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!
If you’re still not over Dobby’s death in Harry Potter, then grab some tissues and prepare yourself.... You can now visit his grave in Freshwater West, which is located in Pembrokeshire, Wales. Fans in the U.K recently tracked down the filming location where Harry and his friends buried Dobby on the beach in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. They honored the house elf by building a shrine-cum-gravesite, so visitors can pay their respects, and we’re not crying. This is the actual filming location from the scene in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One, which was released in 2010. The grave has been marked the same as it was in the film/book: “Here lies Dobby, a free elf.” The memorial features a pile of stones surrounding a larger one that says, “Here lies Dobby, a free elf.” Despite being 3 year old news, I'm sure Harry Potter fan will want to show their respects to Dobby.
