WATCH: Don’t mess with a Wookie

January 16th, 2017 by Marc Comments


New footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens has finally brought to life Han Solo’s warning not to upset a Wookie for fearing of losing an arm.

The unaired scene shows Unkar Plutt confronting Rey in Maz Kanata’s castle after she and Finn “stole” the Millennium Falcon.

Chewie 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.

WARNING: This is quite graphic for a Star Wars film so if you are going to show this to a young child, be warned.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
