** Rowling [[WordOfGod has stated]] that she based Gilderoy Lockhart on an unnamed acquaintance who was [[MilesGloriosus an enormous blowhard]] just like him, and that she barely exaggerated his real personality. As a matter of fact, she claims she ''toned it down!'' [[FridgeBrilliance Would the real person admit to being a fraud?]]

** An especially {{egregious}} example is the casting of Creator/ShirleyHenderson, well into her thirties at the time, as Moaning Myrtle, the ghost of a Hogwarts student. (Of course, it's hard to tell with all that ghost make-up.) Also, this may have been a conscious decision. If they had cast a teenager in the part of Myrtle, she would have looked noticeably older by ''Goblet of Fire''. By casting a young-looking adult in the part, this becomes much less of an issue.

*** The film franchise may not have happened as planned at all: {{Nintendo}} was campaigning to [[http://www.unseen64.net/2015/02/09/nintendo-harry-potter-games-pitch/ acquire exclusive media rights to Harry Potter and turn it into a video game franchise]] for N64, GBA, Gamecube and onward. For all we know, Harry could have been a ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' fighter.

** The initial concept for Lucius Malfoy was of a man with short blond hair and a pinstriped suit. JasonIsaacs argued that Malfoy, being a [[FantasticRacism wizard supremacist]], would want to look as different from a Muggle as possible. He put on a blond wig and velvet cloak and suggested a cane for grand gestures, leading to the now-iconic Lucius Malfoy look.

Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader: ''Deathly Hallows'' is largely responsible for the MovieMultipack trend in Hollywood during TheNewTens. Due to the fact that, even after cutting out all the unnecessary subplots from the book, the shooting script was five hours long, it was split into two parts. After the two films brought in a combined $2.2 billion box office haul, studios began to split the final films of their based-on-a-book franchises so they could milk more profits. The trend would later die out due to the fact these films were frequently criticized for {{padding}} the stories in order to justify the two installments and suffered at the box office as a result.
