How well do you remember Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix?
Accio time-turner! The film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix hit theaters 10 years ago Tuesday, on July 11, 2007.
The angstiest chapter in the saga of Harry Potter’s magical education, Order of the Phoenix picks up following Voldemort’s return at the end of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. But before the resistance — which calls itself the Order of the Phoenix — can turn all of its attention to bringing down the Dark Lord and his Death Eaters, it has to battle another, more quietly evil foe: politics. Minister of Magic Cornelius Fudge, fearful that Dumbledore is trying to steal his job, rejects Harry’s story of what happened the night Cedric Diggory died.
And if it weren’t enough that most of the wizarding world is in complete denial about its own impending destruction, Harry’s being smeared constantly in the Daily Prophet and nobody, not even Dumbledore or Sirius, will tell him exactly what the Order’s been up to. Not the best way to start a new school year.
In honor of the 10th anniversary of Harry’s fifth year at Hogwarts, test your memory of the movie, below.
