A First Look: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Starring:
-Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint

In what may be one of the most anticipated movies of 2007, Harry Potter enters his fifth year at Hogwarts and does so with some very Muggle complications. Now fifteen years old, Harry has a crush, some attitude, and all the problems facing average kids his age. Oh yeah, and then there’s that Voldemort guy.

The first trailer has been released and my take on it is pretty simple. Director David Yates has done what looks like a fantastic job in combining London and Hogwarts, and allowing Harry to step into the beginnings of an adult life as a wizard.

Like the other movies in the series, and the Eragon moving coming soon to theaters, there’s been some really brilliant translations of books to film. Most importantly though, movies like this get people reading and that is always a very good thing.
