    LOVE the new one of Draco, and Ron’s expression is priceless “What the heck was I thinking????” LOL. Not in love with the new Quidditch gear, however, but oh, well. Who the heck are all the rest of the people behind him in what looks like Gryffindor Quidditich uniforms, too? Or are the other students now wearing Quidditch “jerseys” for team moral support like we do at football games, etc.?

    You know how they said the Inferi had too little skin stretched over too many bones? Draco Malfoy’s ‘do seems to consist of too little hair stretched over too much head. I think it’d look a little better if his hair was longer, but I have to say, I have NEVER seen Tom Felton look so much like Draco Malfoy. I’m really excited about him having a bigger role in this film, because his role was teeny-tiny in the 4th and 5th films, and pretty darn small in the third one, as well.

    Luna looks awesome, too! But it makes me laugh that Lav-Lav’s hair is fluffier than Hermione’s. Oh, and Matt Lewis is adorkable as always. _ I love him. I hope he gets a good role in this movie. It was a bit of an anticlimax when I read the 6th book and realized Neville didn’t do much in the book (despite being awesome in the previous installment.)

    I’ve just come across this picture on this site, I haven’t seen it before but don’t know if it’s new or not. It seems to be of Harry in a field with the lake in the background. Let me know what you all think! http://guides.clickthecity.com/movies/?p=2406

    you know what…all of those pics are great but I am sick and tired of Warner Brothers and the producers always changing everything!!Romilda Vane as a sixth year?Neville in NEWTS potions?Slughorn thin(well,kinda)and with no walrus moustache?Why??Have they ever tried to stick to the material?I mean how can they explain the fact that there are now two new students in the same year with Harry?The only thing that made me happy was that Harry is holding the Elder Wand in that pic…then again he shouldn’t be holding it!oh well.I hope this film turns out to be good and not a silly comedy with teenagers snogging.Mark my words fellow Potterfans,the way I see it,the DH films may as well be different beyond recognition and noone will have voiced their displeasure(so many details have changed now,that most elements of the DH plot will be impossible to preserve in the films).It is up to us,fans, to kindly point out that some things are just very different.I am a little disapppointed but still looking forward to this film.:)

    (goes off to photoshop the spectrespecs onto Draco’s face) It’ll be awesome haha. AND OH MY GOD! DeathlyH has a picture of Draco emo-ing on a staircase!!!! (hugs Deathly H through the cyberspatial ether) Lots of Draco! A look at Slughorn and Luna’s specs! Today is bloody brilliant. _

    since when did Neville take N.E.W.T. level potion. Love the look that LavLav is giving Miss Granger

    Avatar Image says:

    LemonFaerie—I agree about the hoard behind Ron in that picture. That is a BIG team. The little leather helmet is HILARIOUS, and much needed methinks. The Ministry must have passed some sort of helmet law…

    Thank you Leaky for posting all of this!!!

    I NEVER complain about what characters look like…but they really messed up Slughorn. I mean, he looks nothing like he’s described, and so much of his character comes through his mustache and weight. I’m sure Jim Broadbent will do great, though.

    What a great start to a long weekend!

    Avatar Image says:

    Quidditch tryouts anyone? I believe that is what the new Ron in gear pic is of with all those people behind him.

    Its like we’ve been waiting 2 years for a bus and 20 turn up at once. WUUUHUUUUU Something at last.

    Marjory – thats a promo shot from OOTP :-)

    I’m confused with the quiditch shot…I could be wrong, but isn’t number 1 the seekers number? Or is it the keepers? Its been a while since I’ve read the books so I’m foggy on that part :-) Are the numbers correct? I know its a petty thing and I’m not upset by it….just curious.

    Thanks WB for sharing…....at last!

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS PICTURE OF DRACO ROCKS!!! HE’S ALL GROWN UP!!!

    Avatar Image says:

    Wow, Ron’s helmet looks really stupid. But I think Ron and the whole quidditch deal is meant to be a comedic aspect so maybe that was done on purpose.

