Last month we saw a report from The Digital Bits that stated Disney would be releasing director Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi on 4K Ultra HD sometime in 2018, marking it as the first theatrical Star Wars film released in this new home entertainment media format. Along those same lines, TDB has since heard from various retail sources that the home media (Blu-ray, DVD, and the aforementioned 4K UHD) release date selected by Disney for Episode VIII will be Tuesday, March 27.
And file this in The Rumor Mill, but a number of our retail sources have checked in with word that the tentative street date for Disney’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD is 3/27. That sounds about right, but the date could still shift a little bit until it’s officially announced. We do know that the Blu-rays will include about 20 minutes of deleted scenes and, one would imagine, a trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story as well.
So far various pieces of information about what to expect on the Episode VIII Blu-ray release have come to light, specifically how many minutes of deleted scenes will be part of the film’s bonus content as well as some details on the footage that will comprise those deleted scenes.
As stated in the copied text above, take this as nothing more than rumor material at this point as the street date could easily be shifted to a different day.
