The Last Jedi on Blu-ray & DVD

the-last-jedi-posters-banner_096ae625-lakis-test_f10feb0a

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!

Will viewing for the fourth time at home make a difference……..we will see…..
