J.J. Abrams Teases More Deleted Scenes from Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the Future!

JJ. AbramsA few months ago while speaking to Collider, J.J. Abrams revealed that The Force Awakens had at least a dozen deleted scenes, which running time was around ten to twenty minutes. After the Blu-ray was released 10 days ago, many fans noticed that the release had only a few scenes withthe total running time of less than 4 minutes. Now Collider caught up with Abrams at CinemaCon and decided to follow up with The Force Awakens director about the deleted scenes…

 

 

From Collider:

 

When asked if there are any more deleted scenes on the way, Abrams replied:

J.J. ABRAMS: I think there are going to be some more that are going to be available online, but I don’t know when that’s going to happen. But there are some others.

SIMON PEGG: Most of them feature me, funnily enough. There’s a whole story featuring Unkar. Like him opening his shop—

ABRAMS: There is, actually.

 

Did Disney say “We’re going to have an ultimate box set and we want to save five minutes for that box set after Episode 9?”

ABRAMS: No, Disney’s been amazing. There’s been no nefarious or weird, “Let’s hold things back for the fans,” but there will be other deleted scenes that will be available for those who wish to see them.

You probably remember at least several scenes that we know exist and were not included in the Blu-ray release. One such scene is Unkar Plutt appearing in Maz Kanata’s castle.

 

Unkar Plutt On Takodana

 

As you know The Force Awakens 3D Blu-ray will be released later this year. Probably we will have some extra deleted scenes for this release, or maybe they will save it for the box release after Episode IX?

    In other words they haven’t finished milking this cow yet…

    • Did you read where he said it will be available online?

      • Crixxxx

        Probably available with some online purchase.

        • …and up on YouTube within a day like the ones from the Blu-ray are.

          • Crixxxx

            Lucasfilm has been doing this for years. They figure out a way to get people to buy the same movie 15 times by throwing in some extra bells and whistles with each successive release.

              It’s a Jewish thing and it usually ends up bringing a lot of ire and strife to their door. It’s happened many times, over many centuries, in many places.

                …AAAAAAND GOODBYE ANTI-SEMITE TROLL!!!

            • Kicker2

              As if they are the only company that does it. It’s in business to make money.

            • Mr_Crankypants

              However, I can’t point to a worse collection of extras on a first release of any SW movie. This is some pro-quality trolling from Disney.

              • Kicker2

                I remember when we didn’t have any extras and we had a videotape that would wear out and sometimes be eaten by the players, and that we still had to pay 15 to 20 dollars for them. (In 1990 or prior dollars, which had the value that 30 dollars does now.) So to me, it all looks good.

    • Kicker2

      Maybe they will put them online for people whom have already bought the Blu-Ray/digital copy

    • obijuanmartinez

      But the sorta-neat bit w/ Unkar showing up @ Maz’s palace (they kept it in the film novel) is that you find out the Imperial tracker (used to follow the Rebels back to Yavin from Death Star I) was still attached & active!

      • By Whedon’s Lisp!

        Really Han Solo is so stupid he never took the tracker off? And then the empire forgot in esb and had to hire the bounty hunters? Nah, good thing they deleted it.

    • Kicker2

      You act as if every popular movie doesn’t do this.

  • Mongo the pawn

    Even Stevie Wonder saw this coming!

  • Crixxxx

    It’s classic Lucasfilm marketing to bait fans into buying the same movie 15 times with extra bells and whistles with each successive release. That’s exactly what will happen with TFA.

    • ZOD

      Or… Each release has a schedule & a budget. They include as much stuff as they have time/money for. Each new release gets whatever new stuff the new budget/schedule allows. For the most part, Disney holds their home video rereleases to format changes (VHS, DVD, BR & etc.) Lucasfilm is a little worse, but not that much, not really. There are lots of reasons (rights, cost of remastering, space) that old stuff doesn’t make it to new releases along with the new content.
      FWIW, my personal pet peeve is all the variations caused by “exclusive” versions. Basically, a store will kick in some money to get extra content that no one else has. That can make it difficult to buy a 100% complete version.

