Looks Like Star Wars' Skywalker Saga is Getting a 4K Blu-ray Box Set

By Tom Pritchard on at

Now that the 'final' entry in Star Wars' Skywalker saga is in cinemas, it seems Disney has already thought ahead to the home video release of the entire series. Well most of the series, because it looks like Episodes I-IX will be getting released as a special box set - which includes all nine films in 4K.

The box set first leaked yesterday thanks to Best Buy Canada, for the price of CAD $330 (£192) and a 31st March release date, only for the listing to be quickly removed later. Like the limited edition 'Infinity Saga' box set from Marvel, this one seems to have a fancy box - specifically a giant book.

Amazon UK also has a listing for such a box set, and while details are scarce it does list it as costing £180 with 4K Blu-ray, regular Blu-ray, and bonus discs. That probably goes somewhere to explain why Best Buy said it has 27 discs. Presumably it means there are three discs per film, one of each type of Blu-ray, plus another for bonus features.

Obviously this does not include both Rogue One and Solo, the two films that aren't part of the Skywalker Saga. It also marks the first time the first seven films have been released in 4K somewhere other than Disney+. Sadly we're probably going to get the tweaked editions of the original trilogy, rather than the theatrical cuts, which means we'll have to listen to Greedo say 'Maclunkey' as he dies. [IGN]
