Considered one of the most popular franchises of all time, Harry Potter continues to be successful more than two decades after its original release. But that doesn’t mean she’s perfect! Recently, fans of the saga found a hilarious mistake in one of the films. Did you notice too?
In the original saga, the Harry Potter cast was released by Daniel Radcliffe (The Woman in Black), Emma Watson (Beauty and the Beast) and Rupert Grint (Servant).
Currently, Harry Potter is going through one of the most troubled moments in its history – marked by the intolerant statements of JK Rowling, the musical chairs in the cast of Fantastic Beasts and the critical failure of the last releases.
Meanwhile, fans use social media to remember the most emotional moments in the franchise – and find bloopers and holes in the script. See below.
Harry Potter mistake gave rise to social media
The Harry Potter films – particularly The Philosopher’s Stone and The Chamber of Secrets – have several bloopers, which most of the time go unnoticed by viewers.
One such mistake, for example, happens in a Quidditch match in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. In this scene, you can see the cables and wires holding Daniel Radcliffe on the broom.
“Threads can be seen on the sleeves of the Harry Potter costume and on the ends of the broom,” one fan commented on Reddit.
Another example happens in the characterization of Hermione. In The Philosopher’s Stone, the character’s hair appears in several different ways in the same scene.
“In the sequence where Hermione and Harry learn to fly on a broomstick, Emma Watson’s hair changes completely between cuts. In some takes, it appears clumsy, and in others, smooth and wavy,” commented another fan.
One of the most shocking mistakes, on the other hand, happens in Chamber of Secrets. In a quick glimpse, a cameraman can be seen among the characters in the film.
“Some of these mistakes, you can even understand. But how did no one notice this? A camera in the movie!” wrote another fan on the social network.
Other spectators played with the scene, making references to the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry subjects.
“He’s also a student at Hogwarts! I think he’s in the ‘magical media studies’ class,” said one netizen.
Part of the fans also tried to explain how such a big mistake was overlooked by the directors of Warner.
“I think the filming took place at a higher resolution than the screens of the time. Now the wider resolutions show something that should have been cut from the original version,” explained another fan.