      • Rabo Karabekian

        It’s all a money grab. They did it with the OT for 15 years. They will have a new box and “new” featurette every year in the spring after a film came out and again every year in the fall before Christmas. The multi-retailer thing is annoying, but they get shameless once fans have purchased it once. I predict they will have a “what if Luke had been in the movie” featurette in a year or two. As soon as I saw the concept art of an aged, samurai-ish, yet active and engaged Luke (with lightsaber), I do they were going to explore they’re wimping out on including Luke in TFA in a future DVD extra.

  • Spartacus111

    Chewie ripping off arms, please….

  • I was very disappointed with the deleted scenes that were released so far. Only the Kylo Ren on the Falcon scene was stand out good. The Maz’s basement one was interesting in that… holy crap I’m glad they took it out.

    Where was Kor Sella, Chancellor Villecham and the rest of the Republic? Where was Maz using the Force?

    So long as we’re not looking at a long tail of ever more feature packed re-relases (and JJ seems to be saying that’s not the case) then I’ll be interested to see these when they surface.

    • Kicker2

      Disappointed? That’s why they are deleted scenes. I did like Han’s Solo’s “what makes him supreme?” quip.

      • Disappointed that they were short and kind of nothing scenes. I felt like there were some reasonably meaty scenes that got cut for time and we didn’t get any of those.

    • By Whedon’s Lisp!

      Glad they took out Maz using the Force. It would be confusing. I like her just having been around long enough to know about the Jedi and the Force, I don’t feel the movie explained the whole her having Force powers but not being a Jedi thing well enough.

      • Oh, it may well have been the right decision to take it out. I’d like to see it out of curiosity.

  • DEKKA129

    Well, seeing as how the original cut of the movie was rumored to be 20-30 minutes longer than the final cut, and seeing as how we got maybe five minutes worth of deleted scenes with the blu-ray… yeah, I’d say there’s probably still quite a bit of deleted footage there that we haven’t seen.

    Given how hard they marketed Captain Phasma, with her ending up barely being in the final cut of the movie, I assume there are at least a couple of cut scenes with her.

    • fizznick

      There actually was ONE shot of them fighting back, but the guy gets shot pretty quick by a trooper. I think it’s right before Han and Chewie come out from under the rubble.

    • Tuareg Mahoma

      Well, in the first place – have anyone seen one single ship around Maz Kanata´s castle? :-) Not counting thhe Falcon, of course. Zero starship. No No landing platforms whatsoever. No bartenders to be seen anywhere, all of them sitting inside, no one going in or out….when Han and co. ariived, it was like a deserted place. I still didn´t understand it. If there´s a famous smuggler planet with an even more famous place of smugglers queen, and if the bar is full, where is the starport and the life around the Castle????

      • thx1139

        Actually when Han and co. first land and they are outside the falcon if you look through the woods you will see other ships.

      • Mr_Crankypants

        There are landing pads visible when the Falcon touches down.

      • By Whedon’s Lisp!

        I agree it did look a little deserted… but if you recall Finn was going to board one of the other ships before Hosnian Prime was blown up. Still should have been Coruscant… but anyway, I do think the locations in Force Awakens were rather weak. One thing about Lucas, he always gave us cool new ships and planets. JJ just kind of recycled everything. Still love the movie.

        • TonJon

          Why should it be Corusant? I don’t get that logic.

          • By Whedon’s Lisp!

            Because that was the seat of the senate and the capital of the republic and it makes sense and ties the movie back to the prequels.

        • TUD

          Ugh, anything but Coruscant. Or Naboo. Or anything that reminds me of trade negotiations.

          • By Whedon’s Lisp!

            Hate to break it to you but they ain’t making the movies for you. You’re not one of those let’s pretend the prequels don’t exist people are you? Those people are the worst “fans”.

