Andrews McMeel, publishers of the US editons of the Harry Potter calendars, have now updated their website with new photos from the 2009 “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” items. As seen starting here in our image galleries, you can see the covers of a few, as well as a new photo of Dumbledore and what seems to be the locket of Slytherin.

Thanks to UHP for mailing.

First comment I think. Yay! Anyway, meh. There ok I suppose, nothing exciting, there sti using that horrible picture of harry on every calender. But the cave scene ooks soooo epic!

Avatar Image says:

love the draco one.. he looks like he all sweet and innocent.. lol..

Avatar Image says:

Wow all the ones of Dan look so photoshopped. His chin looks all weird too. Dunmbledore looks awsome though. Draco looks hot

Avatar Image says:

maybe this is just me being crazy, but has Dan ALWAYS had a cleft in his chin? am i JUST noticing that??

Avatar Image says:

That better be the fake locket because we know what the real locket looks like (from the book 7 cover) and that one in the photo looks nothing like it. :(

Avatar Image says:

i hope thats not the real locket!! better be fake.lol

Avatar Image says:

Oh my god…it almost seems as though they’re not even trying to sell calenders with all of their cheesy photoshoped images…all those pictures of Harry/Dan look as if they’ve been cut out and put on crappy stationary you can get at a dollar store and are made for little children to make thank-you-notes!!! As for the locket…It’s supposed to have the S for Slytherin on it!! It doesn’t look like anything Voldemort would dare touch…let alone keep a part of his soul in it!! How un-Slytherin-ish can you get?? Ah well…at least it’s not shaped like a heart or anything and how can we possibly expect anything good from the WB after their HBP delay (even though it happened a long time ago, I can’t help but carrying on…it’s in my nature!).

Avatar Image says:

Agreed on the locket. And no promo picture ever shows the withered hand. Guess that’s a spoiler for ‘movie-only’ people.

Avatar Image says:

locket looks sooooo wrong and what the heck is up with that harry picture???? if WB doesnt make this movie better than it sound and make it the best movie they have EVER made,i am gonna be PISSED

Avatar Image says:

All the complaints, aside: When is this calendar going to be available? All the calendars [well, most of them] for 2009 are out! I want one! [photoshopped or not] MY personal opinion is they look fine! I guess I’m just not the picky type! As for the locket, it looks like it will be the “fake”...I don’t see ‘Slythern’s Mark’ I think Deb is right…it may be another one of the “spoilers for the movie-only people” things…..JMHO

Avatar Image says:

the locket has to be the fake one left inthe basin inthe cave by Kreacher on Regulus’ orders and not the locket of Sytherin, as it bears no resemblence to the descrition given in the book, the only other possibility i can think of for no serpentine s on it is that that is the back of the locket but how dumb would the guy taking the pics have to be to do that, so its my opinion that this locket is the one that Brave Regulus and Kreacher put in the basin in the cave by the sea, when Kreacher took the real Locket, come july of next year ill be proved wrong or right or perhaps sooner if we get more locket pics

Avatar Image says:

Maybe it’s not the Slytherin locket, I can’t remember exactly but maybe it’s the one Katie Bell touch and gets jinxed, but I can’t remember if it was a locket or not… Can anyone help me with this one?

Avatar Image says:

@Hogwartsmallville: Katie Bell touched a NECKLACE made with opals.

Avatar Image says:

U can also see the ring of Slytherin!

Avatar Image says:

While that’s true, Confederate, which is the worse delusion on this one until we get confirmation of what that is? That they screwed up the necklace that cursed Katie Bell, or that they COMPLETELY destroyed Slytherin’s Locket?

I’ll take that they screwed up the necklace…

Avatar Image says:

Merlin´s pants! that picture of Dan is way too photoshopped… and I dont get why they did that! Him and Emma have been chosen two of the sexiest actors and actresses younger than 25… why photoshop them? And I really hope that’s the fake locket… its horrible!

Avatar Image says:

about dan being photoshopped, i saw the recent pics of equuis. that boy is looking about TWENTY-SIX these days… lol. i can understand if they’re trying to make him look younger. but his age is ok.. that means they’ll be able to use him for the last movie AND the epilog.

Avatar Image says:

Not much new, we’ve seen all of these promo shots already, but the one of Draco is new and actually appears to be from the movie, so woot.

Avatar Image says:

How come I am not happy with these pictures? I’m sorry, but they are all horribly done/edited. The only one I like is Draco’s. The rest are … yeah.

Avatar Image says:

still cant believe we actually have something, you know. i think the hp community should send a mental hug to the calender guys. way to put it our on the market anyway. whoot for you!!!!! the pix—eh, nothing we really havent seen. micahel gambon still looks like a rodent. oh, they so ruined his character…. draco was hot as usualy, but still dont understand the photoshop thing. i mean, dan is gorgeous! why do they try to make him lool 13 yrs old? sheesh…

Avatar Image says:

some people expressed their believe that the locket can only be the fake one, because the real one is at the cover of the adult edition…. ??.... since when has THAT to be canon version of the locket and since when has WB felt itself bound by canon facts in picturing lots of things or persons. Take the Twins forinstance, short and sturdy in the canon, they became the tall and gangly Phelps-twins in the movie. When WB decides to go with this for the locket we will have to live with it.

must say the one on the cover has more style, and is even modest compaired to this rather loud and ugly one.

