Right before the calendar flipped over to 2020, we wondered if retail giant Walmart would be releasing an exclusive 4K Blu-ray edition of director J.J. Abrams’ The Rise of Skywalker to pair with the collectible exclusive editions being offered by Best Buy and Target. At the time, we did not see any concrete evidence that this would be the case. But that all changed earlier today with Lucasfilm’s official announcement detailing the home media release dates for Episode IX.
Walmart will be offering a 3-disc limited edition 4K UHD set for The Rise of Skywalker featuring tri-fold covers and artwork similar to the Best Buy exclusive 4K Steelbook.
You can pre-order the Walmart exclusive 4K release at this link. Episode IX will be arriving March 17 on digital platforms and March 31 on physical disc media (4K UHD, Blu-ray, and DVD).
