Avatar ImageCourtney Quirke says: Hermione is in 5 out of 8 scenes? What the hell? Avatar Imagepromote_elfish_welfare says: Cool! Deleted scenes :D lol, what's with the whole "Harry and Hermione..." thing? Harry and Hermione discussing the Marauder's Map? Interesting.. Harry and Hermione discuss Ron at the astronomy tower...?? Okayy.. Avatar ImageLuce_depp says: The Maruaders map and Harry and DUmbledore outside the cave is exciting me the most!! I hope the "i am with you Harry" line is in it!!!Avatar Imagenddulac says: I can hear it now . . Remember that map I got in the third movie? Well it turns out it was made by my father, Sirius, Lupin and Pettigrew . . who knew? Well, Harry, if only you'd read "Hogwarts: A History . . " Avatar Imagerons_aus_girl says: oh yay Deleted scenes!!! hmm alot of Harry & Hermione tsk tsk i want more Ron =PAvatar Image-MischiefManaged- says: *00:00:19:07 ("HARRY AND DUMBLEDORE LEAVE CAVE" (SC. 124))* If that scene doesn't contain the "I am not afraid, Harry. I am with you." line, I'm going to strangle David Yates. Proverbially, that is. One of the most touching lines, if not THE most touching line in the entire seven book series, and they left it out from the movie.Avatar Image-MischiefManaged- says: Having said what I said about proverbially strangling Yates (or possibly Kloves or both of them) if the best line of the entire book series if left out even from the deleted scenes, I have to say I'm really looking forward to seeing the deleted scenes. So much so that I might have to **squeeeeee** a little. :) But even more so, I'm looking forward to hopefully one day seeing the Extended Editions of *all* HP movies!Avatar Imagebecmajec says: sounds cool, but it shows just how obsessed kloves really is with hermione haha Avatar ImageScarStruck says: ahhhhh deleted scenes! are awesome! but where is ron, he's in like 2 of the deleted scenes and hermion and harry are in almost all of them.what?! oh well still glad to have 6 minutes and 31 seconds of happyAvatar Imagedeath_eater9994 says: Yay! I love deleted scenes!Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: @ -MischiefManaged- That's exactly what I thought! That deleted scene had BETTER have Dumbledore's line. I can't believe it was left out. When Dumbledore was conjuring fire it was all so quick and then it went right back to Hogwarts. Wth? And what the heck is up with all of the Harry and Hermione scenes? =/Avatar ImageNinnyTreetops says: "Harry and Hermione discuss Ron at the astronomy tower" What the....Avatar ImageEeyore says: I always like the deleted scenes, but I agree with the rest of you. I want that line from Dumbledore in there. The problem is, they need to have the bookend line at the beginning. Those two together show the passing of the torch, as it were, from Dumbledore to Harry, and that Harry understands it to be that.Avatar ImageHermioneRon4ever says: Can't wait to see these! Maybe it'll include a date on the Theme Park? Unless they've already announced it by then... I don't get the Harry and Hermione disscuss Ron at the Astronomy Tower either! Is it a misprint? Like Harry Hermione and Ron disscuss the Astronomy Tower? Hm...Avatar Imagelilyluna says: That sounds SUPER COOOOOOOOOOOL~!!Avatar ImageX-Lillie-Lovegood-X says: What about Greybacks scenes!! Poor guy! his one line You smell Clean lmaooAvatar Imagemadman1277 says: coolAvatar ImagePetra says: Wow... they have deleted loads of scenes where Emma is in it... no matter.. can't wait to see all of them...Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Can't wait to see them!!Avatar ImageBad-Muggle says: That's all the deleted scenes? Please tell me there are more.Avatar Imageccking says: well apparently Hermione got most of her scenes cut. lol she's in 5/8Avatar Imageultraviolet says: theres never enough Draco!Avatar Imagebeewell says: Yes Hermonie and Harry are in a lot of scenes together, even the deleted ones. As everyone will remember, Ron and Lavender were together and Harry didn't hang with them much. Can't wait to see these scenes. Like MischiefManaged, I too was truly upset when that line wasn't in the film. Hopefully it will be in the deleted scenes.Avatar