Harry Potter Mistakes [#3]: We're bound to make mistakes.



This thread is to talk about movie mistakes (or even plot holes or mistakes from the books) that we have noticed from reading the books or watching the HP movies. Thanks!

You're welcome.

The props department wrote "Elbus" on Dumbledore's chocolate frog card:

You'd really have to zoom in to notice that because it's a quick scene.

No one would ever notice that the first time, that's for sure.

Order of the Phoenix – the sudden appearance of Thestrals



Quote:
You can only see Thestrals if you've seen death, all right? Oh, and 'fully internalised it', which is JK Rowling's explanation for why Harry couldn't see them at the end of Goblet of Fire after watching Cedric die.

So okay, in the books she's kinda-sorta-maybe got the Thestral angle covered. Harry was very young when his parents died and didn't understand what he was seeing. He hadn't processed Cedric's death until he'd had the summer to contemplate things.

But what about Quirrell? In the books, Harry passes out and doesn't see Professor Quirrell die in Philosopher's Stone. In the films, however, he most certainly does. And has plenty of time to internalise what he's seen. So why hasn't he seen Thestrals ever since then? Why does he magically start seeing them in Order of the Phoenix when he's never done so before?

It's not a mistake per se but I think Thestrals don't magically appear or that you have to see them all the time if you've lost your parents. Also Luna was out in the open there, on Hogwarts grounds, where Thestrals are most likely to be seen.

For muggles you mean? Hmmm, not sure but I reckon yes. Ron would see a Thestral now after Fred's death.