Avatar Image says:

Wow… if that… thing… is the locket, then Voldemort has a really tacky taste in jewelery…

Avatar Image says:

i hope that isnt the locket, i agree with you all but harry saw the real locket in the pensieve and would recognise it immediatly if it were that different it may be the cursed locket given to katie, they may develop that more, or maybe some groovy pocket watch dumbledore now carries with him lol, they add some random crap into the films (“I LOVE MAGIC” pfft) instead of the real story (TONKS FINDS HARRY ON TRAIN

ok rant over, the pics look good though

One reason they are dull-at least for me-is that Hermione has for one reason or another totally disappeared from this movie. It’s not just me—-lots of people have noticed it. My own theory is that they have to build Ginny up big time for this, if Harry is going to fall for her, and the last thing they need are pictures of Emma Watson floating around. She’s just too pretty.

I guess it doesn’t matter. Rowling really deconstructed Hermione in this particular book anyway, to a point of near non-existence. And when she does appear, she’s unattractive—sulking, snapping at Harry all the time because he outdoes her in Potions, setting birds on Ron. She’s a real shrew. I suppose it’s functional in terms of the plot, but it sure makes things duller for a lot of people.

Avatar Image says:

lol Roger… I don’t even know what to say.. maybe that we’ve probably seen as much pics of Ginny as of Luna and Lavender? The lack of Hermione is not Ginny’s or Bonnie’s fault. It seems that Lavender is having more publicity than Ginny, so… put your hate aside please.

Avatar Image says:

You are right about Hermione…maybe after Ron finds out from Ginny that she kissed Krum he turned her into a piece of dust or something, maybe she really is in all of these photos but just as a piece of dust…whatever, we shouldn’t let the WB get to us…it’s only the movies, it’s not like they’re ruining the books in any way. And Jo, I totally agree with you, it isn’t Ginny/Bonnie’s fault at all!! Lavender is getting more publicity and of course, Hermione HAS been getting a lot of publicity while Ginny’s sort of just been in the background (except in COS).

Avatar Image says:

Locket has to be the RAB fake guys, Dumbledore never touched the Slytherin one…right??

Dans chin is a little scary, has he always had that cleft? Maybe he’s had an implant while in the US hee hee!!

Avatar Image says:

The pictures are ok. In some pictures it looks like Harry (Dan) has six fingers instead of five. Click to expand and you can tell. That doesn’t look like the slytherin locket either. The picture with Snape and Dumbledore and Harry Ron and Hermione in the background, the one that we saw earlier that necklace was the cursed necklace wasn’t it?

Avatar Image says:

I would have thought that the fake locket would be an exact duplicate of the real one? I’ll have to go back to the books and check. I’m not happy with that locket! Lets make a petition to WB and see if they can change it – theyve got 291 days. In picture 140, Harry is sort of leaning back really wierdly like he’s leaning against something. I’m being real pedantic now. As for the first one, he’s still got six fingers (I actually only noticed this when someone else pointed it out) and his head is in the wrong place. Well it is on his neck, but sort of the wrong place on his neck.

Avatar Image says:

boring/regurgitation nothing new, liked the draco one only

Avatar Image says:

I hate this pic of Harry he looks so weird…. And why is the locket like that… I hope the real one resembles the 7th book cover

Avatar Image says:

Come on, where are the people who have seen the test projection of the film?! Have a pity on us and tell us if that is the locket. Well, I hope they at least left the potion green, not purple, or pink or something…

Avatar Image says:

you know, a 2009 calendar that is for a movie that doesnt come out until halfway through the year its made for, am i the only one who finds this sad and ironic? and i agree with you guys, the images look like a cheesy korean bootleg, very bad. so not buying this, and wheres the damn hackers with the stolen version of hbp? stop making viruses for my computer and get that movie online!! vigilante justice!

Avatar Image says:

Splinched-It is very sad and ironic!! That last sentence of yours sounds like what Mad-Eye Moody would say right now…”CONSTANT VIGILANCE!!”

Avatar Image says:

You know, I honestly have to wonder if anybody is even going to care, by the time this thing gets out. I think WB made a HUGE mistake. I am by now forcing myself to keep my interest in Harry Potter alive. I have this feeling that by next….what?....JULY?.......I’m not going to have any more than a passing interest in the whole damned enterprise….and that’s what it is by now. Starting to feel a bit like I did by the time Star Wars got down to the Clone Wars. It is actually possible to exhaust even a faithful audience.

Avatar Image says:

Locket what locket?? (lol) in what part of the movie the locket appears??? I don’t remenber any mentions of the locket in the reviews

Avatar Image says:

oh I remember now the fake locket pity

Avatar Image says:

omg Dan looks so fotoshopped in one of the pics! look at his chin!

Avatar Image says:

Hogwartsmallville, Ali,

Confederate Lady is right. We’ve already been shown a picture of the cursed necklace: http://www.hgnetwork.co.uk/fate/harry/hp2qs7.jpg

It’s lovely, and nothing like the weird square thing in the calender photo.

Avatar Image says:

what the eff is wrong with dan’s face. omg that is hysterical! WB, man you’ve outdone yourself with this one.

Avatar Image says:

Draco is mean and nasty so is mr. Malfoy, Harry spys on Draco in the bath room and they attack each other.
