Warning: spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi ahead.
With Star Wars: The Last Jedi releasing on DVD, Blu Ray and 4K on the 9th April (at least here in the UK) some of the special features and additional/deleted scenes have started to be released early. One such deleted scene comes courtesy of the Star Wars YouTube channel on ‘The Star Wars Show‘, which depicts a very different end for fan favourite Captain Phasma.
Love or hate The Last Jedi, it is the movie we got and is cemented within the Star Wars canon. I personally loved the movie, but I can see why people may have had some issues, however one thing that seems to be unanimous among Star Wars fans was the handling of Gwendoline Christie’s Captain Phasma, in the sense that she had 3 minutes of screen time, and met a very unexpected and unfulfilled end in a battle with Finn.
However one deleted scene which debuted on ‘The Star Wars Show’ shows us an alternate version of this scene with a very different end for Captain Phasma. The video is embedded below, with the scene starting at 1:37.
I personally love this scene, and think it fits a little bit better than the scene we got. It gives Phasma a bit more than a glorified Stormtrooper role, and also gives her a bit more character, based on her actions from The Force Awakens. On the other hand, I can also see why this scene was cut from the movie, but I would have much preferred it.
The question is however, what do you think about this deleted scene? Let me know in the comments below, or hit me up on Twitter at any time. There’s sure to be a lot more deleted and alternate scenes when the movie is released officially, so my 4K Steelbook can’t get here quick enough!
