7 Powerful Harry Potter Scenes That Did Not Make It To The Movies Finally Come To Life Thanks To This Illustrator

People say that the book is always better than the movie. Mostly because the movie leaves things out. To help Potterheads visually revisit their favorite moments from the series, artist Katie Knudson from Orlando, Florida, is drawing Harry Potter movie scenes that didn’t make the films, and probably even J.K. Rowling would be happy to see them.

“My mom read Harry Potter books to me as I grew up,” Katie told Bored Panda. “Even the last one which came out when I was in high school. It formed an exceptional bond between the two of us!”

Katie came up with the idea for her fanart project when someone reminded her of the scene where Luna randomly walks up to Harry and proclaims her support for him. “I just thought it was a great scene and I felt inspired to draw it really quickly. It was so well received that I realized I wasn’t the only one who missed these forgotten and deleted scenes, so I just kept finding them and drawing them!” The artist always tries to cover the famous movie scenes that are important character moments. “Anything emotional or formative for a character, like the state of Neville’s parents. It makes me sad when that kind of character development is forgotten.”

“It can take anywhere from 10-20 hours to go from planning and sketching the scene, all the way to releasing it online,” Katie said. “I try to spend as much time as possible making them accurate to the text as I can.” Continue scrolling and enjoy this compilation of wonderful Harry Potter fanart. And if you really like them, you can support Knudson on Patreon.

This is an artist interpretation since the books never actually mentioned Harry's or Hermione's skin colors. J.K. Rowling purposefully left out those descriptive details so kids could easily relate to the characters.

I originally thought of Harry and Hermionie being white because they come from Europe or the UK. But I kind of like the creative interpretation.

Jaded Queen

Well even if their linege was open to interpretation, it was pretty much hinted that they r white, not even brown. Because Harry was described as having green eyes, which r pretty rare in a black person. And Hermione she had light brown hair with bushy puffed up hair, which is not exactly used to describe black people's hair. I never thought for once while reading the books that the three could be black. U know it never did strike. Nd no I m not being racist.

I have no idea why these parts of the books didn't make it into the movies. These are some of the best parts of the books that made me laugh and get a better understanding of the connection between Harry and his friends and favorite teachers. Plus, anytime Draco gets hurt is GOLD.

Why is Hermione black? I m not being racist. But in the books she has brown, voluminous hair. Nd they used Emma Watson in movies, so it's just very odd.

Kiki

I think she's half black. The brown frizzy hair would make sense then because most black people naturally have black hair and I don't see Hermione dying her hair.

OK. These were amazing. But, I have an issue. The comments saying that Harry and Hermione aren't black. But what difference does it make? Skin color was never really specified. Ok, maybe once in GoF, but "white face" can mean fear or a state of total shock. But skin color doesn't matter. They are still heroes. They will always be heroes. People can have imaginations and vision them how they want. Sure, Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe were white. But J. K. Rowling didn't direct the movies. So stop hating on the comics. They were amazing and well drawn!

I LOVED THE LAST ONE HEART IS SCREAMING!!! I've always hated the way the movies did it. They completly erased the true meaning behind the kiss! The entire point was that Hermionie liked the fact that Ron actually cared abot the house elves! My inner Potterhead has always heald a grudge on Hollywood for totally trashng the books.

I can’t upload a Picture, but in book 3, chapter 21, there is a line that clearly states “Hermiones white face was sticking out from behind a tree.” If you don’t believe me go look.

Except for the fourth, I'm quite content with the movie. Some things are just better left out in the books. Although, I still kinda wish they did put the Neville bit more in the movie, it made his role and fate connection to Harry so much more made sense.

she also had to approve the actors/actresses who were in the Cursed Child play, just because the author gives the okay for something, doesn't mean that is what fits their vision.

I still think Hermoine should have ended up with Harry. That's the only part of the series that never felt right.

Jaded Queen

I agree! I like Ginny too. But it felt forced nd Harry had such huge understanding with Hermione that Ron never had( before 6, 7, since uptill then j.k had already decided who will end with who). Also Hermione's nature complimented Harry's, Ginny was Soo much like him. Always felt she was more like a sister to him. Anyway the Hermione-harry angle was worth exploring. J.k herself thought (almost wrote) of an ending where they ended together.

"White face" can also refer to being scared and losing pigment out of shock.
