While most movies have cashed in their hype by the time the home video release rolls around, most movies aren’t “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” With the blockbuster set to arrive on a variety of formats in a couple of weeks, Disney is going out with a bang. Today at SXSW, fans got to check out “Secrets Of The Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey,” a feature-length documentary about the making of the movie that will be an extra feature when you pick up your Blu-ray next month. But if you weren’t in Austin, the studio has provided a little taste.
The brief teaser shows that the doc will go deep behind-the-scenes of the making of ‘The Force Awakens,’ from back to front, including getting input from Harrison Ford and Adam Driver on that moment. Meanwhile, the Blu-ray extras will also feature a cast table read of the script, and you can get a preview of that below as well. But that’s not all.
Industrial Light & Magic has dropped a massive portfolio of concept art from ‘The Force Awakens,’ with depictions of scenes you saw in the movie…and some you didn’t…
“Each artist began to explore his individual response and, collectively, we began to answer with our words and art. Out of our brainstorming sessions emerged visual imagery of where we might want to go and what it would look like when we got there. We were not merely illustrating scenes that already existed: we were initiating storytelling concepts through the visual images themselves,” co-production designer Rick Carter said.
Check it all out below. ‘The Force Awakens’ hits digital download on April 1st and then Blu-ray on April 5th.
