This thesis attempts to analyze three characters from Harry Potter as they were adapted from novel to film. After the novels success they were subsequently adapted into films. There are noticeable differences both in the narrative as well as in the characters themselves as the medium of the story was changed. The story became more visual in the films and there was a time limit which means some elements in the story have to be cut or changed to fit this new format. That changes the way some characters were portrayed and their core elements were altered due to the story now becoming more visual. Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger and Ginny Weasley are all notable characters that were altered for the adaptation. There are a multitude of reasons as to why they were changed and how they were portrayed. There was favoritism involved and other people were now involved with the story, it was not just one author anymore. This all combined with the fact that the films were a Hollywood production means that the characters change to confirm to that format. From the distant love interest, the perfect know-it-all and the goofy, stupid best friend, these characters were not as they read in the novels.
