This scene was supposed to emphasize a romantic relationship between Dr. Grant
and Dr. Sattler, as well as introduce a few bits and pieces of techno-babble
about the "Velociraptor" skeletons; mostly about how they died and how they
hunted in packs.
Overall these scenes were to establish a little background information
about the characters and to deal with a foreshadowing event of
the Velociraptor intelligence seen later in the film as intelligent
pack hunters. These were probably eliminated due to pacing.
arriving to the island a momentary scene that was seen in the
trailer was cut where Dr. Sattler grabs the extinct plant leaf
she talks about later in the film.
are the kids here?
scene involves Hammond explaining to Gennaro, Grant, Sattler,
and Malcolm on why exactly Lex and Tim are here at Jurassic Park.
Hammond tells them that their family is going through a difficult
time as their parents are getting a divorce. Hammond is wanting
his guests to be understanding of this fact, but apparently Dr.
Malcolm makes a cynical comment. This scene was also possibly
cut due to pacing of the film.
scene was most likely cut due to pacing of the film, but it would
have been nice if it was kept in for the sake of resolving why
the Triceratops was sick. Tim finds rounded stones beside the
West Indian Lilac that is toxic to the animals. It's suggested
then by Ellie and Dr. Grant that when the Triceratops eats the
gizzard stones it accidentally eats the poisonous berries beside
Also worthy of notation is that the baby Triceratops scene was supposed to
take place around this time. The baby was to goose Lex and then demonstrate
itself as being playful. This scene was also cut at the last minute
after Stan Winston Studios produced the model for use. The model
would luckily though be re-used in The Lost World: Jurassic Park
when Nick and Sarah free the dinosaurs from the Hunters.
couple of pictures have appeared showing what would be a longer
journey for Grant and the kids trekking across Isla Nublar to
return to the Visitor's Center. This scene is supposed to be before
Grant and the kids scale the Perimeter fence.
Journey to the Shed
scene appears on the Beyond: Jurassic Park Bonus DVD that
was featured in the Box Set release after Jurassic
Park 3 was released on DVD. We apologize for the quality of
the image. This shot could in fact be a directional shot to show
where Muldoon and Ellie were heading. It's an interesting shot,
probably to give an eerie tone to their trek, but it was also,
like the other scenes, eliminated for time constraints more than
Raptor in the Shed
scene appears to be an extension to the scene with Ellie finding
Grant. Ellie is supposed to be calling out to Grant and telling
him to run towards the Bunker and asking where the kids are. Would
have been a nice scene to keep in, but it doesn't answer the question
how Ellie loses her pink overshirt.
