IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN "STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI " BEWARE MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!

 

The day is finally here, Star Wars: The Last Jedi hit Blu-ray and DVD today, March 28, which features essential moments for the franchise's main characters, including Luke Skywalker and Hans Solo, as well as 14 deleted scenes.

 

Opening up in a new interview, Mark Hamill, who plays the iconic Skywalker, revealed that he was "disappointed" after learning that director Rian Johnson decided to cut a few vital scenes. When the 66-year-old was asked if he regretted that Luke Skywalker's reaction to Han Solo's devastating death was one that was cut from the film, the iconic actor didn't hold back. 

 

 

"Yes, of course, because it shows Luke was putting on a facade in front of Rey and even Chewie, that he was embittered and sort of a broken man," Hamill told IGN. 

"

They had time for me to milk that big alien but to show any human emotion? Nah, we don't have time for that. But again it's not my call.

"And I think the fact that he could let his emotions out when he was by himself would have made an impact on the audience because it allowed them to grieve the loss of Han Solo just the way Luke felt it," he added.

 

"But that always happens in films. You say, 'Oh, what about this scene where this happens or that happens?" because you want to give the fullest experience that you can," Hamill continued. "And like you say, it was brief enough that I was -- [chuckles]. They had time for me to milk that big alien but to show any human emotion? Nah, we don't have time for that. But again it's not my call."

 

Fans will now be able to see the deleted scene titled "Luke Has a Moment" which takes place on Ahch-To after Luke has learned the answer to his question "Where's Han?" 

 

Luke is seen entering his hut, where some of his belongings are laid out on a table, and he gives in and allows himself to take in a quiet, but emotional moment, alone to grieve the loss of his brother-in-law and friend.
