There will be 14 deleted scenes released as part of the home entertainment rollout for the film, some of them curiosities, others adding new layers to the characters and their motivations.
EW has an exclusive preview of that footage, as well as an interview with writer-director Rian Johnson in advance of the film’s download release on March 13 (available in both HD and 4K Ultra HD, and by way of Disney’s Movies Anywhere app) and its March 27 Blu-ray debut.
“I love each one of the scenes individually. I mean, every single one of them was not cut because it didn’t work. It was cut because the movie as a whole was better without it,” Johnson tells us. “So with each one of them, it’s that strange combination where it feels awful to cut it, but it feels good to cut it, because suddenly the pacing of a section of the movie feels much better, or suddenly the film is cleaner, or clearer, in many different ways.”
