The new photo was one of two that AOL Moviefone now has online from the movie, the second is this photo of Harry and Professor McGonagall (Dame Maggie Smith).

I think that the scene with Maggie Smith is after the major loss…

Avatar Image says:

YAY!!

Luna looks great here…totally not expecting the spectrapecs to look like that, and yet, it totally works!

Avatar Image says:

just looked at the pictures and they are both great, but in the one with harry and prof McGonagall isnt harry holding dumbledores wand which would seen to suggest that it is after his death.

Avatar Image says:

I just love Evanna more and more every time I see her as Luna. As for the McGonagall pic, that’s definitely after the death, because that’s Dumbledore’s wand… I just want to yell, “Keep it, Harry! It’s the Elder Wand! Keep it!”

We have to be getting a trailer soon after all of this…

Avatar Image says:

can i just point out that i am on cloud numer 9 right now. mean this is a great late birthday present :-) (though my B-day was over 30 days ago).

oh and yea i just love Luna she’s so wacky she reminds me of myself in some ways.

Avatar Image says:

I totally love this. Today and yesterday are/were the best days throughout all of HBP filming! Lol. ;) So many new pictures. Oh my gosh! I’m about to faint!

Avatar Image says:

Evanna Lynch, you are awesome. That is all.

Avatar Image says:

Luna is unrecognizable in htat picture. I thought it might be that other new blonde chick at first.

Dan however looks absolutely so handsome! He is most definitely the star.

Avatar Image says:

Yeah I think this is after Dumbledore death, look how sad McGonagall looks if you enlarge the image

Avatar Image says:

Cool!! The hype for HBP begins!! But we want our trailer!! Come on WB!!!

danz, you beat me too it!! That is exactly what I was gonna say about Harry and McGonagall. Any sign of a locket???

Avatar Image says:

I totally love this. Today and yesterday are/were the best days throughout all of HBP filming! Lol. ;) So many new pictures. Oh my gosh! I’m about to faint!

Avatar Image says:

wow, yeah that surely is dumbledore’s wand harry’s holding… ties in a lot with DH…

Avatar Image says:

I totally love this. Today and yesterday are/were the best days throughout all of HBP filming! Lol. ;) So many new pictures. Oh my gosh! I’m about to faint!

Avatar Image says:

HHAHAHAHAHA!

That’s hilarious. She IS Luna. Evanna must’ve loved wearing those.

And Dan is pretty hotttt in the other picture.

Guys, we finally have news and pictures! How long have we waited for this??

Avatar Image says:

LUNA <3 Finally! This is making me soooo excited! =D

Avatar Image says:

It’s the elder wand!! :D

Avatar Image says:

hahaha, oh Luna. XD

Its scary how grown up these kids look. Its even more scary that I haven’t finished my essay and I’m looking at these instead. XD

Avatar Image says:

Evanna Lynch is amazing as Luna, She’s just so perfect!*

The picture of Professor McGonagall & Harry is brilliant. so sad…

Avatar Image says:

Today is definetly HBP day!!! so many pics! just wait for the trailer! all pics are awesome. and I think I’m in loved with Rupert,again:D Luna is hilarious:D

Avatar Image says:

OH MY GOSH the spectrespecs are AMAZING!!! AHH!

Avatar Image says:

Evanna Lynch is amazing as Luna, She’s just so perfect!*

The picture of Professor McGonagall & Harry is brilliant. so sad…

Avatar Image says:

Am I the only one who sees the problem with the photo of Harry and McGonagall? Isn’t the Elder Wand supposed to be in Dumbledore’s tomb, so that Voldemort could steel it in the seventh book?

I also must say that the pics are magnificent!!! I join the majority and say: Can’t wait ‘til the trailer!!! But I hope they don’t come up with a teaser anymore. I want a full and worthy trailer. (Srry for my problably bad English, i’m Dutch (Flemish) you see.

Avatar Image says:

Yay! It’s Luna! Now I want some of these Spectrespecs! :P They could probably make them and get loads of money- people would buy them for sure! :D

Avatar Image says:

More pictures? I don’t believe it! I am sooooooo excited!!!!

Avatar Image says:

this is the best photo EVER. <333

Avatar Image says:

Sorcererke, You are right The wand Harry is holding must be the Elder Wand. The scene might be after Dumbledore’s death and before the funeral. Perhaps Harry suggests that they should put it in the tomb? I don’t know.

Avatar Image says:

this is the best picture EVER. someone make posters and wallpapers!

Avatar Image says:

So, where can I get a pair of Spectre glasses?

Avatar Image says:

luna cracks me up with her crazy calmness…I LOVE HER!!!!

Avatar Image says:

luna cracks me up with her crazy calmness and talking…I LOVE HER!!!!

Avatar Image says:

I ADORE Evanna Lynch. She’s perfect as Luna. Her performance takes me back to Kenneth Branagh’s Lockhart. SIMPLY PERFECT.

