‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Will Have Special Edition 3D Glasses
Thanks in part to worldwide box office grosses, 3D presentations of blockbuster films aren’t leaving us anytime soon. The least studios can do is have a little fun with it and offer an additional incentive, which is what Lucasfilm and Disney are doing for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Why wear those plain, boring 3D glasses when you can sport some special Captain Phasma shades?
RealD and Lucasfilm / Disney have partnered for special edition 3D glasses for screenings of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which should inspire audiences to hang on to these spiffy glasses instead of tossing them in that bulky 3D glasses recycling bin outside the theater.

Theater-goers can choose between BB-8, Captain Phasma, Kylo Ren and Stormtrooper-style glasses, each designed to evoke the aesthetic of the character they represent. While BB-8 is the most popular character right now, those Stormtrooper shades might be the sleekest of the bunch — or as sleek as you can get for 3D glasses.
It was also revealed today that — like most other major films — The Force Awakens will hit theaters in the UK and France a little earlier than the US release. France will have the film on December 15, while the UK will see it on December 16. Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives in US theaters on December 18.
