Alterations from the book

  • The scuffle between Lucius Malfoy and Arthur Weasley is left out
  • In the book, Hermione was not at all upset about being called a "Mudblood," as she did not know what the term meant, but in the film she knows what it means and is deeply offended
  • Nearly Headless Nick's deathday party and Lockhart's valentine celebration are left out
  • Instead of simply trying to attack Harry for losing him Dobby, Lucius Malfoy tries to use the killing curse Avada Kedavra before Dobby stuns him
  • Virtually all of the foreshadowing hints that Ginny is acting strangely are left out
