** Dudley, while quite tubby in the first few films (he's actually the largest he ever gets in the third film), seems to be merely stocky by the time the fifth movie rolls around (admittedly this happens in the book as well, as Dudley takes up boxing and becomes more muscular than fat). Harry Melling, the actor who portrays him, actually lost a great deal of weight in between the shooting of the fifth and seventh films (the Dursleys were left out of the sixth film entirely). According to interviews with the actor, the producers nearly died of shock when he showed up for filming a good seventy pounds lighter (likely more than they were envisioning for Dudley). Fortunately for him, instead of recasting, they stuffed him into a fat suit. [[SpecialEffectsFailure Unfortunately, the effect wasn't quite what they wanted,]] and ultimately his scene with Harry at the beginning of ''Deathly Hallows Part 1'' was cut.

* HideYourPregnancy:
** Creator/HelenaBonhamCarter (Bellatrix Lestrange) was pregnant during the filming of ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince'', but it would have thrown a major wrench into the plot for Bellatrix to appear pregnant. So she spends that film wearing a loose costume and hiding behind the furniture, especially in the Unbreakable Vow scene.
** Averted for Creator/KateFleetwood, who played Mary Cattermole. She was pregnant during the filming of ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows'', and the film does show that in a couple of scenes.

** Dolores Umbridge, in the book, is described as being short, squat, and toad-like in features, which gives her an appearance as hideous as her personality. In the movie, she appears as an woman in her fifties with a relatively average (though still somewhat short) build and a faintly out-of-date hairstyle. She almost, but not quite, appears grandmotherly. [[BitchInSheepsClothing This creates a much greater contrast when it becomes apparent to the reader that she is probably more evil than Satan himself]].

** The route of the Hogwarts Express is the West Highland Railway from Craigendoran via Fort William to Mallaig, Scotland, considered one of the most beautiful railway journeys in the world (and you can even ride behind a [[SteamIsEternal steam locomotive]] in the summer), with the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glenfinnan_Viaduct Glenfinnan Viaduct]] a particular favorite of the film directors.