Avatar Image says:

Wow, I have only been gone four and a half hours and there’s all these new pics, LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! July seems to have been the opening of the floodgates, we have Independence Day (US) AND Independence from stress, worry, wonder and waiting, DYING for HBP news, so many great images to drool over! YAY!!! The Spectrespecs are perfect, Evanna couldn’t be any more like Luna if she actually WAS her in real life, and Dan looks amazing. That scene in DD’s office (has to be after DD’s death) looks so heartbreaking and the WAND, oh, my goodness, what are they setting us up for in the beginning of DH??? CANNOT WAIT!!! Come on trailer, my July will be complete!

Avatar Image says:

OH MY GOD!!! LUNA marry me!!!!!! HBP is gonna be the best film just because of this XD

Avatar Image says:

The Luna pic is funny but silly. I mean, I like the spectacles and Evanna’s face but that’s it. I mean, all these new pics are way too romantic, comedic…Dunno. The pic with McGonagall is nice but still, I don’t see anything that sad or whatever… I don’t know I’m seriously worried about this film.Heyman said that there are a couple of flashbacks and there’s this entire romance/comic plot that gets on my nerves.I mean, ok the film needs some fun but all these pics mostly show that kind of subplot with the exception of th sad pics with Harry,Harry and McGonagall, Harry and Hermione in the snow and Draco in the Room of Requirement.Dunno, guys… It’s one of my least favourite books and it seems that there isn’t enough seriousness, darkness and action which is definitely needed after OotP and GoF which were definitely much more powerful (even though GoF was not canon at all in most parts and OotP was a bit bland and boring in some parts particularly due to the plot and the lack of interesting music)

Avatar Image says:

WELL HOW SAID PEOPLE FROM IRELAND IN LOUTH WERENT MAD THATS WERE I CME FROM AND SO THOSE EVANNA!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Sorcererke, I was thinking the same thing. I suspect the film makers are altering the Elder wand storyline somewhat so that it is more fathomable to the movie going audience. If we think about it a bit, the Elder Wand story is bloody complicated and I dont think I even fully understand yet. It needs to be more simplified. Yes, I know its a Deathly Hallows issue but perhaps the film makers want to at least introduce us to “Dumbledore’s Wand” now but not necessarily mentioning the Elder Wand yet.

Remember, David Yates and David Heyman have said it themselves that they are juggling/changing a lot of storyline aspects necessary to make the best entertaining films whilst being faithful to the overall themes of the books. And I 100% applaud them for that bravery!

Avatar Image says:

danz~ that was what I was thinking when I saw this. It does look like it’s dumbledore’s wand and so it could be after his death. I LOVE this! its picture mania! It’s getting me so excited about this!! (not that i wasnt already) I just want more and more and more and more! WOOHOO! <3

Avatar Image says:

OMG finally! Amazing pics! I knew they would suprise us with a huge update of pictures!

Avatar Image says:

I am so envious of everyone who’s not at work right now! I can’t wait to get home so I can spend all night indulging in all the new pictures. Luna’s is the only one I’ve looked at so far because she’s my favorite character – and it was well worth it!!!!

Only thing is, is it just me or do the Spectrespecs look MSPaint’d onto her face? LOL :D Either way it’s an AWESOME pic.

Avatar Image says:

Wow – Luna’s hair is sooooooo long! Quite pretty.

Elder Wand!!! Love it!

Avatar Image says:

This pic is part of the Empire magazine article, the one The Sun reported about yesterday, and after reading the real interview, it’s obvious that tabloid changed all Daniel and David said. For example, this is the real quote of Dan:

“Sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll? Thanks, David, that’s a comment I’ll have to fend off for months”, laughs Daniel Radcliffe later. “There’s obviously no sex in the book, it’s all subtext, but there is a fair amount of sexual energy and there are some drug parallels. We have a couple of what David calls our ‘Trainspotting moments’. That’s two films I never thought would be mentioned in the same breath . . . There’s a great balance. The light parts are lighter than before, and the dark parts are extremely dark … ”.

So all those people who talked too much yesterday before reading the real interview can eat their words now.

This is why I’m a luna/harry shipper. Luna is so much more of an interesting character.

Avatar Image says:

Luna looks amazing. Her hair grew, and now she’s got epic glasses.

Avatar Image says:

Solo, what you describe as “interesting”, I would describe as “bizarre.” And that is why I’m NOT a Harry/Luna shipper. Who wants the hero of the story to end up with the resident freak?

Avatar Image says:

wow, a really funny pic and a really sad one! i dont know if I should laugh or cry or both!

Avatar Image says:

Solo I couldn’t agree more. Michelle_31a opened my eyes to a whole new world of awesome.

Avatar Image says:

Luna stays a young girl while Ginny is after the boys. Everyone grows up differently and in their own way. The pictures are great.

