The new issue of Entertainment Weekly will contain a cover story and lengthy feature on Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Due on newsstands tomorrow Friday, July 10th, you can see a high res image of the cover here in our galleries that featuring a brand new photo of the Trio of Dan Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson. The magazine also promises new exclusive photos from HBP as well as teasers on the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The website reads:

Half-Blood Prince encompasses young love run amuck, secret
missions, and impending war. Most Hollywood insiders expect it to be
one of the year’s biggest hits, partly because it’s rated a
family-friendly PG, whereas the last two Potter films were PG-13.
Still, it will be interesting to see how the movie’s brand of innocent
romance plays with young audiences smitten by the neo-goth sexiness of Twilight.
Even Potter star Emma Watson read all four Twilight books after a friend turned
her onto the series last year. “I mean, I wouldn’t say I was one of the psycho fans,” she says. “Absolute madness, that phenomenon, isn’t it?”

As for
the Potter phenomenon, the movies are slowly coming to an end, with the
remaining JK Rowling novel, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, to be split
into two movies. During the production of Half-Blood Prince — the final chapter
to be set within Hogwarts School-Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Watson
wore their characters’ Gryffindor House robes for the last time. “I was like ‘Burn it!’ Oh my god, to be done with those shoes and that uniform-that was an exciting day,” says Watson. Radcliffe adds, “When you’re 18, one of the worst things to be wearing while tryin got chat up a girl on the set is a school uniform. You look like a kid! You’re not going to score dressed like that!”

That pic of them is adorable!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Really nice cover pix...Avatar Imagepotterrock says: hahahaha cool picturee...ilovee the triooww, the interview iss great :)Avatar ImageCathrynOCamdentowne says: Makes me laugh Emma wishing they could burn the robes, and Daniel feeling foolish wearing the uniform -of course, they won't be burned, they're probably going to Florida for the theme park. In 10 years or so, the trio will likely be all nostalgic about their old costumes; makes nothing in the way of sense, but that's the way it works, just one of the quirks in human nature.Avatar ImageJadeDanielle says: AH! I'm so excited! I love the cover photo, everyone looks great, but especially Emma and Rupert. Oh, whenever I get an issue with HP on the cover I especially appreciate the fact that I subscribed to this magazine :DAvatar Imagemiobrio says: Gorgeous colors on the cover. And I love that Emma-Rupert interaction--foreshadowing for the 6th/7th book? Love it! And lol at Dan's incredibly manly chest hair. Avatar Imagebadger666 says: Can't wait to read it. But, seriously, why is Twilight referenced in every single HP article? I mean I have no problem with Emma reading Twilight or anything, but what is the connection to HP?!Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: coolioAvatar ImageKC Nox says: going to get this tomorrow!Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: that mag is definitely a keeper! :P)
