Wow, already up for pre-order. I guess this movie bombed? Ha. First Star Wars in 4K, I’ll definitely pick this up day 1.

I guess I won’t go for 3D on this one. Have the other 2 in 3D, but since not native, perhaps I can deal. Target version seems pretty attractive...

If this is like TFA, the standard package will be the best looking version.

You linked to the Target exclusive here instead of the Best Buy SteelBook.

That's pretty much standard practice these days.

Yeah, I know. But it always amuses me it’s now common practice now. And I’m just jazzed to finally see a Star Wars movie in 4K. Now if they only release a UHD of The Force Awakens and Rogue One.

The BR's look pretty damn good. It would have to be phenomenal in order for me to upgrade. TLJ though is a definite 4K although I don't need the steelbook.

Wonder if putting up a 4K UHD pre order already means they may release The Force Awakens and Rogue One in 4k that day as well?

Ordered the 3D from Zavvi, may not even bother with this one in theaters since the presentation quality of the last 2 at the local IMAX was so crappy.

I'm sure it happened when I edited and added colors to titles.

Thank U!

if your theater does Dolby Cinema, do that.

So, The Force Awakens was released in April of 2016 after the theatrical run in December 2015.

So I guess we're probably targeting April or May 2018 for this to come out? Seems reasonable. And the digital release will probably come out around March.

The Digitalbits is reporting a release of March 27. But it is not confirmed yet so take it with a grain of salt.

I'll grab the normal UHD for this. I wonder when they'll go back and re-release The Force Awakens.

Dang, I'm torn between the Target version and the Steelbook. Might have to get both.

I don’t really want the steelbook since I don’t have any of the other SW movies in those, hope somebody has a release with just a nice slipcover.

Will pick up the Target version if it's like the recent exclusive digibooks for Logan and Alien.

Tempting... but I'll wait for a 7, 8, and 9 UHD trilogy.

Still, they need to release Rogue One on UHD sooner than later.

Will NEVER watch these in 2D. Story I always tell is that Spacehunter was out the same time as Return of the Jedi, and I saw Spacehunter first because it was in 3D. Never thought I'd see a Star Wars movie in 3D, seeing that opening scroll in 3D was a joy.

Thanks for your insight but what does it have to do with the Blu-ray/4K release of the movie? It would have been better served writing this on the Movie forum.
