Oh, goodie. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is coming home. And with it, there comes a bevy of features. As with The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, one such feature will be a feature-length documentary chronicling the making of this train wreck of a film. For the first, time, we’ll get some firsthand accounts as to how the travesty that is The Rise of Skywalker turned out to be. Where did Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow part? Why did J.J. Abrams think bringing back the Emperor would be a good thing. So many questions!
Okay, so I’m definitely exaggerating on multiple fronts. For starters, this is a Disney movie, so I don’t expect they’ll get into the nitty-gritty of it all. Secondly, as much as I don’t care for The Rise of Skywalker, I’m not going to pretend it was the worst thing in the world. It existed, I had lots of problems with it, but I’m able to move on and enjoy the film for the good things it does deliver.
And with the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker on Digital and Blu-ray, we’ll be able to relive those moments — for better or worse — again and again. Anyway, here’s a list of the special features set to hit the home release.
The film hits Digital on March 17 and physical on March 31!
