Harry Potter fans bewildered after seeing Harry and Hagrid riding the tube in rare scene
| Last updated
Harry Potter fans have been left baffled by a deleted scene showing the titular wizard himself riding the London Underground with Hagrid.
The scene itself was set to be in the first film Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone, but it never made the cut.
However, it was included in the extended version which initially aired in 2004, and fans finally got to see the bizarre yet hilarious moment play out.
As the pair make their way to Diagon Alley, they decide to jump on the tube, which I think we can all agree would be an absolute nightmare for someone of Hagrid's stature.
But despite opting to use the Central Line, the carriage is actually pretty empty - aside from one woman who looks suspiciously at the pair as they discuss Hagrid's (Robbie Coltrane) appreciation of dragons.
The topic of conversation arises when Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) reads out his first year student checklist, which requires him to obtain three sets of robes, a wand and a 'pair of dragon hide gloves'.
"Do they mean from a real dragon?" he asks, to which Hagrid quips, "Well they don't mean a penguin, do they?"
The Hogwarts keeper then admits that he'd 'love a dragon', describing them as 'vastly misunderstood' creatures.
After watching the deleted scene for the first time, fans weren't sure what to make of it. I mean, who can find a row of empty seats on the Central Line these days, amirite?
Taking to Twitter, one wrote: "For the first time in our lives Bella and I just watched a scene in Sorcerer’s Stone where Harry and Hagrid are on the tube before going to the leaky cauldron and we’re???? CONFUSED??????"
Another said, "The extended version of Harry Potter 1 has a scene with Hagrid on the tube. Wtf!"
"I mean Harry and Hagrid are on the tube WHAAAAT IS GOING ON HERE," said a third, while a fourth wrote, "Keep wondering, while going on the tube, how Hagrid got inside. It's so narrow..."
A fifth said: "In Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Hagrid is 'twice as tall as a normal man and at least FIVE TIMES as wide'. They go on the tube."
Yes, it seems like people were most baffled by the logistics of the whole thing - which is ridiculous when you consider the film is about wizards and magic, but there you go.
