Things are starting to get heated politically at the Ministry of Magic on chapter 11 of DH. Muggle-born wizards are being questioned and asked where they stole their wizarding powers from, Mundungus isn't wild about being dragged back to the scene of his multiple crimes, and we get a mention of one Dolores Umbridge. In this episode, Helene and Adri talk about the politics of persecution and the Holocaust as it pertains to these events. We want to hear from you!

Welcome to Harry Potter Theory. Today we're discussing Albus Dumbledore and his cursed hand. More specifically, we're going to be breaking down Dumbledore's death, the curse itself and one scenario in which MAYBE, just MAYBE- Dumbledore could have saved himself. Let's get in to it. Months before Dumbledore's tragic demise, Dumbledore himself had decided to track down one of Voldemort's horcruxes: a small ring crowned with a strange, dark stone. And what made this particular Horcrux unique is that this stone was in fact one of the fabled Deathly Hallows - the Resurrection Stone to be precise. The history of the stone dates back some time, with its origin story suggesting that it had been given to the middle Peverell brother, Cadmus Peverell, by Death himself. "Then the second brother, who was an arrogant man, decided that he wanted to humiliate Death still further, and asked for the power to recall others from Death. So Death picked up a stone from the riverbank and gave it to the second brother, and told him that the stone would have the power to bring back the dead." As mentioned above, this stone had the power to summon spirits back from the dead. But when Voldemort stole his uncle Morfin's ring years and years prior, he had no idea that it contained such a powerful relic. To him it was just a family heirloom, and, more importantly, an item that he could taint with dark magic, an item that he could turn into a HORCRUX. But when Albus first found the stone and noticed it's distinct markings, he immediately realized that it was one of the three Deathly Hallows. Knowing the true power of the stone, Dumbledore's curiosity got the better of him, and he ended up placing the ring on his finger, securing his fate. My question is this: if Dumbledore's curse had been effectively confined to a single hand- why not just...Get RID of said hand?
Oliver Wood ist ein sagenhaft guter Hüter, der vor allem durch seinen Ehrgeiz hervorsticht. Später schlägt er sogar eine professionelle Quidditchkarriere ein. Ist er bei der Schlacht von Hogwarts dabei und kann man eigentlich einen Crush auf Oliver Wood haben?

Olympe Maxime ist in vielerlei Hinsicht was besonders: Sie ist eine weibliche Schulleiterin, sie ist eine Halbriesin und ist Hagrids potentielle Partnerin. Ist sie das wirklich oder hat sie alles nur gespielt? Wann hat sie wohl von ihrer Herkunft erfahren? Und wieso ist sie eigentlich nicht bei der Schlacht um Hogwarts dabei?
Welcome to Harry Potter Theory. Today we're discussing 10 things you missed in the Deathly Hallows part ONE. By the time the Deathly Hallows rolled into theaters, the general public was already well versed in the lore of the Harry Potter world. But even the most knowledgeable Potterheads were liable to miss some of the smallest details in the film. With nuanced decisions from filmmakers, as well as small callbacks to previous Potter books, there is plenty to unearth in the Deathly Hallows - Part 1, and more than enough things you might have missed. Today, we'll take a look at this penultimate movie in the Harry Potter series, and cover all the little things that might have passed you by.

Welcome to Harry Potter Theory. Today we're discussing Harry's ‘death' at the hands of Voldemort in the Deathly Hallows. More specifically, we're going to be diving in and dissecting the nuances of HOW it happened, WHY it happened, and HOW Harry was able to come back to life. To set the scene – we're in the Forbidden Forest and Harry comes face-to-face with Voldemort once again. However, unlike previous confrontations – from his meeting with a fragmented Voldemort attached to Professor Quirrell, to their duel in the graveyard of Little Hangleton – this time Harry does not intend to defend himself or fight back. He's come to die. Fans of the book will remember the chapter as the aptly named “The Forest Again” and movie lovers will certainly know this scene as the one right after Harry sees his dead loved ones through the magic of the Resurrection Stone – one of the three fabled Deathly Hallows. Voldemort and his followers are waiting for Harry to turn himself over – a deal Voldemort has proposed in exchange for the safety of the other wizards who have been fighting alongside Harry in The Battle of Hogwarts.

