As you may have seen in our earlier post, we’ve just learned some very interesting news about the ending of The Force Awakens. Namely, that there was some sort of inconsistency between JJ’s original vision and the story that Rian wanted to tell in his subsequent film, and so Rian asked JJ to cut it out of the final scene of the movie.

You better watch out
You better run
Better hide
I’m telling you why
Triple Claus is coming to town

So run for goodness sake!

O! You better watch out!
You better run Better hide
I’m telling you why
Triple Claus is coming to town
Triple Claus is coming to town
