I prefer owning movies outright, so I'm waiting for Rise of Skywalker on Blu-ray. Yes, it will be on Disney Plus, but I'd rather own than rent. And with Movies Anywhere, you get a digital copy with many Blu-ray purchases. 

And thankfully we don't have to wait much longer: Star just announced that The Rise of Skywalker Blu-rays come out on March 31. That's two weeks after the digital download (also Movies Anywhere compatible, mind you) release date of March 17. The Disney Plus date is TBA.

The Rise of Skywalker Blu-ray release special features

Oh and it wouldn't be a big Star Wars release if there weren't a ton of special features. Annoyingly, the digital version is getting one more feature than its Blu-ray counter part: a piece called The Maestro’s Finale that features composer John Williams talking about his history working on the Star Wars saga, with a focus on scoring Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
