I wish they kept this in, this is the emotional payoff we’ve been waiting for.

That would have been a really great scene! The way they left in the movie was too quick and didn’t give any indication that the Durselys had changed.
It’s really too bad they cut it.

I had hoped to see something like this in themovie. Don’t they know what huge fans these movies have? I personally would have loved the movie to be longer!

It really shows another side of her. Like the end of the Deathly Hallows book did in the Prince’s Tale when Lily and Petunia were little. Awww if they put it in EVERYONE would have seen Petunia at her best:(

I cannot wait to see the cut scene with Harry and Dudley! This was perfect, I’m really sorry they lost it.

I think I would have preferred something in between this and what was in movie. The movie is a bit too rushed, with no hint of any sort of reconciliation but this is almost a verbal one – I love the feeling of the scene in the book, where she just hesitates – I think it’s much more powerful… like, maybe this is what she wants to say, but realizes that after all these years of neglect, it won’t seem genuine? Or maybe that she just can’t accept that she really does miss Lily and has been so blinded by jealousy. All in all, I’m glad they cut it – though it’s a great scene and better than nothing, because the timing/pace would have been really thrown off, think about what’s going on when they show what they do in the movie – Hermione’s just left her parents, it’s very emotional and intense, and they show Ron and Harry both preparing to leave, all while playing music that keeps that intense feeling going. To insert this in in the middle of that would have ruined the feel of those scenes. Hermione’s goodbye was much more intense, it was a good idea to have Ron and Harry’s goodbyes just tag along with hers. Just my opinion, though.

BTW, has anyone else seen the new picture from the movie?? AWESOME. I’m surprised Leaky hasn’t posted it yet. I emailed it to them in case they haven’t seen it. Hopefully it gets posted soon.

Again, why did they not add the scene, one minute would not have made that much difference in the film. The added enough other JUNK scenes that were not in the book (eg. burning of the Burrrow) so why not this one??? And I totally agree with @PaskuniusSenus regarding the length of the films and the hope for longer ones with the deleted scenes.

I’m glad that they cut it. That was entirely made up by Steven Kloves. It was touching and I’m sure at some level it was true for Petunia, but she never said such a thing. She couldn’t even bring herself to address Harry as they were leaving. I wish they would’ve kept the whole Dursley scene as it was in the book.

Sometimes I wish they would show more of the books in the movie….for one thing Dudley became civil with Harry….and they didn’t show it….I wish they hadn’t cut this scene

Guess That Book

He wore a dashing, plumed hat on his long curly hair, and a tunic with a ruff, which concealed the fact that his neck was almost completely severed. He was pale as smoke, and Harry could see right through him to the dark sky and torrential rain outside.
