Despite being muggles, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter has been a significant part of our lives since childhood. Potterheads have lost count of how many times they have watched and read the stories. But there are some crazy and brilliant details in the film that not every fan would have noticed. Find out “Harry Potter” movie details that were cleverly presented.
Harry let go of the Resurrection Stone and broke the Elder Wand. In the end, he did manage to survive and only kept the Cloak of Invisibility out of the Deathly Hallows. It links back to the story of Three Brothers where the two who took the stone and the wand died, while the one who chose the cloak led a good, long life. Dumbledore took the stone while Voldemort chased the wand, and in the end, their actions led to their deaths.
Love Potion Doesn’t Lie
Hermione described the Love Potion and how it smelled like her favourite things- freshly mown grass, new parchment, and spearmint toothpaste. The smoke from the potion kept changing colours to match those things. But in the end, for spearmint, it had changed to orange and red, which matched Ron’s hair color.
The ending of the film had revealed a major secret of our beloved Professor Lupin. But it wasn’t really a secret, and if you knew Latin, you would have figured it out before Hermione, the smartest witch of her age. Lupin is derived from the Latin word ‘Lupus’ which literally means wolf.
Maybe Voldemort was the most sinister. But no one’s as deceptive as Lockhart. Even his hair lied, literally. When Harry and Ron rushed to Lockhart’s room in Chamber of Secrets, the deceitful celebrity quickly whipped off a wig from a stand.
Hermione started off her journey in Deathly Hallows Part 1 with extremely short hair. But throughout the film, the length of her hair subtly grew to show how much time she had spent looking for the Horcruxes.
In Your Heart
While bidding goodbye in Prisoner of Azkaban, Sirius rested his hand on Harry’s chest and said “The ones that love us never really leave us. You can always find them right here”. He said the same thing in Deathly Hallows when Harry used the Resurrection Stone. As Harry asked if Voldemort could see him, Lupin, James, Lily; he pointed at Harry’s heart and said “We’re here, you see”.
Hope Nobody Saw Us
The makers got a bit cheeky in Prisoner of Azkaban. As the credits rolled, you could see two pairs of feet appearing on The Marauder’s Map in an intimate position.
