Half-Blood Prince Deleted Scene

The Italian arm of Warner Brothers has unveiled the first deleted scene from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. This news comes to us from the fine folks at Mugglenet, and it is most welcome on this day where there has been very little to geek out about. I’m not sure that I’m as gaga about Alan Rickman’s performance here as are the kids at The Leaky Cauldron—they call it “breathtaking”—but I do think that this scene should not have been excised from the final cut.

What about you?
