The biggest release of last year is coming out of hyperspace and straight to your home’s screens. Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be available for digital download on March 13, with Blu-ray and On-Demand following on March 27.
Next month’s release will include plenty of commentary from writer-director Rian Johnson, whether it’s in a “The Director and the Jedi” featurette that takes audiences behind the scenes into Johnson’s headspace during the film’s production or in the “Balance of the Force” mythology exploration. These accompany straight audio commentaries that go over the theatrical film as well as the copious deleted scenes.
How many scenes you ask? The word at ABC (a subsidiary of Star Wars company Disney) is a whopping 14 for a running time that pushes past 20 minutes.
We’ve even got images of what the steelbook will look like — and it’s epic:
The rest of the bonus offerings on the Blu-ray include breakdowns of Snoke’s motion-capture (with sequences of Andy Serkis performing on set), the opening space battle, and the climactic showdown on the salty plains of Crait.
The Target exclusive Blu-ray and DVD include an extra bonus feature: Meet the Porgs. This explains the puffin-removal method that went into morphing Earth birds into adorable chirping aliens. By the end of the bonus features, audiences will be almost as well-versed in The Last Jedi’s creation as those who actually worked on it.
