OK, I think your confused, because it was the Queen that took Ron not the Bishop? or I'm I wrong in that?

Actually it is the Queen that takes him, not the Bishop. (Trust me, I know...I have read the book about 80 times, and I've seen the film twice).

It's not a bishop, it's a queen. The move was done specifically to get said queen out of the way so that the bishop Harry was substituting for could check-mate the white king.

Hello, I thought that the Queen was the one that took Ron. I don't know anything about chess, but Ron directly said, "After I make my move, the queen will take me" which means that according to you, the queen can move any way.

As everyone says so far, it was indeed the queen which took Ron. It may look like a bishop cause the pieces are a bit archaic but it is really a queen.

Just a comment on GV's comment, if you pay attention, Harry walked from black square to black square thus moving diagonally. I just finished watching the movie, trust me, I watched where he was walking. Not once did he go onto a white square.

Maybe you just got confused because the queen looks a lot like a man, lol.

I actually have a Harry Potter chess set, and that was indeed a queen. The ones that have two fingers held up are the bishops.

To GV: Harry DID move diagonally to check the king. Watch it again.

Maybe that move was correct, but remember that Harry was a bishop, yet he took a few steps FORWARD to check the king. Bishops can only move diagonally.
