Status Partially Found

The Harry Potter Films (2001-2011) had a large amount of footage end up on the cutting room floor; unfortunately, only a fraction of it has been released to the public.

The film with the most glaring case is 2007's Order of the Phoenix, which originally had a 3-hour cut but was cropped down to 130 minutes, and only roughly ten minutes of deleted footage can be found on the DVD.

Oh my! That's a lot of deleted scenes!

IIRC there was also a longer version of Bellatrix torturing Hermione in the last movie; originally being a full adaptation of the book's version, it was cut down to keep the movie below an R rating. The scene was discussed in various online sources, though their credibility is questionable at best considering how most of them are online forums rather than any definitive statements from the cast and crew (at least based on my findings). If anyone can find a concrete primary source confirming or denying that the extended scene exists, that'd be nice. I'll also keep looking in the meantime.

I need Rik Mayall as Peeves in my life, right now. Apparently, his scenes were cut because he just kept on making everyone in the crew laugh too much.

You might wanna take this up to anyone of the producers working on the movies or Rowling herself (or even just go on reddit and they might know some sources)

There was an unfilmed scene of Dumbledore's funeral.

It should be noted that although Peeves was cut out as a character in the films, he did appear as a boss in the video game adaptations of the first three films (i.e. Sorcerer's Stone, Chamber of Secrets and Prisoner of Azkaban).
