There is new footage from the upcoming “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” film included on the US Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix DVD. Readers will recall that when the UK saw the release last month, there were two special sneak peeks at the sixth Harry Potter film included via the DVD; today there is new video with the sneak peek, including some fantastic shots of Draco (Tom Felton) cursing Harry on the train, and Harry and Ginny, the interior of Slughorn’s home, and even dialog between Professor Dumbledore and Harry discussing Horcruxes (yes really!). Also new are various interviews conducted recently at the DVD launch in London, England, including new quotes from actress Emma Watson (Hermione), Matt Lewis (Neville), Rupert Grint (Ron) a hilarious quote from Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) discussing the Ron/Lavender snogging scenes, as well as quotes from producer David Heyman and HBP director David Yates. To watch (SPOILERS AHOY) click here via our galleries.

Many thanks lark and flaquita

Woohoo! Harry and Ginny kissing! Well, nearly … And it looks like a scene they’ve added that wasn’t in the book. That’s good, though – in a movie they’ll need to show all the H/G interaction that the book only hinted at.

OMG!!! Harry and Ginny almost kissing!!!

OMG!! This is just fantastic!!! Harry/Dumbledore, Draco, Ginny OMG OMG!!! LOOKS AMAZING!! Thanks Sue!!

this looks awesum.

Avatar Image says:

Yeah, I just about peed my pants when I heard Gambon talking about horcruxes!

Avatar Image says:

is this on the DVD?

Avatar Image says:

No, it’s on the official site, but you need the US DVD to access it.

Avatar Image says:

HARRY AND GINNY! After all these years there they are! squees like crazy Beautiful, just beautiful.

And yes, horcruxes! I want this movie now!

Avatar Image says:

so wait, the Uk dvd has the first footage we saw and the US Dvd has this one?

Avatar Image says:

HOW EXCITING OMFG YAY!

Is it only on the US DVD?

Avatar Image says:

oh, could someone please tell, where exactly this footage is? on which disk? I got 2 bonus disks with my OOTP yesterday (yep, yesterday), but didn’t see this. Help, pretty please?

Avatar Image says:

This may be a dumb question, but does this work with each version of this movie? I just bought the two-disc special edition this morning. I’m at work, with no sound on this computer or access to Youtube. I know by the time i get home this will be taken off youtube, so I just want to make sure this will work for me.

Avatar Image says:

I too got the 2 disc special set- hopefully it will be at my house by the time I get home from work (according to DHL tracking, it is out for delivery!). Wow this new HBP footage has me so pumped!

Avatar Image says:

Love seeing Harry and Ginny so close to almost kissing! What a treat. Thanks WB for the awesome christmas pressy!

Avatar Image says:

Please don’t get me wrong dear US Potter friends, I am thrilled for all of you – but I find myself now cheated out of my money! Here I ran to the store last month, buying the OotP DVD – happily watching the extras on my PC – thinking how lucky we were in Europe!!!! And now we have to learn that our copy is not identical with the American one :-( This is absolutely outrageous….....!!! Had I known this, I would of waited and ordered it by Amazon.com, paid the expensive (!) shipping costs to Europe – but at least been content…Please folks, will you be so nice and put those scenes, interviews somehow ONLINE – so we here in Europe can see them also…THANK YOU ALL

Avatar Image says:

Well,after hearing what I just heard and seeing what I just saw—- I think this film IS going to ROCK!

Avatar Image says:

They are online. Check youtube.

Avatar Image says:

Oh my goodness! Leaky.. you just made my day! Those H/G moments were so sweet.

But I have to agree with a previous poster… the UK (and I suspect the other dvds realised last month) and US DvDs are not the same.. we got less extra features, and it’s simply not fair.

Avatar Image says:

Dawn—I’m in the US and I do not think it is fair either. They should all be the same,the world over.

Avatar Image says:

I knew I could count on you – Potter fans rock :-) thanks for the tip Bill.

Avatar Image says:

squee!!

Avatar Image says:

Harry and Ginny almost kissing!!! :)

::dead::

Avatar Image says:

Jeannine – That’s nice that you think so. HP is loved universally the world over. Therefore all HP fans should be entitled to the same features. The normal UK 2 disc version, is poor. But appartently the HD and Blu-ray dvds have MORE features… why? It’s non-sensical.

Anyway, I’m glad you guys in the US have your DvDs now. The wait is over.

Avatar Image says:

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAW OMG!!! I WANT THE MOVIE NOW! I can’t wait, It’s gonna be awesome; I really want to see it. It’s coming soon!

Avatar Image says:

Is there something going on between Apple and Time Warner. First, HP7 still isn’t available on iTunes. Now the Disk case clearly states that the digital version isn’t compatible with Mac’s or iPod. Guess I’ll have to find a hacked copy

Avatar Image says:

I agree with Jeannine (and funny enough she agreed with me in another post haha)- I am in the US and all the dvds should be the same, and released at the same time. The last thing that this world needs is more animosity, and certainly not Potter-related animosity! Isn’t that one of the main messages in the Harry Potter epic? I suppose corporate didn’t read the story.. :-)

Avatar Image says:

Incredible. A cool early Christmas present.

Avatar Image says:

This was awesome to see! I’m soooooo antsy now for the next one to be released!

Avatar Image says:

I wouldn’t feel too left out Kevin. It’s not just the ipd/apple.

I don’t know anyone who’s been able to get the portable version to work.

Have any of you guys been able to get the portable file to work? On what and how?

Avatar Image says:

It’s looking amazing!

Avatar Image says:

AWESOME! Ok, now I’m all pumped up… but I can’t be, I have to do a goddamn essay in 4 hrs! Anyway, WOOT for Ginny/Harry …. but what really got me was that we will have that Draco scene in the train! Yay! :)

Avatar Image says:

I really like Draco’s hair and look. Very Death Eater Nouveau.

