For Star Wars and Marvel fans who still prefer DVDs and Blu-Rays over digital, you might not be able to shop at Amazon for your physical media needs. Unless, of course, you’re a Prime member. That’s because the online giant has made some recent Star Wars and Marvel Cinematic Universe DVD and Blu-Ray titles to be Prime exclusives. (You’ll still be able to get them from other retailers.)

New York Post posted an article, of which part of it reads: “There is fatigue with ‘Star Wars’ and all the hype surrounding the movies,” said BMO Capital Markets toy analyst, Gerrick Johnson. Disney decided to unspool “Star Wars” films in consecutive Decembers. The first movie, 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” sparked much interest in its toy line.
