As reported many times previously, the UK is set to see the release of the “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” DVD in a few days on November 12. This is Nottingham has a preview article today regarding this DVD, and notes that among the extras will be “DVD-ROM content including timeline and ‘link’ to a sneak peak [sic] of Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince.”

At this point we do not know what is to be contained in this sneak peek, if there will new footage of the sixth Harry Potter film or comments from the crew or cast. Any lucky UK resident that can give us details on this “Half-Blood Prince” sneak, please send them in! Also, we believe that many of the press interviews conducted last weekend for the preview of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix DVD will be released this weekend, so stay tuned!

On another related note, thanks to Harry Latino for letting us know they were able to capture more of the OotP DVD menus and such (including screencaps of the behind the scenes special on the DVD hosted by Natalia Tena (Tonks). You can see these (spoiler caution) here.

Finally, there is a new article online about actress Charlotte Hunter, who is Emma Watson’s double in the Harry Potter films, and she speaks briefly about being in OotP,as well as returning for “Half-Blood Prince.” She says:

“Because the rules governing children’s working hours are so strict it means that whenever Daniel (Radcliffe), Emma (Watson) or Rupert (Grint) are on set they want to use them – so it’s all close ups and shots where you can see their faces.

“When they are done it’s back to the school work and my fellow doubles and I are used for long shots and cut aways. If you see Hermoine’s legs running along somewhere or a pair of hands picking up a wand or a quill then they are probably mine.”

What could we possibly get a sneak peek of at this time, a scene or two? Hagrid’s hut maybe?

LillyPotter88- We better get these extras on the US 2disc. In fact, we should get more for patiently waiting an extra month.

yah, tell me about it!!!! I hope it’s a scene or two that would be cool

Avatar Image says:

bahahaha, the timeline. so ridiculous. they’re serious about this november release in the uk, and december release in the states, eh? pffft, WB lately…

Avatar Image says:

We also better get all the deleted scenes including the one with Bella dueling Sirius and not to mention the interviews with Alan Rickman, Daniel Radcliffe and Gary Oldman that they mentioned earlier this month or last. why would they have us buy the set at five just to get those? It would be so unfair!!!

P.S. I forgot to mention I’m getting really irritated that they arnt mentioning anymore casting especially new characters what are they playing at I know they want to build up suspicion but enough already they only have 15 people “confirmed”.

Someone at IMDb (manidanielrad) alledgedly has the dvd and says the HBP sneek peek ‘is a photo of the back of Harry and Dumbledore standing in front of a door with a dead snake nailed to the door.. the photo is very green and dark and it says

“Hemliite ravoolé dë hanng”

which means¨

“some secrets are hard to find” ‘

Avatar Image says:

Please confirm the HBP cast soon WB! This is getting ridiculous!!! I want to know who’s playing Narcissa :/

Avatar Image says:

i agree with all the people who want to find out about the HBP cast! Its so unfair! For heavens sake, tell us whos playing who! I also heard on wikipedia.org that two twins (taylor triphook and katie head) who have been noted as redheads, have apparently been cast. Oh and theyre 11 years old. Possibly part of the weasley clan???

Avatar Image says:

As do I. and they need alot of other new characters as well so they better not just have the others speak the lines for them lets actually see the new characters for a change!

Avatar Image says:

wow. demanding fans. have a little patience! warner brothers don’t owe the fans anything!!

Avatar Image says:

by the way, i was pretty much just kidding about that—sarcasm doesn’t really come through in typing, i spose…

Avatar Image says:

perhaps Arthur and Molly Weasley when they were kids…they might be random background details for whenever Harry and the Dumblemeister go into the pensieve…

Just a thought.

Amy- Was that just a rumor that Naomi Watts would be playing Narcissa? I think she might be a bit too pretty for the part. Maybe if they plastered allot of makeup.

I always pictured Mrs Malfoy as one of those Muppet like-overly augmented plastic surgery addicts like Joan Rivers.

Avatar Image says:

Naomie Watts still possibly is Narcissa Malfoy her so called rep “denied it” like that means alot to us- if you have ever read a magazine 95% of actor reps deny comments about their clients. The second runner up is Alison Doody.

For some reason I thought they’d have a sneak preview of HBP on the US DVD too. Well, that’s a bit of a downer. Thank goodness for YouTube!

And, I’m really wondering why they need doubles to do silly things? Is it all just extensive precautions for the actors’ safety? I remember watching the GoF DVD extras and the stunt-Cedric had to be helped up off the ground by Daniel. Why?? Do the doubles have nicer-looking hands or legs or something?

There was a preview for HPHBP on my local NBC channel last night. It was an interview with Emma Watson. Here is a transcript of the interview:

“In this next one, there is an emphasis on the relationship between Hermione and Ron.” “And I think that this next one will be more comic.” “I think that this last one was a lot darker and a lot heavier and this one will be funnier and more light-hearted.”

She appeared to be sitting in Dumbledore’s Office.

The End.

Will you put this in the article please? Thanks Matt91

I don’t have patience and want to know the castings too. Who’s playing Slughorn or Greyback what’s going on. Anyway I want to see what’s going on the extras in HBP.
