Along with a full-length documentary behind the making of the film and a look at the first table read, the Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens blu ray and DVD will also feature the inclusion of several mysterious, deleted scenes from the movie as well. While a majority of the deleted scenes have remained unknown for the time being, we do at least know that one of them will feature Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren aboard the Millennium Falcon.

Now, Entertainment Weekly has released several new images from the blu ray, as well as new details behind each of its deleted scenes, including when and where Ren found himself aboard his father’s beloved spaceship.

Here are the deleted scenes that will be included with the film’s home video release:

  • Stormtrooper Finn’s run-in with a Jakku village woman in the opening attack.
  • Han, Finn, and Chewie face down a squadron of stormtroopers in Maz Kanata’s basement.
  • Kylo Ren leads snowtroopers to the crashed Millennium Falcon at Starkiller Base, and has an emotional remembrance inside.
  • General Leia is introduced earlier in the film, as Major Brance (Emun Elliott) gets a distress signal from BB-8 informing them of the attack on the Jakku village.
  • Poe Dameron and the other X-Wings prepare for lightspeed as they head into battle, giving us a chance to see starships in space.
  • Finn and Rey escape Starkiller base on a First Order snowspeeder, while another gives chase.
  • Rey gets an update on an injured Finn’s condition from Dr. Kalonia (Harriet Walton).

What’s noticeably lacking from these scenes, are any hints at what Maz Kanata’s expanded role in the film was going to be, especially since fans noticed a number of the character’s scenes and lines of dialogue that were present in the film’s trailers seemed to be missing from the final theatrical cut, although the exclusion of them here might have been intentional.

So yes, he did board the Falcon on Starkiller Base, and thinking back on the film itself, it’s clear that there may have been a moment missing between Solo’s arrival on Starkiller Base and his eventual confrontation with Ren. It seems more and more like all of the deleted scenes in the film though, or at least the ones we’ll be seeing, are mostly just in-between moments in the story that weren’t needed in the actual, theatrical cut.

Either way, I’m just looking forward to being able to pop this in my blu ray player, sitting back, and watching The Force Awakens countless more times in the coming months.

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens will be released on digital on April 1st, and blu ray and DVD on April 5th.
