Star Wars coming to Digital HD April 10 with new extras


Star Wars has always been a bit behind the curve in releasing the series’ films on new platforms much to the chagrin of its fans. It took forever to get them on DVD and then forever again to get them on Blu-ray, and now on April 10 you’ll finally be able to own the digitally so you can watch them on any platform. 

You will be able to re-purchase the six movies you almost already surely own as a collection or individually at all leading digital retailers, including iTunes, Google Play, VUDU, Amazon, Xbox Video, PlayStation Store, and Verizon Fios. But you aren’t just getting the movies. Believe it or not there are still new special features that can be made for these films. Each digital release comes with two new, never-before-seen bonus features: Star Wars: Discoveries from Inside and Conversations. These two features will have different subjects with each release, that you can read about in the full break down of each release below.

And before you get too excited, the Digital HD releases are the same ones found on the Blu-rays so no original cuts.
