Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 Walkthrough

Table of Contents

  • Order of the Phoenix
  • Half-Blood Prince
  • Deathly Hallows
  • Magic is Might

    1. Harry is teamed up with Ron, and they’re both disguised. Run right to find a large painting hanging from the wall. Blast the two metallic weights and the painting will fall to reveal a large red wall. Use red magic.
    2. Construct the blocks that pop out, then use magic on the little device you magically construct. When it stands and turns to look at the wizards, use magic again to chase everyone off, allowing you to move into the background area.
    3. In the background area, look on the left wall for a bright lamp. Use Ron’s Deluminator to collect the light, then use it on the lamp just left of the doorway. Construct the bricks that spill out, and hold down the magic button until the door opens.
    4. With the door open, you’re free to go inside! To get into the locked cupboard, inside the office, you’ll need two purple keys. To find the first, use magic on the red and white shield with crossed swords. Smash the desk for the second key.
    5. Back outside the door, the gate to your right will open. Take off through the gate, and run all the way right. At the end, you’ll find a water container. Fill it up, then use magic to move it over the planter just left of the window. A plant will grow fast! Now use magic on the plant, moving it over to the purple Lego piece on the window itself.
    6. The guard will open the gate to your right, allowing you to continue on. Run right then run into the elevator room ahead. Inside, use orange magic to smash the metal lock on the elevator, then construct the hopping pieces to fix the tube.
    7. With the tube fixed, use Ron’s pet to run inside and knock down more Lego bricks. Construct the bricks and an elevator will come down. Run inside, it’ll take you to a cutscene.
    8. As the scene ends, you’ll appear in the courtroom. Fight off the magical officers until a heart meter appears at the top of the screen. She’ll try to throw three items at you, dodge the first two, then catch the third and throw it back!
    9. More security guards will appear. Defeat them, and the boss will throw four items at you this time. Wait until she throws three, then throw the fourth back. Hit her again, and you’ll have to enter another magical duel. Remember to use your shield and switch to match colors with your opponent!
    10. After the duel, the boss will try to throw five things. Dodge until she has one left, then throw it back with magic!
    11. Now you’ll have to duel the boss yourself! Don’t forget your magic works through your shields, but your opponent will hide as long as you hide. When you win the fight, you’ll appear in a new hallway. Just run!
    12. That completes the stage! Appearing back near Hogwarts, have Hermione use the pink baseplate. Construct the hopping bricks that appear near the wall of rocks into a teleportation pad that Harry can use to start the next stage.

    Frustrated

    On November 22, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    This is probably the least helpful walkthrough I’ve ever read. I was unable to find the 3rd horse and after reading this garbage, I was even MORE frustrated. I went to youtube and found a walkthrough. I then came BACK to this site and I see where you’re missing information.

    VERY BAD WALKTHROUGH.

    Kevin Thielenhaus

    On November 22, 2011 at 10:02 pm

    How do I get the yellow spell for Harry to lift the cloud over the Professors head?

    u say to make the objects spin (in veiled threat) but not how and i have tried everything help!

    Kevin Thielenhaus

    On December 7, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    Hey Confused,

    We apologize for the confusion! Here’s how you spin-up a thrown Lego Brick.

    When a brick is thrown at your character, hit the magic button. Simply hold that button down and press the movement stick in the direction you want to throw the break. Either release the magic button to throw the bricks, or just keep spinning them until they’re automatically thrown.

    I hope that helps, and goodluck!

    I’m in “Snape’s Tears”, and I need Ron to open the Weasley box near the Giant that is distracted with music… but he just has his hands over his face and wont do anything! What do I do? I’ve tried letting him die so he’s refreshed, but he just comes back the same way and I can’t get him to do anything! Help?

    Ok, I really need help. I am on year six, Out of Retirement in Dumbledore’s flashback scene. I’m trying to get Dumbledore on the second floor, but when he is going up the elevator, he just gets destroyed for some reason. Is my game broken or something?

