Hermione was supposed to have buck teeth but Emma Watson thought it looked weird and found it hard to talk. The only part in the Harry Potter movies where she is wearing false teeth is in the last scene in this movie. In the original draft, Drew Barrymore , a self-proclaimed Harry Potter fan, had a cameo.

Harry attributed the pain to Snape's presence, when Voldemort was staring at him all along. Also, watch Snape's reaction when he sees that Harry's scar is hurting. He looks over at Quirrell, obviously suspicious of him. When Harry first meets Professor Quirrell in the bar with Hagrid, Harry extends his hand to him to shake it. Quirrell makes it a point not to shake it. It is shown at the end of the movie that when Harry does touch Quirrell, it causes him to physically break down due to his dark magic and association with Voldermort.
On Christmas Day, when you see the sweater Ron's Rupert Grint's mother made him, there is a yellow "R", but in the book, his sweater didn't have a letter. In the book, George and Fred come into the room and complain Ron doesn't have a letter.
They said "I suppose she thinks you don't forget your name. But we're not stupid. We know we're called Gred and Forge. After Harry picks up the stone, Voldermort's soul attacks him. The reason Voldermort did not die was because of his Horcruxes, but J.
Rupert Grint was actually injured after he was attacked by the queen during the chess game. After he falls a rock can be seen striking him on the cheek after he hits the ground. The fire trapping Harry in the dungeon with Quirrell and Voldemort was not in the book, but it was based on the colored fire Harry and Hermione face with the seven potion bottles in the novel but not in the movie after winning the chess game.

Behind-the-scenes pictures show a different design for the incarnation of Voldemort that is stuck on the back of the head of Professor Quirrell.

Richard Bremmer portrayed Voldemort in the flashback to the death of Harry's parents. The movie omits a subplot from the book where Harry, Ron and Hermione plan to smuggle Hagrid's dragon Norbert out of the castle after curfew since keeping dragons as pets is illegal.

However, Draco also learned about the dragon, and tries to expose them, while Neville tries to warn Harry and Hermione about Draco.
