App gives sneak peak into Star Wars blu-ray extras

Curious what George Lucas and co. have in store for the “Star Wars: The Complete Saga” Blu-ray collection? The discs won’t be available until Sept. 16, but an upcoming iPhone and iPad app will spill some of the beans. Starwarsearlyaccess3

The Star Wars Blu-ray: Early Access App, available for free tomorrow (July 20) in the App store, promises to offer an early look at footage and bonus materials from the collection. All totaled, the blu-rays will have over 40 hours of bonus footage.

Apps that tie-in with big home releases aren’t exactly new. Disney has found an especially creative way to integrate the two, as it did with “Tron: Legacy” and its second screen feature. What’s especially distinctive about this one is the fact it’s releasing so far in advance of the blu-ray.

The app’s release is timed to tie-in with Thursday’s launch of the San Diego Comic-Con, a mecca for Star Wars fans.
