everything you need to know: harry potter and the goblet of fire

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Voldemort’s followers storm the Quidditch World Cup which Harry attends with the Weasleys and Hermione, they also meet up with Cedric Diggory and his father Amos. Hogwarts becomes home to the Triwizard Tournament, a competition which sees Hogwarts, Durmstrang (a school in Bulgaria) and Beauxbatons (a school in France) join together to find a Champion. Traditionally there is only one champion from each school, although someone submits Harry’s name into the Goblet of Fire and he becomes the fourth Triwizard Champion. When in Dumbledore’s office, Harry looks into a Pensieve and see’s Death Eater trials. Along the way he receives help from Mad-Eye Moody, the fourth Defence Against The Dark Arts teacher and makes it through to the final round of the tournament on top. When Harry and Cedric Diggory, the other Hogwarts Champion, reach the Triwizard Cup at the same time they are transported to a graveyard where Peter Pettigrew kills Cedric and he makes a potion, stealing blood from Harry to resurrect Lord Voldemort to human form. Harry and Voldemort duel, Harry escapes and returns to Hogwarts with Cedric’s body. Voldemort is back.

What the movie doesn’t tell you:
Even though it’s pretty obvious that Hagrid is half-giant, you find out in the book that he doesn’t admit this readily because of the stigma surrounding giants. In the book Hermione also starts S.P.E.W. (the Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare) an organisation about the rights of house elfs. Dobby comes to work at Hogwarts in the kitchen. Harry gives Fred and George his Triwizard winnings of 1000 Galleons to start their joke shop. There is also a lot more mystery surrounding the death of Barty Crouch. You find out that Rita Skeeter, the annoying “journalist” from The Daily Prophet, is an animagus (she can turn into a beetle) and that is how she gets inside scoop.
