Blu-Ray Release Date, Special Features Unveiled — THE LAST JEDI

Mark Hamill not dead

The home video release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi will have over 2 hours of bonus materials, a whopping 14 deleted scenes and a feature length documentary called "The Director And The Jedi".

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be available digitally on March 13, with the Blu-ray hitting shelves on March 27.

"Star Wars is a big galaxy, and you can sort of find nearly anything you want to in Star Wars". Johnson's movie split fans right down the middle, with many singing its praises as bold and wonderful, while others felt it strayed too far from the norms established by earlier installments.

Here's the trailer for the release which we assume you wouldn't be watching unless you'd seen the film.

Last night, Prince William was also recorded bemoaning the fact that his cameo from Star Wars: The Last Jedi was cut during an appearance at the BAFTAs. That means The Last Jedi will be Disney's first 4K Blu-ray title to support both of those high-fidelity technologies, according to a news release from Lucasfilm and Disney.

What special features will be included on the Blu-ray?

The Director and the Jedi - Go deep behind the scenes with writer-director Rian Johnson on an intimate and personal journey through the production of the movie-and experience what it's like to helm a global franchise and cultural phenomenon.

Meanwhile the Balance of the Force feature looks to explain "why Rian Johnson chose to interpret its role in such a unique way".

Chief among them is The Director and the Jedi, a feature-length documentary following writer-director Rian Johnson's creative journey through the creation of the film.

These accompany straight audio commentaries that go over the theatrical film as well as the copious deleted scenes. That means if you buy your movies primarily through a VOD service like iTunes, Vudu, Google Play, or the like, you'll be able to buy it at full price on March 13.

3 scene breakdowns (including Lighting the Spark: Creating the Space Battle, Snoke and Mirrors, and Showdown on Crait), and 14 deleted scenes with introduction and optional commentary by writer-director Rian Johnson (we believe 20-30 minutes worth of material in all).

The Force Awakens director is due to return to the sci-fi saga with the as yet untitled Episode 9, and he revealed he isn't fazed by the harsh critics of Rian Johnson's movie which was released in December.
