'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Gets a 3D Collector's Edition this Fall

Can't get enough of Star Wars? Disney has announced a Star Wars: The Force Awakens 3D Collector's Edition that will include a 3D Blu-ray copy of the film along with new bonus features including audio commentary with director J.J. Abrams and even more deleted scenes. The four-disc collection will have exclusive, collectible packaging (seen below) and will be available in the United States and Canada on November 15, 2016.

The bonus features exclusive to the 3D Collector's Edition include:

  • 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.
  • Dressing the Galaxy – Costume Designer Michael Kaplan reveals how the costumes of the original Star Wars movies were re-envisioned for a new generation.
  • 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.”

It's a shame that these weren't included in the original Blu-ray release, but better late than never, right? Star Wars: The Force Awakens earned $936 million at the domestic box office and $2 billion worldwide, making it the third highest grossing film of all time.  Star War isn't showing any signs of slowing down, either. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set for release later this year on December 16 and The Force Awakens' follow up, Star Wars: Episode VIII will be released next year in December 2017. The Force is strong with the franchise once again.
