Last November during the press tour for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, director David Yates teased fans with the idea of an Ilvermorny school song scene – and that it was sung by the film’s leading ladies Katherine Waterston and Alison Sudol.
Indeed it was shot but unfortunately cut from the film. Now, the full scene is available online.
The deleted scene will appear on the newly announced Fantastic Beasts DVD / Blu-ray, which debuted at A Celebration of Harry Potter over the weekend.
The now-anticipated scene comes directly after Queenie (Alison Sudol) delves into finding out about Newt’s (Eddie Redmayne) former childhood sweetheart, Leta Lestrange.
As a (major) fan of the movie and the character’s, I couldn’t help but notice Newt’s adorable reaction to Tina singing alongside her sister as several of the beast’s gathered round to hear the song – if that’s not the look of love, then I don’t know what is.
Watch the deleted scene, along with the DVD / Blu-ray trailer below:
‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ will be available on 4K, 3D, Blu-ray, DVD & VOD on March 27th or on Digital Download March 13.