It’ll be excellent to see him burst into tears. [evil laugh]

Avatar Image says:

this sounds brilliant im really looking forward to the film :)!! so do u have to have te us version of the dvd.???. i would love too see all of this but i live in the UK :( x xx

Avatar Image says:

I have a Mac too Kevin, so I feel your pain. It’s probably easier to release a PC only format than to release a Universal one. Besides places like Blockbuster and Netflix do the same thing, and they’re only for the PC. I think the more Apple computers there are in the world, the more likely everything will be universal one day.

As for different versions having different additional features, I think it’s a bit crazy too. I have no problem with the two-disc edition having more features than the one-disc, that is expected. But for the HD and Blu-ray to be different, is strange. You’re just asking for things to land on youtube.

Avatar Image says:

LOL Jupe! I agree with what you’ve said. But I have a feeling that I’ll get such a crush on Tom in this movie that when that moment comes, I just might burst into tears with him. {giggles}

Avatar Image says:

wow! omg thanks for posting this !! AMAZING!! How good does the next film look?!?

Avatar Image says:

omg! Quidditch is back! The uniforms look okay, too much padding for Harry’s since he a seeker, and seekers need to be flexable as possible to catch the snitch. Draco, look really nice with his hair like that, better than the bowl cut. But I like it when his hair was slick back, since it look more like his father and more Dracoish. Alas, better than the dang bowl cut.

Avatar Image says:

I hate that DVD’s aren’t the same world over. My sis sent one to my mom from Australia and it won’t work because we do not have “international” dvd players. It is really dumb.

I do have a question. Emma said that it was great to be back. I thought she didn’t start filming for another week?

Avatar Image says:

YES YES YES YES YES OMG OMGOMG ADSF;KLADSF <33333

Avatar Image says:

LoL. Good point Nicci about Emma. Maybe she was in for a reading or costume fitting that day.

Avatar Image says:

omg they keep the train scene! that was one of my favorites! but…

has a tantrum

What have they done to Draco’s hair

too short. it’s wierd, I want it feathery! but it is paler than usual!

but he’s wearing a suit? huh? huuuuuuuuh? Draco is into his haute coture isn’t he? o_O

Draco is in a big cabin rather than the usual small ones? and the are people behind him rather than him and Harry alone! I want them Alone dangit! cries

BRING ON THE BATHROOM CRYING SCENE!

Yayz XD

Avatar Image says:

Folks, Last month, we in the U.S. were the ones crying because we had to wait A WHOLE MONTH! I guess this is just WB’s way to even things up! You get it early…we get more. Or at least, I will. I have to wait for Christmas!

Avatar Image says:

... Hang on – can’t us UK’s access the same footage from the WB website using our disks too? or not?

Avatar Image says:

Oh My GOTH!!!! another haircut Draco in this case.

Avatar Image says:

Minnie, I am fairly sure that what we saw was a run-through. In the final cut of the scene it will just be Harry and Draco.

Avatar Image says:

Well hear is a different way to look at it. The UK and others got the DVD a month ago with a few early shots of HBP. Then WB releases the US one a month later and can add more HPB footage. Just think if all the DVDs were released last month WB may not have released the new fottage and no one would have seen it maybe for months. WB knows that all the footage would be seen by all of us because of sites like leaky and youtube (even though WB tries to keep it off of youtube). This way we all win we all get to see more footage.

Avatar Image says:

You think so Jimi? alrighty then!!! scary fangirl expression

God forbid anyone mention the H* word again! lolz. sorry I couldn’t help it _ hehe

Avatar Image says:

Hmm. I just think the DvDs should be the same for everyone, and realised at the same time, just like all the others dvd releases. Why did they have to change it? It doesn’t matter that the footage will be uploaded on youtube or whatever, not all HP fans check the websites daily or even weekly.

Avatar Image says:

Meh, I wasn’t overly concerned about the release dates… But the fact that its upsetting people and countries who were waiting on it… WB shouldn’t have done it. maybe… mind you, they probably had some weird marketing strategy, or something…

Avatar Image says:

Of course in that comment, I meant to say “released at the same time” lol.

Avatar Image says:

Did anyone else hear what Rupert and David Yates said about RON playing quidditch?! YEAH!! And it showed his outfit. Sue, can you please tell us is this footage from the US DVD or what? Thanks!

Avatar Image says:

I was excited to see the Dursley’s sitting room. I am really hoping that they include the “won’t won’t won’t” scene with Kreacher! That would be awesome!

I’m also hoping we get Luna at Slughorn’s Christmas Party.

Avatar Image says:

Man, Melissa’s right: Neville really has turned out to be quite the hottie. :)

Avatar Image says:

Glenn, I’m sure that that is Slughorn’s not the Durseley’s. Also, someone from the imdb boards, who is very credible (he put up the ootp script months in advance and it turned out to be right…he works for the films) said that it is 90% sure the Dursely’s are cut.

Avatar Image says:

QUIDDITCH?!?1 lurvely… _ Do you think that when they show quidditch, they’re going to illustrate the fact that Draco darling is’nt at all interested in quidditch at all this year? And show that scene where Draco is stalking away with girl!Crabbe&Goyle and Harrys all like : “Where the hellz do u think ur going?” and Draco’s all like “Run along now creep or Whut-evah they’re callin u now O “Chosen one Boy who Scored” or w/ever. And Harry’s all like “Then I ain’t doin no quidditch neither” (and then a bludger breaks his head) _ silly boy… _

Avatar Image says:

I just love these little videos from the upcoming movies, they;re so exciting! Then again we love HP so much that if they just sent screen shots we would all be jumping up and down squeeing. lol…

I love the Harry and Ginny “almost” kissing scene but I hope its not the first kiss. (I dont think so because they’re was no one else in the scene and from what I could see it didnt look like the Gryfindor common room) The first one is very dramatic and passionate. I hope they do that scene the right way.

I’m dieing to see young Voldemort and Lavender!!!

