  1. Discussion: Harry Potter Films - Unimportant parts you wish could've been added or deleted scenes 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 Like this post if you think #Winky should've made it in the film! What bit from the books do you wish made it to the films, answers by Owl Post please! (Please don't use Errol as he might get lost and confused....)

  4. You have to see this amazing recreation of the WizardingWorld in Minecraft - Harry Potter in Minecraft! We have been recreating the Harry Potter world block by block for a long time now. Now, we finally release this map by DynamiskFisk, with help from the rest of the team, so that anyone can enjoy visiting their favorite places in the Harry Potter world! The map features locations such as Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, King's Cross Station, Godric's Hollow and much more! Using apparition, as well as the floo network, through the fireplaces, you’ll instantly be able to find any and every part of the Potter universe! The trailer for the project Currently only works in Java Minecraft version 1.12 or 1.12.2! We highly recommend downloading the map for 1.12 or 1.12.2, which has more features. Alternatively, you can download a WIP 1.13.2 version of the 1.12.2 map by clicking here. Unfortunately, it does not work in Minecraft Windows Store Edition Unfortunately, it does not work in Minecraft Pocket Edition Unfortunately, it does not work in Minecraft Xbox or PS3 or PS4 Edition The map is free, although you can choose to donate when downloading. For Download Links: http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/harry-potter-adventure-map-3347878/ Screen Shots: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ): By The Floo Network (Planet Minecraft) Hello, everyone! I would like to help everyone who has a question, but I don't have time to respond to you all. Since I am seeing a lot of the same questions asked, I'll try to answer those here: 1. The map doesn't show up when I download it. This is because you have extracted the world folder into a new folder. The folder in your saves folder should be called "By The Floo Network". If it is called "Harry Potter in Minecraft" instead, simply open this folder, and drag the folder inside out into the saves folder. 2. What is the Resource pack and the shader pack? I have made the Resource pack myself, and it's custom built for the map. If can be downloaded from the Planet Minecraft link in the description. The Shader is Sildur's Vibrant Shaders. 3. How do I install the map? There is a guide if you click the link in the description, which explains how to install it. 4. The book for teleporting around doesn't show up in my inventory. The book only shows up, if you are playing in the version 1.12 or later. The mechanism for giving the player the book in not compatible with 1.11.2 or older updates. 5. Is there any mods required: No. The map has been built and functions in vanilla Minecraft. 6. Does the map cost money? No. The map is free, though you can choose to donate. 7. Is it an adventure map with quests? Not yet, but I am currently working on an expanded version of the map, with quests, as well as new locations, (The rest of the ministry of magic, post-battle Hogwarts and much more!) It will also add some improvements to the locations already built 8. How long did it take to build the map, and how many people worked on it? We are five teenagers, four of us from Denmark and one from America, who've worked on the map on and off over a period of several years. The vast majority of the map was however built by just one person, with the rest helping with some builds and some of the technical aspects of the project.
  5. Things you may have missed in the Harry Potter Films When adapting a book to a film there tends to be a lot of things that are missed out and Harry Potter is no different. As time went on the Harry Potter books became longer and the film makers along with JK Rowling had to make choices of what to trim down. While taking this in to consideration, it's much easier to place things in the background; the so called 'easter eggs' or things that are hidden in the background which gives fans something to hunt for, or details that are hidden away and flashed on screen for just a few seconds. For those who are really looking, we've broken down the top 16 of 'Things you may have missed in the Harry Potter Films'. If you liked this post, why not share it with friends and family and across social media? Starting off with Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone There's a scene briefly mentioned in the book, Harry needs a new uniform to attend St Brutus's Secure Centre for Incurably Criminal Boys. So rather than going out and buying the uniform needed the Dursleys do the only sensible thing they die Dudley's old uniform gray. This is only briefly mentioned the book but if you look in the back of this scene in the Philosopher's Stone you can actually see petunia dyeing the clothes in the background and it's a nice little touch and an ode back to the book. The leaky cauldron is Harry's first step into The Wizarding World but did you notice the sign outside seems to be subtly blacked out and it only becomes visible if a wizard walks by? Harry's scar first begins to burn when Snape is looking at him leaving Harry to believe that Snape is evil and is behind the burning of the scar but in fact his scar is actually burning because we are seeing the back of Professor Quirrell head who is actually When Lord Voldermort (He who should not be named)! Did you spot that McGonagall's name is actually next James Potter's in the trophy case for Quidditch? Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Ron's robes in the Chamber of Secrets are slightly more worn in than the rest of his classmates insinuating that their hand-me-downs. Did you spot the hardcover copies of Harry Potter books in this scene and Chamber of Secrets! Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire In Quidditch World Cup in the Goblet of Fire which briefly shows Dobby the house-elf and actually another character cut from the film's if you look closely you can actually see Winkie! Harry Potter and Order of the Pheonix Did you spot the Starbucks logo in the black family tapestry on the wall. Did you realise when Professor Dolores Umbridge causing havoc over the new Hogwarts rulesshe becomes more and more powerful her clothes slowly get darker and darker? Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince In the half-blood Prince when Dumbledore actually shows Harry's first memory of meeting Tom Riddle was a photo of the cave where he would hide one of his Horcruxes actually in the same scene there's a close-up of seven stones placed on the windowsill before his change into Voldemort and splitting his soul into seven pieces. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 In the Battle of Hogwarts it's actually Oliver wood on a the broom at the beginning of the sequence heading into battle. Here you can actually see Trelawney's long flowing hair briefly showing up on screen during the Battle of Hogwarts. The giant who's wielding a giant axe in the scene isn't wielding an axe at all it's actually a broken ring from the Quidditch pitch. When Snape is defending himself from McGonagall in the Great Hall not only does he block her spell but he shows his true allegiance subtly he redirects her spell towards the Carrows and just before he flees he actually stops and removes their wands from them. When Lord Voldermort (He who should not be named) loses more and more of his soul in Deathly Hallows you see his eyes are more sunken in and he develops veins and lesions on his skin which are subtly reminiscent of the cracks in his Elder Wand. In Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows book the last line reads the 'The scar had not pained Harry for nineteen years. All was well'. This was also the last shot of the film, Harry's scar is almost completely faded. If I've missed any other fantastic easter eggs, please do let me know!

  8. "I hope you're pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed — or worse, expelled. Now if you don't mind, I'm going to bed.” ― Hermione Granger

  9. Hagrids facts about the Magical Creatures of Harry Potter. 24. Sounds Real Safe How could anyone forget the Blast-Ended Skrewt, the nightmare creatures that Hagrid inexplicably loves? Okay, it’s explicable: the man has a heart the size of Texas. And he bred them into existence. Skrewts are hybrid creatures, and come about by breeding a Manitcore to a Fire Crab. 23. Don’t Mess With Norbert Believe it or not, Norwegian Ridgebacks (the same breed as Hagrid’s pet dragon, Norbert) start breathing fire as young as one-month-old. This makes them the youngest species of dragon to shoot flames. 22. It’s So Fluffy, I’m Gonna Die Soft and furry, a Puffskein is quite possibly one of the most cuddle-worthy magical creatures. Don’t recognize the name Puffskein? You may know them by their other name, “Pygmy Puffs.” Puffskeins, a group of which is called a poffle (how adorable is that?), were altered by Fred and George Weasley to produce a miniature version, which they called Pygmy Puffs and sold at their shop, Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes. 21. Over Achievers Looks like Norwegian Ridgebacks aren’t the only magical creature to develop their skills young. Hippogriffs are able to fly no less than one week after being born. That being said, it can take a few months before they have the strength to undertake long journeys with their parents. 20. Unwanted Visitors If you live in Wisconsin and have noticed a frog-headed beast in your backyard, it’s quite possible you weren’t just imagining things! The Hodag is a magical beast native to Wisconsin. Its main source of food are mooncalves, creatures that burrow holes in the ground and only come out during full moons, which has lead Hodags to wander into the farms of muggles at night looking for food. Thus, the MACUSA Department of No-Maj Misinformation was forced to work tirelessly to convince the American public that all reported Hodag sightings were just hoaxes (luckily, we know the truth). Funny, I never thought of Wisconsin as one of the many places Harry Potter fans should visit. Guess it should be added to the list! 19. Kitty Cat Kneazles, otherwise known as the magical felines of the wizarding world, are more than just cute and cuddly. Their whiskers can actually be used to make wands. Don’t get too excited though, because wands made from unicorn hair, phoenix feathers, and dragon heartstrings are said to be far superior. 18. Halfbreed Looks like Hermione isn’t the only halfbreed at Hogwarts. Kneazles are commonly interbred with regular cats to create part-Kneazles. There are even some witches and wizards who have gone into the kneazle-breeding business; Arabella Figg is one such example. Hermione’s cat, Crookshanks, is also a half-Kneazle. 