Re: Questions about the Harry Potter Movies

In regards to the wand, Ollivander---maker of fine wands---would not have made a wand with that specific appearance. He normally sells wands to children, not adults, though I imagine some adults would want a new wand were theirs to be old, ineffective, lost, broken...etc. Since I believe Voldemort's wand is the same one he's had since age 11, I have a hard time accepting the movie wands appearance.

Lucius Malfoy, in the movies, also has an altered wand, with a metal snake's head---his wand conceals within the cane he carries, much like an epée can be concealed within a hollow cane. Lucius's wand modification I had no problem with, it's something that the oh-so superior Malfoy would do, but Voldemort's was totally unnecessary.
