10 Major Differences Between Harry Potter Books And Movies To Leave You Surprised

Even in the Muggle world, there is a clear discrimination between Pureblood wizards and Muggleborns. Want to know how? Purebloods are the Harry Potter fans who have read the books and watched all movies, whereas Muggleborns are the ones who only rely on the movies. 

Well, it's pretty obvious that the Purebloods will hate on the Muggleborns because they don't know anything about the story line. They think they know everything, but the Purebloods know better. 

But here's a funny post explaining the differences between the books and the movies. How logic works perfectly when you've read the books but your concepts still aren't clear if you've been a movie person. 

Let's check it out.

1. Harry didn't have his mother's eye color. 

1. Harry didn't have his mother's eye color. 

The only reason this was said again and again to him was because his eyes showed the same kindness like Lily Potter's did. People often assume it's their eye color that is similar. 

2. Peeves - The Poltergeist. 

2. Peeves - The Poltergeist. 

Yes, to our dismay, Peeves was never mentioned in the movies. He was a very mischievious ghost that roamed around Hogwarts and created chaos everywhere. But he was also very useful when Umbridge had to be taken out. 

3. SPEW 

3. SPEW 

Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare. Hermione Granger had set up an entire project on her own and also forced people to join it after she came to know the horrible condition of the house elves. Sadly, this was never mentioned in the movies. 

4. The backstory for Severus Snape. 

4. The backstory for Severus Snape. 

Why he used the name 'Half-Blood Prince'? What did he do before Hogwarts or how his life was when he was a student at Hogwarts? His family? Absolutely nothing has been mentioned in the movies. Only a last scene in which Snape backfires Harry's Sectumsempra spell and tells him, 'Don't you dare use my own spells against me'. I mean, what purpose does that even serve? 

5. Dumbledore said that calmly. 

5. Dumbledore said that calmly. 

Yes, it's mentioned in the book that Dumbledore very calmly asks Harry if he put his name in the Goblet of Fire. But no, the movies had to ruin it. In the movie, Dumbledore is pushing people aside, getting hyper, slamming objects, holding Harry by the collar and demanding to know if he put his name in GOBLET OF FIYAA! Nope, we can't accept that. 

6. Book Ginny was way better than movie Ginny. 

6. Book Ginny was way better than movie Ginny. 

Book Ginny was pure badass and she was invited to Slughorn's club because she displayed an amazing Bat-Bogey Hex. She was talented and brave and simply awesome! But in the movies all she does is fan-girl over Harry and act dumb. 

7. Dobby was a usual presence around Hogwarts even after the Chamber of Secrets. 

7. Dobby was a usual presence around Hogwarts even after the Chamber of Secrets. 

He attained his freedom and Dumbledore also paid him to work at Hogwarts. It was actually Dobby who helped Harry find Gillyweed for the 2nd task in the Twi-wizard tournament and not Neville. The movie folks would definitely not know this. 

8. The scene at St. Mungo's 

8. The scene at St. Mungo's 

It was a hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries. There was a very emotional scene in which Harry comes to know about Neville's parents and how they were tortured by Bellatrix in the first wizarding war. Also, the maniac, Gilderoy Lockhart was taken to St. Mungo's in order to get treated but nothing was really having an effect on him. 

9. The Prophecy 

9. The Prophecy 

The Prophecy clearly stated, 'The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches. Born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh month dies. The Dark Lord will mark him as his equal, but he will have the power the Dark Lord knows not. And either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives'. The movie folks don't know that Neville was also born at the end of July and he also met the criteria, i.e his parents were fighting with the Order and against Voldemort, plus he was a half-blood. So he could've easily been The Chosen One. 

10. Neville Longbottom 

10. Neville Longbottom 

Only if you've read the books would you know that Neville has the best character development as compared to any other character in the HP series. He proved himself to be a worthy Gryffindor by removing the Sword of Gryffindor from the hat and also showed great amount of courage by killing Voldemort's snake which was also the last horcrux. But the movie people are just gaga over his tall physique and sexy abs.
