During the recording of the Talk Star Wars podcast last night, a little The Force Awakens trivia came up. It was the recently revealed news that The Force Awakens was to feature the Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker duel on Bespin, but a slightly reshot version of that scene...
The scene was intended to be a part of Rey's vision and was revealed in the recently revealed book called Rey's Story. Here is an excerpt:
The scene was designed to be viewed from a different vantage point by Rey and to leave our new hero scared and confused, even though we would be aware of the significance of the scene. The roles of Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker are rumoured to have been recast, but there is no official word just yet.
We speculate on the podcast that there may well be a version of this scene on the BluRay in the deleted scenes section. We also debate whether or not an extended cut might be a welcome thing for fans, an edit of the film that includes this Bespin Duel reshoot.
What do you think about the prospect of an extended cut of The Force Awakens? How do you feel about seeing this iconic scene from Star Wars Episode V The Empire Strikes Back recut? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
