Potter’s fifth year at Hogwarts School sees a defense against evil in the David Yates’ directed HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX.
J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” was published in 2003.
The Devil’s got a name and it’s Lord Voldemort! The Dark Lord has returned to the flesh and has begun rallying troops. Trouble is, none of the bureaucrats at the Ministry of Magic believe young Harry Potter about Voldemort’s return. To quell the growing dissent from Hogwarts, the Ministry puts the putrid, pink Dolores Umbridge at the helm of the school, who cracks down on students and faculty and outlaws all lessons on Defense Against the Dark Arts. With his host of mentors imprisoned or in hiding, it’s up to Harry to form a secret society to fight against the growing threat of Voldemort and learn a few new tricks under Umbridge’s upturned nose. Stupefy!
