Star Wars: The Force Awakens captured the hearts and minds of audiences all over the world when it launched into theaters in all its 3D glory. Then, when it released on Blu-ray, fans with 3D televisions didn’t really get to consume the same thrill. As in, there wasn’t a proper 3D edition of the movie released.

Now, finally, we’ll be getting the Star Wars: The Force Awakens 3D Collector’s Edition when it arrives in the United States and Canada on Nov 15. Have a look at the new hotness:

Upon its debut last December, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” received rave reviews from both critics and audiences, and shattered box office records with over $936 million domestic and $2 billion worldwide. The film has since been nominated for five Academy Awards® and took home the BAFTA Award for Special Visual Effects. “The Force Awakens” re-ignited the Star Wars franchise and fans eagerly await the next installment, arriving in theaters Dec. 2017, as well as the first in a series of standalone films, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” premiering on Dec. 16, 2016.

    Rumor (and it’s only rumor for the moment) has it that we’ll get a whole lesser-announced BOX later in October, for the “special edition” crowd that wants to pay them more money.
    Also featuring, get this, the three 3D-mastered Prequel Trilogy titles, including Phantom Menace 3D that played theaters, and the supposedly 3D-remastered Eps. 2 & 3 that Fox didn’t get a chance to put into theaters since the Disney changeover happened first.
    (Fox was going to release the Blu3D Phantom as a “player exclusive”, back in the Avatar days when those were incentives to buy Panasonic equipment, but that practice mercifully retired before Fox could sell the disk.)

    If it happens, it’s particularly telling, as some will say, “Yeah, ‘later”s what they said with Frozen!”, only in this case, we actually ARE getting 3D Disney Blu-rays later.
    Between this and actually releasing a 3D Zootopia, there may be a very positive change happening very slowly at BVHE. :) All those “Oz the Great & Powerful” traumas may finally be healing.
