The next morning Ron was waiting impatiently for the Daily Prophet to arrive. He had already shoveled down three platefuls of eggs and bacon so the newspaper could have his undivided attention. When it did show up, he unfurled it quickly and there they were. The four Champions. Individual pictures were taking up the top half of the page. There was Fleur, Cedric, Krum and HARRY POTTER? Ron scanned the story, as it went into detail about each of the four champions and at the very last paragraph of the story was, "Unfortunately Harry Potter, the Boy-Who-Lived, was injured trying to perform an overly complicated spell for his age and will be unable to compete. Per the rules of the Triwizard Tournament, he named Tom Weasley, son of Arthur and Molly Weasley, as his replacement."
The essence of the book, and the chess scene that was carefully constructed by IM
Jeremy Silman, lost the richness of the Harry Potter experience when
converted for the movie audience. The chess moves designed for this story were
meant to tell a hidden story of their own that symbolised the larger struggle,
but was lost in editing to become "mumbo-jumbo." Although the final movie scene
was appreciated for its dramatic action, it fails to portray chess strategy
(and to fully recognize Ron's intellect) and so loses a chance at inspiring
many Harry Potter fans to pick up chess to stimulate their minds.
