The Last Jedi will be released on Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on March 27 in a number of different formats, some including digital copies of the movies (so if you want to own The Last Jedi both physically and digitally, you might want to avoid dropping the dough on a lone digital copy on March 13 and get the combo release on March 27).
The latest installment of the digital documentary series ABC News Features explores the sound design of director Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi through interviews with key members of the team at Lucasfilm and Skywalker Sound.
Chief among them is The Director and the Jedi, a feature-length documentary following writer-director Rian Johnson's creative journey through the creation of the film.
He's also got an in-depth audio commentary (no mention of anyone else contributing) as well as optional commentary on the deleted scenes.More news: Abbas, Haley spar over Israel at Security Council meeting

This bonus content gives owners a look at the movie's epic space battle, including the sounds behind the action and its visual effects.
Joining the Johnson-packed special features are chances to see Andy Serkis' raw performance capture acting on set, breakdown featurettes on several aspects of the film -Supreme Leader Snoke's role in the film, the climactic battle of Crait, and the space battle/chase sequences-and then. err, well, The Last Jedi itself, a movie you've no doubt heard of at this point. (Movies Anywhere is a video service backed by multiple Hollywood studios, including Disney, that collects customers' virtual movie collections from across four sellers: Amazon Video, Google Play, iTunes and Vudu.) It's unclear how many digital stores will offer The Last Jedi in 4K. Those with 4K Ultra HD capability may opt for a 4K UHD Collector's Edition, including 4K Ultra HD disc with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, Blu-ray disc, and a digital copy (where available). Check out the trailer above and cover art for the four different versions including Best Buy and Target exclusives below.
But the biggest draw of this Blu-ray release is probably the whopping 14 deleted scenes - a curiously big number even for a blockbuster of this size.
How many scenes you ask? Tim has checked in with his thoughts on Criterion's new The Silence of the Lambs Blu-ray and also Umbrella Entertainment's region-free Orca Blu-ray.
