If you are a huge fan of Star Wars, loved the latest seventh episode and were looking to buy the DVD to watch its extra scenes, you are in for a huge disappointment.
In the UK, The Star Wars: The Force Awakens is available in a slightly expensive Blu-ray at £15 ($21.5) and a normal DVD at £9.99. However, the DVD release does not feature the much expected and hyped about film's "cinematic journey" and deleted scenes, which are not included in its theatrical version.
Disney has not provided the download code too in the UK to watch it online, as compared to its DVD versions sold in the US.
The Force Awakens of the Star Wars series with its main cast of Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac along with the usual cast of Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and others, released in the UK on 17 December 2015 and its DVD was out on 18 April. Even after making over £100m at the global box office, not having a DVD release with all the extras could drive fans to piracy sites to catch a glimpse of some much-anticipated scenes like "Finn and the Villager" or "Jakku Message" or the big one where Kylo chases and searches for the Falcon.
The frustrated fans feel they have been "ripped off" because these extra scenes are missing in the DVD version. The teaser for the deleted scenes has already been viewed by nearly 2.5 million fans on YouTube. One fan has tweeted that he was "not happy – extras on the Force Awakens DVD. Not all of us have Blu-ray! Rip-off!"
For some fans though, who own a Blu-ray it's a prize. One fan tweeted: "Now I can't wait to watch the deleted scenes tomorrow. The extra features on The Force Awakens Blu-Ray are GOLD!"
"As a company we are committed to seeking out the best ways to provide audiences with access to Disney content. Each territory is different, and we evaluate and enact distribution strategies on a market-by-market basis. In the UK this means we do not include extras across our DVD products," a Disney spokesperson was quoted as saying in the Guardian.
