'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' is one of the most awaited blu-rays perhaps in history (keep in mind the blu-ray popped up around 2008), and with Wal-Mart revealing one of the covers, it was easy to assume news were coming soon.
Since December, rumors of its release date started circulating, indicating it was going to be released in April... and they were right, only that it'll be lot closer than you might expect... almost-less-than-a-month closer.
Starwars.com has confirmed the news after Bob Iger revealed it during Disney's annual meeting of shareholders:
APRIL 1st (DIgital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere) - APRIL 5th, 2016
Check out the trailer below:
