UPDATE: Amazon has removed the release date on their site to just a pre-order status.
Although not officially confirmed, Amazon customers have been notified this morning that they will receive their copy of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” Blu-ray on April 5th. Amazon.com has also been updated their site to show the April 5th release date:
There have been rumors for weeks that April 5th was the official release date. Several brand new “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” merchandise items were announced for release for April 5th and that seemed like a pretty big red flag that more than likely the Blu-ray would be released the same day.
Expect to hear an official announcement from Disney regarding the release date along with the official cover for the Blu-ray/DVD and 3D Blu-ray.