Avatar Image says:

Me too, Rosa! _^

oh I’m dead excited now! squeeeee

I’m begining to sound like a certain hufflepuff. I guess it’s because this is my favorite book. hehee. ^_

question: is Shirley Henderson cast for this movie???

Avatar Image says:

YES, Quidditch is back!

Avatar Image says:

Just watched OOTP in HD and it was amazing!! If I wasn’t already excited enough for the HBP movie…I am now!! Ginny and Harry!! Yay!!

Avatar Image says:

Dear WB

You totally gave Draco Malfoy a side parting!

Yours sincerely The Slitheress

Avatar Image says:

““almost” kissing scene ” maybe it’s Harry imagining, remember how he was dreaming about Ginny?

Avatar Image says:

WOW!!!!! Amazing! Draco, Dumbledore, Horcruxes! Excellent! I don’t like how Daniel and Bonnie looks together :( Too bad!!!!!...But I loved the video!!!! Thanks Leaky!!!

Avatar Image says:

Wow…I am so looking forward to getting this DVD! I can’t wait! I’m not sure if I’ll be getting it for Christmas time or not, so I’ll have to wait to buy it until after if I don’t. But what an awesome early present! Is it on YouTube?...Probably is.

Avatar Image says:

It kind of freaked me out a little bit too.

I’m going to be hiding behind popcorn when they kiss in the movie.

I did that with the Cho one too. XP

Avatar Image says:

I just about keeled over and died when I saw these clips!!!! This is so exciting!!! I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!! ESPECIALLY THE HARRY-GINNY SCENES!

Avatar Image says:

We can all agree that it will be an amazing film, but it would be far better if it included:

Fleur DelaCour and Bill Weasley Kreacher and Dobby Moaning Myrtle Rufus Scrimgeour Vernon, Petunia, and Dudley Dursley

Also, I hope they have a legitimate way of introducing the Locket and HufflePuff Cup without using Madam Hepzibah Smith, seeing as the WB has confirmed that she and the Gaunts will NOT be in the film.

Avatar Image says:

i agree i don’t think that it is fair, that the US gets the “completed” edition whilst other countries, who may have recieved the DVD earlier have to miss out on having the many other IMPORTANT extras!

Avatar Image says:

wb didn’t confirm that the gaunts aren’t in the film. That’s just what everyone assumes.

Avatar Image says:

redbeard, they DID confirm it to several Harry Potter websites. TLC just hasn’t posted it yet.

Avatar Image says:

FYI Leaky Staff, the following is the link for the U.S. DVD Sneak Peak.

http://www.harrypotterorderofthephoenix.com/_sneak_peek/index.html

It has the first two sneak peaks of HBP from the UK version that you can watch without actually having the DVD.

I hope that helps!

Avatar Image says:

I hope in the funeral scene that everyone( rita skeeter, umbridge, fleur, madame maxime, etc) would be in HBP. i haven’t heard whether this would happen or not. i’m surprise the director didn’t annouce this yet. I hope they would try and reunite them( like the book did) in the funeral scene because it’s probably the last Harry potter film that some might be in( especially madame maxime). Does anyone else agree with me on this?

Avatar Image says:

HARRY and GINNY… finally!!! I’ve been waiting for this since 9 years ago, when I read the first book. I read all the HG moments so much that now, actually looking at some footage with them together it feels just amazing!!! Hope their gonna have some photos too!

Anyways, I totally agree with MEEK. As much as I like you guys in America, I’m really tired about you always doing things differently from the rest of the world!!! It’s really irritating. I live in Australia but I’m italian, and I got both the australian and italian version. And they are the same!!! And I guess it’s exactly the same as the english one. So why do you have it different???

And I’m not blaming it on you but at Warner Bros.

And there something else that really made me upset. I heard that they are not going to have any of the Gaunts in this movie….. how can this be possible???? How can you tell who is Voldemort if you don’t explain where he comes from!!!! It’s just ridiculous!

I watched OOTP 12 times at the cinema and I have 2 DVDs, and when people ask me why I spend so much money on it I say ‘so they can do the next movie even better…’ But it’s just getting worse…. they cut all the best scenes! And why…. because they don’t have the budget? Because the movie can’t be too long?....This is @#$x%x^!!!*

We need to do something about this!!! I want that scene in the movie!!! There is still time! What about a petition? Let’s ask JKR…...

Avatar Image says:

Could the scene where Ginny almost kisses Harry and then walks away, be where Harry tells here they can’t be together anymore? Maybe.

Avatar Image says:

And I forgot to mention.

MTV has released a new interview with the cast of Half-Blood Prince. Katie Leung, who is back to play Cho Chang in the film.

So they have the MONEY and the TIME for CHO and they DON’T for MEROPE???? @#$^x%x*

Avatar Image says:

No offence but Harry and ginny look like crap together. I can’t see harry dumping Cho for that. Honestly after seeing this, I don’t want to see anymore Harry and Ginny. No chemistry.

Avatar Image says:

Sticks: You can tell they have no chemistry from a blurry camera shot of a tv with text all over it, a glare, and zero dialogue?

Doubt that.

Avatar Image says:

The digital version doesn’t work for iPod? How stupid, it’s one of the most popular portable video players! I’ve always thought it was silly to have to pay for a movie twice if you wanted a DVD and a digital copy, so I was really excited when I heard the DVD was going to include a copy. Sad panda :(

Avatar Image says:

Bonnie has one of the worst side profiles I’ve ever scene and it does look like they are trying to hide that with the darker room but still I can see that nose and jawline anywhere. Not going to be good. Only good thing seems to be Rupert is getting more time. His romance scenes will be funny. Even Dan is talking abou it.

Avatar Image says:

I just saw the videos now…and I love them!! What a great idea!! And for anyone who hasn’t bought the DVD yet, Target is selling a deluxe edition which includes a 3-D cover and a bonus DVD with behind the scenes footage of the Harry Potter sets!!...it’s great! About 20 minutes of bonus footage! Just wanted to let everyone know. :)

Avatar Image says:

Poor, pitiful Sticks. If you dont like Harry and Ginny together fine, but dont harp on Bonnie’s looks. She is very attractive, no one can argue that. I am curious, you willing to share a pic of your profile with us?

