Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Movie Summary

David Yates

Before attending Hogwarts for another school year, Harry Potter is introduced to the Order of the Phoenix, a secret organization founded by Professor Albus Dumbledore to prevent Lord Voldemort from coming to power. Harry finds out that the wizard community does not believe that Lord Voldemort has returned, and that since Harry refuses to retract his statements saying so, the community is beginning to distrust him. Once at school, Harry and his best friends, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley find out that Hogwarts has hired a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, Professor Dolores Umbridge, who refuses to teach her students anything useful. Since the three friends know that Lord Voldemort has indeed returned, they form a secret club, Dumbledore's Army, where they learn how to protect themselves from dark magic. Rumour begins to spread that there is a prophecy in the Department of Mysteries that explains why Lord Voldemort tried to kill Harry when he was a baby.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Harry: Hey, Big D. Beat up another 10-year-old?
      Dudley: This one deserved it.

    • Dudley: Where is your mum? Where is your mum, Potter? She dead? Is she dead?

    • Sirius: (Harry, Ron, Hermione, Fred and George eavesdrop on a private conversation) If anyone has a right to know, it's Harry. If it wasn't for Harry we wouldn't even know Voldemort was back. He's not a child, Molly.
      Molly: But he's not an adult either. He's not James, Sirius.
      Sirius: Well, he's not your son.
      Molly: He's as good as. Who else has he got?
      Harry: (Ginny appears) Hey, Ginny.
      Sirius: He's got me.
      Severus: How touchingly paternal, Black. Perhaps Potter will grow up to be a felon, just like his godfather.
      Sirius: Now, you stay out of this, Snivellus.
      Harry: Snape's part of the order?
      Ron: Git.

    • Sirius: We think Voldemort wants to build up his army again. Fourteen years ago, he had huge numbers at his command. And not just witches and wizards, but all manner of dark creatures.

    • Luna: (Hermione, Ron, Luna, Neville and Ginny try to convince the other classmates that Voldemort is back and that Harry should teach them defence) Is it true you can produce a Patronus Charm?
      Hermione: Yes, I've seen it.
      Dean: Blimey, Harry. I didn't know you could do that.
      Neville: A-And he killed a basilisk, with the sword in Dumbledore's office.
      Ginny: It's true.
      Ron: Third year, he fought off about a hundred Dementors at once.
      Hermione: Last year, he really did fight off You-Know-Who in the flesh.
      Harry: Wait, Look, it all sounds great when you say it like that but the truth is most of that was just luck. I didn't know what I was doing half the time. I nearly always had help.
      Hermione: He's just being modest.
      Harry: No, Hermione, I'm not. Facing this stuff in real life is not like school. In school, if you make a mistake you can just try again tomorrow. But out there... when you're a second away from being murdered or watching a friend die right before your eyes... You don't know what that's like.
      Hermione: You're right, Harry, we don't. That's why we need your help. Because if we're going to have any chance at beating... Voldemort...
      Nigel: He's really back?

    • Harry: Right. First we need to find a place to practice where Umbridge won't find out.
      Hermione: The Shrieking Shack.
      Harry: It's too small.
      Hermione: Forbidden forest?
      Ron: Not bloody likely.
      Ginny: Harry, what happens if Umbridge does find out?
      Hermione: Who cares? I mean, it's sort of exciting, isn't it, breaking the rules?
      Ron: Who are you and what have you done with Hermione Granger?

    • Neville: Fourteen years ago a Death Eater named Bellatrix Lestrange used a Cruciatus Curse on my parents. She tortured them for information but they never gave in. I'm quite proud to be their son.

    • Shacklebolt: (Dumbledore evades Azkaban by disappearing in a burst of flame with his phoenix - Fawkes) Well, you may not like him Minister, but you can't deny Dumbledore has got style.

    • Harry: (Harry and his friends arrive at the ministry to save Sirius whom Harry has seen being tortured in a vision) Where's Sirius?
      Lucius: You know, you really should learn to tell the difference between dreams and reality. You saw only what the Dark Lord wanted you to see. Now, hand me the prophecy.
      Harry: You do anything to us, I'll break it. [Lestrange laughing]
      Lestrange: He knows how to play. Itty, bitty baby. Potter.
      Neville: Bellatrix Lestrange.
      Lestrange: Neville Longbottom, is it? How's Mum and Dad?
      Neville: Better, now they're about to be avenged.

    • Lucius: All we need is that prophecy.
      Harry: Why did Voldemort need me to come and get this?
      Lestrange: [whispering] You dare speak his name? You filthy half-blood!

    • Dumbledore: It was foolish of you to come here, Tom. The Aurors are on their way.
      Voldemort: By which time I shall be gone, and you shall be dead.

    • Voldemort: So weak. So vulnerable...
      Harry: ... You're the weak one and you'll never know love or friendship. And I feel sorry for you.
