Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle. Together with Dumbledore they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort’s defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, the well-connected and unsuspecting Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information.
Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Harry finds himself more and more drawn to Ginny, but so is Dean Thomas. And Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, only she hadn't counted on Romilda Vane’s chocolates! And then there’s Hermione, simmering with jealousy but determined not to show her feelings. As romance blossoms, one student remains aloof. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again. David Yates, who directed the 2007 summer blockbuster “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” returned to direct.
Once again heading the cast, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson reprise their roles, facing new challenges and dangers in the wake of Lord Voldemort’s return. They are reunited with returning Harry Potter cast members, including Helena Bonham Carter, David Bradley, Robbie Coltrane, Warwick Davis, Tom Felton, Michael Gambon, Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith, Julie Walters and David Thewlis.
Two award-winning actors joined the film’s all-star cast. Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent (“The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”) plays professor Horace Slughorn. Helen McCrory (“The Queen”) plays Narcissa Malfoy, mother to Draco Malfoy and sister to the evil Bellatrix Lestrange.