    And did anyone else notice that Tom Felton in the newest picture has the skinniest ankles and the BIGGEST feet ever! How can he walk? Honestly! I love him though so it just makes me laugh but man alive….

    Holy fricken crap, they’re trying to give us heart attacks! This is AWESOME!

    I agree that the pic with Ron in quidditch gear with a lot of people behind him is the tryouts. I was looking at the potions pic (not going to get started on who shouldn’t be there) but I was noticing that there is nice resemblence between Lav-lav and hermoine. Look close. There are similar features.

    Avatar Image says:

    Ron looks hot in his quidditch clothes. But he also looks nervous. Draco looks ok. Man all of these new photos in just one day. I wouldn’t be surprised if they released either more photos or the trailer. I hope we get more pictures. Maybe we will get on of ron and lavander or something like that. Pictures keep on coming.

    Avatar Image says:

    WHAT?! WHAT?! WHAT! Where is his mustache?! I’ve been waiting three years for my favorite character to come on screen, and they deliver Jim Broadbent in a wizard’s hat?! They didn’t think to maybe make him LOOK LIKE his character? I am infuriated.

    Wow – I cannot believe the onslaught of pictures today ! Beautiful ! And I must take time to agree and clarify a few things if my memory serves…

    1. Yes, I do agree that we are seeing a picture of Quidditch tryouts. The team is not that large and they are not spectators either.

    2. They did not seem to capture the Horace Slughorn as JKR wrote his description, (enormously fat, walrus moustache, bald.) However, it would take a large ” fatsuit ” to make one ” enormously fat ”, a balding cap unless Mr. Broadbent was nice enough to shave his entire head, and fake moustaches look…fake. I think that even if ” the look ” isn’t quite up to par, it will take the skill and experience that Mr. Broadbent has to capture the persona of Horace Slughorn, and for that, we will have to wait. I do not doubt his ability.

    3. Yes, Harry is holding the Elder Wand. And yes, it MUST be introduced to film audiences for its importance to be signficant enough for DH. I am sure they will have Harry place the wand with Dumbledore at the funeral. Remember, he has a conversation with McGonagall in DD’s office prior to the funeral. That is the photo we see.

    4. I am quite quite sure they have left in Harry and Ginny’s ” big blazing kiss ”. They are just trying to ramp up the tension between the two with an ” almost kiss ” at Christmastime. I am sure we’ll see Ron glaring in the background somewhere in the film. I’ll just miss Mrs. Weasley turning up ” A Hot Cauldron full of Love ” just to annoy Fleur. ! LOL !

    5. I love the photo of Draco. I would almost bet it is where he is watching everyone go to Sluggy’s party….

    6. Did no one notice how much better Dumbledore looks????? His beard is longer, his hair is whiter and longer and straighter ! He looks great !! Let’s hope HIS acting is up to par this time around !

    Oh drat, i had more but now I’m on the phone….

    I’m pretty sure that the quidditch picture is from tryouts, that is why everyone is wearing the same scrimage jerseys. The actual uniforms seem pretty cool.

    Harry Potter pandamonium is my favorite type of pandamonium!!

    Marjory, the picture you linked to looks like an “Order of the Phoenix” screen shot during the scene where Harry sees his father bullying Snape in Snape’s memory. It looks like the same clothes he was wearing, and the same expression on his face from that movie. I also believe the scene took place near the lake. Thanks for sharing, though! :)

    With the number system on the uniforms, does anyone else think they are moving quidditch tryouts to this movie instead of OotP. There are other number 2’s. Could the number 2’s all be trying for the keeper position.

I love it though…

    What’s the deal with Draco’s pointy toe shoes, they look about 2 or 3 inches longer than his feet?

    Or, perhaps it is an indication of subtler more hidden assets?

Anyway, does anyone think that the #’s on the shirts of the quidditch players mean that they are going to try out together? like in the book they were in groups, so im assuming those are what the #’s are for. lol and draco was just as hansome as eva! and i so agree with PJB, if you blow up the pic of slughorns potion class u will see that lav- lav looks so pissed of at hermione.lol! that is just hilarious, love it!

