Season 2 of The Mandalorian is currently airing on Disney Plus but does the live-action Star Wars series have a Blu-ray and DVD release date?
The Mandalorian has been dubbed ‘the saviour of Star Wars’ by many fans since the Disney+ series launched in 2019.
And now, in 2020, season 2 of The Mandalorian has arrived and has cranked the excitement all the way up to 11 with new characters, locations and stories.
However, something that is still missing from The Mandalorian is a DVD and Blu-ray release.
But is The Mandalorian getting a DVD and Blu-ray launch and if so, when is the release date likely to be?
The Mandalorian season 2 on Disney+
The Mandalorian season 2 finally landed on Disney+ on October 30th, 2020, with new episodes arriving weekly.
The new batch of episodes continues the story of the galaxy’s best space dad, Mando (aka Din Djarin) and the Child (aka Baby Yoda).
After the events of season 1, Mando has been tasked with finding a mysterious race of sorcerers called Jedi in order to reunite the Child with its own kind.
The Mandalorian on DVD and Blu-ray
- The Mandalorian is not available on DVD and Blu-ray at the time of writing.
That’s right, it has not yet been announced whether or not The Mandalorian – seasons 1 or 2 – will be coming to DVD and Blu-ray.
As a result, no release date for The Mandalorian on DVD or Blu-ray has been officially revealed.
Opinion: Why The Mandalorian hasn’t been released on DVD yet
While we may not have a Mandalorian DVD release at the time of writing, that doesn’t mean there won’t be one in the future.
The biggest hint that a DVD release is coming is the 2020 remake of Mulan which is already available on DVD and Blu-ray after its cancelled cinema release and transition to Disney+ earlier in the year.
Chances are, Disney is hoping to grow the Disney+ streaming service a little more before they release The Mandalorian on DVD and Blu-ray.
The same can be said of season 7 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars which is also exclusively available on Disney+ at the time of writing.
The Mandalorian is five-times bigger than any other original show on the Disney+ streaming service according to Screen Rant and as there aren’t any other big-name original series on Disney+ yet, a Blu-ray release would potentially keep people off the streaming service at a time when Disney want to be growing the platform.
As a result, fans will have to stay patient until more big-name releases, such as the Marvel TV shows, finally arrive on Disney+.
Seasons 1 and 2 of The Mandalorian are available to stream now on Disney+ with new episodes arriving on Fridays until December 18th.
