As usual, it looks like I will be getting multiple versions of this “Star Wars” home release, as I love the steelbook cover that Best Buy has, and I have to get the gallery book included in the Target exclusive! But no matter which version you decide to get, “The Last Jedi” home release is definitely not skimping on special features, as we’re getting a whopping 14 deleted scenes, and a directors commentary right off the bat, which is great.
