When Harry Potter’s name emerges from the Goblet of Fire, he becomes a competitor in a grueling battle for glory among three wizarding schools – the Triwizard Tournament. But since Harry never submitted his name for the Tournament, who did? Now Harry must confront a deadly dragon, fierce water demons and an enchanted maze only to find himself in the cruel grasp of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. In this fourth film adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, everything changes as Harry, Ron and Hermione leave childhood forever and take on challenges greater than anything they could have imagined.

Trivia
  • Mike Newell decided against the studio's original idea of adapting the extremely long book into two separate films to be released several months apart, figuring that he could cut enough of the book's bulky subplots to make a workable film. It was Alfonso Cuarón, the director of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) who convinced him.
  • A digital "spot removing" technique (which had previously been used for such TV shows as Desperate Housewives (2004)) was applied in post-production to clear up some of the more severe teen skin problems since make-up tested poorly for close-up shots in particular.
  • According to rumors that circulated the Internet, both Rowan Atkinson and John Malkovich were considered for the role of Lord Voldemort. Both rumors were proven to be untrue.
  • Mike Newell only received $1 million to direct (whereas Chris Columbus received $10 million plus a percentage of the gross to direct Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001).
  • Features the largest underwater set ever constructed. It has the capacity of up to 500,000 liters of water.
  • Ray Winstone and Billy Connolly were considered for the role of Mad-Eye Moody.
  • Rosamund Pike was the first choice for the role of Rita Skeeter but declined.
  • Daniel Radcliffe suffered two ear infections following the underwater filming.
  • The newspaper headline "Harry Potter and the Triwizard Tournament" was considered as the title of the fourth book.
  • While filming his scenes as Professor Dumbledore, Michael Gambon wore street clothes under his flimsy costume.
