It's a shame the Wikipedia article on the film is much more complete and comprehensive than a specialist site...this article needs improvement, in my opinion. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 116.240.213.157 (talkcontribs).

Yeah, well, you have to remember, this wiki is free to write articles from an in-universe perspective, which, unfortunately, can limit the information included. - Cubs Fan2007 02:57, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
I wish that they would hurry up with the movie. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by PNMfilmsinc (talkcontribs).
An article like this wouldn't (and couldn't) be written from in-universe perspective. It inherently must be written from our perspective. Article seems to be expanded quite a bit, but it needs to be cleaned up -- spelling, grammar. Citations are good mostly. Remember not to put speculation in! -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 04:46, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
I noticed the {{cleanup}} tag was taken down -- I've putten it back up. This page is an absolute mess. Its not encyclopedic content at all. The "Filming Status" section needs to be reorganized. The screen shots need to be spread out more, etc. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 03:42, 29 June 2008 (UTC)


Dumbledore's Funeral

Will Dumbledore's funeral be in the film? I see different sources confirming both that it will and will not be in the film. I surely hope it is -MuggleButtons 01:00, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Film In UK:

does anyone know when the film is released in the uk? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 86.20.154.205 (talkcontribs).

Big Boom and Slughorn

Do we know for certain that the "Big Boom" David Yates mentioned is the bridge collapse. I know it's likely, but unless we know for sure we shouldn't speculate. Also after seeing the image on IMDB who else is starting to not like the idea of Jim Broadbent as Slughorn. I mean he looks nothing like the book description. He is not bald for one thing, the long brown robes the costume department have got him wearing make him look positively thin, and most importantly NO WALRUS MOUSTACHE. I just hope broadbent is able to bring of the personality side of it, otherwise I will be severly dissapointed. Who else feels the same? - –K.A.JTCE 09:40, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

I agree with you. --Lupin & Kingsley 23:56, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Gaunt Family

Are the Gaunts going to be portrayed in the film? I noticed on the "cuts" list that it said that there will not be as many pensieve memories and "for example the Gaunts will be." Does that mean the Gaunts "will be" in the film, or "will be" cut? I honestly don't see how they can cut this important of a scene, considering that the bulk of Half-Blood Prince is concerning Voldemort's past. Hero of Time 87 19:55, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
If the Gaunts memory will be cut, they will be mencioned. They have to include them.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Seth Cooper (talkcontribs).
There really isn't any way the movie can stick to the book's story line if the Gaunts are cut.--Matoro183 (Talk) 20:21, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
My feelings exactly. They can't altogether remove them from the picture, because that's how we learn about the locket and the ring in the first place. And considering that we gain much of our first-hand information about Voldemort's background in that scene, I can't imagine them being cut. But what did that sentence mean exactly in the article? Did it mean they are in fact being cut, or that they "will be" one of the memories presented in the film? If they are in the film, they haven't revealed who is playing Bob Ogden, Marvolo, Morfin, or Merope Gaunt yet, or even Tom Riddle, Sr. Has anyone heard yet what they plan to do for this scene in the film? Hero of Time 87 20:23, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
I don't think they're going to "cut" everything in the sense of removing it; I read somewhere (I forget the source offhand; I'll try to find it) that they're going to combine a few of them. --Cubs Fan2007 03:44, 9 July 2008 (UTC)
Yes, please let me see it if you find it. I'd like to read more about what memories will be in the movie. Do you remember if it said who would be portraying the Gaunts or Tom Riddle Sr. in the film? I find it very hard to believe they could ever cut out the memories of Voldemort's family when those were some of the most important instances in the book. Hero of Time 87 04:05, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

HBP film

Guys, I think the page is great the way it is right now. It really just needs to be done with grammar. So please dont mak ebig changes to it. ChaosMaster16 15:25, 11 July 2008 (UTC)ChaosMaster16

