Reddit user urruiskidad commented that their relationship "was executed reasonably well & realistic."

Several fans disagree with this view of the couple"s relationship as many believe it to lớn have been severely underdeveloped in the movies. Ginny, herself, was hardly in the movies or around Harry enough lớn build up their relationship before they were suddenly together. Of course, with so many other characters in the show & so many plot lines to execute, it"s understandable why there wasn"t time to focus on the love story and the bare minimum was the best they could do.



Some fans preferred Ginny from the books because she was more fleshed-out than her movie counterpart. However, the Redditor No_Risk_8848 commented that "she was an underdeveloped, poorly written character," even after reading the books.

Granted, there wasn"t much room lớn develop her, especially in the movies with so many other characters và storylines lớn focus on, but their relationship could have used a couple more moments together to lớn establish their connection & build up their relationship.

Once they connected through that common loss, Harry was nice and civil to Luna when most people called her weird and she didn"t treat him differently because of his celebrity status.

Before Harry and Ginny became a couple, he had a crush on cho Chang and for a little while, it seemed lượt thích they would be together after Cedric"s death.

5 Ginny Has A Better Relationship With Neville


While the major focus of the story was on the Golden Trio, the story occasionally cut khổng lồ other characters like Ginny and Neville. The two of them actually had a good friendship and the Redditor SherdyRavers said, "they deserved to be a couple more than Harry & Ginny" and explained their controversial opinion on the friendship between the two from the books và how they led Dumbledore"s Army together while the trio was absent.

However, most fans on Reddit usually rank it lower than the other books & movies in the series. In a post about unpopular opinions, the Reddit user thefideliuscharm commented that they liked Chamber of Secrets "because it features Ginny and she was my favorite character."

In the second book & movie, Ginny was the key antagonist due lớn being possessed by Tom Riddle through the journal.

As it is, a lot of fans feel lượt thích the relationship didn"t get the time it deserved for such a major development và most don"t see the couple as a good match. However, Ginny didn"t play much of a role in the major storylines, so bringing her khổng lồ the forefront might have made her stick out awkwardly instead.

Most notably was Ginny calling Fleur "Phlegm." The Reddit user lemon-oreo posted an unpopular opinion that their feud was hilarious và said, "Ginny can be meanspirited, but she is insanely funny & one of my favorite characters."

1 Bonnie Wright Could Have Made Movie Ginny Better


Bonnie Wright played the part of Ginny since she was 9 years old and by the time the final movie was complete, she was 19. Most fans dislike Ginny"s character because of how she doesn"t get much development, but a few feel Wright was partly khổng lồ blame for how she turned out. The Reddit user xthecollectorx said, "Bonnie could have put a bit more emotion, some feeling, something into the lines she did have."

This view is understandable because while the script plays a big part in the making of a character, the actor"s execution of the role determines how they"re perceived.
