Official press release:

iTunes Extras is the ultimate way for fans to get instant access to a film’s bonus content — along with any additional Extras content, like ‘Dressing the Galaxy,’ that becomes available even after the film’s initial digital release.

For Costume Designer Michael Kaplan and his team there were many elements to be considered with designing the look for Daisy Ridley as Rey. “We knew she was going to be in a world of men doing things like climbing and dealing with rocket parts and living this Spartan life, so we had to make her practical, but we also wanted a glimmer of femininity about her,” says Kaplan. “I also knew there were going to be sandstorms and dust, so I wanted the character to be in light colors. It also felt right for her emotionally and for the desert. It also felt very Star Wars especially when you look back at Luke and Leia.”

Continuing, he says, “We eventually gave her a wrap, which could protect her face against dust storms. Everything is there for a reason, but it gives her a very beautiful image when all the pieces are put together. Rey wears the costume throughout the film, although we had 25 copies made and about 12 pairs of boots.”

We first encounter Rey as she rides across the desert on this large, almost tractor-like speeder, her face covered with her wrap and goggles. It is intentional that audiences won’t know whether she’s a man, woman or even an alien. “J.J. [Abrams] wanted her to be mysterious,” continues Kaplan “So she has this frog mouth and strange goggles. You really don’t know what you’re looking at, and then as she unwraps her face you see that it’s this young girl. Fans can learn more about the origins of Rey’s goggles when they check out “Dressing the Galaxy.”



Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now available on Digital HD on iTunes

    Fuck iTunes

      Hey now, as much as iTunes sucks, this can’t be entirely blamed on them. The way Disney has spread around bonus features to every outlet BUT the goddamn disc I paid for is nauseating.

        Nothing like annoying the fans….

        Not to say here in Europe there´s no such store with extra 20 minutes….we only have ONE BLURAY, or a combo BLURAY+DVD (why would I watch the movie in low quality in the first place?)…

    Hey, look! More material that there was ABSOLUTELY no excuse not to put on a mostly data-empty second BD disc. Neat!

    Go fuck yourself, Disney.

    Yea, not fond of this digital featurette roll out, especially considering that the retailer exclusive videos have been stronger than most of the stuff on the physical copy.

  • April 22, 2016 at 9:52 pm

    Guess I made the right purchase decision. But yeah, this is kinda bullshit for the people who bought the physical disc.

    Don’t worry, I am sure it will make it’s way to youtube within a week.

    • April 23, 2016 at 11:58 pm

      It’s a;ready there, lol.

    I’m not buying into that script leak, but to be completely honest I would be cool with it

    I’d like to see her hair come down like that at some point in the trilogy.

    This is exactly why I always go with digital copies. Not only are they much more convenient, but this kind of thing happens more than you think. Many of my iTunes movies have suddenly had more extras

    I think that’s Hard Case’s profile pic. I know why they haven’t yet though is because it’s too feminine and they wanted to make her hardcore as possible in TFA, Plus it would have gotten in the way during the action scenes too. But I can see them using it when she’s not training or dueling.

    At least it’s on YouTube. It’s exclusives like this that really piss me off. It is a pretty nice featurette, for all that’s worth.

    J.J. Abrams: “Disney never made me hold back bonus features just to gather extra cash from the fans? That would be stupid!”

    *one week later*

    JJ Abrams: “Behold this iTUNES EXCLUSIVE FEATURETTE!

    “Not holding back” my ass.

      And the laughing stock that is the “target exclusive” features, which even if you buy the target dvd and download the code, you don’t get.
