    I have a question about the film, In one of the Harry potter films, at the start harry is reading a book under his cover using the spell "Lumos" But in the 5th fim, he uses the expecto patronum spell, but gets a letter saying that he is expelled for using undreage magic?? But how come he didnt get expelled for using lumos?

    That's a very good question :confused:

    It does say in the film that magic is not allowed to be used by underaged witches and wizards outside of hogwards :confused:

    Because the people who write/direct the movies have never actually read the books and only have a vague idea of what is supposed to actually happen and ignore the actual storylines that they do know anyway.

    I know :( and Kreacher was barely in it so far and yet he plays such a huge part in the last one. Plus did they ever explain who the Marauders were?

    He was alone when he used lumos. He was with his adoptive brother when he did the other spell. Your not allowed to use spells infront of non magic folk :) I am sad I know..lol.

    Hagrid did in the first film and he just told harry to not tell anyone but the ministry of magic is supposed to be able to tell when anyone is using a spell?? Ask JKR She might be able to explain it better...LOL :D

    Don't know why she said that about Dumbledore as it wasn't relevant to the story anyway!
    The wand comes equiped with a reading light so it isn't really Harry doing the magic :D:D
