Where does ‘Star Wars’ go next? There was a brand new full movie released to the public a couple of days ago. You might have missed it, because there has been almost no mention of it on social media. Or the late night TV shows. Or billboards. Or the sides of dusses either. The Force Awakens movie doesn’t end on a clifhanger eaxctly, but it does end with a lot of threads that can be followed up in the future installments and a lot of questions that need to be answered lately.
Speaking about Star Wars: The Force Awakens and its no doubt blockbuster opening this past Thursday. Star Wars fans flocked to the cinema in their droves to see the latest installment in a franchise that has had ist bumps along with the way but is currently full-on charm offensive. The most obvious dangling thread from Force Awakens is the identity of Rey’s parents. The implication is that she’s a Skywalker kid.
You can’t move without something Star Wars branded appearing in front of you, and that’s exactly how Disney likes it. The money Star Wars is raking in for Disney right now must be mi…nd blowing. Whoever said sarcasm was the lowest form of wit?
If you’re a fan of the Star Wars universe and keen to watch The Force Awakens in the comfort of your own Home Theater then the movie is now available to pre-order from three of the biggest digital content providers of such things – iTunes, Google Plys and Microsoft Store.
Not exactly listed is the release dates across any of the three stores, but with a surprise, the entries have popped up at all given what we would imagine to be a fairly lengthy pause between now and the cinema being made available for home viewing. Yes, this is what we know is the pricing, with both iTunes and Google Play selling the HD copy of Star Wars: The Force Awakens for $19.99, though Microsoft wins this round with its price-tag of just $14.95 whether you choose HD or SD. You’ll be able to watch that back on your Xbox One too, which is probably worth bearing in mind if you actually want to watch on a big-screen LED TV with 4K resolution and don’t have anything capable of doing so with iTunes or Google Play content.
What the need is to pre-order digital content that simply streams upon viewing. Quite not sure as yet, but other than someone at Disney wants to get the big numbers for the opening weekend, we’re just being cynical!
