Differences from books to movies: Harry Potter

Sort by: Showing 9 items
Rating: List Type:
HARRY POTTER

Harry is described with green eyes in the books, while he has blue eyes in the movies. Harry's hair is described as very untidy in the books, but in the movies it isn't that notable.

In the book, Harry looks into the Mirror of Erised and sees his whole family. In the film, he only sees his mum and dad.

In the book, when Draco Malfoy paralyzed and covered Harry with his invisibility cloak on the Hogwarts Express, it was Tonks who rescued Harry. In the movie there was Luna Lovegood who found him.

In the movie, Harry never learn that it was his father and his friends who made the Maraurder's Map. In the movie we just learn that Lupin knows how to use it.
Lexie's rating:
Average listal rating (2927 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 0
HERMIONE GRANGER

In the books, Hermione is described having large front teeth, which isn't that notable in the movies.

Hermione founds S.P.E.W. (Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare) in the books, but it did not make it to the movie.
Lexie's rating:
RON WEASLEY

Ron is described as the tallest of Harry's friends in the book, but he isn't that tall in the movies.

In the book, Ron has freckles, but in the movies he have none.
Lexie's rating:
REMUS LUPIN

The books highly invested on the story between Remus and Nymphadora Tonks, while there were little about it in the movies. The only thing that indicate their relationship is when Remus & Tonks leave the Burrow on Christmas Eve, and Tonks calls Remus "sweetheart".

The movie doesn't show anything about the fact that it was Fenrir Greyback that bit Remus.
Average listal rating (1970 ratings) 8.3 IMDB Rating 0
SIRIUS BLACK

Most of Sirius's backstory was cut from the movie.
