Pictures. It is based on J. K. Rowlings 2003 novel of the same name. The fifth instalment in the Harry Potter film series, it was written by Michael Goldenberg (making this the only film in the series not to be scripted by Steve Kloves) and produced by David Heyman and David Barron. The story follows Harry Potters fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as the Ministry of Magic is in denial of Lord Voldemorts return. The film stars Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, along side Rupert Grint and Emma Watson as Harrys bestfriends Ron Weasley and Hermoine Granger.On the eve of the release of the seventh and final book in J.K. Rowlings wildly successful epic series about a certain boy wizard comes the fifth adaptation in the equally phenomenal film franchise, “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.” With new-to-the-series director David Yates behind the camera, directing from a screenplay by Michael Goldenberg, its darker in tone than previous “Harry Potter” movies but is just fabulous to look at, with several spectacular sequences that posed major creative and technical challenges in bringing them to life on screen.
“Phoenix” finds Harry and his friends Ron and Hermoine in a darker place, dealing with the return of consummately evil Lord Voldemort and the arrival at Hogwarts of a sadistic martinet of a new teacher who makes their lives miserable. Compounding that, Harry — accused of lying about Voldemort and ostracized for it at the outset — copes with a much-heightened version of teenage angst.”Its the most emotional of the stories,” opines veteran Potter producer David Heyman. “The actors have grown, not just age-wise but in the depths of their portrayals. We experience both Harrys first screen kiss and some of the pain that comes with that. Its a really moving story full of thrills, adventure, and visual effects and great new characters and creatures. I think weve upped the ante on this one.”Director Yates agrees that “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” is “more emotional, intense and a bit edgier” than previous versions, citing the “violent and scary” wizard battle at the films end and a tone-setting scene early on where the aforementioned new instructor, Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher Dolores Umbridge (Imelda Staunton) turns Harrys detention into torture. THE ANALYSISI. Analysis of CharactersDaniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter – You can never have a flawless character. No one is perfect. Even the Chosen One is not perfect. We are here to talk about Harry Potters character, more specifically, what makes him great and what does not make him great. Harry Potter is the son of James and Lily Potter. He is known as the Boy Who Lived because of his defeat of Lord Voldemort as a baby. Because of that, he was destined to be a hero, a rival for Voldemort, and our protagonist.
