If any one thing about The Last Jedi has been contentious -- actually, no, strike that, everything about The Last Jedi has been contentious, including its approach to space combat (the Holdo Manoeuvre, anyone?).

For many Star Wars fans, a moment almost as exciting as the actual film debut is when it gets a home release. That's when all the deleted scenes come out, adding colour and context to the story.

The response to The Last Jedi has been divisive to say the least. Some love it because it takes Star Wars in a bold new direction; some hate it for the same reason.
