Walt Disney Home Entertainment has revealed that Star Wars: The Force Awakens will hit 3D Blu-ray in the UK on October 31. However, in a move sure to anger some franchise fans, the upcoming Collector's Edition Blu-ray will also feature several exclusive bonus features, including a chat track by J.J. Abrams. This means some will feel they have to double-dip even if they don't want the 3D version.

When I sat down to watch the Blu-ray review copy of the hit DreamWorks animated feature Kung Fu Panda 3 at the weekend, it didn't take long to realise that something about the audio sounded a little 'off'. A quick look at the disc's Set-Up sub-menu revealed the problem – the only English language track available (as with the multiude of other language tracks) was presented as 'lossy' DTS 5.1! Which seemed rather strange given that the previous two Kung Fu Panda films had been chanpioned for the dynamic lossless multichannel soundtracks that accompanied them on Blu-ray.
