It’s no joke that April can’t come soon enough for us Star Wars fans. April 1st is the day that you can download a high definition copy of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and other Disney Movies. However, the Blu-Ray and DVD Combo makes its leap from light speed to the shelves on April 5th.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens grossed over $926 million at the box office here at home and $2.05 billion across the rest of the galaxy. The Force Awakens shattered box office records, so it will definitely be interesting to see how the sales in the stores do.
Speaking of stores, different retailers will have different offers for the in-home release of Star Wars:The Force Awakens. Target, Walmart, Best Buy, and Disney Stores are offering fans retailer-exclusive collectible versions, so make sure that you visit your favorite retailer on the day of the release. Here is a list of the stores an their respective offers.The 3D versions of The Force Awakens will be available later this year. That’s right, the April release does NOT include the 3D version of the film. This one is planned for a later release with additional bonus features.
- TARGET – The Target Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-ray Combo Pack comes with exclusive packaging and an additional 20 minutes of bonus content, including never-before-seen interviews with Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, and a deeper look at the movie’s costumes and weaponry
- WALMART – The Walmart Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-ray Combo Pack comes with exclusive BB-8 packaging and an exclusive Star Wars Galactic Connexions trading disc
- BEST BUY – The Best Buy Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-ray Combo Pack features exclusive Steel Book Packaging
- DISNEY STORE – The Disney Store Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-ray Combo Pack comes with an exclusive lithograph set, while supplies last of course
Inside the combo packages you can find an in-depth documentary, exclusive interviews with the actors, and a feature about the building of BB-8. The filmmakers bring a new cast member to life and it becomes an instant fan favorite. Watch the legendary composer, John Williams and the Seventh Symphony an the music of Star Wars and The Force Awakens. The music of Star Wars has always been iconic. Scores for the previous six films were done by the acclaimed composer John Williams, and once again he has returned to score Star Wars: The Force Awakens, ultimately garnering his 50th Oscar nomination for his work. There are also deleted scenes. I am personally interested in watching a segment called “Force for Change”; it shows how Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ initiative has united Star Wars fans all over the globe to help others.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens was directed by J.J. Abrams and written by Lawrence Kasdan & J.J. Abrams and Michael Arndt. The film was produced by Lucasfilm President and eight-time Academy Award nominee Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk.
The movie is sure to create more fans and fun times watching it over and over with friends and family, that’s no joke!
The Force be with you all.
