Are there any elements from the books that WEREN'T included in the movies do you hope WILL be included for the TV series? I'm hoping we finally get to see all the St Mungo scenes with the brief return of Gilderoy Lockhart.

    The Quidditch championship finale in Goblet of Fire. I remember that them cutting the entire sequence was one of the biggest dissapoinments of my childhood.

      Goblet of fire didn't have a quidditch season because of the triwizard tournament, this is in the books.

    I don't understand. Is this going to be a remake of the books? or something new?

      It's listed as a "remake" so presumably they're just going to look at the books and adapt a lot more with a brand new cast. Warner Brothers said they want the seasons to go on for years, if possible.

        Cash cow. Abandon ship. It's going to be made to last forever. Things like whatever the frick comes on the CW network (green arrow, the flash). There's not going to be a holistic story from beginning to end with arcs and thought out development and whatnot.

      Lol, they literally struck gold with those movie and now they're remaking them? What the frick is wrong with WB? Why not make an original story? I'm sure there's plenty of material to choose from.

        There are plenty of things you could do better in terms of adapting the books, the movies were really kinda poor in that regard. The only issue is it'll be hard to replace some of the movies actors.

    mungo was completely omitted from the movies? i read the books semi recently and not seen the movies for a while but for some reason, i have a vivid picture of that scene in my head
    but for me, it would generally be more of the nuance that was deleted from the movies. properly explaining the marauders in poa would be nice and then more time exploring harry and his parallels to the half blood prince. in the movie it's more like a little twist/gotcha with no themes attached to it. then i guess show all the voldemort memories and do the barty crouch jr storyline properly

      Nope, Mungo's doesn't show up at all. Not even as some brief set piece in a 2 minute scene; no set was ever made since they never went there. It's only mentioned and we never see Neville's parents in their post-torture state; only their healthy forms from old pictures.

    the later movies were so badly executed it's insane

    I watched Goblet of Fire last night and their inability to adapt a long book to a short film really shows. not just that but the jumbled mashup of plot shortcuts make the exposition and dialogue so feverish and unrealistic

    Barty Couch Jr. was an actually interesting and clever character in the books and in the movie they made him into a le evil weirdo. Hope they could give him justice in any new adaptation. Honestly the entire Goblet need a proper adaptation as the movie was plain moronic.

      They could make a cute black Hermione with bushy hair, light brown freckles, and an overbite. The problem is when they just cast anyone and go, "IT'S HERMIONE TRUST ME!".

        Hermione is already a far fetched character. Brilliant woman who comes from muggle background
        making her black would be too unbelievable even in a world with flying broomsticks and magic wands

          Hermione's biggest drawback regarding her intelligence is that she's excellent at remembering lessons+text, but terrible at invention and struggles to do any magic that requires "feeling" (connecting with her broom, conjuring a Patronus).

          If anything, that fits a black stereotype perfectly.

            Actually, black have higher levels of estrogen (yes, including the men) which makes them more emotional than other races

            If anything, it'd be the opposite - she'd excel at "feeling" magic but be shit at anything that requires thought, or imagining if she didn't eat breakfast that day

    No, because Harry Potter was easily one of the dullest franchise in the history of movie franchises. Each episode following the boy wizard and his pals from Hogwarts Academy as they fight assorted villains has been indistinguishable from the others. Aside from the gloomy imagery, the series’ only consistency has been its lack of excitement and ineffective use of special effects—all to make magic unmagical, to make action seem inert.

    Perhaps the die was cast when Rowling vetoed the idea of Spielberg directing the series; she made sure the series would never be mistaken for a work of art that meant anything to anybody—just ridiculously profitable cross-promotion for her books. The Harry Potter series might be anti-Christian (or not), but it’s certainly the anti-James Bond series in its refusal of wonder, beauty and excitement. No one wants to face that fact. Now, thankfully, they no longer have to.

    >a-at least the books are g-g-good though
    "No!"
    The writing is dreadful; the book was terrible. As I read, I noticed that every time a character went for a walk, the author wrote instead that the character "stretched his legs."

    I began marking on the back of an envelope every time that phrase was repeated. I stopped only after I had marked the envelope several dozen times. I was incredulous. Rowling's mind is so governed by cliches and dead metaphors that she has no other style of writing. Later I read a lavish, loving review of Harry Potter by the same Stephen King. He wrote something to the effect of, "If these kids are reading Harry Potter at 11 or 12, then when they get older they will go on to read Stephen King." And he was quite right. He was not being ironic. When you read "Harry Potter" you are, in fact, trained to read Stephen King

    Doing Harry's relationship with Cho Chang properly (them breaking up because it seems she's only interesting in getting the story about Cedric from him and it fricking with his guilt over him).

    Also all the stuff with Ginny that was cut so the relationship is less out of nothing than in the films.
