Unkar Plutt’s Fate Revealed in New Scene From “The Force Awakens”

A collector’s edition of The Force Awakens, out November 15th, includes some newly released deleted scenes, according to Entertainment Weekly. EW revealed after a sneak peek at the disc’s special features that one deleted scene confirms Unkar Plutt’s fate. Apparently Plutt has never heard the old Solo advice: “let the wookie win”.

Unkar Plutt Disarmed

The cinematic release of The Force Awakens leaves Plutt disgraced and without his stolen Falcon back on Jakku. But Abrams had some other justice planned for the bulbous alien, which was filmed but eventually cut. Plutt’s fate was left intact in the film’s novelization, so the deleted scene isn’t a surprise to those who read The Force Awakens.

The teaser clip cuts off just after Plutt insults Chewie while poking his injured arm. According to EW, the scene continues and “let’s just say, Chewbacca disarms him. We’re talking literally. Rip! Plorp! A limb goes flying and lands on the gambling table, earning a high-pitched scolding from Warwick Davis’ character Wollivan“.

Plutt certainly deserves this harsher fate, after treating Rey and her fellow scavengers like lesser life forms. Mocking Chewie for his injury certainly didn’t make him more likable, either. Plutt’s extended fate makes for a great bit of poetic justice, as well as a little easter egg for both classics fans and those who read the novelization.

The collector’s edition of Star Wars: The Force Awakens releases on November 15th, 2016. The new blu-ray will include additional special features and a 3D version of the film, available to consumers for the first time.

The Force Awakens continues the Star Wars franchise. The film stars Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Gwendolyn Christie (Captain Phasma), and Adam Driver (Kylo Ren). The cast also includes Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa), Mark Hammil (Luke Skywalker), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) and Kenny Baker (R2-D2 consultant).
