When Harry and Ron starts talking about quidditch in the first book on the train, Ron starts the conversation like this: ”Who’s in your quidditch team?”. Perhaps this is only in the Swedish version, but i think it’s a very weird question. Harry doesnt have his own team or what??

Hi Crocs,

 

It appears to me that this is a translation error.

 

Taken from my book (UK):

“What’s your Quidditch team?’ Ron asked.
‘Er – I don’t know any,’ Harry confessed.
‘What!’ Ron looked dumbfounded. ‘Oh, you wait, it’s the best game in the world –”

Excerpt From
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
- J.K. Rowling.

 

As you’ll read above, he asking who is the team that he supports. And not in who is in your team.

 

I hope that help! 😎

Oh, that's interesting to find translation errors, even in the professional world. Kind of like when a hit song is translated into English from another language, it kind of comes out weird.

Indeed, I copied the text direct from the English book I have on my Books (iOS). So I'm surprised to see this error.

      Harry Potter star Tom Felton has revealed he doesn't think the cast will ever reunite for any more instalments of the franchise. Tom has expressed along with  fans who don’t see the need to update the original franchise.
       
      Speaking to various sources, Felton was asked if he thought the cast would do another movie.
       
      "How much you offering?" he answered.
      "I'm joking. I don't think it will be reprised, to be honest with you.
      "I think it was a wonderful eight chapters, and everything that needed to be done was done. I think they'll take it further on in their own direction, but we're all still immensely proud to be part of it."
       
      The actor, who played Draco Malfoy, also added that he was happy to see how the Potter fandom is still growing.
       
      "It's great to see it's been past down from generation to generation," Tom said. "But I can speak for the cast when I say we're very grateful for all of the support that's come our way over the last decade."
       
      Tom shared a photo of himself standing beside a pic of Draco Malfoy from the first Harry Potter movie, The Philosopher's Stone, and poked fun at how much he's changed over the years.
      Pointing at the poster of young Draco while also wearing a Slytherin cape, Tom wrote: "Agings a bitch".

      Discussion: Harry Potter Films - Unimportant parts you wish could've been added!
       
      So I'll start it off by not including Winky! However, we do see her and Dobby very very briefly in The Goblet Of Fire, if you're wondering where? I made a whole topic about 'Things you may have missed in the Harry Potter Films'.
       
      Winky, dear old Winky; Crouch's House elf. Important as she is, especially with Crouch Senior to the dark mark cast at the Quidditch Cup in The Goblet of Fire film, plus the whole 'drunk winky' fiasco. Of course lets not forget Horrified Hermione learning that she and the rest of the students are being served by house elves, which prompts her to start (S.P.E.W) Society for Promotion of Elfish Welfare, roping in Harry and Ron to help her.


      You can also join the S.P.E.W Club