            • TUD

              1. They’re not making movies for YOU either, so you can drop it.

              2. No, I don’t pretend that the prequels don’t exist. I just hate them, that’s all.

              3. “Fans” does not belong in quotations. You don’t have to love every single Star Wars movie in order to be a fan of the franchise.

              • By Whedon’s Lisp!

                No but the bitching gets old… Especially about the prequels.

                • TUD

                  And defending the prequels endlessly gets old as well. Touche.

                  • By Whedon’s Lisp!

                    See the difference is you were doing the thing I said you were, whereas I was not doing the thing you accuse of being old. And since the haters tend to be more loud and obnoxious, I actually find the so called defenders to be refreshing. At least they have a mind to think of their own. The prequels are neither all good nor all bad.
                    There are some really great things that came out of them, even if they aren’t what the “fans” wanted them to be.

                    • TUD

                      No, not “fans”. Fans. You don’t have to love everything that comes out of a franchise in order to be a fan out of it. The prequels are abortions put to the film, and I hate them, but I love Star Wars.

                    • By Whedon’s Lisp!

                      See when you hate 50% of something that just makes you a hater. The prequels ARE Star Wars get over it.

                    • TUD

                      The prequels are abortions put to film. In case you haven’t realized, the prequels are nearly 50% of star Wars FILMS. There’s a whole canon out there of wonderful books and TV shows that are higher quality and more entertaining than the prequels. I’m only a hater if the thing I hate doesn’t deserve to be hated. By the way, I hate sand.

                    • By Whedon’s Lisp!

                      You need to work on your issues bud. It’s not healthy.

                    • TUD

                      It’s a Star Wars site. I exaggerate my grievances.

                    • By Whedon’s Lisp!

                      Lucky for us. You do realize this forum isn’t a substitute for a good head shrink.

                • Concealed Courier

                  Oh no it doesn’t Tinkerbell. It NEVER gets old.

                  • By Whedon’s Lisp!

                    Figures a bitch like you would never tire of bitching.

                    • Concealed Courier

                      Better look in the mirror when you say that, tink.

                    • By Whedon’s Lisp!

                      Good one, prancer.

    • The Original Drew #BAEROD

      There is the stuff where Maz gives the lightsaber to Leia. I am sure they shot all of that. A bunch of stuff from the teasers and trailers not showing up as well.

      • Mr_Crankypants

        Abrams has already said that originally Maz goes with them to the Resistance base, but that it left her nothing to do once there.

      • TUD

        The VFX were even finished, at least for the scene with Maz and Leia talking.

  • Jonipoon

    Just give us the damn Senate scene with the politicians on Hosnian Prime.

    • TUD

      I’d bet that none were even in the script to begin with. Can’t be too prequel-y.

      • By Whedon’s Lisp!

        It was and I believe it was filmed. Leia sends her assistance there to drum up more support for the resistance.

        • Jedi John

          Oh it sounds worth watching….NOT!

          • Mr_Crankypants

            Right, because then we might have some fucking clue what that planet is, who those people are, and why anyone should care.

            • TUD

              Then again, we know about as much about it as we did about Alderaan in Episode IV. The real difference is that no character has a real attachment to it in VII.

              • By Whedon’s Lisp!

                Exactly which is why they should have used coruscant.

                • TUD

                  No character would have had a connection to it, but I guess a few fans would recognize it.

                  • By Whedon’s Lisp!

                    It’s also recognized as the capital of the republic and I think most moviegoers not just fans would recognize it since it was so heavy in the prequels. Again most people assumed it was Cor.

                    • TUD

                      MOST people didn’t actually give a fuck to be completely honest. The important planet was blown up by the bad guys. There’s not much more that they feel they need to understand.

                    • By Whedon’s Lisp!

                      So then if most people don’t care – which I’m not sure when you got the authority to speak for so many but anyway – why not make it cor and please the ones who do? Based on this discussion alone it actually seems like MOST people would have liked that.
                      And now you’re just trying to argue for arguements sake but you’re not very good at it.

