Today, Star Wars fans can pick up The Last Jedi on Digital HD, with the physical version set to release in two weeks. While the film itself has many known special features, like deleted scenes and production footage, writer-director Rian Johnson revealed a "hidden" feature: a dialogue-free, music-only version of The Last Jedi.
The special feature will allow viewers to play the film as is, but with no audio besides the music. The dialogue, SFX and background noises are all omitted, so one can listen to only John Williams' score while watching the film. According to Johnson, he "really wanted to put this out" and said that it's "really something" to see Williams' score play on its own "like a silent film."
This is the full movie, but with no dialogue, fx or backgrounds... just John’s score. I really wanted to put this out, it’s really something to see John’s music play with the movie, like a silent film.— Rian Johnson (@rianjohnson) March 13, 2018
Johnson admits that there is one catch: you'll need to link the Disney's Movies Anywhere app to watch it. However, once you have that, you'll be able to view the first music-only version of a Star Wars movie.
Available now on Digital HD and beginning March 27 on Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and On-Demand, Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Anthony Daniels, Lupita Nyong’o, Benicio Del Toro, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern, and the late Carrie Fisher.