    Nicci—I noticed a resemblance between Lavender and Hermione, too!

    To whoever pointed out Draco’s huge feet and scrawny ankles—that made me laugh! However, I’m sixteen years old, and most of my guy friends are at that stage right now; I have to say it’s unfortunately not that uncommon.

    Gargh, why is Dumbledore wearing the same grey nightgown as always? However, his hair and beard seem to be a lot more white than grey, which is a welcome improvement from the third and fourth and fifth films. Anyone else notice that?

    I laughed so hard at whoever made the comment about Draco’s huge feet and scrawny ankles, but I have to say, I’m sixteen, and most of my guy friends are at that stage right now. So it’s not that unusual, I guess!

    Dumbledore’s hair and beard looks great, but I’m still upset about his stupid dirty old grey nightgown.

    There seams to be a lot of quidditch players in uniform. There is only meant to be seven players to a team. Or is it the trials? Mmm…

    Okay, that picture of Luna is so totally on the train! I mean, look to the side of her. Those look like compartment doors or something.

    Avatar Image says:

    I’m so ecstatic with everything we’ve seen and heard about HBP so far. So they have a few details off.. when do they not?! Yates has included some of my favourite book moments and he seems to be bringing HBP to life in a beautiful and entertaining way! And all the casting has been soo perfect, IMO. I’m so glad he’s staying! :D

    I’m sure the quidditch photo is from the try-outs, but not the ones that were supposed to be OotP. There were tryouts in HBP too, with Harry as captain. The rest of the picture look great too.

    the one of harry and hermione looks sad almost like its after the death butt… its a winter scene so i cant figure out were the picture is set!

    lol bunsen burners in potion class. Tell me WB do wizards need gas to make fire? Jim Broadbent looks nothing like what I imagined slughorn to be. I was hopeing they would make a bit of an effort.

    Avatar Image says:

    Oh, wow. I miss just one day of not coming to Leaky and I find all these goodies! xD I love how Draco looks. He actually looks like the Draco in my imagination when I read the books. I also love the new Quidditch uniforms. I dunno, the old ones looked kinda kiddish to me. These look like real sports gear. LOL at Ron’s love-struck face. I guess that’s the scene where he ate Romilda’s spiked cauldron cakes? Rupert did a great job with that expression. Ron really looks enchanted there…like he’s off in another world.

    Ugh…yet another Harry/Hermione winter pic? XD They’re making that the recurring theme in these movies. They really made Harry and Hermione as close friends in the movies, huh? Perhaps a little too close…but at least the H/Hr shippers are happy. xD

    Slughorn really does not look like how I picture him lol. I like the picture of Draco though and Yates directing Dan and Bonnie.

    Avatar Image says:

    Those have got to be the Quidditch scrimmage uniforms in the hi-res pictures, and that would be at the tryouts where Ron keeps messing up because he’s so nervous. The real Quidditch uniforms are much the same as they always have been, if you take a look at the “Empire” photos. Harry, Ginny, Ron, and a few others in the background are dressed for the pre-game breakfast in the red and gold sweaters they’ve always had.

    Avatar Image says:

    What’s the deal with Draco’s pointy toe shoes, they look about 2 or 3 inches longer than his feet?

    Or, perhaps it is an indication of subtler more hidden assets?

    Avatar Image says:

    Thank you! We finally have some pictures. Months and months of waiting! Finally!Now to choose which will become my new laptop wallpaper…..

    Avatar Image says:

    Still love the pics, and I have Dittany for everyone. Major post-splinching going on tonight! Wow. :) But I have some (possibly) disappointing news, if a poster at mugglenet is to be believed. There’s a new rumor about the trailer being in front of The Mummy and NOT Dark Knight. That equals an extra two whole weeks of waiting! I cannot take anymore!

