Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens already made over $2 billion at the box office while in cinemas and is set to continue to make a splash on home video in April. We previously announced that it would be arriving in the US on the 5th of April and in Europe on the 18th and it seems Ireland is getting its own date - on April 15th.
This is of course good news though it would have been nice if we could get it before the States, especially seeing as the film launched earlier here back in December 2015. Ireland continues to receive home video releases on the Friday while the UK gets them on the Monday and we can't figure out why despite much Googling, so just be happy about it.
The disks will be loaded with shiny goodies, including plenty of deleted scenes which director J.J. Abrams has talked about quite extensively and a long making of which will show how those wonderful effects were put together. And here's what some of it will look like.
Of course if you're on board with the digital revolution, you can stream or download the film from the 1st of April 2016.
