There’s a new Blu-Ray of The Force Awakens coming, and this one will actually include an audio commentary by JJ Abrams.
Releasing on November 15th in the US the 3D Collector’s Edition of The Force Awakens will include the film on 3D Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray, and a disc of extras. Entertainment Weekly has details on the new extras being included on the set (which will carry over all the special features from the release this past April):
- A look at how sound technicians blend action with audio effects in the featurette Foley: A Sonic Tale.
- Sounds of the Resistance, another audio themed doc showing how the sound designers blended real recordings into otherworldly effects in the film.
- Deleted Scenes â€“ While there were a handful of deleted footage on the original Blu-ray, this one promises even more â€œnever-before-sharedâ€ scenes.
- Dressing the Galaxy â€“ A look at how wardrobe designs from the original trilogy were retooled by costume designer Michael Kaplan to fit the galaxy three decades later.
- Daisy Ridley and John Boyega share a conversation in The Scavenger and the Stormtrooper, a featurette that was released only on the previous disc as an exclusive at Target stores.
- Inside the Armory â€“ A tour of the various weapons and battle gear in the battle between the Resistance and The First Order.
These aren’t technically “new” extras, they look like the digital-exclusive ones that were included in the Target and iTunes versions of the release earlier this year. It’s likely the digital-exclusive deleted scene will be included on the disc now as well.
