Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi managed to add a few more creatures to the mythology George Lucas started in 1977, from the cute Porgs to crystal foxes to, well, a species we didn't get acquainted with all that well: the Lanai, Ahch-To’s caretakers. These “fish nuns" were briefly seen but now, in one of 14 deleted scenes from the film’s home release, we see them in yet another funny encounter with Rey (Daisy Ridley).
In the film, Rey kept having some comedic run-ins with the nuns and the novelization of The Last Jedi then revealed that Luke wanted to see this continue. In the novelization, he tricked Rey into thinking the Lanai were under threat, goading her into a rescue mission. Now, this deleted scene has surfaced, depicting Rey watching a big fire coming from where the creatures were staying.
She rushes off to help them, speeding across Ahch-To's watery terrain before using her lightsaber to cut down a gate at the Lanai's compound. However, they're not under attack nor is the establishment up in flames. Instead, the creatures are having a ball, partying with a bonfire by the beach. We then see Luke laughing while the Lanai's music plays before an angry Rey chastises him for his prank. He takes the time to remind her that he's not the Jedi she's looking for but that doesn't stop Rey from admonishing him for ignoring the philosophies of the religion.
She storms off, stating that she still believes in the concept of Luke Skywalker, even if the man himself doesn't anymore. Of course, Luke would eventually come around, train her and then help the Rebellion stave off Kylo Ren's First Order... for now.
