James, Sirius and Peter were not initially impel to explore school grounds at night out of devilment alone, but by their desire to help their dear friend Remus Lupin to bear his lycanthropy. Prior to the invention of Wolfsbane Potion, Lupin was compelled to undergo excruciating transformation every full moon. Once his condition was discovered by his three best friends, they sought way to render his transformations less solitary and painful, which led to them learning to become animagi, so that they could keep him company without harm to themselves. The ability of Sirius Black, Peter Pettigrew and James Potter to become, respectively, dog, rat and stag, enables them to explore Castle grounds by night undetected. The interior of the Castle, meanwhile, was Map over time with the help of James Potters ' Invisibility Cloak. Marauders Map is lasting testimony to the advanced magical ability of four friends who include the Harry Potters father, godfather and favourite teacher. The map they created during their time at Hogwarts appears to be a blank piece of parchment unless activated by the phrase: I solemnly swear that I am up to no good, phrase that, in the case of three of four makers, should be understood as a joke. No good of which they write never denotes Dark Magic, but school rule-breaking; similar bravado is evinced by their use of their own nicknames on Map. Although precise circumstances surrounding the makers ' loss of their Map are not given in Harry Potter novels, it is easy to conclude that they eventually over-reach themselves and were cornered by Argus Filch, probably on tip-off from Snape, whose obsession it had become to expose his arch-rival, James Potter, for wrongdoing. Masterpiece of Map was confiscated by Sirius, James, Remus and Peters final year and none of them were able to steal it back from well-prepared and suspicious French In any case, their priorities change in their final months at school, becoming far more serious and focus on the world beyond Hogwarts, where Lord Voldemort successfully rose to power. All four of map creators would shortly be inducted into renegade organisation headed by Albus Dumbledore, Order of Phoenix, and Map of their old school-no matter how ingenious-would no longer be of use to them except as piece of nostalgia. Marauders Map was, however, of immense use to young Weasley twins. The story of Fred and Georges ' acquisition of the Map is told in Harry Potter and Prisoner of Azkaban. It was a mark of their high esteem for Harry Potter, and their belief that he stand in need of assistance with destiny none of them yet fully understood, that they later gifted Map to him, unwittingly passing it on to the child of one of the creators.

History

Marauder's Map was created by Remus Lupin, Peter Pettigrew, Sirius Black, and James Potter while they were attending Hogwarts. Creation of the Map started in 1974 and was finished between 1975 and 1978, because titles on the Map refer to nicknames of these men in their Animagus forms, and, in Lupin's case, werewolf form. Four create Map via usage of Homonculous Charm, powerful and advanced Charm that enchants Map to track movements of everyone in the castle, as well as Charm to insult Severus Snape. The ability of Sirius, Peter, and James to become Animagi enables them to explore castle grounds by night undetected. The interior of the castle, meanwhile, was Map over time with the help of James's Invisibility cloak. This artefact proved quite useful to foursome through the years, until it was confiscated by Argus Filch. Although precise circumstances surrounding the makers' loss of their Map are mostly unknown, it is easy to conclude that they eventually over-reach themselves and were cornered by Filch, probably on tip-off from Snape, whose obsession it had become to expose his arch-rival, James Potter, for wrongdoing.

