This is what’s known as creative license

As you know, I’m reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I noticed this:

Professor Dumbledore was now looking down at Harry, who looked right back at him, trying to discern the expression of the eyes behind the half-moon spectacles.

“Did you put your name into the Goblet of Fire, Harry?” Dumbledore asked calmly.

But then I thought back to the movie. Dumbledore doesn’t seem too calm.

Dumbledore

And I thought I was so clever, too, until I came across this while searching for this gif. Whatever, I’m still clever.

  1. Ah, you’ve finally encountered the bane of all Potterheads’ existence in the book-to-movie adaptation.

    1. I’m finding The Goblet of Fire to be chock full of things that I was never aware of. Makes sense though… it is a 600 page book.

  2. I didn’t like Michael Gabon’s portrayal of Dumbledore at all. Too harsh, etc. The ending in the movie drove me crazy also. Another case of the books far surpassing the movies!

  3. hahaha That is a keen observation!

    1. I thought so… I was a little disappointed to find it had already been pointed out.

Don’t be afraid. I won’t smite you. Probably.
