An Amazon listing for a behind-the-scenes book about the making of Rogue One suggests a “worldwide” DVD release on March 28th.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story may be out on Blu Ray and DVD in less than two months (via Making Star Wars).
According to an Amazon listing for a book titled Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – The Official Mission Debrief, the “worldwide” release of the standalone Star Wars film on DVD coincides with the book’s release date, March 28th.
Below is the product description for the book.
"As Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is released on DVD worldwide, The Official Mission Debrief presents an all-encompassing guide to the hugely successful movie, with unprecedented access to the making of the film, its stars, its crew and its stunning landscapes. Relive the latest movie in the world’s biggest franchise over and over again. A must for any fan of Star Wars."
The keywords in the description are in the very first line:”As Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is released on DVD worldwide, The Official Mission Debrief presents an all-encompassing guide…” “As” implies both the book and the Rogue One DVD release on the same date. The release date Amazon listed for The Official Mission Debrief is March 28th. Hence the rumor the Rogue One DVD and Blu Ray release on this date, as well.
The Official Mission Debrief sounds similar to the Making of Star Wars series by J.W. Rinzler, which offer in-depth access to the making of the original Star Wars films, from writing to production to interviews with the cast and crew. Releasing such a guide for Rogue One on the same day as Rogue One‘s Blu Ray debut makes sense because a lot of the backstage looks the book offers will surely be among the bonus features of the Blu Ray. The book won’t “spoil” the Blu Ray’s features by releasing earlier.
