Wonder what scene this pics from.Avatar Imagethe_mad_person says: I found the scene I am most looking forward to see! Harry Potter playing the piano!Avatar ImageJustSuperMione says: What the heck? When on earth did Harry learn to pay the piano? Is he going to play something like chopsticks? Did he learn at primary school? Is it in fact Moldy peice of soul that wants to be a piano player..? This is soooo interesting and I'm looking forward to it? By the way - enjoying his shoes - such a fashion person!!!Avatar Imageneopolitandreams17 says: Haha, that's so funny Harry is playing the piano! Kinda weird in my opinion... What's he gonna play, Ginny's lullaby or something?Avatar ImageThe Shadow Lord says: I thought Slughorn transformed himself into an armchair like Animagus style! BTW he looks way skinnier then i expectedAvatar ImageDobbyandWinky says: okay.... but it is kind of wierdAvatar Imagegaminette says: ah yes - The Slughorn Serenade. I remember that chapter well.Avatar ImageKatetheKeeper says: I toyally agree with you, Vampirella. Ginny's Lullaby, the next WWN hit!Avatar ImageDespina says: Ginny's Lullaby!!! LOL PS: the photo looks weird... Kind of déja-vu...Avatar ImageGingergirl26 says: Haha Vampirella, Ginny is in for a surprise. That's amazing how Harry has time to save the world and learn to play the piano at the same time... now I truely believe that he is The Chosen One!Avatar ImageProfessor Cassandra says: Oh my...it appears Harry has taken a leaf from Edward Cullen's book. xDAvatar Imageraisaers says: since when does harry play the piano?Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: I didn't know Harry knew how to play the piano! LOL :)Avatar ImagexxIBelieveInNarglesxx says: Harry playing piano,LOL XD oh wait.... maybe 'he's gonna have a Wrock band :DAvatar ImageMatea says: harry potter playing the piano,hahahahahahaha... don't worry guys,I think thats behide the scenes footage.or if its not...maybe they inserted this-harry trying to play the piano while dumbledore and slughorn chat.Avatar ImageRunwild101 says: Wow, nice piano!Avatar Imagepipkin3 says: Why is everyone assuming Harry has somehow learned the piano? He's probably just tinkering with it.Avatar Imagemhaeyemhaeye says: Harry could play the piano?! Woah! :PAvatar ImageLilly-Angel1 says: If Warner Bros. is trying to capture a scene from Twilight...OH I AM SOOO PISSED!!!! OMG OMG OMG!!!!!!! Hehe, gaminette [GTFO!] , Yea. I do remember that chapter. I always went to re-read it. It was amazing...Truly stunning. =OAvatar ImageErinM says: Piano? Oh well, love the shoes!Avatar ImageLilly-Angel1 says: Ah, he might be, pipkin3. Lets all hope he just lots his meds today, and didn't take them... LOL. And if he is tinkering with it, since when was he interested in Pianos?? Ever? Did the Durselys have a piano, maybe that was mentioned once, and Harry wanted to play with it?? Speaking of childness, Oh, I can't imagine what the Durselys had to go through with baby Harry. Maybe someone should write a fanfic of Harry from Baby to when we see him a little bit grown up, under to cubbord. LOL (Cubbord (sp..??) right?? LOL)Avatar ImageCatherine says: why is harry at a piano?Avatar Imagerebel says: I didn't know Harry could play the piano. is he half Harry, half Edward? If Harry starts to sparkle...I'm outta thereAvatar ImageWeasleyRavenclaw says: lovely how Harry has so many hidden talents all learned while at the mean old Dursleys:slaying a dragon, saving the wizarding world, and oh yeah! playing the piano. Harry is our own little prodigy! Avatar ImageVideoKID says: Interesting.Avatar Imagemoony_lupin says: Interesting! Harry playing a piano. Is this in Slughorn's house in Budleigh Babberton or his suite at Hogwarts? Avatar Imagephoenixes are in ravenclaw says: Why is he playing a piano? It's pretty cool, and I'm excited to see it actually in context Avatar Imagephoenixes are in ravenclaw says: Why is he playing a piano? It's pretty cool, and I'm excited to see it actually in context! Avatar ImageBrad Ausrotas says: I'm pissed off that they're screwing with the canon for no reason now. Harry doesn't know how to play piano in the canon, so he sure as hell shouldn't be playing piano here.Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: Lol. What if he played Hedwig's Theme? That'd be cool :)Avatar Imageshellybasson says: i do hope this is just dan goofing-off between takes. too Edward-esque for my taste! LOLAvatar Imagecheekysnake09 says: nooooooo. this isn't twilight. harry never took lessons!Avatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: What, you don't remember Harry going to the public library to get out a book to learn how to play air piano while confined to his cupboard under the stairs? Maybe it is just a compulisve need to try to play chopsticks...Avatar ImageMcGiggles92 says: It is obviously at the beginning when they go to get Slughorn because there is a piano.Avatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: Another thought: Remember, Steve Kloves is back. He does have a history of things like talking shrunken heads. We should be prepared for non canon material because clearly the pages of the novels as written by Ms. Rowling could NEVER provide enough content to fill a two hour movie.Avatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: Another thought: Remember, Steve Kloves is back. He does have a history of things like talking shrunken heads. We should be prepared for non canon material because clearly the pages of the novels as written by Ms. Rowling could NEVER provide enough content to fill a two hour movie.Avatar ImageLucia Meadows says: I would have loved it if any of the trio had musical talents in the books. I guess practice on an instrument takes up too much time from solving mysteries and fighting Voldy. However, I don't think we'll get a glimpse into a secret Lizst or even another Edward.Avatar ImageRavenclawForever says: Is this another thing he inherited from Voldemort: the ability to play piano?!Avatar Imagesquibcloakmaker says: Yeah that is strange, they shouldn't have him playing, hopefully he is just looking at it or hitting a few keys, cause who can resist when around a piano, you have to hit a few keys even if you can't play. I did see several photos in that group that I hadn't seen before so yay.Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: This photo is certainly curious, as I do not recall Harry as even being capable of playing the piano. I cannot wait to see the context in which this still appears from the actual movie.Avatar ImageDrome says: Hhaha, I can't believe my eyes. :'D Harry playing piano, my dream has come true!Avatar ImagePennyMSL says: a piano??? huh??Avatar Imagesp00kym00ny says: ooh... I see... Harry is at Slughorn's house, suddenly breaking into an amazing piano performance. Slughorn sings soprana, and than Dumbles comes in singing alto. Lovely.Avatar ImageScarlette says: I think (hope) he's just curious and fiddling around. Harry playing the piano seems a bit too out of character....Avatar Imageccking says: WTF?Avatar ImageSTARZOE says: piano?? great to have another pic anyway!!Avatar ImageDespina says: I think Harry is just getting ready to vocalize... he probably wants to audition for the school chorus, the one Professor Flitwick conducts, remember? "Double, double toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble" And Slughorn might be helping him as a substitute croaking toad... untile he gets a proper one! Avatar ImageMary11_hplvr4l says: lol all this piano cannon :PAvatar ImageEnricoDc says: Maybe if out of class, Harry went to Prof. Flitwick and ask to teach him how to play the piano. :))Avatar ImageFereverto says: Perhaps there's a charm or hex for giving yourself musical ability. Maybe Harry is one of those fortunate people who can play by ear. More likely, he's just plunking around on the keys out of curiosity, boredom or it could be that he is pretending that he isn't paying attention to what is going on around him. As someone has already said, this may not be a still from the movie at all. Don't you just love all the possibilities? ;-) .Avatar ImageDrome says: I'd *love* to see Harry playing in the movie.Avatar Imageemiliehope says: I'm bringing a pillow to the movie, so if Harry suddenly starts pounding out some Beethoven, I'll have something to scream bloody murder into. Come on, what are they thinking!? "Ooh, you know what this movie needs! A pianist! Oh my God, you know who'd make a great pianist?! Harry!" "Ya, let's totally write that into the script, it's perfect!" Avatar ImageParkinsonpansy says: What, harry knows how to play the piano!!!! LolAvatar Imagearkapain says: Sorry, only this can explain my opinion on the matter: ?????????????????????????????????Avatar Imagepottershrink says: Maybe it was just a snap between scenes and it's Dan (rather than Harry) at the piano? Either way, let's start a contest for what song or music he might be playing. I vote for "Memories".Avatar Imagepottershrink says: Or maybe he's playing: "Thanks for the memory" (frank sinatra) Avatar ImageHROAR Mudblood Proud says: I guess Harry is channeling his frustration into art . . .Avatar Imagepottershrink says: Or, "Chained to a memory" by Dusty Springfield.Avatar Imagemarauder. says: Harry can't play the piano. Hmm. Maybe the Dursley's hated him so much that they made him sit through endless piano classes?Avatar ImageEnricoDc says: I wish Chis Columbus will be back to direct the Final HP movie. He must finish what he have started... in short, i