Just in time for Christmas… Star Wars the Force Awakens 3D Collectors edition is out today and I was lucky enough to get a review copy from Disney! This 3DCollectors Edition comes jammed packed with Star Wars goodness.
Here is what you will find inside:
3D COLLECTOR’S EDITION BONUS FEATURES:
- Audio Commentary with J.J. Abrams – Enter the mind of visionary director J.J. Abrams as he reveals the creative and complex choices made while developing the first film in the new Star Wars trilogy.
- Foley: A Sonic Tale – Foley artists, consisting of old pros and new talent, unite to bring the world of Star Wars: The Force Awakens alive through the matching of sound to action.
- Sounds of the Resistance – Hear how the epic sound design of Star Wars: The Force Awakens moves the Star Wars legacy forward.
- Deleted Scenes – View never-before-shared scenes that didn’t make the film’s final cut.

- The Scavenger and the Stormtrooper: A Conversation with Daisy Ridley and John Boyega – The two new stars share the thrill of working together on the adventure of a lifetime and becoming part of the Star Wars legacy.
- Inside the Armory – Take a fascinating tour through the design and creation of the weaponry in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
- Classic Bonus Features – These offerings from the April release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens include the complete story behind the making of the film, an unforgettable cast table read, insights from legendary composer John Williams, and deleted scenes, as well as features that dig deeper into the creation of new characters such as BB-8, the design of the climactic lightsaber battle between Rey and Kylo Ren, the film’s remarkable digital artistry, and the Star Wars: Force for Change global aid initiative.
I was literally blown away by all the bonus content available, many of it released on itunes or as Target exclusives! I am a huge commentary junkie and to be able to hear the behind the scenes info with J.J. Abrams himself was probably my favorite part of the the bonus content. A close second would have to be the deleted scenes that didn’t make it in the theatrical movie.
I am kinda glad I didn’t pick up the Star Wars Force Awakens Bluray when it came out earlier this year as the 3D Collectors Edition is chock full of Star Wars goodies, not to mention 3D is how the Force Awakens is meant to be seen.
I give Star Wars the Force Awakens 3D Collectors edition 4.5 out of 5 stars, my only complaint was this should have been released in April when the original bluray was released. Still I highly recommend picking this up just in time for Christmas, this is perfect for a stocking stuffer for the scruffy looking nerf herder in your life.
Don’t forget Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, premieres December 16, 2016.
