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!

Like the books but really love the movies more. Just loved to see it all brought to life.

What they said. Seeing all the work that went into the Wizard world is still one of the best cinematic experience I can recall.

My ultimate favorite HP book is Order of the Phoenix. Sirius Black is my favorite character of all times and I am awaiting JK Rowling to create a new book on James Potter and Sirius Black from when they were at Hogwarts. It would be a dream come true.

Overall I prefer books, but this is one of the only fantasy series that I haven't read the books yet.

Post Books or Movies

I prefer the books. JKR does such a brilliant job of worldbuilding. The Potterworld is so detailed that there is no way of showing every aspect on film. Also, movies based on books are rarely better than the source material.

I definitely prefer books. So many details have been missed in the movies, but I guess it would take much more time to record and direct. Also they obviously separated Deathly Hallows for financial reasons, but oh well

Books. Because Harry's not as annoying in them. And there's just more in them.
