Enjoy a score-only version of Star Wars: The Last Jedi on Blu-ray DVD!
The music of John Williams has moved audiences with his for well over thirty years. His musical talents have brought to life popular films and franchises such as Star Wars, Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, and many more. Williams has announced that this next Star Wars film will be his final film for which he will write the musical score. Check out the trailer for the score-only variation of Star Wars: The Last Jedi
It’s hard to imagine a Star Wars film that doesn’t bear the fingerprints of the famed composer, but we can only trust that whoever replaces him will pay homage to him with their work.
In a Score Only Featurette uploaded on YouTube by the official Star Wars channel, Rian Johnson ruminates on the magic of working with Williams on The Last Jedi. He claims that of all the Millennium Falcon – an experience most fans would kill for), the most incredible part of the experience was getting to see Williams breathe life into scenes from the film.

Regardless of how you feel about the movie, Williams’ music is undeniably breathtaking. Now, fans can experience the film with nothing but Williams and his 100-piece orchestra guiding your experience.
I think that oftentimes when we watch a film, we get so wrapped up in the action and the storyline that we almost forget about the music. Movies would be an entirely different experience without a musical score (if you don’t believe me just watch this painfully awkward video of the award ceremony at the end of A New Hope without music that I have linked here).
This score-only feature on the DVD will make you acutely aware of all that a musical score brings to the big screen. I for one cannot wait to watch it and get swept up in the glorious, moving strains of John William’s orchestra.
If you’re a fan of the film, get excited because Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on March 27th. Pick up a copy and let us know if you plan to watch the score-only version of the film in the comments below!
