** When Creator/NicholasMeyer directed ''Film/StarTrekII'', he planned to title it "''The Undiscovered Country''", a reference to ''{{Theatre/Hamlet}}''. ExecutiveMeddling overrode him and titled the film "''The Wrath of Khan''" instead. When Meyer returned to direct ''Film/StarTrekVI'', he again pushed for the title "''The Undiscovered Country''", but this time he had enough clout to succeed.

* The original concept for ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'''s Rise was a blonde, [[ChainPain chain-wielding]] ice queen {{delinquent}} who was a fully-controllable party member. By the time of the final game, Rise's blonde hair was lost when she was redesigned to look more like [[Creator/RieKugiyama her voice actress]] (some aspects of the original design went to Social Link NPC Ai Ebihara), the delinquency aspect was dropped to avoid redundancy with fellow party member Kanji, and she was moved to a MissionControl role providing support for the party. In the [[VideoGame/{{Persona 5}} next game]], party member Anne uses a number of these rejected concepts: delinquency, blonde hair, and a frontline ActionGirl who fights with similar-to-chains [[WhipItGood whips]].

* ''Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe'': The opening where Film/JamesBond skis off a cliff and opens a parachute was originally suggested by Creator/GeorgeLazenby for ''Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService'', but was scrapped because the filmmakers lacked the resources to pull it off.

** There is one scene deleted from the final cut where Timon refused to go help Simba and Pumbaa tries to encourage him. A storyboard version of it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEKo4iHI7C0 can be found on Youtube]]. The POVSequel features a similar scene that relates to Timon's overall "dream home" subplot.
** More famously, POVSequel takes a "lost" verse from "Hakuna Matata," and shows Timon's backstory.
** Concept art for "Warthog Rhapsody", which was replaced by "Hakuna Matata", uses a waterfall scene that looks like one used in the POVSequel. The tune for the song was reused for "Thatís All I Need".
** The song "He Lives in You" from ''Simba's Pride'' was originally written for the first film, though it did show up first in the Broadway musical.

* ''WesternAnimation/RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer'' lost the song "We're a Couple of Misfits" in reruns, from 1965-1997, to accommodate for additional commercials and/or a re-shot ending. Before its restoration to ''Rudolph'', it reappeared in the 1979 {{Crossover}} ''Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July'', as a duet between Rudolph and WesternAnimation/FrostyTheSnowman.
