Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 just crossed $1.3 billion worldwide, and fans will be looking ahead to the DVD and Blu-ray release sometime in November.
Following the release of the film director David Yates said “we saved all the bits that we cut out, and we’re going to put that on the DVD extras”, and now those extras/deleted scenes have been revealed.
00:01:09:10 (SC 184 – SHELL COTTAGE) (DELETED SCENE)
00:01:43:09 (SC 185 – HARRY & LUNA AT DOBBY’S GRAVE ON THE BEACH) (DELETED SCENE)
00:00:47:17 (SC 215 – HOG’S HEAD) (DELETED SCENE)
00:00:26:00 (SC 229E – MARBLE STAIRCASE – HARRY AND GINNY) (DELETED SCENE)
00:00:26:07 (SC 242 – WOODEN BRIDGE) (DELETED SCENE)
00:00:18:03 (SC 245 – HOGWARTS BATTLEMENTS) (DELETED SCENE)
00:00:37:02 (SC 274 – SLYTHERIN DUNGEONS) (DELETED SCENE)
00:00:18:20 (SC 346G – MARBLE STAIRCASE – RON & HERMIONE) (DELETED SCENE)
From those titles we can work out what we’ll be seeing. Previously Yates said “there’s an extended scene on the beach with Ron disguised (before he gets to the bank, there’s a lovely little interchange with him and Bellatrix Lestrange) which will be the ‘Shell Cottage’ scene. ‘Hogs Head’ will likely be a longer version of Aberforth and Harry talking before they enter Hogwarts. ‘Wooden Bridge’ may be Neville and Seamus working together to destroy the bridge as instructed by Professor McGonagall (Boom? BOOM!)
‘Hogwarts Battlements’ could be the scene pictured above where Voldemort asks Harry “why do you live?”, as seen in the first trailer. Yates said Voldemort wouldn’t stand around talking when he’s finally got Harry in his grasp, so they deleted it. ‘Slytherin Dungeons’ is an obvious one, with Argus Filch locking the Slytherin’s up (followed by an explosion as seen in another trailer).
The cast have also spoken about scenes they shot but weren’t included in the film, such as Hagrid fighting Death Eaters, Flitwick duelling Nagini, an extended battle scene in the Great Hall and an extended ‘victory’ speech by Voldemort. These may be on the Blu-ray, or possibly saved for future Ultimate Editions.
