The Crimes of Grindelwald Deleted Scenes: During the assembly of a film, it is inevitable that some scenes are Deleted from Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald would not be an exception. Luckily for the fans, Eddie Redmayne has confessed what they are (and what they were) their favorite sequences that they eliminated from the prequel and that, maybe, they can see the light in the extras of the Blu-Ray or DVD.
His favorite sequence was at the beginning of the film and it was a conversation between his character, Newt Scamander, and his brother Theseus. The funny scene, in which Pickett appeared drunk, took place in a wizard’s bar after Newt rejected the offer proposed by the Ministry of Magic to become Auror and to hunt down the tenebrous magicians.
“He’s in a rage, and there was a scene where I was in a magical pub in London and my brother was coming and talking,” the actor told Collider. “Pickett [Newt’s Bowtruckle] was busy getting drunk with my butterbeer, it was a very nice scene, but I understood why he did not have to appear,” Redmayne said of the sequence, which further developed the relationship between the brothers.
This was not the only scene eliminated from the second installment of Fantastic Beasts that fascinated the Oscar-winning British actor. He also highlighted the extension of a scene that was developed at the end of the film in which the witch Leta Lestrange, played by Zoe Kravitz, revealed what happened to his brother Corvus.
“I think Zoe Kravitz is sensational in the film, but there was a particular part of the scene in which she revealed her story that fascinated me, she did something that left everyone with their mouths open,” Redmayne said of the interpretation of his partner. “I like Newt ran to her to see if she was okay, I guess it will not have worked with the piece in any way, but it was something surprising to witness,” he said.
After Leta confirms that her little brother Corvus was exchanged for another baby, the scene moves on to a rally organized by Gellert Grindelwald. It is likely that the team responsible for the film cut this fragment to maintain the pulse towards the climax.
The fandom of the Potter Universe will have to wait until the Blu-Ray comes out of The Crimes of Grindelwald, currently in cinemas, to enjoy this unpublished material.
