Here’s why Netflix’s ‘Bandersnatch’ contains scenes that you’ll never be able to access

Charlie Brooker has confirmed that Black Mirror movie Bandersnatch contains hidden footage – but it’s unlikely that you will ever discover it.

The choose-your-own-adventure has kept fans captivated since it was released in December 2018, with new pathways and endings being constantly discovered.

But creator Charlie Brooker says that there’s a whole load of hidden footage too. However, he’s been unable to find it – which means that your chances of doing so are therefore pretty slim.

Explaining how the scenes were an “accident”, Brooker told The Wrap: “We only can’t access them because we made changes to quite a few things and as a result — and technically, because of the way it’s been put together — is like one big timeline with all the footage on it and it sort of jumps to points along that timeline.

Black Mirror interactive episodes

‘Bandersnatch’ was the first interactive episode from ‘Black Mirror’

“So there was a point after which, I think, we delivered [and] finalised that timeline, where we then altered something to do with the interactive path, which meant that now one or two sections were redundant.”

It comes after Netflix revealed yet another secret ending last week.
“Think you’ve seen everything there is to see in Bandersnatch? try picking up the family photo, ~twice~,” wrote Netflix on Twitter.

According to those who have chosen to pick up the photo twice, there’s quite a nice surprise.

You’ll be able to see a cameo from Bandersnatch author Jerome F. Davies – who suddenly appears in Stefan’s dream and makes him go back and pick up his book instead.
