Soon the “force” can be with you wherever you go. All six Star Wars films will be available for digital download for the first time in the series’ history on April 10.
As the Dec. 18 release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens draws nearer, Disney and 20th Century Fox are giving fans a new way to indulge in the iconic series by making it available on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Prime, and Amazon Instant Video. All three digital retailers have already made the series available for pre-order.
According to a Star Wars blog post, the digital versions of the films will include deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes stories, and interviews with the films’ stars.
“Since the debut of the first film nearly 40 years ago, Star Wars has become a worldwide phenomenon with legions of fans from every generation,” said Alan Bergman, president of Walt Disney Studios in a statement. “It’s only fitting that audiences enjoy this legendary saga and its many fascinating behind-the-scenes stories on a wide variety of platforms, and we’re very excited to finally bring all six films to Digital HD for the first time.”
