Have you picked up your Blu-ray/4K DVD of Star Wars: The Last Jedi yet? Thanks to Disney Studios Canada, I was given a copy to review, and this is what I learned.
Here are a few reasons why you should have this episode in your movie library.
- Carrie Fisher – may the force be with you as you walk along the planes of the Cosmic Force, General.
Due to the untimely death of Fisher in 2016, while The Last Jedi was in the tail-end of production, this became the last movie for Princess Leia Organa, one of the Rebel Alliance’s greatest leaders.
This alone should be reason enough to include this DVD in your library, but wait, I’ve got others. (Sidenote: I want those earrings, omg.)
- Technically speaking, you could easily own this movie through digital means only, but there will be that one time where access to wifi is non-existent (outage in your area, forgot to pay the bills again, droids finally took over Earth and destroyed all forms of networking,) and where will that leave you when you want to watch Luke be all Jedi Mastery? Have a physical copy in hand for when you’ll want it most. And hey, Star Wars will likely appeal to your future droid masters.
- The conflict is incredible. You’ll have a longtime Star Wars fan saying this film does not respect the lore and continuity of the whole saga. And in the very next review, you’ll have another longtime Star Wars fan saying it was the most amazing movie ever made for the Star Wars franchise. Films that inspire this much yay/nay passion are the ones that are worth your time and investment.
- DVD Extras: Director Rian Johnson takes fans on an intimate journey into the creation of Star Wars: The Last Jedi in a feature-length documentary, explaining his unique interpretation of the Force, detailing the painstaking process of creating Snoke, and deconstructing action-packed scenes from the film such as the epic space battle and the final confrontation. Johnson also reveals two exclusive scenes, featuring Andy Serkis as Snoke prior to his digital makeover, as well as 14 never-before-seen deleted scenes, in addition to his audio commentary.
- Earn Disney Movie Rewards!
So, I thought Disney Movie Rewards was an American thing, and it is, but this fun points collecting program is open to Canadians too, woot.
Here are the steps to collecting points for fun Disney collectibles! Now that Disney Studios owns Marvel and Star Wars franchises, sci-fi and comic collectors have access to some really awesome treats for movies that they already plan on owning.
First, redeem your digital code from the Blu-ray or 4K + digital combo pack that you purchased, on the Redeem Digital Movie site. Make sure the box says it comes with a digital copy!
Then choose what movie library platform you’d like to use to keep your digital copy safe.
Go through the final steps to ensure you’re copy has been redeemed.
Watch the movie right away, or close this window so that you can go back and collect those Disney Movie Reward points!
150 Movie Reward Points are yours with your Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie.
Sign in or sign up for a new account on the Disney Movie Rewards website, and make sure your points are added.
I had to make an account for the first time, so that meant clicking on the redeem link on the Redeem Digital Movie website twice. If you don’t see the points added right away, click the redeem link again to make sure they were added.
Once that’s done, take a look around at all the cool things you can get with points (and some fun things that you can download right away for free.)
Redeeming digital codes from Disney movies could land you a free FUNKO POP! And that Black Panther poster is all kinds of pretty too.
