A “Music Only” Cut of THE LAST JEDI is Coming

A “Music Only” Cut of THE LAST JEDI is Coming

Can you imagine Star Wars without the signature music of John Williams? It’s almost completely inconceivable, because Williams’ scores so perfectly enlivened the worlds of a galaxy far, far away. Well aware of Williams’ importance to the franchise, director Rian Johnson has put together a special tribute to the composer’s contribution in the form of something unique: what he’s calling an “all music” cut of The Last Jedi.

While speaking with Prime Video at SXSW, Johnson said, “We’re going to have a music only version of the movie. Basically, we did a mix where there’s no dialogue, no sound effects…nothing but the score just playing at a perfect level. So you can watch it like a silent film just with John’s score.” This prompts a number of questions about how the movie is otherwise edited, and we are personally quite excited to find out the answers!

Johnson also revealed that the “music only” cut of the film will be available to anyone who buys The Last Jedi‘s digital release (which is out now) or the upcoming Blu-ray. The only catch is that fans will also have to sign up with Movies Anywhere, but Johnson assured viewers it is free to join the site. Hopefully, if the fan response warrants it, this could well lead to “music only” cuts for the other films in the franchise as well.

Are you excited about the opportunity to watch The Last Jedi with only Williams’ score? Let us know in the comment section below!
