MTV UK released on Saturday (04) a deleted scene from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The new creature is the Runespoor, a three-headed snake that didn’t make it to the film’s final cut.

“Each of the Runespoor’s heads serves a different purpose. The left head (as seen by the wizard facing the Runespoor) is the planner. It decides where the Runespoor is to go and what it is to do next. The middle head is the dreamer (Runespoors may remain stationary for days at a time, lost in glorious visions and imaginings). The right head is the critic and will evaluate the efforts of the left and middle heads with a continual irritable hissing. The right head’s fangs are extremely venomous. The Runespoor rarely reaches a great age, as the heads tend to attack each other. It is common to see a Runespoor with the right head missing, the other two heads having banded together to bite it off. The Runespoor produces eggs through its mouths, the only known magical beast to do so.” – Extracted from the textbook published in 2001

Directed by David Yates and produced by David Heyman, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was J.K. Rowling’s debut as a screenwriter and will hit the shelves on DVD and Bluray on April 4.
