Star Wars fans anxiously awaiting a Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker rewatch won’t have to wait much longer: The final installment in the Skywalker Saga is coming to home video in March, Lucasfilm announced on Wednesday. Blu-ray and DVD copies will hit shelves on March 31, while digital copies will hit digital shelves two weeks earlier, on March 17.

In addition to the 142-minute movie, the new release includes a feature-length documentary, The Skywalker Legacy, about the making of the film. (Home releases of The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, and all three Star Wars prequels also featured making-of documentaries.) The bonus features also include behind-the-scenes footage revealing how production teams created and populated the galaxy far, far away. The digital release has an exclusive interview with Star Wars’ legendary composer John Williams.

Coinciding with Rise of Skywalker’s physical drop on March 31, Lucasfilm and Disney will also release the original Star Wars trilogy, all three prequels, The Force Awakens, and Rogue One on 4K Blu-ray for the first time. Best Buy is even selling an exclusive box set of all nine movies in the Skywalker Saga, which includes A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, and The Rise of Skywalker for $249.99. (Walmart has a non-4K edition for $129.99.)

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is available to pre-order now, in both digital and physical formats. It is expected to be streaming on Disney Plus sometime this summer.
