Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Question: Why did Hermione take off one of her shoes after the Yule ball?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Because she had been standing on them for hours and her foot hurt.

lionhead

New this month Answer: She had been dancing for a long time and her foot hurt, so she took her shoe off to rub her foot.

Answer: Because her feet hurt after dancing in her shoes for hours. Even though some pairs may hurt their feet, many women will tolerate the pain and getting blisters in order to wear them for as long as they can.

raywest

New this month Answer: Her foot was hurting. She had her shoes on for a long time. Or maybe Krum stepped on her toes a lot and it hurt.

Question: Is it true that Voldemort's eyes are not red in the movies so that he will be less scary for younger viewers?

Chosen answer: Not at all. In fact, David Heyman made the decision for his eyes to be blue in the films for him to be more scary! They felt that his red eyes in Sorcerer's Stone did not show enough emotion to make him an evil character. It was felt in Goblet of Fire that the light blue eyes would be perfect to show his evil in the moonlight, and they kept it on for later films.

Question: If I understand correctly, Lily Potter's "love" protection no longer keeps Harry safe after the graveyard ritual, due to Voldemort getting some of Harry's blood. Why, then, doesn't Voldemort attack Harry at the Dursleys' house in the summer?

Chosen answer: Voldemort's spell undid the Sacrificial Protection that Lily bestowed on Harry, but the Bond of Blood is a separate protection bestowed if the person sacrificing their lives is a relative. THAT spell is still renewed as long as Harry keeps returning to the Dursleys until age seventeen. Voldemort has removed one protection, but a second is still in place.

Captain Defenestrator

Question: While in disguise as Professor Moody, why didn't Barty Jr. grab Harry earlier in the school year and take him to Voldemort?

Chosen answer: It would have looked too suspicious. Voldemort's plan relied on secrecy, and in his position impersonating Moody, Crouch needed to make sure no one discovered him before Voldemort returned to his physical body. Disappearing from school with Harry would have blatantly tipped off Dumbledore.

Cubs Fan

Question: Who killed Frank Bryce? I doubt that was Voldemort, because he doesn't have a body at that moment.

Feather

Chosen answer: Oh, but it IS Voldemort. He is small like a hairless, feeble child, but he has a body nonetheless. When Nagini tells Voldemort, who is sitting in the chair (beside Barty Crouch Jr), that Frank Bryce is in the corridor, he tells Wormtail to step aside before he himself performs the Avada Kedavra with his own wand. We see Voldemort's entire body as Wormtail drops him into the cauldron with the 'rebirthing potion', which gives him the new adult form.

Super Grover

Question: I don't know if this is answered in the books but exactly why did Neville get upset when Moody was doing one of the "Unforgivable" curses?

Chosen answer: Because both his parents, who were aurors, were tortured by Bellatrix LeStrange using the Cruciatus curse so severely that they suffered permanent brain damage. They no longer recognize anyone, including Neville, and are in a near vegetable state of living. That is why Neville lives with his grandmother.

Question: On what Dumbledore thought when he said that the labyrinth has no dragon or sea creatures, but there is something much more dangerous: he didn't know it would be Voldemort in the maze, did he?

Feather

Chosen answer: Dumbledore did not know that Voldemort set a trap inside the maze. Unlike the book, there are no magical creatures or riddles to overcome inside the maze. What Dumbledore is referring to is a test of courage. The four champions must overcome their individual fears in order to successfully navigate the maze and win the tournament.

raywest

Question: What is meant by Crouch Jr's line "I'll show you mine if you show me yours" and Dumbledore's sudden lurch to reveal Harry's scar (The scar that Wormtail makes, not his thunderbolt one)?

Blibbetyblip

Chosen answer: Crouch, Jr. is referring to the fact that both he and Harry now have marks on their arms given in service to Voldemort. At this point Dumbledore doesn't realize that Harry has been cut and had his blood removed to bring Voldemort back. Given his immense knowledge however, Dumbledore is probably aware of the spells that can be used to bring someone back. When Crouch, Jr. says this (referring to his own Dark Mark), it triggers the recognition of what might have happened to Harry and Dumbledore rushes to confirm Harry's forearm scar for himself.

