In the theatrical release, Korben Dallas initially opens his door after hearing the door chime. He looks into the monitor, sees the empty hallway, opens the door, and then almost gets mugged. This scene was edited for the ABC presentation.
In the English version when the Mondoshawans come to the pyramid in Egypt the professor asks: 'Are you German?' In the German version he asks 'Are you here from Earth?'
In the theatrical version the first time Leeloo is revealed (in the lab machine), her breasts are visible. In TV versions a well placed control panel maintains her modesty (blocks the view of her breasts).
In the version televised Jan 8, 2000 in the U.S. on the ABC network, not only was the film edited for language, nudity, violence, and to fit the screen (as is standard), but also every one of the McDonald's Golden Arches in the early chase scene was digitally removed.
