wow. thats epic.

that proves a few things too... like... it seems that most of the stuff in the 2007 script that wasnt in the movie... is deleted scenes.

so... Max does gets heroic with the treecutter thingy (didnt know he had it in him), and CEO guy does stand up against Quaritch.

I would really still like comfirmation about the school house scene... but ya... lots of added charactor depth that was taken out.  :(  (really... if some of that stuff was left in... i think the biggest complaints (1d characters) that the critics had would be much softer... and signorney weaver might have gotten a Os nom for best supporting actor. (cause that school house scene is really touching  :'( )

I love watching videos like that <3

Me, too! But I'm pretty sure. Something like that is ALWAYS on the DVD.

How long after the normal DVD release do you normally have to wait for a special edition? I'm not sure I'll have the will power to not purchase the normal version day one.

If JC had only made it as long as Titanic (or even longer)! It would have filled so many holes and explained the motivation of the characters:
- why Neytiri wanted to shoot Jake
- why Grace watched not to get too involved with the Na'vi (again)
- Jake's inner conflict

it would have also shown that Selfridge wasn't entirely that corporate weasel as that he apeared in the movie and that Quaritch totally lost it when he ordered the attack on the Tree of Souls ...

But from what I've read so far only 10 to 12 min. out of the 40 min. of deleted scenes will make it into the extended cut :'(

Well, that was what Cameron said in one of the video interviews (can't remember which right now). I also hope he re-thinks that. Maybe we need to start a petition ...

Now we just need to set up a letter with our request and post it on a petition site.

Important is also to get this on all Avatar related forums and only to start one petition to not get it splintered up

I completely agree with you, after reading the movie script i really couldnt figure out why they cut so many things out of the movie, things that would have filled alot of plot holes and fixed some of the criticisms against the movie.

Things in the script that were taken out tell us:

Why Jake is the new clan leader at the end
Why there are some avatars to be seen in the final humans-are-leaving secene
That Quaritch had forcibly taken over and potentially gone mad when he attacks the Tree of Souls
That Max and the other avatar drivers, who had practically no part, finally do something and destroy the command center (slash cutter)
Just how f**k'd-up earth actually is
What happened to Grace's school, and why she holds back from "going native"
Just how desperate the RDA was at the end, they where arming mine workers as militia
Significantly extended explanation of Tsu'Tey's death, leads to why Jake is clan-leader
Neytiri is pregnant at end

There are certianly alot more things i didnt list here, and some of them can be considered plot changes between the script and the movie... but there are still a significant number of back-story or side-story scenes left out here that could really have added to the movie. Id gladly have the movie be 20 minutes longer to have these important story points added in...