    Avatar Image says:

    Remember today is the 4th of July so the trailer might air tonight during the Harry Potter marathon on ABC Family. Don’t forget! There is hope we will get the trailer today! Otherwise we wait 16 days till the Dark Knight is released.

    Avatar Image says:

    Is it just me or did anyone else notice that Draco pointing his wand in what looks like Dumbledore’s office, followed by a shot of Dumbledore sitting on the steps of his office…I’m thinking they replaced the Astronomy Tower with Dumbledore’s office… I really hope not as I personally doubt that Dumbledore’s office is that easily accessible, but alas, it probably is that scene.

    I so did not envision Slughorn to look like that. I mean, he can do without the moustache, but his baldness and enormously fat should have stayed! Personally, I imagined him having a big belly…

    What’s with everyone double, triple, and quadruple posting? Clicking “Post” more than once?

    I’ll splinch myself about the Harry/Hermione photo @radcakesfan : Yeah don’t Dan and Emma look adorwable, him with itsy bitsy stubble, her with cwute fweckles.

    THAT. IS. NOT. PROFESSOR. SLUGHORN.

    I mean, I know it’s supposed to be, but heck, Michael Gambon is supposed to be Dumbledore.

    Avatar Image says:

    but… where is Slughorn’s moustache?? What?? How?? This is just the director changing everything again (Neville in Newts Potions Class, Romilda Vane in the same year as the trio). Has anyone noticed that David Yates tends to do this more than the other directors did? That was one of the main reasons I was so disappointed and annoyed that not only was he returning for Half Blood Prince but for Deathly Hallows as well. I mean I was really glad he was having it split into two parts but even so… he has a tendancy to make things incredibly cheesy… Has anyone else noticed that Katie Bell is also in the NEWTs potions class? (she’s the one to the right of Hermione) Even though she’s meant to be in the year above? And even though the pic of all the quidditch players is most probably the tri-outs why on earth are they all wearing quidditch gear?? You don’t get quidditch gear when you arrive at the school, you get it if you join the team and as each team consists of seven players and in the picture there’s about ten, it’s more likely that it’s the tri-outs. Unless it’s another of David Yate’s specialities? Right end of the rant. When can we get the trailer?

    Avatar Image says:

    Great pictures!

    Slughorn’s picture I agree a bit disappointing with no moustache. Maybe this is a rehearsal picture, like Harry sometimes doesn’t have his glasses on??

    Ron’s quidditch uniform, wow he looks a d*ck LOL! Maybe that’s why he has that expression. It does look like the tryouts. I agree all the 2s are prospective Keepers.

    Ron’s lovelorn expression is absolutely hilarious!!

    I love the pics of Harry/Hermione and Harry/Ginny!

    LOVE the pic of DD, this looks like the moment he has lost his wand and has slumped down. And the picture of Draco pointing the wand is in the same place? It does look like the astronomy tower.

    I agree Draco’s shows are looking huge.

    Avatar Image says:

    sorry meant to say shoes not shows…

    Avatar Image says:

    And so it begins!!! Is that Draco in the room of requirement? How pretty does Emma Watson look in that winter picture, Ron all geared up for tryouts- hilarious, and the lovelorn one, shame Slughorn doesn’t have the big moustache

    BTW, it seems they’re gonna put Romilda Vane in sixth year with Harry & Co, instead of in fourth year. I don’t know if someone thinks the same as me, but Ron looks kind of ridiculous with the Quidditch gear!! XD I think it’s something about the helmet…

    Jinkies!!! I nearly fainted from HBP pics overload. I am so happy that we’ve got pics!!! Am all excited now!!! squee!!! Though I thought it was funny, I was checking Leaky every couple of hours a few days ago and then when I’m busy with work and other stuff all this comes… but as they say a watched kettle never boils…

    Thanks so much Leaky!!! This is brilliant!!!

    Avatar Image says:

    LOL! They should have let out a Hermione jealousy pic.

    Avatar Image says:

    Commenting on the ’ Winter ” pic of Harry and Hermione…there’s no doubt that is where they are returning from Hogsmeade and have just witnessed what happened to Katie Bell !! My goodness ! We say we know the books and then assume these pics are not canon !! Why????

