The Force Awakens was one of our top movies of 2015. It’s pretty cool to get to see more to it that we hadn’t yet seen. We had been hearing rumors of a scene where Kylo Ren boards the Falcon and now we finally get to check that out! There’s no word on if they’ll show that opening scene of Luke’s lightsaber floating around in space, though.
You can buy The Force Awakens on Digital HD on April 1st and Combo Pack on April 5th. Will you be buying it?