Firstly, do not remove other comments from the talk page of articles, and place any new comments at the bottom. Secondly, the article has been massively improved with the addition of material from the Wikipedia article. Our article was full of speculation, fan cruft, and unnessecary images. It is fully sourced and referenced, as any article should be, and this will be the new standard for all of our film articles. I will revert any attempt to remove the new format to the old article. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 13:33, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
Okay. Sorry. First, what I did (now) was remove something I typed from discussion. And how bout we compermise. I think we should use both of our ideas, from WIkipedia and how it is now. Why don't we add the cast list from Wikipedia? Images I will remove and there is no speculation exept for the pictures, which I can remove. I'll work on it but I dont have that much time ATM. ChaosMaster16ChaosMaster16
All that I didnt do is the cast list. But I removed alot of speculation and such. Maybe just a picture here or there has to be added, as we only have two now. So, please conider this. ChaosMaster16 19:50, 15 July 2008 (UTC)ChaosMaster16
I have reverted it. Please stop removing factual, sourced information - everything on this wiki should be attributal to a specific source to stop fan speculation, fanon, and people's guesses from ruining the articles. Any attempt to remove the reference tags and links to external articles will be reverted. I am open to compromise, in so much as it does not ruin the article by removing 18,000 characters of text from the article. However, compromise should be discussed here, before implementation. The article should be improved by adding information, not removing it. Information labelled with a {{fact}} tag should be sourced or removed. Images should be added to complement the article and support the text, not crammed in simply because they are there. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 21:09, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
Including a couple more pictures would not be bad, but they must be placed in order to not destroy the layout and flow of the article. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 21:42, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

ScreenShots and Trailers

I have added these as I think they are improtant to the article as long as it doesn't disturb the flow of it. And sorry, again, about deleting the talk. I didn't relize I did....? ChaosMaster16 12:48, 17 July 2008 (UTC)ChaosMaster16

The Gaunts aren't in the film. There are three memories: Slughorn's fake memory, the orphanage, and the real slughorn memory. Sorry guys! ChaosMaster16 13:28, 31 July 2008 (UTC)ChaosMaster16

We don't yet know that, there could be more than merely 3. Only 3 that we "know of." And there'd be no way to introduce the locket or the cup if those are the only memories. Also, there's no way for Harry to realize about the Diadem later on without having seen the memory of Voldemort applying for the DADA job. That's how he figured out where he hid the Diadem later on, so how do you explain that one? And Harry wouldn't even know what the locket or the cup looked like if there was no memory of Hepzibah Smith or Merope Gaunt at all. Where is your source that those are the only memories in the movie? They just now showed Mrs. Cole on screen, but we haven't learned her real-life name as of yet. The same could be true for the Gaunts and Tom Riddle, Sr. since they are not primary characters, much like Mrs. Cole. Thus, they may not reveal their actors' names until they are seen for the first time like Mrs. Cole. TomMarvoloRiddle1926 15:32, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

David Yates has said that there are three memories with many combined. And I can explain them by saying: Dumbledore. They don't neccesarily HAVE to show the memory. DD can easily explain those that are vital, but ruins the flow of the movie. ChaosMaster16 21:09, 1 August 2008 (UTC)ChaosMaster16

That's still not a confirmation that there will only be 3. What you're presenting gives no indication which memories will or won't be in the film, merely that there will be some editing of them. You do not know which ones will or won't appear yet, only those that are shown. And yes, they do HAVE to have some kind of memory showing the locket and the cup, because how else is Harry going to know what the **** to look for? Dumbledore can describe them all day long but that still doesn't replace Harry knowing what they look like from seeing them. And that is "vital" to the movie, it doesn't "ruin the flow of the movie." That's one of the most important things in the movie. You have not presented anything to confirm what you're saying but a very vague article that was taken over a year ago. He doesn't confirm anything in that article. TomMarvoloRiddle1926 20:13, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

I left an article from David Heyman, right before the teaser was out. There will be 2 or 3 memories. ChaosMaster16 12:05, 5 August 2008 (UTC)ChaosMaster16

That does not tell which ones they will be though. The number may be 3 memories, but we are still unsure of which ones they are for sure or who will be involved in them. To date, we only know for sure of the orphanage memory belonging to Dumbledore, and we can only infer Slughorn's memory because he's in the film and because that's essential to the plot to see his memory. The other likely will involve the Horcruxes in some way, and it may combine the memories of the Gaunts and Hepzibah Smith. Who knows? But nothing can rule out the Gaunts or Hepzibah Smith at this point because we didn't know about characters like Mrs. Cole until the teaser trailer came out, so that begs the question of what other characters have they cast that they haven't revealed yet? There will almost certainly have to be a memory showing the cup and the locket, because that's the only way Harry is going to recognize them later. They may have chosen to combine the Gaunt memory with Hepzibah Smith's for time purposes, or maybe to simply do Hepzibah Smith's since her memory does show both objects and tells both of their histories, but they have to introduce/show those two objects somehow, no questions asked. What you've presented, while giving a possible number, does not rule out the Gaunts or Hepzibah Smith, which is why we should not be ruling them out in the main article either. TomMarvoloRiddle1926 12:22, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Proof that there are three memories:

Kloves was girding himself for a grind, but after writing an unwieldy draft that included almost every flashback, the scribe and the franchise's current auteur in residence, David Yates, changed course. We distilled the flashbacks down to three. We see Voldemort as a little boy, and then on two occasions we see him as a student. By doing that, we honor the spirit of what Jo [Rowling] had done but avoid getting stuck in narrative cul-de-sacs."

