It looks like shes upset. Also no robes, more like dress clothes. She has her hand inside the box/desk. There’s something in it you can see the edges of it coming up higher than the wood. The box/desk isn’t long or wide enough to be a casket. I’m thinking that this is a still from a added part. The director has already said that the funeral isn’t going to be in the film. Maybe, this is part of a end of term ceremony. McGonagall is headmistress now that DD is dead, she would conduct it.??? They’ve got to find a way to go from DD’s death to the end, without the funeral.

Looks just like I did on Halloween! Talk of which, vote McGonagall (Irvin) at Mugglenet’s Costume Contest before it’s too late!

im not sure what it is, it doesn’t look quite right to be a desk or a casket, perhaps a impromptu memorial of some sort but there is nothing the in pic to show that, and its definately not the headmaster’s office that Mc Gonagall is standing in, just not really enough inthe pic to positively identify what the msytery object is or whats happening in it, but i do agree by the worn out, pained lok on her face id say its after Dumbledore’s death

go on maggie XD
looking rather stressed and worn down there.
and thankyou Beth A, i could only see the little tiny pic until i read your comment ;D

just my thought but the wooden thing to the left looks like one of those tall things people make speeches from?? like in church or whatever. normally with a book on to be read from??

and agreed with Gweneth, i liked the pictures.. made it look nicer..

Just a question… Don’t know if anyone can answer me. I had read that Dame Maggie Smith had breast cancer not too long ago. I’m pretty sure I read it on this site. Does anyone know if she’s better? Is she in remission yet? I hope so…

Not too sure on the costume, it doesn’t look very authentic, and were’s the hat? It’s been missing for about 2 films. And she is supposed to be wearing amerald robes, like the first two movies. The little things…. Anyway, it’s not maggie’s fault, she is great as Minnie. I hope she portrays minnie kicking ass in the battle of hogwarts in the last film.

Oh my gosh. JOEY!, I think you may be right. Everything fits. She’s wearing the same clothes, there’s snow in the background, and the podium thing looks the same in both pictures. It has to be the scene with the necklace!

Her hand is behind something in this picture though, rather than flat on a table like the opal necklace one. =/ I thought it might be Dumbledore’s casket at first, but I think it looks like she’s ascending a staircase.
