Collider’s Steven Weintraub sat down with The Last Jedi Director Rian Johnson to talk about the highly anticipated movie. Johnson revealed that the first cut of the movie was more than three hours long and also mentioned that they had a lot of very good scenes (actually whole sequences) deleted from the movie that we will most likely see on The Last Jedi Blu-ray/DVD in a few months time. The director also briefly touched on the new Star Wars trilogy that he will be creating from scratch.

It’s very exciting to know early on that The Last Jedi will have a director’s commentary track (revealed a few days ago by Rian himself) and deleted scenes. We were not that lucky to get these two together before with The Force Awakens and Rogue One.
