Continuity mistake: At the Ministry of Magic, as Yaxley is reprimanding Ron, who is disguised as Reg Cattermole, the initial on Yaxley's Ministry tie pin changes direction. In one shot, the letter "M" is tilted to the left, and in a subsequent shot, it's slanted in the opposite direction.

Continuity mistake: Luna's dad pulls Harry aside at Bill and Fleur's wedding to tell him that he fully supported Dumbledore and now supports Harry. He's wearing a silver pendant in the shape of the Deathly Hallows symbol. In the close-up of the jewelry, it is over his yellow vest. In the consecutive medium shot, it is partly under the same vest.

Continuity mistake: When Hermione removes her parents' memories at the start of the film, she points her wand at them and says "Obliviate", turning her wand hand so that her palm faces inwards/upwards. In the very next shot, however, her palm is facing outwards/downwards, with no time to change in between. (00:02:20)

Continuity mistake: When Hermione and Harry are sitting on the rocks by the cliff, Hermione is putting down a closed book. When the camera angle switches to seeing Hermione from behind, it appears the wind has blown the book open, but when the camera switches back to a front view, the book is closed again. One final switch, and the book is open yet again, flapping in the wind. (01:23:15)

Continuity mistake: The paper on which Luna's dad draws the symbol of the Deathly Hallows first has 4 large smudges, the largest being the one on top. Cut to the next shot and the largest smudge is now on the bottom, and their general appearance has changed. (01:54:00)

Continuity mistake: In the second to last shot, where Lord Voldemort is drawing the Elder Wand out of Dumbledore's hands, and then thrusts the wand into the air, Lord Voldemort's arm has hair on it. In the book, he is described as completely hairless, and in every other shot in every other movie, they have been careful to remain true to this.

Trivia: The reason Crabbe was not in the Deathly Hallows part 1 or 2 was because he was arrested because of marijuana and drugs he had and grew in his home. So that other kid was replicated but you can tell the difference.

More trivia for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1

Question: After Harry and Ron find the sword of Gryffindor, how do they find Hermoine again? The camp had enchantments and spells around it to keep them safe and Harry had to leave the protection set up around camp.

crystalsbella

Chosen answer: Because Harry already knew where the camp was. The protection spells they use (Harry is shown at one point casting them as well) seem to be sort of like the Secret Keeper spell. If you cast them or they are cast on you, it allows you to see through the spells. Also, don't forget that the deluminator led Ron right to the general vicinity of the camp and that the Snatcher team could smell Hermione's perfume through the spells earlier.
