  • Over 7 books and 8 movies, Harry Potter is one of the few fictional series to have been
  • consistently good.
  • Bringing a lot of the elements from the books into the movie was a difficult task for the
  • filmmakers, but they succeeded and managed to add a lot more details into the movies,
  • which were never possible in the books.
  • So in this video we will show you 32 Easter Eggs and Details You Probably Missed in the
  • Harry Potter Movies.
  • #1.
  • In Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, the sign for “The Leaky Cauldron” is completely
  • black, probably to keep it a secret from the Muggles, but the sign reveals itself when
  • Harry and Hagrid approach it.
  • #2.
  • In Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, when Harry, Ron and Hermoine enter the Wizard's
  • Chess room, the remnants of Professor Quirrell’s chess match can be seen around the edge of
  • the room, giving the audience another clue that someone had come this way recently.
  • In the book, broken pieces aren’t mentioned, but the Flying Key’s broken wing is mentioned.
  • #3.
  • Despite many instances of Harry being noted as a “great wizard”, Harry does not, in
  • fact, cast a single spell during the entire first movie.
  • #4.
  • In the first movie, Draco Malfoy says to Ron “Red hair and a hand-me-down robe?
  • You must be a Weasley.”
  • This detail is carried over visually to the second film very well.
  • In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Ron’s robes are older than everyone else’s,
  • as they are hand-me-downs.
  • The Weasleys win a sizeable amount of money in lottery over the summer between second
  • and the third movie and sure enough his robes don't look too dingy in the third movie.
  • #5.
  • In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, a wig can be seen on the table of Professor
  • Gilderoy Lockhart, probably suggesting that he is bald.
  • #6.
  • In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, “Sherbet Lemon” is the password used to
  • enter Dumbledore’s office.
  • Albus Dumbledore was particularly fond of these Muggle sweets and in Harry Potter and
  • the Half-Blood Prince, there’s a bowl of them on his desk.
  • #7.
  • The opal necklace, which plays an important role in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,
  • can briefly `be glimpsed in the second movie inside a display case in Borgin and Burkes’
  • shop in Knockturn Alley when Harry first enters it.
  • #8.
  • In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Hermione can be seen tucking away her Time-Turner
  • early on.
  • Throughout the movie in fact, pretty much anytime someone comments on how she got there
  • or when she isn't wearing her jumper or robe, the Time-Turner is visible around her neck.
  • #9.
  • Early in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry sees a newspaper article with
  • a photograph of the Weasley family in Egypt.
  • Though it is never again mentioned in the movie, this is a very important plot point
  • in the book.
  • While on an inspection of Azkaban, the Minister of Magic had a copy of that paper, gave it
  • to Sirius Black, who recognized that Peter Pettigrew was disguised as Scabbers.
  • This is why he decided to break out of Azkaban, track down Scabbers at Hogwarts, and take
  • his revenge by killing him.
  • #10.
  • In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, in the scene with Dumbledore, Harry, and the
  • Pensieve, there is a 3D model of what looks like Hallows Symbol which becomes an important
  • symbol in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
  • Though the final book was not yet written when this movie came out, J.K.
  • Rowling had a lot of influence over the movie details and she added lots of objects and
  • plots in the movies that were referenced later.
  • #11.
  • In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, when the contestants enter the arena for the third
  • task, the Beauxbatons girls in the audience can be seen dancing the Macarena.
  • #12.
  • During the breakfast scene of the Great Hall in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,
  • students can be seen eating parodies of real world cereal brands with the names such as
  • Cheeri-Owls and Pixie-Puffs, with color schemes similar to those of Cheerios and Sugar Puffs
  • boxes, respectively.
  • #13.
  • In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, James Phelps and Oliver Phelps, who play Fred
  • and George in the franchise, make a cameo appearance in the picture of the original
  • Order of the Phoenix as their deceased uncles, Fabian and Gideon Prewett.
  • #14.
  • In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, when Sirius joins Harry in the room with the
  • Black family tree, to the lower left of the door is a Starbucks logo.
  • The “siren” has been stylized to be in keeping with the decor of the room, but she
  • is wearing a crown and holding both her fins aloft as in the Starbucks logo.
  • #15.
  • In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the smoke coming out of the love potion changes
  • color to that of whatever Hermione is describing.
  • The final scent that comes out of the potion is orange, as is Ron's hair.
  • That's why Hermione lies saying that she smells “spearmint toothpaste” because she obviously
  • doesn’t want to say “Ron’s hair” out loud.
  • Also, after Harry arrives at the burrow, Ron pokes Hermione’s lip and says she has toothpaste
  • on it.
  • #16.
  • In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Dumbledore reaches for a Tom Riddle memory
  • dated 1938.
  • He tells Harry that this was the first time he met Tom, but to the left there is a memory
  • labeled Tom Riddle that is dated 1937.
