Could The Old Guard get the DVD and Blu-ray treatment?

The Old Guard is the summer blockbuster needed in a time of drought. However, it’s only available to stream on Netflix. Will you be able to own The Old Guard on DVD and Blu-ray in the future?

It’s always hard to tell with a Netflix Original movie or series. Some of them are released on DVD and Blu-ray, while others remain exclusive to the streaming service. Most of the time, the movies do remain exclusive but there have been times, like with The Marriage Story, that the DVD release has happened.

So, what’s the case here? Right now, we can’t give an answer, but we can make an educated guess.

There’s a chance The Old Guard will come to DVD and Blu-ray

We just have to look at who has produced and filmed The Old Guard. While billed as a Netflix Original, Skydance Media is the main production company listed. This could lead to a DVD release.

The production studios will want to make as much money as possible. Unless the acquisition was for exclusive rights, there’s a chance Skydance will want the movie to head to DVD and Blu-ray to gain as much money as possible. After all, some people prefer to own the DVDs for bonus features or just to avoid needing a subscription to a streamer all the time.

Of course, Netflix won’t want that. In a world with more streaming services, Netflix is going to want to remain competitive and that means keeping as much exclusive to the service as possible.

There are no signs as of yet that the Netflix movie is definitely heading to DVD. However, you can get the comic books that The Old Guard is based on if you want to continue the story (and see the source material). They are available on Amazon.
