10 Times Luna Lovegood Was The Best Character In The Harry Potter Movies

Luna Lovegood is only in four of the eight Harry Potter movies and she was usually in the background. However, due to the source material and Evanna Lynch’s performance the character was often able to steal an entire scene.
Luna was always an outsider but never lets it bother her. On many occasions, Luna shows she is one of the best characters of the entire franchise.

‘You’re Just As Sane As I Am’

Arguably Luna’s most famous line, this immediately explains everything about her. Harry is confused when he sees the winged horses pulling the carriages, especially as the others don’t seem to see them. When Hermione points out that the carriages are pulling themselves as always, Luna quickly tries to offer words of comfort to Harry.

Supporting Harry & Introducing The Thestrals

Harry and Luna’s talk in the forest is a rare and refreshing moment of quiet amongst the chaos. Luna takes this time to fully explain The Thestrals to Harry and why he can see them. This scene also shows a different side to Luna as she reveals why she can see Thestrals.

Interest In Casting A Patronus

When Dumbledore’s Army first meets at The Hog’s Head, many of the students are more interested in prying into Harry’s past rather than joining the cause. However, Luna interrupts this prying to ask about Harry’s ability to cast a Patronus. Luna seems truly in awe when Hermione confirms Harry is able to conjure a Patronus.

Fighting In The Department Of Mysteries

At the climax of the fifth movie, Luna finds herself heading to The Ministry. Luna suggests The Thestrals when the group are struggling for a mode of transport; her ability to solve problems shows that she is a true Ravenclaw. Despite only knowing Harry and the others for a short time, Luna is happy to accompany them to save Sirius (who she’d never met at this point).

Comforting Harry After Sirius’ Death

Unsurprisingly, Sirius’ death hits Harry hard but Luna is able to offer words of wisdom in his time of need (she wasn’t sorted into Ravenclaw by accident after all). Luna isn’t upset or annoyed when her possessions are taken and is actually able to see the funny side.

Saving Harry On The Hogwarts At Express

At the beginning of The Half-Blood Prince, Luna is handing out Quibblers in another one of her unusual outfits, complete with her iconic Spectrespecs. As the students are leaving the train, Harry is attacked by Draco and left stunned under his invisibility cloak. Harry was all set for a long and uncomfortable trip back to London until Luan came to his aid.

The Lion Headdress

As Gryffindor prepares to face Slytherin on the Quidditch pitch, Luna appears in the Great Hall with a brand new accessory. In one of Luna’s most inspirational scenes, she is seen wearing a handmade Lion Headdress in support of Gryffindor which is especially sweet considering she’s a Ravenclaw. Most other Ravenclaws probably wouldn’t care about this match but Luna goes above and beyond to support her friends.

Her Unique Dance Moves

While Bill and Fleur’s wedding turns out to be quite a dramatic affair, at least Luna had a good time. Despite the later chaos and being bitten by a garden gnome, Luna is seen happily dancing with her father at the wedding.

Calling Dobby ‘Sir’

One of the most dramatic things to happen to Luna is when she is kidnaped by the Deatheaters. At some point after Bill and Fleur’s wedding, Luna is taken to Malfoy Manor and locked in the basement along with Ollivander and Griphook. Eventually, the golden trio is also brought to the Manor and Dobby turns up to rescue them.

Directing Harry To Ravenclaw’s Diadem

While Luna doesn’t get a lot of screen time in the final movie, she actually proves invaluable in the quest to defeat Voldemort. By the time Harry returns to Hogwarts, he is aware that there is a Horcrux within the school but doesn’t know what the Horcrux is. After Harry’s rather vague description to the members of Dumbeldore’s Army, it is Luna who steps forward and suggests that the Horcrux maybe Ravenclaw’s Lost Diadem.
