As the release of The Tale of Despereaux draws near, there are new updates to the movie website featuring actress Emma Watson (Hermione Granger). Via this link, at the bottom you can find a new feature where you can send a video holiday ecard featuring Emma Watson. Also new on the site are Despereaux cast bios and photos, including ones of Emma, as well as Potter co-star Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid). Finally be sure to check out the video section for the 'cast' feature, which has more from Emma recording for the animated film.

In addition, there continues to be a great deal of press coverage of the movie, including this interview with Emma Watson found in the USA Today that does contain (update) a lovely new photo of the actress now in our galleries. While much of the material we've heard before, Emma does speak briefly again on the upcoming Half-Blood Prince, as well as life post Potter after completing filming on Deathly Hallows. Quotage:

"We're a year older than our characters, so I feel like the film was about what I was experiencing a year ago, which was this kind of awkward playoff between girls and boys and the miscommunications that happen and the different way they think about things," says Watson.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final installment of the series, starts shooting in February and will be released in two parts.

"And then I'll be done," she says. "It's so much a part of my life, and it's going to be so strange when it's over. It's strange being 18 and thinking about the fact that probably I will never be part of something this big again in my lifetime."

It WOULD be weird to be only 18 and be winding down with the biggest part of your career. That’s kind of backwards from how most of us experience it. She is very wise for realizing that it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and things won’t always be this way. But I am sure she will do fine after HP, whatever she chooses.

i dont understand how not just emma, but ALL the young potterstars manage to be so level headed. daneil, rupert, emma, they all realize that they portray one of the most beloved and adoredd characters of all time, and i just dont understand how they dont let it get to their head. woah there were a lot of double negatives in that sentence. im just really impressed by their behavior so far. well… dans naked scene im not so sure about…

Emma is so down to earth, level headed and studious. That’s why she will do so well in the next few years. Good luck Emma!
