Just when you thought your interest in Star Wars: The Force Awakens was finally simmering down, Disney/Lucasfilm has issued a new teaser for the imminent Blu-ray/DVD that whets your appetite all over again with a glimpse of the deleted scenes we've been hearing about.
As Slashfilm points out, it took decades for Lucasfilm to reveal what was left out of the original Star Wars trilogy, so it's kind of a treat to get this stuff barely weeks (if even that) after the latest movie has left theaters.
Of course, we don't know just how compelling or interesting any of this deleted footage is -- after all, it was removed from the film, and surely director J.J. Abrams had his reasons -- but it will still be interesting to see some of the bits that didn't make the final cut, especially for diehard Star Wars fans.
A total of seven deleted scenes are being made available, and the titles are: “Finn and the Village,” “Jakku Message," “X-Wings Prepare for Lightspeed,” “Kylo Searches the Falcon,” “Snow Speeder Chase,” “Finn Will Be Fine” and “Tunnel Standoff." The latter will only be accessible when you download the digital copy of the film included with the Blu-ray. Do you think you can match the titles with the footage in the teaser below?
We know that this probably isn't all the deleted footage shot for the movie, but it should provide some sort of glimpse into the editing process and world-building that went into Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The Blu-ray and DVD arrive on April 5.
