    Trust me, it was Herminone. Because Ron said to her "Well if your so smart, you do it then" and she does.

    And JK said that Harrys eyes will play an important role.

    When you've read each book about 20-30 times each, information tends to stick in your head.

    I've thought of a new topic (rather silly one). What do you think they will leave out of the new movie. We know that they are missing out the Dursleys, but what else?

    A better question is probably "What are they leaving in?" Answer: not much.

    Your properly right. From the trailer we can see they've got the Dark Mark scene, the three Tasks, the Yule Ball and one lesson.

    Pretty much sums up the movie I think.

    Presumably they might make mention of Harry's little tête à tête with Voldemort at the end?

    What else needs to go in the movie? A lot of GoF is descriptions, the entire chapter on the world cup can be done in 30 seconds with a camera panning round the scene, like wise for a lot of the other events, like the tasks and the ball, ok the Dursley's have been axed, but they hardly play a huge role in this film, and would have been the obvious one to axe

    It was Harry!! Hermione probably did some good levitating too, but Harry definitely surprised himself by doing it perfectly, or so I remember. Right, I'm going to find the bit. I think it was book 3/4. That's another thing, Harry always seems surprised by his magical ability, as he's not a technical genius, but shows flashes of brilliance. Like with his Patronus in book 3, he thought his dad created it, but then clocked on that it was actually himself. He's pretty slow.

    EDIT: I found the bit! It's in the Goblet of Fire, chapter 26, pg 418. So I'll set the scene for you a bit. Harry, Ron and Hermione are practicing the 'Banishing Charm' in class while discussing some theory or something. Sorry about that rubbish synopsis. Anyway, Hermione does hers perfectly and everything, while Harry and Ron are having a wee bit of trouble; " 'I just want to know what Snape did with his first chance, if he's on his second one,' said Harry grimly, and his cushion, to his very great surprise, flew straight across the room, and landed neatly on top of Hermione's."

    I don't think so really. The opening chapter of every book has been at the Dursley house. They could have slipped them in even if it was only for 5 seconds.

    I was going to metion it in this post. That was the Banishing Charm and was with cushions. You were talking about the Levitating Charm in the first book with the feathers.

    Its not the opening chapter (but I'm just being pedantic there!!) and nothing really happens, Harry has some dreams, the Weasleys take him away, personally I'd rather they cut that bit and left something more important in later on in the film

    I'm one of those people that likes the beginings in films though. I like the fact that it starts in a "normal" house in England (Surry to be exact) and then it goes to complete hell in the wizarding world.

    Yea. I wasn't actually talking about the levitating charm in the first book with the feathers though. I knew it involved a cushion! And my point still stands :cool:

    I remember something from an early book about a levitation class, when Harry's cushion/feather/some other levitate-able object "flew up and landed perfectly"
    Point proven.

    It wasn't levitation, it was the banishing charm and had nothing to do with levitation at all. And it was in book four, which wasn't an early book.

    Ha! Just saw the trailer. Some of it looked very dodgy - I was looking over my mums shoulder but were the competitors wearing some sort of lycra suit? Hmmm...I think I'll have to rewatch (and hopefully discover I was horribly mistaken!)
