HappyStar Wars: The Force Awakens DVD/Bluray Release Day! (Even though I already downloaded my digital copy on Friday and have been watching it nonstop for 5 days, but still…)

 

Yes, the interminable 4-month-long wait is finally over and you can own the highest-grossing film of all time! The DVD/Bluray includes all kinds of cool special features, including deleted scenes, a behind-the-scenes breakdown of the climactic duel between Rey and Kylo Ren, and also a featurette about the Star Wars: Force for Change initiative. If you’re like me and had your interest piqued during this particular clip, I have good news!

 

To mark the occasion of the DVD/Bluray release, TFA producerKathleen Kennedy and Star Wars legendMark Hamill have officially announced the launch of this year’s Force For Change campaign to help make a positive impact on our own little star in the galaxy!

 

Sponsored by CrowdRise, the Force for Change initiative has already managed to raise $10 million in donations from the ever-generousStar Wars community (take THAT, Dark Side!) to benefitUNICEF, the American Red Cross, the Make-a-Wish Foundation, and theBoys & Girls Club of America.

 

This year’s campaign starts today (April 5) and runs until Star Wars Day (May 4), and every donation you make will be matched dollar-for-dollar (up to $1 million) by Force For Change. Not only that, contributors will have the chance to earn all kinds of cool perks and prizes by donating, including signed copies ofTFA or even an all-expense paid trip to one of the locations from TFA!

 

Check out Ms. Kennedy and Mr. Hamill below to get the scoop on this year’s campaign:
