Obrigada pela tradução, Luke Debien. ;)

“Wonder how many times they’ll say the words “the chosen one” in the movie…"
Plus, Harry would never be happy about it… Sometimes WB sucks!

Harry is not happy about it. This is not evidenced in any of the trailers. Why would he be?!!? You’re just looking for another reason to hate WB.

i agree with Christine-i, for some reason, loved the “you cant expect him to just tell you his deepest darkest secret” (whatever it was…) line. i thought emma pulled it off so well. i thought that could be one of the times hermione and harry are talking in the evening when ron’s going out with lavender. yay!! awesome trailer!

LOVE: “How grand it must be to be the chosen one”. That is Snape at his best. It kind of reminds me of House and how he can make the crudest comment sound really funny.
You could also feel the fear pouring from Draco when he’s standing and rocking in front of the mirror. Absolutely wonderful to see.

I don’t like to much the emphasis on “the chosen one”.
In the book Jo made clear that the prophecy is not that important, it’s Voldemort who give it too much importance, not Dumbledore.
The sentence : “You’re the chosen one you must not fail” is a bit strong for Dumbledore.
