Year Five. After facing off against Lord Voldemort during the events of Goblet of Fire, Harry returns to Hogwarts amidst widespread denial of the Dark Lord’s return. Minister of Magic Cornelius Fudge believes Dumbledore is secretly fueling the rumors in a bid for the magisterial position, an idea Harry and friends know is preposterous. But when the minister installs Dolores Umbridge as the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, the Hogwarts students are stuck learning theory instead of practical spells that will protect them in the looming war. Hermione decides to start a secret, student-led group to teach the sorely needed spells. Order of the Phoenix features the most reviled character in the Harry Potter universe, Professor Umbridge, who is portrayed pitch-perfectly by the inimitable Imelda Staunton. The film also introduces Helena Bonham Carter as the fanatically insane Bellatrix Lestrange.
