Why Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 Had A Major Meltdown

The Book 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' Is So Much Better Than The Film.

Without doubt, Harry Potter is on of the Box Office's biggest hits of all time. With eight films created from seven books, what could possibly go wrong? Well a few things... 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2' was nowhere near the top standard of the book itself. It seems the film took some different turns to actually what was stated in the book. Below is a list of things where Part 2 of the finale went wrong.

1 - The Epilogue May Have Crashed And Burned

Nineteen Years Later

When a book franchise comes to an end, a lot of writers give a slight teaser that the franchise could potentially continue on one day in the coming future. Just like JK Rowling did at the end of the Deathly Hallows book. Rowling gave us a quick look at our beloved favourite characters nineteen years on since the battle of Hogwarts. Obviously they're all grown up, but they even have kids.

The incredibly talented director David Yates initially intended to conclude the final film of the franchise with the well known epilogue from the end of the book. We were given high hopes for the epilogue at the end of the film, but it seems we were slightly let down. We see in the film the boy who lived is standing with Ron and Hermione with their children on Platform nine and three quarters. It seems that no one really cares that Harry is stood on the platform, and he doesn't get to explain to his children why everyone has taken notice of him. In the book Ron also makes a little joke about all the people on the platform squabbling about him because he is remarkably famous. But sadly in the film, that never happens.

2 - The Army of House Elves Led By Kreacher Never Happened


This is one of the major things director David Yates left out of Deathly Hallows Part One and Two. It is stated in the book that Harry Potter gives Kreacher RAB's fake locket as a sign of his gratitude for the house elf. From here on wards, Kreacher gives Harry Potter all the respect he has. It is also stated that Kreacher is the house elf that leads the other house elves into a small battle during the same time the battle of Hogwarts takes place. But sadly in the films, this never happens.

As the house elves battle never existed in the films, viewers were left stranded as to what actually happened to Kreacher in the end. It seems David Yates left out a vital part here. As it happens, Kreacher is the only living being that remains who is connected to Sirius Black. This is the only living family Harry actually ever had the chance to know.

3 - The Elder Wand Never Even Got Snapped

Harry Snapping The Elder Wand In The Finale

Towards the end of Part Two of the film finale, Harry Potter is seen snapping the Elder Wand in two pieces and throws it off a bridge. I'm sorry? What? Did Harry really snap the most powerful wand in half and dispose of it? I'm afraid so.

In the book 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' at no point in the book does Harry even snap Dumbledore's Elder Wand into two pieces then decide to lob it off a bridge of great height. It is stated in the book that Harry mends his own wand that got broken by Hermione. He then goes round to Dumbledore's tomb and puts the Elder Wand inside the tomb where it rightfully belongs.

4 - Teddy Lupin. I'm Sorry, Who?

Remus Lupin

Lupin and his wife Tonks eventually get married and have a son and call him Teddy. Lupin and Tonks decide to make Harry Potter the Godfather of Teddy. All Potterheads needed to know this given what happened to the happy couple. This then brings Harry's story a full circle.

However, in the film 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pat 2' we never even found out about Lupin's son Teddy. But towards the end of the finale Harry is standing in the Forbidden Forest as he prepares to face the consequences as he approaches He Who Must Not Be Named. Before Harry comes face to face with Voldemort, the spirits of Sirius Black, James and Lily Potter and Remus Lupin. Just slightly after Harry finds about the Resurrection Stone, Lupin starts rambling on about his son.

This left fans in the cinema mind blown as not a word about Teddy had been breathed at any point in the film. So Potterheads watching the film were left hanging the balance as to wear this son of Lupin's came from. It's something we were automatically meant to know.
