The media barrage heralding the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince continues today as there are two more features now online featuring the sixth Harry Potter film. Seen here courtesy of our Order Partner DanRadcliffe.com, SFX has a long and rather light look at the film, focusing on the old David Yates quote about the film "It's all Sex, Potions, and Rock n Roll" and subsequent related themes. There was however, one piece of interesting material from producer David Heyman, who said he was looking ahead to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, notably "the multiple Harries at the beginning, the escape from Malfoy Mansion, the funeral for Dobby-that was really moving. And the whole final scene, where all the people from Harry's past who are dead come to walk with Harry as he goes to face Voldemort. It's just so mystic, but not for the sake of being mystic." Mr. Heyman also weighed in on possible future Harry Potter stories from author J.K. Rowling, saying carefully "I don't think that Jo will do another story on Harry, Ron and Hermione at Hogwarts," Heyman replies with [fellow producer David] Barron adding "She's spent 17 years perfecting the structure for this particular story, so it's hard to imagine that she'd find another way into it." "She said to me, when it was over, it was like the worst breakup ever," Heyman continues, "but now she's so happy. I've never seen her so spirited or full of life."

The second series of scans are from the new issue of SciFi Magazine and contain a much more substantive Half-Blood Prince set visit report, with new quotes from the costume designer and the prop master. You can see all of these scans via this link.

Thanks so much Lauren!
