Star Wars: The Force Awakens maybe a 3-disc release



The release dates for Star Wars: The Force Awakens on digital download and Blu-ray disc are subject to continued speculation and rumour whilst the movie continues to play in theatres.

If these rumours turn out to be true, then digital pre-orders will available to download and view from services such as iTunes as early as 15th March and the 3-disc release will be available from 5th April.

In the meantime StarWarsNewsNet has shared what appears to be a list detailing all the special features:

*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
*Force For Change

Star Wars News Net got hold of quotes from two of the film's editors, with one of them, Mary Jo Markey, saying that fans shouldn't expect a lot of additional scenes: "There aren’t a lot. There’s one with Harrison Ford, there’s one with Rey, but there aren’t a lot. I think there are maybe seven or eight."

And even those won't add much to the story that isn't already there, says editor Maryann Brandon: "I honestly think that what is in the film is exactly what needs to be in the film, and what isn’t remains fun but not necessary."

DK Books' Star Wars: The Force Awakens visual dictionary is replete with insightful suggestions of deleted scenes including a Snowspeeder chase, popularised by merchandise, and Snowtroopers storming the Millennium Falcon. An invaluable reference and highly recommended.

None of the information regarding the home retail release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been confirmed. I'll update once an official announcement has been made.

You can pre-order Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Blu-ray disc and digital download.
