‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Blu-ray to Arrive as 3-Disc Set

force awakens poster

Although we don’t know precisely when in April “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” will arrive on Blu-ray, we now have some details about the format.

According to the listing on Blu-ray.com, the release will include three discs: two Blu-rays and one DVD. An earlier listing had indicated there would be just one Blu-ray disc.

Of course, we can only guess what will be on those three discs (beyond the blockbuster movie itself, naturally); presumably, lots and lots of bonus content.

In the meantime, we can still see “The Force Awakens” in theaters, where it’s grossed more than $2 billion worldwide.

    That doesn’t sound like a three-disc set. That’s just Disney’s standard home video release formula; a 3-D/Blu-ray/Digital Download version, a Blu-ray version, and a DVD version.

    Blu-ray for the movie, blu-ray for the extras, and a dvd copy. Oh and maybe a digital download.

    I’m a user at Bluray.com and can tell you that entries in the database there should not be taken as fact they can be put up by any of the registered users of the site and often are speculation.

    a digital download is usually just a code, not a disc. Id assume a movie bluray, a bonus content bluray and a dvd copy of the movie because some people still have dvd players… of course this set will probably set you back more than the regular versions. Im sure we;ll see just a bluray with the movie and “some bonus content. same with the dvd version. those will be $19 and $14 respectively probably. the 3 disc set will probably be 25-35 bucks, maybe more

    It’s still going strong in theaters as much as we’d all love to have it at home, they’ll wait its run out

  • NYC1977

    That’s been either debunked as false, or changed since the film is still doing well in theaters

    I just want the version that includes the edited/deleted 20 minutes from the film. I have a strong feeling that a lot of it may explain some things that left some of us feeling “uninformed”. I want more Maz, General Leia’s speech to The New Senate/Government/Republic on Hosnian Prime, the additional battle sequences, and that missing boy, and the alternate viewpoint of Darth Vader vs. Luke Skywalker on Bespin.

    I have a bad feeling about this…

    This is probably the overpriced “3D” edition. 3D, Blu Ray, DVD and it costs double just getting the regular blu ray.

    Oooh….cool comment, edgelord.

    I’m getting this no matter how good or bad the movie actually was, before the “Special Edition” 6 disc box set arrives

  • Todd

    what no 3D?

  • Jon

    Just a reason to put a $30 price tag on the initial offering of the video. Thanks, but no thanks. I’ll wait to buy it on eBay or Amazon for about a quarter of that.

    I’m actually surprised that they didn’t wait until the Winter Holiday Season of 2016 to release it, as a tie-in to Rogue One’s theatrical release. April 2016 is SO CLOSE it’s almost unheard of. Basically, a week or two after the film is gone from theaters, it will be on DVD. Talk about a turnaround.

    Messed up release according to bluray.com as they list:
    regular 1 blu-ray disc version
    special 2 blu-ray disc version
    regular 1 3D blu-ray and 1 regular 2D blu-ray version
    AND NO 4K VERSION!!!!! WTH it looked so much better in the very few places that had it in 4K in the theaters.

    So no 4K!!!!??!!!!! And even for regular blu-ray if you want the bonus disc and 3D then you need to buy both the special 2D edition PLUS the 3D edition? Gosh Disney are such grubbers. And they hate physical media which is why they won’t get on board with 4K blu-ray because they just want to push crappy quality digital downloads instead.

    NO WAY!

    People seem to forget that with BluRay, an extra disc just for extras is rarely needed. There should be enough storage on the 2D BluRay disc for most any extras there would be. I would think that a 3 disc set will be 3D BluRay, 2D BluRay and DVD, and include the code for digital download, just like most of the later Marvel releases.

    No this is pretty common for a few years now, Spectre just came out in February after releasing in November three months earlier. Skyfall released on the exact same schedule three years ago.

    I know. As a kid from the 1980s, who banked on waiting and anticipation, this is almost too fast too soon.
