    Yeah, so I’ve also heard that they completely cut out S.P.E.W. which, although not a major plot point, is still mentioned fairly frequently in the next two books.

    But, S.P.E.W. isn’t integral to the story, it merely develops Hermione’s character. The fact of Voldemort’s parentage is highly important, especially in Half Blood Prince.

    I don’t know. Once we’ve seen the actual scene in the movie, I may change my mind, but right now, that seems way off base.

    So does this mean Voldemort doesn’t have a half brother? Interesting.

    But I agree this is a huge issue (if it is as it appears to be). How can Voldemort have died then. Who killed him? Did he kill himself? If so what was he doing with his father and father’s wife?

    My guess is that someone, probably someone who didn’t read the books, got Tom Riddle (aka once and future Voldemort) and Tom Riddle (aka Voldemort’s father’s other son with his non-witch wife) mixed up. They didn’t realize that Tom Marvolo Riddle is actually Voldemort’s real name and that the Marvolo part of the name comes from Voldemort’s mother side of the family. There is NO REASON that Tom Riddle the muggle would have Marvolo as a middle name.
