Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1

Corrected entry: Near the beginning of the film, Lupin grabs Harry and asks him "What creature sat in the tank the first time Harry Potter came into my office?" to which Harry replies "A Grindylow." However, from the film's perspective, Harry never saw the Grindylow because that particular scene was omitted.


Correction: At some point, Harry would have gone into Lupin's office for the first time. Just because that scene wasn't directly represented in the film, it doesn't mean that it didn't occur off-screen.

Corrected entry: When Harry is looking through the files in Umbridge's office, he pauses at Dumbledore's profile. The file claims that Dumbledore's blood status is "Half-Blood," but he is in fact a "Pure Blood", because his father was a wizard and his mother was a witch.

Correction: That does not make him a "pure-blood." If you recall, Harry's father was a wizard and his mother a witch, but Harry is considered a "half-blood" because Lily Potter's parents were non-magical. The same may be true about Dumbledore's lineage. If either his witch mother or wizard father was muggle-born, or they had a parent who was, then he would indeed be a "half-blood." A wizard has to have a long (and in-bred) history of only magical ancestors to be considered "pure-blood."

Corrected entry: Before the wedding, Ginny asks Harry to zip up her dress, which he does. When the camera zooms out, the zipper is not all the way up, but when she turns to look at her older brother, it is all the way up.


Correction: Harry zips the dress all the way up right from the start, and it is all the way up the whole time. Also, the camera doesn't zoom out at any point in that scene.

Continuity mistake: When Xenophilius draws the Deathly Hallows symbol, he draws it so that the bottom of the line touches the bottom of the circle. The shot cuts away and back again when he draws the triangle, but the line is no longer touching the bottom of the circle. (01:49:40)
