Harry Potter purists who want to see every single scene they read on the books on the big screen will surely be up in arms upon hearing this bit of news from the Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince set.
Apparently, two pivotal events in the book will not be shown in the movie adaptation. One is the battle that takes place inside Hogwarts, and the other is Dumbledore’s funeral.
According to producer David Heyman, the battle was deliberately left out because they didn’t want a repetition of a key event. In the seventh book, there is also a battle inside the school grounds and they feel that this is the more important event. The funeral scene on the other hand, was left out because the film team felt that the ending they had thought up for the movie is the right one.
What do you guys think? A wise move or a catastrophic omission?
