Solo: A Star Wars Story Headed To Blu-Ray In September With Eight Deleted/Extended Scenes

The Solo: A Star Wars Story Blu-ray will be available to take home this September, and it'll feature eight never-before-seen deleted and extended scenes.

Han’s solo flight is coming home to Blu-ray and DVD in September.

Disney and Lucasfilm have today announced a September 25th launch date for Solo: A Star Wars Story‘s home video release, when budding fans will be able to purchase either the Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD version, or the regular old Blu-ray.

DVD copies will also be available for you purists out there, though if you’re wanting to skip ahead of the queue, you’ll be pleased to hear that Solo has set a course for a digital debut on September 14th, when the Anthology flick will also go live via Disney’s Movies Anywhere service.

As for bonus content, Star Wars enthusiasts can look forward to eight deleted/extended scenes, including “Proxima’s Den,” “Corellian Foot Chase,” “Han Solo: Imperial Cadet,” “The Battle of Mimban: Extended,” “Han Versus Chewie: Extended,” “Snowball Fight!,” “Meet Dryden: Extended,” “Coaxium Double-Cross.”

Here’s the official list of special features, courtesy of Lucasfilm:

Solo: The Director & Cast Roundtable – Sit down with director Ron Howard and the stars for an intimate and entertaining discussion of the film’s making.

Team Chewie – See what it takes to bring your favorite Wookiee to life in this lighthearted look behind the scenes.

Kasdan on Kasdan – Iconic Star Wars screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan and son Jonathan share what it was like to write the movie’s script together.

“Kasdan on Kasdan” should be of particular interest to long-time Star Wars fans, as it involves Solo‘s two screenwriters – namely Lawrence Kasdan and son Jonathan – detailing their approach to the galaxy’s most famous scoundrel.

The movie’s special features continue below:

Remaking the Millennium Falcon – Track the transformation of the most famous ship in the galaxy, from Lando’s swank and impeccable pride and joy to Han’s stripped-down hot-rod freighter with “special modifications.”

Escape from Corellia – Get behind the wheel for the making of this high-octane chase through the streets of Corellia.

The Train Heist – Explore the challenges and thrills of creating this action-packed sequence, including its remote location and spectacular effects.

Becoming a Droid: L3-37 – Meet the newest droid—and the talented actor who helps bring her to life.

And, finally, there’s also the promise of a thorough breakdown for the Millennium Falcon and its most daring route – the Kessel Run, which Han claims he can do in only 12 parsecs.

Scoundrels, Droids, Creatures and Cards: Welcome to Fort Ypso – Take an in-depth tour of the rough-and-tumble bar where strangers mix and gamblers risk all in the legendary card game, Sabaac.

Into the Maelstrom: The Kessel Run – Join Han and Chewie at the controls of the Millennium Falcon to see how this legendary moment in Star Wars history unfolds.

The Millenium Falcon: From Page to Park – An exclusive look at the history of the most famous ship in the galaxy, its origin and development, and how it will translate in one of the most anticipated expansions in Disneyland’s history.

Solo: A Star Wars Story has officially been cleared for take-off. Its ETA? September 14th, followed by a Blu-ray release two weeks later.
