Oh he looks pensive.. or sullen. Turning into a Snape are we?

Avatar Image says:

Already? Oh, my word…dies...he’s got Advanced Potion Making in hand…. double dies

Avatar Image says:

what’s he holding? is it the potions book?

Avatar Image says:

When are they going to put them back in school uniforms instead of mufti ???

Avatar Image says:

Oh my goodness! I cannot believe we have an official picture ALREADY! Looooove it.

Avatar Image says:

Yay, I knew pictures would be surfacing soon! I wonder what scene that’s from. He looks…er…cheerful, eh?

Avatar Image says:

In the immortal words of Barty Crouch, Sr: “Oooooooooooooooh!”

Thank you, Melissa! When are you going to put up the Countdown? I love those!

Avatar Image says:

Harry looks older, which is AWESOME…...a picture already…...this is great….

Avatar Image says:

Yay! This is exciting! He looks intense.

Avatar Image says:

Oh my! He’s a helluva good looking guy.! He looks so young! Sorry for the drooling. Shame he’s an only child.

Avatar Image says:

I wonder what he is focusing so intensely on.

This seems so soon. But that’s great though now the other pictures will come tumbling in slowly and soon a teaser trailer. Hooray!

I hope they aren’t going to have them in Muggle atire for most of the movie.

Avatar Image says:

so much sweetness!! he has all his stealth tools, combining the power of the marauders AND snape (and lily? I like to think she worked on the book, but who know).

sorry, I may be over-caffeinated right now. my apologies if I make no sense.

must be a weekend? you’d think they would wear their uniforms at some point…just for fun.

Avatar Image says:

Nice pic! I wonder what he’s looking at or where he’s at. I’m guessing he’s in DD’s office and looking at the penseive(SP?).

Avatar Image says:

Curious… why can we see the words on the Marauders Map? Where is Harry? That doesn’t look like Hogwarts to me.. BUT THE POTIONS BOOK IS PURPLE squee how cool!

I can’t believe already an official picture they are working fast! I can’t wait for a teaser trailer! :D

Avatar Image says:

A thought just struck me, if he is at Hogwarts perhaps it’s a following Draco scene? Where he spotted him doing something weirdly and then he begins to follow him (hence marauders map being visible)

Avatar Image says:

omg!!! i knew the first official pic would be released soon! SQUEE!!!!! (if only i could get it to load!)

Avatar Image says:

and this isn’t too soon guys… the first official pics are always released a year before the film comes out… so we’re right on track… teaser trailer should be coming in march :) and this is a great pic though i have to admit, we’ve seen harry standing in a doorway many times before ;) exciting to see the potions book though!

Avatar Image says:

Well, it looks great. I wonder where he is standing.

Avatar Image says:

Shameless fangirling here, but Harry (Dan, I mean) is looking really handsome there. Bring on more HBP promo pics, I say! Hopefully more Harry/Ginny scenes soon _

Avatar Image says:

The red draping with the starry design, on the extreme left, would seem to be one of the four-poster hangings from the boys’ dormitory in Gryffindor Tower.

Avatar Image says:

Yes! And so it begins, more more more!

Avatar Image says:

My my…Dan’s gorgeous! Love his face and his hair. I’m so excited for him and Bonnie!

Avatar Image says:

i think this is soon for the first pics to be released bt is ok this shows that you guys on the right track

Avatar Image says:

Does somebody else see his nose different ? O.o or is it just me ? He looks so handsome in this pic

Avatar Image says:

WOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO!!!! YAY! First pic, Christmas came early, I have been whining and begging for some official something and here it is! Dan looks awesome, too, very intense, can’t wait, can’t wait, can’t wait! We need a countdown clock to torture ourselves with as we watch the seconds tick away oh, so slowly over the next (almost) year!!

Avatar Image says:

About countdowns, The OotP one says it is Now Showing, yet it has been out of the cinemas for months.

