A 'Harry Potter' refresher

A ”Harry Potter” refresher — A quick recap of what’s happened since the last film

Posted on

Voldemort Rising
The evil warlock has returned from the dead and begun amassing an army of Death Eaters — who abhor Muggles, or anyone who isn’t a full-blooded wizard. Is ex-sympathizer Professor Snape (Alan Rickman) playing for the bad guys?

Hormones at Hogwarts
Ron and Hermione are teenagers (Ron’s even a Quidditch star!), and their feelings for each other are changing. Meanwhile, Harry, split with Cho Chang, has started feeling all tingly whenever Ron’s not-so-little sister Ginny enters the room.

Someone To Lean On
Harry’s had bad luck with father figures. Lupin (David Thewlis) is off fighting dark forces, and Sirius Black (Gary Oldman) has been killed. Harry still counts on Dumbledore, though as Prince begins, we see signs that the headmaster has his own destiny to follow.
