Trivia

Quotes

Professor McGonagall: Mraow!
Dumbledore: I should have known that you would be here, Professor McGonagall.


Goofs

(at around 1h 45 mins) In one scene, Hermione calmly says the word "Voldemort" without the customary flinch or shudder. However in all future scenes and sequels, Hermione is clearly reluctant to say the name and does not overcome this fear until Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. However, as Hermione is Muggle-born and is still young, it is possible she does not yet know the full significance of the name.


Crazy Credits

Richard Bremmer (the face and voice of Lord Voldemort) is credited as "He Who Must Not Be Named", Lord Voldemort's title.
