'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Blooper Reel Shows The Many Times Poe Dameron Got Slapped

Spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi below.

Before The Last Jedi came out in theaters, Oscar Isaac (who plays ace pilot and so-so tactician Poe Dameron) had mentioned during an interview that there was a scene where he gets slapped across the face by the late Carrie Fisher, in character as General Leia Organa. He also mentioned that this scene took several takes to get right, and he got slapped during every single one.

Now, we finally get to see that. To promote the new Blu-ray of Star Wars: The Last Jedi which just came out, Disney and Lucasfilm have released a number of deleted scenes and bonus features, and they've finally released the official Last Jedi gag reel. And among other line flubs and on-set weirdness, the reel starts off with a gloriously slapstick montage of Dameron getting slapped by Leia for several different takes, from several different angles.

See the whole blooper reel below:



Between Kelly Marie Tran's background with CollegeHumor, Mark Hamill's generally snarky demeanor, and whoever pulled that prank involving the tiny BB-8 droid which suddenly appeared during a take, it appears that much fun was had on the set of the film. Considering that a "baby" version of BB-8 never appeared in the movie, it's curious how that prop existed to surprise Tran and John Boyega in the first place, but it got a great reaction.

Beyond that, there's a lot of reaction shots of Daisy Ridley flubbing lines, pieces of the set falling onto Benicio Del Toro (who doesn't break his DJ character to talk to the crew), more silly faces from Hamill, and a deeply silly shot of Poe Dameron tenderly joining Finn and Rey's hug.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now out on Blu-ray and online.
