Harry Potter Books vs. Movies (Top 10 List)

The Harry Potter films are incredible to say the least however The books are far superior to the films the films of course had to cut a lot out of the story when turning the novel into a script in this video I’m going to list 10 things they cut or change when adapting the books to the big screen Number 10 Harry and Voldemort’s I color in the books Voldemort’s eyes were red which is not the case in the films although They did keep his snake-like nose Which I was happy about as for Harry his eyes were a rather important detail as they were Identical to his mother’s green eyes They messed this up even more in the films as Daniel Radcliffe who plays Harry Potter has blue eyes While the actress that plays Lily has brown eyes they make reference to their eyes being the same colour Several times throughout the series, but they’re not you have a size number 9 Ron’s first year of Quidditch in the films the first time we see Ron try out for his house team was in a sixth year But the first time he actually tries out is in his fifth year He decides to try out after his parents bought him a new broomstick his reward for becoming a prefect He starts out awful, but ends up leading his team to victory and winning the Quidditch Cup He also turns the Slytherin smocking song Weasley is our King into a triumphant song for all Gryffindor’s number eight Spew or S.P.E.W This stands for the Society for the promotion of elfish welfare this was an organization that Hermione started to liberate house elves in the fourth book she gave out Badges in the Gryffindor common room in return for them donating a bit to the foundation She also left clothes around the common room that she had knitted hoping an elf would pick it up and would be free but all it led to was Dobby being the only one who cleaned the common room as the other elves were offended number seven the Incomplete Weasley family in the films were introduced to six of the seven Weasley children Ron Ginny Fred George Percy and Bill But they left out Charlie, Weasley. He was mentioned a few times during the series I probably works at this room – but he never makes a direct appearance except very briefly in a newspaper article Where you can barely see his face? He made an appearance in many of the later books he went to the Quidditch World Cup Helped with the Triwizard Tournament by bringing the Dragons went to bill and fleurs wedding and fought in the Battle of Hogwarts All of which he was absent from in the film’s number six, gillyweed This was what allowed Harry to breathe underwater during the second task of the Triwizard Tournament in the film Neville is the one who gives? Harry the gillyweed, but you can oshige gillyweed in the books however It’s Dobby who gives it to Harry Dobby steals it from Snape’s office and gives it to Harry minutes before the task began number five Luna and Neville’s relationship and the films they may never learn Luna romantically interested in one another Well they did do a good job setting this up all the way back in order of the Phoenix in the books this never happens They were always just really good friends number four the Quidditch World Cup in the film They are on the top level of the stadium with very bad seats where they can’t see much of anything In the books however They are invited to the minister of magics box seats to watch the match number three Peter Pettigrew or worm tales death Well Harry and Ron are trying to escape the cell in the basement of Malfoy Manor Wormtail comes down in the film worm Cell has just hit with a spell by Dobby and he falls to the ground In the books however it is much more complicated after Harry reminds worm Cell that he saved his life during the events of Prisoner of Azkaban The Silver Hand that Voldemort had given to him during gobble to fire reaches for his throat and the hedge strangles him to death number two the maze This was the third task and the try was a tournament in the books the champions have to go through a maze where many different Creatures stand in their way there were boggarts acromantula blast under scrutiny Sphinx whose riddle Harry had to answer to get by in the film however there were no creatures Instead it was the maze itself that was after them The maze was almost alive and was after each one of the champions Finally number one the Marauders Backstory one of the most disappointing things that the film’s left out was the story of the Marauders the Marauders consists of Moony Wormtail Padfoot and prongs or Lupin Peter, Pettigrew Sirius Black and James Potter in the books we learned that James Sirius and Peter each become an animagus They do this so that they could be with their friend Lupin when he turned into a werewolf they also created the marauders map Something that was very useful to Harry during his time at Hogwarts They go into a lot of detail about how they bow it’s Snape and eventually how James matures and ends up dating Lily Thanks so much for watching guys.

  1. They did a great job with the movies, but the longer books really suffered in adaption due to all the cuts.

    One change I did like from your list: Neville being the one to give Harry gillyweed. In the books too, Crouch-Moody giving Neville the book was meant to be a hint, but it went nowhere, so Crouch-Moody found a way to have Dobby do it. By making it Neville, it gives Neville a bit more agency, lets him show his wits regarding Herbology. In the same way, I liked how the film had Ron behind tipping Harry off about the dragons as it played nicely into their rift storyline (with Ron angry and Harry, but still helping him in secret.)

