This just in: Screencaps from “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix”

 
 

Warner Bros. has just released some screen shots from the upcoming Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, due in theaters July 13. I admit I have long been a Potter fan but have only recently come to appreciate the movies. But now that the series is winding to its inevitable conclusion (so sad!!), I think I’m just OK with getting as much Potter as I can before it’s all over. Take a look at some of the new photos (warning: some are slightly spoilery!):

Emma Watson as Hermione, who’s thinking, "Why are we in this freaking Forbidden Forest again? Why? We have exams, I tell you!"

Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Hermione, still in the forest and staring at, apparently, a very large being. And look at how tall Ron is!

At first I thought this was Harry’s hearing at the Ministry of Magic for using magic in the presence of Muggles, but then I see that Harry’s sitting over there to the left. Who is that person behind the All-Powerful Dumbledore?

Ron: OK, OK, I’m coming. Let’s go find Harry a date already.

Look at how Dudley has grown! And there’s Fiona Shaw, one of Britain’s 100 most influential gay people (Saffron Burrows‘ partner) as Aunt Petunia.

Ah, the dreaded, way-too-pink office of Dolores Umbridge. Look at all those plates decorated with tiny dogs! Ha!

Professor McGonagall (Maggie Smith) comforts the quite-batty Sybil Trelawney (Emma Thompson) while Dolores Umbridge (Imelda Staunton) gives pink a bad name.

Harry and Cho’s (Katie Leung) first kiss. Sweet or sick? I can’t decide. I’m much more on the Ron-Hermione bandwagon.

The gang’s all here: Ron, Luna Lovegood (Evanna Lynch), Neville Longbottom (Matthew Lewis), Hermione, Harry and Ginny Weasley (Bonnie Wright) together at the conclusion of the film. Is that a prophecy in Harry’s hand?
