Disney’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a visual feast, but not everyone pays close attention to how the soundtrack enhances each scene throughout the movie. Famed music composer John Williams has been a part of the Star Wars franchise every since the beginning, and has said will continue though the release of Star Wars: Episode IX. One might wonder what it would be like to sit in Williams’ chair, watching early cuts of ‘Star Wars’ films and setting the musical score that generations ahead will experience.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi just released to digital last week, and with the early release Disney’s Movies Anywhere is offering a “Score-Only” version of the film that will feature the soundtrack but no dialogue. Movies Anywhere says the version is being offered for a limited time only, but we’ve heard the Blu-ray and 4k Blu-ray editions of the film will also contain digital redemption codes that will unlock the exclusive feature.
Keep in mind you can’t buy movies directly from Movies Anywhere. Instead, the service points interested parties to Amazon Video, Apple iTunes, FandangoNow, Google Play, and Vudu. However, if you have a digital redemption code it can be redeemed at Movies Anywhere which will then pass that code to a partnering service. Confusing enough? It’s not as bad as you think. Just be sure to create a new MA account if you haven’t already and link the service you purchase from. You can even still get five free movies for opening an account.
The only caveat is that the “Score-Only” version of ‘The Last Jedi’ must be watched through the Movies Anywhere app or website, which is available for iOS and Android mobile devices, Apple TV/Airplay, Chromecast, Roku, Shield TV, or MoviesAnywhere.com on web browsers. As of now, the Disney platform is not available on Blu-ray players, Smart TVs, or gaming consoles.
