It’s official! Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be available for digital HD download on March 24 and Blu-Ray/DVD and On Demand on April 4….

Earlier this week we told you about a report on a leak from Best Buy that pointed to April 4, as a possible release date for the Blu-Ray/DVD versions of Disney and Lucasfilm’s 2016 smash film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Well, has just made it official, and it looks like that report was true. Here’s the announcement trailer:

There are loads of features that will make the home release of the film so much more anticipated than we had originally thought:

"A Rogue Idea – Hear how ILM’s John Knoll came up with the movie’s concept – and why it’s the right film to launch the Star Wars stand-alone films."

"Jyn: The Rebel – Get to know Rogue One’s defiant, resourceful survivor, and hear what it was like for Felicity Jones to bring her to life onscreen."

"Cassian: The Spy – Diego Luna shares insights into his complex, driven character, who becomes a hero through selflessness, perseverance and passion."

"K-2SO: The Droid – Explore the development of this reprogrammed Imperial droid, from initial pitch and character design through Alan Tudyk’s performance."

There will also be separate retailer exclusives through:

  • Target — Five-disc set with collectible packaging.
  • Best Buy — Four-disc set Steel Book.
  • Walmart — Three-disc set with K-2SO packaging.

Just head on over to to check out the different features each retailer is offering. I will tell you, out of the three, Best Buy seems to be stepping up with the Steel Book, followed closely by Target, and then Walmart. But right now, this is all just from what I can see from, and not from putting my actual eyes on the product. Stay tuned to Dork Side of the Force as we will review the copies of Rogue One on Blu-Ray to let you know which one we think is the best for your buck.
