After numerous reports and conflicting dates in different regions, we finally have a confirmation on the release date of The Force Awakens Blu-ray in the US. Also Target revealed the cover for their exclusive TFA release.

 

Disney officially listed the movie on the online Disney Store for an April 5 release date.

 

If you pre-order the movie, which is listed as a Blu-ray Combo Pack by April 4, 2016 you will receive an exclusive lithograph set, while supplies last. The price is $25. The combo pack is listed to include a Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD copy. There are no special features mentioned for this release, but things could change after the official announcement, which we are hearing is happening later today.

 

The guys from StitchKingdom made further investigation and pointed out that Disney has updated TFA graphic on their official page, adding not only the April 5 date for the Blu-ray release, but also April 1, 2016 for a digital HD release.

 

So as you can see, there is not much info here, but at least we have a confirmed date. We just have to wait a few more hours for the official announcement later today, which also happens to be Disney’s annual shareholder meeting, held in Chicago and scheduled to start at 11 am ET/8 am PST.

 

Stay tuned…

 

Thanks to Grant Goble for the heads up.
