Rogue One arrives on Digital HD on March 24 and Blu-ray/DVD on April 4. Get details including special retailer exclusives from Target, Best Buy, and Walmart!
Hot on the heels of the news that the Han Solo Star Wars prequel is officially in production, Lucasfilm/Disney have announced that Rogue One will be available for us to bring home very soon!
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first of the Star Wars standalone films, has established its place within the Star Wars universe and the hearts of fans.
In this epic adventure (set before Star Wars: A New Hope), at a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
Rogue One is directed by Gareth Edwards and stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, with Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker.
The movie smashed the box office last December, becoming the seventh highest-grossing film of all time in the U.S. and is nominated for two Academy Awards.
Now fans can own the epic action-adventure thriller early on Digital HD/Disney Movies Anywhere on March 24, and on Blu-ray Combo Pack/DVD/On-Demand on April 4!
Even better, we’ll have access to never-before-seen Rogue One bonus content, including behind-the-scenes interviews with movie’s diverse, dynamic cast and inspired team of filmmakers.