Guy

Question: With Peter being such a coward, why did he actually go and find Voldemort?

Chosen answer: Because he is far more afraid of what would happen to him if Voldemort returned and Peter hadn't assisted in it.

Grumpy Scot

Question: Why did Fleur bring her younger sister to Hogwarts? While Dumbledore is explaining the Triwizard Tournament to the students, there is a shot in which Fleur is shown holding her. Unless she had previously known that she would be chosen as a Tri-Wizard Champion, she couldn't have known that her sister would be needed for one of the tasks.

Chosen answer: Fleur did not know that her sister would participate in one of the tasks, nor did she "bring" her there. Gabrielle was simply one of the students who was chosen to go to Hogwarts. In the book, Dumbledore's purpose in reviving the Triwizard Tournament was to help foster good relations and build strong alliances between the various schools because it would help in the fight against Voldemort. Not every student who went to Hogwarts was there to try and compete in the tournament.

raywest

Question: Why does Voldemort call Peter Pettigrew Wormtail?

Chosen answer: That was the nickname he had been given at Hogwarts. Him and his three friends who could turn into animals (James Potter, Sirius Black and Remus Lupin) all gave each other nicknames relting to their animal form. Peter becomes a rat, and since rats have hairless tails, they chose to call him "Wormtail".

Twotall

Question: Why was Dumbledore portrayed as an emotional character in this movie (being extremely sad, worried and angry)? Whereas in the previous movies and books he is portrayed as an kind, calm and all knowing that other characters look up to. Example of this was in the scene where they found out that Harry unexpectedly became a champion. After entering the room, Dumbledore grabbed him by the shoulders and shook him semi-violently. In the books, he simply looked gravely at Harry and quietly questioned him.

Chosen answer: Dumbledore's character evolves, especially in Harry's eyes. More and more, Harry sees Dumbledore as wise, but with weaknesses and flaws. The movies are portraying this differently than the books, but the point is the same. Harry's realizing that Dumbledore isn't perfect.

K.C. Sierra

Question: During the graveyard scene Voldemort says "I can touch you now." But then he starts screaming, so is he actually in pain or is he mocking Harry?

Chosen answer: Mocking him.

Question: Does anyone know what Fred and George's odds were on the champions at the first and second tasks, and whether they changed?

Chosen answer: The odds given first were Krum 7/4, Cedric 4/1, Fleur 10/1, Harry 37/1. The second time it is near impossible to tell because of the way the board is being held.

Question: Why does Harry not question ever seeing Mad Eye on the map? And does he see Barty Crouch Jr? if so why does he not say anything?

Chosen answer: Harry DID see Barty Crouch on the map, although the map doesn't seem to identify between junior and senior. The impostor Mad-Eye appeared simply as "Barty Crouch". This puzzled Harry, as Crouch was supposed to be ill at the time.

Question: How did Peter Pettigrew find Voldemort? Where has Voldemort been since Harry met him in the first movie? Harry only met a memory version of him in the second movie, and didn't see him at all in the third.

Chosen answer: When Pettigrew escaped in the third movie he learned from other rats that in the forest of Albania there was a fearsome place where a shadowy creature took over and killed animals. He knew this was Voldemort and headed into the forest to join him. That is where Voldemort has been hiding out this whole time trying to stay as strong as he can.

Question: Does Voldemort look the way he did before he was defeated by one-year-old Harry, or is his appearance a side effect of the graveyard ritual?

Chosen answer: He did have distorted looks before going after Harry due to the Horcruxes he created, however, the main reason he looks the way he does is because he drank snake venom to stay alive.

Question: After the second challenge, Harry is upset about coming in last. Hermione says "Next to last, Fleur never made it past the gryndylows." She says 'the gryndylows" in a French accent like Fleur's. Why?

