The Force Awakens gets a 3D Collector's Edition this October!
In the neverending age of double dipping with home video releases, that will change for fans on October 31st, 2016 with the release of a 3D collector’s edition blu-ray. Housed in a four disc collectible set with a 3D blu-ray, standard blu-ray and DVD, the set will also include exclusive new bonus features including a never before released audio commentary with J.J. Abrams, additional behind-the-scenes materials and even more deleted scenes than previously. While obviously a double dip, this edition tacks on so much additional content not previously available on the first editions of The Force Awakens that staunch collectors will likely find themselves trading in their copies of the film to make way for this far more comprehensive edition. Retailing at approximately $26, this ornate special edition reissue of the film should provide Star Wars fanatics, as of current, the ultimate home video release edition of the film. While this still doesn’t include the IMAX footage as shot and presented theatrically, having the 3D and additional bonus content is a step up from what people got the first time around. So start saving your money and prepare for the Collector’s Edition blu-ray of Star Wars: The Force Awakens!
