Movie Summary

David Yates

Voldemort's power is growing stronger. He now has control over the Ministry of Magic and Hogwarts.

      • Harry: You're brilliant, Hermione. Truly.
        Hermione: Actually, I'm highly logical, which allows me to look past the extraneous detail and perceive clearly that which others overlook.

      • Moody: For those of you who haven't taken Polyjuice Potion before, fair warning: It tastes like goblin piss.

      • Scrimgeour: (addressing the press) These are dark times, there is no denying. Our world has, perhaps, faced no greater threat than it does today.