Avatar Image says:

Good hair, good hair. Glad he’s actually got some this time :P

How exciting to have a photo already! :D Those people know how to keep us on our toes :P

Avatar Image says:

“When are they going to put them back in school uniforms instead of mufti ???”

Here we go again. They DO wear their robes during school hours but when they are not in school hours they wear normal clothes. They wear robes and school uniforms quite often during POA, GOF and OOTP just not every blinking scene like in the first two films which I found unrealistic – I have never been able to get why this is a big deal, and if Jo had a problem with it she would tell them.

I could be wrong but I often think that those people who seem to romanticise the wearing of uniforms and school robes are the ones who never had to wear them, lol.

Avatar Image says:

Cool! I love how harry’s hair changes in every movie…. hehe… it looks good here, kinda like POA, wich was my favorite (movie and hair).

Avatar Image says:

Yeahhh! Dan looks amazing, as always. Sharp eye, Bandersnatch! I think you’re right!

Avatar Image says:

I also like how this paralell’s one of the first looks we got at the HBP book- with the Potions book on the UK cover. Ramble ramble.

Avatar Image says:

oooh, untidy hair! That’s good.

Avatar Image says:

I just have to join in the hurray :) first official picture of Harry in HBP. FANTASTIC ! It seems living in Europe – we can’t even go to bed anymore, without getting up and finding exiting new material on Harry Potter….! ...well…got to go….or my Christmas-cookies will burn in the oven!! And yes Amy S , this wasn’t to soon (smiling to herself) I with you.

Avatar Image says:

Yay, can’t believe I have to create a HPB folder on my computer so soon! :D X-mas certainly came early this year.

Avatar Image says:

I agree with you Ponette!!! It was the first thought that I had: “Half-Blood Prince Folder”..and I smiled while I created it..Gosh!! This news made my day!!!

Avatar Image says:

oommmggggggg.! i cant wait for more!

Avatar Image says:

It looks like he’s in the dormitory. And for the people who keep whinging about whether he is in uniform or not – the scene obviously takes place outside of school hours. Would YOU wear your uniform for the entire day???

Avatar Image says:

Oh My Days!! Awesome pic. A little something to tide us after till after Christmas.

Avatar Image says:

It looks to me like he’s coming in from outside. Isn’t that water behind him? And he looks much younger.

Avatar Image says:

An official pic ALREADY?! Well, I’m not complaining..!

I like Dan’s hair. This is just awesome, I can’t WAIT too see more pictures(November just can’t come soon enough).

Avatar Image says:

WOW!!! a official pic already!!!! can’t wait till it comes out!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Great picture! It shouldn’t be long, now, before we get a “countdown”. Eh Leaky? Looking great, as always. I agree with the majority, though. I’d love to see the School Uniforms, again. Other students were wearing them. in OOTP. How come the Trio (and “guests”) aren’t wearing them, all of a sudden? Wow. Pensive look. Potions book. Marauder’s Map.” Where’s he at?” Teaser Trailer, in the making!

Avatar Image says:

I wasn’t expecting for pictures to become available this early! Needless to say, I’m pleased. :D

Avatar Image says:

Actually the enlarged version of the picture is very grainy. Could do better WB.

Avatar Image says:

Harry, you forgot “mischief managed.” You’re getting sloppy.

Seriously, it’s nice to see the marauder’s map back after it disapeared for two films.

Avatar Image says:

they have been better in uniform ! And haircut that harry have is not ql. i like his hear in harry potter and goblet of fire

Avatar Image says:

I do not have many “fangirl” moments (I usually keep them to myself) but prepare yourselves: Dan is striking! I like my Harry brooding and pensive :) Good point Molly Wobble- I see that the whole map is exposed. The photo plus the HBP synopsis- wow, so exciting!

Avatar Image says:

Oh good lord, this is the sexiest pic of Dan since the Equus photoshoot. The hair is POIFECT!!!!! The HBP’s potions book is POIFECT!!!!! Harry Potter is POIFECT!!!!! Mr. Yates, you’ve done it again! SQUEEEE!!!!!!!!! I’m so going to make an icon for my LJ with this!

