The Force Awakens Blu-ray to be Released on April 18 in the UK!


The guys from JediNews got a photo with a pack of Duracell batteries found in a local Tesco store revealing that The Force Awakens Blu-ray will be released on April 18 in the United Kingdom…




We reported  before that TFA Blu-ray is expected to hit digital platforms in the US on March 15 and the regular release of the movie is expected to be April 5. It’s strange that the UK will get the movie almost 2 weeks after the US. Or did something change with the release date? Whatever the case, I am sure that the answer is very near. At least now we know for certain that TFA will surely be released in April.

    While it is possible everywhere will get it on April 18th, I doubt it.
    Mostly due to different release days for home media. For example, the US
    tends to release DVDs and Blu-Rays on Tuesdays. April 5th is, but the
    18th isn’t. So April 19th is a possibility.

    I’m suspecting that the DVD/Bluray will not be released in the US on 4/5 (or 3/15 for digital) because I think we would have had an announcement by this point. I think April is likely, just not the 5th.

      Silly guy, there’s not 15 months 😉

      Doubt DVD/BD will be around by the time of VIII, They are really pushing this digital download shit on everybody now.

        You had a poopy day, didn’t you?

      • March 2, 2016 at 4:48 pm

        The desire for a physical copy which would denote physical ownership of a movie will still be around.

        • March 3, 2016 at 3:21 am

          I really hope so but the entertainment industry is notorious for it’s lack of logic on mattrs like this.

    Man, that is a good price on batteries!

    • March 2, 2016 at 6:02 am

      fucking bargain! And unlike the US, that’s WITH our sales tax (VAT) built into the price. Not bad at all!

      • March 2, 2016 at 1:29 pm

        Happy and glorious.

    They just need to make the announcement already. It’s getting old.

    • March 2, 2016 at 2:32 am

      I know right? This waiting four months from theatrical to home release is disgusting.

  • March 2, 2016 at 2:34 am

    Releasing it digitally a month early makes so much sense. How do you fight piracy? Release it digitally a month before people who actually want tangible goods. Because that won’t be online the same day. They do release people do actually want to own movies right? You know, a case, disc and inlay.

    • March 2, 2016 at 3:49 am

      NOPE. I’m all-digital these days. Gone are the days of displaying hundreds of DVD cases, neat as they were…at least since my kids came along! 🙂

    spanish – june 🙂

  • March 2, 2016 at 3:48 am

    Ah but what year….

  • March 2, 2016 at 4:29 am

    Hope that’s just a still and not footage since canted angles always remind me of 60’s Batman.

    • March 2, 2016 at 6:17 am

      It’s a deleted scene. Who cares what the angle is?

      Besides, if that is the angle, you can harp on how much you think JJ sucks as a Director some more. That hasn’t gotten tiresome at all in the past 2.5 months.

      • March 2, 2016 at 10:31 am

        well gotta surprise you there but there are people out there who care how angles, and in general, how movies look.

        • March 2, 2016 at 5:22 pm

          Thankfully, it didn’t look like that.

          Again. It’s not in the film. It’s a deleted scene. So why complain? OMG this deleted scene I never actually have to watch, which is content that is completely optional as an additional feature which requires me to find in a Blu Ray menu and hit OK to even view, has a bad angle!

          I AM SO ANGRY.

          What more, Snark he purports to hate Episode VII as a whole, and will never watch it again. So it makes even less sense for him to whine about the terrible angle of that still up top.

      • March 2, 2016 at 3:18 pm

        That last part, lol. True.

        • March 2, 2016 at 10:59 pm


          I don’t know, Coast Guard?

          No my friend, we will.

          We will.

        What is he looking at? Not seeing this “still”?

        • March 2, 2016 at 10:56 pm

          It was the top picture, the Snowtroopers going through the Falcon. He’s always angry. It’s his thing.

    • March 2, 2016 at 6:21 pm

      What are you looking at? link?

      • March 2, 2016 at 10:35 pm

        The header image.

        • March 2, 2016 at 10:43 pm

          Oh ok. didn’t think it was that simple, I’ve seen that image for many weeks.

    Can’t wait for the release, but hopefully the cover will be something closer to BB8’s one. I don’t like the poster of this film and the size of a Bluray case with so much characters won’t work.

  • March 2, 2016 at 6:24 pm

    I was told this was supposed to be pre-order starting today in the USA, but they haven’t even officially announced the US release date yet. Is it still pr-order in the stores and do they give you a release date?

    • March 2, 2016 at 7:52 pm

      Amazon’s got it for pre-order. They’ve actually had it for a while. I placed my order on Dec. 21.

      • March 2, 2016 at 10:44 pm

        Yes but they actually had it listed in a walmart ad like it was gonna be preorder from Mar 3 to April 4th. Odd