1. The Orphanage 2. Fake Slug. Memory 3. Real Slug. Memory

ChaosMaster16 13:14, 17 August 2008 (UTC)ChaosMaster16

Which is why there have been no casting anouncemennts for the Gaunts or Hepzibah Smith, because there not in the movie period. "Sigh", the movies gonna be ---, and we now have to wait another year for it. –K.A.JTCE 13:24, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

Differences from the book

I am working on this section. After I am complete, it will go over all of the chapters from th book and will go over everything that we know, including rumors. If you would like to help, please click the FIRST link that follows the DFtB Section. 72.88.240.56 20:28, 14 August 2008 (UTC)ChaosMaster16

You shouldn't make major changes like that to the article if you aren't going to do it all right away, you need to make a draft page.--Matoro183 (Talk) 20:31, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

>I just saw HP HBP yesterday and I just wanted to mention another inconsistency. Dumbledore does NOT use the Petrificus Totalus incantation. From what we have learned of Harry's character throughout the books and movies, Harry wouldnt have just let Dumbledore die. He would have put up a fight whether Dumbledore ordered him to or not.


I would just like to point out that some of the information on differences from the novel seems biased. For example: The "discussion of Remus and Harry about Snape's character is too short" -Smonocco 23:26, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Half-Blood Prince screening in Chicago

someone's review.

KH 05:09, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Mugglenet said there will be 2 memories. One from the traier and the Slughorn Memory. But they said they did it well. (who is this from?)

hi, i dont know how to work this thing. but i've been up all night annoyed by half blood prince (the movie). i cant for the life of me remember an attack on the burrow while harry is there. i thought that happens in deathly hollows. doesn't it? gah!

somebody PLEASE help me. e-mail me at studio54jordan@yahoo.com and tell me. you can delete this after you've read it. i just have no idea how to work this :-(

Harry attacked by Greyback?

Can anyone add a Scource for Harry being attacked by Greyback, as said in the article?--Rodolphus 19:23, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

I removed the info. already since there's no other data/info. from other trusted sites can support that. --ÈnŔîčö Ravenclawcrest(Send me an Owl!) 19:58, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Being on the harry potter set

I play as a background slytherin student (a very unimportant role) at harry potter five and six, i would recommend this to you all! Sometimes you can even talk to daniel or the others, but i didn't had a chance. I only spoke to William (boy who plays Nigel) he's pretty nice and funny, i made a little interview for him and Evanna (Luna), but she was unreachable. E-mail or post a letter to Warner Bros, that's how i did it, and i got the role.

do it and u will have the time of your life! Nigell 19:50, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Really? It was really nice. Did you say also in the set the phrase: "Break a Leg!" ? --ÈnŔîčö Ravenclawcrest(Send me an Owl!) 20:08, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

How do you mean? :$ Nigell 20:33, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

I thought it was only in the theater that it was unlucky to say "good luck". It might be in a film set aswell but I am not sure. Chester Talk 19:52, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Apparating in Hogwarts

The article says Dumbuldore and harry apparate inside Hogwarts, even though it's not supposed to be possible.But in the books, Dumbledore lifts that protection so they can practice for their appariton test, so it's believable that Dumbledore lifted the protection temporarily to apparate on the tower. So the sentence is wrong--{{SUBST:User:Rod/autosig}} 03:57, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

The sentence you mentioned is supposedly a commentary, placed by other user or unregistered visitor so i removed it. Thanks for giving attention to this matter. --ÈnŔîčö Ravenclawcrest(Send me an Owl!) 22:37, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
After seeing the film, Dumbledore and Harry do apparate inside Hogwarts, and when Dumbledore offers his arm to Harry for him to side-along apparate, Harry questions this, saying "I thought you couldn't apparate within Hogwarts", and Dumbledore's response (as I recall it) is, "Well, there's some benefits to being me.", after which they do apparate from off the astronomy tower directly to the sea cave, and apparate back afterwards. --MidnightLightning 20:15, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

"Well, there's some benefits to being me." How un-Dumbledore. MuggleButtons 19:13, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Remus/Tonks Relationship

