I think this has been said before and there are probably countless people that can draw this connection themselves, but I want to put it out here in case there is at least one person that hasn’t noticed or just appreciates that someone else in the world drew the parallel.
Notice how the title cards go from bright, to darker, to eventually bright again. I guess because the early ones were dealing more with the beginnings of Harry’s life as a wizard, so he’s discovering everything new and he’s happy and Voldemort isn’t a… I suppose an actual threat at those present moments. At least physically. But then, they begin to grow darker…
Goblet of Fire is the first with the dark, cloudy sky. A bad omen. Voldemort has, at last, been revived.
Order of the Phoenix is the darkest of them all. Voldemort begins his new rise to power, the wizarding world now knows of (or rather, breaks out of denial and corruption to realise) Voldemort’s return.
Half-Blood Prince is a grey, gloomy, sky with cloud typical of the ones on a rainy day. Of course, no need to explain the reason with this. But there is a bit of light trying to peek through the clouds. Some hope is left.
Deathly Hallows shows the sun piercing through the clouds, it’s faint, but it’s more light than before. A new day has dawned in the aftermath of the trauma, war, and death. Harry’s life can begin anew with hope and peace.
