Constable Zuvio

Is Constable Zuvio In The Film?

Some people believe Constable Zuvio appears during Rey’s vision, but Lucasfilm story group member Pablo Hidalgo has confirmed that the person on screen during that moment is a human character, and not Zuvio. We assume that character, who appears during the massacre at Luke Skywalker’s new Jedi Academy, could be a Jedi padawan.

Some other fans think they have spotted Zuvio in the background under the tend in the scene where Rey is taking down the two guys who try to steal BB-8 (although Hidalgo is skeptical). Behind the scenes features have shown he was on set as Rey and Finn are running through the market place on Jakku. One thing for sure is that he doesn’t appear in the final film in any meaningful capacity.

But because products like the toy line and books were developed before Star Wars: The Force Awakens was finished editing, some things ended up in the merchandising that never made it into the movie. The fact that Zuvio is featured in so many of the products might suggest he was a late cut from the film.

What Was Constable Zuvio’s Deleted Scene?

The scene in which Contable Zuvio was to appear in the film would have taken place right after the thugs attack Rey in an attempt to abduct BB-8. From what I’ve heard, local peacekeeper Constable Zuvio “steps in to break up the tussle.” After settling the issue with the Constable, Rey heads back to her dwelling, “keenly aware that the dastardly Unkar would like nothing better than to get his hands on her new droid.” From what gleam, the moment with the thugs plays out differently in the film as originally Finn (FN-2187) had not yet escaped from the First Order at that point. BB-8 recognizing Finn originally happened the next day.

If this is true, the final edit in the film is very cleverly edited.  I don’t have a second source on this info, so I’m not sure if this is exactly how it all went down. But that is your answer for now.
