Rian Johnson tells Collider about some of The Last Jedi’s deleted scenes, including a chunk from Rose and Finn’s storyline, and another featuring Rey and Luke. He says all the major ones will be on the Blu-ray. (I’m just guessing re: the photo above, but hey… We didn’t see that in the movie, did we?)
With The Phantom Menace 3D out this weekend, Entertainment Weekly checked in with the man behind Jar Jar Binks, Ahmed Best, who gave his thoughts on the Gungan’s diminished role in Episode III. Best also mentioned a scene cut filmed but cut from the finished version of Revenge of the Sith where Supreme Chancellor Palpatine takes a walk with Representative Binks:
“And Palpatine kind of thanks Jar Jar for putting him in power. It’s a really interesting scene, and it shows the evolution of Jar Jar from this fun-loving kid’s character into this manipulated politician. And it was an interesting arc for the character that I thought could have been explored, because the scene is really dark. But it just didn’t fit in the movie, which I understand. But yeah, George’s take on it is Jar Jar is now just a politician.”
Entertainment Weekly has footage from an extended version of Han and Leia’s corridor scene on Hoth..
