New Images Shed Light On Star Wars: The Force Awakens Deleted Scenes

Now that three months have lapsed since Star Wars: The Force Awakens took theaters by storm, we’re beginning to learn more and more about not only the creative process behind J.J. Abrams’ space opera, but also the content that didn’t quite make the cut.

Prior to release, the director himself estimated that there were about a dozen deleted scenes from The Force Awakens that remained on the cutting room floor and today, Entertainment Weekly has shed light on those sequences in question.


In anticipation of the film’s Blu-Ray and DVD release early next month – April 5, to be specific – here’s a list of the extra content that will be included on The Force Awakens disc.

-Stormtrooper Finn’s run-in with a Jakku village woman in the opening attack.

-Han, Finn, and Chewie face down a squadron of stormtroopers in Maz Kanata’s basement.

-Kylo Ren leads snowtroopers to the crashed Millennium Falcon at Starkiller Base, and has an emotional remembrance inside.

-General Leia is introduced earlier in the film, as Major Brance (Emun Elliott) gets a distress signal from BB-8 informing them of the attack on the Jakku village.

-Poe Dameron and the other X-Wings prepare for lightspeed as they head into battle, giving us a chance to see starships in space.

-Finn and Rey escape Starkiller base on a First Order snowspeeder, while another gives chase.

-Rey gets an update on an injured Finn’s condition from Dr. Kalonia (Harriet Walton).

Star Wars: The Force Awakens makes a blast for Blu-Ray and DVD on April 5. It’ll launch a little earlier on digital platforms, where J.J. Abrams’ space-faring adventure will be available from April 1.
