With the film in theaters for less than a week, Target and Best Buy are already touting preorders for their exclusive 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray editions of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker due sometime in 2020.
With a light slate of new releases on Dec. 24, the retail chains the day before Christmas otherwise offered deep discounts on catalog titles.
Target’s exclusive 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray edition is available for a $34.99 preorder and comes with a 4K disc, a regular Blu-ray disc, a digital code for the film, a filmmaker gallery book and exclusive bonus content. The box art features artwork inspired by one of the classic posters for the original 1977 “Star Wars” movie.
Best Buy is offering a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray combo pack with Steelbook packaging for $34.99.
Best Buy is also selling an exclusive nine-film “Skywalker Saga” 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray boxed set for $249.99. This marks the first 4K disc releases for the first six films of the franchise.
An all-region version of the “Skywalker Saga” set is also available for preorder through the Amazon U.K. site. The listing indicates a 27-disc set, which would account for a 4K, regular Blu-ray and bonus disc for each film.
