Force Awakens Deleted Scenes Teaser Features Kylo Ren on the Millennium Falcon
Because even deleted scenes get teasers now.
Because we live in a world where even trailers get their own teasers, we now have a teaser for the deleted scenes section of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-Rey. This teaser is an interesting mix of scenes that are both eyebrow-raising (Kylo Ren in the Millennium Falcon, whaaaat) and somehow nostalgia-inducing (Harrison Ford in a stone-lined hallway is just so Indiana Jones).
Of note in these deleted scenes are the two that I’ve already mentioned–Kylo Ren on the Millennium Falcon and Han Solo with Maz Kanata and Finn at Takodana. The former raises an interesting question: if Kylo Ren was on the Millennium Falcon, why didn’t he disable the engine or hyperdrive? He seems pretty angry. If there was ever a good time and place for him to throw one of his patented lightsaber tantrums, it was then and there.
As for the latter, it seems like we might have missed out on a battle scene between Han Solo, Finn, some Stormtroopers, and freakin’ Maz Kanata. They’ve got Stormtroopers storming (heh) down the stone steps to the basement where Rey found her Blu lightsaber, only to (apparently) find Han, Finn, and Maz. How they escaped, I guess we’ll never know.
Also of note is an extended scene showing Finn being examined in the Resistance base after Rey and Chewie return from the Battle of Starkiller Base.
If you just can’t wait until April 1st (digital download) or April 5th (Blu-Rey), then this teaser is worth checking out. This comes hot on the heels of the news that a rip of the Force Awakens Blu-Rey hit pirating sites late Tuesday night. As I mentioned when we shared the story, I don’t believe that leak will impact sales of the Blu-Rey too much because of the extras that go into purchasing a copy; extras like the ones featured in this here deleted scenes teaser.
Often times, movie studios place a lot of focus on these extras in order to combat pirating, dedicating a lot of time and energy to special features in order to drive up sales. All that being said, only time will tell whether the deleted scenes and special features were enough to offset the illegal downloads.
Also, say it with me: Blu-Rey. Blu-Rey, Blu-Rey, Blu-Rey.
