Re: STAR WARS: The Rise Of Skywalker

Pre-ordered the 3D Blu-ray steelbook from Zavvi yesterday. Might not even bother seeing this at a theater since there are none left that compare to where I first saw the original movie.

Re: STAR WARS: The Rise Of Skywalker

When the Target one says "exclusive bonus content", do they mean on-disc, or online/streaming?

Past Target exclusives have been on-disc, but with the way things are going nowadays we can't be sure.

But I'm definitely getting it for that cover art.

Re: STAR WARS: The Rise Of Skywalker

That Target exclusive cover is cool in that itís mimicking the poster for A New Hope. I might wind up buying the complete saga box set though. Plus I generally donít buy exclusive releases (prefer packaging to be uniform).

Most likely online/streaming/ Once upon a time Target had exclusive discs, but then switched to online content since then.

Re: STAR WARS: The Rise Of Skywalker

Still getting the Target version, isn't the stuff on the bonus discs usually pretty fluffy?

In the past, Target's bonus discs have been a DVD (already noted) with one or two extras totaling 10 to 15 minutes of footage. It's probably an extra featurette or two.

Re: STAR WARS: The Rise Of Skywalker

When it comes to these bonus discs, I don't really care that they're DVDs and not blu-rays. They're usually just a couple of behind-the-scenes things that are nice to have but don't have much replay value.

Really, unless bonus features are nicely produced features, I really don't care if they're in SD or HD.

I’m getting the Zavvi SteelBook 3D. I have all others in 3D, had to finish off. I didn’t care about SteelBook, but I have TLJ, so whatever...

Re: STAR WARS: The Rise Of Skywalker

FWIW, the Target bonus disc for Force Awakens had about 20 minutes of content ("The Scavenger & the Stormtrooper: A Conversation with Daisy Ridley and John Boyega" and "Inside the Armory", both of which were later included in the 3D collector's edtion) and The Last Jedi only had a 6 minute featurette (Meet the Porgs).

Re: STAR WARS: The Rise Of Skywalker

I'll probably get the Target version with the bonus disc.

My guess is this comes out around March. That Target version will probably be over $30.

No commentary from JJ? I had to double dip TFA to get that one, hope'd I could avoid it here.

But I'm getting the Target exclusive for that cover art.
