Oh my Skywalker! “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” has made millions in theaters, and now it gets its home release Tuesday. But you didn’t expect Disney to stop telling the story of “The Last Jedi” with just the movie, right? Since the first trailer’s premiere at the Star Wars Celebration in April through adaptations of the story into a novelization and comic book, Lucasfilm has been enlarging the latest tale of a galaxy far, far away.
While we reviewed the movie when it came out, we’ll still start this off with the 100 percent spoiler-free details for anyone who’s been avoiding online trailers, toys, complaints over the story or anything else that’s since hit the web during the theatrical run.

When you can watch ‘The Last Jedi’
“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” came to theaters in the US, UK and Australia on Thursday, Dec. 14. While a few theaters are still playing it, you can purchase a digital copy of the film starting Tuesday, March 13 via digital stores like iTunes, Google Play, Vudu or Amazon. You can also buy it through Disney’s Movies Anywhere service, and link those stores to your Movies Anywhere account to view on whichever device you want. That way you can watch “The Last Jedi” from your iPhone, iPad, Android device, Roku, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Amazon Fire TV or any other device that supports at least one of those digital stores.
If you want a physical copy of “The Last Jedi,” you’ll have to wait until March 27 when it becomes available on Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD. And while Disney does plan to leave Netflix to start its own streaming service in 2019, “The Last Jedi” is expected to come to Netflix at some point before the agreement ends, much like how “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is currently available on the service.
The home release is stacked with special features, including “The Director and the Jedi” documentary on director Rian Johnson’s journey through the film’s production, deleted scenes and audio commentary.
Get your pause button ready if you need a bathroom break. “The Last Jedi” is the longest Star Wars film so far, with a runtime of 2 hours, 30 minutes.
Who’s in it?
Nearly everyone in 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” returns in one way or another. That includes legacy actors Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker and the late Carrie Fisher in her final portrayal of Leia Organa. (No, Harrison Ford’s Han Solo isn’t back.)
As far as new faces, we’ll get to that below the giant spoiler warning.

Benicio del Toro joins the Star Wars universe as DJ, a shady codebreaker. It’s still vague (even after watching the film) exactly what DJ is up to, but in the hands of an actor with a resume like del Toro’s, the character could expand in future films.