  2. You missed out that in the book, in Bellatrix's vault, the duplicate objects burn them and in the film they just suffocate them in a shroud of golden coins and Goblets.

  3. i agree the eye color difference is garbage but at the end of the day, whos a better actor both and skill and apearence to harry potter and mimics harrys character perfectly than daniel??

  4. Hey Movie_Flame
    If you had to pick between Dumbledore and Snape, who would you pick?

    Severus Shape
    Albus Dumbledore

  5. Movies ruin the whole experience of the Wizarding World. You HAVE TO read the books and AVOID the movies or you will be stuck with a weird Dumbledore and a Snape that get’s old…

  6. I wish Luna and Neville in the books were romantically interested, but Luna marrying into the scammander family is also ok

  7. i have seen the diffrences between the movies and the films, even though i didn't read all the books yet, i have noticed a lot of diffrences in the films, this fact made me not like the Warner Bros' work as much as i liked it before, i am currently reading Harry Potter and the goblet of fire and i am at page 246, i know i maybe already finished reading the series by the time you read this comment, but the most important thing i need to say is. . .

    someone needs to make a better movie series
    and i don't care how much it takes as long as it contains all the details in the books
    even if the finished 1st movie takes 5 hours or so, i know pepole can do better movies,
    i'll be waiting for the perfect movies
    even if it takes 50 years to make. . .

    do i sound like i expect too much?
    i think i do.

  8. Thank you for Making the very disappointing Marauder story #1, I'm so pissed about it. Also The actor who plays Remus gets on my nerves, he's just not his character at all.
    But While we're on Prisoner Of Azkaban, Are we siriusly just going to ignore the KnightBus scene like that? For Shame Morgan, for Shame.

  9. But Daniel had an allergic reaction to contacts and even his glasses, and while I do see that that is a difference, I still would like to point out that they couldn’t make his eyes green.

  10. Here you guys, if you want the point of the story you Can watch the movies, but if you want a lot of detail you Can read the books..

    Movie /book its actualy doesn't matter..

  11. number six shouldn’t be gillyweed lol it should just be dobby in general. he does so fucking much and they cut him out of like all the movies

  12. Harry's eyes were not green bcz When green Contacts were put in his eyes so it burned his eyes which caused Problems

  13. In the 2nd book the part where Harry fell out of the car that was not in the book or when The Hogwarts express was behind the car

  14. I never thought about it before but Harry and Ron’s interactions with Quidditch are inversions of each other. Where Ron was horrible at playing the game, he was a consistent player who took part in every match, most importantly the final match where he was pivotal in helping win the cup. Harry on the other hand was an excellent player, but he was not consistent. He only helped his house win the cup once in his 3rd year, the other times he was unable to take part either by getting himself suspended, injured, or on one occasion because the match was cancelled.

  15. Everyone complains about Daniel's eye color. He was ALLERGIC to the contacts. The solution would have been to hire an actress with blue eyes so they'd match. That, they definitely screwed up. But don't blame Daniel.

    Also, "animagus" has a hard G in the pronunciation

  16. wait i know this isnt in the movie but i remember when i first watched it peter's hand strangled himself…
    i guess i just have a false memory lmao

  17. Book: “Harry, did you put your name in the goblet of fire?” Dumbledoor asked calmly

  18. I hate hate hate how in goblet of fire (movie)during the scene of the quidditch world cup they cut the scene this literally really annoyed me as I wanted to see how they would try and recreate what happened in the book but then again there was a different director which made all the difference if it was a different director it could of been way way way better

  19. It’s so annoying the movies refer to pettigrew as wormtail multiple times but never actually explain why he has that nickname

  20. But it's not a competition between the films or the books. I'm incredibly glad that they both exist. 20 points to Ravenclaw.

  21. The reason why they don’t have the same colour eyes is because the person that played Harry Potter in the movies is allergic to caller ID lenses

  22. Why are you constantly making videos about how the movies are different than the films? We get it, okay? You don't have to constantly bash on the movies cause tHeY dONt hAVe aNY iMpORTaNT deTAiLS fRoM ThE bOOK

  23. I really missed the quidditch in fourth movie. We would finally get to see that quidditch is a proffesional sport and not only some thing pupils play on weekends at school. It was described so imersively in the book. And from the book description, I depicted Viktor Krum as younger version of Snape, bit different than in the movie.

  24. Ginny's character??
    They completely RUINED her in movies.
    She was sassy, popular, smart, and charismatic in books….in movies she wasn't.
