Beauty and the Beast brought the characters from the animated original to life on the big screen, but there was one exception that didn't make the cut.
Now thanks to a new deleted scene from the film, fans can finally meet Monsieur Toilette. You guessed it, he's a toilet, one who was going to be played by Stephen Merchant (via EW).
The new scene features an up close look at his character as Lefou runs into a bathroom during the assault on the castle. Once Lefou discovers the toilet is alive he runs out covered in water, ending the clip with a loud scream. The clip is humorous on its own, but it wouldn't have added anything to that particular sequence, so it probably worked out best that it was left on the cutting room floor.
You can watch the deleted scene in the video above.
Monsieur Toilette doesn't have any speaking lines in this clip, but there is supposedly another deleted scene that shows the character in human form. That will most likely also be on the Blu-ray edition of the film when it hits later this month.
You can view the official synopsis for Beauty and the Beast below.
Beauty and the Beast is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle.
