Following the still images of The Force Awakens deleted scenes that released yesterday, Disney has dropped a new teaser trailer to get Star Wars fans even more geeked for next week’s Episode VII Blu-ray release.
In addition to plenty of other bonus features, The Force Awakens Blu-ray will include a bunch of deleted scenes from the blockbuster film. The list of scenes that didn’t make the final cut of the film include “Kylo Searches The Falcon,” “Finn and the Villager,” “X-Wings Prepare for Lightspeed,” “Snow Speeder Chase,” “Jakku Message” and “Finn Will Be Fine.”
One specific deleted scene “Tunnel Standoff” is previewed in the trailer and shows a legion of stormtroopers zeroing in on Han Solo and company. This scene is a digital exclusive, meaning fans will have to either buy the Digital HD version or redeem the digital download code from the Blu-ray DVD.
Deleted scenes aren’t the only bonus material we get a sneak peek of in The Force Awakens‘ Blu-ray trailer. There’s also a glimpse of behind-the-scenes testimonials from the cast and crew about their experiences on set and what being a part of the Star Wars universe means to them on a personal level. Among those providing commentary are director J.J. Abrams and stars Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, and Gwendoline Christie. Hopefully, we can also expect to see some more footage about how cast members like Andy Serkis and Lupita Nyong’o transformed into CG characters, and perhaps even meet some of the characters that were cut from the final version of the film.
The Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-ray releases April 5, preceded by the release of the Digital HD version on April 1.io9]
