List Rules

    The Gryffindor Boys Hanging Out In The Dorms

    From a deleted Redditor:

    A very small scene (and I can't remember which movie; I think it might have been the 3rd movie or 4th movie) where the boys are hanging out in their room, eating candy and just being - well boys. Just laughing. Showed them as teenagers.

    From Redditor u/Pythias:

    This happens in the Prisoner of Azkaban and I will never forget because it was my favorite book out of the series and absolutely despised the movie when I first saw it. I hated the movie because it didn't stick to the book as well as the first two.

    Now that I'm older, I have grown to love and appreciate the movies for what they are; and that scene is now one of my favorites along with the much hated dance scene between Harry and Hermione in the Deathly Hallows.

    Ron Dancing With Professor McGonagall

    From Redditor u/meganbrase:

    I'll have to confirm that this moment isn't in the book but I love the moment in Goblet of Fire when McGonagall makes an example of Ron's rude behavior and makes him dance with her after she announced the Yule Ball.

    Hedwig's Death

    From Redditor u/batwayne12:

    I preferred Hedwig's death in the films. I mean, I'd prefer Hedwig not dying at all obviously, but I just like that in the films she didn't die while being angry at Harry. Also she died doing something heroic. That was just better I think.

    The Dursleys Get More Punishment In The Movies

    From a deleted Redditor:

    The fact that the Dursleys get off worse in the first two movies. First movie: Dudley falls into and gets trapped in the terrarium. Second movie: Vernon falls out of the window when he tries to hold Harry. Both of these aren't in the book but they're improvements!

    Harry And Hermione's Dance

    From Redditor u/linvant:

    I love it when Harry and Hermione dance in the tent in the last film. I think it's a beautiful sign of their friendship. It also was a happy moment in the film.

    Neville Helping Harry During The Triwizard Tournament

    From Redditor u/St_HotPants:

    My favorite change in the movies was in GoF when it's Neville who provides Harry with the gillyweed instead of Dobby who steals it from Snape's storage and gives it to him. I love Dobby but it was a good moment of character development for Neville in the movie.
