In Just 4 days, STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS will be released on the STARZ Network.
With episode 8 being pushed back for release in 2017, and ROGUE ONE coming out in December of this year, STARZ is looking to fill in that gaping hole in your chest — that yearns for some STAR WARS fuzzy feelings. STARZ plans on releasing, not only the flick, but also some special features and deleted scenes included with it, namely: “Secrets of The Force Awakens”, “The Story Of The Awakens: The Table Read”, and the crafting of the lovable droid, BB-8.
STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS was an enormous hit, bringing in $2.06 Billion worldwide and brought back some of its core characters, such as: Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher), and Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew). With a mixture of the old the school feel of the original STAR WARS flicks, coupled with the style of J.J. Abrams, they managed to re-capture the energy of the franchise. With Disney at the helms, we can imagine a whole catalogue of new Star Wars flicks to appease the hungriest of fanboys.
