“Everything you want from a Star Wars film.” ~ Owen Gleiberman, Variety
Lucasfilm and director J.J. Abrams’ riveting, inspiring conclusion of the seminal Skywalker saga, electrified audiences around the globe, earning more than a billion dollars worldwide.
What I’m most excited about is the feature-length, making-of documentary included in the bonus features, which goes behind the scenes with the cast and filmmakers from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and explores the legacy of the Skywalker saga.
The Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker bonus features also dig into the film’s Pasaana desert scenes, including the thrilling landspeeder chase, and the ship in which Rey discovers family secrets as well as a new little droid named D-O.
And, as you may already know, Warwick Davis reprises his role as Wicket the Ewok in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, so fans will hear from him in the bonus material, as well as the creature effects team that created a record 584 creatures and droids for the film.
If you get Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker on digital, you will receive an exclusive feature highlighting legendary composer John Williams, who has scored every episode in the Skywalker saga (since the original1977’s Star Wars: A New Hope) and returns for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
