Interestingly there are no deleted scenes despite the fact we know there was loads footage that wasn't used in the final cut and there's also no commentary track from director Gareth Edwards, which suggests we might see a collector's edition later in the year, just like we did for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The exact aspect ratios and sound formats have yet to be confirmed but considering this is a Disney release, a 7.1-channel DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack seems the most likely. There is no word on a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release but given Disney has yet to support the new format that isn't a surprise.