    Jess

    On December 18, 2011 at 4:17 am

    I’m with Sabrina. I’m having issues throwing pumpkins at Death during the Three Brothers scene. I was hoping the walkthrough would help me with that, but it did.

    Not So Merry

    On December 20, 2011 at 1:04 pm

    Umm, I can’t get past the boss fight in Not So Merry Christmas. My Wingardiam Leviosa spell NEVER stops the glowing purple items Bellatrix keeps throwing at me. This is frustrating and there really isn’t any other way to progress in the game otherwise. Is there any other way to end the battle?

    Hey guys. I got a real hassle with the level “Magic is Might”; the Wall of Dementors in the “Run for the Exit” sequence keep killing me just before I can nab the Slytherin section of the House Crest. Are there any tips or suggestions you can throw my way? It’s literally the last piece I need to collect all the House Crests.

    On December 29, 2011 at 1:52 pm

    I am stucj on A Veiled THreat. I can only get the legos to levitate and not spin. How do you spin and throw to release your friends. Been stuck on this scene for awhile and even tried restarting.

    E

    On December 29, 2011 at 3:48 pm

    to throw things om xbox360: hold B, then move the joystick you walk with as if you were moving forwards. then let go and it will fly and hit its target.
    to use dark magic: wait untill u get for example Bellatrix, tom riddle, buy them at madam malkins and pick them in free play.

    Snape

    On December 29, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    Hi I thought this walkthrough was very helpful, you should do a character token walkthrough to tell everyone what characters there are and where to find them I woul find that helpful also you should tell where gold and red bricks are. If you did that Everyone could finish the game to 100%. Thank You very much

    Hi . I’m on the last part of deathly hallows part 1 & I cantknok over the bookcase to get the key !!

    carrie

    On December 30, 2011 at 11:02 am

    For the PS3 guys, when spinning the objects at the bad guys, be sure you’re using the “O” button instead of the “[]” button. I always use the square button for magic but it didn’t work on spinning and was rather frustrating.

    LogansMommy0224

    On December 30, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    I have the same problem as Lysis. I’m in the dungeons in the DOBBY! level and need the key but I don’t know how to “roll” into the bookcase to get it like the walkthrough says. I tried the cart thing but I can’t drive it or even push it. I even tried to use Pigwidgeon (Ron’s spazzy owl to knock it down). Nothing. How do I get the key down? I’m playing on a Wii. Thanks. Also on another walkthrough I read, it talked about trophies/achievements; are those for the Wii version of the game too or just the PS3 version?

    Adam

    On December 31, 2011 at 9:35 am

    Hi. I’m not actually stuck on a level, but could anybody please tell me where can I find a character to unlock that can use dark magic? A lot of the stuff in levels can’t be unlocked without dark magic, so if anybody knows where to find a character, where exactly can I find it around Hogwarts grounds, or if in a level, where exactly in the level??
    Sorry for long comment

    Michelle

    On December 31, 2011 at 10:35 am

    I’m stuck trying to get the green crest piece on Dumbledore’s Army. I see it in the window of the tea shop but I’m not sure how to open the door.

    Miles

    On December 31, 2011 at 3:44 pm

    For the Lovegood’s Lunacy thingy for throwing te pumpkins you must guide the pumpkin to the left. I was confused too. Just hold circle to levitate it and tilt the analog to the left and wait until it spins and strikes death. Do that three times. Adam when you finish the very last level you receive Bellatrix Lestrange. Specifically after you duel her. Michelle I’m stuck on that too. I can’t figure it out as well.

    Sabrina

    On December 31, 2011 at 8:15 pm

    You have to use a dark character to take control of the person inside the shop to get the crest Michelle and Miles.

    I’m stuck on the level “Gringotts break in” but It’s not listed on your menu also on my game deathly hallow is spilt in 2 (deathly hallows part 1 and 2). I’ve got the game for the ds so maybe it’s different to yours?

    In Dark Times at the Ministry of Magic there is a workman standing next to the coffee cart with a symbol over his head. Does anyone know what he needs?

