Harry Potter facts that every true fan should know...

 

  1. Professor McGonagall was once a talented Quidditch player herself.

    McGongall played on the Gryffindor team during her years at Hogwarts, but stopped after an ugly fall during a Quidditch Cup finals game between Slytherin and Gryffindor.
     
  2. J.K. ROWLING CREATED THE DEMENTORS BASED ON HER OWN EXPERIENCES WITH DEPRESSION.

    In an interview, she once explained, “...it's that cold absence of feeling – that really hollowed-out feeling. That's what Dementors are.”
     
  3. The Dementors became unemployed.

    When Kingsley Shacklebolt was made the permanent head of the Minstery of Magic, he banned the use of Dementors to guard Azkaban, and everywhere else in the wizarding world.
     
  4. Emma Watson auditioned for the role of Hermione at school.

    heer Harry Potter audition was just a regular day in school.
     
  5. Herpo the Foul was the original creator of the horcrux.

    This ancient Greek dark wizard is the first known wizard to triumphantly create a horcrux — and breed the first Basilisk.
     
  6. The Deathly Hallows has a real-life story inspiration behind it.

    The Pardoner’s Tale by Geoffrey Chaucer is the story that Rowling chose to base the Deathly Hallows off of. The tale is one of many from the well-known book, The Canterbury Tales.
     
  7. Snape hated Neville because of Lily Potter.

    The Hogwarts professor knew that Neville could have been the chosen one instead of Harry, which meant Lily would have lived. Of course, Snape was in love with Lily so that all makes sense.
     
  8. The Hogwarts dinners/food on sets.

    The food in Harry Potter was made of real roast beef, ham, and turkey, at the request of director Chris Columbus. Unfortunately, the food spoiled quickly due to the hot lights on set.
     
  9. Real homework was done at Hogwarts.

    While filming on set, the younger actors would work on actual homework to make the school setting feel more realistic.
     
  10. Dumbledore could see Harry when Harry was using the invisibility cloak.

    Dumbledore silently casted the human-presence-revealing spell, homenum_revelio, to detect Harry under his invisibility cloak.
