The Last Jedi has a secret, musical cut of the film, and you won't need any Force trickery to find it.

Last Jedi director Rian Johnson tweeted out how buyers could unlock special features on the films Blu-ray and digital downloads. The on-demand version of the film dropped on Tuesday, while the Blu-ray is due out on March 27.

Johnson wrote that viewers can unlock a music-only version of the film that features composer John Williams' Last Jedi score.

'The Last Jedi's' out today in the States for digital download, Blu in two weeks. Of all the special features, my favorite one is kinda hidden, so wanted to call it out. If you buy the movie anywhere online (or the blu) you have access to a music-only version of TLJ, he tweeted.

He added in a separate tweet, This is the full movie, but with no dialogue, fx or backgrounds just Johns score. I really wanted to put this out, its really something to see Johns music play with the movie, like a silent film.

However, Johnson said theres a hiccup that fans will have to get past.

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. Its free, it works pretty painlessly. Kinda a pain I know, but I think its worth it to get this version, he tweeted.

You can download the Movies Anywhere app on iTunes for free.

Other special features popped up online over the last week. The Star Wars Legacy Twitter account shared a sneak-peak at one video that shows actor Mark Hamill getting emotional when he saw Frank Oz working on a Yoda puppet during the films production, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Last Jedi will also include 14 deleted scenes. One of those scenes, which heavily features Captain Phasma, appeared on The Star Wars Show last week.

Last Jedi earned more than $1.3 billion since it opened back in December 2017, and received four Oscar nominations for visual effects, sound, sound editing and original score.