Chosen answer: She was mocking Fleur, who was considered snobby and unpopular with Hogwarts students.

raywest

Question: When Ron and Hermione argue during the dance, two girls are in the background, sitting on the steps and comforting a third girl who is crying. Is there any explanation as to who the girl is and why she is crying?

Chosen answer: There's no explanation given about who the girl on the step is or why she is crying. She is simply an unnamed character whose evening obviously didn't end well and she is upset. This is only meant as background detail to make the scene more interesting and real without distracting the audience. It has no relationship to the main plot.

raywest

Question: Does anyone know the translation of what Fleur says in French after the 2nd match to her sister?

Chosen answer: Fleur says "Come, come" whilst her sister is in the water, then says something like "It's finished" when she's leading her sister away.

Question: During (I believe) the first stadium scene, the girls from Fleur Delacour's school are doing something looking akin to the Macarena. What are they doing and why?

Chosen answer: They are simply cheering on their schoolmate (Fleur) by performing a chant that is probably specific to their school - just like cheerleaders do at sports games. It's like doing "The Wave."

raywest

Question: Perhaps this is covered in the book, left for the next movie, or seen in an extended version, but why is no mention made of Mr. Malfoy being in Voldemort's company at the graveyard? Certainly he's suspected of less than honorable intentions, but this would seem to confirm it.

HumbleHeadHonchoOfHubris

Chosen answer: In the book, Harry describes his experience in great detail, so would undoubtedly have mentioned Malfoy's presence - in the film it can be safely assumed that he would have mentioned it, but off-screen for time reasons. However, while Dumbledore would believe him, the wizardly authorities would require considerably more than the word of a student wizard to start an investigation into an apparently upright citizen like Lucius Malfoy.

Tailkinker

Question: What is "priori incantatem"? I'm told it's explained in the books - what's the deal?

Moose

Chosen answer: In order to explain "Priori Incantatem" an explanation is first needed for "Priori Incantato." In the book Goblet of Fire, during the Death Eaters' rampage at the World Cup, Voldemort's mark appears in the sky. Barty Crouch Sr uses the spell "Prior Incantato" to see the last spell that was cast by Harry's wand, which in the book is the wand that created the mark. That spell creates an image of the last spell cast by a wand, and it emerges from its tip; this is the "echo" of that original spell, and the echo is different depending on that spell. As for "Priori Incantatem," Harry's and Voldemort's wands share the same core - Fawkes' feathers (Dumbledore's phoenix), and when two wands that share the same core battle each other - as Harry and Voldemort in the cemetery, "Priori Incantatem" takes place. This is a reversal of the last spells cast, and the images of Voldemort's victims of the Avada Kedavra curse appear out of the tip of his wand, which include Cedric, Frank Bryce, Lily and James Potter.

Super Grover

Question: Even though Harry didn't put his name in the Goblet of Fire, why did all the students (especially Ron) think he did? Did any of them see him do it?

Answer: People thought Harry put his name in the Goblet for more attention and fame, and thought he already had enough. Ron was grumpier at Harry because, according to Hermione in the books, he was jealous of Harry's fame.

Question: How exactly did Harry and Ron make up after arguing for a while?

Chosen answer: It was somewhat gradual. Ron came to realise that he was being unfair to Harry, but was too proud to make the first move in making up. First he tipped off Harry about the dragons by way of Hermione and several other students. During the celebration in the Gryffindor Common Room, while everyone is celebrating Harry's retrieving the dragon's egg, the squealing noise it makes propels Ron to finally react and talk to Harry.

raywest

Question: Why does Mad Eye point to his left while Harry is looking at him, right before the hedges close in the maze?

Chosen answer: It's a hint. Mad-Eye (rather Barty Crouch Jr., masquerading as Mad-Eye) would want Harry to win the challenge and get sent to the graveyard, so he gives him a little help.

Twotall

Question: What I cannot understand about this movie, having watched it 3 times, is why there is no response to Crouch senior's death by anyone. Having read the book, I assumed it would be made clear at some point that he had been killed by his son, but in fact it's left hanging as a huge loose end. Is it conceivable that the tournament would just continue when the referee and judge has been found dead close to the castle?