Avatar Image says:

“I’d love to see the School Uniforms, again. Other students were wearing them. in OOTP. How come the Trio (and “guests”) aren’t wearing them, all of a sudden?”

The trio WERE wearing their uniforms in OOTP, in the DA, in the DADA classroom scene, in the exam scene and a number of other times, when they aren’t wearing them it is out of school hours. Check the DVD.

Avatar Image says:

Wow, still almost a year to go and already the first official pic, thanks WB. And thanks Leaky.

The pic looks great. And should prove that they won´t leave the darker stuff out f the movie. Harry looks quite serious, doesn´t he? Anyway, he looks really handsome and I am glad everyone seems to like the hair this time around. ;)

Anyway, I wonder when the WB might create their HBP websites. If we already get official pics, then it shouldn´t be too long. (yes, I know I am greedy). So how about a pic with DD and Harry in the cave? Harry and Ginny in wherever they were in that scene from the peek? Ron in Quiddtich uniform? :)

Avatar Image says:

I don’t like his hair…..way too short!! But that’s not your fault Dan! You look amazing anyways….. can’t wait to see more Harry and Ginny!!!

Avatar Image says:

I am sure many of you ladies would agree with me, let’s hope that when Harry is not in uniform, they continure to costume him in those fitted t-shirts :) It is obvious that Dan works out… seems to have gotten warmer in my office all of a sudden..silly me, I can’t begin to imagine why :)

Avatar Image says:

whoa, whoa, WHOA.

Romilda and the chocolate scene is IN?! YES! Oh my gawd, that’s one of the best moments in HBP!

Now, if they only kept the bit where Harry threw a Potter Stinks badge at Ron’s forehead in Goblet of Fire…

Avatar Image says:

I think people want them in wizard robes because in the books they don’t wear muggle attire unless they are trying to blend into the muggle world. If the movies followed the books they would not be in muggle clothing. Of course Harry and Hermione wear them when they are home in the muggle world for summer break but other than that they only wear wizard robes. Ron and all the others wizards who do not go into the muggle world would never wear muggle attire especially Draco. I also think that in each move they wear muggle clothing more and more which strays from the book. But like someone else said if Jo is ok with it I guess I can be ok with it too.

Avatar Image says:

Is anyone else having issues with the Leaky Galleries? I haven’t been able to get them to work for me in a while. The page loads and at the bottom it says “done but with errors on the page.” So the page loads, but I can’t see the picture or the video or whatever it is I’m trying to excess. Maybe there’s wrong with my computer???

Avatar Image says:

MICHELE, I hate to blow your bubble, but the books clearly say, that the adult wizards wear robes, but their kids often wear muggle clothing. I believe that this is written in GOF, but it could also be COS. (although you’re probably right about draco, but even in the movies he looks more wizard-like than the others.)

Avatar Image says:

I think he’s staring at Malfoy because Harry is obsessed with Malfoy in the 6th book. The Potions book looks great. I’m really excited about this film, more than I have been since the 3rd one.

Avatar Image says:

I imagined the book to be bigger

Avatar Image says:

I love the little cauldron illustration on the book! This is a very nice picture.

Also, I was really amused to see people wondering when Leaky would put up a new countdown – that was my very first thought!

Avatar Image says:

Love it love it love it!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Book needs to be bigger, that’s all I’ll say. ... oh, and Marauder’s Map FTW! :D

Avatar Image says:

Nice pic,nice pic:)good early xmas gift XD but i have to agree about the school robes thing,it’s clear in the books that in hogwarts they never wear muggle clothes.anyway his hair is way more better then in ootp(though i think it’s still a bit too short:P)

Avatar Image says:

WOW! pictures ALREADY! SQUEEEE! keels over and dies of happiness

Avatar Image says:

The hair istill still shorter than the POA hair and in my opinion that was the best hair, just the right length for Harry. But this one’s not so bad. Dan looks very handsome in it. It’s short but remember that the OotPhair was the shortest of them all and yet the movie is the second highest grossing HP film. The non book fans must not care about Harry’s supposedly messy hair so much.

