Back in April, we first told you ITV would be airing another special on the making of a Harry Potter film. Host Ben Shepherd is back again with his popular “Behind the Magic” special on the making of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. This program is set to air Saturday, July 11 7:00pm –


on ITV1. Thanks to reader Andrea we now know some of the great new things that will be contained in the program, including: “exclusive clips of Harry’s first kiss with his new girlfriend, Ginny
Weasley, Ron Weasley’s sister, and Daniel Radcliffe talks about filming
the scenes and how Harry handles going out with his best friend’s

Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint reveal they corpsed repeatedly
during a romantic scene between Harry and Ginny Weasley, Ron’s sister:
Dan: “We must have done it 20 times, because we couldn’t stop
laughing. Me and Rupert are still pretty terrible at corpsing. I’ve got
a lot better, but Rupert’s awful…”
Rupert: “It does get annoying. I’ve ruined so many takes and
there’s just no reason for it, I can’t explain it, it’s so annoying. I
feel really bad, ‘cos the day just goes on and on.”

Other tidbits include more as the host looks at Weasley Wheezes shop “which has 40,000 props, took 15 people a year to
design, 50 people an entire year to build and the crew and cast spent
five days filming in it.” We also will see “never-seen-before footage of the moment the Millennium Bridge in London
is ˜destroyed’ for the film. The Head of Visual Effects describes how
he used computer generated images to show the bridge buckling and
twisting before breaking free of the steel ropes holding it in place
and collapsing into the Thames.And Behind the Magic premieres exclusive footage of three brand new
characters: the professor who disguises himself as an armchair,
Greyback the terrifying werewolf and little Tom Riddle, the boy from
the orphanage who grew up to be the most evil wizard of all ’ Lord

Finally we will hear more from Emma Watson on the developing romantic feelings Hermione has for Ron, as well from Dan (Harry) and Rupert (Ron) on Quidditch, with Dan noting:”There’s no secret to Quidditch, other than for a man, if you imagine
sitting on a bicycle and taking your feet off the peddles, just hanging
there and leaning forward, with all the repercussions that has – then
you get an idea of what it’s like. Balance is difficult and also
certain very important organs are crushed”

Anyone who can capture video please send it in! Thanks so much Andrea!

Avatar ImageRavenclaw98 says: Sweet!!!!!Avatar Imagekamidee says: what the heck is corpsing? just from the context I assume its when they ruin the take or something...could someone explain? :)Avatar ImageLiderc says: I'm really surprised they are allowing so much of the movie to be previewed like this. I find it takes me out of the moment when I'm watching the actual film and see scenes from trailers. I won't be watching it, but those who do enjoy=PAvatar ImageRose-Mclane says: corpsing = pretty much laughing during a takeAvatar Imagephoenixes are in ravenclaw says: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! WHY ARE THEY DOING THIS TO ME??? I must not watch this clip... I must not watch this clip... I must not watch this clip... I must not watch this clip...Avatar Imagephoenixes are in ravenclaw says: I love that every time they wrote Ginny Weasley, they always put behind it, Ron's sister. hehe! I will not watch this, even though I will be tempted out of my mind, since it is Harry/Ginny.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: OOOOO....Avatar ImageRavenclaw98 says: Sweet!!!!!Avatar Imagephoenixes are in ravenclaw says: I am for sure going to watch this... after I see the movie.Avatar Imagehpikjdjg says: Yeah, what is "corpsing"? I'm not watching either. I haven't been watching any clips for the last couple of weeks. I think they get worse with every film's release - they show us TOO much. I'm not watching any clips at all when DH rolls around.Avatar Imageempressa says: won't be watching this... unless it airs after i've seen the movie. Avatar ImageGraymayne says: "Corpsing" refers to actors collapsing in fits of giggles when supposedly doing a serious scene. It is a bit like laughing in church, you know you shouldn't do it and that makes the situation funnier. Apparently it can strike anyone anytime, it isn't just youngsters. Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I am strongly tempted to watch this video but will refrain from so doing in order to not ruin the movie for me any more than I already have. As though that is possible.Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: Oh i loved the previous Behing the Magic programs on HP movies, i can't wait to see this one! :)Avatar Imagefan.numero1 says: ohh i am so not watching thiss, the whole movie is probably ruined for mee. . why is WB doing this to uss?? Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: I love these but might have to watch it after the movie - too much will ruin it!Avatar ImageRosalie says: I am going to be so tempted to watch this but I don't know if I should.Avatar ImageDolemite says: I can wait.Avatar Imagephelpstwinsfan says: I so want to see this. They showed a special in Australia today but it didn't show in my area. If anyone can put it on dvd for me that would be awesome. Amanda Guild
