Harry Potter film errors you missed – ‘disappearing’ feet to crew ruining scenes

You might think you know everything about the Harry Potter films, but you'd be wrong.

The Hogwarts franchise is one of the highest-grossing film series of all time and has racked up a massive £6.18billion worldwide. Potter will be passed on from generation to generation.

But while anything is possible in the wizarding world, the muggle world is full of errors. Over the years, fans have spotted several glaring mistakes in the Potter movies that weren't patched up before they hit the big screen.

It's been over 20 years since Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone, the first film, was released in cinemas. Daily Star has revealed the biggest mistakes spotted in the Harry Potter films.

Harry plays Musical Chairs

One of the biggest errors in the first film was a big continuity slip up during one of the big feasts. Harry is seen sitting on two different sides of the table in the Great Hall during one scene from Philosopher's Stone. At the start of the scene, he can be seen on the right-hand side of the table, sitting across from Hermione.

But in a blink and you miss it moment, a thrilled Harry is suddenly sitting next to Hermione on the left-hand side of the table on the other side of Ron's brother Percy. No time is supposed to have passed as it's the very next shot so it's unclear how Harry could have gotten around the lengthy table in mere seconds.

Film crew spotted in scene

Everyone remembers when Harry and Draco Malfoy are made to duel in front of their peers in Defence Against the Dark Arts class. It's the scene where Gilderoy Lockhart (Kenneth Branaugh) is sent to the floor by Snape, who always wanted the Dark Arts job.

When Harry gets the better of Malfoy in the face-off, Snape grabs Malfoy by the scruff of the neck and pulls him to the floor. And it's in this moment that you see a cameraman filming behind a row of students.

Hermione's feet go missing

In Order of the Phoenix, Hermione is picked up by giant Grawp, Hagrid's not-so-little brother, in the Forbidden Forest. She plucks up enough courage to tell him off, prompting him to put her back down on the ground.

Grawp is created using CGI (Computer Generated Images), and it appears something went wrong because Hermione's feet are nowhere to be seen. She's quite literally been whisked off of her feet, and not in a good way.

Robes gone wrong

In Deathly Hallows Part II, Harry's parents, Lily and James, are seen getting sorted into Gryffindor. The flashback scene shows Lily joining James and Sirius, Harry's uncle, at the Gryffindor table.

But the boys are already wearing Gryffindor ties, when they're supposed to be wearing plain black robes and a neutral tie like Lily.

Broken pot

Harry and Hermione use the Time-Turner to go back in time and rescue Sirius and Buckbeak in Prisoner of Azkaban. Poor Ron has to sit this one out as he's got an injured leg, thanks to an attack from the Whomping Willow.

Harry and Hermione are trying to make sure Buckbeak doesn't get killed, so they distract Fudge, the Minister for Magic, and the executioner. Hermione throws a rock at a vase to make a racket.

Weirdly, though, one shot showing the past sees the vase smashed into little pieces, whereas another shot reveals that only one piece of the vase has been broken off. The damage should be the same.

Angry Dumbledore

Perhaps one of the most infamous 'blunders' came in the Goblet of Fire, when Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) furiously rushes over to Harry, grabs him and asks: "Did you put your name in the Goblet of Fire?". Book readers aren't happy about it.

It's because in the books, JK Rowling had the Hogwarts headmaster asking Harry about the issue "calmly". It seems that in the movies, Dumbledore had a shorter fuse.
