The wizarding world and the Harry Potter universe are loved around the world. From books to film adaptations, the Harry Potter story has been a hit in both media. The cast, even from an early age, was perfect for each of the characters.
However, whether it’s writing from the script, the director’s instructions, or even the choice of an actor, a character can seem… out of place. Throughout the eight blockbuster films, the actors, writers and directors provide audiences with wonderful moments and an incredible story, but there are a few times in Harry Potter when the characters seem extinguished.
ten Neville’s declaration of love
Neville Longbottom has been a fan-favorite character since the beginning. His calm nature mixed with his bravery that shines throughout the series has drawn audiences to Neville no matter the situation. As the Battle of Hogwarts begins in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Neville rushed over to Harry and Ginny to ask if they had seen Luna because Neville wished to declare his love for her as “they will both be dead by dawn”. While the sentiment was incredibly sweet, Neville was never one to make grand romantic gestures. Also, Luna and Neville haven’t met in the books. Neville married Hannah Abbott and Luna married Rolf Scamander, grandson of Newt Scamander.
9 Ron’s Horcrux Behavior
Horcruxes are incredibly evil, dark magic. When the golden trio find Slytherin’s locket, they each take it in turns to keep it. However, the Horcrux can affect a person’s mood and behavior. When Ron wears the Horcrux too long, he begins to pick on his friends.
Hermione encourages Ron to remove the locket, but even when he does, his ugly behavior continues. Ron calls out Harry for dragging them into this, for not understanding what it’s like to have a family to worry about. Harry and Ron fight, and eventually Ron Apparates, leaving Hermione and Harry alone. While the Horcrux is to blame for some of Ron’s behaviors, the fact that Ron continues to rant makes no sense.
8 Harry and Hermione’s dance
After Ron left Harry and Hermione in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Harry and Hermione – while still a great team – are missing the third member of their trio. When Hermione wears the Horcrux, she becomes sad and looks like a ghost.
Knowing that Ron misses Hermione, Harry takes her necklace off and encourages her to dance with him. Although the scene has no dialogue and looks like a warm gesture between friends, it doesn’t match Harry and Hermione’s relationship. Instead, audiences see Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe more than Harry and Hermione.
Hermione Granger, both in books and on screen, is the most brilliant witch of her age. She doesn’t have time or interest in superficial activities or anything that might distract her from her schoolwork. In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of AzkabanHarry and Hermione travel back in time to save Sirius Black and Buck from a death sentence.
When Hermione and Harry reunited, they quickly ducked behind the trees to hide. Hermione looked at herself carefully and wondered aloud, “Is this really what my hair looks like from the back?” Although humorous, the comment seemed strange. Hermione wouldn’t be focused on herself, but rather on what needed to be done.
6 Ginny and Harry in the Room of Requirement
Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley have a great relationship – going from strangers on Platform 9 3/4 to becoming friends and then the semi-sweet transition to becoming something more. In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood PrinceHarry has to hide his potions book so he doesn’t accidentally hurt anyone else.
Ginny volunteers to help Harry and takes him to the Room of Requirement, so she can hide him. The scene is quiet and hesitant, and Harry and Ginny share their first kiss. Although the scene is beautiful, Harry and Ginny’s first kiss in the books is passionate and happens in front of everyone after Gryffindor wins the Quidditich Cup – a statement and testament to the bravery with which they love each other .
5 Harry’s outburst over the truth about Sirius Black
In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry uses his Invisibility Cloak to spy on the Minister for Magic, Cornelius Fudge, Professor McGonagall and Madame Rosmerta as they discuss Harry’s relationship with Sirius Black. When Harry discovers that Sirius Black not only sold his parents to Voldemort, but was their best friend and Harry’s godfather, Harry flees into the forest.
When Ron and Hermione find Harry, he tells them everything. However, he shouts into the forest that “he was their friend”, vowing to kill Sirius when he finds him. While everyone can relate to Harry’s grief, the reaction seems a bit harsh for a thirteen-year-old boy.
4 Harry and Ginny’s Wedding Kiss
While the chemistry between Harry and Ginny in the Harry Potter books was amazing, the chemistry in the movies wasn’t quite there. At Bill and Fleur’s wedding in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1Harry and Ginny shared a kiss in the Weasleys’ kitchen.
Although it’s quick and sweet, Harry and Ginny actually share a much more passionate kiss in the privacy of Ginny’s bedroom in the books… before Ron bursts out. While George is the hilariously interrupting one in the film, it’s an awkward moment that doesn’t quite fit the characters audiences have come to know from the books.
3 Meeting Ron and Lavender on the train
The relationship between Ron Weasley and Lavender Brown in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince screams the clumsy passion of the young love with lots of hugs and big public displays of affection in what seems like every hallway at Hogwarts. It’s safe to say that Lavender is more attached to Ron than he is to her.
On the Hogwarts Express back to London for Christmas, Harry and Ron sit together in a carriage and watch, uncomfortably, as Lavender fogs up the glass and draws a heart with her and Ron’s names. While Ron and Lavender’s relationship is always over the top, this moment is beyond her.
2 This hug between Malfoy and Voldemort
Arguably one of the most awkward and offbeat moments of the entire Harry Potter The franchise was when Lord Voldemort – the darkest wizard of all time – hugged Draco Malfoy for returning to join the Death Eaters.
Even Dean Thomas looks on in disgust and confusion at the sight. The moment is not in the books and surprisingly had different reactions from audiences around the world. In the UK, audiences found the moment chilling. In the United States, the public could not help laughing. No matter the reaction, Voldemort showing affection for someone is not his style.
1 “Harry, did you put your name in the Goblet of Fire?”
Probably the greatest non-character moment of all is when Professor Dumbledore yells at Harry, asking if he put his name in the Goblet of Fire after he spat out Harry’s name – choosing him as one of the champions. of the three wizards.
Albus Dumbledore has been described and portrayed as a level-headed individual with great insight. In the books, he never raises his voice or fights with others. So when Dumbledore yells at Harry in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, almost accusatory, the audience is caught off guard. Especially since in the book, Dumbledore calmly says that line.