Avatar Image says:

Alisn, I bought the one from Target also. The cover is amazing. I saw it in Sundays paper but when I saw it in person I was amazed how it changes from Harry and his gang to Voldy and his gang. I have not watched the third disk yet but I am going to go now and put it on.

Avatar Image says:

If Ms. Leung is shooting in January, and if that is when Jim Broadbent is doing his scenes, then it will probably be at Slughorn’s party. Maybe Sluggy saw some glimmer of potential in Cho…

All the talk about Ron-Lavender makes me wonder if they’ve replaced Katie Bell (a totally disposable character) with Lavender Brown, to give her a bigger part and add to the drama. I know I would.

But if they cut Scrimgeour then it shows for sure that the filmmakers aren’t interested in JK’s vision of a world in crisis, and have gone back to the Chris Columbus factory line of sugar-coated product for fangirls and fanboys. (Actually, OoTP almost made me miss Chris Columbus. At least he was using real composers and visual FX people!)

Avatar Image says:

You can access the website without the dvd I think:

Avatar Image says:

Looks like jealousy is rearing it’s ugly head once again. Bonnie IS a pretty girl and it’s sad that she is getting attacked by bitter people who want to be in her place. The same thing happened to Katie Leung and it’s so dumb. These girls are just doing their jobs and don’t deserve half the petty and vile comments made about their looks!

Face it, Bonnie is part of a billion dollar franchise and she’s playing the hero’s love interest. If the studio didn’t think her looks were up to par you can damn well be assured she wouldn’t be there.

Avatar Image says:

I second what Lark said. If Yates or ANYONE high in power on the crew for that matter thought that Bonnie was the least bit ugly or that she wasn’t “pretty enough” to play Ginny she’d be gone in a New York minute. But seeing as she isn’t gone yet, then she’s obviously up to par.

Bonnie is gorgeous! And so what if she has flaws in her appearance, don’t we all, in one way or another?!

Sorry, haters just bug me. It’s not like you can’t have opinions but having to deal with negative nellies like this is annoying! All of the kids in the HP cast are beautiful and talented. They don’t deserve to be put down like this.

Avatar Image says:

When I read HBP I kept thinking ‘there’s no way they’ll have all these Pensieve scenes in the movie’ most notably the Gaunts one and the scene with young Riddle visiting Hepzibah Smith (or whatever her name is!). For the movies they need to get down to the basics, cut out a lot of the backstory and specifics of the Horcruxes. If they couldn’t even include the full Prophecy in Ootp then…

As for Harry/Ginny, I’m glad they’ve done this little moment where they nearly kiss because in the book it IS insane that he just dives on her after the Quidditch match even though she hasn’t really shown any interest in him (since she was like 12 at least!).

I doubt they'll have much of Harry obsessing over her, the beast in his chest or whatever. Much better to show it onscreen in this way. (I don't care what anyone says, Jo has never been great at the romance stuff shock horror at Jo criticism! I mean, Hermione and Ron first kiss and it's like a comedy moment! And they won't be doing THAT in the movie because she only kisses him over him feeling sympathy for house-elves - which don't appear in the movies! I'm sure they'll do the birds thing in HBP though)

I bet they cut Felix Felicis too.

Avatar Image says:

i hope in the funeral scene that everyone( rita skeeter, umbridge, fleur, madame maxime, etc) would be in HBP. i haven’t heard whether this would happen or not. i’m surprise the director didn’t annouce this yet. I hope they would try and reunite them( like the book did) in the funeral scene because it’s probably the last Harry potter film that some might be in( especially madame maxime). Does anyone else agree with me on this? Is there a way for warner bros. to see this note?

Avatar Image says:

Performingmonkey: I’m a huge Hermione/Ron fan and the fact that their kiss was a comedic moment was perfect to me. I would not have it any other way. That’s honestly how I wanted it. It fits them as characters. So to see that said as if it’s a bad thing and as evidence that Jo can’t write romance is a bit strange to me. RHr has always had a quirky humor angle to it and most fans will tell you that’s one of the reasons they love it so much.

They will kiss in the DH movie, I’m sure of that. The powers that be are big fans of their relationship and there’s just no way it won’t happen. Circumstances might be different though.

Avatar Image says:

can we please have some clarification on this whole US/Europe DVD issue. I live in the UK and to frankly say the extras we got were rubbish is an understatement. Am i right in thinking theUKk version of the HD/Blueray will have more extras? If so can you play those on an ordinary DVD player? Does the US ordinary DVD have more extras than the UK/world ordinary DVD or again do the US fans have to buy the HD/Blueray edition, and if that is the case can we get an explaination from WB for these differences, because some sets of fans have been short changed. and this will surley backlash on future DVD sales!

Avatar Image says:

‘And they won’t be doing THAT in the movie because she only kisses him over him feeling sympathy for house-elves’

Yeah, that’s the only reason she kissed him. It had absolutely nothing to do with years of pent up feelings, frustrations and UST. Nothing at all.

The fact that it was over house elves is what makes it funny, not the reason.
Avatar Image says:

Iona: That’s crazy talk. Hermione would have kissed ANY boy who waxed poetic over house elves.

Except, not.

Honestly it was just the right “moment” as Harry put it. I loved that Hermione was the one who leapt onto him and did it.

Avatar Image says:

I hope thats not the actual kissing scene with H/G or a later one. I want it to be the one in the common room. That would be so good on screen.

Avatar Image says:

SQUEE DRACO HAS SMEXY HAIR!!!!! They’re (hopefully) keeping the train scene in, towards the end Harry had a green blanket in which looked like the train floor so kick scene very high! WOOO! I hope Emma dyes her hair soon before they start filming… it’s blonde enough in the movies GO BRUNETTE HERMIONE!

