Ron Howard's latest film arrives on both formats in September.
Disney/Buena Vista says 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' will be available on Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on September 25.
Flight school flunkie and petty criminal Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) gets recruited by Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) for an intergalactic mission backed by gangster Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany). He teams up with his future Wookiee co-pilot Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo), his childhood friend Qi’Ra (Emilia Clarke) and suave smuggler Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover), owner of the Millenium Falcon.
The releases will include a lossless 7.1 soundtrack (Dolby Atmos on the 4K UHD) and supplements include:
