'Horns' Official Trailer
Good, still hyped for this.
Do I wanna see this for the plot or for Daniel Radcliffe doing an American accent?
this was gonna be cool lion-man stuff, but i didn’t like how it came out so i went with cute instead
Headcanon: Fleur was the only one of Molly’s daughters (because all her daughters-in-law became her daughters) who carried on the tradition of Weasley Jumpers. Hermione liked to use what little free time she had reading or spending time with her family, Ginny absolutely hated knitting and Angelina had never learned to knit.
Fleur’s last Christmas gift to Molly was a beautiful purple jumper with a gold ‘M’ on it and a card that read: "Mum - After all those years of making them for everyone else, I thought it was about time someone made you your very own Weasley Jumper. All my love, Fleur."
To the end of her days, it was Molly’s favourite item of clothing.

did she get a haircut
does it make anyone else uncomfortable that they changed her entire race because she went out with Ron in their sixth year
isn’t that what happened???
they changed a character’s entire race because she as a character became important and relevant for a short amount of time
Umm, no. They did not change her entire race simply because she dated Ron. Actually think about it. Up until the sixth book, she was a background character that was only ever mentioned in passing, so she wasn’t given a physical description. Then in the sixth book, Lavender was finally described, as having ‘pale skin and dirty blonde hair’. Well, the first few Harry Potter movies came out before the Half-Blood Prince book did, so the casting directors did what they wanted with the character.
Another thing, the Lavender Brown from the first few movies only appeared in the first few movies. Lavender didn’t even appear in the 4th and 5th movies, because again, she was a background character, and wasn’t vital to the story. The only reason her race was changed was because a physical description was finally in the books, and it didn’t fit what the directors had, so they had to recast her. It was not because she dated Ron.
Somebody spread this shit because I refuse to have this turn into some social justice bullshit
Excuse me but this is in fact ‘some social justice bullshit’.
Lavender Brown is never described physically in the books. Never. The “pale skin and dirty blonde hair” quote up there? That’s Luna Lovegood. Lavender is completely racially ambiguous. We don’t even know if she’s pretty or not.
HBP was released in 2005, with the film coming out in 2009. That means that when Lavender’s role developed from “background character” to “love interest”, they had just released the “Goblet of Fire” film. So Lavender Brown, as a character, had been cast and filmed already. But all of a sudden, now that she was going to have a bigger role, they re-cast her.
I think it would be naive and insulting to pretend race doesn’t play into this. As the people above said, Lavender’s original role is tiny - in fact, there’s no reason to know that she’s Lavender Brown at all. They ought to have just credited her as “Gryffindor Girl” or something if they didn’t want to cause trouble, but no. She was actually played by two different actresses , Kathleen Cauley and Jennifer Smith. Then she disappears in the fourth film and re-emerges as a totally new person.
It’s also worth noting that even if Lavender HAD been physically described in the books, that argument is still 0/10. Daniel Radcliffe doesn’t have green eyes. Luna Lovegood’s “dirty blonde” hair became platinum blonde. Hermione didn’t have buck teeth or frizz. Voldemort didn’t have red eyes. The films do NOT offer 100% fidelity to the “looks” of the characters in the books, so by implying that THIS ONE RE-CAST IN PARTICULAR was above that, you are actually saying “race is so important because it is unimaginable Ron would date a black girl.”
"But maybe the white girl was just a better actress!"
Yeah, maybe. Maybe the film industry as whole, generally speaking, continues to refuse to represent POC - particularly WOC - in roles other than “background”.
How I imagine the next generation of Weasley girls to look like when they first become Hogwarts students. All have ginger hair except Victoire and Roxanne
Things Dumbledore Did That’d Be Creepy If You Did them
you know how in some movies the bride/groom calls off the wedding to be with the person they truly love and then they live happily ever after well it’s pretty shitty that the person they were getting married to doesn’t actually get a happy ending but no one seems to care about it to the point that he/she is not even mentioned afterwards as if that person didn’t exist or had feelings at all yeah just a thought
