Star Wars: The Last Jedi 4K Blu-ray release date: series’ first UHD disc confirmed

Were you a big fan of Star Wars: The Last Jedi? Then you're in luck, as the movie is getting a 4K Blu-ray release, with director Rian Johnson's latest epic from the galaxy far, far away the first film in the series to get the pixel-pushing UHD treatment.

Revealed in a trailer-packed tweet from the Star Wars Twitter account, Disney has revealed that the Star Wars: The Last Jedi 4K Blu-ray release date has been set for March 27. That's the same date as the regular Blu-ray release, while those looking for a digital download of the movie will be able to get it a little earlier, on March 13, via the Movies Anywhere service.

Despite enjoying critical acclaim, The Last Jedi has been perhaps the most divisive of all the Star Wars films among fans, who were at least united in their hatred of the prequel trilogy. Johnson's movie split fans right down the middle, with many singing its praises as bold and wonderful, while others felt it strayed too far from the norms established by earlier installments.

Whichever side of the fence you fall on though, the home video release looks to serve you well, with a host of features (including a movie-length documentary in which the director explains all his controversial choices), alongside a whopping 14 deleted scenes.
