Why did Colin Crivey disappear after Chamber of Secrets?

Although it remains a major work offantasy, and an icon of pop culture, theHarry Pottercinematographic saga includes numerous defects and inconsistencies, observed during the eight films released between 2001 and 2011. The most famous errors refer to the Marauder's Map, the fact that Harry, as a horcrux, does not die as a result of his bite by the Basilisk, the problems linked to changes in allegiance of the wands, or even the implementation useless guard of Dobby in the second feature film.

Far from this kind of errors, the saga also questions the question of views of certain characters, casting changes or their sudden disappearance from one episode to the next. the other. This is the case of young Colin Crivey, who appeared in the second part.

the reasons for the absence of Colin Crivey in the films

Colin Creevey is a Gryffindor student who joins Hogwarts a year after Harry. Armed of his camera and Big fan of the wizard à wearing glasses, Colin was known for often taking photos of his idol and other students. Muggle-born, he is part of the plot of the second volume by J.K. Rowling and the film by Chris Columbus ,since he is one of the Basilisk's victims. Petrified, he is finally saved. of the death of the giant snake.

Colin then continued his school career at the famous Hogwarts school of magic. During his fourth year (< em>The Order of the Phoenix), he joined Dumbledore's Army with his brother Dennis. Two years later, he cannot return to the school due to his status as a Muggle-born, Voldemort having taken control of Hogwarts. However, he returned in The Deathly Hallows to fight the Dark Lord and his troops. It was during this battle that he lost his life to the Death Eaters. His body was found &àgrave; outside the Great Hall by Neville Longbottom and Olivier Dubois.

However, in the films of the saga, this scene is absent. Worse, the character mysteriously disappears after the events of The Chamber of Secrets. Why? If the answer was never given, made official by Warner Bros. or the director,we know that he was replaced by a character somewhat similar named Nigel Wolpert.Created solely for the purposes of the films, he idolized Harry, and joined Dumbledore's brigade, like Colin.

But according to speculation,this change is due to &àgrave; the sudden growth spurt of actor Hugh Mitchellduring the three years between the second opus of Goblet of Fire, in which he could reappear. This would then have caused a certain inconsistency with respect to vis of his character of Colin, supposed to be To be younger. Warner then preferred to remove the character from his script rather than make a simple casting change.

From 2001 to 2001 2011, the directors who succeeded one another at the helm of the various opuses of the cinematographic license, have also been disappointed. tinkering with the ups and downs of life. We remember the replacement of Richard Harris by Michael Gambon in the role of Dumbledore after the death of the first after The Chamber of Secrets, or the role of Lavender Brown, played by Kathleen Cauley in the second opus, then replaced by by Jennifer Smith in her suite, before being entrusted to &àgrave; Jessie Cave in a more important role from The Half-Blood Prince.

Young Nigel as for he will not experience the same fate as Colin Crivey, since he did not die during the Battle of Hogwarts.