Avatar Image says:

Wow, other shippers; h/hr shippers? use the word UST too??!! I thought that was only H/D shippers.

Avatar Image says:

Parvati: UST was used in reference to Ron/Hermione here, not Harry/Hermione (who imho have none unless you’re into incest). It’s a blanket term I’ve seen used by all kinds of shippers though, in tons of fandoms not just HP.

Avatar Image says:

”...and even dialog between Professor Dumbledore and Harry discussing Horcruxes (yes really!)” – LOL, love ya, Leaky! Well, I’m sorry, but I have to say, I’m not fond of these additional snogging scenes and the comedy-thingy. I really LOVED OotP, so still hoping … Regarding Bonnie: Beauty is a matter of taste, some people may find her pretty, and some don’t, but she can still be a pleasant person.

Avatar Image says:

Ok, this must be the worst DVD launch and the worst DVD content ever. As much as I love Harry Potter, WB really got it so wrong this time. Different launch moments, different content on various editions… and so on. I am very disappointed.

Avatar Image says:

you know what’s crap, sticks and everyone else who said dan and bonnie don’t have any chemistry, is your judgment without even seeing a decent shot with the two of them together. it’s blurred for God’s sake! and can you bloody quit jumping into conclusions, the movie isn’t out yet, the shot is unclear, it is just a 4 sec part, they don’t have a chemistry, and you won’t leave Cho with the girl you can only see a blurred hair and back? you’re so immature and too pathetic. losers.

yay for harry and ginny!

Avatar Image says:

Has the WB CONFIRMED that Merope, Hepzibah, etc will not be in the movie? Or is this just speculation based on the released cast list?

Avatar Image says:

i agree with the opinions thing but it’s completely unfair to judge Bonnie just because she’s not them who will kiss Dan, or she’s not Hermione or Emma, or whatever their reason is.

i won’t go anywhere to waste my time just to bash other people. well, to each his own. i simply find people like that as losers and sick.

Avatar Image says:

There is nothing wrong with Bonnie Wright´s profile. She is a sweet, lovely, pretty young woman. Does jealousy rear it´s ugly head here, or are some frustrated H/Hr shippers at work? Yes, I am assuming, sorry for that.

Anyway, I am looking forward to HBP, it sounds wonderful so far and I loved OotP, so I have utmost trust in Yates.

But they better leave the locket Horcrux in. We need that Horcrux for at least three very thrilling and emotional scenes.

Avatar Image says:

UST is a a blanket term?? headdesk

Just shows where I’ve been spending 90% of my internet time. is embaressed

Avatar Image says:

Parvati: I think the term originated way back when in the X-files fandom with Mulder and Scully but I could be wrong.

ITA to several commenters on the jealousy/upset shippers thing with H/G. I feel bad for Bonnie already.

Avatar Image says:

i quite agree with you Mistral. i thought we were all equal! gud thing for Youtube though!

i was so excited with the Harry/Ginny! so cute! :]

im just crossing my fingers that this movie is gud!

i hope they dont show the Lavender/Ron. i want it as a surprise! i want to be in the cinema going, “OMG!”. instead of, “They got it wrong again.”.

just asking, who like dan’s new haircut? i kinna like it. it does make him younger though. : l

sorry

Avatar Image says:

About some of those hateful comments: I don’t get why some people are bashing Bonnie (just like when they were bashing Katie last year…) if its dan!fan jealousy or h/hr shippers or whatever- ... just don’t be so mean.

And no, I am not a H/G shipping fan-brat just trying to be reasonable. I just don’t see why the actresses must always be criticized because of what they are scripted to say or do. play nice some of you people. XP

Avatar Image says:

After closer inspection, I can say that Harry and Ginny were definitely in the RoR. And, at the end of the second clip of them, she said something like “I’ll see you later”. I’m pretty good at lip reading.

Avatar Image says:

I am a bit late coming in on this one, but let’s not get shirty here, ladies and gentlemen :) Honestly, every actor and actress in these films IS attractive and probably more attractive than Jo had originally thought of them when she was writing, I would garner. While it should be obvious who my favorite character is by my username here (hehe), am I 100% against the Harry/Ginny ending? Of course not. I love Hermione and personally I saw Harry with her or someone more like her. She is such a strong female character and throughout the story she keeps Harry level-headed, especially during his most tempermental moments. Ginny isn’t a very developed character, and I would like to have seen more of what she was really about. We don’t even really see her fiestiness until the 6th and 7th books. It seems that she has it in her to be a strong female character- more like my girl Hermione, since they developed a good friendship throughout the story- it’s a shame that we didn’t see more of her personality, or what makes her “tick.” Overall I am perfectly fine with Harry and Ginny, so bash me if you will, but I think these are the sort of arguements that are more viable for provoking conversation. Besides, I didn’t write the book, Jo did, so if I ever get the chance to ask her a question, I’d like to find out more about Ginny. If she is more like Hermione than we realize, I will be one happy camper :)

WOW!! If the things they said are true, i think its gonna be one heck of a movie…well they said the same about the 5th although it wasn’t all that great,and it wasn’t worth two years of waiting…i just loved the quidditch uniform…and malfoy cursing harry…i think the hogwarts express changed a bit or is it only the prefects compartment??I didn’t think its gonna be a very good movie after i read the book…cuz there wasn’t a lot of action and battles…but i’m sure they’re gonna replace it with a bit of comedy romance, some smogging, and a some bits of action in the end…i can’t wait to see it….

Hey, if what minnie says is true, I’m going to have to back her.

If it is true that some of you are snarling about Bonnie, and previously snarled about Katie, my only response is, “What, you didn’t see this coming?”

