Another apparent new image from the upcoming “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” has surfaced online tonight. In this photo, which you can see here, you can see Snape (Alan Rickman), Draco (Tom Felton), and Filch (David Bradley) at what looks to be a party, most likely the Slughorn party at Christmas. UpdateThanks to Potterish, we now have the same photo available here in color.

Thanks to Potterish, and to ScarPotter and Oclumencia for emailing.

Excellent.

WOW! Draco is looking HAWT!

Avatar Image says:

That is definitely the scene at Slughorn’s party. And do I see Slughorn and Luna in the background too?

Can’t wait.

Avatar Image says:

YAAAAAAAYYYY!!! Finally, a really GOOD HBP pic! (happy dance)

I don’t think that can be Slughorn. The costume and the mustache are right, but it looks nothing like Jim Broadbent. I’m also pretty positive that’s not Luna.

However, I do think that’s Blaise Zabini there on the right.

Thank you, Leaky, for posting!

I dont know but something is smelling not good, why are those photos in the internet? What is the strategies that WB is following?...Im confused.

But it look so great…I cant wait to see HBP!

Avatar Image says:

Squee! Now this is an HBP picture I can get excited about!

I wonder if Draco is going to be wearing that same suit throughout the entire movie? That boy needs some variety in his wardrobe, LOL.

I love the way the set looks. Fabulous picture.

Awesome! i can’t wait for HBP!!!! =]

Avatar Image says:

AAAAAHHHH!!! I HAVEN’T EVEN LOOKED AT THE PICTURE YET BUT I’M ALREADY FREAKING OUT!!!!!! SOOO EXCITED!!!

Avatar Image says:

I love how this popped up as I was listening to Tom Felton’s music which is now on the iTunes music store.

Avatar Image says:

yay! the party! That could be zabini, but that other guy looks nothing like Jim.

Avatar Image says:

that is a good pic but oclumencia.com also has it in color. The curtains are green and the lamps are pinkish. And that’s not Luna but maybe slughorn!

Avatar Image says:

Yeah I’ve just seen a colour version.

Avatar Image says:

sidepart!Draco

Avatar Image says:

ooh look at blaise lookin’ all hawt and stuff.

Avatar Image says:

Malfoy’s haircut is PERFECT. Snape is Snapey as always. Ooh look Filchie is there too! But WHERE OH WHERE is SLUGGY? That is the burning question we all have….what does Sluggy look like?

Avatar Image says:

Yep – I agree with the assessment that it’s Blaise on the right, no Luna and no Sluggy. Great pic. Thank goodness someone is willing to leak photos since WB is being so lame…....

Avatar Image says:

FINALLY! I’ve been waiting for news, any tiny little pieces of news about the HBP movie so this is soooooo exciting!!! I hope they starting realeasing more photos and the teaser trailer soon!

Avatar Image says:

I think the mustached man looks like Jim Broadbent.

Blaise FTW. Yummy.

Avatar Image says:

AHHHHHHHHHHH! Snape! my beloved has returned! I have been waiting and waiting for something and here it is. ITs awsome I cant wait for this movie. I agree that cant be Slughorn and Luna. Luna looks too old if that is her and Sluggy isn’t very fat as Jim said he would be. Oh I cant wait to see Alan in this movie – I’m going to drool through the whole thing.

Avatar Image says:

Agreed with BellaSnape. Alan Rickman is hot. But no one is hot as DAN.

Avatar Image says:

@ DeathlyH:

Guh, DAAAAN. ::licks his face::

Erm, sorry, got carried away… So, yeah, great pic! Ahem.

Avatar Image says:

ahhhh! i only have one word to describe this: EXCITING!!!

Avatar Image says:

Can I make a confession?

I… don’t find Alan Rickman attractive. At all. I do think he’s a fabulous actor, and he has a really nice voice, but as far as his physical appearance and his mannerisms, etc… no, can’t say I find him even remotely attractive. Am I the only woman on earth who feels this way?

He makes a great Snape, though.

Avatar Image says:

Very nice picture. At last we saw some more people from the movie. Ok that is not Luna. The black is Zabini and who is that guy behind the person who think it’s Slughorn. Could it be the vampire. I hope we get to see some pictures of Bonnie and Jessie. I wonder who will bee playing Demelza Robins?

Avatar Image says:

cool pic I think the guy in the fez/hat just behind snap and bacinthe background of the shot might be sanguini the vampire. none the less cool cool pics and i do have to wonder id the so called “leaked” pics are actually leaked or a clever ploy by wb

Avatar Image says:

AWESOME!

