What We Miss Most About the Harry Potter Movies

The Harry Potter books by J.K Rowling has been hailed as a fantasy fiction phenomenon that has defined a generation. There were seven books in all, but it was translated into 8 movies since the last one 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' was split into two movies.

The final Harry Potter movie was aired in 2011, but of course after that came 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' which is an offshoot prequel set in the Harry Potter universe.

Some of the magical moments in the original series can never be replicated in any other spinoff series. These moments defined Harry Potter for many who grew up reading the books and watching the movies.


1. Dumbledore's Welcome Speech

At the start of every school year in almost all the books save the last, Dumbledore, the headmaster of Hogwarts will give a welcome speech at the start of term feast. His words were often comforting and uplifting. They became a symbol of resistance against Voldemort towards the end of the series.


2. Hagrid's Love for Dangerous Creatures

Hagrid was the half giant who was groundskeeper at Hogwarts, and soon he was promoted to the post of teacher. His love for untamed magical creatures led him to keep Aragog, a giant human eating spider as a pet. Other pets have included a baby dragon and a three headed dog called Fang.

3. The Yule Ball

One of the grandest events that happened in the trio's school life was probably the Yule Ball, which was held in conjunction with the Triwizard Tournament in 'Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire'. Everyone attends in dress robes, which are a definite one up from their usual uniforms. Also, we see Hermione really get dolled up for the first time.

4. The Trio Sitting Around the Common Room Fireplace

Almost every time Harry Potter hits a snag in figuring out the next step or trying to crack his head over new information, he'll confide in his two friends around the fireplace in the Gryffindor common room which has couches and a burning fireplace.

5. Neville Longbottom coming into his own

Neville Longbottom started out as a minor character that was meant to be clumsy and a comedic relief, but towards the end Neville led Hogwart's rebellion against Voldemort and his Death Eaters, since the trio were on the run looking for Horcruxes.He was instrumental in destroying the last Horcrux, which was the snake Nagini.