I know the movie excluded the whole Remus/Tonks love story especially the whole big bit at the end. But should we not note that the movie somewhat imply that the two does have a relationship? What I mean is during the Burrow burning scene, Harry chased after Bellatrix, Lupin also went after them, Tonks cried out "Sweetheart" to Lupin. Plus, the movie seems to show that the two are close, like leaving the Burrow at the same time. I'll make the edit myself, but I like opinions first. Thanks. Seasrmar 17:06, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

When they left the Burrow together after the party i thought it was implied that they were together but it was never explicitly stated, which i thought was unfortunate. Mafalda Hopkirk 17:18, 15 July 2009 (UTC)
The film pretty much throws the whole subplot of Tonk's depression out the window. The one time that we actually see Remus and Tonks at all, it's somewhat implied that they're an item, but as Mafalda Hopkirk pointed out, it wasn't explicitly stated. --Twilight Duality 04:32, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

My View of the Film

I saw the movie a couple of hours ago, and I am very disapointed. I do understand that they must cut some scenes from the book, but the most imported Scenes were the ones cut. In my opinion, the movie focused way to much on the love/relasionship thing, and payed no attention to an evil person about to enslave an attire country, or the fact that a new minister is named, Snape is the Prince, Bill and Fleur. And what about the new attack on the burrow. Where are the Weasley's suppose to live now? Since Bill and Fleur were cut, how will the wedding be in the next film, surely they won't cut that scene, it is very important, as is marks the beginning of Harry being on the run. I give the film a 1.5 out of 5.--Bella Goth 03:53, 16 July 2009 (UTC)Bella Goth

Honestly, after the last five movies, I stopped being surprised with how disappointing these films are. The way they handled Harry and Ginny's relationship was just pure garbage. In the novel, it took Harry seeing Dean and Ginny snogging in a stairwell for him to figure out that he was over the moon for her, but the way the film plays out, you'd think there had been some kind of growing romantic tension between the two ever since Chamber. Though, I could have probably forgiven all of that if they hadn't have botched The Kiss so tremendously. Honestly, that scene, the First Battle of Hogwarts, and the Funeral were pretty much the greatest scenes out of the whole book, and they dropped all of them. Way to fail, WB. --Twilight Duality 04:41, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

If I recall correctly, either David Yates or Steve Kloves (most likely Kloves) mentioned something along the lines of "there are certain parts of this movie that will affect the script for the seventh movie(s), definitely." How they now handle the wedding is questionable. Perhaps it will occur at Shell Cottage, creating an opportunity to introduce the house before Dobby apparates the group there? Although, I can't remember-do the portkeys post-Battle of Little Whinging go to the Burrow, or to Shell Cottage? If the latter, my theory needs re-working.

However, yes, this movie, while entertaining and rather comical (Ron sitting between Harry and his sister perhaps most of all), was severely underwhelming. I agree, too much screen time was focused on the whole "even though they're fighting evil, they're still teenagers with hormones and relationship problems!" aspect. My deepest regret is that the entire Battle of the Astronomy Tower was cut! How ridiculous. Tom Felton did portray Draco Malfoy very well, however, that too was sunk by the disappearance of Moaning Myrtle, who I was so looking forward to seeing cry with Malfoy.

Anyways, the relationship aspect was poorly done. Instead of spontaneity, Ginny sets up Harry for the weakest peck ever filmed. Hermione and Harry seemed overly touchy (another Kloves creation), and seem to be too in the know of each other's romantic feelings. Romilda Vane's short storyline was amusing, however, just like Hermione introducing fellow classmate Theodore Nott's name to Harry in their... sixth year, I found it amusing how Ron didn't even know of her! I'm aware that Romilda was actually a Fourth Year while they were Sixths, but how do Harry and Co. have such little knowledge of the relatively few people in their classes?!? I know I know a high majority of the several hundred classmates of mine, and Harry only has to learn presumably 39 others, who he spends at least a class with everyday for six years! Immobulus 00:43, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Actually in the movie Romilda attended potions with them. You can see her in the first lesson. They should both know her. --EXE.eseguibile 04:36, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Not to mention there was NOTHING about the Gaunts in this film! Entire crucial plot elements were omitted. No Gaunts, no Battle, no Funeral, nothing. How the hell can DH be the same? And what was up with the color palette? All the spells were chrome blue and the entire movie had no color with it's cinematography being uninspired. I hereby declare this film to be renamed to "Harry Potter and the Dark Knight" MuggleButtons 19:10, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Need to Re-Organize this page

