'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Blu-Ray Date Revealed, Will Include 14 Deleted Scenes

It's funny, just as the endless bickering over Star Wars: The Last Jedi had subsided, here comes news that's guaranteed to start it back up again. Rian Johnson's polarizing (I believe it's mostly #fakenews, but whatever) film is coming home, hitting 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray on March 27th, preceded by a digital release on March 13th. That is not very far away at all.

Here is the announcement trailer released by Disney...

Yes, please! Gimme that! The special features on this are going to be crazy, led by a whopping 14 deleted scenes that you know are going to be analyzed from here to Coruscant.  There will also be the feature-length documentary The Director and the Jedi, and most intriguing of all a director's commentary with Rian Johnson. Going in-depth on his thought process as he made every controversial step should be fascinating.
