Harry Potter’s wizarding world is a special place where fans can escape from the harsh realities of reality, but Hogwarts isn’t much better in terms of magical fun. Between the dreadful drama and the profound symbolism, the movies can be downright depressing.
There are several reasons why The Sorcerer’s Stone is still popular today, but it’s a classic for a reason. While this scene pales compared to the franchise’s later, more serious scenes, it is still a thrilling experience for fans.
Battle In The Chamber
This tense fight from the Chamber of Secrets had fans on the edge of their seats. It was a thrilling battle that viewers love to watch to this day, with the Phoenix blinding the Basilisk and Harry finally slaying the menacing creature.
Harry’s Patronus Spell
This touching scene from Harry Potter and Azkaban Prisoner is hard to forget. While fans, like Harry, hoped that his father would use the Patronus to save him and Sirius Black from the Dementors, they were disappointed to learn that this was not the case.
Harry And Cedric’s Graveyard Scene
Cedric Diggory had become such a beloved character in such a short time that fans were understandably heartbroken when Voldemort killed him. Just when fans thought they’d escaped the tension of the Tri-Wizard Cup competitions. One of the franchise’s most intense and crushing scenes appears.
Sirius Black’s Tragic Murder
The audience first saw Sirius appear to save Harry from Lucius’ wrath. They likely assumed he had come to save the day; however, this was not the case. Due to this heartbreaking loss, The Order of the Phoenix is one of the franchise’s most tragic films.
Harry And Dumbledore’s Cave Journey
Although difficult to watch, this scene in Half-Blood Prince is most symbolic. When Harry and Dumbledore went down to the cave to get the locket Horcrux. The professor knew precisely what he had to do when he saw Voldemort’s layers of protection spells.
Dobby’s Honorable Death
If fans didn’t already despise Bellatrix Lestrange, this death scene from The Deathly Hallows Part 1 was sure to persuade them otherwise. She didn’t just murder one of everyone’s favourite House-elves. But she also took the life of the beloved Sirius Black.
The Resurrection Stone
The audience was caught off guard when Harry said, “I am ready to die,” in The Deathly Hallows Part 2. Fans of the franchise, on the other hand, were moved by the touching scene with Harry and the spirits of his loved ones, who promised to be with him “until the end.”
Harry’s Final Comeback
After seeing Harry willingly sacrifice himself in The Deathly Hallows Part 2 after discovering he was a Horcrux, fans’ hearts sank. Despite this, viewers worldwide were relieved that it couldn’t be done given that the part of Voldemort’s soul in Harry died, not Harry himself.
Snape’s Final Truthful Moments
When the audience finally learns about Snape’s allegiance to Harry’s family. Fans were moved to tears by his heartbreaking backstory and all he had done to protect Harry over the years. It was one of the film’s most memorable scenes.
