As the dust settles following the release of Episode VII and the emergence of Rogue One being released in December there has been lots of rumours doing the rounds at this time. One line of questioning appearing time and time again is, when will the DVD/Blu-Ray be released? When? When?. Well based on some whispers through the grapevine and an online “slip up” it would appear that we can now make a realistic guess.
Walmarts website was blessed with an upload of what people would be familiar with as the “Walmart Exclusive” DVD/Blu-Ray packaging emerging on their website. This was taken down as quick as it was put up, however due to some eagle eyed observers we have the information that was given along with the cover.
According to numerous outlets and of course speculation amongst fans it would appear that we may be looking at a DVD/Blu-Ray release date of sometime around April, this would coincide with the usually accurate “Digital Bits” who have Amazons release date as the 5th of April before this was once again yanked down from their site. The rumour mill also seems to be hinting at an iTunes release date sometime sound the 15th of March.
As reported from Den of Geek:
“A DVD release and a two-disc Blu-ray pack are listed, and retailers have been taking pre-orders for Star Wars: The Force Awakens since the movie was released. Disney is expected to make a formal announcement about the disc release shortly, and it’ll confirm the release date then. Expect the UK and US release dates to tally closely together”.
