Simon talks to astronaut Kate Rubins about science fiction and life on the International Space Station!
From Entertainment Weekly:
A never-before-seen deleted sequence from Star Wars: The Force Awakens has revealed the fate of Unkar Plutt, the blobfish-like junk dealer who made Rey’s life miserable on the desert world of Jakku.
As fans of the movie already know, Rey escaped Plutt’s clutches when she, Finn, and BB-8 stole the Millennium Falcon while fleeing from the First Order. Plutt (played by Simon Pegg) was last seen shaking his fists at the vanishing starship and crying out, “That’s mine!”
The theft of a prized vehicle proved to be enough comeuppance for the character, but this newly released deleted scene, available on the upcoming 3-D Collector’s Edition Blu-ray release, shows that director and co-writer J.J. Abrams originally had an even more brutal ending in mind for the side villain. (Those who read the movie’s novelization already have a hint of what’s to come.)
