Watch some of the Deleted Scenes from Jurassic World!

Over the weekend, a number of fans gained access to the Jurassic World 'Digital' Blu-Ray release and were able to watch the film in 1080p HD as well as the Special Features that are included.
Apparently a Brazilian based fan's iTunes allowed him to purchase the release early, and since then a number of other people have been able to watch it.
While I personally would have liked to wait for a physical copy of the Blu-Ray to first see the deleted scenes and the other special features, the deleted scenes have been upload to YouTube which you can see below.
However, not all of the deleted scenes seem to be on the Blu-Ray, as Colin himself has spoken about other deleted scenes in interviews. The ones included however show a bit of an extended look at Zach and Gray's time in the restricted zone, as well as Owen's and Claire's.
I think a lot of these scenes were wrongly cut, one of my first thoughts after seeing the movie was that it would have benefited from some breathing time; a calmer scene in the jungles to further explore our main characters. I also thought that Zach and Gray could have spent a whole night in the restricted zone and learned a little more about the old park.
What do you think? Do you like them? Do you think the film benefited from them being cut? Let us know in the comments section below!
