When movies are are made, usually directors film too much footage which means many scenes will have to be edited out.

Well Star Wars: The Last Jedi could have been close to three hours long if all of the deleted scenes were kept in by director Rian Johnson.

We don't have to worry about not seeing the deleted scenes in Star Wars: The Last Jedi because Johnson plans to add them all in for the Blu-ray release of the movie coming sometime next year.

He revealed a few scenes that could be added during an interview he had with Collider recently.

Bear in mind, some minor spoilers for the movie will be discussed here. You can avoid reading the next paragraphs if you have yet to see the film for yourself.

Anyway, one of the scenes deleted involved Rose, Finn and DJ. It is an extended scene where the trio have to sneak their way through the Mega Star Destroyer without being seen by The First Order's Stormtroopers.

In the actual movie, this scene was cut down as Finn and Rose 'blended' in by posing as First Order officers instead.

It should be a fun scene to watch on Blu-ray since Finn and Rose have a lot of chemistry.

Another major scene cut from the theatrical release involves the characters of Rey and Luke Skywalker. Johnson did not want to give away too much about this scene, but described it as being very 'emotional'.

Lastly, some other deleted scenes were about Poe and Finn.

When Finn wakes up from his coma, Poe shows him around to get up to speed on what has been happening after he got knocked out at the end of The Force Awakens.

Anyway, Johnson promises that nearly every deleted scene will be included in the Blu-ray release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The total runtime for the deleted scenes is expected to be just over 20 minutes long.
