* ''VideoGame/{{Final Fantasy XIII}}'' and its sequel, ''VideoGame/{{Final Fantasy XIII-2}}'' both have plots revolving around the threat of [[spoiler: an [[ColonyDrop artificial worldlet being dropped from low orbit which would wipe out humanity]].]] This is partially due to the fact that the resolution of the first game only applies a stopgap fix for the problem, leaving the threat intact for later recycling. Turns out that multi-gigaton masses suspended in the sky with huge amounts of gravitational potential energy are a safety hazard for human civilizations. Who'd have thought, right?

The opening to ''Film/TheLostWorldJurassicPark'' is adapted from the opening of the first ''Literature/JurassicPark'' book.



*** The book's aviary inspired a scripted pteranodon flock attack in the abandoned city. CGI models and at least one animatronic were made, but the scene was too much of a challenge and was abandoned, the CGI models having just a cameo in the end. JP3's aviary is thus refitted from both the first film and its sequel. TLW was also intended to end with a final shot of the pteranodons leaving the island; this was the ending shot of JP3.

*** In early drafts of ''Jedi'' the final showdown with the Emperor was supposed to take place on a volcanic lava-covered planet called Had Abbadon. The lava planet idea was revisited as Mustafar in ''Sith'', while the name "Had Abbadon" made it into the ''Star Wars: Legacy'' comic as a planet name.

* In ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' trilogy, the prelude to ''Return of the King'' featuring Sméagol was originally intended to be a flashback during the Dead Marshes scene in ''The Two Towers'' where Frodo voices Gollum's real name to him, sparking old memories.
** Similarly, the scenes where Théoden and co. go to Isengard were originally planned for the end of ''The Two Towers'', but were moved to the beginning of ''Return of the King'' due to EndingFatigue. The talk with Saruman even ended up cut from the theatrical cut as it was anticlimactic, but the Extended Edition restored it as it was meant for watching the trilogy back to back.
** This comes up again with ''{{Film/The Hobbit}}'' (especially in the Extended Editions), which recycles a number of scenes or moments from the ''[[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Lord of the Rings]]'' books that couldn't make it into the movies. This kinda makes sense, considering that the ''[[Literature/TheHobbit Hobbit]]'' book is far too short to fill a trilogy.

** A subversion of sorts. Rowling considered opening the second book with a scene where Draco Malfoy and Theodore Nott are hanging out together at Malfoy Manor and discussing recent events from their point of view. She later reworked the scene as an opening for the fourth book, but she decided to cut it that time as well. Ultimately, it was never used in the series at all.

* Similarly, ''Sonic & Knuckles'' consists almost entirely of material that was originally intended for ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sonic the Hedgehog 3]]'' but was cut due to time and hardware constraints.
** The two games can, however, be locked on together, which creates "Sonic 3 & Knuckles" which is the official full game, and the longest in the original Sonic trilogy.

* WordOfGod is that this is the case for ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' which is why [[UpdatedRerelease the HD remake]] will not be having any additional dungeons. For instance, there's speculation that Fado from ''Wind Waker'' is to Fado from ''Ocarina Of Time''. It's a popular theory that the blonde Kokiri girl from the Biggoron Sword quest, officially called "Fado", was a Wind Sage but her role was given to Saria late in development. Come a few years later and we have a blond ([[GenderFlip male]]) Kokiri named "Fado" who was the Wind Sage.

* At the end of ''VideoGame/TheSecretOfMonkeyIsland'', Guybrush was originally supposed to follow [=LeChuck=] into an alley and down into an underground passage. The underground passage was brought back in ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland2LeChucksRevenge'', and if Guybrush takes the elevator up he can go to the alley from the first game, only with a barrier blocking the way to the street.

* Inverted in the first two Christopher Reeve [[Film/{{Superman}} Superman movies]], where the "spin the earth backwards-time travel" ending in the first film was actually planned to be used at the end of the second, but Donner added it to the first film to create a more memorable climax.

** 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 can be found on Youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEKo4iHI7C0 The POVSequel features a similar scene that relates to Timon's overall "dream home" subplot.
