Where Can You Watch The ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Documentary? Luckily, There Are A Few Options
If you thought the all that obsession with Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens had finally died down, you're definitely mistaken. Just as the movie is starting to leave the theaters and head to greener pastures (aka DVD and Blu-Ray release), it was announced on Tuesday that a Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens making-of documentary will be premiering at South by Southwest (SXSW), the annual festival in Austin, Texas. According to Variety, the new film is called Secrets of ‘The Force Awakens’: A Cinematic Journey, and it sounds absolutely awesome. But, I know what you’re thinking: What am I supposed to do if I can’t make it to this year’s SXSW? Where can I watch the Star Wars documentary without having to travel to Texas?
Well, fans, you are in luck, because the documentary is not just for festival-goers. Sure, they’ll have first dibs at seeing the film, which includes interviews with visual effects supervisor Roger Guyett, supervising sound editor Matthew Wood, and co-producer Michelle Rejwan — but there is still a chance for Star Wars fans everywhere to see the documentary. If you buy the Blu-Ray combo pack or DVD of The Force Awakens (set for release on April 5), you'll find it included in the set as bonus footage. That’s one sure-fire way to see the documentary that lets fans go behind-the-scenes and see all of the hard work that went into making Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens a reality.
Even better, that’s not the only way to view this masterpiece. If waiting until April 5 to watch the documentary is too much, fans can watch the movie as early as April 1 — it'll also will be available on digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere four days before the Blu-Ray combo pack and DVD are released on April 5.
So, take your pick, Star Wars fans. Travel to Austin, Texas to see the documentary when it premieres at the festival on Mar. 14, watch the digital version of it on digital HD or Disney Movies Anywhere on April 1, or head to your local video store on April 5 for the Blu-Ray combo pack/DVD. The choice is yours.... just use the force wisely.
