STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS 4-Disc Blu-Ray Promises More Deleted Scenes

We knew that the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-ray released this past April wouldn’t be the last one, but it’s surprising that Disney is double dipping so soon. Today they announced the release of a “3D Collector’s Edition” that will be spread across four discs and include a commentary track from director J.J. Abrams along with deleted scenes that weren’t included on the recent release. The four-disc set will also port over “classic bonus features” from the disc you bought less than six months ago. 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.
  • star-wars-the-force-awakens-sxsw-3-600x411Inside the Armory – A tour of the various weapons and battle gear in the battle between the Resistance and The First Order.

If I may offer a suggestion: perhaps we just wait on getting Star Wars Blu-rays until the inevitable massive box set that will come out sometime in 2020. I know that’s a while to wait, but if Disney keeps doling out these features piecemeal, it’s a disservice to fans. Better to save your money rather than buy the same movie on Blu-ray twice in less than a year.

But if you simply cannot wait for more Star Wars (or if you were prescient enough not to purchase the Blu-ray back in April), you can pick up Star Wars: The Force Awakens – 3D Collector’s Edition 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
