Who’s prepped for a little more Star Wars?!
An extended Maz Katana scene, Kylo Ren exploring the Millennium Falcon — both highly sought after deleted scenes from the home video release release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be featured but there’s plenty of more surprises in store for fans.
Fortunately, Lucasfilm has released a brand new teaser featuring clips of the seven deleted scenes, and it looks like they will all be worth your time!
The scenes we’re aware of are as follows — thanks to Entertainment Weekly for breaking it down:
- John Boyega’s FN-2187 hasn’t yet fled from the First Order, but he’s already a lost person. This shot is from before the troopers round up the villagers but after his mask is marked with the blood of a fallen fellow soldier. The conscience-stricken Finn comes face-to-face with a woman in the shadows of a small building. He raises his weapon … and makes a fateful decision.
- When the First Order attacks the castle run by Lupita Nyong’o’s Maz Kanata, Han, Finn, and Chewie face down this squad of stormtroopers in her basement. Han does his usual stellar job talking his way out of trouble.
- Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) leads a squad of stormtroopers to the crash-site of the Millennium Falcon on the surface of Starkiller Base. Inspecting the abandoned starship stirs bittersweet memories for the Dark Side acolyte, who is still battling the pull to the light side … and now knows his estranged father is conspiring against him.
- Carrie Fisher’s General Leia, much earlier in the film, weighs what to do after the First Order’s massacre on Jakku. Emun Elliott, best known for playing Moray on the British series The Paradise and Marillion in Game of Thrones, also gets a moment to shine as the Resistance communications officer Major Brance, who receives an early distress signal from BB-8 informing them of the attack.
- Poe Dameron leads a squadron of Resistance fighters into an assault on Starkiller base. Most of the aerial battles in The Force Awakens took place within the atmosphere of planets, and this would have provided a moment when we get to see a large group of starships actually among the stars.
- This scene takes place after John Boyega’s Finn is injured in this lightsaber duel against Kylo Ren. It features Daisy Ridley’s Rey back at the Resistance base, watching over her critically wounded friend as she gets an update on his condition from Dr. Kalonia (played by Downton Abbey‘s Harriet Walton.)
- Finn and Rey hijack a pair of First Order snowspeeders one of these devices for a desperate escape from the depths of Starkiller Base. How did they get from the interior of the base to that snowy woodland fight with Kylo Ren? This sequence will connect the plot points.
