Describing it as “the most beautiful scene, tender and very funny,” Yates says the scene saw Jacob returning home to his apartment after failing to secure the loan for his Bakery, where he relays the sad news to his fiancee, Mildred. She then hands him back her ring and walks away. Yates explains that they got rid of it as the audience “didn’t need a reason to fall in love with Jacob,” since Dan Fogler gave such a great performance.
The second scene that was cut involved Jacob, Queenie, Newt and Tina, when they all enter Newt’s briefcase. Yates had Alison Sudol write an alma mater song for Ilvermonry, and the scene involved her and Tina teaching the song to Newt and Jacob. Ultimately, though, the song was cut because “At that point in the story, there’s a lot of stuff going on outside,” and it seemed a little strange that all four would sit down to sing a song together.
Of course, there’s still a chance that we might see either or both of those scenes on Blu-ray or DVD, and we might also get a look at a deleted scene involving Credence Barebone, too. In fact, Yates insists that all the deleted scenes were well worth watching, and were only cut because the story flowed better without them in. So, it sounds as though we might expect a long list of extras when Fantastic Beasts comes out on home release.
