Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: Book vs. Movie

I listened to the first half of Prisoner of Azkaban on audio that I had checked out through Overdrive. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to finish listening to it before it expired. Hence why it took me three months to have the chance to finish it by reading my own copy! I had forgotten how much I absolutely love the third book in this beloved series!! SO MUCH LOVE! So I’m very pleased to bring you the third edition of Harry Potter movie comparison post!

WARNING: BOOK/MOVIE SPOILERS AHEAD!

Movie: Harry receives the Firebolt from Sirius at the very last scene that arrives with a hippogriff feather.

VS

Book: Harry mysteriously receives a Firebolt as a Christmas present. Nobody can figure out who its from. Hermione suspects its from Sirius whom she believes to be a criminal still at the time. She turns it in to Professor McGonagall who proceeds to have it thoroughly checked for jinxes before returning it back to Harry to use to win the Quidditch Cup, which they do in fact win.

Movie: Harry uses the memory of his parents “just talking” to defeat the dementor bogart when he is training with Lupin.

VS

Book: Ron gets attacked in the middle of the night in the boys dormitory. His bed curtains are slashed and McGonagall comes out in her dressing gown to see whats going on. There is actually a deleted freeze frame (seen above) that I think is from this scene but we never actually see it in the movie.

Movie: Harry sneaks out to Hogsmeade under the invisibility  cloak, and throws snowballs at Malfoy and depants Crabbe and gets away with it.

VS

Book: Harry throws mud at Malfoy but his cloak slips in the process and Malfoy sees his head. He then runs off and tells Snape who confiscates the Marauders Map from him. The map proceeds to insult him in more than one way. Snape then summons Lupin to read the map who takes it from there.

Movie: As stated previously–at the end of the film, Sirius flys off on Buckbeak after having a heartfelt goodbye with Harry and Hermione. That is the last we see or hear from him until the next film.

VS

Book: Sirius sends a letter to Harry with a tiny cute owl while Harry is on the Hogwarts Express heading back to the Dursleys for the Summer. This is the point in time when he reveals to Harry that it was him that sent him the Firebolt at Christmas. He also tells Ron to keep the owl who had sent the letter so that he would have a new pet to replace Scabbers.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets: Book Vs Movie

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!

stuff-i-like-119-5

Movie: Dobby levitates and drops a cake right on top of the wife of Vernon’s boss. 

VS

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.

VS

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 and the Weasleys (+Hermione) encounter the Malfoys after getting their books in Diagon Alley, trade insults and leave thereafter. 

VS

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.

VS

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.

VS

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!

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I Still Need To Watch

This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

I actually did a topic similar to this one back when I was given the choice to come up with my own topic. Check out my Top Ten Book-To-Movie Adaptations (Good & Bad).

So this week’s topic was a little tricky at first until I did some research and realized how many  movie adaptations I haven’t read the book of or how many movies I’ve seen but have not read the book of. But, these are just the books I have not seen the movie for.

1.The Maze Runner by James Dashner: I know it’s shameful I haven’t seen the movie! I read the book years ago and have yet to see the movie because I wanted to wait until I could reread the book! I’ve heard good things though!

2. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini: Another one I’ve read the book of but have never seen the movie for!
