6. Draco's Detour

  • Information about these scenes came from a . Firstly, Diagon Alley will be seen again and Ollivander's has been destroyed
  • We walked around Diagon Alley. Ollivander's had been destroyed, all the windows were smashed and it was trashed. The shops had complete interiors in case the camera caught a glimpse inside by accident. Quality Quidditch supplies had a Quidditch equipment display, uniforms on dummies and drawers full of clothing. Florean Fortescue's had fake ice cream sundaes lining the walls on shelves. Flourish and Blotts had hundreds of books inside the doorway piled up and on shelves. The large books in the windows are actually Watford phone directories covered!
  • The empty Ollivanders shop will be visited, according to Mugglenet’s test screening review.
  • Ollivander’s shop is empty. Can you believe they mention it? They do. They even have time to walk inside and feel sad.
  • More info from the tells us that WWW Joke Shop is in the movie.
  • But WWW stood out in bright orange with a curved front door. It was the most wonderful place. It was like every dream you had as a kid. There were skiving snack boxes, puking pastels, U-No-Poo, sweets from floor to ceiling. It had a set of stairs winding up the middle and was three floors high. The detail was amazing; the shelves were crooked with brightly coloured goods on every surface. It was truly breath taking. At the end of our tour we watched them filming a scene there. When you see the scene where Fred and George are talking to Ron on the stairs, he asks how much for an item, they say '5 galleons', Ron says 'but I'm your brother' and they say '10 galleons'. Well I am standing behind the stairs (out of sight) by the door! It took eight takes just for that few seconds and I was told they only complete 2 minutes of film a day
  • A reliable source gave us the script for the WWW scene; shots of the shop were seen in the ABC sneak peeks and from a magazine picture.
  • HBP script


    CLOSE ON a SHOPPING BAG, bearing Weasley's Wizard Wheezes, clutched in the hand of a boy being pulled by his mother through the throng packed sardine-tight in the store. It's utter madness: Ever-Bashing Boomerangs whip through the air, Dr. Filibuster's Fabulous Wet-Start No-Heat fireworks spit sparks, and Nose-Biting Teacups bare tiny porcelain teeth.


    FRED & GEORGE WEASLEY, in SCREAMING MAGENTA, stand upon a counter, selling to the masses.

    Weasleys Wizard Wheezes 

    Step up! Step up!

    We've got Fainting Fancy...

    Nosebleed Nougats...

    And just in time for school...

    Puking Pastilles!

    A BOY stops chewing, turns PALE GREEN--literally.

    Into the cauldron, handsome

    Together, with the tips of their toes, Fred and George launch a SLOSHING CAULDRON down the counter, drop down on either side of Harry, begin to steer him through the store.

    What'd you think, Harry?


    GEORGE (to a browsing boy)
    Pocket that and you'll pay in more than Galleons, my friend.

    We've got eyes in the back of our heads.

     Weasley Wizard Wheezes

    The boy, working a SCREAMING YO YO, blanches as Fred and George turn, reveal they do in fact have EYES IN THE BACK OF THEIR HEADS--phony, but unnerving. As the EYES WINK, the tiny boy bolts.

    Bloody urchins.

    Harry eyes a display of ORANGE AND BLACK LUMPS.

    Peruvian Instant Darkness Powder?

    A real money spinner that.

    Handy if you need to make a quick escape. Hello ladies!

    George drops one of the lumps in Harry's hand, turns to Ginny and Hermione, who peruse a display of "Wonder Witch Love Potions."

    Weasley Wizard Wheezes 

    GEORGE (cont'd)
    Yes, they really work.

    Then again, the way we hear it, sis, you're doing just fine on your own.

    Weasley Wizard Wheezes 


    Are you not currently dating Dean Thomas?

    Harry pretends to consider a rack of "Ten-Second Pimple Vanisher," but secretly eavesdrops.

    None of your business.

    These are adorable.

    Inside a cage, small round BALLS of FLUFF roll about, SQUEAK.

    Aren't they? Pygmy Puffs. Can't breed them fast enough.

    Just then, a HUGE BOY (CORMAC MCLAGGEN) passes behind Hermione and, with his eyes, takes the full measure of her. Noticing, she turns, receives a faint smile as he moves on.

    How much for this?

    A TINY WOODEN MAN ascends a TINY GALLOWS and...DROPS. George rides a rolling ladder into FRAME, drops next to Fred.

    Five Galleons.

    RON How much for me?

    Five Galleons.

    But I'm your brother!

    Ten Galleons.

    C'mon. Let's go.

    The trio head for the door, passing LAVENDER BROWN, who smiles flirtatiously at an oblivious Ron.

    Hi, Ron.

  • Even more info from the confirmed that Borgin & Burke's is in the film and there will be wanted posters of Bellatrix Lestrange and the Carrows in Knockturn Alley.
  • We saw Knockturn Alley but the lights weren't on so it was by torch light! Saw Borgin and Burkes that way. The vanishing cabinet was in the centre, it was dark wood with a slanted roof. There were lots of skulls and creepy looking objects – even creepier due to the lack of lighting. There were wanted posters on the alley walls for Bellatrix and the Carrows.
  • A test screening viewer describes the Borgin and Burkes scene.
  • Yes we see draco in Borgin and Burkes, greyback is there too. The trio actually follow Draco and Narcissa to the shop (did I mention, there is no scene at Madame Malkins, some of you have asked). So Narcissa actually accompanies Draco. There are very unique camera angles over Knockturn Alley and Borgin and Burkes for this scene. It is fairly well done. Though Hermione does not go in. We didn't actually see the inside of Borgin and Burke's except through a dirty window, and it's Fenrir Greyback that pulls down the shade.
