Avatar script with excluded scenes for download

Fox have just released the “Original” Avatar script. I haven’t read it all yet but there seems to be a lot of omitted scenes and dialog in the script that didn’t make it in to the final movie.

It’s a great read if you like to get to know some of the characters at a deeper level than you get to know them in the movie. Should the movie have been longer?

Anyways, this is promising for the DVD/BluRay release that eventually will be released, probably some of the scenes omitted were shot but cut out in the editing room, hopefully (probably) they will be included in the future DVD/BluRay special edition.

So, click the download link below and please feel free to leave a comment on what you thought of it.

You can download and read the Avatar script here (PDF-document).

UPDATE: I’ve changed the picture that goes along with this post, as you can see it’s Jake in his wheelchair. The scene takes place in a bar on earth. That’s a scene that’s not in the movie, but you can find it on page 2 in the script (and the trailer, 7 seconds in).

INT. ROWDY BAR — NIGHT
Not the kind of place you’d bring your mom.
We find Jake near the pool table, BALANCING his chair, front wheels off the ground, while holding a tequila shot on his forehead.  ONLOOKERS,  including some other disabled vets, CLAP and WHOOP.

Jake grabs the glass, SLAMS down the shot as they cheer.

A WALL-SIZED SCREEN filled with the World Cup game — men RUNNING on antelope legs.

CU JAKE, watching what he can’t have.  Expression stony.

JAKE (V.O.)
Let’s get it straight up front.  I don’t want your pity.  I know the world’s a cold-ass bitch.

    It seems like a lot of the stuff left out would have helped with the character development. which was inevitably left out. for instance this scene between jake and grace.

    She puts her hands on his shoulders.
    GRACE
    No matter what you prove out there– you
    are still in here.
    (shaking him)
    Right here.
    JAKE
    I have to go all the way — become one of
    them–
    GRACE
    (furiously)
    Goddammit, Jake, you can never be one of
    them!
