It’s no secret that Harry Potter has had a powerful effect on the entire generation of millennials. Millions of kids like you and me grew up reading books and watching films of the captivating Wizarding World, and all these characters and stories are surely ingrained into our memory. No wonder any time we hear something about the Boy Who Lived, the hair on our arms stands up and we're taken on a blast to the past.

So, this time, we are looking at some of the most interesting, thought-provoking, and illuminating scenes that didn’t make it into the final cut of the Harry Potter theatrical releases. The real HP fans may have already spotted them in the uncut releases or extended versions, but if you've only experienced the magical world on the big screen, this may be something new!

And honestly, you don’t need to be a Potterhead to realize every single scene is pure gold, from Ginny grabbing Harry's hand in Deathly Hallows to Dudley telling Harry he's not a waste of space.

In a previous interview, Andy McCray, the founder and editor of the website Harry Potter Fan Zone, told us that such a passionate and enthusiastic following of the Harry Potter film series is due to the fact that it embedded itself in the zeitgeist of the 2000s.

For the millennial generation who grew up reading books, the Harry Potter world serves as a form of fantasy escapism in this increasingly hectic world. “An entire generation grew up reading the books and watching the films, and the characters and stories have transcended the page to became part of popular culture," Andy said.

Yes! These bastards who made the film show them reaching out to one another and never even touching hands! And when they're lying dead in the Great Hall, their hands STILL NEVER TOUCH! Utterly heart-breaking! This gives me peace at last.

The story of The Boy Who Lived is still relevant today because it has entertainment and nostalgia factors to it. Andy explained that ”the HP movies deal with themes—love and hate, good versus evil, overcoming adversity and standing up against injustice, finding inner strength—which are particularly relevant in the modern world.” The themes are timeless and manage to touch viewers of virtually any generation.

Before I'd seen any film, I did imagine Peeves looking like how Rick Mayall did in Drop Dead Fred. But was disappointed that Mayall's scenes as Peeves had been cut. He's in the books so much, it's criminal he wasn't in the films. Especially in Order of the Phoenix.

They should’ve put this in. Would’ve had a lot more quirkiness.

I think this was intended to foreshadow the twist that Ginny was doing horrible things without knowing it.
