25 Mistakes in Harry Potter Movies You Probably Missed

Don’t we all wish to attend school at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry? Oh, what fun it would be. The closest we can get to it is to immerse ourselves in the wonderful movies that bring the dream world to life! As millions of fans out there go crazy about discovering Platform Nine and Three-Quarters at the King’s Cross station, we also know that even the greatest of all movies is bound to have a few mistakes.

Have you spotted these mistakes?

The novel makes for an interesting and engrossing read, while the movies take it up a few notches and place us right in the middle of Harry Potter’s world through the sheer brilliance of CGI effects. Even though novel-loyalists don’t spare a chance to insult the film adaptations, the spellbinding watch has seldom left fans with much to criticise. However, there have been instances of just plain stupid errors in the movie that you may have missed. And quite obviously, you missed it simply because you were caught up in its sheer visual brilliance.
