Over twenty years ago, the magical world of Harry Potter came to the big screen for the first time. Young witches and wizards all over the world devoured the first four books and now they could see their favorite story of good versus evil on the screen. We became so immersed that as children, we were willing to forgive the directors and editors for leaving out certain scenes to make the movies a standard view time (even though we would have happily sat through four hours of this).
As a lover of both the movies and books, I would not be surprised if we were to see a reboot of the beloved series when am well into my fifties. And yes, I will be there in robes for that as well. But still at times when rewatching the movies, I feel that some scenes were pertinent to character and plot development.
Many fans have mentioned their dismay when Peeves the Poltergeist was left out, along with the Death Day Party and many other tiny details that made the books magical. Personally, I’ve always been captivated by the dark and brooding Severus Snape. I will make the argument that Snape was probably one of the most important characters and is terrifyingly powerful. I mean, he was able to fool the Dark Lord for years, with his skills as a legilimens. Legilimency is the power to see into the minds of others. Snape was doing a lot of behind-the-scenes work in the books, and what we saw in the movies was only a small teaser of what he was capable of.
One of my favorite scenes that were left from the movie Prisoner of Azkaban was Snape’s tantrum in the Hospital Wing following Sirius Black’s escape from the Astronomy Tower.
So out of shear personal boredom, I recreated the scene, graphic novel style.
Disclaimer: I do not own these characters, these are merrily works of fan fiction.
And yes, there will be more to come…
