7 Brilliant Harry Potter Scenes the Movies Ruthlessly Cut

The upcoming TV show must include these gems — or else.

7. The Marauders Sending Their Regards

In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry first gets his hands on the Marauder’s Map — an artifact that genuinely bothers Severus Snape when he gets a hold of it. Snape’s attempt to unlock the Map didn’t work out quite well: just like in his school days, the Marauders just humiliated him through snarky and witty messages.

6. Hermione Clowning on Her Stalker

In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Hermione Granger had one of her most unhinged moments. After having been bullied by a reporter Rita Skeeter for the entire school year, Hermione finally learned her stalker’s secret and locked her in a jar in her Animagi form, effectively holding the reporter hostage and torturing her.

5. McGonagall Being an Unexpected Bro

In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Minerva McGonagall was one of the biggest Dolores Umbridge haters on par with Harry himself. When Umbridge sent The Boy Who Lived to confess his misbehavior to McGonagall and he told her his story, the Transfiguration Professor replied with a simple, “Have a biscuit, Potter.”

4. Umbridge Getting a Medical Advice

The fifth book featured many brilliant scenes of the antagonism between Umbridge and McGonagall that didn’t make it into the movie. The career advice session was among the best: after Umbridge nearly coughed her lungs out trying to interrupt her, McGonagall hit her with a sudden “May I offer you a cough drop, Dolores?”

3. Harry Breaking After Learning His Mistake

The finale of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix the Book was incomparably darker than the movie’s. After Sirius Black’s death, Harry finally opened his godfather’s present and realized he could have just contacted Sirius via the Mirror and prevented his death. That realization absolutely crushed The Boy Who Lived.

2. Harry Performing a Verbal Takedown

In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Harry and Snape’s rivalry and mutual hatred reached its peak, and for a good reason. The Occlumency classes exhausted them both, but Snape was wrong in assuming he could easily target the tired boy. Harry’s bite-back with an iconic “There’s no need to call me sir, Professor” was a verbal KO.

1. Ginny Ridiculing Her Older Brother

The Book Ginny Weasley was the biggest menace in her entire family, and the movies killed her character. One of The Half-Blood Prince’s most iconic Ginny scenes saw her clowning on Ron: as her brother wondered whether she’d invented a cool tattoo for him, too, she put the boy in his place with an instant “A Pygmy Puff, but I didn’t say where” line that left everyone rolling on the floor laughing.