Dementoren sind wohl die schrecklichsten Kreaturen der Wizarding World. Sie bewachen Askaban das Zauberergefängnis. Aber wie kommunizieren sie eigentlich? Wie pflanzen sie sich fort und was passiert nach dem Kuss eines Dementors? Dementoren sind das Sinnbild für Depressionen. Wenn du unter Depressionen leidest, zögere nicht dir Hilfe zu suchen. Vertraue Dumbledore, wenn er sagt, dass Glück selbst in den dunkelsten Zeiten gefunden werden kann, wenn nur jemand ein Licht anzündet.
Welcome to Harry Potter Theory. Today we're discussing 10 crazy details you probably missed from the Deathly Hallows book. I've already done a video on this for the FILM version, so if you haven't seen that, then go and have a look afterwards. The Deathly Hallows is perhaps the darkest entry in the entire Harry Potter series. Filled with war and death, the book follows the final moments of Harry Potter's quest to destroy the horcruxes that Voldemort hid around Britain. With so much lore, and so many intertwining stories, it's easy to overlook some of the smaller interesting facts and tidbits that fill its pages. So today, we're going to take a deep dive into the final chapter of Harry Potter's life at Hogwarts, and rediscover some of the things you might have missed.

Welcome to Harry Potter Theory. Today we're discussing Harry and Voldemort's final showdown in the Deathly Hallows part 2; the day that Lord Voldemort's tyrannical regime finally came to an end. We're also going to be discussing why every time Harry and Voldemort meet and engage in combat (which happens a fair bit), they resort to using the same spells over and over again- with Voldemort using Avada Kedavra and Harry using Expelliarmus. We see this in their graveyard duel in the Goblet of Fire, and we also see this in their final fated duel at the Battle of Hogwarts. My question is this: WHY is it that Harry Potter resorts to Expelliarmus for (seemingly) every circumstance? With the wizarding world at stake, wouldn't it make sense for Harry to use something like the killing curse? Why would he rely so heavily on a glorified disarming charm? Wouldn't Harry want to guarantee surety of Voldemort's demise? Yes Expelliarmus ended up working for Harry, largely- actually, EXCLUSIVELY due to extraneous circumstances- but I can't help but wonder why Harry would opt for a common duelling spell.
Keep the Milk Duds flowing and the popcorn poppin' because FFH is back with another movie episode and The Wilsons aren't feeling quite as charitable with the second half of Deathly Hallows. While the ending may be a flaming pile of actual garbage, there are plenty of magical moments to discuss leading up to it. Plus: a beyond-the-grave recast, marriage lessons from two epic adventure films of years past, and say it with us: BILLY ZANE IS NOT IN THE MUMMY. Support the show

Welcome to Harry Potter Theory. Today we're discussing life in the Harry Potter universe AFTER the Battle of Hogwarts and Deathly Hallows...A time AFTER Voldemort's defeat. Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley's marriage produced three children. Unlike their parents, most of the Potter children lived a peaceful, quiet life. But surprisingly… one of them… an ugly duckling sorted into Slytherin… nearly resurrected Lord Voldemort and destroyed the wizarding world as we know it. So… Who exactly were Harry's children? And what legacy did they leave behind? Join us, as we answer these questions, and more…

