Fans are wondering when Solo: A Star Wars Story will be available on DVD and Blu-ray. It looks like we finally have an answer.
Solo may not have been a smash at the box office, but the film still garnered its fair share of fans. For those who want to know when they can watch the film as often as they please on DVD and Blu-ray, they won’t have to wait much longer
The Digital Bits – which has had a largely accurate track record in the past – claims that according to their sources, Solo will be available on Blu-ray and 4K on September 25th, with a regular DVD release soon to follow.
The Last Jedi‘s Blu-ray and DVD release was highly anticipated by many because of its game-changing deleted scenes and extensive bonus content, including the documentary The Director and the Jedi. It’ll be interesting to see if Lucasfilm tries to hype Solo in a similar manner with deleted scenes or exclusive bonus content.

Unfortunately for a number of reasons, Solo likely won’t boast these features. The Last Jedi had a smooth production process, one that allowed them to create the documentary and other behind-the-scenes content in addition to deleted scenes that could be filmed, edited, cut, and still be available on the DVD and Blu-ray in high quality. Solo‘s late change in directors, troubled production process, and rushed journey to a theatrical release didn’t offer the same time to create such content.
Some fans would definitely be interested in seeing scenes cut or changed from when Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were directors, but that’s highly unlikely to ever be shown, let alone as part of the official DVD and Blu-ray release.
Also, unlike Solo, The Last Jedi was a huge box office success, meaning there was naturally a better market for the DVD and Blu-ray release. It’s a completely different animal than The Last Jedi, and will likely have a pretty straightforward release.
There may be no bells and whistles attached, but it will still be nice to add Solo to the personal Star Wars film collection. It’s a solid film and should be part of all fans’ re-watches of a galaxy far, far away.
