Deleted Scenes Coming For ‘The Force Awakens’ | Film News
It has been confirmed that there will be no extended cut for The Force Awakens when it is released on Blu-Ray and DVD. A good thing too, I don’t think I could stand to see the whole original trilogy replay in front of me in one movie. However, despite fans not being treated to an extra serving of J.J. Abrams‘ vision, there will be little nuggets on offer in the form of deleted scenes, and there is nothing a fan likes more than a deleted scene: a snippet of what could have been, like when General Grievous killed Shaak Ti in a deleted scene for Revenge of the Sith.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, J.J. Abrams spoke about what we could expect from the Blu-Ray and DVD releases: “There will be deleted scenes, but not an extended version. With credits, the first cut was close to two hours and 50 minutes.” On the deleted scenes, the director had this to say: “There’s a shot where Kylo Ren turns on his lightsaber, which was not in the movie, there were a bunch of things we ended up not using.”
Not much, no, but I would hazard a guess that there will be a bit more than that. As long as there isn’t a deleted scene with Jar Jar Binks I think fans will be fine. There is no release date set as of yet, but Star Wars: The Force Awakens is available for pre-order.
