Great news for all those Star Wars fans (such as myself), as Disney and Lucasfilm have announced that a brand new Star Wars: The Force Awakens Collector’s Edition is on its way.
The Collector’s Edition Blu-Ray will consist of the theatrical release on 3D Blu-Ray, 2D Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital HD and will also include new bonus material that was absent from the previous Blu-Ray release. The Collector’s Edition will also feature a great looking cover depicting the final lightsaber duel on Starkiller Base.
