15 Interesting Details In Early Drafts Of Beloved Movies
There’s a reason narratives of all kinds, from short stories and novels to TV and movie scripts, go through multiple drafts. It’s exceedingly rare that the first version is the final version. Sure, the broad strokes of the plot might make it through each iteration intact, but it’s the details, the little morsels of the experience, that get worked and reworked until it’s just right.
Pixar has to pull its punches because it punches too hard, Marvel has to dial back on their cameos lest they steal the spotlight and momentum of the story they’re telling at that moment, and the Game of Thrones guys one time didn’t shoehorn in something just because it “would be cool.” It’s these interesting details from the pre-production stage that makes people kick ass on trivia night, and so here are a few to hopefully level the playing field at the next one, because let’s be honest, Carl’s (or Karli or Jane or Terence or whatever your nemesis’ name is) tendency to win at trivia is getting really annoying.