don't like David Yates in the movie project.Avatar ImagePhantomfluteplayer says: lol, of course Harry would learn how to play Piano. You see, over the summer before his 6th year, Harry decided to take a break from stressing over Voldemort (he's no big deal) and learned how to play the piano. He then realized that he may be able to use that tactic to play a lullaby to put Voldemort to sleep so he can Avada him. Great plan!Avatar Imageele0206 says: oh my god...oh my god!!! Ok, if Harry/Dan can play the piano, I will REALLY, SURELY, marry him!!!!!! This thing's sooooo sexy.Avatar Imagepottercastfan says: I never thought wizards, or Harry for that matter, can plat the piano. Maybe it is a magical piano that you don't have to play it. It plays on its own!Avatar ImageCrazyChlojo says: dear WB, Harry Potter does not equal Edward Cullen. kthnx.Avatar ImageBeAchL0veEr05 says: Harry looks like Edward Cullen by the piano! :/ Is this not the randomest pic you've ever seen? :PAvatar Imagesavingharry says: Hey guys! don't you remember the piano scene from the book? The part where Harry plays the song he wrote for Bella and... wait, am I getting my books mixed up?Avatar Imageavrenim says: i got so excited when i saw the title of this article.. then i looked at the picture and got so confused. doesn't WB have to run everything by j.k. rowling before they put it in the movie? HOW COULD SHE HAVE ALLOWED THIS?! he better just be fiddling around on it and not really playing. Avatar Imagecghambright says: I think the picture is HILARIOUS! It could be from one of the funny scenes in the movie in which Slughorn just assumes Harry can play the piano because he's the "chosen one" or maybe Harry is trying to get the memory from Slughorn, so he's trying to impress him. Either way...we all KNOW Harry can't really play the piano. Lmao. Avatar Imageemerald_eyes910 says: Harry at a piano? Thats weird!!Avatar ImageBriannaWazHere says: haha, harry playing the piano, my guess is slughorns asks harry to play the piano and harry's like "er- i dont play." and slughorn is like "of course you do don't be modest." that's probably why harry looks uncomfortable. XD this looks like it's gonna be a funny sceneAvatar ImageBriannaWazHere says: haha, harry playing the piano, my guess is slughorns asks harry to play the piano and harry's like "er- i dont play." and slughorn is like "of course you do don't be modest." that's probably why harry looks uncomfortable. XD this looks like it's gonna be a funny sceneAvatar ImageGreat Uncle Algie says: whhhhhhhhhat? Avatar Imageblind_pilot says: That's really weird, why would he be playing piano? Even if the Dursely's had a piano it's not like they would let Harry play it.Avatar ImageMr. Brightside says: It's so funny and annoying at the same time. XD But what gets me a headache is his shoes. Seriously, since when Harry wears all star shoes? I can imagine Draco laughing at him because he wears last years shoes when he managed to get the new collection lol *diez*Avatar ImageRaWr...WeReWoLf says: since when can harry play the piano?Avatar ImageZivlok says: 10 galleons says he's playing "Chopsticks".Avatar ImageKimberlyZ says: was that in the book...?Avatar ImageHappy_Orange says: Haha GInny's lullaby hahaaaa!!Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: Harry plays the piano? Hmmm. I'm thinking the Durselys didn't provide a teacher for him. Avatar Imagephantomdave79 says: I am guessing this is when he meets Slughorn and Dumbledore goes to the bathroom to leave them alone. Maybe he sits down at the piano to goof off and kill some time seeing as it is awkward at first being alone with someone he had just met. maybe he really isn't playing a song, but just trying to find something to occupy himself. Avatar Imagehopkinsdancr22 says: why why why would harry be playing the piano!Avatar Imageiampadfoot says: I hope he plays Hedwig's Theme or something... that'll be funny!Avatar ImageLuce_depp says: A paino??? WTF!!?Avatar ImageElwood_magic says: I doubt he'll actually play it - that'd be deviating way too much from the books :PAvatar Imagespicefan1978 says: I didn't know he could play!Avatar ImageMoon Lyra says: Harry Potter playing the piano? Wow! Interesting.Avatar ImageMOEgir198 says: aw he looks great. i love the chucks!Avatar Imagemaera-kyrie says: That's...odd...lolAvatar Imageweasleyalltheway says: harry plays the piano????? lol that'd be really weird wouldn't it?Avatar ImagePineApple says: Harry Piano??? What ?Avatar Imagemoglet says: Have you never had the urge to sit down at a piano just to press a few keys? I think its quite funny, it does look more like it could be at Hogwarts rather than when Harry first meets Slughorn. Perhaps it Slughorn's idea of a detention "you will sit at that piano until