Chosen answer: You're right, and there is no real answer to this. The way Crouch Sr.'s death was handled did not make much sense and it is yet another example of how the movies glossed over many plot details that were explained in the books. It would be completely unrealistic that an important official's murder during the event would be overlooked. It's unfortunate that the overall story arc of the series has so many gaping holes in it and the filmmakers expected the audience to "fill in the blanks." That is why there are so many questions about the HP films on this site.

raywest

Question: What sort of class is going on in the scene where Ron, Harry, and Hermione discuss dates (when Hermione reveals that someone already asked her to the dance)? Other teachers/staff are walking around, in addition to Snape, and the class appears to be larger than those in other scenes.

Chosen answer: It appears to be a study hall or homework time.

kristenlouise3

Question: When Moody is demonstrating the Cruciatus curse in front of Neville, does he know who Neville is and that it'll cause a reaction? I'm only asking since Moody is Barty Crouch Jr (who tortured Neville's parents) at this point and surely he would have realised that the demonstration could have jeopardised his whole plan by causing conflict amongst the student body, which would have led to him being found out earlier by the teachers.

Heather Benton

Chosen answer: Moody (Crouch) knew who Neville was and who his parents were because he was one of the wizards who tortured Frank and Alice Longbottom into insanity. The demonstration was geared more toward Harry than it was Neville, however, though Moody knew it could affect Neville the way it did. It probably wouldn't create conflict among most students, as most were dismissive and unconcerned about Neville. Most students would probably welcome being taught something they knew went against school policy. Only Hermione was really concerned about Neville.

raywest

Question: In the part where the Death Eaters march through the encampment after the Quidditch world cup match, does anyone know what they are chanting?

Chosen answer: They are chanting something unintelligible. I ran it several times and it's just gibberish they're saying.

CCARNI

Question: Does anyone know, what is the last word of the quote used on the back of the packaging?

ZillayHuma

Chosen answer: The quote reads: "Terrific entertainment fueled with endless invention." --Roger Ebert, "Ebert & Roeper"

Jean G

Question: Does anyone know what song Harry, Fred, George and Ginny were singing to Ron about Viktor Krum at the Quidditch World Cup and where I can find it to listen to? Thanks.

Chosen answer: The song is not included on the soundtrack. It sounds like they are making up words to the tune of My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean. You wont be able to find it anywhere.

Mortug

Question: If Mad Eye Moody was really Barty Crouch Jr. using the polyjuice potion as a disguise, why was he being so nice to Harry at the beginning of the book? For example, when he was showing the class how a certain spells affect people, why was he so happy when Harry fought the spell? Also, when Malfoy almost cast a spell on Harry, why did he get mad at Malfoy?

Chosen answer: People have to believe that he's who he's pretending to be - Moody's the sort of person who would approve of Harry's attitude to things, so Crouch must do likewise. He also has to teach in a way that Moody would - very hands-on, showing approval to good students. Moody would also hate the underhanded tactics used by Malfoy, hence Crouch's defence of Harry. He has to make Harry (and everyone else) believe that he's on his side, that he's one of the good guys - if anyone got suspicious, it would be a threat to the plan, which requires Harry to survive through to win the Tournament. As such, up to that point, he'll protect Harry to the best of his ability.

Tailkinker

Question: A while after the Yule ball scene, after Harry wakes up from a nightmare, Neville comes in. He says something like "I got in! Me!" What is he talking about? What did he get into?

Chosen answer: What Neville means is that he's only just got back in from being at the Ball, despite it being extremely late at night. The "Me!" simply reflects that fact that even Neville is aware that of everyone in the dormitory, he is unquestionably the one you'd least expect to be the last one back. Exactly what Neville has been up to is an open question, but he certainly seems excited about it. Alternatively, since Neville has a reputation for forgetting the password to the Gryffindor common room, "I got in! Me!" probably means that he is marveling at the fact that he remembered the password and actually got in to the common room and dormitories without any help.