Avatar Image says:

ok…. I am a grown woman, 27 years old, sitting alone in my room, checking up on Leaky (since i Finally got my pc back online yay) and I see this…. and THIS is what came out of my mouth, my friends…)

“OhMiGawd!! eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” (high-pitched 7 year-old sounding-ish sqeeeee)

YAY! HBP pic!!!!! ok I swear… I really AM 27…. I have grey hair & everything… I’m just…. wow. bad week but this made it a lil better! TYVM Leaky!!!

Avatar Image says:

I’m sorry, but am I the only one who is not too thrilled with the pic. It’s soooo blah, so boring! It’s Harry, standing, holding some books. We’ve seen that every film thus far. I think they could have given us something a little cooler for the first promotional pic…

Avatar Image says:

Hey, that’s so cool!!! i don’t like Dan’s haircut, it’s the same like Ootp…

Avatar Image says:

I think that bright thing on the left is a window. which means he just came from outside. probably walking into a classroom, maybe potions…....?? just a guess.

Avatar Image says:

well, the movie is being released in LESS THAN A YEAR!! WOOT! So getting a pic right now makes some sense. ZOMG!!! I am sooo very exictedddx5000!!

YAY!

Avatar Image says:

Wow! This is the closest look to my Harry that I’ve seen out of Dan. It’s a great sign – can’t wait ‘till the movie!

Avatar Image says:

i can’t beleive that i have an official picture from HBP .this pic is FANTASTIC and he looks so good . wanna c the movie right now can’t wait

Avatar Image says:

Great pic! Of course it’s exciting, it’s the first HBP pic!! and he is holding the book! and he is hot! what more do you need? :D

I feel the same dg_4ever, I can’t believe we’ve already seeing the fist HBP pic! It seems it was just yesterday when I saw the first pic of a 10 years old Daniel as Harry, promoting the first movie…. and just some months ago I was watching OotP and reading HBP

It makes you realize how they don’t stop working. For example, Dan was making interviews to promote OotP until some weeks ago, and then, he has already been several months filming HBP. Am I the only one who thinks that crazy? And David Yates who has just finished OotP and now the next one…

Like always, I suppose we have to talk about the hair… well, I think it looks great! My favorite so far. It’s longer than in OotP, you have to be blind if you don’t notice that, and it’s the same length and style than PoA, which is most people favorite, so don’t try to search an excuse to criticize, because this is what you all wanted!! Btw it makes him look younger than in OotP, which is good I think.

I imagined the book to be bigger, but now I see it I think it makes sense. If it was a big book, Snape would have noticed it sooner and the plot wouldn’t be realistic.

Avatar Image says:

Oooooh….a pic! He doesn’t look all too happy…does he???

I can’t wait ‘til this movie comes out, even though I’ll be in college!!

Avatar Image says:

To bad they wont grow out his hair again. The long messy hair is so canon I wish they could atleast stick to that.

Avatar Image says:

bloody…hell..of course the potions book….dunno what i was thinking…his arm looks cheer full enough…though it looks like hes walking down a corridor….can’t wait for the trailer….its gunna be the best movie yet.. :)

HARRY POTTER RULES

Avatar Image says:

and yet AGAIN with short hair!! i can’t believe that he doesn’t care about sticking a little more to the book and show a harry with long and untidy hair…this bores me about movies

Avatar Image says:

omg!!! i cant wait for hbp!!!!!!!!!!! i am seeing it at midnight like i did with the fifth!!! the picture is so cool and they already have a picyure!!! the book is so awsome!!!!!!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Avatar Image says:

He’s sooooooooooo cute and soooooooo grown up! can’t wait to see the whole movie! (even if books are so much better.) OotP’s so short and many things are missing…hopefully the 6th episode will turn to be more faithfull…
