USA Today Life has revealed a deleted scene from Solo: A Star Wars Story, which will be available as part of the home release of the film later this month — Digital, September 14, DVD/Blu-ray, September 25. The scene, “Corellian Foot Chase,” shows Han (Alden Ehrenreich) and Qi’ra (Emilia Clarke) on the run from Moloch and his goons through the streets of Corellia, and looking for a place to hide.
Check out the deleted scene below:
In the sequence, the pair is fleeing with stolen bit of precious coaxium, trying to avoid some bad guys and their snarling Corellian hounds. In an effort to hide, Qi’ra insists that they jump into a vat filled with squirming, eel-like creatures – a throwback (or foreshadowing, depending on how you look at it) to Carrie Fisher’s Leia forcing Harrison Ford’s older Solo into a garbage compactor in the original “Star Wars.”
Young Han tries to make the most of the closeness, but so does a frisky eel that he has to quickly fish out of his pants. True, later he’ll get frozen in carbonite, but having a weird animal down south like that when you’re trying to woo a lady friend is pretty bad, too.
