The Last Jedi was already the longest Star Wars movie ever, so it’s only natural that some scenes needed to be cut from the final film. However, Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker, is slightly bummed that fans didn’t get a chance to see Luke mourn Han Solo because the reclusive Jedi was too busy slurping down that delicious green milk, straight from one of four swollen alien tits.
In an interview with IGN posted on Tuesday, Hamill, who has already made his peace with the unexpected direction Last Jedi took Luke’s character, talked about one deleted scene in particular. In the scene, titled “Luke Has a Moment” on the Blu-ray, Luke returns to his spartan hut after learning that Han, his dear friend and brother-in-law, has died. Hamill said he regretted that director Rian Johnson ultimately cut the scene.
“Because it shows Luke was putting on a facade in front of Rey and even Chewie, that he was embittered and sort of a broken man,” Hamill told IGN. “And I think the fact that he could let his emotions out when he was by himself would have made an impact on the audience because it allowed them to grieve the loss of Han Solo just the way Luke felt it.”
However, Hamill isn’t too bitter, although he did interject some of his classic humor when he went on to say he understands that sometimes, them’s the breaks “That always happens in films,” Hamill said.
You say, “Oh, what about this scene where this happens or that happens?” because you want to give the fullest experience that you can. And like you say, it was brief enough that I was — [chuckles] They had time for me to milk that big alien but to show any human emotion? Nah, we don’t have time for that. But again it’s not my call.
While it perhaps would’ve been nice to see Luke react more strongly to Han’s death, fans can still check out that deleted scene on the Blu-ray. And, Hamill jokes about it, but the green milk scene was iconic. Last Jedi absolutely needed to make time for the weirdest scene in, well, any Star Wars movie.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now available on Blu-ray and digital download.
