Ready to sort out all your intergalactic issues with your grandparents? Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be leaving the movie theaters and hitting home video way earlier than you thought. By this time next month, you’ll be able to purchase the big Star Wars film on digital download, and by the end of March, you’ll be able to get it on Blu-ray and DVD. There’s just one catch: No deleted scenes!

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker arrives digitally in HD and 4K Ultra HD on March 17, and two weeks later, you can get your hands on a hardcopy of either 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray or on DVD on March 31. If you live in the U.K, you’ll have to wait until April 20th, but that’s not too far away either.

The new release comes with additional bonus features that will thrill a Star Wars fans, including a “feature-length, making-of documentary, which goes behind the scenes with the cast and filmmakers from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and explores the legacy of the Skywalker saga.” Other bonus features include a look at the puppetry, makeup, and prosthetics teams, how the team created the Pasaana desert scenes, but no deleted scenes or blooper reels.

That’s right, there are not deleted scenes for The Rise of Skywalker. So those hoping for a glimpse at what might have been, for now, those secrets of the Force will remain shrouded in the dark side. You can pre-order the digital version right here.
