There are plenty of people out there who think they can recite every single world of Harry Potter backwards, forwards, and sideways. Us included. But, when you think about how many pages make up the whole series, it'd be pretty easy to gloss over a few differences.
Still, that hasn't stopped one superfan from noticing a marked difference between a passage in The Prisoner of Azkaban published in 2013 compared to the version published in 1999. It's all a bit intriguing and we could do with a time-turner about now.
Basically, the scene concerns the moment when Hermione Granger refers to Sirius Black as Mr Black, while they're all gathered in the Shrieking Shack trying to decide if Pettigrew is actually innocent and not the filthy turncoat he actually is. Ahem.
Although the original passage contains Sirius being baffled by Hermione because "he'd never seen anything quite like her", the later editions of the book have "staring at Hermione as though being spoken to politely was something he'd long forgotten."
Right. We have absolutely no idea why the publishers decided to change the wording but we kind of like the new phrase if we're totally honest. RIP Snuffles, AKA Mr Black.
