The Last Jedi on Blu-ray & DVD

So, say what you will, and most, if not all Star Wars “fans”, have done, about The Last Jedi which is released for the home on Digital download / DVD / Blu-Ray and the relatively new 4K format. There are multiple “exclusive” version, Target in the US and a SteelBook version being the most sought out.

I have yet succumbed to watching the special features / behind the scene videos online and will wait till I can get my hands on a copy before watching them and hopefully get an insight on why some of the choices were made and left in the film and why some were left out!

Finally, not only do we get a short teaser but, a “full” teaser for Solo.

As with all trailers the images come thick and fast. There are old favourites, all be it in slightly different guise, the “falcon” sporting it haulage insert, Chewie with X-bandoliers and a much younger Lando, played by Donald Glover.

I like the look of it and when I have more info on the locations I will post. In the meantime check out the one place I do know where they filmed; in the Solo section.