Tailkinker

Question: At the beginning of the movie, Peter asks Voldemort if they can perform the ritual without Harry. Why? Does he now feel bad for betraying Harry's parents?

Chosen answer: There are several reasons here. Peter Pettigrew regretted betraying the Potters and knows he is a lowly coward for having done so and for obeying Voldemort out of fear. He also knows that Harry spared his life during the confrontation in the Shrieking Shack (in Prisoner of Azkaban) when Lupin and Sirius were about to kill him. Because of Harry's mercy, Pettigrew is now magically bound to Harry with a life debt. In the books, this will later cost Pettigrew his life when he hesitates to kill Harry (in Deathly Hallows) and his silver hand instead fatally strangles him for defying Lord Voldemort.

raywest

Question: This just interests me, but when Harry's name comes out of the Goblet of Fire, and he has to go and join the champions, why is Dumbledore angry with him? There's no way Harry could have submitted his own name because he's not of age yet, and he is not educated enough to over-ride Dumbledore's Age-Line spell or fool the Goblet into accepting him, and there's no way Hermione would have helped him because she's too moral about using magic for the wrong reasons; Dumbledore should know both these things already if he is such an intelligent and knowledgeable wizard.

Chosen answer: Quite simply, the first assumption anyone would have would be that, however the name got in there, it was because Harry wanted to circumvent the restriction. That's why, when Dumbledore comes back to see him a minute later, the first thing he did was grill Harry about how the name got in there. Harry hardly has a flawless record where school rules are concerned, and even Ron assumed he'd done it somehow.

Garlonuss

Question: I couldn't understand it while watching the film: is the "U" In Victor Krum's name pronounced as an "Ah" (Kram) or as an "OO" (Kroom)?

Chosen answer: Closer to the latter. If you pronounce it to rhyme with "drum", you'll be pretty close.

Tailkinker

Question: In the scene when Harry is packing his trunk at the end and Dumbledore is talking to him about setting the curtains on fire, does anyone know what is written on the top section of the four-poster bed?

Chosen answer: Roman numeral GXXV (Gryffindor 25).

raywest

Question: If Fred and George were thrown out of Dumbledore's Age Line for submitting their own names into the Goblet, shouldn't have Moody been thrown out for submitting Harry's?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: One, Moody was of age; so the age line would have had no effect whatsoever on him. Two, if "Moody" was able to fool the Goblet, a powerfully magical object, into announcing a fourth entrant into the Triwizard Tournament, it seems reasonable that he would be able to get past any protection Dumbledore may have put in place.

Phixius

Question: What did Ron do to Hermione to make her think he "spoiled everything"?

Chosen answer: Ron having a horrible time and berating her for being "with the enemy" had her upset. Plus the fact that there is a growing attraction between the two that has been evident since the second movie, she feels that he should have seen her in a different light and not just a "convinience" date to ask at the last minute.

Boobra

Question: Just after Dumbledore announces the TriWizard Challenge, there's a short scene where Igor Karkaroff slips into the deserted Great Hall where the Goblet of Fire is kept. It wasn't Igor who put Harry's name in the goblet, and Viktor Krum submitted his own entry. Obviously the audience was being led to believe that Igor may have been involved in the plot against Harry (he wasn't), but what was the real reason he went in there?

raywest

Chosen answer: There is no reason. In the books this scene does not occur, so the idea behind putting it into the film is purely to mislead the audience.

Scrappy

Answer: Because Igor wanted Viktor to get into the tournament so he put Viktor's name in again so he could raise his chances of getting picked.

Question: After the second task Harry has a reddish mark on his face and down his neck. Anyone have any idea what this could be?

Chosen answer: They are from the attack by the grindylows just before Harry left the Black Lake. Fleur Delacour has the same type of marks on her neck and shoulders when she goes to help Gabrielle up onto the platform.

Addreamy

Question: If Crouch used the polyjuice potion to be certain people, how was he able to take their voice as well? When Harry and Ron used the potion before, they kept their normal voices.