Marauder's Map was created by Remus Lupin, Peter Pettigrew, Sirius Black, and James Potter while they were attending Hogwarts. The Map was created between 1975 and 1978, because titles on the Map refer to nicknames of these four men in their Animagus forms, and Lupin in werewolf form, respectively. Four create Map via usage of Homonculous Charm, powerful and advanced Charm that enchants Map to track movements of everyone in the Castle, as well as Charm to insult Severus Snape. This artefact proved quite useful to foursome through the years, until it was confiscated by Argus Filch in their final year at Hogwarts. Fred and George Weasley nick Map from Filch's Office in their first year at Hogwarts. They had been taken to his office to letting off Dungbomb and saw drawer mark confiscated and Highly Dangerous. George dropped another Dungbomb, while Fred stole a map from a drawer. They had to experiment with it in order to learn how to get it to work, but it gives them clues, flickering into life here and there when they come close to activating phrase, until finally they get it exactly. Because of this map, twins memorize secret passageways of Hogwarts which they use for quite a few of their many pranks. In Harry Potter's third year at Hogwarts, Fred and George gave a Map to Harry, so that he could go to Hogsmeade on weekends, although he had not obtained permission to do so from his guardians, Vernon and Petunia Dursley. Harry uses Map throughout his time as a student at Hogwarts, especially during his third year, when he was trying to find his way into Hogsmeade. Then, he used One-Eye Witch Passage which led into Honeydukes cellar. The Map, however, will insult anyone who doesn't know how to activate it. Professor Remus Lupin caught Harry with a Map, and subsequently confiscates it, surprising the younger wizard with his knowledge of how to activate it. It was through Map that the Professor discovered Peter Pettigrew was still alive, leading him to conclude it was indeed the latter that had betrayed Harry's parents, in the process framing their old friend Sirius Black for crime. This would go a long way towards repairing the rift between two co-creators of Map. He would return the Map to Harry before leaving Hogwarts, at the end of the year. During his fourth year, Harry uses map to help him as he snuck into the prefects' bathroom to work on his clue for the Second Task of the Triwizard Tournament. On his way back, he dropped Map, and it was almost taken by Severus Snape. Harry was saved by Barty Crouch Jr., Disguise as Professor Alastor mad-Eye Moody, who pretended it was his. Crouch later asked to borrow a map from Harry, but after Crouch was unmasked, he reclaimed it.

Behind the scenes

Harry Potter and Prisoner of Azkaban is the third book and film in epic seven-part story of a boy who lives and his journey growing up. It is also a story where they start to feel a bit more grown-up. Actors: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint, were beginning to get older, and hormones were flowing, which led us to something Twitter user posted that was found during the scene that showed Marauder's Map on screen. Harry Potter uses maps to track where characters are at in Hogwarts, represented by little footprints on the map. As you can see from the screencap below, it looks like two people in Castle May have been getting a littleclose. Look in the lower corner.

Appearances

Marauder's Map, along with his wand and Cloak of Invisibility, is Harry's only remaining treasure from his time at Hogwarts. According to J. K. Rowling, Harry never gave the Map to Teddy Lupin or any of his children, but his son Jam probably stole it from Harry's desk. Magical defences on Hogwarts have been mentioned several times, including Hogwarts being unplottable. That implies that mapping Hogwarts is impossible, which is exactly what Marauder's Map does There are some possible loop holes for this: for example, making a place unplottable might simply make it impossible for it to be Map with reference to somewhere else. As Marauder's Map only covers Hogwarts, not of its position relative to London, it would circumvent theoretical unplottable charm. The claim that the map shows every corner of Hogwarts is likely exaggeration, as there is no indication that it shows the Chamber of Secrets or Room of Requirement. However, Map was created based on the Marauders' knowledge of Hogwarts and as none of them were Parselmouths, they would not have been able to access the Chamber of Secrets. Considering that Fred and George had it during the opening of Chamber of Secrets, and the disappearance of their sister into it, it seems very unlikely it show Chamber or they would have mentioned it. Also, it is possible that they do manage to find the Room of Requirement, but that room itself is unplottable as it need be. However, it is not very likely Marauders do discover Room of Requirement as Sirius never suggests Room to Harry as a possible location for meetings of Dumbledore's Army in Order of Phoenix. It is also possible that Sirius didn't think about Room of Requirement at the time. In the book, map is described as a single piece of parchment that could be lay on a desk in the classroom. In the film, map is shown as rather large, much-folded paper with several unfolding flaps within it. This is actually more practical, as it is unlikely that all of Hogwartshaving many floors and towerscould be drawn on a single piece of paper. In the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, one page is added to the Map, featuring the seventh-floor corridor. While Hogwarts Castle is located on a large mountain in films and video games, Map still show Castle on level ground. There is a toy version of Map in every copy of the video game version of Harry Potter and Order of Phoenix, which is an exact replica of the in-game Map. A real-size replica of Marauder's Map prop can be bought at the Noble Collection. In the film adaptation of Harry Potter and Prisoner of Azkaban, Moony is misspell Mooney as an inside joke to film's visual effects supervisor, Karl Mooney.
