It’s always exciting to see these kinds of teasers and clips about Star Wars movies. Not that fans actually need them. Most fans won’t need any reminders why it’s worth buying DVD or Blu-Ray copies of the films. Nevertheless, these clips are proof of the amount of effort put into the movies and show the little surprises in the extended copies.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens released in December 18, 2015 to a record of $247 million at the domestic box office opening weekend. It raked in $529 million globally. Currently, the film holds a record number of $2 billion in profit. With the release of Blu-Ray and digital copies next month, these numbers are expected to rise.
