The wizarding community has shunned Harry Potter and Hogwarts’ Headmaster, Albus Dumbledore, who claim that Lord Voldemort has regained a body and has been restored to full power. They are instead influenced by the propaganda of The Daily Prophet and the intentional ignorance of the Minister of Magic, Cornelius Fudge. Fudge appoints a new Hogwarts Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher, Dolores Umbridge, who refuses to allow them to discuss the return of Voldemort. In defiance, the students create Dumbledore's Army, with Harry as teacher to prepare his schoolmates in case a battle with Voldemort ensues.
