If true, the Star Wars: The Force Awakens home release extras will be well worth the wait…

It’s not long now until Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives in our homes on DVD and Blu-Ray on April 5th. Fans are eagerly awaiting what special features will be packaged into the home release and Making Star Wars (via Squareeyed) claims to have scooped the bonus material from a Swedish website!

This Swedish site lists Secrets of The Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey, The Story Awakens: The Table Read, Building BB-8, Crafting Creatures, Blueprint of a Battle: The Snow Fight, The Visual Magic Of The Force, John Williams: The Seventh Symphony, Deleted Scenes and Force For Change as the special features.

We’re particularly excited for the building of BB-8 and the Secrets of the Force Awakens! Earlier reports also indicated that the release will feature seven deleted scenes, but the specifics have yet to be divulged. It is unknown whether J.J. Abrams has included the alternate ending, but it’s a distinct possibility.

We already know about some deleted scenes, including one with Han Solo and another with Rey. There is also a scene with General Leia and Maz Kanata at the Resistance Base involving Luke Skywalker’s old lightsaber, and another that features Constable Zuvio in action. There is also a scene that has Maz confronting Stormtroopers, and another where Chewbacca rips the arms of Unkar Platt. However, it’s unclear which deleted scenes will feature on the DVD. Nevertheless, the other features sound great and we can’t wait to buy our own!

Hidden deep in the woods, past the abandoned insane asylum and long-forgotten summer camp, off the old dirt road, across the creaky timber bridge, lies a log cabin. Under the full moon some have said they've heard blood-curdling howls from deep in the basement, though none have been brave enough to explore further... If they had, the shocking reveal would be that the screams come from old horror VHS tapes, accompanied by the maniacal laugh of Phil Robinson, brought on by comics and wrestling promos. The self-confessed "horror guy", he has also been known to talk about Spider-Man and heavy metal at great, unnecessary lengths. Yes, he knows he needs a haircut.
