If you are a Star Wars fan, chances are you already own a copy of this movie in one format or another. If you own any sort of 3D projector or TV, this is a must. I was quite pleasantly surprised when my package arrived and noticed it was quite larger than an average Blu-Ray. It is hard to tell from the picture used on this listing, but the packaging is not a blue clam-shell like you get with normal Blu-Ray movies It is a much prettier, thicker, box much like the two trilogy Blu-Ray box set. If you have a collection of physical media movies, this one will not blend in with the others.
Now... Let's hope they don't do this double-dip with Rogue One as well.... Obi-Wan? A little help with that please.
I purchased the UK Collector's Edition which includes 3 BDs, one 3D, one 2D with J.J. Abrams' commentary, and one of Extras. The current cost is GBP19 which makes it a bit of a bargain.
The UK derscription:

The slipcase cover is black rubberized with a 3D lenticular insert of the artwork shown. The UK version sits in a cardboard pocket that extends up the back with a description of all 3 BDs including the fact that the 3 BDs are All Region (A-B-C), which also appears on each disc. I cut this card off the bottom and inserted it in the slipcase.
Came in good condition
I was 11 when Star Wars was released in '77. It was the best age to dream of space travel in 12 parsecs and mastering the Force. (Seriously, I would never have whined and complained like Luke!)
Obviously, any movie branded "Star Wars" is going to get my money regardless of watchability (examples: Episodes 1-3). This one is reductive and has some plot issues, but it rises above a bunch of problems in 4 -- better acting, focus on relationships and "people" (be they humanoid, alien, or droid), killer special effects that don't hijack the plot, and an ease with the material and universe.
My favorite part is having a tween girl to be a fan girl with me. She was 11 for this release. We are both seriously loving Rey and discovering this new Star Wars together.
fresh right out of the package the dvd case was broken in several places, and had something that looked like glue from a glue gun smeared on the top. But whatever, I just wanted the movie I could care less about the case.
The pact planet size the punch ! Kylo Ren is the best villain that the franchise has ever produced! This is just the beginning !!! On must-have for any Star Wars fan or any fan for that model for that matter! Phenomenal Disney Blu-ray loaded with extras!
This listing is a little misleading. I bought this via the Amazon mobile app, which makes it seem like this is 4K (see attached picture). However, this isn't 4K/Ultra HD. It's a normal Blu Ray disc, along with access to digital content. If you're browsing via the browser it doesn't say 4K but the mobile app does.
Yes, the movie is fantastic, but my rating is about the listing itself. I'm surprised and disappointed that this is normal HD.
I take responsibility for not doing more research on this but I'm adding this review so others don't make the same mistake I did.
I give It a 10! A 10! 10! 10! I'd keep going......but I think people get the point! So now I'll be heartbroken and thinking of the beautiful princess Leia..... :'(
Great movie! Great blueREY!!
I love this movie so much if i had to choose one movie to watch this one would be the one i would choose this conbo pack is amazing it has all three formats blu ray dvd and digital hd it has special features that go into how it was made and everything this is a great film for everybody i truely didnt think that Disney could make that magic that the originals had andbyet they proved me wrong and i am very happy for them making it as great as it is i would revommend this movie to anybody