Avatar Image says:

AWWW!!! At last-physicaal proof that its really happening. And Tom-(melting in my seat) looking fabulous as Draco!

Avatar Image says:

Great pic.Looks more better in color.thanks leaky!

Avatar Image says:

Don’t worry, Saria, I can one-up you: Not only do I not find Alan Rickman attractive, I don’t find Tom Felton, Rupert Grint, or Jason Issacs attractive, either. I like them all really well, and I think they do a good job in the movies, but I don’t think any of them are at all sexy, or even sort of “cute”. In all honesty, Dan Radcliffe is the only male member of the cast I consider even slightly handsome or attractive. As for the other guys, I’ve never understood all the swooning and squeeing they inspire.

(One other shocking admission: Even though I think Emma Watson is a moderately pretty girl, I don’t think she’s half as gorgeous as everyone proclaims her to be.)

Avatar Image says:

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, OMG I CAN”T BELIVE IT, I”M SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

ugg, its going to drive me crazy trying to figure out the peeps in the background. The one kind of resembles jessie cave…or maybe they threw in gwenog jones for the party? Slughorn? Worple? no clue. Great pic though!

Avatar Image says:

Um, is this a real HBP pic? It looks photoshopped to me; with Snape’s, Draco’s etc robes blurred, and black-and-white so you can’t tell the color difference between them.

Avatar Image says:

While we wait for the teaser, we should all watch Indiana Jones.4 :) That movie was EPIC.

Avatar Image says:

Saria, I don’t find Alan attractive either. I agree to his prowess on screen, but as far as drooling over him—eh, I can’t. Believe me, girl, you’re not alone in thinking he’s not that good looking-even for an older guy.

He’s always looked to me like that kind of lonely-reclusive-intellectual type of guy that lives down the street in the big old house with the square hedges and hands out grapes for Halloween: “one only, children”.

I guess some people are in to that.

Avatar Image says:

Oh and look. dead centre There’s Wendy Slinkhard. Just kidding. Although…...it could be.

Avatar Image says:

C’mon Leaky, why such a small picture and in black and white?!

Avatar Image says:

I think snapes face is permanently angry and out of all of the cast draco is the hottie

Avatar Image says:

omg! this movie is going to be the best one!!! GO DRACO!!!

Avatar Image says:

To mc8105: Jesse Cave is not in that scene she wasn’t in that scene for the book so why put her in a scene where she wasn’t in the book.

Avatar Image says:

Just one more thing: There is another person in the photo. It’s a man. He’s on snapes side. You can only see the eyes nose and some black hair. If anyone else sees it let me no

Avatar Image says:

Well, I most certainly know Im not the only one with the hots for Sev. If I am I have no problem with that- we can keep each other company over on Spinners End. LOL! I cant explain why I love Alan, he just has this charisma about him, and his voice and I think that he can be very attractive. In Fact most of the actors in HP are attractive. p.s. To me age is but a number, so I dont care how old he is to me he isnt old. I like some actors that are even older than him. A person shouldnt be judged on their age- thats my moto. Obviously though to me hes hottest as Snape.

Avatar Image says:

i’m so excited!!!! I can’t wait for this movie to be out :D plus, Draco is my ultimate favorite character :) x

Avatar Image says:

I think this is just another way to divert us from demanding the trailer!

Avatar Image says:

I suspect the man behind Snape – with the mustache- is the Vampire Expert. Right behind the mustache looks like Sanguini.

Avatar Image says:

Interesting picture.. not what i imagined the scene to look like. I thought the christmas party was in slughorns office.. looks like a jungle/outdoor look. Alan Rickman is going to own this movie!

Avatar Image says:

but then again.. we’re dealing with magic so he could make his room look however he wants to…

Avatar Image says:

I’m guessing we will be seeing more pictures of the other characters besides dan, rupert, and emma. I hope they put pictures of quidditch, the pensive, the kiss dosent matter which one, the burrow, the joke shop, hogwarts, or the classes.

Avatar Image says:

PLS PLS PLS WB give us a trailer SOON!!!

Avatar Image says:

Oh.. That is NOT Luna ;D They’ve already finished filming, why no teaser trailer?! .

Avatar Image says:

The Leaky Cauldron said that the HBP trailer is connected to the movie Get Smart. And this time it better be their, Because the last they said it was connected to Prince Caspian and it wasn’t. I got mad about that, Do you think there going to show the HBP teaser trailer on the Leaky Cauldron, The Snitch Seeker or the Gryfindoor Gazette, or any other place. Get Smart is coming out June 20. But you must know that.

