Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Differences between the book and the movie (Part 2)


If you have not yet, please check out parts 1, 2, 345, 6 and 7 (part 1). This is part two of the last book/movie. Big thanks to everyone, who managed to stick around for all these parts, week by week. Let’s get to it.

In the book, Bill Weasley tells Harry that goblins do not trust wizards, he then explains the whole history behind it as to why not. In the movie, he does not tell him, but the movie itself makes it very clear that they have zero trust. The example being when Griphook sees the Sword of Griffindor.

The polyjuice potion works differently. In the book, when Hermione uses it to change into Bellatrix, she is completely transformed. Even her voice. In the movie, however, she is transformed into Bellatrix, but her voice remains the same.

Prior to his death, Albus Dumbledore instructed Harry that he must tell no one about the Horcruxes, except to Hermione and Ron. In the book, Harry held his word and did not mention a thing to anyone. In the movie, Harry mentioned them to Aberforth, Albus’s brother. If we stick with Aberforth for a second more, in the book, he tells Harry the whole history of his family. About his sister and the reason why he is so upset with Albus. In the movie, he tells Harry that Albus made some big sacrifices referring to his sister, but did not go into any detail.

When Harry makes his majestic return to Hogwarts, he confronts Snape in the great hall. In the book, professors McGonagall, Sprout and Flitwick all duel Snape. In the movie, it is only professor McGonagall who duels him.

The book took a nice approach and evacuated all underage students from Hogwarts to Hogsmeade prior to the battle. In the movie, we do not see this happen, but because we do not see any underage students running around, we can believe that they took care of them too. Hopefully.

In the book, when Harry is looking for the Diadem, he makes his was to the room of requirements where he is confronted by Malfoy, Crabbe and Goyle. After the battle Crabbe is killed. In the movie, Crabbe is not with Malfoy and Goyle. He is replaced by Blaise Zabini. Goyle is the one who gets killed. He must sure have wished that Crabbe was there. 

When the battle of Hogwarts is in progress, the Dementors charge for the castle. Seamus Finnigan, Luna Lovegood, and Ernie Macmillan all use their patronus to ward them off. In the movie, Aberforth wards them off on his own. Badass.

Now, to the sad part. In the book, when Snape is dying, his memories come out of his mouth, ears and eyes. His last words to Harry are: “Harry, look at me.”. In the movie, we see only a few tears streaming down his cheeks. His last words to Harry are: “Look at me. You have your mother’s eyes.”.

After the big battle, when Voldemort is finally killed, his body still remains on the ground. In the movie, his body disintegrates and is blown away by the wind.

After he defeated Voldemort, Harry used the Elder Wand to repair his Holly wand. After that, he returned the Elder Wand to Dumbledore’s tomb. In the movie, he snaps the Elder Wand in half and throws away both pieces.

This is all. Again, thank you for reading each part week after week. Now it is time for some new articles, eh? I might do articles like these again in the future, but for now, mischief managed.