17. Better Call Pest Control Though Doxies might look like an adorable version of a bat to us mere muggles, in the wizarding world, they are considered to be pests. They tend to live in draping like curtains and are known to infest houses. Luckily, there are two ways to get rid of them. 1. Doxycide, a black-hued solution that paralyzes doxies when sprayed on them, allowing for safe removal, and 2. casting a Knockback Jinx, a spell they are powerless to. 16. Literal Translation While the name “Bowtruckle” may not seem too significant, when looking back into the etymology of these covert plant-like animals, we discovered that the name is very apt, indeed. In an old Scottish dialect, the word “bow” means “dwelling.” Meanwhile, in old English, “truckle” translates to “limb of tree.” Makes a lot more sense now, huh? 15. How Fitting Another fun fact about bowtruckles? A group of them is referred to as a branch. 14. All Hail the Thunderbird If you’re lucky enough to have a wand made from a Thunderbird’s tail feather, we recommend guarding it with your life. Wands containing the tail feather of a Thunderbird may be difficult to get a handle on, but they’re also extremely powerful (and known for their transfiguration skills in particular). Another added bonus (that could end up saving your life)? Wands with this ingredient are able to sense danger and can cast spells independent of their owner. 13. Girl Power Most of us only know the Chinese Fireball as the breed of dragon that fought Viktor Krum in the Triwizard Tournament. What you may not know is that for this species of dragon, the females are usually larger than the males. Take that, boys! 12. The Groundhog of the Wizarding World Nifflers stole our hearts onscreen as the funniest and most adorable beasts in 2016’s Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. What fans of the book and film may not have realized is that Nifflers are known for their ability to burrow. In fact, they live in burrows that can be as much as 20 feet below the ground. They’re so good at burrowing, the goblins used Nifflers to burrow underground for treasure. 11. Pickled Murtlap Though the Murtlap looks like an underwater hamster on steroids, it happens to be super useful when it comes to resisting jinxes. The tentacles that grow on a Murtlap’s back can actually be pickled and eaten to help build up resistance to jinxes. Murtlap tentacles can also heal scrapes and were a key ingredient in the essence that Hermione covered Harry’s cuts in after his torturous detention with Umbridge. 10. Moody Mandrake Mandrakes age just like humans, and part of their growing process includes a period of adolescence. It’s actually been proven that during this period, Mandrakes take on the traits of typical teens, such as being moody and secretive, and even getting acne. 9. The Finest Silver In addition to being one of the cleverest creatures in the wizarding world, Goblins are also accomplished metalsmiths. There are many references to “goblin-wrought” metals throughout the Harry Potter series, including when Sirius Black mentions family dishes made from the “finest fifteenth-century goblin-wrought silver,” and when Hagrid gave an “indestructible” helmet made by Goblins as a gift to the giants. 8. Float Away, Plimpy The Plimpy, a round fish with long, thin legs, is considered by Merpeople to be a pest. Unlike Doxies, there isn’t a magical solution to get rid of them. Rather, the easiest way to get rid of a Plimpy is to tie its leg into a knot, at which point it will gently drift away. 7. Go Sparky! Fawkes kind of stole the spotlight when it came to Phoenixes in the Harry Potter series, so much so that you may not have even realized that Fawkes was not the only known domesticated Phoenix. The New Zealand Quidditch team, the Moutohora Macaws, actually have a domesticated Phoenix as their mascot. Its name is Sparky. 6. He’s Gonna Blow Erumpents (aka magical rhinos) may be one of the fiercest-looking beasts in the wizarding world, but they also have rather peculiar habits. Erumpent populations were never very big, largely owing to the fact that male Erumpents are frequently known to blow themselves up during mating season. 5. Feeling Giddy The Billywig, for those who don’t remember, is a sapphire-blue insect native to Australia. They have a long stinger on their bodies, but unlike wasps’ relationship with muggles, young witches and wizards actively try to get stung by Billywigs. This is because getting stung by one of these Australian insects results in a period of giddiness, followed by levitation. The only catch is that too many stings can cause uncontrollable hovering. 4. Don’t Forget the Ear Muffs! From their brief introduction in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, you might think that mandrakes aren’t so bad (save for being a little annoying). However, what you may be forgetting is that the Mandrakes in the second book were young and hadn’t matured yet. What happens with age, you may be wondering? Well, a Mandrake’s cry becomes more powerful as it grows older. A baby Mandrake’s cry can knock a person unconscious, while an adult Mandrake’s cry has the ability to kill someone. A famous example of this was Venusia Crickerly. In 1912, the former Minister for Magic was gardening when she accidentally uprooted a Mandrake, and its cry ended her life. 3. In Mourning When a member of an Acromantula colony dies, the corpse is then eaten by the other spiders in the colony after death. Who’s hungry? 2. Immortal… Almost For anyone with a fear of snakes, Basilisks are quite possibly the most terrifying creature ever to step foot inside Hogwarts. Even more terrifying, they lead extremely long lives (up to 900 years!). Not to totally scare you, but the Basilisk of Salazar Slytherin lived to be roughly 1,000 years old. 1. Cock a Doodle Doo Here’s a strange Harry Potter fact: the mortal weakness of the Basilisk is the crow of a rooster (we’re not making this up, we promise). The next time you’re head to head with the King of Serpents, just be sure to have a chicken in your back pocket. Source: Factinate
