Thanks to our friends at Oclumencia for pointing us to a series of interviews with Vira-Tempo blog where director David Yates and several of the cast members discuss the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince DVD. Links can be found here: Dan Radcliffe, David Yates, Rupert GrintBonnie Wright, and Emma Watson. Of interest are new comments from Dan Radcliffe and David Yates on that Blu-ray live community screening that will take place December 12 as well as a bit on the Deathly Hallows sneak peek as follows:

"So you’re undertaking something of a first with the Blu-ray release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
with the Live Community Screening – can you tell me more about that?
DAVID YATES: "Yes. Technically, it's an extraordinary event. It’s happened before, but not on the global scale that we're going to do because obviously there are Harry Potter fans everywhere on the planet. It's on December 12th of this year and Daniel Radcliffe and I will be answering questions directly from fans via BD-Live about how we made the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and some of the things that were challenging as we made it, and some of the things that I'm sure the fans will begin to know about: Why did we leave some things out? Why did some things come in? And it will be the first time that we'll really engage with that global fan-base on a minute-by-minute basis, so it'll be really cool.

So you’ll be enticing people to take part, obviously?
Dan Radcliffe: Oh, absolutely. I'm actually genuinely very, very excited about it. I think it'll be really cool. I'm looking forward to some absolutely mental questions, and probably questions I haven't been asked before because fans come at the film from a totally different side to journalists. So I imagine there'll be some stuff I've never heard before."

David Yates also speaks to the Deathly Hallows sneak peek we will be getting next month.We thought we'd just give them a few little snippets of what we've been doing over the past seven months as we shot Deathly Hallows. We don't want to give too much away; it's a few little tidbits of some of the sequences that we've been filming. I'm so excited about the two movies that we're making from the Deathly Hallows and we just wanted to give the fans a bit of a taste of that with the Blu-ray.

DustinTheWhite, these movies are the reason I fell in the love with Harry Potter, and I did it without any of the books until 2007. You and others are incapable of understanding that the movies are separate and do not have to be like the books in order to be good. People like movies for different reasons. I’ d bet you only focus on script, script, script. There is more to film than that. The filmmakers have every right to change things, they are their movies. You also take for granted everything they’ve left in! You’re jaded. 95% of HP fans seem to be this way, and it just depresses the hell out of me. I fully understand the right to opinion, but I will never understand truthfully why people visit and revisit things, like these movies, if they don’t enjoy them.

"I am not going to come quietly at all, Cornelius. I have absolutely no intention of being sent to Azkaban. I could break out, of course -- but what a waste of time, and frankly, I can think of a whole host of things I would rather be doing."
