Trivia

Terry Gilliam, who was J.K. Rowling's personal choice to direct Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001), was approached to direct this film. However, Gilliam said, "Warner Bros. had their chance the first time around, and they blew it."


Quotes

Bellatrix Lestrange: I killed Sirius Black!


Goofs

Some have suggested Aragog is a great deal smaller in this movie than he was in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, but this only true to an extent, as spiders generally shrivel up pretty fast after dying. Add to this the fact that the persons around him this time around are quite a bit taller, plus the angles at which we saw him in his first appearance really complementing his statue while alive, and we have a very reasonable change which doesn't indicate any mistake or error by the filmmakers.


Crazy Credits

The end credits take their shape from what look like ink spills, resembling the appearance of the collected memories when they are poured into Dumbledore's Pensieve.