Imagehplove4life says: WOW I WANT TO GO TO THE HARRY POTTER EXIHBIT SO BAD!!!!!!!!! I ALSO WANT TO SEE MORE OF RON!!!!!!! Avatar ImageRJLupin375 says: Those scenes have me super syched, but what about the missing stuff at the attack on teh burrow?Avatar ImageBlatcher914 says: Wow, that seems to be a lot of Hermione action going on that was cut, surprising seeing as there was a lot of Hermione action in the actual cut of the movie too!. Oh well give me anything about the theme park and I'll take it.Avatar ImageSnapesSilverDoe says: no deleted scenes with Severus Snape. How disappointing...Avatar ImageLeeann says: i'm REALLY looking forward to the harry and dumbledore cave scenes that were left out.Avatar ImageLeeann says: oh that's true SnapesSilverDoe! it would've been nice to see more of him.Avatar ImageKissa says: Darn. I thought it said "Harry and Hermione walk through a wall", not "Hogwarts hall". Through a wall would've been so much more fun. LOLAvatar Imagetinagin says: Bring on the extended editions of all the films. Avatar ImageLilleby says: Yay, "CLOUDS GATHER OVER HOGWARTS AS FLITWICK CONDUCTS CHOIR" is the scene "In Noctem" was written to :DAvatar Imageforgetmenot_007 says: COOL !!! :-DAvatar ImageNecrotoxin says: I have yet to buy a Harry Potter DVD because I am waiting for the full set of extended versions. Avatar Imagemaera-kyrie says: So they didn't even have the good scenes to start with. Good to know. x)Avatar Imagedh.vixen says: Looking forward to all the deleted scenes and the look inside the park. Just counted the days until I get my annual pass for IoA and finally seeing how the whole park has come together.Avatar ImageFifi says: COOL! CAN'T WAIT TO BUY IT!Avatar Imageapril_showers says: Hermione Hermione Hermione! Poor Jan/Ron. Where is the Lupin scene at the burrow or the scenes of Greyback people have been talking about? Thank goodness they cut the Flitwtick choir scene. Over a minute and a half of that? Avatar Imageapril_showers says: Hermione Hermione Hermione! Poor Jan/Ron. Where is the Lupin scene at the burrow or the scenes of Greyback people have been talking about? Thank goodness they cut the Flitwtick choir scene. Over a minute and a half of that? Avatar ImageMoose_Starr says: Looking at all the pics at Leaky about the construction at the theme park is real exciting. So, having a feature about it on the DVD is going to be siriusly cool. I only saw the movie one time so, I'll be eager to see it again on DVD, especially with all the deleted scenes.Avatar ImageSmonocco says: Excellent!! I was sure the choir scene would be included, but i can't see the courtyard scene thereAvatar ImageH.P.2009 says: How is there only 6 minuts of deleted scenes!? i have a hard time believeing that those are all the scenes they deleted. there should be more like 20 or 30 minuts like they have for the lord of the rigns. We should have a lot of behind the scenes and makeings of the movies!!!Avatar Imagefireflys_locket says: 00:00:42:16 ("HARRY AND HERMIONE DISCUSS RON AT ASTRONOMY TOWER" (SC. 142)) I guessing that's just more of the little "Ron's okay with it, you know... you and Ginny." thing Hermione says at the end.Avatar Imageselene21 says: can't wait for the dvd, I hope it has more features than OotPAvatar ImageWON_TWO says: I am liking it!Avatar Imagehermionenluna says: awesome!!Avatar ImageMiliMalfoy says: Woohoo! =DAvatar ImageShackShrieker says: YESSS!! The cave scene will finally be finished!!!!Avatar ImageLandorie says: Yes! We get to hear In Noctem in the actual film rather than just the credits.Avatar Imagebettb says: I'll add my voice to the chorus hoping that Dumbledore says, "I am not worried, Harry; I am with you." But I don't see the addition of the start of that conversation, which was in one of the trailers, where Harry says HE'S not worried. Such an important piece of Harry's development!Avatar ImageMatthew Hallows says: too bad we couldn't have Dumbledore's Funeral. In the original vesion, nor the deleted scenes. :/Avatar Imageteam ron says: awesomely awesome cant wai to get it!!!Avatar ImageeiVega says: Well, if the deleted scenes have our precious lines then we can no longer blame Kloves. The fault is the