Chosen answer: This is never covered in the book either, but Crouch was a fully trained wizard while Harry and Ron are not. It's not unreasonable to think that there is a spell that allows you to imitate voices perfectly. There were candies in the last film that made people sound like monkies and lions, a voice spell wouldn't be that different.

Grumpy Scot

Question: Regarding Mad Eye Moody. 1: Why is he drinking a polyjuice potion in front of Harry in the classroom? 2: Why does it starts storming in the great hall when Mad Eye Moody enters? Does this has anything to do with it being the wrong Moody? 3: Was Barty Crouch killed by Moody? If yes, did Barty senior know it was his son?

Loesjuh1985

Chosen answer: 1. Because nobody knows it's polyjuice potion, and it's not suspicious at all for Mad-Eye Moody to drink from his own flask. 2. It's a storytelling technique called foreshadowing. So while, in the movie's world, the storm has nothing to do with this Moody being an impostor, within the context of the film as a storytelling medium it does. 3. Yes, Barty Sr. was killed by Barty Jr. Barty Sr. was breaking down mentally from spending so long under the Imperius Curse. In his brief moments of sanity, he was able to connect the dots and figure out that what his son was up to.

Phixius

Question: In the graveyard scene, I'm absolutely sure that Wormtail cast the Avada Kedavra spell on Cedric, but why is everybody saying that Voldemort killed Cedric then?

Loesjuh1985

Chosen answer: You're right. Wormtail did kill Cedric on Voldemort's orders. At that point, Voldemort did not yet have his body back and was unable to kill Cedric himself. Some of the confusion may come from the fact the Wormtail used Voldemort's wand to kill Cedric, which is why his ghost comes out of the wand during the fight with Harry.

Guy

Question: This goes for both the the movies and the books. Why does Karkaroff keep trying to talk to Snape?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: Because both of them are former Death Eaters who have the Dark Mark branded on their arm. Karkaroff's was getting stronger, so he kept trying to talk to Snape to get information if he had any, as he was convinced that Snape was still a Death Eater (as we saw in the book in the trial scene). Karkaroff was terrified of the prospect of returning to Voldemort, as he had betrayed several Death Eaters to the law when he was caught.

Question: When Harry returns with Cedric's body, and the students are in the stands, shocked and saddened, who is the girl standing to Neville's right? Pretty girl with long strawberry blonde hair and bangs. My husband thinks it's Susan Bones.

Chosen answer: The girl is not identified. If it is Susan Bones, it's a different actress playing her. Eleanor Columbus, daughter of director/producer Chris Columbus, played Susan Bones in the first two Harry Potter films. The Susan Bones character is not in the cast listing on IMDB for HP and the Goblet of Fire. This looks like Hannah Abbott, who was played by Charlotte Skeoch.

raywest

Question: When the fake Professor Moody is in his office with Harry, revealing everything he did, Dumbledore charges into the room with Professors McGonagall and Snape. All three of them are prepared to attack when they enter. How did they figure out that something was wrong?

Chosen answer: When it was noticed that Harry was missing during the commotion surrounding Cedric's death, someone in the crowd saw Moody leading Harry away and tipped off Dumbledore. Dumbledore knew that the real Moody never would have taken Harry away like that without telling anyone. Also, Snape is a legilimens (able to read minds) and would be able to "hear" Harry and Moody's thoughts.

raywest

Question: Why did Voldemort go to all the trouble of having Barty Jr. transform into Mad Eye etc. when he could have simply made anything into a port-key and arranged for Harry to touch it?

kyliestrum

Chosen answer: Voldemort's intention was to return via the same portkey in front of the assembled crowd and make his return immediately known in a very public fashion. In order to do so, he needed to wait for the crowd to be assembled. Crouch's job was to ensure Harry got to the portkey first.

Phixius

Question: What are the three curses Mad-Eye Moody taught (or you can say Barty Crouch Junior)? Cruciatus and avada kedavara - what's the third?

Chosen answer: The three curses are the Unforgivable Curses. The Cruciatus Curse (crucio) causes intense pain. The Imperius Curse (imperio) puts someone under mental control. The Killing Curse (avada kedavra) kills instantly.