                    • TUD

                      From Disney’s perspective, making it Coruscant would be a bad decision, as they’re trying to move away from the PT era, which at the time of TFA is literally over 50 years in the past. You’re trying to shut down people that argue against you but you’re not very good at it.

                    • By Whedon’s Lisp!

                      I don’t know about people but I sure am shutting you down on a regular basis turd. Now if only I could get you to crawl back into your dungeon and shut up.

                      See if Disney truly wanted to give a big F you to the prequels they should have just blown up cor. But see that would be too logical for you.

                      And actually it’s only 30 years in the past since it was still the seat of power at the end of Jedi.

                      Btw I love that you know so much about Disney even though they literally put out a prequel comic today about obiwan and Anakin. That’s odd for a company trying to distance themselves from the prequels. I agree there is a push to differentiate themselves from the prequels, but it’s hardly the actions of a company that wants to distance themselves from the pt by putting out a pt comic.

                    • TUD

                      Yes, because anyone who disagrees with you is a turd. Nice. That’s gonna get you real far in life, fella’. You need to grow some thicker skin.

                    • By Whedon’s Lisp!

                      Nope I’m game for logical disagreements from intelligent people whom I respect. I like to be challenged and think it’s cool if someone can change my mind on something with evidence and a well supported position.

                      And that was a typo cause your name is tud. But I think turd is more fitting. Ha!

                    • TUD

                      “Nope I’m game for logical disagreements”

                      Obviously not.

                    • By Whedon’s Lisp!

                      See but your disagreements aren’t logical. I guess that went over your head as usual.

                    • TUD

                      “I think that Coruscant didn’t need to be in Episode VII because Disney doesn’t want the prequels associated with their new movies.”

                      Real illogical. Definitely.

                    • By Whedon’s Lisp!

                      “From Disney’s perspective, making it Coruscant would be a bad decision, as they’re trying to move away from the PT era, which at the time of TFA is literally over 50 years in the past.”

                      I like how you think that’s what Disney wants based on 1 movie. We have yet to see episode 8 or 9. And for all we know that was jj not Disney. The PT made a ton of money and we already know Disney likes money. If it wasn’t for the pt being so successful they wouldn’t have bought lucasfilm. And as I’ve mentioned before they are still releasing prequel material all the time.

                      So yeah it is illogical to think that Disney wants to move away from the prequels when they clearly aren’t making that move. Even in tfa there were references to the pt like the clone army and the sith. It is 50 years later and the Jedi are pretty much dead so i wouldn’t expect a billion references. Even the OT didn’t have that many so it’s in line with that.

                    • TUD

                      It’s what Disney wants based on all of their marketing and brand synergy. Notice they cancelled Clone Wars. Disney knows that money comes from making good movies, and the PT have a terrible stigma within the fan community. It’s like putting a Gungan in the movie. No one wants to be reminded of the prequels, and Disney knows it.

                    • By Whedon’s Lisp!

                      That makes no sense. of course they aren’t marketing the prequels heavily they are over. Any more than they are marketing empire strikes back. Now don’t get your panties in a bunch there’s a move to tie the new trilogy back to the ot but that sounds like jj more than Disney.

                      But what makes you dumb is that Disney cancelled the clone wars because it aired on Cartoon Network and Disney would have had to pay royalties to them rather than be allowed to have it on their own network. Heck even after Disney cancelled it they put it on Netflix, released a bonus season, as well as a comic and novel spin off and soon we have an Ashoka novel coming. Not to mention new action figures and heavy clone wars tie ins on rebels. Also in case you have been spending too much time in your troll cave darth Mail has been all over the news lately for his big comeback in rebels.

                      And further I already demonstrated to you the references to the prequels in TFA… Do you not know how to read? Finally, you can’t stop pretending you speak for everyone “no one wants to be reminded of the prequels” … You can barely speak for yourself. Just crawl back into your cave already.

