Revealing mistake: In the Forbidden Forest, HRH are introduced to Grawp. Just as the giant lifts Hermione off the ground, in the shot from behind her, Hermione's legs disappear below her calves; the digital lines are actually visible. Slow-mo is not necessary. (Only visible on fullscreen DVD.) (01:29:40)
Harry Potter returns to his fifth year at Hogwarts. No one believes his story about Voldemort's return and Cedric Diggory's death. To make matters worse, the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, Dolores Umbridge, is the most horrible, awful teacher they've met. Apparently, the Ministry has put her there to spy on Hogwarts and stop people from believing Voldemort is back. Harry has strange dreams of locked doors and very long hallways. What could it all mean?
Kingsley Shacklebolt: You may not like him, Minister, but you can't deny it, Dumbledore's got style.
Trivia: The director and other persons of importance had cut Kreacher out of the film. JKR told them that she couldn't tell them what to do, but the final film wouldn't make sense if they didn't introduce Kreacher in this one. Five minutes later, Kreacher was back in.
