What if Christopher Nolan would have directed Harry Potter
1. The Arrival of Rubeus Hagrid
In "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," Hagrid's appearance on the tiny, flying motorbike would be much more intense and dramatic, akin to an action-packed rescue mission. The scene would be shot with high-octane energy, showcasing Hagrid's strength and determination.
2. The Triwizard Tournament - The Second Task
During the Triwizard Tournament's underwater challenge in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," Nolan might add a psychological element, exploring the fears and doubts of the champions as they dive into the dark and treacherous waters.
3. The Battle of the Department of Mysteries
The climactic battle in "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" would be a visually stunning and chaotic sequence, featuring Nolan's signature 360-degree rotating shots and intricate choreography, giving each character a moment to shine.
4. Dumbledore's Memories in "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince"
The scene where Dumbledore shows Harry his memories would be presented in a complex, non-linear narrative, with each memory interconnected to unravel the mystery of Voldemort's past.
5. The Tale of the Three Brothers
In "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," the animated sequence of "The Tale of the Three Brothers" might be reimagined as a haunting and eerie live-action sequence with a blend of practical effects and CGI.
6. The Gringotts Bank Heist
The break-in at Gringotts in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" would be a tense and suspenseful action sequence, with Nolan's emphasis on practical effects and practical stunts, making it feel more realistic and dangerous.
7. The Prince's Tale
Snape's memories in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" would be presented with Nolan's trademark non-linear storytelling, jumping back and forth between different pivotal moments in Snape's life, adding emotional depth and complexity to the character.
8. The Battle of Hogwarts
The final battle in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" would be an epic and visceral spectacle, with Nolan's characteristic attention to detail, practical effects, and immersive cinematography, capturing the scale of the conflict.
9. The King's Cross Scene
In the limbo-like King's Cross scene in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," Nolan might explore a mind-bending dreamscape with surreal visuals and a philosophical dialogue between Harry and Dumbledore.
10. The Epilogue
The epilogue, set nineteen years later, would be shot in a more contemplative and nostalgic manner, with a focus on character emotions and the passage of time, highlighting the bittersweet conclusion of the series.
