Fox has posted James Cameron’s script for Avatar online to be read/studied/mocked as you please. The script is dated 2007, and from what I’ve read includes some Earth-based opening scenes that never made it to the film. It’s a shame too, because those scenes actually serve to set up Jake Sully as a character fairly well. Cameron’s future Earth would have also made the impossible beauty of Pandora all the more magical in comparison.
The script also includes some other cut scenes, including a short look at one of the Na’vi schools, and some mentions of a Neytiri’s dead sister Silwanin. It’s worth reading if only to see how much better the film’s narrative would have been if some of these scenes were left in.
