Star Wars The Force Awakens Blu-ray Disc release date announced


The release date for the Blu-ray Disc version of the blockbuster film Star Wars The Force Awakens – which set records at the box office around the world – has been announced.

Directed by JJ Abrams, The Force Awakens – Episode VII – is set 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi.

The Force Awakens, which is now in its last days in cinemas, will be released on Blu-ray Disc on April 5, 2016 – according to Amazon.

We can only assume the release date on DVD and Blu-ray will be similar around the world including Australia.


Extras on the Blu-ray Disc are anticipated to be deleted, alternate and extended scenes with the trailers showing plenty of footage that didn’t make the final cut of the film.

There is also likely to be behind the scenes featurettes and a making-of documentary that follows the production from concept to completion.
