New Things We Learned From the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-Ray – Part 3

• In a deleted, unfinished scene, Rey and Finn are chased across Starkiller Base in a snow speeder. Things aren’t going well, until Finn gives Rey the wheel and he gets the blaster.

72

73

• Originally, Poe Dameron was going to die in the script but Oscar Isaac asked that that be changed, so it was. (You can watch that clip here).

70

71

• Trimmed from the shot of Han returning the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon was him taking the legendary fuzzy dice out of his pocket and hanging them back up.

• Warwick Davis (who played Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi) plays the character Wollivan in Maz’s bar, but his daughter is also a character.

  • Maz Kanata’s character was so inspired by J.J. Abrams’ teacher, Rose Gilbert, that there were photos of her on set.

  • Lupita Nyong’o had 149 dots on her face to do Maz Kanata performance capture.

61

62

63

• Several famous people visited in the set. On the Blu-ray alone we see director Peter Jackson, Malala Yousafzai, Karl Urban, and also Simon Pegg (who played Unkar Plutt, but we knew that).

New Things We Learned From the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-Ray – Part 2

• The Dejarik (or holochess) game that Finn mistakenly turns on in the Millennium Falcon picks up immediately after the game played back in A New Hope. No one has played it since then!

• In a deleted scene from early in the movie, we learn that Finn’s mercy at the Jakku village extends beyond not just firing at the villagers. He ran into a young woman behind a hut, too, and let her go.

• In order to prep for all the running in the Jakku (or, really, Abu Dhabi) sand, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega rehearsed some scenes while running on a treadmill.

• Leia and the Resistance were alerted to the destruction of the Jakku village and, though Poe was missing, she figured out BB-8 had the map.

51

• Han seems to know Finn is lying about who he is immediately, but how ? A deleted scene that’s only on the digital downloads reveals that Han knew because Finn changed all his clothes except his boots, which are Stormtrooper issue. (The scene also explains how Finn lost the gun Han gave him).

• Most of the lightsaber fights were shot with props that looked very much like real lightsabers, but Han’s death was shot without a saber at all. It’s all CG.

New Things We Learned From the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-Ray – Part 1

  • “The Force Awakens” doesn’t just refer to Rey. It refers to Kylo Ren too. “This was not just ‘The Force Awakens’ in a young woman,” says the documentary. “It’s the dark side of The Force awakening in the villain.”

32

31

• Mark Hamill felt that Luke has “great reservations” when Rey finds him on Ahch-To. “He’s very conflicted,” the actor said. “We’ll have to wait and see [what happens].”

• When Andy Serkis performed as Supreme Leader Snoke, he stood on a ledge 25 feet above Adam Driver and Domhnall Gleeson.

33

34

• Though you get a brief sense of it in the movie, the documentary says that Kylo Ren felt abandoned as a child because his parents weren’t there when he was growing up. They were “absent on their own agendas,” and he felt “lost in the world he was raised in.” That’s part of why he was so angry and so open to Snoke’s suggestions. He lacked their guidance.

35

36

37

• The scene where the Resistance opens the map that leads to Luke Skywalker was at one point going to include Maz Kanata. We know because the documentary shows the same footage, but with actress Lupita Nyong’o kneeling next to the other actors her mo-cap outfit. It’s likely she was digitally erased from the final shot.

• Kylo Ren and his Snowtroopers find and board the Millennium Falcon on Starkiller Base, which is how Kylo knows his father was there, and that the Resistance’s attack is imminent.

38

40

39

• The first scene Daisy Ridley shot was of scrubbing the scavenged part; John Boyega’s was filming around the crashed TIE Fighter.

Blu-ray-quality copies of Star Wars: The Force Awakens have hit piracy sites, less than two weeks ahead of Disney’s planned home-video release of the blockbuster in the format. The first pirated copies of Star Wars: The Force Awakens appeared online late Tuesday, and within 12 hours had been downloaded by about 250,000 people, according to piracy-news site TorrentFreak, which first reported the leak.

Disney has set April 1 for the home-video release of the film, followed by Blu-ray on April 5. The movie has grossed more than $2 billion worldwide at the box office. Lower-quality “cam” rips of The Force Awakens cropped up on pirate sites shortly after the movie’s theatrical debut last December, but the latest leak appears to be the first DVD-quality copy to hit piracy networks.

Digital copies of Blu-Ray leaked weeks before the discs reach the stores is not new. We had access to one of the many copies of The Force Awakens available online and it indicates the rip came from a regular retail disc.

And if you can’t wait until April 5 to buy your Blu-ray disc and watch The Force Awakens again, you can download the movie by torrent from rarbg.to site (you will need to have a torrent client installed on your device as uTorrent or BitTorrent). But remember: the illegal downloading of copyrighted material is crime. Buy the original when it is available and may the Force be with you!

– Sanitation? Then how do you know to disable the shields?
– I don’t. I’m just here to get Rey.
