‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Out-of-Stock at Amazon

rogue-one-out-of-stock-amazonWe first noticed last night that Amazon was doing a funky thing with search results for today’s major Blu-ray release Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Instead of showing the Blu-ray product there were messages that said “Not Available” or “Not Found,” followed by listings of related products including the Amazon Video digital release of ‘Rogue One.’

We thought maybe Amazon was trying to sell more digital copies by hiding the Blu-ray edition, but as of this morning the item is labelled as “Temporarily out of stock.” Did Amazon underestimate and understock Blu-ray copies of ‘Rogue One?’ That is likely the case, unless a large shipment of the discs never reached the Amazon warehouses. Nevertheless, Star Wars fans are not able to buy the Blu-ray from Amazon today.

Amazon missed out on another opportunity. Although Best Buy, Target, Walmart, and Disney all have their own exclusive retailer editions of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Amazon seems to have bowed out of their own packaging of the title. In retrospect the online giant may have given this a second thought, because if they ran out of standard Blu-ray editions customers might have been inclined to purchase an exclusive edition instead, even if for a few extra bucks.

Amazon will likely have more copies of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story within a day or two, how could they continue to miss out on selling disc copies of last year’s second highest grossing movie? But if you can’t wait, head over to a local shop to pick up Rogue One: A Star Wars Story before their limited quantities of exclusive editions, and possibly standard editions, run out.

    I don’t believe they’ve sold any blurays. There are no reviews from verified purchasers.

    I’m very surprised Amazon has screwed up this badly. Guess I’m ordering the movie from someone else

  4. Greg Cook says:

    Well, we’re on April 10th and mine is till showing “out of stock” on Amazon..so it’s been more than a few days, we’re going on a week here…if it hasn’t shipped by tomorrow I’m canceling the order, I’m pretty upset with Amazon right now..

    I meant pre-order, not order, as Amazon offers the ability to pre-order before the release date.

    I tried ordering the first week of March and it was unavailable then. It also said to leave my e-mail so I could be alerted when it became available. I did not get an alert the whole month of March. Went to Best Buy Tuesday and picked up a copy.

  7. Jason says:

    I was extremely mad that I couldn’t preorder Rogue One. I don’t want a digital copy, I want a Blu-Ray. I’m half considering dropping Amazon Prime (not likely). I ordered a copy yesterday but since its out of stock, I now have to wait. :-(
