Earlier this month, Disney, the new owners of the Star Wars universe, announced the latest movie in the franchise: Star Wars: The Force Awakens, will arrive on digital platforms on the 1st of April. Dendy, is looking to get a bit of positive marketing for their video streaming service Dendy Direct with a new campaign called ‘Dendy loves Star Wars’, offering the movie for just $5.89.
The price is right, with other streaming services such as Google play offering the movie for $19.99. The DVD for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will launch a week after the digital launch, with both Blu-Ray and DVD’s being made available on April 7th, with Blu-Ray priced at $39.98 and DVD at $24.98 – though the Blu-Ray version has a digital copy included which very likely will be able to be redeemed through Google Play thanks to a deal done with Disney and Google.
Movies purchased (or rented) through Dendy Direct can be streamed via PC or mobile app, but for a more convenient ‘big screen’ experience Dendy specifically advising that movies can be Chromecast to a TV from the Chrome browser or their mobile apps.
With $2 Billion in box office earnings, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is, at the very least, a commercial success, but with a 92% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes it’s a critical success as well.
It’s a pretty good movie if you haven’t seen it already, so it’s well worth the $5.89 if you haven’t pre-ordered it from another service already. Head over to the promo page and check it out.
