"Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" is coming to Blu-ray and DVD soon — but without any new chapters.
Disney and Lucasfilm announced that the blockbuster movie will be available on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on March 24, with a Blu-ray combo pack, DVD, and on demand release to follow on April 4.
The release includes featurettes on Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, K2-SO, and other characters; in-depth looks at the practical and digital effects; as well as an intriguing epilogue about to "'Star Wars' stories yet to be told."
It does not include any deleted scenes nor an audio commentary from director Gareth Edwards. The latter may come later, like Disney did with J.J. Abrams for the "Force Awakens" 3-D release. As for deleted scenes, they may also be available later ... or they may not. With all the reshoots for "Rogue One," a lot of scenes and bits were left on the cutting room floor. But who knows if they make any sense in the finalized version of the movie?
