Scene 8

Scene 8

  • Hagrid's going to teach us a lesson.
  • Of course, Draco Malfoy thinks it's an insult to his education that Hagrid is a teacher now.
  • Harry stands up for his friend Hagrid, but Draco taunts him by saying there's a Dementor behind him.
  • At least Dementors have better breath than Malfoy. Ooh, burn.
  • Hagrid introduces the students to Buckbeak, a hippogriff.
  • It doesn't look like we'd pictured it from the book: a mixture of hippopotamus and Merv Griffin.
  • Hagrid puts Harry on its back, and off it goes, soaring into the sky.
  • In fear, Hermione grabs Ron's hand. Awwwwwkwaaaard. Or as the hippogriff might say, squawkward.
  • Aboard Buckbeak's back, Harry does his best Kate Winslet impression.
  • And he returns to Hagrid safely.
  • Malfoy, trying to show off, approaches Buckbeak and is promptly knocked to the ground.
  • Like he's milking a World Cup foul, Malfoy acts like he's mortally wounded, and needs to be carried to the hospital.