Avatar Image says:

squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Snape! snape! snape!...He looks so young(and handsome too).......................Speechless I can’t wait to see the moive…..... Alan rickman rocks!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH I CANT BREATHE!!!!

DRACO…. SNAPE

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH faints

Avatar Image says:

Cool photograph :) Can’t wait 4 da trailer + movie! It’s gonna b brilliant!... I hope…

Avatar Image says:

Nice pic. Snape’s back…woohooooooooooooooooooooo Draco seems quite intense. Filch is awesome like always I don’t really like the greenish/pinkish decoration of Slughorn’s office though. I expected something a bit more close to christmas.And the fairies etc.Well,they’ll put them with CGI.Anyway,I can’t wait for something more.

Avatar Image says:

Slughorn had decked out his room in green, scarlet and gold drapes so that it looked like a huge tent. The actor on the left in the hat is definitely not Jim Broadbent.

It is time we had some decent promotional pictures, who do they think buys tickets for the films and makes their fortunes if not HP fans?

Avatar Image says:

Aaaaaah Alan !!! What more need I say ?? This little pic just made my day !

Avatar Image says:

i want to see its color version

Avatar Image says:

It is one of the first times that we have Draco in the first pictures that we see!!!! Which means that they have made him important!!! (and Snape!!!) That is exactly how I pictured the Slug parties!!! Some hi-res WB???? (and a trailer of course)

Avatar Image says:

This is so awesome!!! I think picture is real,no matter if its black and white.Thats no Slughorn,and thats not Luna. 100%.

about who’s cute or not Daniel is hot, Rupert is cute. and about Alan Rickman-you see,our feelings(fans) about Alan is like Bella/Voldemort :). someone said that Emma isn’t gorgeous. I think she is! She’s the most beautiful actress under 30.

Avatar Image says:

I forgot something. I said just yesterday that I want new pics of HBP. and here it is. OMG,I think I’m a witch. Hogwarts,here I come. prof. Snape,I’m very interested in dark arts:)

Avatar Image says:

One word, HOT!

Avatar Image says:

Alan Rickman is SEXY! Everything about him, especially his voice swoon My mouth practically hit the floor when I heard it IRL <3

About the picture… Agreed that moustache guy isn’t Slughorn, that looks nothing like Jim Broadbent although the clothes & moustache do fit Slughorn’s description. The blonde girl looks absolutely nothing whatsoever like Luna. And the scene does not look remotely jungle-like haha, when was the last time you saw silk drapes & lampshades in the jungle! =P

Avatar Image says:

@starfish and Greymane… Patience, people, patience! As someone once said, “Patience is a virtue” and as someone else said, “Good things come, to those who wait!”...that’s why they call it a “teaser” people! LOL [But I DO hope they don’t keep up the “teasing” much longer!] :D In MY humble opinion, Alan Rickman: ‘Snape’, ‘Col Brandon’, ‘Judge Terpin’=gorgeous!

Avatar Image says:

AHHH (:

Draco looks hawt !

and yes that is indeed Slughorn’s party, cause I remeber the scene well, even if I can’t remeber half the book =D

I’m soo excited!!!

Avatar Image says:

The guy in Slughorn’s outfit could be a stand-in. Same for “Luna”. Slug doesn’t look much like Broadbent, but it’s hard to say for sure.

Is it just me, or do the movies increasingly resemble fan art? Particularly Zabini = 98% Makani’s sketch. You can tell the filmmakers stopped caring about quality when they hired Yates for Deathly Hallows Reloaded.

Avatar Image says:

I don’t think they are stand-in, they are not used in scene with the real actors, but one thing is sure, that is not Evanna.

Can’t wait to see the trailer!!! It sucks!..... I’m hoping to see when I go to the cinema to watch “The Happening” (I know… it is R rated and it’s probably not going to happen, but still…)

I fell in love with Alan Rickman when I first saw “An Awfully Big Adventure” and can’t help to think he is the most talented actor of his generation, other than being the hottest old guy ever! ehehhehe :P

Avatar Image says:

And by the way! I don’t think he is attractive at all. as Snape… I loathe him there! I this point, i have to disagree with most in here! :D

Avatar Image says:

Sorry for being a bit random. but that girl in the background is really very pretty. jealousy

Hahha. Good to have a new pic! :D

Avatar Image says:

What happended to Draco? He looks horrible and too old.

