Mistakes In Harry Potter And the Sorcerer’s Stone Movie1. During the scene with the troll, Hermione crawls to where the sinks are.If you look at the floor, you will see that there are only a few wet spots. In the very next shot, the whole floor is soaked. This occurs before the troll breaks all the sinks. It was one of the most common mistakes in Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone movie, yet fans didn’t notice it.

2. After entering the Key room, Harry says, “They’re not birds… I’ll bet one of them fits that door,” and as they reach the broomstick, the shadow of the overhead boom mic moves on the floor at the bottom right corner of the screen.

3. When Ron, Harry and Hermione rush to Hagrid after the end of the exams, and Harry is saying, “Why didn’t I see it before?”, Hermione is mouthing part of that line.

4. When Ron and Harry are on the train, Ron’s hair begins with a center part, but soon changes to side parting. It’s another one of the silliest mistakes in Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone movie that nobody noticed.

5. When Oliver Wood is explaining Harry about Quidditch, he struggles to put the Bludger back in the trunk. We can see a rod under the trunk lift and shake it so that the Bludgers appear to be moving on their own.

6. During chess when the queen drives her sword through Ron’s knight if you pause you can clearly tell that it’s a stunt double falling off the horse.

7. In the scene near the ending of the movie where Harry boards Hogwarts Express to go home, Hagrid stands on the platform to wave goodbye. He looks huge, as usual, but when he waves, his hand seems rather small compared to the rest of his huge frame. One of the very ordinary mistakes in Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone movie.

8. When Harry’s Uncle Vernon picks up the letters for Harry and tears them, you can see cuts made in the envelopes, to make it easier for him to tear all of them at once.

9. In the chess scene, when Ron falls off the horse, he is lying on his side on the floor with one knee bent and one foot is higher than the other. When Harry and Hermione run to check on him, one foot is on top of the other one.

10. Another one of the common mistakes in Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone movie happens when all of the letters are arriving from Hogwarts. At this moment, it is evident that the ones flying around the room are just pieces of paper and not thick envelopes containing letters.

11. Hermione has changed sides at the Gryffindor table in the scene following Harry’s sorting.

12. Malfoy has one notably crooked tooth. If you watch carefully, you will see that it changes sides throughout the movie.
