How They Made Hagrid Look So Big In Harry Potter

Harry Potter's VFX team tried out many exciting techniques to make Hagrid look almost twice as large as a regular-size human, but how did they make Hagrid so big? Rubeus Hagrid is around eight feet tall, considerably smaller than the 12-foot half-giant described in the books, yet the adaptation's VFX crew nailed the task of making him look too big for his surroundings, especially because he is always walking around with much smaller students. The character was the first of many examples that succeeded in bringing Harry Potter's magical world-building to the screen, giving life to the absurdities that make the reality of the wizarding franchise so unique.
