And now we know a little more about the long rumored Tom Hardy cameo that was left on the cutting room floor.
The Last Jedi‘s Blu-ray will include 20 minutes of deleted scenes, presumably including Hardy’s scene. We already knew he likely played a stormtrooper in a scene alongside John Boyega, with other stormtroopers played by Prince William, Prince Harry, and Take That lead singer Gary Barlow.
