There's one weird thing about the Harry Potter movies that many fans can never forgive or forget. It's time to discuss it... calmly. Take a look at this fairly innocuous passage from the fourth book, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire:
Now check out that same section in the Goblet of Fire movie...
Clearly, movie Dumbledore has a different definition of 'calmly.' Firstly, the noble headmaster charges across the hall as if on a turbo-charged skateboard, grabs Harry and shouts something like HARRY DIDYA PUTYA NAME INDA GOBBLEDAFIYAH?!
Suffice to say, there are legions of Harry Potter fans seriously irked by this random difference betwixt book and film.
Perhaps GobbledahFiyahGate was influenced by Michael Gambon's maverick attitude towards playing Dumbledore? His comments on bringing Professor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore, Order of Merlin First Class and Supreme Mugwump to life are charmingly cavalier:
"Well, I don’t have to play anyone really. I just stick on a beard and play me, so it’s no great feat. I never ease into a role – every part I play is just a variant of my own personality. I’m not really a character actor at all."
"I just say what the script tells me to say. I learn the lines and say them – I don’t have much sub-text. There’s no sub-text in Harry Potter really, it’s all magic. Anything can happen."