I don’t remember Snape talking to Draco at the party, I thought Harry hears them after he left the party. Does this mean they have change it and in the movie Snape and Draco argue at the party? I hope not… it’s something that not everyones is suppose to hear.

Avatar Image says:

Heh, I love the way Draco has worn the exact same outfit in every movie since PoA. Isn’t he supposed to be rich? Can’t he afford more clothes than that, eh? Anyway, weirdly, he looks exactly like my mental image of Hamlet somehow in this picture. Wonder how he’d do playing that part.

Anyway, I’m really glad they kept this scene in the film! I was watching OotP last night with some friends, and we were grousing about how Draco’s not in the fourth and fifth films enough… and my friends are dudes. And we also heartily approve of Filch, so I’m glad he’s playing a big part as well.

I’m seriously hoping that’s Blaise lurking in the corner. Because if so, he is aaaa-ttractive.

Avatar Image says:

I love Alan! I really think he is very attractive for being 62 years old. And I love his voice and mannerisms too. As Snape he is so good as you don’t really know is he is being good or bad or somewhere in between (unless you have read all the books of course). I don’t get Draco being too old. How old is he, 19, 20?

Avatar Image says:

As for the whole ‘who’s attractive’ dealie, I have to admit, I’ve never found Dan even remotely attractive… he always looks a bit… disproportionate to me. I’ve actually had nightmares about his neck after I saw OotP, where they kept on zooming in on it. I’m also not so wild about his acting choices… just because he doesn’t seem at all like my Harry to me. But Dan always seems like a very charming and funny person, and he does have a really interesting personality.

Rupert Grint’s the opposite—I like him as Ron (even though I grrrrreatly prefer canon Ron), and I think he’s actually quite good-looking, but he always seems kind of inarticulate and sleepy in interviews… I don’t fancy either him or Dan, but I don’t hate either of them, either.

Tom’s okay, I’m very glad he’s Draco and he looks and sounds and acts the part, but Draco’s never really been my type. I remember I had a bit of a crush on him when the first two films came out (I was eight and nine years old then!), and then when the third one came out, I was like, “WHAT HAPPENED TO MY DRACO?” But I think he looks perfect for the role, and he’s pretty handsome in his own way.

Uh… let’s see… Phelps twins are awesome but not attractive per se, Jason Isaacs is just fantastic in every possible way but I very rarely crush on adults, and he’s not one of my victims. (Weirdly, I think he looks a lot better as Lucius than in anything else.) Alan Rickman is downright brilliant, and I love watching him in movies, and his voice is just unbelievable, but I definitely don’t think he’s attractive. He can definitely pull off acting sexy, but he’s not handsome. Kind of a Mr. Rochester-ish kind of appeal.

So who do I like from the HP cast? MATTHEW LEWIS. I have this unabashedly huuuuge crush on him, though actually I like him better as Neville, all awkward and and dorky, than his actual cool movie-star self. He’s just the perfect Neville, even though he doesn’t come close to my mental image.

Avatar Image says:

RUPERT GRINT IS SOOOOOOOOOOOO FIT!!! I wish he was in this picture, but TOM FELTON IS ALSO FIT!!!!!

alan rickman is too! Altogether this a good photo!!

Avatar Image says:

Guys, or whoever asked about them possibly arguing in front of the others- this just looks like its following the book, Filch comes in dragging Draco and Harry sees ” a worried almost scared” look on Snapes face, then Draco admits he wasnt invited and then Snape and Slughorn argue that Snape is his head and should be able to decide if he if suitable to stay. Because Slughorn says” Ah let him stay Severus, its Christmas” and Snape says ” Im his head of house I’ll decide whats best”. then Draco and Snape leave and go to the classroom and argue. p.s. my quotes arnt exact.

Avatar Image says:

Great Picture! Obviously it is a Slughorn’s party. I wonder who had to stand on a box and/or in a hole because Alan Rickman and Tom Felton are reported to be the same height …6’1”. Just Curious.

