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. And it sounds like we've already gotten the most we're ever going to see.

If you want to watch Star Wars: The Last Jedi in all its 4K glory digitally, you'll be stuck purchasing it from one of three services: FandangoNOW, Microsoft, and Vudu.

Mark's hesitance with the evolution of the character and poignant scenes with Carrie Fisher are among the highlights of the 90 minute documentary, which take us behind the scenes of the making of the latest Star Wars saga.

Apparently, like Anakin Skywalker before him, Mark Hamill is a slow learnerm and he also doubted Rian Johnson's vision just as he once doubted George Lucas'. "I was flattered. He's way more handsome than I am", the 66-year-old actor said. The new adaptation of The Last Jedi is arriving along with the movie's home drop, and it's opened up some ideas that are barely scratched at on the big screen. "That's the closest thing we'll get to a sex scene in a Star Wars movie".

Commenting on the news, Susan Kirby, St. Patrick's Festival CEO said: "The role of International Guest of Honour is something we have been considering for a few years".

The modern Star Wars movies have produced a number of popular "ships" which each have their own devoted supporters online. It's our first glimpse at what director Rian Johnson, who way overshot the mark in the length of his original version, reluctantly left on the cutting room floor. A music-only cut is a cool way to ask audiences to stretch their imaginations and a special treat as part of a growing trend of unique and special versions of films that really let directors get creative. In the case of Hamill, it was a much larger conversation about the shape of his character and where he was headed, as Hamill's expectations coming into the film differed quite a bit from Johnson's. According to Johnson, they already did, sorta. Rey's desire to learn the ways of the Jedi forces forced Luke to make a tough decision that changed their lives forever.
