With their warning about Lord Voldemort's (Ralph Fiennes') return scoffed at, Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and Dumbledore (Sir Michael Gambon) are targeted by the Wizard authorities as an authoritarian bureaucrat slowly seizes power at Hogwarts.
Stuart Craig's design of the Ministry of Magic was inspired by early London Underground stations, where, he said, architects "tried to imitate classical architecture but they used ceramic tile", as well as a Burger King on Tottenham Court Road in London, where "there's a fantastic Victorian façade which just embodies the age".
I don't know about you, it's just too hot today, isn't it? And it's going to get even worse. Temperatures up in the mid 30's Celsius, that's the mid 90's Fahrenheit, tomorrow maybe even hitting 100. So please, remember to cover up and stay cool with...
(at around 18 mins) When Harry and Mr Weasley are descending into the Ministry, using the visitors' entrance, only the inside of the phone box in the street moves. When the scene cuts to the interior of the Ministry, they're in a complete phone box. However, if you look closely you can see that there is in fact a frame moving inside the original phone box, clearly it is a double. Otherwise, guests would have been in danger of falling off.
The ending credits are presented in the same typeface as Professor Umbridge's numerous educational decrees.
Because this film includes so many scenes with important, written newspaper headlines, some dubbed versions have resorted to adding a voiceover reading them in their respective language. An example of this would be the German release.
