Second Wave of Disney+ Originals Coming to 4K Blu-ray in April

On April 30, Disney Home Entertainment will release four more of its streaming originals. This second wave of 4K UHD and Blu-ray release includes Star Wars: Andor — The Complete First Season, Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi — The Complete Series, Marvel Studios’  Moon Knight: The Complete First Season, and Marvel Studios’  The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

Andor - 4K UHD

The news comes after Disney announced plans in February to outsource its manufacturing, distribution and marketing of physical media to Sony Pictures Entertainment. Though physical media sales have steadily declined industry-wide year by year, the overlap between collectors of 4k and Blu-ray discs and fans of fantasy, sci-fi and superhero genres remains important. It’s this demographic Disney Home Entertainment is targeting, with new box art, concept art cards and steelbook packaging for all four titles.

In addition to featurettes and documentaries, releases for both Moon Knight and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier include deleted scenes from their series. Neither Andor nor Obi-Wan Kenobi include material left on the cutting room floor, but a series of extras explore the world-building of the former, while a director’s commentary by Deborah Chow caps off making-of materials on the latter.

This wave of releases marks Disney Home Entertainment’s second series of 4K UHD and Blu-ray collectors editions, after the 2023 release of Loki Season 1, WandaVision and seasons one and two of The Mandalorian. All titles are currently available on the studio’s streaming service, Disney+. However, given that sophomore seasons or follow-ups aren’t due for a while (Andor, The Mandalorian and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) or not at all (Obi-Wan Kenobi), the sets and their extras are meant to provide their fans with a stopgap to tide them over, as well as a reason to revisit their favourite shows.
