Where did #LaunchTheJJCut concerning ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ come from?

A current Reddit post claims that Disney made a number of adjustments to the movie that Abrams didn’t approve of. Star Wars followers took to social media demanding that Disney launch the reduce scenes by creating the hashtag: #LaunchTheJJCut.

“J.J. [Abrams]’ original early November cut was three hours, two minutes long,” defined the Reddit person who claims to be “corresponding with someone who worked closely on the production of TROS.”

Star Wars followers need to see the director’s reduce if it exists.

“Over a period of nine months, J. J. [Abrams] started realizing that one by one, his ideas and whole scenes were being thrown out the window or entirely altered by people who have ‘no business meddling with the creatives,’” wrote the Redditor. 

Many followers imagine that the Abrams’ reduce is significantly better than The Rise of Skywalker that’s enjoying in theaters. 

What did Dominic Monaghan say that suggests he believes there’s a J. J. reduce of ‘The Rise of Skywalker’?

In the brand new movie, The Rise of Skywalker, Monaghan portrays Beaumont Kin, a Resistance fighter alongside Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran) and Lieutenant Kaydel Ko Connix, performed by Billie Lourd— the daughter of the late Carrie Fisher. The Lost and Lord of the Rings star requested Abrams quite a few instances to star in a Star Wars movie. He lastly received his want with the newest installment, and it was all the things he had hoped for. 

“Oh, man, there was so much stuff,” Monaghan informed The Hollywood Reporter. “But, I remember texting J.J. at the end of certain days and saying, ‘Oh my God, I can’t wait to see that.’ It was just extraordinary to even just be involved in that scene, and unfortunately, with the time constraints, they didn’t make it, or they changed things around.”

Monaghan explains that there are quite a few scenes unnoticed of the movie that he hopes floor sooner or later.

“So, I’m hoping that if and when the DVD comes out that maybe they’ll add extras or they’ll have deleted, additional scenes,” the actor continued. “Another thing that we will hopefully see at some point in the future is that in the final battle, Connix injures her leg.”

“Obviously, myself, Rose, and Connix are exiting the battle, and Rose has a weapon,” Monaghan describes the reduce scene. “While Rose is busy doing stuff, I grab Connix’s arm and put it over my shoulder to make sure that all of us come back as unscathed as possible.”

It seems like there are quite a few scenes that didn’t make it into the ultimate reduce of the movie.

Why do followers imagine that Monaghan is implying there’s a director’s reduce of ‘The Rise of Skywalker’?

Fans took the interview with Monaghan to indicate that there’s certainly a director’s reduce of the film that must be launched.

“Read between the lines,” wrote one Reddit person. “I get the feeling he implies a lot more than that. Keep in mind, if he does know something, he likely can’t answer directly either because of NDAs or just not wanting to get his friend, J. J., in more trouble than he’s already in.”

Several different followers agreed that Monaghan is confirming the Reddit supply with out popping out and saying it.

“I read it as him openly saying it could be true,” added one other Redditor, “because that is explicitly what he said. He can’t confirm it, but he also refused to deny it. That certainly doesn’t close the door on this leak. Quite the opposite.”

Although Monaghan doesn’t implicitly state that #LaunchTheJJCut is true, he doesn’t deny it. Therefore, followers will maintain asking for it. You can catch the film, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in theaters now.
