Reminder: Extended Goblet of Fire to Air on ABC Family Tonight, Half-Blood Prince Sneaks Online
December 07, 2008, 06:26 PM
A quick reminder that ABC Family will be airing Harry Potter and the Goblet tonight at 730pm (ED), this edition to include ten extra minutes deleted from the theatrical version of the movie. As posted earlier, the USA Today said the new deleted scenes include "extended segments
with Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and his buddy Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint)
and their respective flirtations, as well as a scene with Mad Eye Moody
(Brendan Gleeson) and Barty Crouch (Sam Hazeldine) following the
underwater sequence of the Tri-Wizard Tournament."
All weekend long, the cable channel has also been broadcasting short new sneak peeks at the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and we now have all of the clips available for viewing and download here in our video galleries. Recent new footage includes shots of Weasleys Wheezes, and behind the scenes glimpses of "comedy Quidditch" showing actor Rupert Grint filming some funny bits for his role as Ron Weasley as the new Gryffindor Keeper. Also new are new footage and interviews with Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), Jim Broadbent (Professor Slughorn), director David Yates, producer David Heyman, and Michael Gambon who is featured in a bit on the young Tom Riddle.
ABC clips are as follows:
- The Story of Tom Riddle
- Love is in the air
- Meet Professor Slughorn
- The Story
It’s not just you, Rae, and I hope, JKR having said that this film was great, that it will carry the feel of the story. Because the recent trailers have been great and I really want it to be good (true to the book good).
Why don’t they just show the “extended” version in theaters? GoF is so much better with these extra scenes; not as choppy as it was.
Rae: There is the " Fight back you coward!" line.
I’m excited despite the first 5 comments. One would think by now we’ve have already gotten used to the movies’ differences.
Remember, don’t judge something you haven’t seen. That’s what people who ban HP do.
no… im SURE we have some half-blood prince storyline, don’t worry. i mean.. it seems kind of important. it’s only the title of the book!! in “the story” sneak peek they might not have mentioned it as one of the plot lines because they didn’t want to give too much away. but it’s not like every one of us hasn’t read the book…
Yay!!! Everything looks amazing!!! Weasley Wizard Wheezes looks excellent!! Lavender Brown looks perfectly annoying, so does Cormac MacLaggen…he looks great!!! I can’t wait to quidditch!! Everything just looks so good!!
Well, where are the deleted scenes? I got upset last time when I was not told the truth about ABC Family showing deleted scenes during Goblet of Fire, and now this time it looks like USA Today let me down. I’m so sad and can’t say how disappointed I am.
Am I mistaken or during the making of the first movie (the Socerer’s (sp) Stone) that she was going to keep true to the books, or as close as possible? What happened? I love the movies, but I just wondered if maybe something had changed in her thinking.
