Muggles J.K. Rowling is a famous British novelist best known as the creator of the Harry Potter series. After being rejected many times Rowling finally was called by Editor Barry Cunninghan who gave her the opportunity of publishing Harry Potter’s book number one. In this paper I would be discussing the similarities and differences between the book and the film of Harry Potter’s book number three. Difference number one starts at the beginning of the movie. In the book Harry receives a clipping from the Daily Prophet that is supposed to help him with his future. On the other hand, in the movie Harry receives a cake that reminded him that it was his birthday. In difference number one the film omitted Molly’s pride in Percy’s becoming Head Boy. Difference number three is called trips. In the book Harry and his friend had two trips to Hogsmeade. In the film the producers decided to only present one trip. The film also excluded the scene outside Hogsmeade when Ron was being bullied by Draco and Harry. In the books this scene was replaced by one that shows Draco and his friends bulling Ron and Hermione. Difference number four has to do with Harry Potter’s books. In the book, Harry produces a copy of Hagrid’s book called Monster. This scene is completely invisible in the film. On the other hand in the movie, is Fudge who made the copy of the book. Difference five is about Hermione and how she slaps Draco. In the book Hermione slaps Draco when she was returning with Hagrid, Harry and Rom from a Care of Magical Creature lesson. On the other hand, in the film, Hermione slaps Draco when she is on her way to Hagrid’s hut. In the book she just slaps him. In the film, she pints her wand and him then punches him in the face.

With quick cuts you can hide so many things” (A1). The whole move was a new experience not only for the actors, but also to the filmmakers. Finally we can conclude that even though the movie and the book of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban have a ton of differences, they both capture the spirit aand the history of Harry’s personality and life. Harry had no family as we can read in the book from J.K Rowling, “Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia, and their son, Dudley, were Harry’s only living relatives. They were Muggles, and they had a very medieval attitude toward magic” (2). This films proves that you don’t have to share the same blood as other people to considerate the family.Friend can be your chosen family.
