With a mere two weeks remaining until the digital and Blu-ray/DVD release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Entertainment Weekly got an exclusive look at the seven deleted scenes that will accompany the film…
If you want to know what the deleted scenes attached to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, when it comes home on digital download April 1, and Blu-ray/DVD on April 5, then look no farther than here, as our pals at Entertainment Weekly got an exclusive first look and description of each scene.
The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams had this to say about the deleted scenes:
"“There are so many things that end up getting cut because of the greater good, because of the rhythm of the sequence or the need to get on with it, a sense of redundancy. You don’t know any of these things when you’re making the movie, of course. It was sometimes after months of working on something that you realize finally — you just don’t need it.”"
After the worldwide theatrical release of the film, Abrams infamously said that he didn’t want any extras, and didn’t know if there would be any deleted scenes at all, in the Blu-ray release of The Force Awakens, but thankfully, we got some, and thanks to EW, here they are:
"“Finn comes face-to-face with a woman in the shadows of a small building. He raises his weapon … and makes a fateful decision.”"
"“Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) leads a squad of stormtroopers to the crash-site of the Millennium Falcon on the surface of Starkiller Base.”"
This deleted scene will be available digital only (But remember each Blu-ray combo pack includes a free download, so you can get it that way). When the First Order attacks Maz Kanata’s castle, Finn, Han and Chewie face down this squad of stormtroopers in the basement. Han apparently talks his way out of trouble.
There are four other deleted scenes and descriptions with photos, and you can see them over at Entertainment Weekly‘s exclusive content article.
I’ve got to say, just from briefly skimming over the descriptions and looking at the photos, I am now more excited than ever, over these deleted scenes. I can’t wait to see Finn’s decision with the woman in the shadows, and then of course, who wouldn’t want to see Han talk his way out of trouble? The Force Awakens comes home to digital download on April 1st, and Blu-ray on April 5th.
