Check out a description for a pretty awesome scene that was cut from Star Wars: The Force Awakens featuring Maz using her Force powers and fighting Stormtroopers.

The info comes from SFX supervisor Chris Corbould (via the Collider).

CHRIS CORBOULD: There was a particular part of a scene that never made it, where they go underneath the castle and they’re going into the underground passageways, and stormtroopers are coming down the stairs and Maz uses her powers to collapse the ceiling.

From my point of view, [that] worked absolutely brilliantly because you had all the main actors running up and then Maz does her bit and then the whole ceiling collapses in front of them, but that never made it. That was a shot I was quite proud of, actually, it worked really, really well.

Other deleted scenes included more aerial combat dogfighting, a snowspeeder chase, more of the Rathars, Kylo Ren turning on his lightsaber, and a shot of Maz placing the Skywalker lightsaber into the hand of Carrie Fisher's General Leia.

Hopefully the scenes makes their way on to the Blu-Ray, and also check out a cool video going over Star Wars: The Force Awakens deleted scenes and rejected concepts.

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is currently in theaters.
