The 2022 film “The Woman King” is officially coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc on December 13th via Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The film, based on true events and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, stars Viola Davis, Thuso Mbedu, Lashana Lynch, Sheila Atim, and John Boyega. It is most certainly worth noting that this film, at the time of writing, is “Certified Fresh” over at Rotten Tomatoes.
The tech specs for the 4K UHD Blu-ray include a 2160p video presentation in the 2.40:1 aspect ratio with HDR10 form of high dynamic range and Dolby Atmos sound. Tech specs for the Blu-ray include a 1080p HD video presentation in 2.40:1 with Dolby Atmos. The 4K release will come in the form of a “combo pack” with its Blu-ray Disc counterpart included. Both the 4K and Blu-ray releases (individually) will include a digital code (copy) of the film. You can now find the 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray available for preorder over at retailer Best Buy.
The bonus materials set to be included with the 4K and Blu-ray releases are listed below.

The remaining films in the “Star Wars” film franchise – so far – are all coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on March 31st it seems, via Disney, according to retailer listings. There will first be a very lavish, expensive box set available (seemingly exclusive) at retailer Best Buy called “The Skywalker Saga” (pictured above) which is now available for preorder. That Skywalker Saga set will include Episodes 1-9 of the films, as well as two Blu-ray Disc counterparts for each film, filled with bonus materials – yet to be detailed. Stay tuned for further details regarding this release as it develops.
Now, as of today, there also are most certainly individual releases for Episodes 1-7 coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on March 31st as well as the film “Rogue One – A Star Wars Story” (2016). It’s certainly worth noting that these titles are now all listed over at retailer Best Buy, individually. So, as you’d expect I’ll be listing the films coming out in theatrical chronological order with direct links to the Best Buy preorder listings – not yet functional but currently placeholder pages. UPDATED: I am now adding Amazon preorder listings to this post as they are getting listed.
NOTE: The final film in the Skywalker Saga (“Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker”) has been announced officially, as you can read HERE in my previous news post regarding it. This story regarding the individual releases is still developing, so once again, stay tuned.
