Up till now, pirated versions of Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been limited to poor quality camcorder footage. Today though, you can get a high definition version as the Blu-Ray for The Force Awakens have been leaked onto various torrent sites.
Scheduled to go on sale in two weeks time, The Force Awakens’ Blu-Ray was first leaked yesterday by a release group called REPLiCA. According to a photo posted by them, the group has somehow managed to acquire a regular retail copy weeks before the Blu-Ray was supposed to be available for purchase. Within 12 hours of the torrent going live, the Blu-Ray was snatched 250,000 times and still growing.
As expected of Disney, the company has been busy sending takedown requests to Google in an effort to stop the torrents. Unfortunately for them, trying to get a torrent taken down is equivalent to chopping the head off a hydra.
