    27 Weird Behind-The-Scenes Photos That Are Honestly Just So Strange To Look At

    I can't decide if these are funny or just plain weird.

    Movies and TV shows all have a certain ~magic~ behind them. Often, behind-the-scenes pics take away that magic.

    Like this photo from The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, with creatures from the film revealed to be just men in green tights.

    And every once in a while, I see a behind-the-scenes pic so far from the reality of the film that my brain truly starts to twist in knots. Here are some of the most chaotic BTS pics that just make me feel weird inside.

    Sony Pictures Releasing

    1. Wow, I didn't realize Voldemort, Bellatrix, Dumbledore, and Harry were so close!

    2. Or that Hagrid was so small?!?

    3. Just a regular ol' pic of the Avengers here, right? Wait a minute...those aren't the Avengers!

    4. I think I'm seeing double in this set pic from Captain Marvel.

    5. I can't explain it, but this picture of Christopher Lee and Ian McKellan riding a golf cart on the set of Lord of the Rings is a mood.

    6. Watching these "dinosaurs" creep around on the set of Jurassic World was the weirdest thing I saw today.

    7. There is something really freaky about watching corpse-Hannah dancing behind the scenes of The Haunting of Bly Manor.

    8. It's kind of cute to watch Robert Rodriguez play guitar with Grogu on the set of The Mandalorian...but also kind of weird.

    Here’s a Christmas present to all those who asked me what it’s like to hang out with Baby Yoda on the set of #TheMandalorian #TheTragedy. Check out #DisneyGallery for more behind the scenes!

    9. I don't even know what's going on in this BTS Star Wars prequel shot, but I do know it's weird to see Obi Wan holding a stick instead of a lightsaber. And what's Hayden Christensen doing there on the side?

    10. Benedict Cumberbatch doing the motion capture for Smaug in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug just makes me uncomfy.

    11. As does this picture of Bella/Kristen Stewart patting Jacob/Taylor Lautner in his "wolf" form from the set of the Twilight films.

    12. There is something so funny about this picture of a very serious Anthony Mackie having his feet held up on the set of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

    13. This isn't quite how I remember Gollum from Lord of the Rings.

    14. When they said the prince was turned into a beast in Beauty and the Beast, this wasn't really what I was expecting.

    15. It's honestly disconcerting to see the Lannister siblings getting along well on the set of Game of Thrones.

    16. ...But not as strange as watching Emilia Clarke stroke her "dragon."


    17. I'm kind of obsessed with (and also confused by) these photos of Bryan Cranston getting a little out of character on the set of Breaking Bad.

    18. And I simply have no clue what's going on in this video from the set of Stranger Things.

    19. I guess Steve and Jonathan are closer than we thought!

    20. Um, Allison doesn't seem too worried about the apocalypse in this background shot from The Umbrella Academy.

    21. Nell seems quite unconcerned posing with her dead future self in this shot from The Haunting of Hill House...

    22. ...Which still feels less creepy than this photo of baby Luke posing with a ghost.

    23. My brain is short-circuiting. It cannot compute seeing young Kate, Kevin, and Randall alongside teenage Kate, Kevin, and Randall on the set of This Is Us.

    24. It's a little weird to see the way they shot the Hulk carrying Betty in The Incredible Hulk.

    25. I mean, I'm kind of rooting for Eve and Vilanelle on Killing Eve, but it still feels weird to see them hugging after the infamous stabbing scene.

    26. Bob posing happily with a walker on the set of The Walking Dead has me completely freaked out, tbh.

    27. And finally, I'm just not used to seeing Violet and Klaus all chummy with The Hook-Handed Man on the set of A Series of Unfortunate Events.
