Was Dumbeldore an animagus?
He would definitely have been one since he was a Transfiguration teacher at Hogwarts, prior to being the Headmaster of the school!
Most of us would think that it would be The Phoenix!
Well, it seems like an impressive guess, still, had it not been Phoenix, what other options you have in mind?
I would love to get answers from you..I too have some ideas but first you will have to tell!
I think there going to be quite some interesting theories here..

In the third book, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban( which happens to be my favourite book), Remus Lupin teaches Harry how to cast a patronus in order to drive the dementors away. Harry had been attacked by a dementor while travelling on Hogwarts Express and then again while playing a match of Quidditch at Hogwarts grounds!
When a dementor moved near Harry, he started to feel numb and cold, as if all happiness was lost from the world and he could never be happy again. In addition to this, Harry heard the dreadful laughter of Voldemort and his mother pleading him not to kill Harry and kill her instead. It was the worst experience Harry had ever had.
Even after all this Harry did not want to cast Patronus because it was the only time when he could listen to his parent's voices. Driving the dementor away would mean no more bad feeling and no more listening to voices.
Harry was just an year old when his parents were killed by Lord Voldemort.
Well, love does things for reasons that reasons cannot understand!

Well, the story begins when Albus Dumbledore goes out to recruit a teacher for the post of Divination. A very odd looking lady, Sybill Trelawney applies for the job and Dumbledore visit the village of Hogsmeade to meet her. Though Dumbledore didn't really think of her as a capable teacher, he recruits her.
Sybill Trelawney gave a prophecy that changed everything in the wizarding world thereafter!
THE PROPHECY: The person who will kill the dark lord will be born to the parents who have fought him thrice. He will be born at the end of July. The dark lord himself will mark him as his equal yet he will not be aware of the powers the boy will possess. At the end, one of them will have to die because neither can live while the other survives.
While Trelawney was giving this prophecy in front of Dumbledore alone, Snape was listening to it and he was the one who informed the dark lord about this prophecy.
THE CONTROVERSY: There were two babies due to be born at the end of July to the parent who had confronted the dark lord thrice, the other child was NEVILLE LONGBOTTOM!
The dark lord himself chose his vanquisher when he decided to attack the child born at the Potter's house, Harry Potter. While attacking young Harry, lord Voldemort ave him some of his powers and was not aware of this fact. Harry escaped death, having only a scar on his forehead whereas the dark lord was reduced to a being much less than a human, barely surviving. Both Harry's parent lost their lives in order to save him from Voldemort.
Thus, we know Harry Potter as 'the chosen one'!

About him Harry Potter said,"He was the bravest man I ever knew!".
Sirius Black : Belonged to the family of Blacks. He was arrogant and pompous but against the belief that magical education should be restricted to pure bloods. He was best friends with James Potter and the Godfather of Harry Potter. He was sent to Azkaban for a crime he never committed. After 12 long years at the pridon he returned in order to see and protect Harry and show him the actual culprit behind the death of his parents, Peter Pettigrew!
He died while saving Harry and his friends at the Department of Mysteries after receiving the death curse from his cousin Bellatrix Lestrange. He was one of those persons whom Harry called after their death using the resurrection stone.
Now people, do write back telling me what do you think about these two characters. Both brave and skilled duellers!
Don't forget to send in your OWLS !

For those of you who have read the Harry Potter books, you'll be familiar to the part played by the Grey Lady. But in case, you're one of those casual fans of the series, I'll give a brief :
In later half of the final book we see that Harry Potter needs some information to complete his task of life. In this course he comes to know that the Grey Lady is the daughter of one of the founders of Hogwarts, Ravena Ravenclaw! The ghost of Grey Lady then tells him very important information which helps him in his endeavor.
"Though the role is small, its very essential to the plot",Kelly quoted.
Th Grey Lady was murdered by the Bloody Baron, who killed himself out of regret. The Bloody Baron was the resident ghost of Slytherin house and was supposed lover of the Grey Lady. These ghosts had been seen once in the first movie when Harry Potter first dines on his house table. The role was then played by Nina Young (Clash Of the Titans).
Hope you all keep up with these latest news form Harry Potter's world!

Harry Potter movies started coming out about a decade back in 2001. The first one being, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, with three little kids in the lead cast. Now, there is no part of the world where the magic of this teen aged-wizard hasn't worked wonders and children from every where seem to go mad about him and his heroics!

Recently, the cast of Harry Potter got a call from their director, David Yates, to re-shoot the last scene for the final movie that is scheduled for release in July next year, the epilogue of the book. The cast which includes Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Bonnie Wright and Tom Felton, were more than happy to return and re-shoot the scene even though they've had made emotional goodbyes.
The re-shoot was done at platform nine and three quarters, where Harry, Ron and Hermione were present to bid goodbye to their kids, who are ready to leave for Hogwarts!
The reason behind the re-shoot was that the director thought that Daniel, Emma, Ron and Tom Felton, all looked way too old than they were supposed to. He said that they were looking 'ancient' rather than middle-aged.
Don't know if the emotional stuff is going to happen again, after all they have worked together for about a decade, when they were no stars, just little children!
Even we don't wish to bid goodbye to our hero *sob sob* !!
