Dominic Monaghan hopes a Rise of Skywalker director's cut is released

There could be more to come from The Rise of Skywalker.

Fans of LOST and Lord of the Rings were treated to a surprise when they saw that Dominic Monaghan featured heavily in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

The actor has a cult following from a number of his roles, and he had a surprisingly large invovlement in the final movie of the Star Wars franchise.

Monaghan has recently opened up about the movie, saying that he hopes a director's cut of the film is released at some point.

After rumours speculated the movie had been heavily cut, #ReleaseTheJJCut trended on Twitter, and Monaghan seems in agreement that there is plenty more for fans to see.

He said: "Like a lot of Star Wars fans, I’m hoping there will be a director’s cut so we’ll get to see more and more of the stuff that was filmed."

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, he said: "I wasn’t there all the time, but even in the short time that I was there, there was so much stuff filmed that didn’t make it to the theatrical version.... Oh, man, there was so much stuff!"

He also said that filming Leia's death scene was particularly difficult, as Carrie Fisher's daughter played a part in the movie.

"Any time we did that stuff — it was always like…I don’t want to say somber, but it was delicate. Everyone kind of knew that it was heavy.

"We were also conscious of the fact that Billie Lourd, Carrie’s daughter, was on set a lot, and she’s very much loved by everyone because she’s such a sweet woman. We were all conscious of her being potentially triggered."
