Most of us have seen this piece of concept art. In this earlier version of the story, Nick escaped from jail, and Judy chased him through Little Rodentia. This scene was later revised to be Weaselton instead of Nick, but given how well-developed this concept art is, many have wondered how this scene was originally going to go down. But, sadly, it was not included in the official Deleted Scenes, and we thought we would have to wait forever to see it. If ever.
But what’s this?! A heavenly messenger, descending from Disney on high, bearing a wondrous gift!
Joaquin Baldwin, one of the layout artists on the movie, released the (unpolished, unfinished) scene as part of his Layout Demo Reel!
Joaquin, you are amazing for doing this! Thank you so much!
Check it out after the break!
Nifty! Judy is pretty badass in this scene. Nick is running scared! And OOOOHHH that road rash to the face. Poor Nick!
Huh… fortunately this scene was deleted.. cuz i feel sorry for Nick T^T
Seeing this new unseen scenes it's like finding a shining gem, really astounding
This is an amazing find! Judy really showed off her grit and determination in this and even the screenwriters seemed to have Nick take quite a beating in the original drafts of the movie. Maybe that is why everything thinks of him as the poor whipping post for the movie.
Don't remember seeing this, but he also released the animatic version of the Taming Party scene that was featured in storyboard format on the blu-ray edition.
Oh I miss this movie so much, I would've loved to see this version so much, I'm such a drama lover
The more I see of the original concept, the more I want it to come to life!