Or perhaps I missed the rumor going around that they weren’t going to throw in all the Harry/Cho stuff in OotP and the Harry/Ginny stuff in HBP because some fans would instantly be jealous of Katie and Bonnie…

Well, I’ve got a news flash for you: they were going to put this in the movies, because this stuff was in the books (no duh… you really didn’t see this coming?). If you have to snarl at somebody because somebody besides you is kissing Dan Radcliffe, blame JK Rowling.

But for crying out loud… and if some of these people minnie was talking about were H/Hr shippers, then I’m going to say what I always have said about those H/Hr supporters who couldn’t accept that they were wrong: “Get over yourselves. This is getting ridiculous.”

This is so awesome! I’m so excited they put that scene where Draco catches harry on the train in the movie!! I loved how they had Draco’s hair slicked back! Yay! I can’t believe they’re already started filming the Ginny and Harry kissing scenes? Wow. I’m most excited to see the Hermione, Ron, and Lavender love triangle stuff. I bet it’s going to be hilarious. I can’t wait to see this movie. I’m so excited that they’re making this one a comedy, because the book itself is sooo funny!

@me…: you’re kind of a downer, you haven’t even seen the movie yet. so be happy. i think this is going to be an awesome film.

Avatar Image says:

Something I think ought to be good for DH is the “seven potters” scene. I wouldn’t want to play Harry Potter for that part. Dan’s going to come out of filming that scene and the first thing he’s going to do is ask for a cognac.

Avatar Image says:

Honestly at first I thought Bonnie was not as pretty as I had pictured in my head while reading the books BUT she does play the character lovely. I think the main issue here is that some people are upset its not them getting to do the kissing scenes with Dan. Dont bash someone for their looks because its not right and you have right to say they have no chemistry. Just by the quick shots of Ginny’s jealously in OOTP the movie I know Bonnie will be able to pull it off in HBP. Trust me side profiles are not the main concern in a movie, its the chemistry and Bonnie and Dan seem to have that down pat by now.

By the way I do think that the scene might be when Harry dreams of kissing Ginny. (Maybe thats why the room is kept alittle darker, not because of Bonnies “side profile”) I love the scene and I cant wait to see more with H/G.

Avatar Image says:

OMG!! OMG!! OMG!! I have been waiting forever to see some H/G footage!! They want to give us what we want in small drops!! There’s so much tension in that scene… I’m goint to love it!! ^^

Avatar Image says:

what is UST? and please stop with the shipping wars already. they are done. the books are done. FINITO. it’s pointless to keep arguing on this

Avatar Image says:

Dan and Bonnie have a lot of chemistry, you can already see it in OotP movie, there are several very cute little moments, like when Harry says her: “hi”, they look at each other, and you can see a lot of chemistry. When Harry is teaching the DA too, and there are 2 scenes where you can see Ginny is jealous of Harry/Cho. There are 2 possible problems: you are jealous or you are blind. I noticed Daniel has a lot of chemistry with all actresses: Emma, Katie, even Evanna! So Bonnie wouldn’t be an exception! I noticed it in his other movies too.

Things I don’t understand: -Why is Emma talking about the movie if she has not even started filming it yet? - How can there be quidditch without Harry? He is the captain!! it doesn’t make sense, wich means they’ve changed the book… - Why I have the feeling are the producers, director… are giving too much importance to something so stupid like LavLav/Won Won? That plot is not important at all, quidditch is not important at all… I hope they give the time to the important things, like Horcruxes, Harry learning about Voldemort, the book/Prince… - What on earth happened to Draco’s hair? lol horrible. Now Harry’s hair looks perfect, they destroyed Draco!

Things I loved: Harry&Ginny!!! yes!! and Horcruxes talking!!!

Avatar Image says:

Also, I don’t understand how some people think they can talk about how the scene with Harry and Ginny looks like, because it’s not included in this video, what we see it’s just a camera filming the scene, so it’s crazy to try to tell how “her nose looks” or how her “profile” is.

Avatar Image says:

‘Could the scene where Ginny almost kisses Harry and then walks away, be where Harry tells here they can’t be together anymore? Maybe.’

At first I thought the same, Jeff. But now I have discarded the idea, because that would have to be in the funeral scene, so they wouldn’t have filmed it with just Harry and Ginny, they would have filmed it with all the students and all the other people who attended Dumbledore’s funeral. They would all be on the background.

I didn’t think believe in it at first, but now I think that the dream theory is possible. Firstly because the DON’T get to kiss each other, so that would be when Harry discovered his feelings for Ginny, and it would mean that he would like to kiss her but he can’t because she has a boyfriend and is ‘out of bounds’, as Harry put it; secondly, because of the excessive lighting, which is kind of dreamlike, if you ask me; and thirdly, because Harry has his eyes closed. Yeah, I know it’s a stupid reason, but the fact that he has his eyes closed is also very dreamlike.

But now I think of it, I wish it wasn’t a dream!! If it were something real, it would be all the more romantic!! ^ With Harry expecting a kiss but left there without it because Ginny remembered her boyfriend and didn’t want to cheat on him. It’s a bit dramatic, as well, because they are two people who want to be together but can’t. I can’t wait for HBP to come on theaters!! ^

I love all the stuff shown in the clip :D I was jumping up and down. And I agreee with the arguments over the US getting a better DVD than the rest; I live in Australia, and our version is the same as the UK. Not to be rude to anyone from the US, I am sure you are lovely people and this isn’t your fault, but why do you get a better version than the rest of us? I think it is completely unfair. Does Emma’s hair worry anyone else as much as it worries me? It’s blonde! I am hoping she dyes it for the movie, because Hermione has brown and bushy hair, and Emma seems to be changing Hermione’s character, which annoys me because she seems like Hermione less and less as the movies progress.

Avatar Image says:

ImHermione: Hermione puts Harry in his place when he’s temperamental/having issues? Name me a scene. When Harry rages Hermione generally cries and is downright scared of it. Her voice is timid and she backs away from him quite frightened. If she does try to comfort him it’s extremely tentative and not usually successful. All of this is especially evident in OotP. They never playfully bicker, even. A Harry/Hermione relationship would end up extremely messy because of this. To be honest this is why I have issue with Harry/Hermione. How much they have to warp the characters to defend it. Hermione is not the same Hermione as the one in the books, ergo Harry. Fans accuse other pairings of being abusive, but this relationship, although totally unintentional on Harry’s part, would come far closer to verbal abuse than any other in canon.

