STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Comes Out On Blu Ray Next Week (March 27)!

Hey, everybody

A very good friend of World’s Best Media mentioned to me how he was looking for an easy way to pick up the upcoming Blu-Ray release of Star Wars Episode VIII The Last Jedi and suggested I put up one of our Amazon Affiliate links on the site. I certainly don’t want to exploit my readers and listener, but I thought this was a pretty good idea. It’s not always easy to get to Best Buy or something with everything going in people’s lives.

Let me tell you, I’m one of those suckers that buys the digital release on iTunes a few weeks earlier and I’m still going to buy this Blu-Ray. The special features are incredible are worth the price of admission alone. There’s a feature length documentary about the making of the film that’s great and one of it’s most interesting aspects is the relationship between Rian Johnson and Mark Hamill and how they had fundamentally different views about who the character of Luke Skywalker was. It’s interesting to watch that evolve throughout the making of the film.

Im going to post a full list of special features right here you can get your hands on. Pre-Orders are a good idea because they guarantee delivery on release date for pre-orders. As soon as you get home from work BAM! You got yourself some Last Jedi ready to watch!

SPECIAL FEATURES:

The Director and the Jedi – Go deep behind the scenes with writer-director Rian Johnson on an intimate and personal journey through the production of the movie—and experience what it’s like to helm a global franchise and cultural phenomenon.
Balance of the Force – Explore the mythology of the Force and why Rian Johnson chose to interpret its role in such a unique way.
Scene Breakdowns
Lighting the Spark: Creating the Space Battle – Get a close-up look at the epic space battle, from the sounds that help propel the action, through the practical and visual effects, to the characters who bring it all to life.
Snoke and Mirrors – Motion capture and Star Wars collide as the filmmakers take us through the detailed process of creating the movie’s malevolent master villain.
Showdown on Crait – Break down everything that went into creating the stunning world seen in the movie’s final confrontation, including the interplay between real-word locations and visual effects, reimagining the walkers, designing the crystal foxes, and much more.
Andy Serkis Live! (One Night Only) – Writer-director Rian Johnson presents two exclusive sequences from the movie featuring Andy Serkis’ riveting, raw on-set performance before his digital makeover into Snoke.
14 Deleted Scenes – With an introduction and optional commentary by writer-director Rian Johnson.
Audio Commentary – View the movie with in-depth feature audio commentary by writer-director Rian Johnson.

(*Having watched the digital copy me are great and should be in the movie, but I can see why they cut a few of the scenes)

Rian Johnson is writing & directing a brand new original Star War Trilogy

 

30E29F52-89EA-401B-9AF2-2A17282B5E6E

Rian Johnson, director of the highly anticipated Star Wars Episode VIII The Last Jedi is writing and directing a new Star Wars Trilogy for Disney/Lucasfilm. The movies will feature completely new, original characters and be completely separate from the Skywalker “Saga” films. The movies will take place in a different part of the Galaxy, previously unseen in Star Wars.

I knew this was coming in some form or another. Star Wars is too popular for Disney to let it lie. I think telling a completely new story with new characters is definitely the way to go. I would have hated (or at least been very skeptical) if Disney tried to do another Saga trilogy. Continuing The Skywalker family story beyond the 9 Episodes would have been a mistake. That was always the story that George Lucas began all those years ago. Adding more Episodes to the Skywalker Saga would just be a shameless cash grab that could seriously damage the Star Wars we all know and love.

I’m of two minds about this. On the one hand, I LOVE Star Wars and there will always be a part of me that wants to see stories in that Universe. BUT! One of the reasons I love Star Wars movies, one of the reasons they’re special, is that they are an EVENT. After the original trilogy there was no guarantee we’d ever get to see any more films. The Prequels, love them or hate them, where a wonderful surprise when they were announced. After Return of the Jedi, talk of continuing the movies were wishpered rumors. THEN we found out we were finally getting the fabled “last” trilogy, the story after Jedi, which was an even bigger surprise and delight. I think this was the trilogy fans always wanted to see. We’d take the prequels, but we really wanted to find out what happened to all our favorite characters after The Empire fell. So between 1977 and 2017 we’ll have seen 9 Star Wars movies (including Rogue One).

While there’s been no release date, my biggest fear is that we’ll get burned out on Star Wars. It would be awful if this incredible world was run into the ground. Going for an original, new story is great, but I’d like to see them wait at least 5-7 years, ideally a decade after Episode IX. Again, there’s no release date, but I doubt they’ll have the restraint to wait that long.

At the very least, The Last Jedi must be pretty fucking good for Lucasfilm and Kathleen Kennedy to hand Rian Johnson his own fucking trilogy. So I take small comfort in that at least.

Stay tuned to World’s Best Media as this story developes…

May The Force Be With Us…
