Some new information has been revealed as to how many deleted scenes will be included in the Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens Blu-ray. Fans will be happy to know there will be a generous amount.
Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens’ editors, Mary Jo Markey and Maryann Brandon, were interviewed by The Independent where they revealed more about the deleted scenes that will be included in the Blu-ray release of the movie.
They said: “We have been talking about [the deleted scenes],” Brandon began. “But Disney has mentioned to us that – since they’re going to be on the DVD treats for viewers – that we should stop talking about them.”
When pressed a little further, the Oscar-nominee said: “There aren’t a lot. There’s one with Harrison Ford, there’s one with Rey, but there aren’t a lot.
“I think there are maybe seven or eight,” added Markey. “I don’t know if that’s a lot. I remember looking at the reel. Actually, I think there are seven.”
The reason why the scenes were deleted was because J.J. Abrams strictly wanted the movie to be just over two hours long. This is also a decree that Disney enforced as well. They didn’t want the movie to be too long.
