Eventually, the song and scene got cut, but those who buy the Blu-ray or Digital HD will get to see it!

Disney Movies Anywhere did release a sneak peek at the deleted scene featuring the song. But as director Rob Marshall said: he, Streep, Sondheim and James Lapine all decided that the movie was stronger without the song.
My thoughts: incredible! As a huge Meryl Streep fan, of course I appreciate it just for her performance. But even more so, the way Streep brings out the subtext – the Witch’s longing and uncertainty, trying to convince herself – really blows me away. She’s an amazing actress, as always, and this scene just proves it again.
