Just in time for next week’s Star Wars Celebration in Orlando and Galactic Nights at Walt Disney World comes the Blu-ray and DVD release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Directed by Gareth Edwards, Rogue One has become the seventh highest-grossing film of all time in the United States, garnering two Academy Award nominations.
For Star Wars fans, it’s felt like a long time since the movie left theaters. But this week, Rogue One was released On Demand and as a Blu-ray DVD Combo Pack with plenty of bonus features. Here’s a look at what you’ll get:
** 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, perseveranc,e 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.
** Baze & Chirrut: Guardians of the Whills – Go deeper into the relationship between these two very different characters, with Chinese superstars Jiang Wen and Donnie Yen.
** Bodhi & Saw: The Pilot & The Revolutionary – Forest Whitaker and Riz Ahmed reflect on Saw Gerrera, the broken Rebel leader, and Bodhi Rook, the Imperial pilot who defects.
** The Empire – Meet a dangerous new Imperial adversary…and cross paths once more with the most iconic villain of all time.
** Visions of Hope: The Look of Rogue One – The filmmakers describe the challenges and thrills of developing a bold new look for the movie that can fit within the world of the original trilogy.
** The Princess & The Governor – See what it took to bring the vibrant young princess of Star Wars: A New Hope—as well as one of her most memorable foes—back to the screen.
** Epilogue: The Story Continues – Filmmakers and cast celebrate Rogue One’s premiere and look forward into the future, to the Star Wars stories yet to be told.
** Rogue Connections – Uncover Easter eggs and film facts hidden throughout the movie that connect Rogue One to the Star Wars universe.
Perhaps most exciting is the Epilogue: The Story Continues, which gives fans a glimpse at what might coming in future projects. Disappointingly, there are no deleted scenes, even though the film was reworked at the eleventh hour so there should be a lot left on the cutting room floor.
