‘Lilo And Stitch’

Lilo & Stitch, Disney’s cartoon of 2002, was edited after the devastating attacks. Jumba’s red spaceship flying in the mountains where not supposed to be red and fly in the wildness.

In the original script, it was a commercial plane flown near the skyscrapers in a city. Due to the dramatic events, the scene was completely changed.

Here’s you can compare this original footage with the edited one.

“Sex and the City”

The fourth season,  2002, included shots of the Twin Towers, but all of them were removed due to Understanding. The footage of the towers in the opening credits was replaced by the picture of the Empire State Building.

Spider-Man, 2002

Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man had been also influenced by events. In particular, it was one scene in the trailer that needed to be changed. Spider-Man catches a helicopter with bank robbers in a giant web between the twin towers.

The scene was edited and the official teaser was removed from the media platforms. However, you can still find the piece of footage in low-quality videos on Youtube:

Friends

The third episode of “Friends” season 8 previously included the scene Chandler makes a joke about bombs at the airport, which leads to him and Monica being arrested and interrogated.

True Lies 2

James Cameron refused to work on his plans for a sequel to True Lies starring Schwarzenegger after the attacks because “terrorism wasn’t funny anymore,” as he stated.
