In Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Hedwig was given to Harry as a gift for his 11th birthday by Hagrid. She was always there for Harry to deliver his mail, or just hang out with him while he lived at the Dursleys' home. She was such a hoot and will always be missed.
Keep clicking for more of our favorite moments from the eight Harry Potter movies, but watch out! SPOILER ALERT! We may talk about a plot point or two.
Ah, yes the infamous hat that decides your fate at Hogwarts. Can you imagine what would have happened if Harry actually got placed in Slytherin during Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone?
In Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, this troublemaking mountain troll was a diversion created by Professor Quirinus Quirrell so he could attempt to capture the Sorcerer's Stone for his master The Dark Lord. Little did he know that his evil plot would foster the moment when Harry, Ron and Hermione become true friends. Aw! Big hug.
Who could forget the simple days (in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone) when Ron would crush Harry in a heated game of Wizard's Chess? Now that we think about it, it actually got pretty dangerous when the trio played a deadly game in the chamber in order to find the Sorceror's Stone. That was one of the first times we saw the loyalty in Ron toward Harry and Hermione.
En Garde! Rictusempra! The Duelling Club was formed when the Chamber of Secrets was opened and Professor Gilderoy Lockhart wanted the students to learn how to protect themselves by duelling (or just get some attention for himself ). This led to one of the first scuffles between Malfoy and Potter, you know, the one where Draco conjured a snake to attack Harry. It was finally revealed to the school that Harry is a Parselmouth, which is a trait of The Heir of Slytherin.
"For those of you who haven't taken Polyjuice Potion before, fair warning. It tastes like goblin piss," Mad-Eye Moody warned in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. We have seen the potion used many times, but one our favorite moments has to be when Hermione accidentally pulled the wrong hair from Millicent Bulstrode's coat and she turned into a cat!
Every muggle's dream car has to be this one. It flies, it can be invisible, and it has the ultimate trunk space because it has a whopping six trunks! Road trip anyone? That might not be possible any longer since Ron and Harry drove flew it straight into the Whomping Willow in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Who are we kidding? It's a magic car afterall and it survived that crash landing, and later saved the boys from trouble.
A fearful battle between Harry and Salazar Slytherin's basilisk (controlled through Tom Riddle's enchanted diary) ensued in the Chamber of Secrets. Harry ultimately killed the basilisk with Godric Gryffindor's Sword, which had been concealed in the Sorting Hat that Fawkes delivered due to Harry's loyalty to Dumbledore.
Enough is enough I tell ya! That's basically what Hermione meant when she threw a jab at Malfoy after he insulted her in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. You go girl!
It's just so Hermione! She was given the Time-Turner by Professor McGonagall in The Prisoner of Azkaban in order to take extra classes that she didn't have time for initially, and she could now be in two places at once. However, she ended up using the time travelling device as a means to help save Sirius Black and the hippogriff Buckbeak.
Kisses aren't normally associated with sucking the happiness from your soul, but in the world of wizards nothing is what it seems. In the Prisoner of Azkaban Harry and Sirius Black find themselves by the Black Lake surrounded by a hundred Dementors, and are almost left for dead. However, Harry catches a glimpse of a familiar figure across the way who summons a Patronus in the shape of a stag, which finally drives those pesky Dementors away.
In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the tournament of all tournaments requires the best and bravest students to compete in the magical competition. It is likely that each participant will stand in the face of death due to the impending danger that comes with each challenge. Harry Potter was entered into the tournament as a scheme plotted by Lord Voldemort to destroy the boy. Of course, he valiantly prevailed through each challenge.
In Goblet of Fire, the most feared Dark Lord finagles his way back into full physical and magical form. Of course he didn't mind spilling blood along the way, but we'll get to that in a second.
Hogwarts' golden boy and star competitor in the Triwizard Tournament was tragically used as a pawn in the Dark Lord's attempt at making a comeback in Goblet of Fire.
Hogwarts' favorite rebels famously cause a complete raucous, to rally the terrible Dolores Umbridge in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. The twins set off their complete supply of Weasleys' Wildfire Whiz-bangs fireworks, which sends the students and (secretly) the faculty wild with excitement.
Since Headmistress Umbridge is such a buzzkill all the time, Harry and the gang had to learn how to defend themselves from danger somehow in Order of the Phoenix. Enter Dumbledore's Army, which was a training ground for the Defense Against the Dark Arts. Ten-hut!
It is a classic battle between good and evil, but with magic so it's way better. After the death of Sirius Black in Order of the Phoenix, Lord Voldemort appears and the two head honchos duke it out, but Voldemort realizes he is no match for the great Dumbledore so he makes like a banana and splits.
In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Ginny takes Harry to the Room of Requirement in order to hide the Half-Blood Prince's potion book, and then she does something totally unexpected... she gives Harry a big smooch. And it was so perfect!
After poor Ron gets poisoned in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, his devoted girlfriend Lavender Brown rushes to his bedside only to be disappointed and heartbroken. As Ron comes into consciousness, the first words we all swooned with delight to hear were none other than, "Hermione, Hermione."
It is one of the saddest moments of the series in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince as Hogwarts lost a legendary wizard. Poor Harry had to watch his last parental figure fall to his death, leaving him feeling alone and unsure of his destiny.
Ladies, rejoice! There's plenty of Harry Potter's to go around, except in this case you would have to embark on a very dangerous journey to a safe house in Deathly Hallows: Part 1. If you can handle the company of angry Death Eaters and a surprise visit from Lord Voldemort, then be our guest!
In Deathly Hallows: Part 1, the destruction of Salazar Slytherin's locket-turned-Horcrux was no easy feat. The trio brilliantly stole the locket from Mrs. Umbridge, carried it around for months while trying to keep civilized, as the necklace had a negative effect on their emotions. However, Ron courageously destroyed the Horcrux whilst facing his deepest fears that the locket's energy revealed when it was opened.
Ah, the moment we have all been waiting for since the first time Ron and Hermione met at Hogwarts. After almost being killed by a tsumani in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, the two share a magnificently passionate kiss that just melts our hearts.
Hunting for a Horcrux will make you do some crazy things. This break and enter scheme in Deathly Hallows: Part 2 was one of the most elaborate plots we have seen, and it sure didn't dissapoint. We coulnd't get enough of Hermione trying her hardest to act the part of Bellatrix Lestrange.
