September 16th isn’t very far away, but for Star Wars fans awaiting the release of the entire SW saga on Blu Ray, the wait is excruciating. To ease the pain, albeit slightly, 20th Century Fox has released a small amount of the discs’ bonus features as an iPad app. Star Wars Blu Ray Extras Early Access is exactly what its name states – a quick look at some of the vast extras that are included on the upcoming Blu Ray collection of the Star Wars films.
Bonus materials included in the app are minimal, but that’s the best way to whet the appetite for more, isn’t it? The introductory menu system for maneuvering between the different films is slick, and it’s fun to play around with some of the ship models and other extras included. Credit to 20th Century Fox for finding a new way to promote and generate interest in a release.
The content won’t keep fans occupied for long, but it’s fun and it’s free – and maybe, just maybe it will be enough to keep the excitement building until September 16th.