    On year 6- Out of retirement. Dumbledore keeps on dying while trying to go up the elevator in his memory sequence. How do i get past this

    Dan

    On January 5, 2012 at 3:28 pm

    I have the same problem as David in “MAGIC IS MIGHT”. I do not seem tro be able to move fast enough to grab the Slytherin Crest before the Dementors frost cloud touches me and Idie. Is there any trick that anyone knows or do I have to jut move faster. It’s flustrating because you have to play through the whole level each time you get killed because the game does not let you return to the ststue.

    Michelle

    On January 6, 2012 at 11:42 am

    this website is very helpful. I’m also stuck on Just Desserts. Can’t give the mug to Slughorn. Hermione has the mug, shouldn’t that work? I’ve tried everything, nothing is working!!!!!

    Michelle

    On January 6, 2012 at 11:44 am

    To Corrine-if you are playing alone, be the woman with the key. Dumbledore will go in the elevator and then you, as the woman, unlock the elevator. Then be Dumbledore again. That way he doesn’t get squashed by the elevator.

    Amanda

    On January 6, 2012 at 2:19 pm

    PLEASE HELP! I have the PC version, I am stuck in A Veiled Threat. I can pick up the objects but I can’t get them to spin or throw. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Draphin

    On January 8, 2012 at 2:56 pm

    Jay I figured out the workman in the first level “Dark Times at the Ministry of Magic” In The Ministry of Magic go to this workman as a dark Character. and go to your Yellow Spell. it is not focus on dark characters it is the Imperius Curse. use it on the Crew man and he will blow up the Coffee Machine. Next rebuild it into a cleaner and ride it around all the Gray spots on the floor. this will give you studs nothing else so it is not necessary for 100% but good if you really want to do everything.

    Ange

    On January 10, 2012 at 5:55 am

    How do I switch between spells on the Wii version? I have tried C,1 and 2 Buttons but no luck. Also you mentioned that you could drink from the cauldrons, how?

    To David and Dan,

    On January 11, 2012 at 2:19 pm

    This is getting silly now! I have been on “A Veiled Threat” for over an hour and looked up every walkthrough and video on YouTube there is and there is not one solution to the “throwing objects” problem. I (also) can pick up the objects for a few seconds but they will not spin and no matter what button I press or joystick (Xbox) I waggle it just falls to the floor in about a second. Is there ANYONE in the universe that can give a DETAILED explanation to what the 100s of people who’ve asked the same question are doing wrong or what we should be doing?! Not just pick it up with magic then move the joystick because IT SIMPLY DOESN’T WORK!

    Jennifer

    On January 11, 2012 at 8:22 pm

    THANK YOU for explaining the pumpkin throwing in the Book 7 part 1. I was stuck on it forever, went to two walkthroughs and this was the only one who explained how to do it, i was aiming up and to the left, just aim straight left. was so frustrated!!!! THANK YOU, You WL the pumpkins and when you spin to throw, aim straight left, not up at all. Release either magic of joystick and goes right to death. stuck for over an hour on this, just passed thank you!

    Monny

    On January 12, 2012 at 2:22 am

    This is for the Wii. For people having trouble throwing ojects press and hold Z when an object it thrown at you and it should get held in the air, the push the control stick in the direction you want to throw and the obect should start spinning. When you want to throw the object release the Z button and the object should fly into your target.

    Monny

    On January 12, 2012 at 2:31 am

    This is for the Wii. I have finished everything but i am missing one Harry character token. I have looked in all the areas but i can’t find it, even with the character token detector on. Is there something special that i have to do to get it? it’s the last thing i need to get 100%.

    Christian

    On January 14, 2012 at 5:44 am

    Ok so I’m playing the Wii version of the came and in “Just Desserts” there is a cloud over Professor Slughorn’s head and since we haven’t learned that spell yet cuz Umbridge took it away I need to get it down. Harry has the beer and I just can’t give it to Slughorn. HELP MEE!!!

    Corrie

    On January 15, 2012 at 9:54 am

    on Felix Felicis: to get the cauldron — there is a “mole” sticking out of a hole to the left of the cauldron. target him and press x he will move around to the other “dirt” holes. Keep blowing him up and he eventually moves the where the cauldron is and pushes off so you can turn it over. This is for the Xbox 360.

