Harry Potter Theory Says Dumbledore Was NOT Killed By Snape | Movies | Entertainment


WARNING: This article contains complete spoilers for the main Harry Potter film and book series.

Fans of the Wizarding World will never forget the heartbreaking scenes featured in the sixth Harry Potter film and book – The Half-Blood Prince. The pivotal moment came when it was revealed that Draco Malfoy had been chosen by Lord Voldemort to kill Professor Dumbledore. To protect Harry, the Headmaster cast a paralyzing spell on him, leaving him unable to save his mentor. But at the last minute, however, Draco hesitated, prompting Snape to take over and deliver the final blow – but did he?

Superfans on Reddit have noted how the Wizarding World’s Killing Curse – Avada Kedavra – has a specific set of rules behind it. the impostor Alastor Moody. He explained that the Killing Curse requires “deep psychological engagement” and the students couldn’t attempt to kill him even if they tried.

The HP fan went on to explain how the curse Snape cast on Dumbledore wasn’t enough to kill him as he wasn’t fully committed to the act.

The haunting image of Dumbledore falling from the tower of Hogwarts will of course stay with fans forever, but it might have even more meaning.

The Reddit user paraphrased the passage from the book, writing, “Snape blasts Dumbledore with a flash of green light. Harry screams, but the scream is silent. Dumbledore’s latest spell continues to render Harry immobile, unable to move or speak. They added: “Out of sight, Dumbledore hits the ground and dies. Only then is Harry freed. Dumbledore’s restraining spell broke when the Headmaster’s life ended. – at the bottom of the astronomy tower, not at the top.”

The mystical elder wand belongs to whoever claims it in a duel. And shortly before Dumbledore was murdered, Draco was the person who disarmed the wizard of his legendary wand.

Draco was then disarmed by Harry, making him the master of the weapon and the eventual winner of the battle against Voldemort. This meant that no matter what ended up killing Albus, his wand would always have gone to Harry.

The story of the Elder Wand, however, may continue in the near future.

The Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play has long been rumored to be coming to the big screen. And recently, Ron Weasley actor Rupert Grint revealed he would be open to a return.

If he would return, he said: “I can’t really think of a reason not to really, I love this character, I love this world. It’s a big part of my life. I feel that kind of Ron’s property in a weird way.”
