    Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Movie Discussion

    Well, not even a month has passed since Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was released, and I think it is the best HP film yet - but I am constantly looking to the future, and HP and the OotP looks just as good, maybe even better.

    One of the most exciting aspects for me is the casting. So far, I think there are no casting mistakes for this movie;

    Helen McCrory as Bellatrix Lestrange - she looks scary there!

    Imelda Staunton as Dolores Umbridge

    Laura Fraser as Nymphadora Tonks

    Liz Smith as Arabella Figg - seen here in a much loved British comedy The Royle Family

    Una Stubbs as the mighty Amelia Bones

    Top class actresses there, not many new males though. So what is MiceChat looking forward to about Harry Potter 5?

    Re: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Movie Discussion

    Although Order of the Phoenix did not impress me as a book, I will be happy to see some of the Harry Potter Characters, who were left out of Goblet of Fire.

    It will be good to see Molly Weasley, Sirius Black, and I certainly hope they bring the Dursleys back.

    I was not impressed with the many things that they left out of Goblet of Fire.

    Perhaps Order of the Phoenix can be a better movie than it was a book.

    Re: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Movie Discussion

    ^ I fully agree frankly this is the weakest book in the series and I think JK Rowling is well aware of it. She groomed her readers with a very specific formula regarding Harry and the school. We started the previous books in conflict with the Dursley's at there house, move to the school and the conflict happens at the school and Harry acts like this magnet for trouble.

    Look how in book six she returned to the formula and it really saved the book, not only that but she gave a reason for Harry to return home one more time to the Dursleys for book seven.

    Frankly I am probably the least excited for this movie as I was movie 2, which to my mind was a remake of the first movie/book.

    Re: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Movie Discussion

    With this being the longest of the 6 books and so much important detail, this would be their best opportunity to split the movie in two. They should just film it all together, but split it up like they did with the Kill Bill movies. I don't feel there is one main plot to stick to in this book. All the parts of the book relate to the next. One thing I hope they don't cut is the hospital scene. Where they run into Neville visiting his parents and run into Lockhart as well. It's gonna be interesting to see what happens. If they don't split it(which I'm sure they won't), I hope they at least tack on an extra half hour! Everyone sat through 3 hours of Titanic and all the Lord of the Rings movie. I certainly would sit for another half hour for this!!

    Re: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Movie Discussion

    I really don't think that the author of the books is too worried about being true to the books in the movie. That was proven in the filming of Goblet of Fire. I felt they changed the plot, way too much.

    I expect the same to happen in Order of the Phoenix.

    I will enjoy seeing the characters, the kids, the faculty. the Dursleys, Harry's godfather and Lupin and the Weasley family. Hopefully they will all be present this time.

    Basically the premise of the Order of the Phoenix, in my opinion, is a wake up call for Harry. He realizes just how flawed the adults are in his life. He faces much disappointment. He grows up some more, and learns a lot more about his past.

    Re: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Movie Discussion

    Well the second time I saw Goblet of Fire, it felt like three hours. I would certainly sit thought three hours of any Harry Potter film, even though book 5 is the weakest. And yes, I too can't wait for the hospital scene, I was so excited when I read it to see Gilderoy again!

    (I know this thread is for film 5, but is anyone else looking forward to seeing Narcissa in film 6? They had a perfectly good oppurtunity to tease Cissy fans in film 4, she could have been a member of the Malfoy party at the Quidditch World Cup like she is in the book - she didn't even have to say anything, just being there would be cool)

    I do hope they include the Dursleys in the next movie. Aunt Petunia, in particular, revealing she knows what Dementors are must be included.

    Re: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Movie Discussion

    Oh my god, I think it is book 5, when Petunia and Dumbeldore have that really important chat about how importarnt Petunia is to Harry's protection etc? If it is, that will be the highlight for me. It gave my shivvers when I read it.

    Re: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Movie Discussion

    I think OotF should be great. It was my second favorite book in the series (behind only #7) and I'm very excited about it. I'm just hoping that Dolores Umbridge is as dispicable as she was in the book. And yes, I would definately sit through 3 hours of HP.

    Re: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Movie Discussion

    I truly have enjoyed all the books. I actually enjoyed OotP because it started to show how Harry and Voldemort's legacy reaches well beyond Hogwarts.

    I look forward to Umbridge, hem, hem....

    I like the looks of the cast choices!

    They HAVE to have the scene with Dumbledore and Petunia -- it is so important!!

    Dolores Umbridge so upset me. The way she tortured Harry. It also upset me that Harry did not confide her brutality to any of the adults in his life. That only helped to prove to me, that he did not really trust the adults in his life as much as before. It also showed how much he was willing to deal with his own problems in his own way.

    Re: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Movie Discussion

    Dumbledore and Petunia are never in the same scene in OoTP.....

    All that happens is Petunia gets the Howler.

    What are you guys talking about?
