The 85-year-old composer has confirmed he wants to be involved in the forthcoming film, which comes shortly after the movie music legend revealed he is working on a theme for the Han Solo 'Star Wars' spin-off.
Speaking about 'Episode IX', he told Variety: ''I would very much like to complete that.''
Williams has amassed an incredible 50 Academy Award nominations to date - more than any other living person - and his latest work on 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' and 'The Post' could see him top that number.
The composing star - who won Oscars for his scores for movies such as 1977's 'Star Wars', 'Jaws' and 'E.T.' - recently confirmed he is creating a theme for 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'.
Williams - who has created the score for all of the 'Star Wars' movies to date except one, 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' - said: ''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.
''His assignment is something I'm very happy about. What I will do is offer this to John, and to Ron Howard [director], and if all parties are happy with it, then I will be happy.''
'Solo: A Star Wars Story' will focus on the early years of Han Solo, the Millennium Falcon-owning space smuggler originally played by Harrison Ford.
