Hi people. Some time ago i found this 2 pics on the net taken during the record of The Miracle promo video

What I find curious is these photos is that only Freddie, Roger, Brian and John appear in the images. There is no evidence of the kids there, even the mini Roger's drum isn't on the scene.

It is possible that they have recorded an alternate version of this clip with only the original members of Queen, which stay on the vaults, or they were just posing for pictures?

Sorry for the bad english

More than likely, the band was filmed a few times going through the song without the kids so as to get some good inserts of the "adult Queen" to intercut with the "mini Queen." There's a shot of Brian where it zooms into him and he smiles before it jumps back to "young Freddie." I don't think they ever planned to have a Queen-only version, given how much work went into auditioning and casting the four boys. From the 'making of' footage and interviews, they seemed pretty locked into that idea.

We know Queen were on set and directly involved, so another possibility is that the band ran through the song for the benefit of the kids, to give them an idea of their interaction and how the adults would've done it. Remember, the kids were cast separately from each other and it's one thing to be good at playing Brian, but it's a step up to get the four boys to interact as band, look natural AND look like mini-Queen. It would also give the kids a few more ideas about how to move and what not to do.

Just a thought.

The kids had to do multiple takes themselves as we see young Freddie in about 4 different costumes of varying eras.  Of course, the band would also have done a few takes, as Rhyeking said, to be the raw basis of their to-be-intercut footage.

Probably unlikely that they ever edited a complete video of just the band's footage, but it's possible that the raw film exists of the various full takes from just the band, and if so, perhaps several angles from multiple cameras used. 

An interesting thought for sure.  I'd love to see raw footage / outtakes from any of Queen's videos.  We got to see just a few seconds of outtake clips from CLTCL on the new Days Of Our Lives documentary... very fun.

Probably a quick video shot to show the kids choreographers what to do in the end segment. Things just don't match up between queen and the counterpart kids by accident, there would have had to have been something for the kids to rehearse their parts off.

Another thing that seems to be in the DoRo goldmine.....

I thought the Days Of Our Lives doc had loads of video outtakes?

I never saw this, great stuff!
Now if ony the Queen-version would appear somewhere!!

This stuff should be in the vaults somewhere, and would be great extras on upcoming releases.
(I dont know why i even hope for this ;)
