Walmart.com has listed the Skywalker Saga Blu-Ray Box set for $129.99 with 18-discs (which is one bonus disc per film) and the release date is set for April 17. I’m willing to bet that The Rise of Skywalker will likely release around that time (maybe a bit sooner to try and make people double-dip as Disney likes to do) as well as the Best Buy Skywalker Saga 4k Box Set. Now we’ll have to see if this new rumor of a second theatrical release with more footage a la Endgame comes at the end of January, but for now, we at least have a release date for the Box Set.
That’s right! After all the rumors of 4k versions of the entire saga coming for quite some time now, Disney+ shows up and says “SURPRISE!” The entire Star Wars saga (minus Solo and The Last Jedi which are licensed out currently) are available in 4k and also apparently with Dolby Atmos. I know where I’ll be for the next 24 hours, how about you? Now, we can only hold out hope that when they come to Blu-Ray we get our fabled theatrical releases as well. You can sign up for a free trial and see the first two episodes of The Mandalorian if you are still on the fence.
P.S. Despite being scheduled for a 9 am EST release, The Mandalorian is live and we’ll have reviews coming!
