Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is the third and final movie of the sequel trilogy made in the Disney era that started with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Meant to cap off nine movies overall in the Skywalker Saga and tie them all together, it features Rey, Finn and Poe together on an adventure to stop Kylo Ren and the First Order once and for all. Desperate for allies and low on resources, they gain crucial intel that could help them with their mission.

Along the way, we see Rey discover the secrets of her origin, Kylo Ren's destiny come full circle and Poe and Finn become the leaders the Resistance needs them to be. General Leia Organa is seen as well, providing inspiration and wisdom in this most crucial of fights. We also see some returns of characters we haven't seen in a while and the rise of the most malevolent and deadly force the galaxy has ever seen, with the power to kill trillions.

Filled with pew-pew action, high stakes, spectacular special effects, plot twists, unexpected surprises, great humor, heartwarming moments, lightsaber duels, unexpected deaths and the light and dark sides of The Force in a winner-take-all showdown, this movie has it all.

Directed by J.J. Abrams, who also co-wrote and directed "The Force Awakens" and written by J.J. Abrams and Chris Terrio, it opened in theaters on Dec. 20th, 2019 and over the course of its theatrical run, earned over 515 million dollars domestically and over 558 million internationally. In total, it earned over 1.074 billion dollars, making it the sixth highest-grossing movie of 2019. Critics gave it a 52% rating on RottenTomatoes.com, while audiences gave it an 86% score.

This movie drops on DVD, Blu-Ray and 4K Ultra HD on Tuesday, March 31st. There are five retailer exclusives for this movie as well, so let's find out the details.

Best Prices:

I did a price comparison on both the internet and this week's circulars with Amazon.com, Best Buy, BestBuy.com, BarnesandNoble.com, Costco.com (no listings for some reason), DeepDiscount.com, Frys.com, FYE, FYE.com, Kmart.com/Sears.com, Overstock.com, Target, Target.com and Walmart.com. Unless otherwise noted or known by me, the prices are the same in-store and online at their respective websites. I noted shipping in the price rankings because of the competition between stores, but I will only be comparing base prices of the movie. Shipping costs will not factor into the price rankings as a result.

Please note that with these price rankings, these prices are as current as I am aware of. Walmart's in-store prices don't always match its website prices, for example. As a result, these prices are as accurate as I can verify from the internet and flyers from the newspaper, I don't put prices in the rankings that I cannot verify.

I fully expect there to be further price changes on Tuesday when the movie is released to stores. This is especially true with Amazon's prices, which are NOT available online yet. I'll be updating this thread again on Tuesday and double-checking all the prices.

On a side note, this is why Amazon's prices aren't online yet and why they don't do pre-orders for a Disney owned movie: https://consumerist.com/2014/08/1...-blu-rays/

For example, in the past, Kmart.com/Sears.com will presumably sell all versions of a movie, but there are no listings for it online but only in Kmart's circular. So, I can only rank the price at the store and not the price on the website. I also know from experience that FYE's B&M store prices are the same as those on their website, so I made one listing for both. In other words, these stores reserve the right to change their prices and I might not know about it. Smilie That's where the SD community can help each other out and if new or different prices are verified, I will edit my post accordingly.

When I checked online, I found no listings for this movie on Costco.com, Kmart (no sales circular), Sears (no sales circular) or Walmart (no sales circular).

A note about Walmart's prices, they have proven to be notoriously regional in the past and they rarely have a weekly circular available online. When it is available online, the circular prices in it are national or mostly national. Hopefully, the prices online will be national, with little price variation. Wink

I'm making a slight adjustment to my price rankings, as I will now only include the top five prices in this thread. Basically, if a retailer's price stinks, it doesn't get to be a part of this compilation list. Big Grin I will still do a full price comparison to all the stores I listed above, but only the best prices will be included here. So if you don't see a particular store on the list, it means their price wasn't good enough to be included. It also means that if their price isn't included here, you should go to a retailer whose price WAS included on this list and try to get the other retailer to price match it, if possible.

Here are the conclusions:

__________________________________________________________________________

Don't forget that you can price match any edition of this DVD or Blu-Ray to the store of your choice, if they have a price matching policy. There might also be some store-specific coupons or online coupon codes floating around that could help bring some of these prices down further. Given the price competition for this movie, there are some great price-matching opportunities, especially due to the aggressive price matching policies stores like Best Buy, Target and Walmart continue to utilize.

You can certainly purchase this movie digitally at the online retailer of your choice. However, when you buy the Blu-Ray or the 4K editions of this movie, it comes with a digital code, so you don't have to do so unless that is your preference. nod

__________________________________________________________________________

I included as much pertinent information on this new release that I could find so everyone can make a more educated decision on whether to purchase this movie or not, as well as which edition they prefer. Also, if you were in the store and didn't know which edition to get, you could pull up this thread on your smartphone and use it to figure it out right there on the spot. (Of course, given the current threat of COVID-19, you probably wouldn't be in the store to begin with.)

For those of you who read these threads start to finish, there is plenty of detail for everyone. I've noticed that a lot of the questions people put in these threads could be answered if they read the OP carefully. I would heartily encourage you to do so, as it might answer the question(s) you have before you even have to ask. Wink

And that is the end of this compilation, my first New Release Thread for the year 2020. There are five retailer exclusives for physical media this time around. It should make it easier to decide what edition and which exclusive you might want.

Remember, when making the final movie in a nine-movie saga, make sure to include plenty of Easter eggs referencing previous movies, lots of fan service and give all of the legacy characters from the original trilogy meaningful parts in the movie.

For more information on my previous New Release Threads for blockbuster DVD, Blu-Ray & 4K releases, please click here: hhttps://slickdeals.net/forums/sdsearch.php?mode=forum&searchuserid=410841&showposts=0&starteronly=1.

RELEASE DAY - INFORMATION & PRICES UPDATED ON MARCH 31 @ 7:28 AM:

1.) Both Best Buy/BestBuy.com & Target/Target.com now have listings for the DVD edition of this movie and their price moved to the top of the rankings, with the best price.

2.) Walmart/Walmart.com's price for the DVD increased to $28.25, making it the worst price available and moved to third place in the price rankings.

3.) As of this writing, Walmart/Walmart.com have the Blu-Ray and the 4K Ultra HD editions of this movie still in pre-order status on the website for some reason. While I fully expect that to change later today, I just wanted to note this.

Happy hunting! Smilie

I really wish Disney had put as much effort into their Star Wars movies as much as you have into this thread.
I watched the first one or two I can't even remember nor do I care to. I won't spend money on the third one. I'll just watch it when it comes out on TV someday maybe.

Thanks for all the work!
Just gotta say I'm glad to see this trilogy end. I haven't watch this movie yet, just been disappointed with last 2 that I didn't feel the need to watch it in the theater.

For the 4k, I think you should bump deep discount to 2nd best since it is free shipping regardless of final checkout price. Also it may be no tax for most (I am going to check now) whereas Walmart and bestbuy will charge tax for most.

States the blu-ray comes with the DVD but looking at all the online retailers it's just blu-ray and digital code.

I think target has the better looking case art.
Reminds me of the original Star Wars color and art direction with their posters at the time.