    I am on PS3 – pumpkin throwing at Death in 3 Brothers part of Lovegoods Lunacy – aim left works. Restarted level 4 times to no avail then looked at these comments and saw the work around. Now, I can’t get out of the dungeon. How does one move the wooden Lego cabinet to knock the key off?

    On January 20, 2012 at 2:54 pm

    You roll into the cabinet its either the x button or b button

    Alex

    On January 23, 2012 at 7:51 pm

    So can someone with the Wii version please explain how to roll into the cabinet in DOBBY! to get the key down? all the XBOX/PS3 explanations are not exactly helpful for us.

    Alex

    On January 23, 2012 at 8:12 pm

    OK! Figured it out on Wii. To roll into the cabinet in DOBBY! just walk up to it and hit B while going forward.

    All- am stuck on “snape’s tears”– Im able to use the catapult the first time, but afterwards– there’s no rock, no ammo, nuttin’ to use in the catapult. I’ve restarted the section, played a new game– there simply isn’t anything to put into this catapult after the first shot. Am I missing something simple? I’ve tried to target magic on every inch of my screen and theres nothing even to highlight? It’s almost like I got a broken game… super frustrating.

    For #18, there is an additional Dementor located (not sure if this has been posted yet). In front of the symbols is this funny looking fireplace blower that Luna needs to stand on top of, and it inflates the fourth dementor (fourth I think). Hope that helps!

    @Gonqueasel and others that are having trouble with giving slughorn his beer…aim your wii remote at the cloud above his head to break the cloud first to reveal the picture of the beer. (this may take a couple of tries). once all 3 cups have been retrieved from the room, fill the last cup and bring it to slughorn. hit z when standing in front of him. hope this helps…i was super frustrated with this level as well-i had to mute it b/c of that stupid laughing!

    P.S. for the washing machine section, I found the trick was using Arthur and ‘Z’ for him to fix the two machines as there is no prompts for you to do so. Hence why running around for a few minutes, not knowing what to do. Hope that helps!

    Greetings, in correction to step #20 as per the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ck7V8jtKlkY, you need to throw back at him the first object (not the third) which is a drumstick of some sort, and then the cake after. Hope this helps as I was relentlessly trying the third object he was spinning at me without victory. Thanks! Hope this helps!

    I have the Wii. I have tried and tried to throw the first pumpkin in Lovegood’s Lunacy, to no avail. I have followed everything that everybody has suggested, pointed straight to the LEFT, not up at all, but in my game, Wingardium Leviosa does not hold long enough to even spin the stupid pumpkin. It lifts, it moves the pumpkin a bit to the left, and drops. Then the WL doesn’t work at all until I use brother 1 or 2 to wand-shoot the pumpkin back to the right and try again.

    I have already contacted WB about this, and they had no solution. I sent back my game, waiting three freaking months for a replacement, only to find the same glitch exists in exactly the same spot in the replacement game. Is there anybody else out there who absolutely cannot get past this point? It is driving me mad.

    I’m at the very end of Out of Retirement. I’m trying to cast the Focus spell on the cloud over student’s head to get the green key and unlock the next level. Harry’s yellow spell will target the cloud but when cast, won’t dispel the cloud like it has in the past on other cloud-headed characters.

    I did smash the rocks and find the ladle first but that hasn’t mattered in the past (if I find the object before dispelling the cloud).

    How can I get the yellow spell to work when I target the cloud?

    I am stuck with the 3 Brothers. Brother 3 needs to throw 3 pumpkins to Death to scare him away. I can only get 1 pumpkin to light up. I grab it and it spins then it falls to the ground. There is NO throwing the pumpkin it just kind of falls to the ground. I have been stuck on this scene all day & cant get any further.

