Rian Johnson revealed a number of scenes cut from The Last Jedi will feature in the novelization, including Han Solo’s funeral.
The news was disclosed in the latest episode of The Star Wars Show.
Johnson met with the author of the book Jason Fry and conjured up new scenes to expand on the movie.
“That’s kind of the fun stuff you can get into a novel that you can’t always get onto the screen,” he said.
As well as Han’s funeral, the novelization will feature scenes with Rose and her sister Paige Tico together, as well as a deeper exploration of the lavish Canto Bight.
The novelization with all of its expanded scenes will be available on March 6.
