With the Blu-Ray and DVD releases of Star Wars: The Last Jedi just around the corner, and with those releases come just a little bit more Star Wars content. And of course they could not be released without some information from The Great Divider himself, Rian Johnson. The director recently spoke with Entertainment Weeklyand discussed the upcoming deleted scenes and the grueling task of deciding what gets cut and what stays in the film:

“I love each one of the scenes individually. I mean, every single one of them was not cut because it didn’t work. It was cut because the movie as a whole was better without it. So with each one of them, it’s that strange combination where it feels awful to cut it, but it feels good to cut it, because suddenly the pacing of a section of the movie feels much better, or suddenly the film is cleaner, or clearer, in many different ways.”

I make a lot of quips about Johnson and The Last Jedi, but I also understand how incredibly difficult it is to make a movie, and on top of that, a Star Wars movie. Flow and pacing can make or break a film and I imagine it’s not easy to cut a scene you really love, even if makes the film better overall.

The deleted scenes are described as follows:

  • Rey and the Raiders of Caretaker Village
  • A Different Phasma Showdown
  • Luke In Mourning
  • The Supremacy Infiltration
  • BB-8 Reveals Rey’s Goodbye.

I can’t wait to watch these scenes, mostly so I can say something like, “Ugh, why didn’t you leave that in the film?”

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be available for digital download on March, 13, and will come to Blu-Ray March 27.
