Here is a petition to release an extended edition of the film on home video:
Mooseboy018 has compiled this nice list of scenes that were shown in promotional and tie-in materials but for whatever reason were not included in the final film.
LINK FAIL FIXED! All links now working.

2. The Dragon Spirit telling Aang about Sozin's Comet.
3. Katara losing her necklace and Aang getting it back.
4. the fortuneteller/medium
5. Sokka calling Katara a "baby-bender"
6. Aang asks Katara about her necklace in Southern Water Tribe
7. Sokka asks Yue if his grandmother asked what would she say her feelings were for him, and she says he is her best friend.
1. The rest of the intro...
2. the dancing villagers
Personally I think it would be great if they could reintegrate most if not all of this material, because it all sounded like good stuff and as someone who was greatly disappointed by the film I'd be happy to buy an extended cut of it if it proves to be an improvement over the theatrical one. I look forward to your discussions.