There is one girl who is able to put Harry in his place when he’s raging though, without being scared. That’s Ginny.

Avatar Image says:

Wow. This movie is going to PWN OOTP, which I just got on DVD. Can’t wait to see Gambon “camping it up!” And Harry/Ginny scenes make my blood boil: I’M HARRY’S GIRL, NOT GINNY!!!! ME AND GINNY SHARE THE SAME FRICKING BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!

Yay for Quidditch. And though actors are different from the roles they play, Miss Watson is getting less and less Hermione-like by the minute. (Yes that was a bitchy irrelevant remark) Anyway, I’m glad Yates is directing because he did a good job on OotP… but Kloves’ scriptwriting again? shudders

Avatar Image says:

My opinion on this video Dan’s hair is hotter than ever, my jealousy of Bonnie Wright increases, Michael Gambon is Horcruxing it up like there’s no tomorrow, and of course, QUIDDITCH IS BACK (And the uniforms rawk!) Also: Malfoy’s new haircut, Sluggy’s house, Dan, Dan, more Dan, Emma Watson, the dude who plays Neville, Rupert on his Lav-Lav scenes, David Yates, and lots of Harry/Ginny (aarrrrrggh!) stoof, ENJOY!!!!!!! Ps: If you don’t watch it you will die of Lupus.

My rating: A+++

Pros: Dan’s hair, Dumbledore, Malfoy’s new haircut, seeing Dan as Harry again Cons: Harry/Ginny, Rupert Grint/evil non-black Lav-Lav

Except for the H/G bits… ew.

R/Hr should be good.

The train & bathroom scenes and the Pensieve scenes and Slughorns party should be amazing. Why does Draco have a Clark Kent hairstyle?!? and a muggle suit again?? he was prettier in the 3rd film. :-(

Avatar Image says:

Anastasia: Harry will play Quidditch in HBP. They have even created a new outfit for him. I guess the Quidditch storyline will be somehow important for both romances. But I really don´t think we need to worry that they will overdo the lighter, funny, romantic stuff and forget about the main – story. We know Horcruxes are being discussed. We know the cave – scene is in. We know Spinner´s End is in (Narcissa has been cast), that means the Snape, UV, Draco storyline is in.

I wished people would stop worrying so much.Yes, I am disappointed and slightly concerned that the Gaunts and Hepzibah Smith are not in it, but I have trust that they will be able to show the important stuff about Voldemort´s past and the Horcruxes in another way. I am optimistic that the film will be the best HP movie so far. It is still early enoug to re-evaluate my assessment when I finally watch the movie in the cinema. Until then, I look at it positively.

Yay for Leaky! :D Thanks for those! The movie looks like it’s gonna rock! But I hope they put in enough backstory, after all that’s what I found really important in the book, rather than the whole Ron/Lavender Ginny/Harry thing. :S But it looks pretty promising! I’m glad they’re putting that train scene in so we can see how horrible Draco is :P.

Avatar Image says:

Looks like rupert is going to get his chance to shine. He’s got such great comedic skills and it looks like everybody is rooting for him. The triangle between ron/lav/hermione will be the highlight of the movie. It should be really funny. As for Bonnie, it does look like they are doing special angles and lighting on her. She does have unusual features about her so I doubt we’ll get a close up of her like we did with katie. They can work around Bonnies looks woth makeup, camera angles, etc. It’ll be okay. But it doesn’t matter since ginny is nonexistant in book 7. There will be so much in movie 7 there will be little time for romance other than the kisses between Ron/Hermione (saving the best for last) and evil Hermione and evil Harry, which Dan says he’s looking forward too. So really all this doesn’t matter between harry and ginny. it’s a one movie romance.

Avatar Image says:

Tansye, what you said about Bonnie wasn’t very nice. She is a pretty person in her own way, and they aren’t going to coat her in make up and turn her into a different person just to make her attractive. One of the things that Harry is attracted to Ginny is her personality, which should always rule over looks, so as long as she does a good acting job, people shouldn’t obsess over whether they think she is pretty or not.

Avatar Image says:

Kelly: I did not say that Hermione “puts Harry in his place”- I said “She is such a strong female character and throughout the story she keeps Harry level-headed, especially during his most tempermental moments”. Name a scene: certainly, I watched OoTP last night, and when Harry was ready to run off to find Sirius after his vision, she tried to slow him down and get him to check Grimmauld Place to see if he was there before he did anything rash. And he listened to her. I was simply pointing out the fact that she cares very much about him.

I was just expressing my opinion and you are merely expressing yours, which I totally respect. If you read further down in my post, I had stated that I would like to know more about Ginny as a character. I didn’t get enough of a background on her, personally. JKR makes all of the female charactres unique and strong, which I love and I am sure you do as well. I would like to know more about all of them if I could!

Avatar Image says:

ImHermione1027: I completely agree with you. I think Hermione is like a younger, female version of Dumbledore. She’s awesome. Hermione never gets afraid of Harry or gets timid or anything like that when he’s yelling. I mean for one thing Harry never even yells at Hermione, I can’t think of one scene where he’s yelled at her like he’s yelled at Ron. And Hermione and Harry have never gotten into a fight. Harry was made at her in POA for telling McGonagall about the firebolt, but they were 13 and Hermione had done the smart thing anyways.

Hermione is definitely a strong character and I think she “knows” how Harry’s mind works, because she knows what Harry wants to do before he even says alot of the time. Like the part in book 7, when they’re basically finishing each other’s sentences after they’re done eavesdropping on Ted Tonks and his crew. And Ron gets jealous and starts yelling at them and then leaves. And then that part in the OOTP book when Harry is avoiding everyone and won’t talk to anyone, Hermione comes and he listens to her. And she knows exactly what he’s feeling and tells to, “Stop acting all misunderstood.” She’s great!