  • It is most likely someone else's memory relating to Riddle terrorizing two children in a cave
  • at the seashore, which is described in detail in the book.
  • #17.
  • Arthur Bowen, the child actor that plays Harry's son Albus Severus Potter in the epilogue of
  • the final movie, can be seen in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince buying roasted chestnuts
  • at a stand in Diagon Alley.
  • #18.
  • In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2, Professor Snape still helps the Order when
  • he redirects McGonagall’s spells to knockout his fellow Death Eaters.
  • He also takes their wands before he flies out the window to make sure they could no
  • longer harm any students.
  • In the books, there are no Death Eaters around him so it was a nice touch to add this detail
  • in the movie.
  • #19.
  • In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2, Lucius Malfoy’s Azkaban prisoner number
  • tattoo can be seen on his neck for a brief moment.
  • After Order of the Phoenix, he and other Death Eaters were arrested after they were caught
  • in the Ministry.
  • He only gets out when Voldemort started to take more power by Deathly Hallows.
  • #20.
  • In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2, when all the professors leave the castle
  • to cast the defensive shield, Professor Slughorn can be seen drinking a bottle of what looks
  • like liquid luck.
  • #21.
  • In Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, the Dursleys and all their neighbors own the
  • exact same make and model of car, in an effort to be as normal as possible and blend in with
  • everyone around them.
  • #22.
  • In Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, when Neville gets a Remembrall, he says he
  • doesn’t know what he has forgotten.
  • If you look closely, he is the only student on the table who is in a sweater and has most
  • likely forgotten his robes.
  • #23.
  • Snape’s first question to Harry in the Philosopher’s Stone in his potions class is: “What would
  • I get if I added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood?”
  • Asphodel is a type of lily and in the language of flowers it means ‘remembered beyond the
  • tomb’ or ‘my regrets follow you to the grave’ while wormwood is often associated
  • with regret or bitterness.
  • This suggests that Snape deeply regrets Lily Potter’s death.
  • #24.
  • In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, when Hagrid charges into Dumbledore's office
  • to defend Harry, he is seen carrying a dead rooster in his hands.
  • In the extended cut of the movie, Hagrid mentions that someone is killing the school roosters.
  • In the harry potter lore, the sound of a rooster is fatal to a basilisk.
  • That’s why Ginny killed them under Tom Riddle’s control.
  • It was also the rooster’s blood that was used to write on the walls.
  • #25.
  • In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Lucius Malfoy attempts to cast Avada Kedavra
  • on Harry after being tricked into freeing Dobby.
  • It wasn’t explained in the movies at that point that this spell instantly kills a person.
  • So Lucius was literally about to murder Harry in the middle of Hogwarts.
  • #26.
  • In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, a wizard played by Ian Brown from the band
  • “The Stone Roses” is seen reading the book ‘A brief history of time’ by Stephen
  • Hawking in the Leaky Cauldron, foreshadowing time travel that takes place later in the
  • movie.
  • #27.
  • In the credits of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the producers placed a naughty
  • Easter egg in the Marauder’s Map.
  • In one scene, two sets of foot prints can be seen in the bottom left corner representing
  • two people either having sex or making out.
  • Also, when the Map is opened for the first time, the name 'Newt Scamander' can be seen.
  • Scamander wrote the book “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them” that is mandatory
  • reading at Hogwarts, but he isn't a teacher there.
  • Scamander eventually got his own movie with “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”,
  • where it is revealed that he is friends with Albus Dumbledore, so in 'Harry Potter and
  • the Prisoner of Azkaban', he may be simply visiting.
  • #28.
  • In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, scenes featuring elves Dobby and Winky were cut due
  • to time constraints.
  • However, if you watch carefully in the first campsite scene, right after Ginny points to
  • something and says "Look!" you can see two House Elves riding on llamas.
  • #29.
  • In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, while Horace Slughorn is disguised as an arm
  • chair, you can visibly see his feet.
  • #30.
  • When Dumbledore visits a young Tom Riddle in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,
  • there is a picture of the cave where Tom hid one of his Horcrux.
  • There is also a brief close up that shows 7 rocks meticulously organized on Tom’s
  • windowsill, foreshadowing Voldemort’s plan to split his soul into seven Horcruxes.
  • #31.
  • At the beginning of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Lucius Malfoy takes a book out
  • of Ginny’s cauldron but when he puts it back you can see that he puts Tom Riddle's
  • diary in the cauldron as well.
  • There is even an inkling of confusion in Harry's face but he doesn't quite understand why.
  • This detail is explained at the end of the movie, but people usually miss it at the beginning.
  • #32.
  • Throughout the series, Weasley twins Fred and George are always shown in that order
  • on the screen, left to right, so that audience can easily tell them apart.7
