Film School Rejects’ 7 Unexplained Movie Moments That You’ll Only Get If You’ve Read the Book (Or Seen the Original) - 7. In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Snape’s Patronus Means Nothing
“Working on the film adaptation of Harry Potter before the books were finished created the pretty obvious problem of not knowing exactly what to include — a problem exacerbated by the fact that JK Rowling was clearly making it all up as she went along. Nowhere is the issue more apparent than at the climax of The Deathly Hallows Part 2, where everyone in the audience who read the books was crying uncontrollably and everyone who hadn’t was poking them and asking, in a suitably polite movie-theatre whisper, what the hell was going on.
The scene shows Snape revealing, for the first time, his Patronus: a doe. The book had at this point casually explained that love for someone else can alter a person’s patronus — Tonks’ patronus is a wolf, symbolizing her love for Remus Lupin, who is a werewolf. When we see Snape’s Patronus as a doe, we suddenly realize that he was in love with Lily Potter, Harry’s mother — which explains virtually everything he’s done up to this point. Kinda. If you squint.
But in the movie, we never see Tonks’ patronus, or learn in any other way that a Patronus reflects love at all, making this scene entirely incomprehensible unless you knew what it meant anyway.” [x]
“When I entered training school, there was a manager who always looked after me. Before that person quit the place, the last thing that person brought to me was an audition for TeniPuri. I heared the results on a public phone outside of work. When I heard that I passed, I shouted in the lobby, “I really passed the auditions!” because I was super happy… I feel like I was able to return the favor a bit.” — Hosoyan on how he started as a seiyuu (PairPuri Vol. 2)
“Don’t misunderstand; No one loves me because they’re afraid of me… Don’t make me laugh. I’m the one who’s scared! I can’t control this power… and I’m constantly afraid of failing. That’s right, I’m the biggest coward in the world. But so what if I am? The fact that I’m a coward has nothing to do with beating the crap out of you. Besides, I can’t go down… in front of the people who love me!”
