We couldn't tell you how many times we've watched and re-watched the iconic Harry Potter films, but even after countless viewings we always spot something new!
This time, we're picked out a minor - though rather touching - detail involving Harry's scar that can be spotted in the final moments of The Deathly Hallows: Part II.
Flashing forward 19 years after the final battle, we see Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Ginny drop their own children off at Kings Cross Station for their first term at Hogwarts, and Harry looks a little different. Watch the scene here:
With his hair combed off his face, it's easy to see that grown-up Harry's iconic lightning bolt scar is almost completely disappeared.
The once dark, red scar has faded to just about match his own skin tone, and can only be scene by the sharpest eyes.
But what's the reason for this? The scar has been with Harry since he was an infant, after all.
Well, we can turn to the original book for answers on that one.
Describing Harry's appearance in the final moments of the entire book series, author J.K Rowling writes: "The scar had not pained Harry for nineteen years. All was well."
Much like it had been before he ever set foot in Hogwarts, it appears that Harry's scar has gone dormant once again, no longer plaguing him with searing pain or anxiety.
The faded scar also signals an end to the danger and destruction that Harry has gone up against over the years. His worries are finally over.
There are plenty of other easter eggs from the books that make subtle appearances throughout the film franchise.
Recently, we told you about one hidden gem in the first film Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, when Harry first gets invited to Hogwarts.
As he ogles the envelope, his Aunt Petunia can be seen in the background working on a task that's mentioned in the original book.
Never noticed these subtle references before? Sounds like the perfect excuse to rewatch the films!