    And Dumbledore in his office…No, he does not look sick and weak from the cave or from Draco. This is probably where is is telling Harry about Horcruxes !!

    If anyone ever took a film class they would know you cannot film a book and do justice to every character if you leave them within the pages they were written. We would NEVER see Neville if he was not included in this class, whatever the class, as he does not feature prominently in HBP. So Romilda Vane is there as well…so what? How do we really know that is Romilda??? IS that verified?

    And I say again….lets see how Jim Broadbent acts before judging. ANd NO !! We do NOT want Cuaron back at all !! We’ll have freakin giraffes and monkeys and deadheads everywhere if that happened ! Sheesh !

    Avatar Image says:

    Yeah, Ron really looks dumb in that helmet. But, where are D’s glasses? nice they made his hair whiter, but why here and in OotP isn’t he wearing his glasses? (If he has a magical way of fixing his eyes, u’d think he’d fix Harry’s.) And, not shown here, but in every movie Harry wears gloves in Quidditch, so how are they going to explain the snitch’s “flesh memory” in DH?

    Avatar Image says:

    Rupert! OMG OMG OMG OMG ! I freaking love you. :) I couldn’t comment at all yesterday for some stupid reason. GRR! Anyway, I love the new pictures. =) Luna is definitely on the Hogwarts Express – you can just tell. Draco looks … yummy. (x And Slughorn is a little too thin. =[

    Avatar Image says:

    People care about appearance way, way, way, way, way, way too much. Also claiming that Ron going to be just comic relief in the movie by seeing 3 or 4 pictures. PICTURES!? NOT EVEN HEARING LINES OR SEEING VIDEO!!!! Ridiculous! Read the interviews people! Ever character’s motivation is described by the cast and crew as being exactly the way they are in this book! People being so quick to judge and making poor judgments ignoring or forgetting facts about the movie you already know and misinterpreting quotes. It’s enough to drive a person crazy!

    Avatar Image says:

    I think it actually makes more sense to make Romilda Vane a 6th year for the movie. It allows her to be in more scenes with Harry, Ron, and Hermoine, including the ones in class. Also, I always found it weird and creepy for a 4th year to be chasing Harry so fervently in the book. Making her the same age (16) takes some of the awkwardness out of it. It’s a small change and I think it works for the movie.

    Avatar Image says:

    You know, the more I look at that photo of Draco holding up the wand, the more it looks like he’s in some sort of Astronomy room. It must be the scene that’s supposed to take place ON TOP of the Astronomy tower. They better not have changed that scene and made Dumbledore just collapse onto the floor rather than fall over the battlements. What do you guys think????

    so im not so much of a fan of felton or dans hair its…ugh. and what is neville doing in potions.!! other that im so looking forward to seeing Rupert Grints love-sick part. =)

    The really hot harry and hermione pic is on IMDB front page- snapshots section. They obviously liked the pairing, it is a nice pic of the two. Thet do look good together.

    Max, thanks for the heads up. It’s being used in a lot of websites/blogs in the same way beside the headline. It’s a damn beautiful photo.

    Scully- hah- they would make pretty babies. But I’m not the one having conniptions and panic attacks over that picture like some of the mentally challenged elsewhere . I’m getting a lot of amusement out of their comments . Fer gosh’s sake, they’re just standing beside each other.

    I also don't much care  what they are looking at, it could be anything.    Just give me more pictures and behind the scenes of that scene please.

    wow. i love new half-blood prince pix. you have no idea how many times a day i ask “is it november 21 yet!”. can’t wait but i hear that they are making some changes that never happened in the book. like harry and ginny kissing and then death eaters showing up!!!!!!!!!!!!!! oh and in the pic of dan and emma you can so tell dan iz a man now. you can see his facial hair coming in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! S-E-X-Y!

