Each day brings us nearer to the home release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but Disney/Lucasfilm aren’t showing signs of slowing down with promotions. The company has released another clip from the Blu-ray copy of The Force Awakens, keeping fans more excited than ever to get their hands on the film.

The new Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-ray clip features a longer look at this video released yesterday showing Daisy Ridley and John Boyega’s lightsaber training, which is from the Target Exclusive full interview of the two stars.

The latest video starts off with Ridley and Boyega’s commentaries.

"Three months, it was three months of training!" Ridley shares. 

The clip then features a behind-the-scenes footage of Boyega doing some lightsaber training with Nines the stormtrooper, dubbed by fans as "TR-8R" for his exclamation in the film.




The clip above is taken from the full twenty minute feature that will only be available on Target’s edition of the Blu-ray. Meanwhile, portions of the interview will be available on other special features.

Why, oh why can’t they just put all the special features in one version?

Obviously, those three months of training that Daisy mentioned in the video paid off. The lightsaber scene that made it to The Force Awakens’ final cut is, in my opinion, one of the most intense sequences that added an appropriate amount of drama and action to the movie. Of course, a Star Wars movie wouldn’t be complete without some lightsaber action. John, Daisy, and Adam Driver delivered their lightsaber battles quite impressively.

Those scenes deserve to be watched over and over again, and we’ll be able to do just that when Star Wars: The Force Awakens becomes available on digital HD tomorrow, April 1 and on Blu-ray/DVD on April 5.
