Preview: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
For those “Harry Potter” fans, who can’t wait for the movie to arrive in theaters next year – here is an idepth preview of what to expect. Beware spoiler warning.
The Harry Potter movies have become a perennial summer and holiday movie mainstay since the 2001 release of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. With each film, we’ve watched the actors, their characters, and the storytelling mature. And even though J.K. Rowling’s literary series has drawn to a close, there are still three films to go in the big-screen series.
Next year, the beloved boy wizard returns in the much-anticipated sixth installment of the Warner Bros. film franchise, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The yarn, set in Harry’s sixth year at Hogwarts, explores the past of the evil Lord Voldemort and deals with the increasingly complex relationships between Harry and his friends as they prepare for the final battle.
But you don’t have to wait until July 17, 2009 to find out what’s in store for the next movie in the magical series. We’ve gazed into our crystal ball and have assembled this enchanted guide.
Here’s what you can expect in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince…
In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Lord Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final confrontation with an evil that he knows is fast approaching.
Together, Harry and Dumbledore work to find the key to unlock Voldemort’s defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague — the well-connected and unsuspecting Professor Horace Slughorn — whom he believes holds crucial information.
Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage. Harry finds himself more and more drawn to Ginny, but so is Dean Thomas. And Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, only she hadn’t counted on Romilda Vane’s chocolates that are spiked with a love potion. And then there’s Hermione, simmering with jealously but determined not to show her feelings.
