We’ve known for awhile that it’s not wise to upset a Wookiee, but a deleted scene from Star Wars: The Force Awakens demonstrates exactly what happens when you do.

Although it was included on the Force Awakens’ 3D Collector’s Edition released last year, some fans are just discovering what they were missing. This particular deleted scene occurred at Maz Kanata’s castle. As Rey sets off around the cantina, she runs into an old foe who is especially unhappy that she went off with his ship. 

But she has Chewbacca.

We can see why this scene was cut from the final film, but it would’ve been such a great payoff six episodes in the making.

Chewbacca: +1, Unkar Plutt: -1 arm.
