The Rebel Alliance and the First Order may have been fighting each other for more than 30 years in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but the cast of Episode VII certainly knew how to have a good time together! A new bonus scene from The Force Awakens Blu-Ray and DVD home release (exclusively on the Target version) shows everyone dancing along as Daisy Ridley and John Boyega rap about working on the set!
The clip opens with Ridley and Boyega discussing their collaboration then immediately reveals the Alliance, including Rey, some X-Wing pilots and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) just letting loose on the set. The Stormtroopers also show of some fancy dance moves and even director J.J. Abrams couldn't resist getting in on the fun. There is even a shot of Ridley dancing with Carrie Fisher, but it's clear that the Stormtroopers are the ones who are enjoying a few carefree moments before Gwendoline Christie's Captain Phasma snaps at them to get back to their station.
But where is Ben Solo? Unfortunately, there is no appearance from Adam Driver's Kylo Ren, who was probably busy wreaking havoc with his crossguard lightsaber somewhere in the Starkiller Base.
On a sad note, the bonus scene features long-time fan favorite Admiral Ackbar getting his boogie on. Erik Bauersfeld, who provided the unmistakable voice of the beloved Star Wars character, had recently died at the age of 93. In a statement from Coolwaters Production, Bauersfeld is said to have died from "natural causes."
"Erik will be deeply missed by his family here at Coolwaters and our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends," the statement concluded.
In addition to giving voice to Ackbar (who coined the catchphrase "It's a trap!"), the Crimson Peak actor also voiced another Return of the Jedi character, Bib Fortuna.