    “ok im thrilled about the movie but did they really have to change that much of the book. What is Neville, Lav, and Dean thomas(behind professor) doing in the potions pic? And how rediculous are those quidditch outfits. But i still cant wait” You think that’s that much? Wow. It’s hardly significant enough to mention. If that turns out to be the worst complaint about how different this movie is from the book then this will be the closest to the book yet.

    “Really like the new pics! But will someone please tell the costume department to get rid of that same old potato sack they keeping Michael Gambon to wear.

    Gambon wears a beautiful purple/slivery robe with lots of detail. Please take a look at this photo and you will see all the intricate work that when into his “potato sack”. http://www.oclumencia.com.br/galeria/albums/19/promocionais-odf-oclumencia_com_br_%2811%29.jpg It’s wonderfully clothing and much better than the stiff box robes Harris wore. This is my un-pompous Dumbledore.

    Is that Cormac McLaggen over Ron’s left shoulder (to our right) in the Quidditch tryouts pic? It looks kind of like the guy they were saying got the part.

    Avatar Image says:

    LOve the Harry and Hermione pic. But oddly unsettling too. it’s so hi res that I can see the “flaws” of these beautiful kids. Dan seems to be hairy. His stubble is just all over his jaw and neck. And poor Emma. I didn’t know she had freckles. It’s a little unsightly. Growing up can be such a b—-ch.

    Avatar Image says:

    LOve the Harry and Hermione pic too. sigh…if only these two ended up in the movie. I still can’t swallow the H/G affair. It doesn’t help that Bonnie Wright looks like a washed up nobody beside Emma Watson.

    Avatar Image says:

    I hope Bonnie acts perfectly so she can convince us that she IS Ginny… And @ all those who want to pair Dan and Emma…yes, Emma is a good-looking girl but when you are friends with someone for so many years and at some point during tose years you fell in love with sb else (see Cho)..you wont see your friend the way other people do…But for Ron..who fell in love with Hermione too soon (even before he actually realised it) it was different.. I just hope Dan and Bonnie have good chemistry in it..I mean,they did look good in OotP (thank Yates for that!!)...I have much confidence in Dan! I think he is going to make it work..he’s becoming a good proffesional..look at the pics..he is in character in each and everyone of them..Even in the one with the Quidditch team in the great hall..he seems to be annoyed by Ron’s lack of self-confidence..

    PS: Give us more pictures and a trailer please!!

    Avatar Image says:

    I dont think hes holding the elder wand…any who cares? Lets first watch the film before! Any great pictures

    The thing is, Hermione is not supposed to be this stunning beauty in the first place. Besides that looks, shouldn’t be what counts when it comes to real love anyway.

    Dan and Emma do look good together, but I think Dan/Bonnie as well as Rupert/Emma aren’t too hard on the eyes either. We know Rupert and Emma can pull off the R/Hr tension and everything perfectly. I have trust that Dan and Bonnie will bring across the evolving feelings between Harry/Ginny spot on as well. Dan is a fantastic actor and in the few scenes she was given so far, Bonnie was quite convincing also.

    I don’t mind so much that Slughorn doesn’t look exactly like he’s described in the book. As long as the actor brings across his character appropriately. I’m also not annoyed that they are having students in sixth year Potions class which shouldn’t be there (Neville, Lavender, Romilda Vane). The WB have always changed around a lot and in comparison to their character butchering (coughPoAandGoFRoncough), this change is a minor thing, IMO.

    Avatar Image says:

    Robyn and Chanel, gotta agree with you there. It will be interesting to see Bonnie in this movie because she’s been in it so little thus far. Can’t see how people could judge her acting for that very reason.

    Regarding Emma’s freckles, she has so few, i don’t see them as being bothersome at all. Now if it was Lindsey Lohan , now she has a problem with it , but really, even then it’s not that ugly or disfiguring. The problem I have with freckles is that it indicates sun exposure, which may mean leathery old skin and skin cancer.( Now THAT is ugly. ) Canon-wise, Ron needs to have tons of freckles which the actor doesn’t which means we will never get to have that very funny scene.

