Disney details the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Digital & Blu-Ray releases

It looks as if it's time to start planning your next Star Wars Movie Marathon, because Disney has unleashed the details of the digital, DVD, and Blu-Ray releases for ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY! That's right folks, so grab your novelty light sabers, your comfiest Chewbacca onesie, and prepare yourselves for when the digital version of the film releases on March 24, 2017. Or, if the sound of a DVD and Blu-Ray (or 3D Blu-Ray) combination package suits you, you'll be able to travel at light speed to your nearest online or brick and mortar retailer on April 4, 2017 to get your hands on that version.

According to the official press release, here is a list of the features you can expect to see included when the movie hits home: 

  • A Rogue Idea – Hear how ILM’s John Knoll came up with the movie’s concept – and why it’s the right film to launch the Star Wars stand-alone films.
  • Jyn: The Rebel – Get to know Rogue One’s defiant, resourceful survivor, and hear what it was like for Felicity Jones to bring her to life onscreen.
  • Cassian: The Spy – Diego Luna shares insights into his complex, driven character, who becomes a hero through selflessness, perseverance and passion.
  • K-2SO: The Droid – Explore the development of this reprogrammed Imperial droid, from initial pitch and character design through Alan Tudyk’s performance.
  • Baze & Chirrut: Guardians of the Whills – Go deeper into the relationship between these two very different characters, with Chinese superstars Jiang Wen and Donnie Yen.
  • Bodhi & Saw: The Pilot & The Revolutionary – Forest Whitaker and Riz Ahmed reflect on Saw Gerrera, the broken Rebel leader, and Bodhi Rook, the Imperial pilot who defects.
  • The Empire – Meet a dangerous new Imperial adversary…and cross paths once more with the most iconic villain of all time.
  • Visions of Hope: The Look of “Rogue One” – The filmmakers describe the challenges and thrills of developing a bold new look for the movie that can fit within the world of the original trilogy.
  • The Princess & The Governor – See what it took to bring the vibrant young princess of “Star Wars: A New Hope” – as well as one of her most memorable foes­ – back to the screen.
  • Epilogue: The Story Continues – Filmmakers and cast celebrate Rogue One’s premiere and look forward into the future, to the Star Wars stories yet to be told.
  • Rogue Connections – Uncover Easter eggs and film facts hidden throughout the movie that connect “Rogue One” to the Star Warsuniverse.

That's quite the list! It sure would have been interesting if there was a feature detailing the trials and tribulations the film had encountered during its production, but I can understand why Disney wouldn't want to put that foot forward. Regardless, there's sure to be plenty of content to satisfy even the most hardcore of Star Wars fans when ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY officially becomes a part of the ever-expanding space saga's home collection.

May the force be with you, and remember, the digital version of the film releases on March 24, 2017, while the 3D Blu-Ray, DVD and Blu-Ray releases will be unleashed on April 4, 2017

Extra Tidbit: You should have seen my face once characters started dying in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. I was so enthralled by the film that I completely forgot what it was about. Ha ha ha! I was like, "What? No way! How could they ... oh, wait ... yeah. Duh."
