Solo: A Star Wars Story buying guide: Blu-ray, DVD, Digital


You will soon be able to bring Solo: A Star Wars Story home to watch as many times as you wish. Here’s when, where, and how to buy your copy this month.

Even though Solo: A Star Wars Story underperformed at the box office this summer, some fans are still looking forward to getting to watch it again as many times as they want.

More people might be giving it a chance now that they can see it for themselves on their own time.

The movie finally releases this week — and we’re definitely going to be re-watching it ASAP. Here’s when and where you can get a copy for yourself.

Buying Solo on digital

Want to enjoy Solo from any device, anywhere you are? Not every platform allows you to buy or rent with bonus features included. But if you want to enjoy the movie earlier than its Blu-Ray and DVD release, digital might be the way to go.

More from Solo: A Star Wars Story

You can get your digital copy of Solo starting Friday, September 14. It’s available in HD from Amazon, YouTube Premium, Fandango Now, iTunes, and Google Play for $19.99.

Buying Solo on Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand

Need to have a physical copy of the movies you love enough to purchase? You can also wait a little longer to get the film on Blu-ray and DVD.

Solo: A Star Wars Story will be available for Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand purchase on Tuesday, September 25. You can preorder it now online from Amazon and other retailers, or pick up your copy in-store at locations such as Target and Walmart.

Bonus features

Solo‘s home release — like thousands of films before it — offers an enriched experience that goes beyond what you got to see in theaters.

Its Blu-ray and DVD versions — as well as digital copies bought from Amazon Prime Video — include never-before-seen content, including:

  • Multiple deleted scenes
  • A roundtable discussion with the movie’s director and cast
  • A brief history of The Millennium Falcon
  • Behind-the-scenes looks at key scenes and characters that appear throughout the film.

When will Solo be available on Netflix?

Disney is removing all of its associated content from Netflix in preparation for the release of its own on-demand streaming service in 2019.

Therefore, it’s unclear when regions such as the US, UK, and Canada will be able to stream the movie on Netflix — if at all.

But if it does come to Netflix in the US, we might be able to expect it sometime in January 2019, if we follow the same release schedules as previous Star Wars movies compared to their theatrical releases.
