As many of you know, Ratchet and Clank Movie director Kevin Munroe had been posting deleted scenes on instagram for a while. Well now you can watch almost all of them in this video! There are French subtitles, but the video is in English without sound effects. Also, some of the scenes have unfinished animation. Let's take an inside look to each scene.
The first scene takes place after Ratchet tells Grimroth, "I should've dreamed smaller…" Ratchet heads to his room and listens to a Captain Qwark button that keeps telling Ratchet he can't be a galactic ranger. Devastated, Ratchet throws it away, and his bed flings upwards.
The next scene shows Ollie, the OTHER Qwark Fan-boy, waiting outside the Hall of Heroes. He keeps saying "Ranger" while the Qwark statue says "Asteroid." Nothing else to this scene, but it does explain why Ollie appeared outside the Capitol when Qwark and the Rangers saw him.
The next scene is an extended action fight, between the Rangers and the Warbots. Clank fixes Ratchet's targeting matrix, which helps him fire at the warship. But the warship returns fire, causing them to "improvise."
The next scene is an extended Mr. Zurkon battle, which finally answers the question: how does Brax get injured? The Zurkons swarm him, causing him to stuff a bomb in one of their loud-mouths. The explosion kills all of the Zurkons, but unfortunately, takes out Brax's arm.
That takes us to the next…confusing scene. After the Rangers get Ratchet back, they go to plan their next move. However, Brax has a mechanical-robot arm! It appears that the blast killed his arm, so he…severed it off, and got a new one? Perhaps this scene would have been too mature for kids, so they ended up cutting both. After all, Brax doesn't have a robot arm in the rest of the movie. Ratchet turns back to Clank and says "You coming?" as Clank reacts with glee.
The nest two scenes are just Blarg filler. The first one has a Blarg taking a selfie, and the next one has a Blarg talking to a warbot concerning the words "Target acquired." This leads into the part where the Blarg deactivate the shields for Ratchet and Clank in the Qwark hologuise. There is also a com scene with Drek and Zed.
The last scene is the not-so infamous "Qwark at the water-cooler scene." Qwark feels conflicted about his new status as "villian" and begins to imitate Ratchet and Dr Nefarious. This leads into the scene where Qwark comes face to face with Ratchet. Cut or not, it was probably very fun for Jim Ward to act out.
There were a few scenes with Drek and Cora that didn't get shown, but nevertheless, it was exciting to see new scenes that didn't make it into the final film. So, what do you think? Should they have kept them? Or was it a good thing to delete them from the movie? And, what was you favorite deleted scene? Comment below, and let us know!