I SOOOOO want to see a trailer!!!!!!! :-(

Avatar Image says:

This is great!! Snape and Draco at Slughorn’s party. Can’t wait for more pictures and trailer

Avatar Image says:

Nikpik – I think you’re right. The man on the left is probably Eldred Worple, with Sanguini behind him. Although not quite like the book description (although when have they ever gotten in exactly right?), on page 315 in HBP (Scholastic hardback) it says, “Worple, who was a small, stout, bespectacled man, grabbed Harry’s hand and shook it enthusiastically; the vampire Sanguini, who was tall and emaciated with dark shadows under his eyes, merely nodded. He looked rather bored. A gaggle of girls was standing close to him, looking curious and excited.” I can’t tell if he is “bespectacled” or not – could be holding his glasses? This scene could included Sluggy, Trelawney, Luna, and Harry; they could be filming it from Harry point of view, so that those characters are “out of frame.”

I want “facts!” Gimme something, will ya, WB?

Avatar Image says:

Nikkip – not, nikpik. Sorry! :}

OH MY GAWWD Draco. Blaise Snape!!! YES YES YES!!!

YESSSS!! THANK YOU WB

OH YES!

this has me so excited! Draco’s sneer is just perrrfect!! (as always)

Cant wait! counting down the days. 169 days left!!!

Live, Love, Harry Potter!!

Avatar Image says:

Ok, so Karate Kid is on tv at the moment and i’ve just realised that Tom, as Draco looks just like Johnny the bully from the film! Cool pic, love a bit of Rickman x

Avatar Image says:

Great picture. Finally, after months of anticipation! Slughorn’s party looks good. I hoped to see Dan though, too bad. But Draco and Snape are looking simply awesome!!!

Avatar Image says:

There’s a new Harry picture from HBP up on Oclumencia!

iamfezYOU ARE A GOD. :DDD Or goddess, I don’t know i fyou are a girl or not …. XD But OMG. That picture looks GREAT of Dan! AHHHHHHHHH! And this Christmas picture is PERFECT! ;]

Avatar Image says:

That is absolutely not Luna. It’s utter nonsense, it can’t be!!!!!!!! That looks nothing like Evanna. Must be someone else!

Avatar Image says:

I totally agree; that’s not Luna. It doesn’t even look close to Evanna. She has a longer nose, and not that high of cheek bones. If it is her, then she must have gotten surgery or something. Lol. :)

My God… Blaise is scrumptious. Mmmmmm.

Avatar Image says:

Harry eavesdropping??!!

Avatar Image says:

I really thought the green draperies would be more emerald than that. Otherwise it looks like a truly fantastic scene.

Avatar Image says:

ohh yummy =]

Avatar Image says:

I really hope all these pics coming out means we’ll start getting even more. And a trailer, of course!

Avatar Image says:

Wow, the pics are coming fast and furious now! Even caught the pic of Romilda on Oculmencia. Trailer, please WB? (and some pics of Jesse as Lavender: :)

Avatar Image says:

Maybe it’s not supposed to be Luna. Maybe it’s one of those random people they put in there for kicks. I wonder who they’re going to cast a s Marcus Belby for DH, since Robert- chokes up. Well, yeah. Ha snayone seen the Twilight teaser. Even THAT came out, and no sign of HBP coming out. I’m hoping HBP teaser comes out with Get Smart.

Avatar Image says:

(Gasps) I see Blaise Zabini! Yay!

Avatar Image says:

Maybe that pic of Harry is when he hears what Snape and Draco are talking about and realizes that his worst fears have been confrimed as he suspected they would be. Draco is a Death Eater. But didnt it say he was under the invisibility cloak? Or he could have just saw a memory of Dumbledores with little Voldy- that would creep anyone but Bellatrix out.

Avatar Image says:

Yeah, that`s what I thought at first too: Harry eavesdropping on Snape and Draco. But why then, is their sunlight in the window? Wasn’t the party at night?

Avatar Image says:

Slither what is the pic from your avatar ?

Avatar Image says:

i agree with snitchseeker101 i just carnt wait!!! ive bean watching the youtube onse but there other pics form th other films but the sims 2 ones there very creative.I love the caracter draco!! and snape semes sirious but safe if you read the last book. CANT WAIT FOR IT !!!

the picture helps the sad times of being adicted with nothing new to watch (happy dance)

Avatar Image says:

@ Christine: maybe it’s a tea party? Though it would still be dark by 4:30 in winter.

Avatar Image says:

Yay! There’s a coloured version, too, and a new pic of Harry! =D

Avatar Image says:

Yayy!!! Great picture!

Just hope we can get an HQ one soon from WB?? That’d be really nice, WB. ;)

Avatar Image says:

YAY!!! finally some more pix, lol.. Draco is looking SEXY!!!! yummy!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Best Snape outfit I’ve seen…is that Slughorn behind Snape?