    As for Dan’s stubble, I love it and the amount. Obviously we’ve seen him in the Equus pictures but It’s the first time i’ve seen it in the HP photos and it’s amazing when you think of him as the little boy and now the grown up maturing adult.

    Avatar Image says:

    Chanel – thankfully JKR wrote her characters to be a little less shallow than your comments about Bonnie Wright indicate you to be.

    What’ll I write?They’re just like a few drops of rain after a long hot days. Just FABULOUS. I like Ron however he looks.Here it’s the real expression on his face what he had to have.I couldn’t found the pic of lav lav.where is it? I’m so excited to see her. And I’m not going to see the quidditch match if it’s a comedy scene.

    Avatar Image says:

    Forget Emma’s freckles. She has a mustache!!!! UGH!!!

    Avatar Image says:

    I can’t believe the comments of some people! What is wrong with having freckles? Oh and Radcakesfan freckles do not necessary mean sun exposure. Some people just have them. I think its a great shot of Dan and Emma but, like most things, people read way to much into it.

    In fact I am happy with all the pics. But have to say, Draco is looking fantastic! And I mean that in the sense he is looking particually mean and spiteful! The big fuss over Nevile and Romilda being in potions...please, Who cares?!!! Really, all it will do is make it easier for those who havent read the books to keep up with what is going on. And surely thats a good thing?
    Avatar Image says:

    Uhm, yeah, I personally find Emma’s freckles actually very cute. There is nothing wrong with freckles in the first place. And she doesn’t have a mustache, she just has a bit of a ‘ladie’s beard’. I know our society is obsessed with completely hairless skin, thank you Hollywood, but it’s really nothing to go ewww over. Forgetting about your daily hygiene or not washing your clothes regularly is ewww. Emma is not. Just let her be, please.

    Avatar Image says:

    Nicely said, katz and galadriel12. My child has numerous freckles – nothing to do with sun exposure or anything. He just got them one day! I loathe how ridiculous our society has become about anyone who is outside of the so-called norm.

    I thought she looked lovely, as usual. And so did Dan, as usual.

    Avatar Image says:

    ‘ear ‘ear katz, bebe, and galadriel12. I have freckles and I NEVER go outside. I personally think Emma’s are cute. And everyone has a little hair on their faces, nothing to fuss over.

    Also, it really doesn’t matter that Neville and Romilda are in NEWT level potions, as the film probably won’t even touch on that subject as it doesn’t really advance the plot. Plus, it’s a good way to give them more screen time.

    Avatar Image says:

    the deep in thought Draco pic is wonderful – he looks scared and determined at the same time and Ron with the heart box – hahahah

    Avatar Image says:

    I know katz et al, I don’t think freckles are ugly or just due to tanning. it’s just when I see photos of lindsay lohan and others sunbathing, alarm bells go off, especially when they are as fair skinned as they are.

    Going back re Romilda, I hope to see a lot of scenes between her and Harry myself- should be very funny.

    Avatar Image says:

    WOOOOOOH, piccs :-D Ive been checking here every day for ages to find something like this :-D they get me so excited ! Cant wait for the trailer and movie now :-D You guys rock :-D

    It does make sense that that Ron picture would be tryouts – but I hope the expression on his face is the one we’ll see when Harry and Ginny kiss.

    Avatar Image says:

    I burst out laughing with the Luna pic. I really like the Draco pics..he just looks…cool.

    I think they will pull off the movie well. Looking back at OOTP…Yates did a fine job of compressing a HUGE book with so much information into a manageable movie that moved along quite well. He really is the man for the part as he seems to capture emotions well.

    For the lone person who metioned Cauron to direct DH..um no… sorry he isn’t doing it. Thank you for playing. Move on.

    Avatar Image says:

    I’m sure they could have made Slughorn look more like the description in the book! He has too much hair on his head and not enough on his face. And as usual, HP’s hair isn’t nearly messy enough! In fact he looks like he needs to shave too. He’s growing up so fast _!
