The world of Harry Potter refuses to stop surprising us. A never-seen-before deleted scene has been excavated from the franchise and it has to do not with the boy wizard, but Hogwarts’ favorite bad boy.
Originally filmed for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, the scene depicts Draco Malfoy (played by Tom Felton) aiding Harry briefly in his final battle against Lord Voldemort—counting as a moment of redemption for Harry’s blonde academic rival.
It's made pretty clear that Draco is unsure of where his loyalties lie; his reluctance to join the Dark Side and his clear discomfort at that hug from Voldemort visibly demonstrate his inability to make up his mind. We've been hoping all along that Draco was one of the good ones... and this clip proves that he really might be on Potter's side. Check it out below:
So why did filmmakers cut this touching scene? One explanation says those who didn't read the books might not have realized that, through a twisted series of events, Harry was already the master of the Elder wand; if you recall, he'd disarmed Malfoy earlier in the last installment. (Adding to the confusion, Voldemort killed Snape under the assumption that Snape, who'd killed Dumbledore, was master to the wand.) The scene might have suggested to non-readers that Malfoy was lending Harry the Elder wand.
Regardless of why the movie's producers chose to leave the scene out, we'll let ourselves believe that Draco is just a misunderstood boy; one we'll always hold near and dear to our hearts.