I think that with the differences between the Novel and Film, as well as the chapter areas that explain the differences are really going to screw up the organization so I would like to talk about how to keep this page organized and not difficult to navigate. Besides other than the changes between novel and film, the cast list also needs to updated from past tense to present tense.-Adv193 04:49, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

you forgot another change in book and movie

If i do remember correctly which i am pretty certain i do it was Michael Corner that Ginny dated not Dean

Ginny dated on Michael in the fifth book, and on Dean in the sixth.--Rodolphus 08:14, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Cannonical errors shown in the Film

I am not sure why this hasn't been noticed yet, but the Half blood prince officially is set in 1997: yet this is completely contradicted by the film. The beginning scene in London intentionally shows a number of buildings which were not built until the 21st century, these being things such as "The Gherkin tower" (opened in 2006), and the bridge which ends up destroyed was also opened in 2000. Hence the film is contradicting the cannonical timeline of the series. Is this worth nothing in the article in "differences from the book"? 82.23.106.229 21:24, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

I think it would be worthwhile to note any inconsistencies with the canonical timeline. Starstuff (Owl me!) 12:06, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Danger situations, missing Ron and Hermoine

This is the second movie where Ron and Hermoine didn't appear in a Harry Potter is in danger situation. With that I mean, The Search For The Philopher's Stone, Going To The Chamber Of Secrets, Meeting Sirius Black and battling in The Departement of Mysteries.

However in The Goblet of Fire, they don't are by Voldemort rebirth or Cedric Diggory's death. Like here, they don't are by the death of Dumbledore. I mean with that around the end of the movie a agree?--Station7 20:33, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

The apple and dead songbird in the vanishing cabinet.

This probably has no merit whatsoever, but as I understand it, the bite out of the apple and the dead white songbird are results of Mr. Borgin's ways of letting Draco know that the objects are passing through the cabinet safely. Also Borgin being a cruel and twisted wizard is probably the reason that draco recieved a dead bird back instead of a live one.

Thanks for reading

Anonymus person with nothing better to do. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 121.45.221.149 (talkcontribs).

What it means when the bite is taken out of the apple is that it is NOT ready to be used. When Mr. Weasley is explaining to Harry about the cabinets he calls them "tricky." When Draco sends the feather through, it comes back with parts missing. When he tries the apple, it comes back with parts missing. So, he tries something alive (the bird) it comes back dead. At this point Draco is frustrated because he hasn't been able to curse Dumbledore nor get the cabinet fixed. He tries the second bird and then before he can know whether or not it was successful, he and Harry duel in the bathroom. When Harry and Ginny are in the RoR hiding the book, the second bird flies out of the cabinet, meaning that it's fixed and ready to be used. Then Draco sends the signal for the DE to come through into Hogwarts.
The way I see it, is that, when Malfoy sends the apple through, someone takes a bite of it to show that the cabinet worked - for non-living things. The first bird comes back dead to show that it doesn't work for living things. Only later the cabinet is able to send living things through undamaged - the second bird.

Dentistry

Slughorn's confusion about dentistry is not a mistake in HBP, it's an inconsistency with the second movie and a mistake made in the production of second movie, but it's consistent with the books. As it's already listed under mistakes in the CoS article, it really doesn't need be here. EmmyG 16:23, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

Mistakes

I think that the mistake with the anachronisms isn't a mistake. It is assumed that the film takes place at the same time as the books, but this is not true, since in the first film, the broomstick which Harry and Ron admire is Nimbus 2001, not 1991, implying that the films take place in present time. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 77.29.223.53 (talkcontribs).

Actually it's a Nimbus 2000 in the Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (film), the Nimbus 2001 doesn't appear until Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (film). And the brooms are the same as in the books. - Nick O'Demus 10:03, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

Can anyone explain, or direct me to an explanation of, the rationale behind Harry racing out of the Burrow to his inevitable doom? He follows two vicious, highly skilled mass killers into a cornfield, placing himself in plain view while at least one of them takes advantage of available cover, and yet somehow is neither killed nor abducted for torture and murder by the Dark Lord. This was the point at which I lost all faith that the films, at least in David Yates' hands, were essentially about anything more than blockbuster status. Jiskran (talk) 15:48, June 30, 2012 (UTC)

That's not canonical. It was only in the film. I think because of the drama. Another logic cannot be found.  Harry granger   Talk  contribs 15:54, June 30, 2012 (UTC)
