“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” arrives in April

Walt Disney Home Entertainment just announced the upcoming release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, scheduling a Blu-Ray Combo of the eagerly awaited movie in early April.

Aside form the movie itself, the release will also contain a series of bonus features, including ”A Rogue Idea”, outlining how ILM’s John Knoll came up with the movie’s concept—and why it’s the right film to launch the Star Wars stand-alone films.

In ”Jyn: The Rebel”, get to know Rogue One’s defiant, resourceful survivor, and hear what it was like for Felicity Jones to bring her to life onscreen.

In “Cassian: The Spy” Diego Luna shares insights into his complex, driven character, who becomes a hero through selflessness, perseverance, and passion.

”K-2SO: The Droid” allows you to explore the development of this reprogrammed Imperial droid, from initial pitch and character design through Alan Tudyk’s performance.

”Baze & Chirrut: Guardians of the Whills” invites you to go deeper into the relationship between these two very different characters, with Chinese superstars Jiang Wen and Donnie Yen.

”Bodhi & Saw: The Pilot & The Revolutionary” gives Forest Whitaker and Riz Ahmed an opportunity to reflect on Saw Gerrera, the broken Rebel leader, and Bodhi Rook, the Imperial pilot who defects.

Meet a dangerous new Imperial adversary in ”The Empire”, and cross paths once more with the most iconic villain of all time.

In ”Visions of Hope: The Look of ‘Rogue One’” the filmmakers describe the challenges and thrills of developing a bold new look for the movie that can fit within the world of the original trilogy.

”The Princess & The Governor” wants you to see what it took to bring the vibrant young princess of “Star Wars: A New Hope”—as well as one of her most memorable foes—back to the screen.

In ”Epilogue: The Story Continues”, filmmakers and cast celebrate Rogue One’s premiere and look forward into the future, to the Star Wars stories yet to be told, while ”Rogue Connections” will offer up a few Easter eggs and film facts that are hidden throughout the movie that connect “Rogue One” to the Star Wars universe.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story arrives on April 4 as a Blu-Ray/DVD combo.
