Nine-year-old Celine Tam returned to the “America’s Got Talent” semi-finals, singing “How Far I’ll Go” from the Disney movie “Moana.”

With the Oscar-contending animated hit heading home (the Digital HD version arrives Tuesday while the Blu-ray/DVD hits shelves on March 7), Yahoo Movies has an exclusive deleted scene (watch it above) that shows how the title heroine evolved as a character. As they set up the clip, directors Ron Clements (the one with the beard) and John Musker reveal where it originally had fit in the film.
