Artist Creates Amazing Illustrations Of “Harry Potter” Scenes That Didn’t Make The Movie

Comic artist, Katie Knudson picked up some mind-blowing scenes from the book series of Harry Potter. And amalgamated them into a comic series of her own. These scenes were either eliminated from or altered in the movies. Moreover, the final product of these comics has been carved out so beautifully that even J.K Rowling gave her a stamp of approval. It’ll make you want to reread the books all over again and relive the journey which began from platform 9 3/4.

“When I was rereading the Harry Potter books a few years ago, I realized how much my perception of the characters had changed because of their movie portrayals,” Katie told BuzzFeed. “So now I scour through the books and pick out scenes that are great, emotional character moments and draw them as accurately from the text as I can!”

The diversity of the characters tell a whole different story.

“I worked out a sort of alternate cultural family tree where characters are a lot more diverse than the expected mostly-white cast,” Katie said. “A few months after I started drawing them like that, the casting for The Cursed Child came out and Noma Dumezweni was playing Hermione. J.K. Rowling pinned a tweet about loving black Hermione, with my art in it, so it was really exhilarating getting the author’s stamp of approval on my art.”

The series of fantasy novels that circle around the life of a young boy persuaded Katie into standing up against injustice and becoming a better person.

“The books taught me a lot about friendship, how to be a better person, and how to stand up against injustice — which feels pretty relevant nowadays.”

“The truth.” Dumbledore sighed. “It is a beautiful and terrible thing, and should, therefore, be treated with great caution.”  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“There are all kinds of courage,” said Dumbledore, smiling. “It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.”

 

 

 

 

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“It is the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more.”

 

 

 

 

“Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“The thing about growing up with Fred and George,” said Ginny thoughtfully, “is that you sort of start thinking anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.”