Avatar Image says:

WOW , hbp begins ! What an awesome pic of luna ! Evanna just IS luna, amazing, love it. I also see the problem with harry having the elder wand?? Maybe he puts it with dumbledore for the funeral? They surely can’t change that!? it must be in DD’s tomb !! Reaaaaaalllly want the trailer now WB !!

Avatar Image says:

She looks fabulous ! I think the scene of Harry and Prof. M. will be quite a tearjerker if handled correctly.

Really beginning to look forward to this.

Avatar Image says:

Did anyone else noticed Luna’s on the train in this pic? Probably saying hi to Harry. And some people say the movies don’t follow the books! They throw hissy fits if one small detail is changed(Oh no! That character that’s relevant only in this movie for only once or two scenes is in the wrong class! Now the movie’s nothing like the book! or Ginny can’t tie a shoelace! She must get out a maggot!) but completely ignore all the larger more important story points the movies get absolutely right.

Avatar Image says:

I love them! Luna is hilarious! I bet the one of Harry and McGonagall is just after Dumbledore’s death. That is the headmaster’s office right?

Avatar Image says:

Hahah now I want some Spectrespecs. And Check out Luna’s hair. It looks awesome. Can’t wait for this movie!!!!! All these photo’s are so great, but they’re getting me all excited!

Avatar Image says:

I’d be happy in this case if there was more luna. I was really disappointed in how little there was of Luna and Neville , especially after OotP. If they can use the main actors more, by putting them in scenes instead of using strangers or stand ins, that’s fine by me.

I agree with Solo, i thought LUna would have been cute with Harry. She seemed to be able to make him feel better and more at peace, and lord knows, he needed that.

Avatar Image says:

HAHA, that Luna picture is awesome. I love Evanna as Luna. I do NOT see her with Harry, though, for the exactly what this picture shows: she’s too odd for him. They’re not right at all. He needs and wants someone more down to earth.

I love her though. :D

I like the picture of Harry with the Elder Wand too… that’s pretty intense.

Avatar Image says:

Oh… She’s the best…!

Avatar Image says:

with all news…....so many im going CRAZZYYYYYYYYYYY

Avatar Image says:

LUNA!!!!! HoorAYYY! That new just made my day!!!! (Hah, I rhymed.) Seriously though, Luna looks absolutely spectacular, and I’m glad they put some canon in the film! (Spectrespecs… hee heee! And, she’s wearing the Radish earrings!) Evanna is just brilliant, and I’m so glad that they picked her for Luna! Luna is my very favourite character, and if they had picked an actress that had ruined her… shudder I’m SO looking forward to her commentating the Quidditch match, and her and Harry at Slughorn’s party.

Avatar Image says:

why in that pic of harry and Mcgonagall harry is holding dumbledore’s wand?

Avatar Image says:

Robyn- When Draco expelliarmised (sp?) Dumbledore on top of the astronomy tower, his wand landed on the ground. Harry probably picks it up the same time he picks up the locket. Just my guess anyway :)

Avatar Image says:

LOVE Luna, that’s amazing! Looks like she’s on the Hogwarts Express there

Avatar Image says:

OMG! Look at how HUMONGOUS!!!! Draco’s feet are in that picture! Did he take a foot groowth potion or something? OMG!

Avatar Image says:

im so happy because of all the pix i just cant wait till the movie comes out

Avatar Image says:

DragonRider I noticed that too about Draco’s feet, his shoes look like they are WAY too big for him.

Avatar Image says:

Luna’s the best girl in the books!!!!She’s my favourite.

Avatar Image says:

LUNA LOVEGOOD!!! EVANNA LYNCH!!! You’re so CUTE wearing that Spectre glasses :-D

Avatar Image says:

I thought it was about time for HBP hype to start. As a Maggie Smith/McG fan I hope there’s a decent amount of Minerva in this movie, but I don’t see it happening – mainly because there’s so little MM in the book, and they did drastically reduce MM’s role in the film of OoTP (stunners, anyone?). But I am looking forward to more Luna and Neville… I’m not a Harry/Luna shipper, but there’s some justification – there’s lots of lovely little Harry/Luna moments, and I noticed in DH it was Luna who noticed things were getting on top of Harry at the end. Doesn’t she end up with Dean eventually though? Cos there’s a Dean/Luna moment in DH as well… rambles completely off topic I wonder when the HBP trailer will be released?

Avatar Image says:

wow luna you so cute in your spectacles!! btw,, add me up in y.m. [email protected] im from philippines…

Avatar Image says:

Oh My Goodness! Luna is my favourite character! I thunk she is great! And I love Evanna playing her because she is from Ireland just like me! And I would love to star in a HP movie!

Avatar Image says: Luna Lovegood<3<3<3<3! Like you said, the best character ever!:D:DAvatar Imageheliotrope says: I LOVED Luna's outfits they were PERFECT!! :D
