The Goblet can only spit the fourth candidate if it is bewitched. It takes a strong charm to do this. MAD-EYE: The hell he is. The goblet of fire is an exceptionally powerful magical object, only an exceptionally powerful conjurer could have hoodwinked it. Magic way beyond the talents of a fourth year. It was later revealed that Barty Crouch Jr., who was ...

The book doesn't have that line exactly. The first relevant line is in Chapter 33: “You stand, Harry Potter, upon the remains of my late father,” [Voldemort] hissed softly. “A Muggle and a fool . . . very like your dear mother. But they both had their uses, did they not? Your mother died to defend you as a child... and I killed my father, and see how ...

When Barty Crouch Jr. says, I'll show you mine if you show me yours. he wasn't referring to the dark mark, but to the wound Harry got at the graveyard. He was trying to let on that they got Harry's blood and after that, he would have revealed his dark mark. When he says this, Dumbledore got curious and checked Harry's arm to see if it got the dark mark, ...

In the books, there's absolutely no canon evidence that the ceiling of the Great Hall "reacts to evil". It's simply enchanted to mirror the actual sky outside (a point that is repeated throughout the series); there was a storm - totally unconnected to "Moody" (Barty Crouch Jr. using Polyjuice potion) - raging outside on the first day of term in Harry's ...

I'd stick with what System Down wrote in the comments: different directors. I have at least two reasons for that. First, there is no mention of the difference in the books. He always appears in the flame. Here is what it says in the "Goblet of Fire": The room was in semidarkness; the flames were the only source of light. Nearby, on a table, the Support ...

I took that scene as Crouch wanting to prove to Dumbledore that Voldemort is back, by showing his Dark Mark burning on his arm, which hadn't happened since Voldermort had disappeared all those years ago. He knew that Harry was being taken to give blood to contribute to the resurrection, and was effectively backing up his claim to Dumbledore that the plot ...

He did, but the scene wasn't included in the movie. After the imposter Moody, Barty Crouch Junior, was kissed (executed) by Dementors, the Minister is looking for Dumbledore and shows up in the infirmary where Harry is recovering from his injuries. At this point, Harry tries to tell him about Voldemort's return and lists all the Death Eaters who Voldemort ...

Because the guests were not staying exactly in Hogwarts, they were staying in the vessels they arrived in. Durmstrang in their ship and Beauxbatons in their carriage. They were 'parked' outside of Hogwarts, so the carriages were there to take the students from their vessels to Hogwarts.

Muggle-born is the term given to a witch or wizard who is born to two non-magical parents. -harrypotter.wikia.com And his mother was Muggle-born but calling her Muggle implies that he thinks Muggle-born are no better than Muggles. Even when he is also half blood. I think lots of pure bloods think in similar way.

Because the medium is different. It's clear that the spell used by Sirius Black is Floo Network's Head-only transport. But the medium for both the instances are different. In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, when Sirius Black talks to Harry there is only coal present in the fireplace. But in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, when Sirius talks ...

Harry knew Gabrielle because she was Fleur's most precious someone during the 2nd task of the Tri-Wizard tournament. She did not arrive at Hogwarts with the Beauxbatons school, she was later fetched for the task itself. If Fleur had not been a participant, Gabrielle would never have been at Hogwarts.

This question has been discussed here and here. In short, the portkey already contained the charm that would teleport the winner (the first person who touched it) to the beginning of the maze - this was by design of the tournament. Note that only one such portal existed, because there was only one cup, to be held by the only winner (Harry and Cedric weren't ...

In Goblet of Fire, the real Moody was essentially kidnapped/taken hostage by Barty Crouch Jr., who then impersonates him using Polyjuice Potion. Barty Crouch Jr., who is a Death Eater (i.e. one of Voldemort's supporters), does this in order to get close to Harry, who he uses as a pawn to help revive Voldie. You can read the SparkNotes summary, if you like. ...

What happens to Prof. Moody in Goblet of fire? Well, he was kidnapped and imprisoned in the box by the Barty Crouch JR. And Barty needed him to keep his appearance as Moody intact. In the end, Snape used Verataserum to make him tell the truth. He and Prof. Dumbeldore found him in that box and rescued him. After he was rescued, he was, of course, free. ...

Though it is neither explained in books nor movies why other schools didn't participate in this battle. But here is a theory. Voldemort only returned to Hogwarts because he came to know that what was Harry and his friends up to and that Harry was in Hogwarts. His ultimate aim was to kill Harry and rule the wizard world. The battle of Hogwarts last for one ...

After a lot of research online to find an answer, I have a theory for this now - The intention of making Dumbledore offer these magical, strange, semi-sentient, toothed sweets to Harry is nothing but to show the humorous side of Dumbledore's character. The film-makers have done this at a few places in the entire series and sometimes (like in this scene) they ...

He was bound to compete. TenthJustice points out in his answer to “Why was triwizard tournament continued even when Dumbledore knew that it was dangerous for Harry?” (on Sci Fi SE) Dumbledore himself talked about this contract. The information isn't only from Crouch. This is in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (book) chapter 16, when Dumbledore ...

tl;dr: Since the story is viewed from Harry's point of view, we follow him as a participator and don't get shown (in either book or movie) how the spectators, for whom stands were built at each location, observe the proceedings, but it is presumably via magical means. This is going to be a tough one: The Tournament, called the Triwizard is held (for the ...

Obviously because Beauxbatons probably admitted students at a much younger age than Hogwarts did. That is plausible but I have nothing to back it up as the movie never uttered why. I think Rowling subconsciously wanted to establish girls were smarter than boys. Ron was surprised to find Krum still at school. Which meant Durmstrang did quite the opposite ...

That's not true! Madame Maxime (Head-mistress of Beauxbatons) did accompany Hagrid on his quest to enlist the help of the giants on Dumbledore's orders. That's how he is absent from Hogwarts for the initial portion of the 5th part. They have not covered this in the movie unfortunately.

Probably From Pottetmore, the purpose of Morsmordre is: [To cast] a giant skull with a serpent's tongue into the clouds for all to see Considering Voldemort's ultimate goal was to 'put muggles in their place', it makes sense that the Dark Mark would be visible to everyone. Making it non visible to muggles wouldn't be as effective if you're trying to ...

It's different because the effects budget was allocated differently and probably handled by a different effects team. The embers effect is significantly more complicated and refined, which means expensive and relatively difficult. The flame version is a comparatively cheap and easy solution, it looked to be primarily compositing.

Because the films had different directors who probably had different ideas for how the effect should look and/or be achieved.