                    • TUD

                      Notice that all of those TCW characters have been moved into the OT era. Also, Battlefront takes place in the OT as well. You can deny it all you want, but Disney has little interest in the PT era as of now. And by the way, everyone knows the Sith. Everyone knew about them in the Ot despite not being named in those movies. And the reference to a clone army was supposed to be an expository line that explained That the First Order had stopped the use of Clones. If they didn’t have to out that in there, they wouldn’t have.

                    • By Whedon’s Lisp!

                      Way to contradict yourself turd. Those characters are in the OT era because the Rebels takes place in the OT era… which you could argue being 5 years before ANH is actually pre-OT era. They are still PT CHARACTERS. They still refer back to the PT. When people think of Darth Maul, they think of the PT.

                      Your basing Disney’s interest in the PT based on a video game? Well, by that logic then, why did they release the big Star Wars Disney infinity game around the PT? That was the first release they did with an Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka toy? It was called Twilight of the Jedi. (Can’t wait to see your excuse for that one). Not to mention, as I already mentioned, a brand new comic book starring Anakin and Obi-wan, set after Phantom Menace. And the forthcoming Ahsoka backstory novel.

                      Oh, and because the line in TFA about the clone army was expository, it didn’t count? Ummm… ok? Actually, they didn’t need it in there, there was no clone army talk in OT. And further, you don’t know why or why it wasn’t in there. Only the writers know, so stop talking like you have any clue as to the intention of the movie or the writers.

                      And hardly anybody knew about the Sith until the PT… aside from the more than casual fan. Vader and the Emperor were never called Sith in the OT movies. The PT told us Vader and the Emperor were Sith and fleshed out what the Sith were and who they were… in canon.

                      Look, you can deny evidence all you want, just makes you look like a big fat moron.

        • obijuanmartinez

          They kept those bits in the film novelization as well…Leia’s aide / flunkie / Red Shirt “Sella” has a few scenes

        • TUD

          I believe that that scene is the one from the novelization. Sella and Leia are on the Resistance base, and they talk. We don’t see Korr Sella go back to Hosnian Prime.

  • ZOD

    Or… Each release has a schedule & a budget. They include as much stuff as they have time/money for. Each new release gets whatever new stuff the new budget/schedule allows. For the most part, Disney holds their home video rereleases to format changes (VHS, DVD, BR & etc.) Lucasfilm is a little worse, but not that much, not really.

  • patriot8813

    Of course its being held back for the double dip. And yes, there probably will be an extended edition at some point. Its 2016 and Disney wants money. Like most companies they will do multiple home releases.

      Take one dip and end it!

    I think some of the deleted scenes that were included were shortened too. The speeder chase for example- we never see them getting in the speeder or where it came from. Then the ‘standoff’ scene, Maz is supposed to make the ceiling collapse but it cuts short of that. I recall JJ Abrams in an interview before release saying there was something like 25 minutes of deleted scenes but there are, what about 7 minutes on the blueray? I’m sure this is intentional as a money spinner.

    However, I won’t be re-buying because the deleted scenes will all be on youtube as soon as someone can upload them… which is how I’ve had to see the deleted scenes so far since the blueray isn’t realsed in the UK until Monday. (imagine my wrath when I went to pick it up last week to find I was 2 weeks early!)

    • Yeah I felt completely ripped off by the deleted scenes… when I got the disc I called my stepdaughter in the room to watch & when we were done we were like “that was it?!?”

      The special effects were awful too! The only cool one was seeing Kylo board the falcon.

      • Mr_Crankypants

        What, you didn’t like “You’re friend will be fine.”? That scene was moving, epic – young actors will be performing it in auditions for years to come.

        • I don’t remember that scene, what happened?

          • Mr_Crankypants

            In the underground resistance command center, a medic turns to Rey and says the immortal line “You’re friend will be fine” and then…well, that’s like, literally it really. The “scene” ends.

            • TUD

              And that woman’s performance was pretty creepy in that scene tbh.

