FANTASTIC BEASTS deleted scene gives us Ilvermorny’s school song!
In the deleted scene, which has been discussed by the cast throughout promoting the film but didn’t make the final version, the wizarding school conversation between Newt, Jacob, Queenie, and Tina turns into a bit of a show. Queenie proves her loyalty to Ilvermorny by singing the school song and though Tina is a little reluctant at first, she eventually gives in and sings along.
We understand why the scene was shortened: The singing doesn’t really fit in with the more somber, unsure tone at the end of the film. But we’ve got to admit, it’s pretty adorable!
Surely the scene is especially charming for fans who know Alison Sudol aka Queenie from her musical career under the stage name A Fine Frenzy.
The deleted scene will likely be featured on the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them home video release via Digital HD on March 7 and Blu-Ray coming March 28, 2017.
