'Star Wars' Digital Movie Collection Coming On April 10th
For the first time in the mega film franchise's history, the entire Star Wars saga - from Episode I to Episode VI - will be available for digital download on April 10th, according to an official announcement from StarWars.com.
Counting both box office earnings as well as sales from home video releases, the Star Wars films have grossed approximately $2 billion worldwide. The digital release of the six films will generate even more revenue for the franchise with ease of accessibility and the ability to play the digital movies on a wide variety of devices.
The movies will also be available for download - either individually or as an entire collection - from several digital retailers, such as iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, Xbox Video, and Playstation Store.
Each digital download of a Star Wars movie will also include a host of never-before-seen extras, such as deleted scenes and documentaries. For a full breakdown of bonus content bundled with each movie, check out Collider.
The move also comes as excitement continually builds for the next chapter in the series, Episode VII: The Force Awakens. The film is slated to release on December 18, 2015.
