The most dedicated of Potter-heads might think they know the books and films inside out, but many fans have been left baffled after coming across a new scene that never made it into one of the films.
Christmas is around the corner, and for many people that means one thing: Harry Potter. The films make for perfect yearly rewatches, but as it's been more than 20 years since the world was first introduced to Daniel Radcliffe's Harry in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, you might have thought that you'd seen it all.
But have you seen the scenes that didn't make the film?
One scene that was removed from the final cut of The Philosopher's Stone involved none other than Aunt Petunia; Harry's guardian who had a bad habit of spoiling her biological son.
In the clip, we see Aunt Petunia trying to whip up some eggs for breakfast - no doubt to feed the ever-insatiable Dudley - but she finds something a little unusual about this particular batch.
Any fans of the film will be able to figure out where this scene was meant to slot in, as inside each egg Petunia discovers a letter addressed to Harry.
With her plans for breakfast put on hold, Petunia looks out of the window to spot four owls sitting outside. Given that she's never been all that welcoming about Harry's wizarding abilities, it's not that surprising to hear her scream at the sight and run out of the room.
The scene appears to have been a continuation of the memorable moment in the first film when the Dursley's house is flooded with letters for Harry, each one of them inviting him to start school at Hogwarts.
Evidently, the school's magical admissions team weren't initially going to stop at the letterbox and the chimney in order to get the message across.
Fans of the film have expressed their surprise over the clip, with some left completely baffled over the mere existence of it.
After watching the clip, one person wrote: "You don't understand what it's like to see for the first time Aunt Petunia cracking open eggs and Harry's Hogwart letters are inside, when you've watched this movie since childhood. This is not normal."
A number of viewers found the clip in an extended version of the film, with one saying they were 'dying' at discovering the scene for the first time. The magic just keeps on coming!