    Kevin Thielenhaus

    On January 2, 2013 at 10:51 am

    @Frustrated,

    This is actually a little tricky, but I think I’ve found a solution. While the pumpkins spin in the air, push and hold left to send the pumpkins flying. To make the pumpkins rise up, either use Z (Wii-Version) or B (Xbox-Version) or, I believe Circle (PS3-Version). When they rise up and spin around, hold your movement stick toward Death to lock-on to him. Getting it just right can be tricky.

    I’ve been trying to get past death the second time in Lovegood’s Lunacy, but some reason the pumpkins won’t ever hit him!! I’m on the Wii system, and I can pick up the pumpkin and make it spin but for some reason it won’t even get near him…. I’m so beyond frustrated grrr!!! Any advice??

    I have the PC version and I’m on #33 and #34 and REALLY NEED HELP on what to do because Dumbledore keeps dying going up in the lift as the gal raises him up… I have tried everything on what to do… distiroed stuff, made him go clear in back of the lift, in the middle, but he STILL gets killed… PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!

    Kevin Thielenhaus

    On January 23, 2013 at 9:35 am

    @anikole,

    Hmm! How weird, is Dumbledore dying from anything on screen, or is it just happening when the lift is raised? That’s definitely not supposed to happen.

    Try playing only as Ms. Cole, and using magic to lift up the platform instead of playing as Dumbledore. Have you tried only playing as Ms. Cole for this section? The AI Dumbledore should automatically step onto the lift, then get off once it’s been fully raised up. He might even automatically jump off and open the way forward, or at least get somewhere so you can easily switch back.

    I don’t know if that will work, let us know! Goodluck!

    Kevin Thielenhaus

    On January 24, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    @Joe,

    To make minifigs with question marks work, you’ll need someone with a yellow spell. Hit them with a yellow spell, and they’ll give you things. It’s as simple as that! Not all of these guys are required to finish the game though, some might be optional on your first playthrough.

    On May 25, 2013 at 6:27 pm

    ANYONE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH A VEILED THREAT!

    In order to throw the objects at the death eaters, you need to push the B button to get the objects in the air and the up or down keys to spin them and they should get thrown automatically! I just finished hitting all the death eaters and it does work!

    I was given Lego HP Years 5-7 but I never played years 1-4. In Order of the Pheonix, the cauldron that is in the hallway that is supposed to be strength is closed and I can’t open it. Playing on a Wii? Spent 4 hours tonight playing twice to see what I did wrong. The second time was following the walk thru.

    Did I have to play years 1-4 first?!

    Kevin Thielenhaus

    On June 10, 2013 at 2:34 pm

    @WiiNewbieLegoPotter,

    Nope, you don’t need to have played 1-4 first to finish 5-7. But, this guide is all for the PS3/360/PC version, and doesn’t go into detail how to complete some of the Wii-specific challenges.

    Like most challenges in the game, you might be missing something in the room. Try destroying whatever you can to discover hopping bricks or ingredients. If you’re still having problems, could you explain exactly what you’re missing?

    Thanks for the comment, and goodluck!

    I’m a bit confused, on Felix Felicus you said to scare away some vines, but the only vines I can see are ones that need Dark Magic.

    Do you need Dark Magic or can I not see the vines?

    Kevin Thielenhaus

    On September 13, 2013 at 3:24 pm

    @J.C.T

    As, I see! The plants on the right — ignore those, you only need to free the hopping bricks held down by the green vines next to the dead spider. Destroy all the destructable LEGO plants in the area and they’ll go away, I believe. It might only take attacking the green vines, too.

Since I’ve retired, trying to complete this level is becoming an obsession.

    Some of the puzzles can be really tricky. Don’t forget to place the beer in the keg to fill it up first, then you can give it to Slughorn.

    Hey there.

    I’m struggling to go up the lift in the out of retirement flash back scene with Dumbledore and Mrs Cole. Ive done what the walkthrough says and watched a video doing the same thing. But by me Dumbledore keeps dying. I’ve done it several ways but he just keeps dying. He keeps going in the middle and I’ve read that he must be at the back but he doesn’t stay there. I don’t know if it is a glitch in the game or must I just keep trying. I love playing the game but can’t go any further.