editor and director.Avatar ImageFloridianFlounder95 says: And Hermione manages to get into every scene with more lines than Harry himself while everyone else watches from a distance especially Stalker!Ginny. Sheesh, it's not Hermione Granger and the Half-Blood Prince.Avatar ImageTamyris says: That´s not exciting me at all. Those deleted scenes seem to be so stupid. No wonder it was deleted.Avatar ImageTamyris says: I don´t like the way they are always putting Hermione on the spotlight.Avatar Imagehepburn says: Someone said "sounds cool, but it shows just how obsessed kloves really is with hermione haha". I completely agree with him/her. And more harry & Hermione disscussing at the Astronomy Tower?? What about Ron?Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: A lot of people who claim to have read the book didn't pay much attention with their shock of Harry and Hermione scenes. With Ron busy dating Lavender and Hermione and Ron not talking WHO DO YOU THINK is going to have scenes together? No need to be so jealous of Hermione guys.Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: YOU are the only ones putting Hermione in the spotlight, not the movie.Avatar Imageaxlgirl says: Yay! =DAvatar ImageBritski says: Yay!! I can't wait to see the chorus scene!Avatar ImageFresca says: This is pretty exciting. I hope they showthe Video on the Wizarding World of HP soon.Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: I can not wait!!! I hope I can go to the theme park it sounds awesome!Avatar Imagethundermountain7 says: i can't wait i love deleted scenes.Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I cannot wait to see these deleted scenes! It is only a pity that we will have to wait for an extended edition to be released for them to be incorporated into the original film, where they belong.Avatar ImagexAnaheyy says: Whoa Hermione is all over this ! I wanna see the 'HARRY AND HERMIONE DISCUSS RON..' :DAvatar ImageKimberlyZ says: cant wait to see them!! Avatar ImageMrs.Brisby says: *00:00:42:16 ("HARRY AND HERMIONE DISCUSS RON AT ASTRONOMY TOWER" (SC. 142))* Hmm maybe that's why Ron seems so stand-offish and sulky in that last scene.... o.O Avatar Imagenewwmoon says: yay! Can't wait to watch the film again... or the deleted scenes ;DAvatar ImageJTEL99 says: Darn, I was hoping there would be some with Snape in them, particularly the the "Don't call me coward" scene. Oh well. :DAvatar Imagemini bagel says: Cool, deleted scenes! But tons with Hermione, hmmmmm...Avatar Imagemini bagel says: Cool, deleted scenes! But tons with Hermione, hmmmmm...Avatar ImagecrazyforSeverus says: Only 6 minutes and 31 seconds! That's so sad, I was hoping for more :( Oh well, I'm sure I will love them! Avatar Imagecghambright says: This is so cool!! I love deleted scenes and the sneak peek at the theme park sounds AMAZING! I hope these same features are on the US DVD.Avatar ImageMushMania says: The Marauders Map, eh? could this posibly have been an explanation that they may have missed out in an earlier film?Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: wow they werent kidding when they said they didnt cut much and that there wouldnt be that many deleted scenes. :DAvatar Image42sk8ter says: maybe they thought that if harry was with hermione 2 much, they would probably think that harry & hermione would be a better coupleAvatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: Sounds awesome! I'm always interested to see the deleted scenes... but sometimes I wish that they had kept some of the deleted scenes in the film.Avatar Imagesgreeter8888 says: Poor Flitwick, he used to teach charms and now he just conducts choirs in the movies. Also, I empathize with Steven Kloves. Hermione is my favorite too. :-) Avatar ImageLivelaughlovepotter says: HAHA! Harry & Hermione how many times? Soooomebody's crush has been revealed! I can't wait to see the deleted scenes:]. Is there a midnight release party in some stores for the DVD?Avatar ImageLivelaughlovepotter says: HAHA! Harry & Hermione how many times? Soooomebody's crush has been revealed! I can't wait to see the deleted scenes:]. Is there a midnight release party in some stores for the