Rey The Last Jedi

The Star Wars: The Last Jedi Blu-ray will feature approximately 20 minutes of deleted scenes, according to director Rian Johnson and editor Bob Ducsay.

Speaking with Collider, Johnson revealed that the Blu-ray release will be filled with deleted scenes. "We loaded it up, man," he said. "Because we had so much good stuff, it was like, there were only a couple things where it's like just a little two-shot thing, we said 'We'll hold that back.' But all the major stuff, all the good stuff, we put on there."

One of the deleted scenes to be featured is a scene with Finn, Rose and DJ on Supreme Leader Snoke's flagship Supremacy, which acts as an extended sequence to the scene that made the final cut. There is also a "massive sequence" with Luke and Rey on Ahch-To featuring the caretakers, and a scene with Finn and Poe near the beginning, with Poe bringing Finn up to speed on what's happening.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi clocked in at 152 minutes, making it the longest film in the Star Wars franchise. Johnson previously revealed his initial cut was around three hours long, so it appears almost all of the scenes that were cut will make it to the Blu-ray release. And yes, the Blu-ray will release will also include a blooper reel.
