Just when you thought the Force was in hibernation for awhile, the Force has awakened once again with a 3D collector’s edition later this year.

Disney is releasing Star Wars: The Force Awakens 3D Collector’s Edition on Nov. 15 in the U.S. and Canada, just about a month ahead of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (Dec. 16, 2016). The 4 disc set will include an awesome looking 3D collectible packaging, as well as the original theatrical release on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, Digital HD and DVD, along with originally released bonus features and brand-new bonus material.
