Things You Didn’t Know About the Harry Potter Movies

Mere Muggles won’t know half of these Harry Potter secrets…


    If you’ve already read our fate in Professor Trelawney’s tea leaves, then you’ll know that we are MA-HOOOOOSIVE Potterheads here at RetroEnt. Yep, both the Harry Potter book series and the Harry Potter movies lift our spirits so much you’d think somebody had put a Wingardium Leviosa charm on it (but of course, that would be silly because the Levitation Charm only works on physical objects, duh!). Although we didn’t get our Hogwarts acceptance letter on our 11th birthday, you can rest easy knowing that we put in a very strongly worded letter to the Ministry of Magic about the extremely poor service at the Owl Postal Service. It’s just not acceptable. Nope, we don’t need to call Hogwarts our home to be completely overwhelmed by the magic and madness of the Wizarding World. We may be mere Muggles, but that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate a good Disarming Spell every once in a while, y’know…

    As major Harry Potter fans, we’ve been following the magic ever since J.K Rowling released Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in 1997. For 20 years, we have followed The Boy Who Lived every step of the way – from his miraculous escape from He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named (we’re not going to risk it) to his troublesome life with the Dursleys, his life at Hogwarts, and to his dangerous forays in the world of Dark Magic. We were there to witness him learn who his true friends were, we were there to witness his final moments and the flash of green light, and we were there to wave him off into the future. We were also there for Harry when his story was turned into a multi-billion dollar movie series, and we eagerly awaited each installment to be released…so we could dissect the storyline and point out any inaccuracies (thankfully, there were only a few). Nevertheless, the movies ensured that Harry’s story would survive forever – and for that, we are truly grateful.

    Because of our extensive Harry Potter knowledge, we like to think that we know everything we could possibly know about the Harry Potter movies – but even our knowledge has to end somewhere. So when we were searching for behind-the-scenes Hazza P secrets, we stumbled across these beautiful little factoids. Because we’re feeling extra nice, we’ve compiled a list of Things You Didn’t Know About the Harry Potter Movies. How many do you know?

    Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint first saw the Great Hall when they shot the Sorting Hat scene

    Before filming began, the producer of Harry Potter didn’t allow them to have a look around the set. He wanted their reactions of the Great Hall to be authentic and real. If we saw floating candles, a night sky inside a room and a hat that speaks, we’d probably have that same face, Ron…
