Harry Potter Fans Baffled After Spotting Hermione's Towel 'Moving On Its Own'

Harry Potter Fans Baffled After Spotting Hermione's Towel 'Moving On Its Own'

Anything goes when you're a wizard.

Remember that one Simpsons character who said, "whenever you notice something like that, a wizard did it"?

The filmmakers behind Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire may have taken that a bit too literally, as some eagle-eyed cinema fans pointed out on Reddit.

One massive continuity error has re-surfaced on social media, and viewers are totally baffled. But in the world of wizardry, how can we possibly tell the difference between a mistake and magic?

Straight after the second task, in which each champion must retrieve someone valuable to them under water, Hermione can be seen wrapping a towel round a drenched Harry and kissing him on the forehead. She can be seen wearing a grey dressing gown at this point.

In the very next scene, Harry and Hermione are sharing the towel. Could someone have put a spell on the towel? Or is it just a bit of a blunder?

Either way, the scene - despite being 16 years old - hasn't quite escaped the notice of continuity spotters on Reddit.

"Continuity mistake: Straight after the second task Hermione wraps her own white towel around Harry, but between shots it jumps back to her shoulders, then back to Harry's several times", one user said.

YouTube commenters spotted several other details, which could only have been made possible by the power of movie magic.

"I think it's funny how Harry's glasses don't seem to have any problem staying on his head [while underwater]", a commenter pointed out.

The r/ContinuityErrors thread has highlighted plenty of other hilarious film gaffes from across the decades.

One user spotted a naming mix-up during an episode of Stranger Things, in which Billy introduces his sister as "Max, but she goes by Maxine" - despite the fact that she prefers to go by Max.

Another pointed out that in an episode of The Office, Jim's hair goes from ruffled to slicked back in the space of a micro-second. The wonders of TV, right?
