When we first met Han Solo we got used to seeing him blow TIE fighters into dust, well now we finally get our chance to see the to-be rebel flying one! Thanks to the Walter Cronkite of Star Wars, Anthony Breznican, we get our first look at the deleted scene “Han Solo: Imperial Cadet” from the upcoming home video release of Solo: A Star Wars Story. Check out the video below.
In an article he wrote at Entertainment Weekly, Breznican breaks down the cut clip which has Han Solo disobeying his Imperial orders – opting to crash land his TIE fighter. The commodore quite simply sums up Han Solo as a character in their exchange.
COMMODORE: I still can’t decide if you’re brave or stupid.
HAN SOLO: I like to think I’m a little of both.
Check out the scene titled “Han Solo: Imperial Cadet” below:
While the scene was not imperative, and an understandable cut by Ron Howard, it is awesome we get a chance to see Han Solo as an Imperial pilot, flying a TIE fighter, followed by being his typical rebellious snarky self to a snooty Imperial officer!
Solo: A Star Wars Story will be available for purchase on digital in two days on September 14th, and the 4K/Blu-ray physical copies will be available on September 25th.
