Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Trivia: The costume department tried in vain to produce Luna's radish-like earrings. Evana Lynch made her own - they're the ones she wears in the film.

Trivia: Helen McCrory was originally cast as Bellatrix Lestrange, but dropped out due to her pregnancy. She was replaced by Helena Bonham Carter. In 2007, McCrory was cast as Bellatrix's sister, Narcissa Malfoy, in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Trivia: The director and other persons of importance had cut Kreacher out of the film. JKR told them that she couldn't tell them what to do, but the final film wouldn't make sense if they didn't introduce Kreacher in this one. Five minutes later, Kreacher was back in.

Trivia: The barman seen with the goat at the shabby Hog's Head Inn where Harry and Hermione hold the first Dumbledore's Army meeting is Aberforth Dumbledore, Albus' brother. In the novels he runs the Hog's Head Inn and was investigated for performing improper magic on goats. (This was confirmed by J.K. Rowling in an online chat at The Leaky Cauldron.)

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix mistake picture

Continuity mistake: There are two scenes during which Harry is shown having visions of the Dept of Mysteries while he is asleep. The first scene occurs after Harry's confrontation with Seamus in the Gryffindor common room. There are shots of Harry lying in bed wearing a short sleeve, crew neck tee shirt, but when he is startled awake by the vision of Voldemort, he sits up wearing a buttoned henley tee. The next day is the first day of Defence Against the Dark Arts class with Umbridge. That last shot of Harry in the henley tee shirt was cut from a later scene. Later in the film, when Harry has the vision of Arthur Weasley's attack, he is wearing the henley tee shirt. (00:34:00 - 01:09:35)
