I’m finally posting my Chamber of Secrets Book Vs Movie comparison now that I was able to finish the next audiobook! Once again, this was not my first time reading it but my first time listening to the audiobook! So much love! Unfortunately, the library doesn’t let you renew audiobooks through Overdrive, so I haven’t been able to finish the third book, since it took it away from me while I was still only half way done! At least I was able to finish Chamber of Secrets on time! So here are my main comparisons in a somewhat chronological order!
WARNING: BOOK/MOVIE SPOILERS AHEAD!
Movie: Dobby levitates and drops a cake right on top of the wife of Vernon’s boss.
Book: Dobby does levitate the cake, however, it crashes all over Harry and the walls. Worse than that, Harry gets accused by the Ministry of Magic for performing a vanishing spell that Dobby used in order to disappear.
Movie: Ron and the twins rescue Harry from the Dursley’s using the car without entering the house.
Book: Fred and George physically enter the house and break into the cupboard under the stairs in order to get Harry’s trunk full of his Hogwarts stuff out.
Movie: Harry lands in a sketchy shop in Nocturn Alley using floo powder,gets trapped in a creepy hand, and moves on.
Book: Harry lands in a sketchy shop that Draco and Luscious Malfoy happen to be in and overhears their conversation with the shopkeeper.
Movie: Harry and the Weasleys (+Hermione) encounter the Malfoys after getting their books in Diagon Alley, trade insults and leave thereafter.
Book: Mr. Weasley and Luscious Malfoy actually get into a physical fight in the bookstore. CRAZY RIGHT?!
Movie: Halloween is not even really mentioned in the movie, however Mrs. Norris is found petrified the night of Halloween.
Book: Nearly Headless Nick invites Harry, Ron and Hermione to celebrate his 500th death day on Halloween Night (I think it’s 500) which basically just celebrates how long he’s been dead. They go to a party with tons of ghosts and are bored out of their minds.
Ok so this is a fun fact one, not really a difference in the movie, just a cool tidbit of info!
Movie: All we know is that Ron just absolutely hates and is terrified of spiders.
Book: Ron tells Harry the reason he’s so scared of spiders is because when he was little, one of the twins turned his teddy bear into one!
Well there you have it folks, the main differences I thought I would share! I’m hoping to keep posting them as I go through the books again!