              • Mr_Crankypants

                Yeah, it was almost like there was some context she had come up with in her head that just had noooooothing to do with the scene she was in. Deleted, and should have STAYED deleted.

                • Kicker2

                  She just stared too long, That was Christopher Lee’s niece.

      • Kicker2

        Because they didn’t finish the effects on the deleted scenes.

        • Wasn’t it said these shots were removed at the last second of editing? I was just expecting them to be finished based on what JJ said, seeing as how the VFX seemed to have been worked out a long time ago (based on the trailers)

          • Kicker2

            I don’t know when they were removed but they weren’t in there when Daniel Fleetwood saw the movie 6 weeks before the movie was released, I know this via his widow who saw it with him. The only thing was in there that ended up being cut was more dialogue between Leia and Rey right before Rey left to go to Luke at the end, stuff the novel covers.

      • TUD

        The SFX were fine other than for the snowspeeder chase. My big problem was having the time code in the corner of the shot. How long does it REALLY take to get rid of that?

        • Mr_Crankypants

          It’s intentionally marring the video so it can’t be used for anything.

    • Mr_Crankypants

      I was shocked that the one under Maz’s castle, frankly the best of the deleted scenes so far, wasn’t on the disc.

  • Clone11038

    I guess I’ll see them if I decide to rebuy the trilogy when episode IX comes out

  • The Original Drew #BAEROD

    This is why I am waiting on the 3D blu ray to come out. Obvious stuff being held out is obvious.

    • Mr_Crankypants

      But, but, JJ said Disney wasn’t deliberately holding back!

      • The Original Drew #BAEROD

        Coming August 1st. Star Wars: The Force Awakens 3D Blu-Ray! With never before seen deleted scenes and special features. Pre-Order your copy today!

        • Mr_Crankypants

          On a 3D release? I can’t see it. There’s simply not been enough buy-in from consumers on 3D to make it a good format to launch that stuff. Me, I’m holding out for the ultimate edition November 2016 with exclusive sneak peak at Rogue One.

          • Kicker2

            Why do they put out movies that are less popular than SW out on 3D blu?

            • Mr_Crankypants

              Because there IS still a market. I just can’t see 3D being a big enough install base to launch something like otherwise unavailable Star Wars special features. You want to use that as weapon to sell as many units as possible, so I’d think you put it on the next standard release.

      • Sarcasm, yes?

        • Mr_Crankypants

          NO!
          Wait…was THAT sarcasm? Dammit, now I don’t even know anymore.

  • Concealed Courier

    JJ, how about you cut this deleted scene BS and put this stuff back in the movie where it belongs. I bought the deluxe, I’ve seen the scenes; there is NO reason to keep this stuff out of the movie. None. I’ve heard the flow argument and frankly it doesn’t hold weight. I know the real reason you cut this film from 3 hours JJ was that mickey mouse wanted more asses in the seats. Fine. Now, give us the extended cut and stop pretending this 80% complete film you’ve screened to us is the true finished product. I know better. This film is awesome and no extended cut is a true disservice to the film.

    • BillyGar

      I am absolutely happy we won’t see a “director’s cut”… Movies are one way, not many. 3 hours??? The only reason they cut it from 3 hours to the final length is because no other SW film was that long or needed to be that long. All movies have double of it’s final length recorded and discard lots of it. You say there was no reason to remove them… For me the question is, did these scenes add anything to the story that was needed to tell? No? Then cut it. It is called edit and improves the overall rythm of the film if done correctly. And I think they done it right.

      • Concealed Courier

        WTF!? They DID add to the movie! I wouldn’t be saying 80% if they DIDN’T!!
        “It is called edit-” NO.. REALLY!? I SO DIDN”T KNOW THAT!!!

    • By Whedon’s Lisp!

      Couldn’t disagree more. Deleted scenes almost all the time get deleted for good reason and these scenes didn’t need to be in the movie.

      • Concealed Courier

        Never overestimate the logic of a hollywood film editor when it comes to Star Wars..

        • By Whedon’s Lisp!

