Star Wars: The Force Awakens had approximately seven billion trailers and TV spots. Now, months after its release, there’s still more. This trailer for the home video release contains our first look at one of TFA’s deleted scenes—as well as all the extras we can expect on DVD and Blu-ray.


We have the full list of DVD and Blu-ray extras below, but the most interesting thing to fans will probably be the deleted scenes.
