Star Wars: The Last Jedi officially clocked in at 2 hours and 30 minutes, but director Rian Johnson says there is still 20 minutes worth of deleted scenes ready to go. Johnson describes each deleted scene that will be included on The Last Jedi Blu-Ray.
This particular scene is an extended cut of Finn and Rose infiltrating Snoke’s Star Destroyer.
“There’s a whole extended sequence where Finn and Rose and DJ sneak through the Mega Destroyer when they’re kind of, after they sneak in with DJ and they’re trying to find the tracker. There’s a whole extended sequence. It’s a full sequence of like stuff with them sneaking through this big office area of the Mega Destroyer and then having to fake out these Stormtroopers.”
Another cut sequence will feature an emotional scene between Rey and Luke Skywalker on Ahch-To:
“And then on the island there’s a massive sequence that we shot with Daisy and Mark, which is kind of an additional sort of trial/test that she goes through, that involves her and Mark, and then a big emotional scene between the two of them. I mean, it’s big stuff, it’s like actual real scenes.”
Johnson also states that there will be more scenes included, such as Poe catching up with Finn, and more Rey on Ahch-To scenes. What excites me the most is these are fully edited scenes that we’ll be seeing. This sounds like the first time we are going to get a really solid Blu-ray. The Force Awakens and Rogue One Blu-Ray sets lacked special features big time. I’m hoping we’ll also get cast interviews, commentaries, and a documentary. In the meantime, go watch Star Wars: The Last Jedi in theaters now!