Discover the transfiguring effects of reading the Harry Potter series on this month's episode. Emily and Katy talk with Dr. Anne Mamary (Monmouth College) about her anthology The Alchemical Harry Potter: Essays on Transfiguration in J.K. Rowling's Novels (McFarland 2021). We talk about the power of the Potter books and films, and how they not only express alchemical themes but also work a kind of alchemical magic on readers and viewers. Anne explains that alchemy is a way to transform not only metals but also the alchemist and our entire worldview. Although we could look at nature from a modernist perspective, requiring the neutrality of the experimenter and presuming a mechanical model of the universe, alchemy requires being open to the enchantment within nature and our deep connection to it. Not all historical alchemists were Christian, but often a notion of religious or metaphysical transformation emerges through alchemical explorations of nature. Anne explains that alchemy posits that the heavenly exists within the earthly, that the sacred can be found everywhere, and we live in an enchanted world that is not just a world of machines. She sees this approach pervading the Hogwarts curriculum and the Harry Potter novels as a whole. Pointing out the overt alchemical references in the books, from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Anne also explains how the themes of immortality and personal transfiguration connect alchemy with the book series. Harry's journey through the seven books helps him to transform worldly aims into more meaningful ones. For example, desire for money and immortality transforms into a desire for a “golden life.” Alchemical experiences change how Harry views power as well as self and the community. Anne gives us a glimpse of some of the essays in her anthology that explore these themes in more detail, including her own about the alchemical importance of stargazing in both Plato and Harry Potter. To highlight the intergenerational power of the novels, The Alchemical Harry Potter features essays by authors from the ages of 8 to 80. We also talk about rereading Harry Potter and how reading it at different points in one's life can effect different transformations in the reader.

Welcome to Harry Potter Theory. Today, we're discussing Harry Potter, Voldemort, and the special connection these two characters share. On one fateful late October evening (October 31st to be specific) in the year 1981, Lord Voldemort, at the height of his power, travelled to Godric's Hollow and the home of the Potter's. It was on this night that the course of history changed, as Voldemort had travelled there with one goal in mind: kill the boy.

Helene is out sick (get well soon, Helene!), but we've got a returning guest to try to fill her shoes: Seth Wilson, your favorite host who has only read a few chapters of the series lends us his outside view into the series. Seth and Adri talk about the idea of “developing” vs “developed” countries and how it has roots in white supremacy, which can be translated into wizard supremacy. We talk about how these different spheres in British society, with their own governments and cultures, can give us a glimpse into how the complex of superiority can lead us astray. We also talk about how Arthur Weasley can be an example we hold dear when it comes to interacting with cultures different than our own. We want to hear from you!

This week, the hosts grab their Time Turners and summon all the nostalgia that will fit in their beaded bag as they revisit the day after receiving Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Andrew, Eric and Laura were in London for a live podcasting event at Waterstones, and Micah was stateside. We reflect on our initial impression of the book, what things we feel differently about 15 years later, and how magical it felt to witness the "end" of an era together. Also on this episode: dramatic line readings of some Book 7 reactions and e-mails from the day after that we finally respond to! We've just announced our 2022 Patreon Gifts - The MuggleCast Collectors Club and the MuggleCast Wand! Pledge to our Patreon by August 7, 2022 and fill out the form(s) to receive your gifts! We are so proud of this year's items and hope you check them out! Main Discussion: Revisiting MuggleCast #101, our first Deathly Hallows reactions episode Why did we start off Episode 101 talking about Lord of the Rings? Eric reminds us of how things have changed since 2007. Laura and the hosts lament the lack of return to the Department of Mysteries, across two time periods! Podcasting had made all the hosts cold, hard people. Did the deaths in Book 7 really even affect them? Did any of the deaths feel 'unnecessary' to us then, and do they now? 15 years later... does the epilogue feel satisfying? And what about those names for the kids? The hosts listen to themselves predicting what the Deathly Hallows movie will entail. We read some of the most dramatic reactions to the book, found in the MuggleNet Comments Section on July 21, 2007. Listener e-mails include: Who was the late-blooming Hogwarts student? What was it about Lily's eyes? And, what happened to Kreacher? Quizzitch: Who witnessed Dumbledore using the Sword of Gryffindor to destroy the Gaunt Ring?
