Apparently there’s some new film coming out called Star Wars: The Force Awakens. First I’ve heard of it. Can’t imagine it being that popular….

Anyway, Zavvi are bringing us the UK exclusive steelbook release and pre-orders are live right now.

As far as a 3D release goes, the official press release says “The 3D version of Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be available later this year.”

Pre-order: Zavvi

Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook – Includes Bonus Disc

Taking place thirty years after the dramatic events of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983), Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens begins in a galaxy in turmoil after the deposition of the evil Empire and the rising forces of the Rebel Alliance.

Determined to finish the work of Darth Vader and the Empire, Kylo Ren and his tyrannical First Order move forward with plans to assume total control of the galaxy. Heroes Finn and Rey, alongside iconic characters such as Han Solo and Princess Leia plus exciting new faces such as BB-8, together must face up to a seemingly unsurmountable task to stop the immense power of Kylo Ren and his army.

Visionary director J.J. Abrams brings to life the motion picture event of a generation. As Kylo Ren and the sinister First Order rise from the ashes of the Empire, Luke Skywalker is missing when the galaxy needs him most. It’s up to Rey, a desert scavenger, and Finn, a defecting stormtrooper, to join forces with Han Solo and Chewbacca in a desperate search for the one hope of restoring peace to the galaxy.

Bonus Features:

  • Secrets Of The Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey
  • The Story Awakens: The Table Read
  • Crafting Creatures
  • Building BB-8
  • Blueprint of a Battle: The Snow Fight
  • ILM: The Visual Magic Of The Force
  • John Williams: The Seventh Symphony
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Force For Change

    I can’t wait. Going to see this tomorrow night with my brother. I hope I’m not disappointed in the movie. I will be disappointed if this steelbook isn’t in 3D. I like collecting movies in 3D. I plan to get a 3D player and tv soon. May the force be with you all.

    Saw this on the 17th, one word… Awesome!!!

    Nice use of 3D in places too.

    Seemed a bit like a remake story-wise of a new hope half way through though, but still very well done, well written, no obvious complaints other than the sad bit, but wont give any spoiler about that, other than why?????? J.J. Abrams… Why???????

    …And that a little more thought could have gone into the redesign of the storm trooper armor.. still wearing flimsy strap on white plastic armour? With all the amazing designs used in games these days, they could have come up with something more up to date, and more bad-asss looking.

    Any idea if this includes the 3D version?

    I asked Zavvi, but they don’t seem to know either 😛

  3. A. Fiore says:

    Well it’s obvious a Steelbook would be done for this movie considering they have just created them for the previous 6 movies. Zavvi have the release date as 31st December 2016 on their site but I’m guessing that’s subject to change (hopefully much sooner).

  4. Thomas says:

    I hope the cover matches the other steelbook star wars blu-rays

  5. ADP ADP says:

    @zavvi come on you cheeky chaps let the 3d question outta the bag…is it included?

  6. dates in the USA are saying the 5th April but Zavvi and Amazon are the 18th ?

  7. YY Chromo YY Chromo says:

    Irrespective of the other steelbooks, it looks like shite. Especially that Marvelesque spine (which are never consistent).

  8. Brooker Brooker says:

    nice! Not bad for a little indie flick. Surprised anyone has heard of it to be honest.

  9. Why have Phasma artwork? The most pointless character in the whole film?

  10. And no title on the spine. Looks like I will cancel my preorder and see if someone else does a better job.

  11. Venusinfurs Venusinfurs says:

    cancelled, ugly artwork… the amray will probably have better artwork

  12. Jam Grantham Jam Grantham says:

    Thanks for the head up, this is so disappointing. Might cancel my pre order now.

  13. Little Grump Little Grump says:

    real shame it’s not going to match the design of the six steelies already in existence 🙁

  14. I may be OCD with this kind of stuff but why the hell isnt it matching with the other 6 steelbooks by having a silly pic on the spine. Its the marvel ones all over again.

  15. and have exactly the same steelbook so it’s hardly exclusive.

  16. Whoah cancelling. Why the hell do the first steelbooks for most releases suck. Not impressed. I’d prefer the poster artwork.

  17. Mike P says:

    The original poster would’ve have looked better but at least it’s consistent with the previous steelbook releases of showing the villains.
    I ordered mine through – £5 cheaper than Zavvi and released sooner!!!
