Tina and Queenie Sing Ilvermorny’s School Song in Fantastic Beasts Deleted Scene

Among the 11 deleted scenes that are included in the Ultra HD Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray,Blu-ray Combo Packs and 2-disc DVD Special Edition releases of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, there is a neat scene in which Tina and Queenie sing the Ilvermorny’s School Song. Originally, the scene would have took place immediately after Queenie and Newt debate which wizarding school is better: Ilvermorny or Hogwarts.

Fun fact: the song was actually written by Alison Sudol, the actress who portrays the fun-loving, strudel-making Queenie.

Check it out in the video above, as well as a trailer for the Blu-ray release.

There are growing dangers in the wizarding world of 1926 New York. Something mysterious is leaving a path of destruction in the streets, threatening to expose the wizarding community to the No-Majs (American for Muggles), including the Second Salemers, a fanatical faction bent on eradicating them. And the powerful, dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, after wreaking havoc in Europe, has slipped away…and is now nowhere to be found.

Unaware of the rising tensions, Newt Scamander arrives in the city nearing the end of a global excursion to research and rescue magical creatures, some of which are safeguarded in the magical hidden dimensions of his deceptively nondescript leather case. But potential disaster strikes when unsuspecting No-Maj Jacob Kowalski inadvertently lets some of Newt’s beasts loose in a city already on edge—a serious breach of the Statute of Secrecy that former Auror Tina Goldstein jumps on, seeing her chance to regain her post as an investigator. However, things take an ominous turn when Percival Graves, the enigmatic Director of Magical Security at MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), casts his suspicions on both Newt and Tina.

Now allied, Newt and Tina, together with Tina’s sister, Queenie, and their new No-Maj friend, Jacob, form a band of unlikely heroes, who must recover Newt’s missing beasts before they come to harm. But the stakes are higher than these four outsiders—now branded fugitives—ever imagined, as their mission puts them on a collision course with dark forces that could push the wizarding and No-Maj worlds to the brink of war.
