It’s here! Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now available to watch at home on Digital HD, Blu-ray and DVD. We had quite a wait for this one! But, the wait was worth it because it is chock-full of special features like deleted scenes, cast interviews and so much more. Keep on reading to the bottom and we’ll share some sneak peeks at what you’ll find.
The movie itself PLUS all this cool extras on the Blu-ray calls for a special Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie night!! I was sent a big box of goodies to check out that are all perfect for amping up the Star Wars fun! For snacks there are yummy popchips.
And even though Little R is a bit too young to see the full movie himself, he is a HUGE Star Wars fan and loved all the new Star Wars toys now available. Doesn’t he look fierce in his Darth Vader mask??
I think the big winner was the NERF Star Wars Episode VII Nerf Rey (Jakku) Blaster. Even though he already has a lot of NERF guns, he declared that this one is the best of ALL of them! I liked it too. It’s very easy to fire and reload and shoots the darts far!!
To cap off the evening this Star Wars Hot Chocolate makes a great dessert. It’s easy to make, very creamy, and extra delicious. If you decide you want to head over to the dark side, you can make it extra dark by using dark chocolate chip morsels.
STAR WARS HOT CHOCOLATE RECIPE
3/4 cup white sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup chocolate chip morsels
1/3 cup boiling water
3 1/2 cups milk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup half-and-half cream
Mix sugar and cocoa in a saucepan. Mix in the boiling water. Stir while bringing to a boil. Add chocolate chips and continue to stir until melted. Continue simmering and stirring for 2 minutes. Add in 3 1/2 cups of milk and heat until very hot, but DO NOT BOIL! Remove pan from heat and stir in vanilla. Divide between 4 mugs. Add the cream to your mugs to cool cocoa to drinking temperature.
For even more fun, print these Star Wars activity pages! There are coloring sheets, a maze, and a memory game! The memory game is extra fun. It has printable hexagons that you fold up to turn into 6-sided dice to play the game.
One of the fun things you’ll see is an inside look at a special visit BB-8 made to NASA’s JPL laboratories where he interacted with the best and brightest droids from this galaxy as well as celebrating the inaugural international flight of Japan’s ANA BB-8 Jet! Check it out:
