TPT Book vs Movie by julvett TPT Book vs Movie by julvett
Quick lil comparison I did between kid Snape in the books and in the movies. Obviously I didn't expect the movies to quite capture the full depth of Snape's character... but they portrayed him as a total angel, not the kid who made Lily cry like 6 times, haha. Honestly, if I hadn't read the books, I'd be wondering how Lily ended up with James. That kid Snape was totally adorable :aww:

I prefer him from the books. Once I read them, the movies made SO much more sense.

I know, they made him appear all saintly. They didn't add half of his snarky comments to the trio, him almost slicing James's face open, his major angst in the Shack, and now this!

James was still bad in the books, Its just that severus was a dick too so he kind of deserved it.

I always thought the branch incident was one of those instances of accidental magic, since there wasn't really any indication that Severus had done it on purpose other than Lily's accusation. But then young Lily really loved and admired her sister, it would make sense for her character to take Petunia's side or act protective of her no matter what. Harry was known to do magic accidentally, too after all, whenever he got riled up enough, even when he was supposedly old enough to know better (blowing up Aunt Marge for one). I'm sure Harry had been imagining all sorts of horrible things to happen to his aunt at the time, but didn't expect anything to actually happen.

As for the movie, well, unfortunately, I think Rowling kind of screwed herself on that by not revealing more info to the directors from the start. So they were basically as clueless as the readers were about Snape. He was portrayed very one-dimensional in the first three books, so no one thought much about cutting out or shortening Snape's scenes in favor of the main story. Once that ball started rolling, it just continued into the more important books. ("Snape's Worse Memory" being a glaring example; that scene was horribly butchered and far too short; then two books later we later find out it is a crucial scene). By the time Deathly Hallows came out there wasn't much material left to work with for the big reveal. It would have been an extreme mood whiplash to compare an angry somewhat sadistic kid with the much calmer adult Snape that Rickman portrayed in the last couple of movies. For a more book faithful scene to have worked, the previous movies would have needed to show just how cruel and unfair adult Snape could be from the very beginning. They never did that, and just made him a snarky and somewhat short-tempered disciplinarian.
