Luna first appears in the series when she meets Harry Potter, Neville Longbottom, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley. Hermione introduces them to her, calling her "Looney Lovegood" before stopping herself and says its Luna Lovegood. She expresses hope that there is pudding at the school-year opening feast and is seen enjoying some at Ravenclaw table.

Later, Harry approaches Luna as she feeds the Thestrals at the grouds. She and Harry can see them since both of them witnessed a death. Harry asks her what she saw, and Luna tells him she witnessed her mother's from Pandora's  own spells. During their conversation, Luna believed in Harry's claims that Voldemort had returned. She also becomes a member of Dumbledore's Army, learning to defend herself against dark arts, taught by Harry.

Luna later accompanies her friends to the Department of Mysteries after Harry witnessed visions of his godfather tortured by Voldemort. During the battle, Sirius is killed by Bellatrix Lestrange.

At the end of the school year, Luna gives Harry her condolences at the loss of his godfather and found her shoes hanging from a archway in the hallway.
