Han Solo says you should never fuck with a Wookie because they’ll rip your arm off, and now we’ve got proof. Ouch.

The unaired scene from The Force Awakens shows Unkar Plutt confronting Rey in Maz Kanata’s castle after she and Finn “stole” the Millennium Falcon. Chewie, always one to defend a friend, comes in and shuts Unkar up by literally ripping his arm out of his socket. The clip was first teased last year ahead of The Force Awakens’ 3D Collector’s Edition release in November, but the full version (arm pulling and all) has finally been brought to the public.


It’s a pretty graphic scene; and while it is terrific, I can understand why Disney chose to take it out. Kids probably wouldn’t take too kindly to seeing the dismembered digits of some creepy alien flopping through the air while blood spurts out of his gaping armhole. Although it’d probably make for a hilarious toy. Unkar Plutt, now comes with detachable arm...yank it off and he screams!

It’s such a dumb scene in so many ways, not least of which is: How the hell did Plutt get there so damned fast? Even in a world with lasers, the ability to operate in space without a suit, and spacewizards, this strains credulity.
