    There’s a rumour that Ian McKellen might replace Richard Harris as Dumblenore in the next movie. Wouldn’t he look like… Gandalf???

      That would be too cute. I think I would rather have Christopher Lee… Tolkien fans would appreciate the irony ;)

        actually, there was rumor back when Richard Harris had pneumonia that the stunt double (who apparently looks and sounds just like him) would be the one takingh is place if he succumbed to illness mid-movie. I think it would be logical – even really cool – if they did this for the rest of the movies. minimize the break in continuity.

          i heard that it could be either ian mckellen or harris’s stunt double.
          they would both do a good job, i think. anyhoo, let’s hope the book
          comes out, the movies arent as good as the books.

            Ian McKellen looked like Gandolf because of make-up and a wig. It will probobly be the same for dumbledore.

    Harry Potter 5 (Order of the Phoenix)
    Harry Potter’s first through fourth years at Hogwarts have taken readers of all ages on a magical ride never to be forgotten. The Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter’s fifth year at the legendary school for witch craft and wizardry, should prove as exciting, or even more so, than the last four. So strap up, Potter 5 is going to be a bumpy, magical ride.

    questions of the year
    Here are my questions:

    At the end of book four Harry thinks he sees “something like triumph in Dumbledore’s eyes” what do you think this means?

    Do you think Harry and Hermione wil get together?

    Finally, since Dumbledore never told him, Why did Voldemort want Harry dead as a baby?

      He wanted harry dead because harry´s father was godric gryfindor´s last relative (I don´t know the exact word)…so when he killed harry ´s da, harry became the last godric gryfindor relative alive and as voldemort is the last relative of salazar slytherin he wanted to end with gryfindors family!

          harry & miss granger?? an unlikely couple.. Since it seems
          the author has plans for hermione and ron, likewise with harry n that huflepuff girl. I think what Dumbledore meant was that harry has grown in a sense.

          • torme says:

            Re: questions of the year
            I only ask about Hermione and Harrry because it seems like a good fit. If they end up Head Boy and Head Girl it would be as if he was following in the steps of his mother and father who were head boy and Head girl. And as for the whole Dumbledore thing, I agree with you but Ihave a friend who thinks differently so I thought I would see what everyone else has to say.

              QUESTions

              I have only read the 4th book twice (sadly) but i have some
              questions?
              well what is up with harry, and the other raven girl? there must be
              some kinda special thing with her for her to become a main
              character.
              When will ron try to hit on Hermione?

              I think that by the end there might not be closer.

              how can it end at school. Isnt that a paradox. Just when there
              finished with there training for the world the books end. When
              harry, ron, and hermione are there strongest the story and its world
              is just supposed to end. I dunno how she is going to make me feel
              that there could be no more stories.
              Not to compare Lord of the Rings to Harry Potter in any other way
              then by the most basic story writing. In the last Lord of the
              Rings(LoTR) the closer was absolute and not one ounce of your
              body even wanted the see more because you knew that it was
              over and that was great.

                Actually in LoTR there is more, a whole lot more. Any true fan of LoTR knows about Dagor Dagorath and Melkor and Turin fighting each other in the end. The numonoreans who sailed from numenore to fight the valar will be released and given the choice to fight with morgoth(who was the master of their kings advisor who was sauron)or with the valar and the world will end and Aule and the dwarves will have to rebuild it. That is just in short what happens after LoTR

            I would like to make a prediction. Harry and Miss, granger both become prefecs as well as Hermioine attempts to be abducted by dark wizards. Harry doesn’t like Cho anymore but he and Hermoine have a ‘thing’ going on. Sirius and snap get a polyjuice potion of The malfoys (snap and Lucius and Sirius as Draco’s mother). Draco starts to be nice to everyone due to the fact that him amd ginny have something going on as well, Harry tries to become a antimagius (lion is his chosen animal) …. if I got ANY of this right please e-mail me at [email protected]

        to your first question personally i have no idea i think some other people had your awnser there but the the harry hermione thing no they cant that world suck all good things end when the main caractures get involved there friends and its better that way. and then what about krum and ron. yeah and then the next one about why harry whas supposd to be killed it was because his parents were fighting against voldemort.

          harry’s mother once was a death eater and voldemort wanted to take revenge by killing her and her family

        Ok this is my theory about the triumph in dumbledores eyes. In one of the books he said some thing like im afraid that voldermort doesn’t have enough human in him to truly die so when harry told him what happened and how he has a new body I thinks there might be a way to kill him for good.

      I don’t know, but I was wondering the same thing.

      Do you think Harry and Hermione wil get together?

      No, I don’t. I think Hermione will get together with Ron & Harry will eventually end up with Ginny.

      Finally, since Dumbledore never told him, Why did Voldemort want Harry dead as a baby?

      Because Harry has a birth given ability in wizardry that can extinguish Voldemort in a blink??

      Finally, since Dumbledore never told him, Why did Voldemort want Harry dead as a baby?

      ok first off little dude, the “look of triumph in dumbledore’s eyes”. my theories r that it wasn’t really dumbledore (someone using a polyjuice potion). or, J.K. just added that to make the next book seem more suspenseful. next, hermione is (i’m guessing) gonna hook up with Ron. it’s too obvious. finally, i don’t know anything about that last question. but voldemort obviously didn’t want to kill harry’s parents, because of what harry heard when dementors got too close in the 3rd book. (“‘stand aside you silly girl!!’ ‘no no please, not harry!!!'”) apparently, voldemort wanted to end either James potter, or lily potter’s bloodline. i think that james or lily was in league with voldemort until one realized they had fallen in love with the other.that’s why voldemort killed the parents.

      It appears Dumbledore felt it was a triumph that Voldemort chose to revive himself using Harry’s blood. How Harry’s blood will affect Voldemort (other than making him now capable of touching Harry) is yet to be seen.

      Do you think Harry and Hermione wil get together?

      The books seem to suggest that Ron will be the one to get with Hermione. I’m also of the opinion that Harry eventually will get with Ginny as she matures a bit, despite his current crush on Cho. It just makes a nice ending for both Harry and Hermione to marry into the likable Weasley family.

      Finally, since Dumbledore never told him, Why did Voldemort want Harry dead as a baby?

      Dunno. While a lot of speculation could be made here (and there likely may be a particular reason) Voldemort killed lots of wizards who opposed him, and it could also be as simple as that.

      On a few other notes…

      Anyone else find it a bit creepy that 18-year-old Krum has got a thing for 14-year-old Hermione? I know she’s mature for her age, but jeepers…

      My guess is Rita Skeeter will be back to cause trouble in the future as well. You’ll recall she was in the room to hear the discussion between Dumbledore and Fudge, to witness escaped convict Sirius’ transformation from dog to human, and to see what looks like Snape being asked to play spy against Voldemort. She’s much too big a gossip to keep all that to herself, even with Hermione threatening to tell her animagi secret.
      (Seriously Hermione, you should have reported her to Dumbledore immediately so that Memory Charms could have been employed.)
