Star Wars “Secrets Of The Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey” Doc/Blu-Ray Bonus Hits SXSW

Star Wars The Force Awaken Doc

The home release for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will include a feature-length documentary about its creation, Secrets of The Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey, but it’s getting a premiere of its own at SXSW.

If any film deserves this sort of treatment, it’s probably the latest Star Wars installment, especially considering that the focus is on the entire journey, encompassing the entire road to getting this film into theaters.

Whether the film itself is deserving of such treatment, or not, it’s certainly the sort of thing that fans are going to enjoy, and adds tremendous value to the price of a Blu-Ray.

The Blu-Ray hits on April 5th, with a slightly earlier release on Digital April 1st.
