Star Wars: Rogue One will be crossing over into home video formats starting next month. Disney announced today that the spinoff tale would debut in digital form March 24, and physical disc media 11 days later on April 4, and upon this news, they released the full list of special features.
As massive as this all feels, there is one thing missing. See if you can guess what it is.
A Rogue Idea – Hear how ILM’s John Knoll came up with the movie’s concept – and why it’s the right film to launch the Star Wars stand-alone films.

Baze & Chirrut: Guardians of the Whills – Go deeper into the relationship between these two very different characters, with Chinese superstars Jiang Wen and Donnie Yen.
Bodhi & Saw: The Pilot & The Revolutionary – Forest Whitaker and Riz Ahmed reflect on Saw Gerrera, the broken Rebel leader, and Bodhi Rook, the Imperial pilot who defects.
The Empire – Meet a dangerous new Imperial adversary…and cross paths once more with the most iconic villain of all time.
Visions of Hope: The Look of “Rogue One” – The filmmakers describe the challenges and thrills of developing a bold new look for the movie that can fit within the world of the original trilogy.
The Princess & The Governor – See what it took to bring the vibrant young princess of Star Wars: A New Hope – as well as one of her most memorable foes – back to the screen.

Did you figure it out? That’s correct: there are no deleted scenes. This is especially curious because of comments made during the editing process that “there were enough deleted scenes to make up an entire extra movie.” Is Disney withholding that material for a double-dip release? Maybe, maybe not. How irritating.
Three major merchants will be selling Rogue One in special packaging. First let’s look at the Target exclusive, which gives you the option of six different characters thanks to its interchangeable front image. Frivolous, but it’s there.
Next up is the Best Buy exclusive. They’re the ones who get the Steelbook, so if you prefer those, head to the big blue box….
The last exclusive belongs to Wal-Mart and has the REAL star of this movie, the droid K-2SO, on its cover. Content is the same as the other two releases except this one has “two Galactic Connexions trading discs,” whatever that is.
Look for Star Wars: Rogue One on store shelves this April.
