Love the film and can’t wait to pick it up.

trying to decide on Disney movie club or Barnes and nobles.
The target exclusive disc is tempting too....

Am going to pick this up in the Skywalker UHD set to add to my collection. Will need to add Rogue One by itself on 4K UHD. These titles will join many other titles as the last time I will be buying them. Only UHD title scheduled for repurchase is Terminator 2!

Looking forward to seeing the film again.

Thanks, Todd!

Thanks for the review, Todd. I have not seen this one yet. Hopefully the price will drop around the holidays so I can complete my saga collection - - I own episodes 1-7 on BD and episode 8 on UHD. In the meantime, I will watch it initially on Disney+ when it hits that service.

Am I correct in assuming this will not be available in 3D anywhere? Also, what is on the target disc that would make me want to get it there?

Edit: Nevermind, it is available in 3D from Amazon UK. Question for Target still stands.

This proposes a conundrum for me. 3D or Atmos? I shouldn’t have to choose, but it will be necessary.

I found a pic of the back of the 3D box. it shows DTS:HD MA 7.1. I think that will sound fine on my atmos system, so I’m sticking with 3D.

Funny thing. As I was posting here, UPS delivered my 4k version of Rise of Skywalker from Target.

I've never seen a release (that I can remember) double wrapped in plastic. In other words, the black plastic case is wrapped in plastic and housed inside a cardboard sleeve which is also wrapped in plastic. When I saw the rounded edges, I thought I maybe had mistakenly ordered a steelbook or something. But I didn't. Momentary confusion.

The artwork on the cardboard sleeve is much nicer than what's on the case artwork.

Shout Factory titles come like that quite often.

For those interested in the “Target bonus” it’s a cool and informative 25 minute behind the scenes...



...on a DVD.



So moderate your expectations. I will say my Oppo 203 to Sony 900F did a respectable job in the upscale. But yeah. DVD.

Oh wow. DVD, huh? Disney/Lucasfilm put a lot of thought into providing that little collector's item to the masses. :emoji_confounded:

Yeah, I thought the same thing with Warner's massive Big Bang Theory Complete Series set on Blu-ray, with a bonus DVD of additional interviews.

The little booklet is nice, so that kept me from feeling like I literally set fire to a five dollar bill.

But honestly, not many of these were made, and the difference of burning a dvd vs bd at this point is pennies. And you know the documentary stuff was natively shot 1080p so...#stilldisappointed

Well not including the unlikely release of the original trilogy theatricals hitting 4K Blu-ray and the addition of new Star Wars titles in the future. Now that I have all current Star Wars titles on 4K Blu-ray this is finally the last time I feel the need to purchase any of these titles! I am glad to have picked up the Skywalker Saga and the individual Rouge One all on 4K UHD Bluray! I think there is a possibility I kinda like this franchise? ;)

I like the printed photos on the pages but the discs are a total pain to get out, who in the world approved this design?

Which is one of the reasons I bought the individual discs.
