It's almost here- The Last Jedi's arrival in the US market, on enough viewing formats 'to fill a space cruiser'!
More details and various exclusives artwork:
Let's hope the combined extras are better here than the all-too-short batch created for the Rogue One Blu-ray release- which only came to a miserly hour and a bit, and no sign on the horizon whatsoever of the kind of 'Special Edition' release treatment it so thoroughly deserved!

They may have openly and positively declared the spectacular London premiere of The Last Jedi their best event staging yet, and box office receipts were certainly huge, but when it comes to releasing the film in the UK on Blu-ray and DVD, Lucasfilm/Disney are either lacking in interest or certainly short-changing the territory and its dedicated buyers with its longer release date of April 9th. The kind of lavish promotion and publicity will once more be minimal, with little innovation or thought to great exclusives for fans- so far, the best we can hope for is the 'Resistance'/'First Order' style alternate covers for online purchasers, and, perhaps, the odd exclusive cover for HMV and its affiliates. A pretty poor showing...
