If you want to save some money on all six installments, you can pick up the whole series for $89.99 on Amazon, versus $119.99 on iTunes. If you do buy on iTunes, you’ll be able to sync your purchases with Disney Movies Everywhere and download copies through alternate outlets like Google’s Play Store.

Each movie will also include hours of new bonus material featuring, deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes looks at the making of all six movies, and interviews with the cast and crew.

Earlier this year Apple’s iTunes Trailers website was among the first outlets to debut the trailer for the upcoming seventh Star Wars movie.
