The 3D version of Star Wars: The Force Awakens releases on Blu-Ray on November 15, and it offers a suite of new bonus features, including additional deleted scenes. Why these were left off of the original Blu-Ray releases disc is anyone's guess, but I'm hoping Lucasfilm took the time to finish the sequences. The deleted snowspeeder scene on the original disc is comically bad due to the unfinished CGi work.

This disc also contains a commentary track from director J. J. Abrams, which I would love to hear given just how upfront he's been in interviews about the creation of this film. Other exclusive features dive into the film's foley work, costumes, and armory. This Blu-Ray also contains a new conversation with Daisy Ridley and John Boyega.

I hate buying films twice, but...well...I'm a sucker for stuff like this. I don't like doing it, but I gotta see it all. Don't worry, I'll shake my fist in anger at Lucasfilm as I ring up at the checkout.

Below is a clip from the film that Lucasfilm is using to promote the new Blu-Ray release.
