Here’s everything you need to know about the Star Wars: The Force Awakens blu-ray, including release date and deleted scene info.
During a press tour for the Bad Robot-produced 11.22.63 Hulu series, Abrams confirmed that there wouldn’t be an extended cut of the film released for home video. But he did confirm we’ll definitely be getting those deleted scenes we were hoping for. So at least we’ll get to piece these together.
Original Story 12.28.15:
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is has made over a billion dollars in the box office in its first month in theaters, so it’s no secret that it’ll be a long time before it fades away from movie screens and even longer before we can own the film for our blu-ray collection. And that blu-ray is indeed a few months out still.
According to Blu-Ray.com, the Star Wars: The Force Awakens blu-ray is set to release on April 5. It will be distributed for home video by Disney, of course. The blu-ray currently has a list price of $29.99, but you can find some pre-order deals on Amazon for $19.99.
No details yet on what’s included in the package besides the actual film, but we’re betting on some good behind-the-scenes stuff as well as a deleted scene or two. Hopefully, we’ll also get a little “Making Of” documentary as with past Star Wars DVDs and blu-rays. And don’t forget the inevitable commentary from J.J. Abrams (and maybe Lawrence Kasdan and Kathleen Kennedy). It would be nice to hear the three talk about the movie scene by scene.
