Thanks to Megan from Magical Menagerie who let us know that she has preview scans of the new issue of Movie Magic magazine which contains a large feature on the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. While she is unable to post very many scans at this time, there are a few online of the interviews from Tom Felton, Emma Watson, Dan Radcliffe, producer David Barron, costume designer Jany Temime among others. Of note is this partial scan of an interview with production designer Stuart Craig who addresses the splitting point of the two movies due of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” He very clearly says that at the point of the interview, he does NOT have a script to the films and does not know for certain, but says that he “heard it suggested that first film ends with the return of Ron Weasley. Ron has a falling out with Harry and leaves his friends, so his return is an emotional high. I guess that could provide a very satisfactory ending. I don’t know if Steve Kloves, the writer, agrees, but we’ll find out when we receive that first script.” Mr. Stuart also goes on to describe his work designing sets for the sixth Harry Potter film, specifically regarding the cave. The article cites Stuart Craig as saying they “only physically built two tiny little parts of it and the rest is a computer generated set, but for that we needed a small-scale model, a huge-scale model and as I said, a small physical part of it.”

The July issue of Movie Magic is on newsstands now.
