The Force Awakens with new 3D collector’s edition

August 11th, 2016 by bash Comments


Disney has confirmed that Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be coming out as a special 3D Collector’s Edition this November.

The four disc set will include a commentary track from director J.J. Abrams along with deleted scenes that weren’t included on the recent release in April.

The new special features include:

  • A look at how sound technicians blend action with audio effects in the featurette Foley: A Sonic Tale.
  • Sounds of the Resistance, another audio themed doc showing how the sound designers blended real recordings into otherworldly effects in the film.
  • Deleted Scenes – While there were a handful of deleted footage on the original Blu-ray, this one promises even more “never-before-shared” scenes.
  • Dressing the Galaxy – A look at how wardrobe designs from the original trilogy were retooled by costume designer Michael Kaplan to fit the galaxy three decades later.
  • Daisy Ridley and John Boyega share a conversation in The Scavenger and the Stormtrooper, a featurette that was released only on the previous disc as an exclusive at Target stores.
  • Inside the Armory – A tour of the various weapons and battle gear in the battle between the Resistance and The First Order.

The disc will be released on the following dates in these countries:

  • Holland and Sweden, Oct 31
  • Italy and Spain, Nov 2
  • Australia, Nov 9
  • U.S. and Canada, Nov 15
  • Brazil, Nov 16
  • Germany, Nov 24

No specific date for the UK yet.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
