A new deleted scene set to be included among the bonus features of the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" BluRay DVD set has been released online and shows a very tender and touching scene between Harry (Dan Radcliffe) and Aunt Petunia (Fiona Shaw).  The clip, which runs approximately one minute long, takes place at the now empty Privet Drive home of the Dursleys before they must flee from Death Eaters.  To view the deleted scene, please click here.

Cool. But would Aunt Petunia really say that, especially to Harry? I don’t know… Maybe that’s just how she really feels.

I hope that, down the road apiece, they will release three-hour versions of all the films in the series, to satisfy those of us who have read all the books and want to see more of them on screen. That would include added footage of the Dursleys, Hermione’s ongoing fight for elf rights, more of the Quidditch match that opens GOF, and so on.
I’m saying all this with the knowledge that, though they may not have filmed every chapter in this book (ditto 1-6), they do cut out miles of footage to get each movie down to a commercially-viable length. And they don’t get rid of the extra exposures. Point is, after DHII, there will be no more new films to release. But there may be newer, longer versions of the originals. I hope I’m right- so does everyone else who loves HP! LOL

This is a fabulous scene! I do hope it gets added to the movie for the Ultimate Collector’s Edition. I know it’s not exactly cannon, but it would have been nice to get a little more than an arial glimpse of the Dursleys leaving Privet Drive.

I started crying wehen I saw that! I always felt that Petunia should had admitted to Harry hwo she felt, that she did love her sister despite her lealousy and she most likely had feelings for Harry, no matter how she tried to sqaush them down :(

as with all yates’ other edits, this was cut for tone. personally, i’m not that bothered, because i think the scene is a little too on-the-nose. i prefer the more subtle interaction in the book.

Why did they cut this?! Ugh!! Character development just bites in the movies, Dursley’s especially. Other than the dementor thing in five, which I felt was more about what the animators could do, I think the last time we really saw any developmental AT ALL was movie three!

And this scene aside, I was really disappointed not seeing Dudley shake Harry’s hand. Give the character some redemption!

And suddenly the viewers of the movie find this other side of Petunia that we see from Snape’s memories when she was a little girl and loved her sister. I really wish that would be in the movie ;/

I always thought that there was more to the goodbye on Petunia’s part, but Jo let that up to us to decide if we think she fells bad about her sisters death, and never seeing Harry again. I always felt that she was upset about Lilly’s death because of the fact that she took Harry in. If she never wanted to do with her sister anymore she would have never took him in. In book 7 I thought that she wanted to say something to Harry, but she never did. I’m glad that the movie gave her some say.

Is this the scene where Harry and Dudley shake hands and Dudley thanks Harry for saving him from the Dementors.

Moving scene, what a great actress Fiona Shaw is. Can we please have extended editions of ALL the films someday Warner Brothers, and ones that you can actually buy in the UK. Remember the UK WB?

Awww why did they delete that? It was a very different angle of Aunt Petunia

As much as I like the scene, I have to agree with the others who feel it doesn’t belong in the movie. Although we (as passionate readers of the books) can see why it belongs, others who may only watch the movies or have a casual relationship with the books wouldn’t understand why she’s had such a change of heart. I like the way JKR left the Dursley’s leaving – the reader can imagine Petunia saying something heartfelt or not…
