iTunes Releases Deleted “Crimes of Grindelwald” Scene

The first deleted scene from Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is here! iTunes posted the 50-second unreleased Leta Lestrange scene on Twitter today, and it features the familiar-looking ballroom scene Fantastic Beasts fans were wondering about after its inclusion in the trailer but absence from the film.



As seen above, the deleted scene features Leta watching an elegant dancer perform at what appears to be a magical party or banquet. An unidentified character turns to Leta, saying, “Congratulations, Leta. Your brother lives. We all truly believe it,” in response to the speculations claiming that Credence Barebone, a survivor of fatal circumstances, is her little brother. Leta says nothing and continues to watch the performance, the spinning dancer now surrounded by a translucent, flowing form. It transitions into the shape of what fans know to be Corvus Lestrange sinking below the surface of the sea. Leta’s boggart resembles this identical form in her flashback scene at Hogwarts, and she is haunted by it once again when she confesses her long-held secret at the Lestrange mausoleum. Leta looks on, troubled, as the clip fades.

Do you think we will see more of this sequence in the deleted scenes? Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is available for digital download on iTunes tomorrow!
