With Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm are releasing Star Wars: The Force Awakens available digitally on April 1 and on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on April 5 in the US and April 18 in the UK.

Directed by J.J. Abrams, written by Lawrence Kasdan & J.J. Abrams and Michael Arndt, and produced by Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk, Star Wars: The Force Awakens was named one of AFI’s top ten films of 2015 and received five Academy Award nominations, for film editing, visual effects, sound editing, sound mixing, and for series composer John Williams’ original score.

Rogue One, which is set before Star Wars: A New Hope, hits cinemas on December 16, 2016. Star Wars: Episode VIII will be with us on December 15, 2017.

EW have revealed several Force Awakens deleted scenes photos. Most of the deleted scenes from The Force Awakens don’t radically change the story, but each deepens the characters in some way. For example, in one deleted scene we see Finn and Rey hijacking a First Order snowspeeder for a desperate escape from the depths of Starkiller Base. How did they get from the interior of the base to that snowy woodland fight with Kylo Ren? This sequence will connect the plot points.

EW also had some info about the other scenes.

Check them out below along with a new teaser trailer.

John Boyega’s FN-2187 hasn’t yet fled from the First Order, but he’s already a lost person. This shot is from before the troopers round up the villagers but after his mask is marked with the blood of a fallen fellow soldier. The conscience-stricken Finn comes face-to-face with a woman in the shadows of a small building. He raises his weapon ... and makes a fateful decision.

When the First Order attacks the castle run by Lupita Nyong’o’s Maz Kanata, Han, Finn, and Chewie face down this squad of stormtroopers in her basement. Han does his usual stellar job talking his way out of trouble. For those craving a little more of Solo's smart-ass swagger, this moment will make you say: "I love you ..."

Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) leads a squad of stormtroopers to the crash-site of the Millennium Falcon on the surface of Starkiller Base. Inspecting the abandoned starship stirs bittersweet memories for the Dark Side acolyte, who is still battling the pull to the light side ... and now knows his estranged father is conspiring against him.

Another deleted sequence would have introduced Carrie Fisher's General Leia much earlier in the film as she weighs what to do after the First Order's massacre on Jakku. Emun Elliott, best known for playing Moray on the British series The Paradise and Marillion in Game of Thrones, also gets a moment to shine as the Resistance communications officer Major Brance, who receives an early distress signal from BB-8 informing them of the attack.

Oscar Isaac also makes an appearance in a deleted sequence called "X-Wings Prepare for Lightspeed," which features his hotshot pilot Poe Dameron (seen here in a file photo) leading a squadron of Resistance fighters into an assault on Starkiller base. Most of the aerial battles in The Force Awakens took place within the atmosphere of planets, and this would have provided a moment when we get to see a large group of starships actually among the stars.

  1. Why not just have an extended version? I get why certain scenes are cut to reduce the running time but surely it makes sense to release an extended cut if it makes the film more coherent or improves the flow. Plus we get more Star Wars.

    • True, but I think that takes a lot more to do. Inserting the scenes, recoding the whole thing etc. Would be great though
