Yup...this one I want a steelbook for from BB.  I know some will wait for the ultra special collector series version in a few years but I am not that patient, haha.

Knowing Disney they'll do exactly what happened with OZ Great and powerful and make the 3D separate from regular version. I hope not but can see it happening since Disney will milk this for every penny it's worth.

Yeah superfast.. the preorder was on walmart shelf the morning it hit the theaters. Talk about getting your attention while you wallet is out.

When am I charged for a pre-order?

You’ll be charged when your order ships. When you place a pre-order, Target sends an authorization hold request to your card issuer. If the card issuer allows the authorization hold to expire, Target may resubmit the authorization hold request. Depending on the item’s release date, you may see several authorization holds for the same item. Please note that authorization holds are not actual posted charges. They are temporary and will eventually expire and drop off your account. If at any point during the pre-order process an authorization hold request fails, Target automatically cancels the order.

also with target yes it only a pre auth

but i have noticed on anything i ever pre order from there that they will preauthorize your card for the full amount on average about once every 10 days until release. And if at anytime there not enough to cover one those pre auths the pre order is canceled without warning. 

 

so it not a one time pre auth it is a almost weekly pre auth cycle until release

Yep so be careful if you are doing a long preorder especially if you are using a checking account or a low credit limit credit card.

It would be cool if the movie came with the novelization as well, considering Target still sells books.

Or have a card, like a RedCard, that might get a new number when it's swapped for a card with a chip in it.

Looks like target's price has dropped to 19.99 and you still get the gift card. Shipping is $4.00 if you don't spend $25, but free if you have a red card.

That is much more tempting but wish you could do store pickup. Target shipping tends to be slow for movies for me and this is one I will want to watch at release.

Steelbook or bust on this one. 

 

Also, is this the 3D one or the 2D one?  Target's not been much on 3D movies or recent, so I'd expect this to be 2D.

Is there actually a Steelbook announced at this point or are people holding out assuming it will be released eventually?

Nothing's been announced yet, though as they had them for movies 1 - 6, it makes sense there will be one for TFA.

Oh yeah, steelbook is preferred. Just saying it isn't a terrible backup option with the $5 GC in case BB doesn't come through with a steelbook preorder.

No need for a steelbook for me so I reordered at $18.99 (REDcard price) + $5 Gift Card

I haven't even seen the 3D version available for pre-order anywhere, starting to question if it's even going to come out.

I haven't been following it (didn't care for the movie, it felt like a remake of the original, only the rewrite was handled by a bunch of feminists) so I may have missed it somewhere. Then again, considering how pre-order crazy this movie has been, it does feel damning to not see the 3D version available anywhere.  Given Disney's history I don't have a clue what to expect lol.

At the time of release, they made it so if you bought the 2D version and wanted a 3D copy, you could pay them 5.99 for the 3D version.  I think they learned not to do that again as they haven't released anything like that since.

Also haven't seen a DVD only version and you know that's coming.  DVD is up for preorder in other regions.

Yeah I bought the 2D version and sent off for the 3D disc. Let's hope they learned from the past.

I could never understand Disney's pattern of failing to release a 3D bluray for their biggest box-office hits. They didn't release a 3D bluray for Frozen but they have no problem releasing it for just about every title since except for Big Hero 6.

If it's true they won't be coming out with a 3D release of the new Star Wars movie, I won't be buying the 2D no matter how great the movie is and will wait for a good deal in the UK which is the only place to get a good deal on Disney bluray titles.

Even if it does come out in 3d, it will be 60 dollars, right?

 

Glad to see youre still around spouting off bullshit, showing yourself to be a male chauvinist pig.