          There was no need to see yoda arrive on dagobah in the movie. It’s cool that we see it as a deleted scene though.

          • Concealed Courier

            Then by that logic there’s no need for half of RotJ. Hell, half the OT for that matter.

            • By Whedon’s Lisp!

              I’m not arguing that there was (not arguing there wasn’t either). But the today “scene” you mention was literally more of a quick shot that did nothing to advance the plot. We needed to know that today was going into exile… The planet itself was unimportant and it was actually cooler to first see it in empire when Luke arrives… Like is this the right place?

              • Concealed Courier

                Now you’re just all over the damn place…

                      Wow two replies I must have really touched a nerve there tinker bell. youre a moron btw. Your argument is because in your opinion half the stuff in the ot was unnecessary, which I disagree with, that they should just continue that trend and should have put the yoda clip into rots? Oh yeah that makes a lot of sense.

                    • Concealed Courier

                      Oh, and.. really pathetic there with the tinker bell comeback. Show some originality next time. Tinker bell works on chumps like you because you can’t pick a god damn position. Not on people like me. Seriously you sound like the “bullcrap” girl from SNL; stop embarrassing yourself.
                      “Yoda arriving on Dagobah doesn’t add to the story.”

                      See, it’s real simple fairyboy. Both either add something to the story.. or they do not. This is what we call logic. You’re argument is that they are different. This is what we call stupid.

                      Han arriving in Cloud City was integral to the story. Yoda arriving on Dagobah was not. Very simply storytelling. How you can’t see that is beyond me.

                    You’d just get squished like like a bug if you did.

  • Snark Vader (alias Grant)

    Which comes as a surprise to no one ever! Look at how much money they made over the decades doing the same exact thing with the OT. Oddly enough they been pretty consistent with the PT and haven’t tried any double dipping tactics even though there are lost scenes which still haven’t been released in those.

  • Yoda McNasty

    I overheard that in one deleted scene, instead of Han being impaled by Kylo, it was actually Jar Jar. They opted to save his death for ep. IX. The deleted scenes will be a bonus on the ep. XVII hologram edition.

  • Mr_Crankypants

    Really? Wow, so it’s just a piss-poor release because it’s the best they could do? I mean, the film’s presentation is solid, but the disc menus are weak, and the extras are embarrassing.

  • By Whedon’s Lisp!

    The film itself looks beautiful but the lack of commentary is weak. the documentary was also disappointing, especially when compared to the phenominal documentary they included with the Episode 1 DVD.

    • Mr_Crankypants

      Yep, it was like Disney took their “THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF THE PREQUELS!!!!!” mania to the disc production – the film is a very faithful transfer, the extras were a massive, massive letdown.

    • Kicker2

      Cause people want 10 to 20 hours of extras anymore. Lot of stuff, like trailers u can find online.

      • By Whedon’s Lisp!

        In English please.

  • Kent Kaliber

    I WANT THE DELETED “VADER vs LUKE” SCENE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • TUD

      Yeah, we heard you the last 12 times you said that. Just a reminder. But for what it’s worth, I agree.

    • By Whedon’s Lisp!

      Don’t get your hopes up or start rumors… it wasn’t a scene just a brief shot of them fighting on the bespun platform during Rey’s vision.

  • No wonder since we knew that there are already some of them MISSING from the Blu-Ray release. Shame on you Disney.

  • Darth Mickey

    I’d like to see the full flashback scene, but I’m sure we’re not going to see it before ep.9 has been released

  • Vader the White

    Am I the only one pretty happy with the special features? I agree, I wish that more of the deleted scenes were on the Blu-Ray, but everything else was good for a standard release. Hell, I would actually say it was better than what the Complete Saga did. It had a good documentary and a bunch of cool, smaller features (including one on John Williams) and was easy to navigate. The Complete Saga, while technically had more, was oddly bare bones, mostly random interviews spread throughout and various prop, model, and costume galleries. And it’s selection of deleted scenes weren’t great either (I mean, I have more deleted scenes from Attack of the Clones on my VHS copy!). Combined with a lack of documentaries (other than old, vintage ones, which are a nice bonus) and topped with a terrible menu (I don’t want to navigate between planets!), The Force Awakens is a better release.

