    In one of the Finn featurettes, there was a shot in the opening scene of the interior of one of the FO landing craft with an automated voice declaring 'Ground assault: commence." Which wasn't in there. Was actually a nice touch I felt that emphasized the machine-like thinking of the First Order.

    The X-Wing over water shot is potentially the best shot since the post-crawl sequence in ANH.

    I didn't watch any trailers before the film (teaser only)

    I've since gone back and watched all the trailers and I think there are quite a few shots not in the film but in the trailers

    Yes! We saw the hand on R2 but never the handing over of the saber. The thing is, this was a projection sequence to a past event that Rey never experienced. So who was receiving the blue lightsaber? Kylo?

    The snow planet: when the storm troopers are facing the stage, turn around and ready their rifles. I don't think this made the cut.

    It did, just with different sounds.

    Kind of Complete List of Shots That Didn't Make The Movie:
    1. Rey reaction shot on her speeder from teaser #1
    2. X-Wings from teaser #1
    3. Kylo igniting the saber in the forest
    4. Maz handing the saber to Leia
    5. X-Wings from teaser 2
    6. Poe's "woo-hoo!" (they used a different take)
    7. Kylo turning around from teaser 2 (they used a different take)
    8. Stormies turning around at Starkiller (they used a different take)
    9. Rey looking up after this shot
    10. The hangar bay shot from teaser #2
    11. BB-8 peaking from the Falcon
    12. Rey and moisture vaporaters from teaser #2
    13. Rey lending her hand to Finn (they used a different take)
    14. TIE pilot shot from teaser #2
    15. "Chewie, we're home" (different take)
    16. Finn taking off the helmet from trailer 1 (not deleted, but reversed)
    17. Finn and Rey on the Falcon from trailer 1 (Finn doesn't walk up to where Rey is)
    18. Han's "all of it" (different take)
    19. Falcon jumping into hyperspace

    The Knights of Ren shots were in. Can't say if they were the same as in the trailer though (it was only for about three seconds).

    Definitely some trailer dialogue not in the movie:

    Finn: "I've got nothing left to fight for"
    Maz: "I see your eyes. I know your eyes"

    Was also a slightly different take of Han's "Chewie, we're home" scene. It's subtle, but different.

    That's right. The Knights of Ren shot was there. It was the wider shot and longer.

    Kylo igniting saber in forest was my fav shot in all teasers and trailers. Disappointed it went to cutting room floor.

    Also Rey riding her speeder towards the settlement was a mirrored shot. In the teaser she went from right to left.
    Especially with the missing shot of her starting the engine as if being chased there seems to be an entire sequence missing.

    I was RIDICULED for insisting this wouldn't make the movie. You could tell it was really a very early concept "sketch" type thing, or whatever it's called.

    Much like this, to be shown at Comic Con 2009:

    Technically not a shot, since it's just dialogue, but:
    "Who are you?"
    "I'm no one."
    Also Maz talking about the force, if I'm not mistaken?

    I thought it was funny that the EW shot of Finn and Rey looking at kylo in the forest was a real shot. EW sure photoshopped the heck out of it to brighten up Finn/Rey to the point where we all thought it was fake.

    It was just poorly edited for the magazine hahaha

    I had no investment in him, but that surprises me quite a bit as he has his own figures. Even in the 6" series. Don't think there is a precedent for SW figures being made for a movie that didn't make it in to the movie. (Blue Snaggletooth doesn't count, he was based on prototypes from Lucasfilm)

    Yeah. Sarco Plank got a figure too, but I spotted him in the background.

    This shot was in the film, but it was not Leia, it was Rey. People had assumed it was Leia in the trailer due to the voice "My sister has it", but in fact it is Rey.

    I imagine Zuvio's scene will be among the deleted ones on the DVD. Not surprised I missed that it had been deleted, here was too much else going on.

    Man, there seemed like a lot of them, no? Some of the "missing" scenes seemed pretty apparent, too.
