Star Wars: The Force Awakens Deleted Scene Reveals Arm-Ripping Chewbacca
"I'm not afraid of you!"
Although the initial release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens contained several deleted scenes amongst its extras, there were even more included on the 3D Blu-ray/DVD set that was released last month. One of these sees Chewbacca deal some rough justice to the villainous Unkar Plutt. A shorter version of the scene was revealed in October, but now the full version has made its way online. Check it out below:
Plutt is played by Simon Pegg, star of the Star Trek and Mission: Impossible series, and he is the junk dealer who caused Rey (Daisy Ridley) no end of trouble on the planet Jakku. In the final cut of the film he is not seen again once Rey and Finn (John Boyega) leave the planet, but as this scene reveals, he had one final, unpleasant encounter with them.
Ridley and Boyega will return for Star Wars Episode VIII, which hits theaters in December. Director Rian Johnson recently revealed that he has known the full title of the movie for more than two years. "It was in the very first draft I wrote," he teased. "When will we learn it? All in good time."
The director also confirmed that the film opens immediately after The Force Awakens, and that the bond between two major characters will be an important part of the film. Additionally, Kylo Ren actor Adam Driver has shared some insight into his character and how he's evolved for Episode VIII.
Star Wars Episode VIII is released on December 15, 2017.