Avatar Image says:

The consensus Batmanfan is that , the wizard by Snape cannot logically be Slughorn- he looks nothing remotely like Jim Broadbent. Some think he is the Vampire escort guy. sounds right to me.

Avatar Image says:

This seems like a good time to ask:

Hey Leaky, are we going to be getting a new HBP movie countdown anytime soon? As much as I’ve enjoyed the OotP one, it’s a bit old and outdated by now.

Avatar Image says:

youtube.com/watch?v=v1wPcAasG3E

Avatar Image says:

YEA BABY!

Avatar Image says:

OMGOSH is that Draco’s mom standing there beside him? He’s so hotttttt!

Avatar Image says:

Oh – this is sad. I surprised myself by not finishing the OOTP movie, I think I have just watched it so much I know what is going on so its not interesting. Need something new! Like HBP, anyone else have this happen where you have watched one of the movies so much it just got old. Not to mention I saw it in the theatre 6 times before I watched it multiple times at home too.

Avatar Image says:

@ BellaSnape:

I haven’t got tired of OotP yet, although I have reached the point where there are a few scenes I fast forward through (like Harry & Luna in the forest, and the whole Grawp thing) because I didn’t enjoy them that much in the first place. But on the whole, I still LOVE LOVE LOVE OotP. It’s my favorite of the movies so far.

However, I’ll admit I’m pretty tired of PS/SS by now. And I only saw PoA once, and never bothered to watch it again, because I disliked it so intensely.

Avatar Image says:

Wow, Ashley, I thought I was the only one who didn’t like that seen in OotP with Harry and Luna and the thestrals. Everyone else raves about it, but I thought it was, well, not very good.

1. The whole thing with Harry wandering through the forest and just happening to stumble upon Luna Lovegood, who lo and behold just happened to be there at the exact same time felt REALLY contrived to me. The whole scene just had a very tacked-on feel to it; it didn’t flow well with the rest of the movie.

2. This is possibly because I’ve become overly-sensitive about the horrible way they’ve Mary Sue-ified Hermione, but I cringed a little when Luna started making oh-so-insightful comments about Voldemort and what he must be thinking. Luna has a unique sort of wisdom, yes, but now she’s so very wise and omniscient that she can tell what Voldemort is thinking? Please. WB, you ruined Hermione by turning her into a Mary Sue, don’t do the same to Luna.

3. As wonderful as I think Evanna is in the role, and as perfect as I think her voice is for Luna, I can only listen to her speak in that shrill, high-pitched voice for so long before it starts to set my teeth on edge. She speaks enough in that scene that, by the end of it, her voice has really begun to grate on me and I’m feeling decidedly cranky.

4. Overall, I was a big fan of both Dan and Evanna’s acting in OotP, but I didn’t think either of them were at the top of their game in that scene. Dan was rather wooden, and Evanna was trying WAY too hard.

So yeah, I didn’t think that scene was very wonderful. I’m just glad to know I’m not alone.

Definitely the brazilian sites of Potter are keeping alive all the fans around the world during this long wait of movie 6…

Avatar Image says:

This picture is from the scene where Filtch catches Malfoy trying to crash the party. From there Harry follows Snape and Malfoy to the bathroom and overhears Snape trying to “Help” Malfoy in whatever hi is doing. Malfoy ends up marching out of the bathroom, leaving Snape at the door and Harry under his invisibilty cloak behind the door. Harry is now definitely convinced that Malfoy is a Death-Eater.

OMG! slughorn’s PARTAAAAAAAY!

how freakin cool!! i can’t wait till HBP!

Avatar Image says:

The blond woman standing in the background is Wendy Slinkhard. The mustached dude may be Eldred Worple (he is definitely not Sanguini).

The scene, as many have said before me is when Filch finds Draco “up to something” and hands him over to Snape. Harry then overhears Snape offering to help Draco.

I am the same guy who used to comment as || but for some reason none of my comments when I use that moniker are published anymore.

Avatar Image says:

Someone a few pages back asked: This scene is straight out of the book. It’s the moment when Draco gets caught by Filch and brought into the party for Snooping around in the halls. Snape is surprised to see Draco and Harry detects what looks to be a quick flash of “fear” in Snape’s eyes. IT’s right after Sluggy makes his comment to Snape about Harry being Soooo good in Potions- that he “must take after his Mother!” ( Cue Rickman’s eyebrow. LOL!)

They really are bringing out all the Snape moments- finally- for the Half Blood Prince. YAY~
