Hopefully they can
make the Gringotts break-in seem far less ridiculous in the movie thanYes, I can sympathise with that view, but it is a book about magic, and
was in the book...
how can you say "this is realistic" when you're on about magic ?
hahaha! Good point... However, there's a book about magic with some
realisic plots and then there's a book about magic with the breaking into
Exactly. It must be realistic in confines of the book universe, not
ours. Harry can't just bippity boppity boo Hogwarts into a giant
robot. It's no realistic to the Potterverse.

the most secure places in the wizarding world, robbed by 3 teens and
an inside job Goblin. And they steal the Guard Dragon to boot.
Sounds like a comedy sketch send up of Gringotts security.
I suspect one of the basic assumptions in Gringotts' security was that you could never suborn a goblin, they'd just never turn traitor on their bank.
And it was a fairly good assumption - the only problem was the inside-job goblin went a bit further than the remaining security could cope with, dragon included :)
looking forward to the dragon escape scene as long as the CGI's as good as the hippogriff scene in PoA, and that it doesn't go on for *too* long at the expense of the story!
