Series Harry Potter introduced the audience to the wizarding world, its society, its rules and more, but some of the details that followed in the books and movies raised many questions about how things work in this magical world, including how Sirius Black managed to buy Firebolt for Harry.
The success and popularity of the Harry Potter novels led to their transition to the big screen even before all seven books were released. The Harry Potter saga allowed viewers to fully immerse themselves in the magical world and see the most important places, as well as meet the most important characters. Among them is Sirius Black (Gary Oldman), the false antagonist Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban and Godfather Harry.
Sirius Black was Harry’s closest caring family member, but since Sirius had escaped from prison in Azkabanthey couldn’t spend much time together. However, Sirius made sure that Harry was safe and had everything he needed, even if he couldn’t visit him because he was forced into hiding, and at the end of Prisoner of Azkaban, he sent his godson a very special gift: Fire arrow, world class broom. This raised many questions as to how he acquired it without being noticed by the magical authorities.
Why didn’t Sirius Black get caught after buying Lightning?
Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) got his first broom in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. It was a gift from Professor McGonagall (Maggie Smith) after Harry joined the team Quidditch belonging Gryffindor like a new Seeker. The new broom became one of his most prized possessions. Unfortunately, in Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry fell off Nimbus 2000 when I dementors who is usually guarded by Azkaban, appeared during a Quidditch match.
While Harry survived the fall, the broom fell to the ground. loud sycamorewhich completely destroyed it. At the end of Prisoner of Azkaban, after Sirius left. Hogwarts on Buckbill, sent Harry’s Fire Arrow as a gift; Although it was a touching moment between Sirius and Harry, it was flagged as a potential plot hole given the circumstances surrounding Sirius’ fugitive status.
Sirius’ purchase of Lightning is explained in the book.
It was never explained in the Harry Potter films how Sirius, who had magical powers on his tail after escaping from Azkaban, managed to buy Lightning and not get caught. Books give a good answer to the question of how this became possible. Sirius bought Harry the Lightning through the magical equivalent of a mail order system.
Sirius himself in a letter explains to Harry that Hermione’s cat (Emma Watson), Crookshanks, brought an order for him to the Sov-office. Although he used Harry’s name in the order, he also advised them to take the gold from his vault at Gringotts. Since the Owl Office, and not Sirius himself, was in charge of the purchase, it is understandable that they only cared about getting him paid, not so much about who paid for it; moreover, since Sirius gave the number of the vault and not his real name, he could easily get away with it without drawing the attention of the Ministry.
Readers have also pointed out that goblins don’t exactly follow the laws of wizards and act according to their laws, so even if they were ordered to take money from the fugitive’s safe, and even then, since Sirius never mentioned his name, he would do it. he had no problem getting money to pay for something to be sent to Harry Potter. How Sirius Black bought Lightning isn’t really a plot hole in the Harry Potter saga, but it does raise a couple of questions about magical law and Gringotts gnomes.
Sirius Black’s purchase of an escaped Firebolt without any explanation is not the only small hole in the Harry Potter plot shown in the films due to gaps in the novels. A lot of things are left out in the movies just to simplify the story and shorten the length of the movie. Some plot points that receive lengthy explanations in the books don’t get the same explanations in the Harry Potter films.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban started the Harry Potter franchise trend. In all subsequent films, the explanations from the books were more readily omitted, hoping that the audience would not have any questions. Given the popularity of the Harry Potter novels, it’s likely that some of the plot holes in Harry Potter may have gone unnoticed in the films, as audiences who have read the books would have been able to fill in the gaps themselves. There are several unexplained holes in the Harry Potter plot all around. Triwizard Tournament V Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
Some plot points in the book that were not in the Harry Potter films were, for example, Harry giving Fred and George Weasley (James and Oliver Phelps) money to open their own joke shop. In the novel, he gives them the winnings from the Triwizard Tournament. Fred and George, members of an extremely poor wizarding family, would not have had the money to rent or buy a place in Diagon Alleyno matter how many pranks and treats are sold at Hogwarts, but in the films this aspect is missed.
However, one of the biggest plot holes in Harry Potter also happened in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Although the film is holding Barty Crouch Jr. (David Tennant) as a villain doesn’t fully explain his past. The novel goes into detail to give the reader an idea of his devotion. Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) and the desperation of his dying mother trying to save his life. Not in the film. It is his mother, father and family elf who break him out of prison, while his mother remains in place. This is never explained in the film.
While some of these Harry Potter plot holes are more like plot points that don’t have full explanations in the movies, they do have full explanations in the novels instead. As a result, novels create a more complete picture of the world in which the story takes place.
