Voldy's Eyes

Anybody besides me have any opinion/comment about WB giving Voldy GREEN eyes?

 

They are that way in the last trailer posted here.

 

I think it's a statement of just how incredibly little WB staff understands/pays attention to the subtleties of HP. 

 

I'll bet JKR is having a hisssy-fit.

I don't know. She's probably to busy with Pottermore to notice. Besides, Daniel Radcliffe doesn't have green eyes, does he? I thought he had blue eyes. Maybe their trying to make it into a he-transferred-his-eye-color-in-GoF-when-he-took-Harry's-blood-to-be-reborn thing (Shrug). I have no idea.

 

Also, I think movies 3-6 are a testament as to how little the WB staff understands/pays attention to the subleties of HP :smileyvery-happy: (Just my opinion).

Re: Voldy's Eyes

Yes, Dan Radcliffe's eyes are blue; he tried wearing green contacts at first, but fount out he was alergic to them or something.  That's why they dropped the "green eyes" issue from the films.

 

But voldy catching "green eyes" from Harry's blood -- that's workable.....

Ugh, the eyes issue has always been one of the many things that bothered me about the movies. I always wondered why they couldn't put green contacts on Daniel Radcliffe. You'd think even if they were bothering his eyes, they could have at least digitally changed them?

Re: Voldy's Eyes
