Bring home the Force this Spring
Disney’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is wrapping up its box-office run, and will release on Blu-Ray and Digital HD this spring. The film, which has now grossed over $1B at the global box-office, will be available to stream in just a few short weeks.
Disney will release “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” with a wide-array of bonus features and digital extras, some of which are highlighted in the promotional video below. The Star Wars spin-off will release on Digital HD on March 24, and will ship on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD, and On-Demand services on April 4, 2017.
You can pre-order the digital version on sites like Amazon.com if you want the quickest release time, or you can wait a little longer and pre-order the Blu-Ray or DVD option. Disney also released a trailer for home box-office release of the film, which you can watch below, or on the official Star Wars YouTube channel.
Disney’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” was directed by Gareth Edwards, working off a screenplay written by Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy. The film stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna and Alan Tudyk.
Disney confirmed the Digital-HD and Blu-ray release date just one-day after the studio released the first cast photo of the new Han Solo spin-off. Disney hasn’t released the title for that installment yet, but fans did seem to be excited to see the cast at the helm of the Millennium Falcon on social-media. Disney has confirmed the title for the next major installment to the franchise, “Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi,” and according to international posters, the title is referring to more than one Jedi.
“Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi” will be directed by Rian Johnson, who also wrote the screenplay for the project. Returning to the series are Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, the late Carrie Fisher and her daughter Billie Lourd, Gwendoline Christie and Oscar Isaac. Joining the franchise this time around are Benicio Del Toro and Laura Dern. That film will hit theaters on December 15, 2017.