you have learnt to play the entire score"!!!!!!Avatar ImageBellaPrince says: Harry playing the piano? Weird. I never knew. :)Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: Harry potter playing a piano interesting!Avatar ImageDrome says: Random? :DAvatar Imagestevenk12468 says: Cool new picture. I can't wait for the new movie!Avatar ImageAJWC1 says: Perhaps, Harry doesn't KNOW how to actually play. Maybe he's just polking at keys while trying to figure out a way get Slughorn to share that memory. Or, maybe the Felix stuff got him thinking he can. Or, maybe he taught himself Heart and Soul or Chopsticks whenever the Dursley's left the house... Anyway, I'm sure Harry's not about to start playing some great piece.Avatar ImageAJWC1 says: Perhaps, Harry doesn't KNOW how to actually play.

Anyway, I'm sure Harry's not about to start playing some great piece.Avatar Imagesaffran says: Ok, a wizard can master anything he wants, I guessAvatar Imagelunaspec_gimmy says: Wow, I'm really hoping this is something more like Slughorn asking him to just go find the right key or something.. Proper stupid if he can suddenly just play piano.Avatar Imageespalda neon says: Piano? The comments are hilarious about, Ginny's lullaby, or Slughorn Serenade! Wonder what made them put that in the movie.Avatar Imagelilhpchick20 says: This does not mean he knows how to play the piano. Maybe he is just messing with it.Avatar Imagearlo says: Funny. I have two teen daughters and a piano, their female friends come in and walk right past it. The boys always seem to have to play around with the keys and only a few of them actually know how to play. Its funny, especially in light of this photo. I always thought there should be more music at Hogwarts. Ginny's lullaby ha!Avatar ImageIthilien says: Maybe he's just picking the keyboard, not playing at all maybe. Though it looks like he's trying to produce some kind of sound. anyways- we shall know in three months!!!Avatar Imageboywizard63 says: oh right slughorn symphony in d major... this is totally irelevantAvatar Imageplacebowiz says: can't waitAvatar ImageJTEL99 says: Hmmm, Harry looks a bit like Robert Pattinson there, doesn't he? ;-DAvatar ImageAmarie says: Your comment made me laugh, Gaminete; I agree. I'm wondering, though, if this is supposed to be part of the felix felicis scene? Maybe part of his luck is a sudden skill at piano?? still wierd though.Avatar Imageathena024 says: I had the strangest dream the other night that Dean, Seamus and Harry formed a band. Such a crazy dream, haha Maybe he is playing Ginny's Lullaby! lolAvatar ImageLivelaughlovepotter says: this is freakin potterlicious!!! wait, how are they going to explain how harry learned piano??Avatar Imagemish149 says: Ok, so Harry can now play the piano... and have awesome shoes in the muggle world? Wouldn't the dursley's kinda notice? I mean, they aren't ment to know Harry has a whole heap of money are they?Avatar ImagemOOn-stArs-sUn says: Harry is looking a lot like Edward Cullen there. At least there's no fog!Avatar ImageDanielBonnie28 says: Harry!! with a piano!!!Avatar ImageHorcruxalej says: Maybe he's working on his theme song for when hes on the road fighting Horcrux'sAvatar ImageDanielleD says: don't care about the piano! love it anyhow!Avatar ImageChemirocha says: LOL @gaminette.Avatar ImageethanHP says: I think we are jumping to conclusions too quickly. We don't know if this is a scene from the movie, or a scene filmed but not included, or a behind the scenes pic of Dan playing. If it is a pic from the film, then we don't know if he is playing or just admiring the piano and touchingit. It could be a magical piano. We don't really know how music instruments are played in the Wizard world. Maybe it was Jo who said them about it. We know Jo reads the scripts and tell them if there is something wrong.Avatar Imagekenmarekestrels93 says: damn it got deleted!Avatar ImageHGROSS44 says: ouch Sue i hope you are not in trouble.Avatar ImageThe Sorting Hat says: So a piano playing Harry in the removed pic...Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: I missed it, hopefully WB will allow it to be released soon. Avatar Imageffecheerleader says: Since when can harry play the piano!Avatar Imageffecheerleader says: Since when can harry play the piano!Avatar ImageNoella_Mansrot says: oh...they took it down.Avatar ImageHarryRichardsPotter says: oh dear christ. Play us a tune Harry! It's probably been deleted as a scene, considering WB demanded it gone.Avatar ImageAvangelis says: hmmmmmm i wonder why. do i hear a cut scene comingAvatar ImageAvangelis says: hmmmmmm i wonder why. do i hear a cut scene comingAvatar ImageProf_Tofty says: Or perhaps they just didn't want us to find out that Harry could play the piano yet? :D
