Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - Deleted Scene
but why do they delete all the scenes showing ron as he actually was in the book?
Potentially unpopular opinion? I actually liked that they took out Eponine and replaced her with the Bishop. In the stage musical I felt that they used Eponine more for the audience than for Valjean, which is fine! But film allows for a bit more intimacy and the audience experience isn’t the same as it is during a stage production. The Bishop makes more sense for VALJEAN (he barely knew Eponine), and I felt it really worked.
I definitely agree. The MOMENT that the Bishop walked out on screen, I just started sobbing. it was so very poignant.
maybe this is just me, but the fact that the Bishop is played by the original Jean Valjean makes this part even more beautiful.
Everything has come full circle, and the past can now rest.
Or something poetic of that ilk.
If only we could see the endless string of consequences that result from our smallest actions. But we can’t know better until knowing better is useless. And as I walked back to give Takumi’s note to the Colonel, I saw that I would never know. I would never know her well enough to know her thoughts in those last minutes, would never know if she left us on purpose. But the not-knowing would not keep me from caring, and I would always love Alaska Young, my crooked neighbor, with all my crooked heart.
