Default Which do you prefer, the films or books? And why?


Which do you prefer, the films or the books?
And why?


Both hold special places in every Potterhead's heart, but which do you prefer? Do you enjoy revisiting Hogwarts on paper in the original 7 novels written by J.K Rowling or as a feast for the eyes in the 8 screen adaptions? Let us know and why!

I would say that with my hand on heart I am going to say I did enjoy watching the films and the video of Chamber of secrets but I really enjoyed reading the books ��

I thoroughly enjoyed the movies, but the books take it for me. Yes, I loved seeing the Wizarding World with my own two eyes, but nothing is better than what you can see in your imagination. I also felt as if they left some thing out of the movies that really should've been there.

I love the books more than the movies.
I can get lost in the pages and imagine myself in that world.
Also I connect more with a book than the movie Version Of it.

I like both, but if I had to choose, I would choose books, cuz films couldn't manage to cover all the content from the books, that's a disappointing fact, but anyway, movies are fine to watch with friends.

Personally, I think the movies are fun, but the books are magic. I remember talking to adult friends who hadn't read the books and had trouble following things in the movies because they weren't properly explained (though kids just go with it, I haven't met a kid who only watched the films and had any issue).
But I'm a book person. I'll watch the films if they're on the tv or if I'm doing something else and want something fun in the background, but I love reading and rereading the books. It's a different experience.

I love both, and they offer very different experiences. The movies are great because they bring the magic from the pages to life, but nothing beats the detail and style of the books. The books were what I first was exposed to, and they still remain my favorite. Although the movies are wonderful, too - especially when you want to experience Harry Potter with your family and friends.
