Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Harry, Ron, Hermione, Neville, Ginny and Luna go to the Department of Mysteries. They find a prophecy that says "..and the Dark Lord will mark him as equal, but he will have power the Dark Lord knows not... and either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives." Harry and his friends fight the Death Eaters and Sirius is killed by Bellatrix Lestrange. Dumbledore and Voldemort battle one another and Voldemort possesses Harry. Harry rejects Voldemort and says that he pities him because he'll never know love and friendship. Minister Fudge and other members of the Ministry of Magic see Voldemort (as he escapes quickly) and they finally know and realize that he's back. The Ministry of Magic admits that Voldemort is back and Dumbledore is re-instated as the Headmaster of Hogwarts. Dumbledore admits to Harry why he has been distant lately: he did it on purpose so that (maybe) Voldemort would be less tempted to get to Harry. Luna Lovegood puts up Wanted flyers at school for her belongings (they were stolen by students as a joke and not by nargles) and she finds her sneakers. Harry, Hermione and Ron leave Hogwarts until next year and Harry mentions that they have on their side something that Voldemort lacks: friendship, love and that those are things worth fighting for.


Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix mistake picture

Continuity mistake: At 12 Grimmauld Place, when Harry and Sirius are in the room with the Black family tree, as Sirius says, "My parents with their pure-blood mania," the area of the wall with both Sirius's and Andromeda's names and burned off pictures is quite visible (as in other shots as well). Bellatrix's name is beside Andromeda's (her sister), but there is no picture over Bellatrix's name banner in this shot (only branches and leaves), nor in any other shot, except in the previous close-up, as Sirius says, "My deranged cousin," where there is a picture of Bellatrix over her name.

More trivia for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Question: I don't understand why Voldemort needed the prophecy from the Department of Mysteries. Doesn't he already know that Harry can possibly kill him, since Harry conquered him on the night of James and Lily's murders?

Answer: When Voldemort originally attacked Harry, he was acting on information provided to him by Snape. But Snape's information was not complete, ergo why Voldemort lost his powers. He wants the prophecy in order to hear it in its entirety, because he believes it will give him the information he needs to kill Harry.
