Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme hosted by Uncorked Thoughts and Lunar Rainbows. The idea is to get Harry Potter fans together and discuss our favorite things about the series; be it a favorite moment, character, magical item, spell, quote or object from the books, films or J.K Rowling herself.
This week is: If you could change one thing in the first film, what would it be?
Firstly, I would add in The Midnight Duel from the book. I love the fact that two 11-year-old boys, Harry and Draco, are so egotistical that they arrange a duel at midnight. I know that Draco doesn’t actually show up to the duel but it still would have been great to see them arrange it.
Secondly, I’d make sure Peeves was at least mentioned. I think I was most disappointed with the fact that Peeves never features in any of the films. I would definitely put him in the first film because he was such a fun part of the book. He tormented students and faculty alike and I really liked Peeves for some reason even though he wasn’t integral to the story line.
What would you change?