Question: Why does Barty Crouch Jr. flee when the prisoner says his name? Surely the minister's son could easily claim that the desperate prisoner trying to get out of jail's claim is completely false. And was the man in prison in that scene the Damstrung headmaster, and if yes, is that why he and Moody (Crouch) were so suspicious of each other in the trophy room right after Harry's name was drawn?

bomberswarm2

Chosen answer: Even though Barty Jr. could claim he was being set up, he would have been interrogated using veritase serum, a potion that forces wizards to tell the truth. Some can circumvent its effect, but Barty was not a talented enough wizard to do this. The prisoner who implicated him in that scene was Igor Karkaroff, who became headmaster of Durmstrang, the wizard school that was participating in the Triwizard Tournament. Karkiroff was a Death Eater who defected to Dumbledore's side. Moody (a disguised Barty Jr.) would never have trusted him under any circumstances. Karkaroff had been previously pursued and captured by the real Mad Eye Moody, and would naturally have a negative reaction to being around him.

raywest

Question: What exactly was happening when Harry casted red sparks with his wand in the maze? All things just seemed to get more aggressive. Did Dumbledore say to Harry that he can use red sparks if he want to give up?

Loesjuh1985

Chosen answer: In the book, the finalists were told to shoot off sparks out of their wands if they got lost or got into trouble in the maze - sort of a distress flare. As to why things get nasty at that moment, most likely it's because Mad Eye has rigged the maze to make sure that Harry wins and touches the cup first, which wouldn't happen if Harry had to give up.

roboc

Answer: Harry was not giving up. Harry saw that Fleur needed help, and cast red sparks to bring attention to her.

Question: This goes along with the previous question about that song that starts at :33 on the first trailer. Does anyone know what kind of music genre it would be under so I might find an album that sounds like it?

HulkObsessedChick

Chosen answer: I can do better than that. The track is called "The World Waits" by Edmund Choi, from the soundtrack to the movie "The Dish". If you're in the UK, the track can be downloaded here for 70p: http://is.gd/5KgJb.

Madstunts

Question: Is it possible for someone to tell me, what was the music playing in the trailer? The one on this site I mean, from Trailier Addict. The song starts at :33 and I would really like to know what it is and if it's possible to get it somewhere.

Chosen answer: The only listing of trailer music that I know of doesn't provide direct timecodes for when each track is used, but, looking at it, it seems likely to either be an unnamed piece composed specifically for the trailer by a group called "Brand X Music", in which case there's likely no chance of finding it, or a track entitled "Terms of Enchantment" by James Dooley. Dooley tends to write incidental pieces for use in trailers and so forth, which would probably make it very difficult to track down, although there have been collected albums of such tracks in the past. It may also be called "The World Waits" by Edmund Choi, from the soundtrack to the movie "The Dish".

Tailkinker

Question: Who was the guy in the red uniform that follows Krum and Karkaroff about? Is it ever explained whose aide he is, or what his job is?

Chosen answer: It's never explained; in the movie or the book. Maybe just an aide.

Zwn Annwn

Question: During the first task with the dragons, there is a shot of Hagrid in the stands. It seems very deliberate that there is only one other person sharing the shot, although slightly in the background. It really looks like the author, J.K. Rowling did a cameo in this shot. From her statement several years ago I realize she would be reluctant to do a cameo, but is there some more up-to-date information?

Chosen answer: I'm not an expert, and I haven't seen any information about her changing her mind about doing a cameo. But I watched that scene very carefully and it does not look like J.K. to me.

citysister

Question: Why does the enchanted ceiling in the Great Hall begin acting weird when Mad Eye Moody (Crouch) makes his entrance during the beginning-of-the-year feast?

raywest

Chosen answer: The ceiling does not really start acting weirdly when Moody enters. The ceiling is enchanted to portray whatever the outside sky is doing, and, as it is stormy outside, it is therefore stormy on the ceiling. It is just a coincidence that just as Moody enters, there is a lightning strike, and he thinks that it is a curse or some other magic spell.
