everything you need to know: harry potter and the order of the phoenix


Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
The Ministry of Magic is poisoning the magic community against Dumbledore and Harry, saying that they are lying about the return of Lord Voldemort and writing untrue things about them in The Daily Prophet – the wizarding newspaper. Harry ends up producing a Patronus in front of his cousin Dudley as Dementors were “roaming” around Little Whinging. Harry is nearly expelled from Hogwarts. Because Voldemort is back, the Order of the Phoenix (the organisation who fought him last time) has formed again and they use Sirius Black’s house at Grimmauld Place as headquarters. Harry spends the rest of his summer there with the Weasleys and Hermione and is irritated when he isn’t keep in the loop. The new Defence Against The Darks Arts teacher, Professor Umbridge, is an official from the Ministry and she refuses to teach practical applications in class. Harry then starts Dumbledore’s Army (D.A.) to train students who want to learn. It is discovered that there is a connection between Harry and Voldemort, so Dumbledore requests that Snape teach Harry Occlumency. Harry sees a vision of Sirius being tortured by Voldemort. Harry believes that this is true because he saw a similar vision of Mr Weasley being attacked that turns out to be true and so escapes Hogwarts with Ron, Hermione, Neville, Luna and Ginny to fight of Voldemort’s Death Eaters. Sirius was never there, but members of the Order come to the Ministry of Magic, where the fight is occurring, and Sirius is killed. Dumbledore arrives and he fights Voldemort. The Minister for Magic arrives in time to see that Voldemort has actually returned.

What the movie doesn’t tell you:
Aunt Petunia actually knows about Dementors when Harry produces a Patronus in front of Dudley – she’d heard about them from Lily. Professor Umbridge was also the one who sent the Dementors to Little Whinging to try and get rid of Harry. Harry, Fred and George receive a life-time ban from Quidditch under Umbridge’s orders after fighting with Malfoy – Malfoy gets nothing. Firenze the centaur starts teaching Divination after Umbridge dismisses Trelawny. Kreacher, Sirius’s house elf, lies to Harry about Sirius’ whereabouts on the orders of the Malfoys. The prophecy, made by Professor Trelawny, shows that it could have been Neville; it was between him and Harry and because Voldemort chose Harry and marked him as his equal, Harry becomes the Chosen One. When visiting Mr Weasley at St Mungos, Harry, Ron, Hermione and Ginny run into Neville visiting his parents, they were driven insane by Bellatrix Lestrange using the Cruciatus Curse upon them. Ron and Hermione are Gryffindor prefects.  Hermione blackmails Rita Skeeter into interviewing Harry to show his side of the story of what happened to Cedric and Luna’s father publishes it in The Quibbler, a wizarding magazine.
