This week I watched and live-tweeted the fourth film in the series, Goblet of Fire.

A month ago I hadn't seen a Harry Potter film. Now I'm about to watch Goblet of Fire for the first time. Here we go! #finallywatchingHP

Sure, I'll write him a letter. And put his name right on the front. It's not as if he's a fugitive or anything.

Turns out Hogwarts is playing host to the Triwizard Tournament this year.

Warner Bros.

Harry claims his prize, a golden egg, which contains a clue to the second round of the tournament.

Warner Bros.
