Årets överlägset hetaste filmpremiär är nu bara en ynka vecka bort. Och här på Gamereactor kan vi inte hålla kroppsvätskorna i styr längre. Star Wars: The Last Jedi ser fullständigt fantastisk ut såhär på förhand och naturligtvis jobbar Disney nu på högvarv för att marknadsföra filmen så mycket det bara går. I en nygjord intervju med Collider har regissören Rian Johnson pratat en del om klippningen av filmen och tydligen var den första versionen över tre timmar lång.
"We had a long movie from the start. It was well over three hours, the first cut... It's much better at two and a half [hours] than it was at over three, but it was a cut I had put together, is where we started. And it was over three hours. A lot of really good stuff came out in the edit. I actually just reviewed the deleted scenes we're gonna have on the Blu-ray. There's a bunch of, some of my favorite scenes ended up having to come out just structurally... There's a lot of really substantial, really good scenes. There's a couple whole sequences actually that we lifted out. It's weirdly, and this always happens, it's like your babies you have to kill. It's some of my favorite stuff from the movie."
Rian pratade lite om en eventuell "extended cut" på Blu-ray, en idé som han inte verkar vara särskilt förtjust i:
"I'm really not into [releasing an extended cut]. I feel like the cut is what it is because I feel like it's the best version of the movie, so the 'director's cut' is the movie that's going out in theaters. All the deleted scenes, no matter how much I love them, they came out for a reason and it's all for the greater good of the movie itself. You can watch the deleted scenes on their own, I think that's the way to watch them, but the movie is definitely the best version of the movie I think."
