As I mentioned in the comments, the technique used to alter the appearance of film in post production is called 'Colour Grading', and is a process used in most if not all movies. This was a practise that was used even before the advent of digital editing, but was the result of what was referred to as 'Colour Timing'. Colour Timing is still used in analogue ...

Ok, I understand why you are confused about this. Please let's first understand how the elder wand works: the wand must be taken from it's owner against their will. This does not mean that it must specifically be disarmed. It can be snatched, summoned, taken after killing, stolen while dueling or any other way of taking the wand against the will of the ...

I'd stick with what System Down wrote in the comments: different directors. I have at least two reasons for that. First, there is no mention of the difference in the books. He always appears in the flame. Here is what it says in the "Goblet of Fire": The room was in semidarkness; the flames were the only source of light. Nearby, on a table, the Support ...

Because the medium is different. It's clear that the spell used by Sirius Black is Floo Network's Head-only transport. But medium for both the istances are different. In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire when Sirius Black talk's to harry there is only coal present in fire place. But in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix , when serious talk to ...

How was Azkaban guarded? It was guarded by the Dementors, who would catch and punish anyone trying to escape. They might lose their soul to the dementors too. Hence, the prison was actually dependent way too much on the Dementors. As we know, when Voldermort had been reborn, the dementors sided with him. It is impossible for anyone to "break" out of Azkaban ...

From Snape's point of view James Potter had everything easily. He was rich, popular, clever, charismatic and he had Lilly and he made sure he rubbed Snape's face in it. The girl who Snape deeply loved had loved the man whom he hated after suffering years of persecution by him, Snape was torn. He 'loved' Harry in a way due to Lilly but every time he saw ...

The spell (used in the movie) was used in the presence of spiders. It's really that simple, I think. I used a Search function on my PDF of the book and it produced "No results." It seems to be an invention of the film and one only used in the presence of spiders. Why would Harry use it when there were no spiders around?

Note: My answers are based primarily on the books themselves and do not use many details (or lack thereof) from the movie. Azkaban is/was the most feared prison in the London side of the wizarding world. This is because of the cold dark cells combined with the Dementor guards. During the time that Voldemort was left powerless, the Dementors had nowhere ...

Firstly, understand that these spells were not present in the book and were part of the movies only. In the book, the bank robbery and the cart ride go very different from what has been shown in the movie. It is not mentioned that they fell from such a great height and how Hermione saved everyone. So this was added/changed by whoever created the movie ...

This has been asked on various forums for a long time with no answer I'm afraid, I have personally trawled through hours of really good swing music trying to find it. To no avail, each time I think "its got to be by __" no joy All I can conclude that is a piece of stock music, or a throwaway by John Williams. I'd love to be proved wrong though as it really ...

I think there are a few possibilities here. The first possibility is that Snape could have fudged it as @Liath suggested in his answer. However, the OWLs were external exams marked by external examiners. Although Snape has influence over the teaching of the course, the actual examination was done independently (similar to the GCSE system in UK which Rowling ...

A purely speculative answer. To qualify for Newt Potions they would have had to have received high grades in their previous year (during the events of The Order of the Phoenix). At that time Professor Snape was potions master. It's well known that Snape played favourites and often made exceptions for Slytherin children who's parents were associated with ...

Thats a movie thing (I agree... with @TylerShads about the filmmakers trying to be comical) it affects them all equally in the books. Harry mentions smelling a flowery smell and then smelling it again later as Ginny walks up. It has a different aroma for everyone who smells it, reminding each person of the things that they find most attractive, even if ...

" I could not understand why he portrayed himself as angry, ferocious, tough and mischievous to his students? " First, among other things, because he was a high-IQ, low-social-IQ geek, who had to develop a tough bullying exterior to survive all his life. He clearly hated incompetents (thus total offense at Neville's entire existence). He disliked ...

While the (lack of) protection of the cloak's wearer from the spells was well explained in KeyBrd's answer, the invisibility was not, so I'd like to address that. It was established throughout the books that the cloak is an exceptional one, not losing its properties, etc. However, some devices can penetrate it. One of them is Moody's magical eye, as ...
