Where's the News for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" BluRay 3D Release?


There have been questions coming in about whether or not "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" will be coming out on BluRay 3D.  The worry about its status is certainly understandable.  Retailers and CE are slowly giving up on the format.  Many TV manufacturers aren't including 3D features in their newest models (minus the high end models of course).  Disney is the company who made this and their commitment to 3D has been more than shaky these days (though kudos to them for releasing "The Good Dinosaur" on BluRay 3D this week).  Of course, the biggest point of worry is that a BluRay 3D hasn't been announced and to my knowledge there isn't on up for pre-order (and before I get any e-mails: I don't shop at Amazon.com, so I am completely in the dark on what they have up for pre-order these days).

These are all good points and valid concerns.  In this case though, I'm cautiously optimistic that we'll get a BluRay 3D release at some point.  First of all, this is one of the movies that made almost half of it's $2 billion dollars thanks to 3D tickets.  Second, while Disney themselves have backed off BluRay 3D, their subcompanies (AKA: Marvel, Pixar, Touchstone, etc...) seem to still be releasing movies in 3D, so there's a chance Lucasfilm falls under this category as well.  Third (and this is the big one) if there is any movie that will sell on BluRay 3D, it's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."  Look deep inside your hearts, you all know this to be true.  So for the time being we'll be keeping this one off our MIA list.  We're not discounting the idea that we won't be getting this, but at the moment we'd be surprised if we didn't.  So as Yoda taught Luke, patience will be the emotion we must learn.  Until next time, may the force be with you!