DVD?Avatar Imagegirlatty1 says: I'll be glad to see any deleted scenes no matter who is in them. I am less interested in the theme park and would rather here more from the actors.Avatar ImageT-Vey says: hmmm.. doesn't look like Snape's line, "IT'S OVER," fits into any of these scenes... OR "I don't need luck- I'll be with Dumbledore!" OR the extended attack on the burrow that we read in the script. I'm not upset... I just find it weird. Perhaps they are saving some scenes down the road for the official extended edition of the DVD (?) Can't wait to hear/see "In Noctem"!!!!!!Avatar ImageT-Vey says: AND DONT FORGET TO KEEP VOTING FOR HBP at spike.com!!! xDAvatar Imageclabwag says: Awesome-sauce, and I get why everyone is pissed of Kloves pretty much over-uses Hermione (and obviously Yates remedied this in editing) but with the plot of this book Ron is with Lavender a whole lot leaving Harry and Hermione at a loose end. I'd never defend Kloves about anything, but that's just fact... Anyway, the final scene "00:00:42:16 ("HARRY AND HERMIONE DISCUSS RON AT ASTRONOMY TOWER" (SC. 142))" makes perfect sense in the context of the film. Remember that cheesy ending so many of us were complaining about? Surely whatever they discuss will be part of that scene, and it will finally explain Ron's complete lack of interest in being there. Maybe I should say I hope... Avatar ImageAveryfan says: I wonder if Film-Ron didn't appear interested in being there because he wasn't there at all in the original script. That ending always looked/felt like a re-shoot to me. So weird to have him not interacting with H/H at all, and to have Book-Ron's lines coming out of Film-Hermione's mouth. Does anyone remember how the sneak preview version of the film ended?Avatar Imagelittlefurlo3 says: i am so excited!Avatar ImageHeartbreakDX says: I'm not surprised.Avatar Imagedobbyis_free says: THIS IS SOO FREAKING AWESOME I CANT WAIT FOR THE DVD TO COME OUT!!!!!!Avatar Imagejuhuudi says: soooooooooo cool!!! cant wait for the deleted scenes they r gonna be awesome!! :) :)Avatar ImageCoolin says: I want them NOW!!! lolAvatar Imagemaimiaa says: way cool. can't wait for it, ooh and the deleted scenes?! yesss :DAvatar ImageMosu says: probably the harry and hermione discussing ron at the astronomy tower is an extended scene of ron being ok with harry and ginny going out and "snogging" <3 :D or maybe them saying that how ron will be when he's with them????? idk I JUST WANT TO SEE IT ALREADY!!! :PAvatar Imagestarlesswinter says: Such imaginative titles for those scenes!.....;)Avatar Imagedeadtree says: I'm excited about the deleted scenes of course (especially the extended cave scenes) but I'm doubly excited about the theme park info. What a treat!Avatar ImageJaneMarple9 says: They all sound great!Avatar Imagensa says: great news.u just don't want to miss anything abut harry potter.Avatar Imagezephy_stephy says: Holy Harry and Hermione scenes... I'm kinda glad that they cut that many out. But I'm excited to see them none the less! Avatar Imagenikki75 says: looking forward to it Avatar ImageCarol Carvalho says: I don't think I'll be buying extended editions of the movies.... it is going to suck! Avatar Imagedcsbelle says: Well, we'll get to see if those deleted scenes were worth anything but I'm more interested in seeing a preview of the theme park!Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: Some of them look like they will be really cool, but I am not holding my breath. Some of the earlier comments have already summed up my feelings. Avatar Imageerinvandzura says: sounds amazing, can;t wait!Avatar Imageqwientje says: wow souds super! I can't wait to see the deleted scenes. Like the one with the map. That should be awesome!Avatar ImageProsophules says: I was expecting more Harry-Ginny scenes, but apparently Hermione is with Harry all of the time.Avatar ImageWulfricBrian says: It'll be interesting to see how much plot exposition was cut... The HARRY JOINS RON ...IN THE COMMON ROOM bit is probably after Sectumsempra, when we missed any sign of Harry being sorry for almost killing Draco. I'm hoping those 40 seconds will restore that.Avatar ImageBewareoftheNargles says: Urgh