Happy Star Wars Day!
What? You didn’t know today was Star Wars Day?
Well, today is May the 4th. Now say fourth with a little lisp…you got it…a little slower…hear it? Sounds like “force”, doesn’t it?! Get it – “May the FORCE” be with you…aka STAR WARS DAY!
You’ll find a TON of Star Wars info, parodies and even sales popping up in time for Star Wars Day, but I wanted to make sure you also had all the info you needed on the recent home release of The Force Awakens, as well as the newest Star Wars film being released later this year (see below for more info & the official trailer).
Star Wars: Dressing the Galaxy
‘Dressing the Galaxy’ is an all-new bonus feature available as an iTunes Extras Exclusive for fans who buy or own Star Wars: The Force Awakens on iTunes! Fans will get the whole story of how Rey got her look and learn more about their favorite character’s costumes.
Check out a clip from the bonus feature about Rey’s look below:
There’s also a link to download Rey Costume Design images.
iTunes Extras is the ultimate way for fans to get instant access to a film’s bonus content — along with any additional Extras content, like ‘Dressing the Galaxy,’ that becomes available even after the film’s initial digital release.
