“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” Digital Release March 24
With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’s run in theaters soon coming to an end, Disney announced that the film will soon be available as a home release. The film will first be released in Digital HD on March 24th, with the DVD, Blu-ray, and on-demand options following on April 4th.
The home releases will include a variety of special features. There’s several character featurettes, the film’s actors talking about Jyn, Cassian, K-2SO, Baze & Chirrut, and Bodhi & Saw. There are also several behind-the-scenes features that look at the creation of Rogue One, the future of the franchise, and how the film connects to the larger Star Wars universe. What doesn’t appear to be included is deleted scenes (of which there are apparently many), nor any audio commentaries.
Like The Force Awakens last year, there will be a variety of retailer-exclusive editions from Target, Best Buy, and Walmart. Best Buy will get a SteelBook package, Target will get a five-disc set with a Blu-ray 3D, and some additional bonus features, and Walmart will get a three-disc set with a pair of Galactic Connexions trading discs.
