Does magic prevent all errors? Not necessarily, especially when filming quickly and not paying close attention to all the details. Take Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, for example: the film clearly contains an oversight that, in a way, destroys the myth of the wizarding world. Fortunately for the film crew, this is difficult to notice with the naked eye.
The omission occurs when young Harry has just found the Mirror of Erised at Hogwarts, a magical object with the power to reveal his deepest desire to anyone who looks at it. In Harry’s case, of course, it was his parents, James and Liliam. Fascinated, Harry runs back to the Gryffindor dormitories to wake his friend Ron and tell him of his discovery.
He hides his friend – still in his pajamas – under his invisibility cloak and together they go up the stairs to see the object. But, when passing through the door in real life, Daniel Radcliffe (Harry) and Rupert Grint (Ron) drop the green cloth that covers them and which is used by the special effects team to visually create the invisibility cloak.
If you pause at exactly 1 hour, 33 minutes and 55 seconds, you can see this “green cover” as the two boys continue the scene as if nothing had happened! A mistake that could (should?) have been avoided if the filming, editing and special effects teams had paid attention.