And if you ask me Hermione is the voice of reason in the trio. I mean Harry and Ron do listen to her. When they’re making up a plan, they always ask for Hermione’s opinion. She’s the one who always figures things out. they wouldn’t have figured out what was petrifying all the people in book 2, if it hadn’t been for Hermione. And not to mention she’s saved Harry and Ron’s lives like a million times throughout the serious.

she’s definitely the best female character in the books in my opinion. After her then it’s McGonagall and then Mrs. Weasley.

i swear that video has me going.

personally i didn’t really liked the 5th movie it was very lacking, though the harry sirius momantes were a few of the good things that were done in that movie. removing snape’s memory of lily well i was highly disappointed. as i keep on saying i would have much rather it wasn’t the same Dir and co. from the 5th doing the 6th. i have low expectoins for the 6th movie :-/

as for the harry and ginny almost kiss can any one remember what room was it shot in? i think it’s the trophy room or maybe it’s Dumbledore office.

Avatar Image says:

I thought the Ginny plot was a little weak too. She is still a stranger to me even after 3 books of further appearances. Relationships need to have more substance than that in my opinion: like Ron/Hermione does. I find its more properly fleshed out with more equal interaction having been had between the two of them.

I do like lots of interaction when I choose my favorite ships: hey, thats why I ship Ron/Hermione, Harry/Hermione, Harry/Draco, Lucius/Narcissa, and Harry/Luna (although the H/D and H/Hr shippers inside me tend to get jealous of Luna)

lol that was a tangent: (gigglesnort)

Celia: thanks for elaborating on everything I was thinking/feeling! I am right there with you and agree with your thoughts completely. I did not think that Hermione ever backed down from anyone! Your quotes are very accurate in backing up this point, well done :) And seeing her as a younger/female version of Dumbledore…excellent I really like that connection.

Slitheress: that was a part of my point and I agree with you as well, I still feel like Ginny is a stranger, and I definitely don’t want her to be, I wanted to know more about her. She has tons of potential; I just wished, to use your terminology, she was more fleshed out. Hehe, as for your “ships”- let’s face it, Harry is SO amazing, he could have probably been some kind of wizard pimp and had them all wrapped around his finger :) Just kidding, just kidding!

Just save the wizarding world and you’‘ll forever have witches falling all over you!! :)

Please note- this is meant in jest. Harry’s personality wouldn’t lend himself to such activities, and that is certainly party of the reason why I love him. What woman doesn’t want a man who is modest? :)

Maybe this has already been addressed by now but I don’t want to have too read 8 pages of comments. The DVD extras ARE THE SAME!!!! We have the same special features as the British release. The British release had one link to a sneak preview of HBP on their DVD and now the American release has a link to different footage on that DVD. The footage isn’t on the dvd it self, it’s on the net just like the british one was and I think still is. You got footage we didn’t get, now we have footage you didn’t get. We’re equal. But luckily due to youtube and other various media sharing sites and methods WE BOTH GET TO SEE BOTH!!! If we HAD got the same preview it would have been only ONE of the two sneak peeks. We would have both only gotten only one sneak peak. We would have got less HBP footage. Get it? This is a good thing! We have the exact same special features disks as you do it just gives a different link to new HBP footage when you put the dvd in your PC.

I agree, getting jealous of every actress that is going to kiss Dan is ridiculous. So what if Bonnie doesn’t have a perfect face? Who does? She’s quite pretty as she is. If anything, the facial flaws make her more real. And more power to her if she doesn’t care about what other people think and just dresses and looks the way she wants to. She could pile on tons of makeup if she wanted to, but she doesn’t, and that’s fine.

So, down with superficiality, I say! It’s annoying!

ImHermione: “She is such a strong female character and throughout the story she keeps Harry level-headed, especially during his most tempermental moments”

Is what you said. How was my elucidation not the same just because I phrased it a tad bit differently?

Hermione never gets timid when Harry is angry? Firstly, Hermione is the most timid and panicky of the trio. Yes I realize she is not in the movies, but movie Hermione is frankly not Hermione (Ron is the one that flips out over stuff all the time in the movies). Secondly, she certainly does! DH when Ron is gone and they’re at the tents, and several scenes in Ootp. Harry never yells at his friends? Ootp? He SCREAMS at them. When Harry is capslock raging, Hermione can do nothing except be timid and cry and sometimes struggle to make a point. Ron can’t do anything either. He has no idea how to handle it. That’s perfectly fine. Ginny however, can. And has. More than once. Dumbledore’s death, his Voldemort possession angst in Ootp, etc.

I love Hermione but I don’t love the super-Hermione that’s being put forward here. That is not her. Hermione is a smart girl and a strong girl and she’s a fantastic character, but she does freak out easily, she is weepy, and she does not know how to handle Harry’s excess anger and temper. Not at all. Hermione is great because of her flaws and her strengths both. That’s what makes her a strong heroine.

You said you wanted Ginny to be “more like Hermione.” Then she wouldn’t be Ginny or her own unique character. Hermione is not a good match for Harry, and that’s why Ginny’s not like Hermione.

Avatar Image says:

Kelly- I am so sorry that you feel that all of my comments on this board are directed at you and are so negative against Ginny. I think you misinterpreted everything I have said. You are perfectly entitled to your comments and opinions on all characters. Although I disagree with you on many points, I completely repsect your right to say what you like. So would you do me the kind favor as to respect mine in return, as it has become quite clear that you are not.

My point was that if you choose to enter into a debate with someone on here, it is proper to quote what the other person said, and then make your counter-arguement, normally followed by facts supporting your argument. Then give the other person a chance to rebut and so forth, all in a respectful manner. What would I know though, I only have a Master’s degree in Communication.