why so much Hermione and so little Ron? And I'm talking in all the most recent movies. Avatar Imagemakochibi says: when will the DVD be released? I never had a chance to go see it in theaters. Schedules just didn't allow for it. :( I wished I could have seen it.Avatar Imagelonerwolfygirl says: I heard it's due in the US Dec 8th? Not sure if that's a final date though.Avatar ImageFigment says: So looking forward to this!Avatar Imagemjkalldaway says: awesomeAvatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: Six measly minutes? I thought for sure that one of the deleted scenes would talk about what the Horcruxes might actually be rather than the vague 'they could be anything' as currently released. Bah! Such a disappointment!Avatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: And, I was hoping for the Harry and Ginny have found their soul mate *running across the common room* kiss. I am not worried, I am with you. Don't call me a cowardAvatar Imagesunlitdays says: ooh im interested to see when harry and hermione discuss ron. and somebody made an interesting point (it mightve been the pottercasters) about why ron was so removed this movie and it mightve been to start the tention of ron thinking theres a thing between hermione and harry and that she doesnt want him. so this scene looks particularly interestingAvatar Imagepipkin3 says: Well I hope this years extra disc is better than the OOTP's. Can't believe they only gave us a few deleted scenes, a very short studio tour and a documentary that told us what we already know. I hope there is an interview with Jo on again this time.Avatar ImageAveryfan says: It'd be funny if there was a special feature where JKR just came on the screen and said, "Everybody just CHILL! The last movies are going to ROCK!"Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: wheeee! i can't wait!Avatar ImageDunedainsith says: Grr, it does not look like they are gonna include Hermione getting punched in the face with the Weasley's joke telescope...and it does not look like there will be anymore Draco scenes....Draco is one of the most important characters in this movie!Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: deleted scenes are so funny, i can't wait!Avatar ImageDawna says: I love deleted scenes!Avatar ImageAlice Weasley says: I'm already excited for these deleted scenes, but when does it come out?!?Avatar ImageJananae says: "00:01:39:22 ("CLOUDS GATHER OVER HOGWARTS AS FLITWICK CONDUCTS CHOIR" (SC. 125-129))" I. WANT. TO. SEE. THIS. SCENE. SO. BAD. This is supposed to be the part where In Noctem is sung in the background (at least, that's what I heard).Avatar ImageTheGriff says: Thats quite a lot of Hermione and Harry, poor Ron. Looks like the scenes where Harry is obsessed with Draco and does his detective things where all filmed but taken out. The feature on the theme park should be good.Avatar Imagemjkalldaway says: really coolAvatar Imagehalfbloodprincesss says: i agree with @ -MischiefManaged- if i don't hear "i am not afraid harry, i am with you" somebody is going to hear about it and maybe a lot of somebodys >=(Avatar Imagehewy says: Why can't they just put the scenes back in where they belong and give us the movie the way it should have been??? They delete scenes for the home viewing as it is.Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: why so many harry/hermione. they forgot the bestiest character ever!!!! RON!!!!! and then hermione is the second bestiest of course =DAvatar ImagePhylis says: Looking forward to the release and seeing the deleted scenes.Avatar Imagelonerwolfygirl says: Can't wait!Avatar ImagehellomotoCOOP says: ill by the blu ray cant waitAvatar ImageBrosia23 says: I cannot wait to add this to my collection. I am all a twitter.Avatar Imagemuggle..andproudofit says: * claps hands together many times* i LOVE deleted scenes! i so cannot wait untill christmas!( that s when i'm getting it! ( and um what 's with the Harry /Hermione thing ????)Avatar ImageDelilah3136 says: I am SO excited! The more bonus features the better! I can't get enough of this movie:]Avatar ImageWingardium Leviosa says: Hahaha, Harry and Hermione are the focus on most of these!
