Behind the scenesEdit

Harry Potter: "Shut up, Dudley. I'm warning you..."
Dudley Dursley: "Why should I?"
Harry Potter: "Because if you don't, I'll turn you into the idiot pig you are!"
— Early lines from the Order of the Phoenix film
  • In an early script for the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry threatened to use this spell on Dudley once again when Dudley and his gang tormented Harry near the film's start.[1]
  • Hagrid mentions that he tried to turn Dudley into a pig, but supposes that must not have worked because he was already too much like a pig. However, he might simply have been using the wrong spell. Alternatively, this is simply another instance of Hagrid's magic not working fully, due to his snapped wand.
  • It is unknown if this spell is specifically to turn humans into pigs, or if it could turn any creature into a pig. It may be even be the same spell Professor MacGonagall used to turn her desk into a pig. If it is, this means that it can also be used on inanimate objects.
