One aspect of the Star Wars films that every fan finds memorable is the incredible scores composer John Williams comes up with for each instalment. The music is not only memorable, but many Star Wars tunes are iconic in cinematic history. Now Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson has revealed fans have access to a music-only version of the latest film with any purchase of the digital copy, which is now available, or the upcoming Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD release.
Johnson revealed the news via his Twitter page yesterday. This version of the film will be an isolated track of Williams’ score that features no dialogue, FX or backgrounds. Johnson said he’s included this version because “I really wanted to put this out, it’s really something to see John’s music play with the movie, like a silent film.”
To gain this version, however, fans who purchase the film online or the physical disc have to get the Movies Anywhere app and link the account they bought Star Wars: The Last Jedi with to the app. While Johnson acknowledged its a bit of a hassle, he also assured fans it’s well worth it to see a version just accompanied by Williams’ score.
The one hoop you have to jump through to get it: get the Movies Anywhere app and link whatever account you bought the movie with to it. It’s free, it works pretty painlessly. Kinda a pain I know, but I think it’s worth it to get this version.
