Disney’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was one of the biggest film releases of last year, and soon the movie will be available on disc and digital for home media viewing. The Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, and DVD will release on Tuesday, April 4, 2017, while the Digital HD copy will be available earlier on Friday, March 24, 2017.
The film will also be available in several exclusive editions from Target, Best Buy (4-disc), Walmart, and the Disney Store.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray are formatted in 1080p with a 24-bit DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 soundtrack. And, each edition includes a Digital copy to download or stream. So far, we have not heard of any plans for Star Wars films on 4k Ultra HD Blu-ray.
Bonus features are abound in this Disney release. We counted 11 featurettes with character profiles, movie concept, easter eggs and film facts, and an epilogue titled “The Story Continues.”
We’ll get you pricing once available.
