10 Details we never noticed in the “Harry Potter” movies

It seems like hidden messages can be found not just in the Harry Potter books: the movies also abound in curious details that we might not have noticed or known. I think you will like this post.

Dolores Umbridge’s clothing


According to the plot of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, a new teacher — Dolores Umbridge — comes to school and terrorizes everyone with her rules. Consider this: the more evil, mad, and powerful this character becomes, the darker the clothes she wears.

The first and last parts of the saga are symmetrical.

There is a curious parallelism: in the first film, Hagrid takes Harry to the Dursleys on Sirius’s flying motorcycle. When the time came for Harry to leave their home, it is also Hagrid who takes him away on that same motorcycle. Another observation: Hagrid takes Harry to the world of magic by showing him Diagon Alley and accompanying him to Hogwarts; he also takes him from this world when he carries the “dead” Harry back to Hogwarts in the last film.

Moody’s and Bill Weasley’s similarity is no accident.

The characters of “Mad-Eye” Moody and Bill Weasley are well known to all fans. A curious fact: the actors who played their roles are related. Brendan Gleeson, who brilliantly impersonated the lame glass-eyed wizard, is the father of Domhnall Gleeson, who played Ron’s elder brother.

The films’ second famous trio underwent some changes.


According to the books, the trio of Malfoy, Crabbe, and Goyle remained inseparable up to the tragic events in the Room of Requirement. However, the films’ creators had to change this scene: the actor who played Crabbe was arrested and, therefore, unable to take part in the filming, so we see Blaise Zabini instead.

A pregnant Bellatrix

During the filming of The Half-Blood Prince, Helena Bonham Carter was pregnant. That is the reason why it was decided to dress her in loose clothing and avoid taking close-ups of her by hiding her figure behind furniture and other objects.
