Rise of Skywalker Release Date, Saga Box Set Confirmed

We finally have a confirmed release date for the digital and Blu-ray editions of The Rise of Skywalker! The digital release is coming in a few short weeks on 3/17, with the physical Blu-ray coming 3/31. The official announcement was released on Star Wars social media handles.

What they didn’t announce just yet is the release of the Skywalker saga 4K boxset we reported on earlier, but have no fear. Cinelinx editor-in-chief Jordan Maison tweeted today confirming the saga’s release for 3/31 as well. 

Maison is a reliable source of SW info, so we can bet on this being accurate. So start saving now if you plan to shell out big cash for the box set – March will be here quicker than you can ignite a lightsaber. 

What comes with announcements though is not always all so glamorous. Apparently, The Rise of Skywalker home release will not be getting any deleted scenes. Here’s the list of what will be available in the home entertainment bonus features:
