Star Wars: The Force Awakens UK Blu-Ray Release Date Revealed
Though we haven't had any official word from LucasFilm or Disney on when Star Wars: The Force Awakens is coming to Blu-Ray and DVD, there have been multiple signs that it could be as soon as early April. Now though, we've got our first confirmation on when Blu-Rays and DVDs will be hitting stores.....in the UK.

The people over at Jedi News UK caught wind of an in-store promo for Duracell's partnership with Star Wars. Their tipster noted that beneath the artwork, the promo revealed that Blu-Ray's and DVD's would be available on April 18th



What does this mean for folks in the US then? Rarely do Blu-Rays and DVDs emerge on both sides of the Atlantic on exactly the same date, especially with Disney. With the majority of Disney's most recent hits, home entertainment sets have been released in the US after they hit stores in the UK. For example, Avengers: Age of Ultron was available in the UK on September 14th 2015, but folks in the US had to wait until September 25th. Similar trends have been seen for the majority of Marvel movies, Tomorrowland and Cinderella, which would seem to suggest that US Star Wars fans will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on the discs. That being said, other big movies do buck that trend; Pixar's Inside Out hit North American stores earlier, while last year's other big smash Jurassic World saw UK and US releases separated by just one day.

Either way, those Blu-Ray sets are coming soon, and they're going to be loaded with bonus features.
