Today is a good day Star Wars fans and no it is not an April’s Fool joke! If you pre-ordered your copy of Star Wars: The Force Awakens from the Google Play Movies & TV store, it should be in your Google account this morning. The worldwide release of the digital versions of the blockbuster happens today and with the movie already setting box office records, there is little doubt that the digital and physical media version (which come out next week) will do just as well for Disney.
Pre-orders for The Force Awakens started back in December and you have been able to order the $19.99 movie knowing you would have it the day it was released. If you didn’t pre-order the
movie, you are still in luck – although any friends who did order it may have already watched it. Twice. You can go to the Google Play Movies & TV store this morning and buy it for $19.99. Once you purchase it, you can play it on any compatible device and yes, you can Google Cast it to your TV to watch at home.
This latest edition to the Star Wars franchise has already earned an eye watering $2 billion globally and with digital sales expected to be very high, it will only add to that total.
