A never-before-seen deleted sequence from Star Wars: A Force Awakens has been revealed by J.J. Abrams, revealing the dark fate of the junkyard dealer Unkar Plutt (Simon Pegg). If you’ve read the novelization of the film, you may have some semblance of an idea as to what was hinted as his fate in the novelization of the film. However, the new scene reveals more detail and it is quite disarming to say the least.

Entertainment Weekly does a beautiful job of breaking down what happens before we get to the actual deleted scene:

After the Falcon is located by Han Solo and Chewbacca, who say its reactivation allowed them to track it, Han tells Finn and Rey that others might be able to follow its trail as well. That sets up the logic for Plutt’s arrival at Maz Kanata’s castle on the planet Takodana, where Plutt corners Rey and begins issuing threats.

The newly emboldened scavenger draws her weapon, but Plutt quickly snatches it away, only to find himself picked on by someone who definitely isn’t Plutt’s own size — Chewbacca.

The wounded Wookiee looms large, but Plutt is undaunted, literally poking the space bear.

This is where the fun juicy bits of the deleted scene comes into play. Chewbacca, as he should, gets pissed off and proceeds to rip off Plutt’s limbs. This reveals a side of Chewbacca that we have yet to see in the Star Wars cinematic universe. Wookies are known to be scary, badasses in the Star Wars universe, but we have yet to truly see them in scary action.

The new deleted scene will be available on the new 3-D Blu-ray disc for Star Wars: A Force Awakens. It comes out on November 15, 2016. It is said that it will be full of more goodies for all of us to enjoy, so keep your wallets ready to purchase it when it comes out!
