Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2

Continuity mistake: When the Snatchers run out of the forest toward the covered bridge, Neville is standing in the bridge's center. But when the three Snatchers are killed by the shield, Neville is now standing at the bridge's entrance. (00:50:50)

Continuity mistake: When Snape redirects Professor McGonagall's spell to Alecto Carrow, she falls on the lower platform. But after the camera angle changes, she is lying on the second platform with her brother Amycus.

Continuity mistake: During the epilogue, Hermione hugs her daughter Rose. In the first shot, Rose's left hand rests on her mother's back just below the shoulder. Cut to the following shot and the same hand is on Hermione's arm instead. (01:56:00)


Other mistake: In the final scene when Harry and Voldemort "connect" their wands, there is a close-up of Harry's face. Although the only light source seems to be the ball of fire between him and Voldemort, Harry's face is lit from his left.

Continuity mistake: During the final battle between Harry and Voldemort, Harry disarms Voldemort and his wand spins out of his hand counter-clockwise, then it cuts to the wand spinning towards Harry clockwise.

Character mistake: In Gringotts, when Harry and Ron cast the imperious curse they say "imperium" but should say "imperio", as said in Goblet of Fire.

Continuity mistake: When Nagini (the snake) is moving down the stairs to attack Ron and Hermione, it lunges from midway down the stairs, under the archway. After intercutting a shot of the duel between Voldemort and Harry, Nagini is lunging from the ground, far away from the staircase and the archway.

Continuity mistake: During the duel between Harry and Voldemort whilst they are on the Hogwarts staircase, there's a midshot of Voldemort casting a spell. His arm is at an extreme bend with his elbow close to the top of his head, and his forearm is above his head. The very next shot from a different angle, Voldemort's arm is straighter and his elbow is not bent, with his arm a considerable length away from his head.

Continuity mistake: After arriving in Hogsmeade, when Harry is talking to Aberforth Dumbledore, the table by the window has two chairs on one side of the table. A few minutes later, there's only one chair on that side, and the other chair is now at the end where there was previously none at all. (00:28:00)

Continuity mistake: When Filch is holding Mrs. Norris the cat's eyes are not red, but in all the other films they are.

Continuity mistake: When Ron is about to cast a spell to destroy Nagini the view of him pointing his wand starts out from behind him and Hermione, before the shot changes we see Hermione turn her head towards Ron. When the shot changes to face them Hermione is looking at the snake then turns her head again.

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Harry, Hermione and Ron have escaped Gringotts and land in the ocean, they then wash up on an island and Voldemort finds out Harry is hunting Horcruxes. During that time Harry says "There's something wrong with him". When he says that, the camera wobbles slightly indicating that there is a camera there.

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: Dobby's grave at the beginning of the movie has been moved further to the right of where it is was dug by Harry at the end of the Deathly Hallows Part 1.


Character mistake: When Harry, Hermione and Ron jump from the dragon and Harry has his vision he says he saw Rowena Ravenclaw. It wasn't Rowena, it was Helena - and then he didn't know to look for Helena's ghost.

Suggested correction: Harry's vision included heraldry associated with Ravenclaw House, so he surmised (correctly) that Voldemort's horcrux was an artifact that had once belonged to Rowena Ravenclaw. This turned out to be her Lost Diadem, which her daughter Helena (AKA the Grey Lady) had stolen long ago, only for Voldemort to recover and hide in the Room of Requirement.

Continuity mistake: When Harry jumps on the dragon, his hair is wet and messed, then it changes to dry and brushed and in the next angle, for a brief moment, it's back to wet and messed.

Revealing mistake: When Gregory falls in the fire and dies, while he is falling, you can very obviously tell that it's a stunt double who looks nothing like Josh Herdman.

Revealing mistake: When Lupin is on the castle bridge and reunites with his wife-right after the scene where Neville beckons the dark wizards that disintegrate in the force-field-if you carefully watch the right hand corner of the screen, a very obvious green screen error can be seen in the castle window.

Continuity mistake: In Limbo, while Dumbledore confirms that a part of Voldemort lived within Harry, the way he clasps his hands instantly changes. (01:33:20)


Continuity mistake: When Voldemort and his followers return for the final battle with Hagrid carrying Harry, the remaining building structure has fires in each section. When Harry and Voldemort land there during their duel, the fires are gone.

Other mistake: After Voldemort disapparates while Snape is dying, Harry asks Hermione for a flask for Snape's tears. She pulls a vial out of her purse. However, she hadn't had a purse during the entire battle, then has one at this moment. Afterwards, she no longer has the purse in any other scene.

Professor Albus Dumbledore: Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living and above all, those who live without love.

More quotes from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2

Trivia: In the scene where Hagrid has dropped a "dead" Harry Potter, look quickly at George. He turns his head to the right and yells "Fred!" Fred has already been killed by Bellatrix Lestrange so it seems he may have forgotten this in a moment of grief.
