main "Star Wars" movies. His themes are now playing in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but he also contributed a little something to Solo: A Star Wars Story. Michael Giacchino scored Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and James Powell is composing the score for Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Astute fans can instantly notice the fact that these don't look like the controls of Han Solo's iconic spaceship, the Millennium Falcon. Now that distinctive voice will get a bit of a boost from the guy who knows Star Wars music better than anybody.
