Get ready to see a lot more of a galaxy far, far away.

On Tuesday, Disney and Lucasfilm announced new details about the upcoming home release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and it’s packed with special features, deleted scenes, and backstage looks at the eighth installment of the saga.

The bonus features boast 14 deleted scenes from the film, all with optional commentary from writer-director Rian Johnson, as well as a feature-length documentary about the making of the film. Also included are two unedited scenes of Andy Serkis’ performance as the nefarious Supreme Leader Snoke, as well as in-depth looks at how Johnson interpreted the mythology of the Force and how he brought key scenes — like the opening space battle or the clash on Crait — to life. Fingers crossed that at least one of the deleted scenes includes porgs.

Here’s the full list of special features, via Lucasfilm:

    • Showdown on Crait – Break down everything that went into creating the stunning world seen in the movie’s final confrontation, including the interplay between real-world locations and visual effects, reimagining the walkers, designing the crystal foxes, and much more.
