I got the dvd, and i saw the one where qui-gon destroys a probe droid then tells anakin to run for it. why did they cut it out? i was wondering why qui-gon and anakin were running toward the ship. It would have cleared that up.

yeah, also originally when qui-gonn leapt onto the ship's ramp maul jumps up as well and they continue to fight before qui-gonn knocks him off, that why he's lying down in the following scene, it wasn't filmed but it was storyboarded.
all scenes that were cut were because GL thought it wasn't flowing and they weren't needed. he has a habbit of wanting to speed things up. that's why the duel in Ep II was cut short as well. but at least they're being put onto the dvd, another reason to look forward to it.

Ya also the scene in ep1 when the bongo goes over the waterfall. That shouldnt have been cut. I dont care how long the movie is. If its great put it in there! there was also a scene shot but never completed where Qui and Obi meet in the forest and Obis saber is shorted out cause he forgot to turn off the power before he got wet. Qui lectures him on it.

I agree completely..!! All of a sudden you see them running to the ship and you're thinking "what in the hell are the running for....?" Just taking a nice jog or something......I guess.

qui-gon would be able to sense danger. :confused:

I doubt that Qui-Gon would of been able to feel the incoming danger. Jedi can sense many things but they can't sense everything. Look at how Yoda and Mace can't feel what was going to happen in AOTC? That was something that was very big and significent. Now something as small as Darth Maul tracking them would of been even harder. Like Yoda says "The dark side is very difficult to see". Thats why Qui-Gon wouldn't of been able to sense Darth Maul coming.

maybe not sense that its specificly darth maul, but sense that there is "danger" of some sort. much like anakin and obi wan sence the danger in pademe's room in ep.2

I think adding in the scene would've been a good punctuation of the fact that Jedi cannot sense the Sith... Qui-Gon didn't even know Maul was tracking them til he got a weird vibe off that probe droid.

I agree, the probe droid scene should've been left in, but i think that the bongo waterfall scene needed to be cut. It had no relevance to the movie, and it really wasn't that interesting to watch.

Ive also noticed that theres a little more to the fianl dual at the end. while watching the 2nd disc on the Ep1 DVD i saw a bit form where obi wan runs up to darth maul on the reactor core

Somthing thats half a second but i thin should have been kept....One thing that i wish ol GL did was make the fight with darth maul a little bit longer when obi wan jumps over him. I think at least 2-3 seconds more of fighting before obi-wan actually kills him wouldnt have hurt..

oh well. must be me hehehe

THE WORST PART EVER, was when Maul died.... SO BAD, your in the middlef this awesome fight scene, Obi wan gets pushed over, thats cool, then THE SCENE CUTS OUT, RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CLIMACTIC BATTLE!, I could not believe my eyes.... then it cuts back obi wan slashes maul, and hes dead so easily.... Horrible, The scene should have never cut to the part with the droids and Gungans right in the middle of it, then go back and Maul gets killed.... It should have been Maul pushes him over, but Obi and Maul should have gone at it some more, then he could have cut Maul in half.

I cant believe Maul died so easily after he just owned both Obi and Qui...

Ya it was! Great looking scene! And most of the stuff you see in a story is not directly relevant to the plot so wtf is the matter? Why does everything have to be right on the plot? Where is that written? It makes things more enriched and deep. More to the backround and SW universe. I mean Kit Fisto is not relevant to the plot so are ya gonna cut him out? You might as well cut out scenes with Plo Koon!:freakout:

It really wasn't that great looking. I mean, it was kind of neat...but had it been in the movie the movie would have been dragging. I'm glad it was cut. It added nothing to the background or star wars universe. But that's just mine opinion.