  • Rabo Karabekian

    I hate JJ. It didn’t happen overnight. He’s a greedy, dishonest, disingenuous, and smug SOB. Of course he found a way to do his usual unoriginal tripe as part of Lucasfilm’s latest money grab

    And it’s stuff like this that proves me right. There’s no reason to reveal this RIGHT AFTER THE BLURAY CAME OUT and the hardcore fans have already bought it. Oh, and he always acts like he’s doing fans a favor when he does crap like this smarmy comment.

    Don’t get me started on the powers that be making the 3-D release be later in the year….and there being different special features on the different “versions” at different retailers. Lucasfilm, Disney, KK, and JJ: p****** on your leg and telling you it’s raining, now and forever.

  • Rover’s Chocolate Log

    I really hope there’s no double dipping.

  • Bluemilk7

    we are the moofs being milked i tell you

  • adamclark83

    On the forum, I put up my own listing of what I would put as Blu-ray extras and that would last over 4 hours.

  • TUD

    So Disney didn’t stop him from putting in more deleted scenes, he just CHOSE to put a grand total of 4 minutes of said scenes. Sure….

    As much as I don’t want to admit it, Disney and Lucasfilm have their hands in our asses AND in our wallets. GET YOUR HANDS OUT OF OUR ASS WALLETS!

    • Peter

      MR. PLINKETT REFERENCE!!! YES!!

  • TUD

    The only excuse I could think of is that the VFX for these deleted sequences weren’t finished, but I’m pretty sure that most fans would be okay if the deleted scenes were unfinished or were mostly storyboards.

    • Mr_Crankypants

      I for one wasn’t watching for the VFX -I wanted to see bits of storytelling that was dropped for one reason or another.

  • Peter

    The scenes we got were almost insulting. Where were all the Constable Zuvio scenes? Or the Senate scenes? Or Maz Kanata going back to the castle with them all? Or the COMPLETE “Escape from the Castle Basement” sequence? What we got was pitiful. I wouldn’t even consider them deleted scenes… more like deleted shots (or scene fragments).

    • TUD

      I agree. Most of them were just pieces added on from other scenes that were left in the movie. I even recognized a hot in the final movie that would have transitioned into “Finn and the Villager”.

  • Martian Matt

    Slightly worrying info about what was cut, it appears in the rush they didn’t know where the story was going!

  • Jedi John

    OMG stop whinning. you got the freakin movie and that’s what matters! The extra’s are a bonus, be thankful you got any! As for the menus, Jesus why do people worry about menus. They just get in the way of the content you want to see, takes longer to navigate, just keep it simple I say.

    • Mr_Crankypants

      Right, well, tell you what – you get Disney to stop using bonus features as a selling point to push product, and then maybe you can expect people to stop complaining about how shitty they end up being. Oh, and let’s be clear – this IS product; nobody who pays good money for it owes Disney shit, let alone “thankfull”ness.

      • Jedi John

        Right of course its their fault. Its always someone else’s fault, never the consumer. Everyone has a choice. You don’t have to buy it, but of course your all weak and blame it on someone other than yourselves.

        • Kicker2

          It’s over 2 hours of extras added up. Plus all the free VFX stuff and trailers are all online now in HD. We get free stuff before even buying anything now. Not true 10 to 15 years ago or so.

  • Mr_Crankypants

    My biggest regret is that there doesn’t seem to be a way to delete Simon Pegg from everything, ever, except maybe for Shaun of the Dead.

    • Kicker2

      Figured you’d love Simon since he hates the prequels and has no respect for anyone who likes them.

  • OhBeeWand

    I’m guessing some of the “held back” deleted scenes may incorporate plot points that were moved to later movies …
