As far as the readers of the Harry Potter series are concerned they were a bit disappointed with the movie. A lot of the things that they expected from the movie just did not happen in the movie. Let’s take a look at the things that were different from the book in the movie.
Floating Aunt ends up in Sheffield.
One of the most dramatic and funniest scenes in the movie was the inflating of Aunt Marge Dursley by Harry Potter when she verbally abuses his parents. In the book, the aunt floats till Number 4 Privet Drive. But in the movie, she is seen circling around a chimney in Sheffield.
This scene was long-awaited and expected by the audience. The viewers wanted Harry Potter to revenge his relatives for the mistreatment he was subjected and it happened just in the right way.
No Cho Chang introduced in the third book
It might come as a shock but No Cho Chang was introduced in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. She is a Ravenclaw Seeker and seen in the Quidditch against Harry that harry wins to get the Golden Snitch. No Quidditch fight happens between Ravenclaw Seeker and Gryffindor in the movie. So, No Cha Chang is introduced much later in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
Harry’s happy memory to cast Patronus
The Patronus spell works effectively when the seller thinks of a happy memory. The happy memory that he uses is when he finds out that is is a wizard and that now he’ll finally be free from the house of Dursley’s. Although in the movie he makes up a happy memory of his parents talking. He is able to cast the spell in his second attempt but it’s not until his third attempt that he successfully casts the spell.
Harry Winning the Quidditch Cup
Harry Potter as he is the hero of the series also merges as a Hero for the Gryffindor team. He wins the Quidditch Cup for the team and is celebrated with much applause in the book. But the movie does not show this winning moment, the only scene that is shown in the film is his match against Hufflepuff.
