MuggleCast 173 Transcript (continued)



Trailer: Draco Has To Do It


Andrew: It just sounds - like maybe he's...

Micah: Whiny.

Andrew: Yeah! But maybe - okay, so maybe he's being emotional so he may be on the verge of crying.

[Andrew plays clip again]

Andrew: [imitating Malfoy] "I have to do this!"

[Matt laughs]

Andrew: Do you guys think this is good, or what?

Matt: I think it's kind of weird by itself but I think it may actually fit with the whole scene.

Andrew: Yeah.

Mikey: I don't know. I don't know.

Andrew: I don't know. I wasn't - it just didn't come off - I want to see manly Draco. I want to say, [in a "manly" voice] "I have to do this."

Mikey: Wow.

Andrew: Not, not...

[Andrew plays clip again]

Andrew: [imitating Malfoy] "I have to do this!"

Matt: So you want, [in a "manly" voice] "I have to do this!"

Andrew: [in a "manly" voice] "I have to do this. Ahh, I'm on Twitter!"

[Matt does a Darth Vader impression]

[Andrew laughs]

Matt: [As Darth Vader] "Dumbledore, I have to do this!"

Andrew: [plays partial clip] Tweet! [plays partial clip] Tweet! [plays partial clip] Tweet! Twitter.

Mikey: Wow.

Andrew: Okay. So yeah I'm not really totally - maybe if it is emotional before that - whatever is happening before maybe it will be funny, but...

Matt: It's - it's not funny.

Andrew: That - that was a...

Mikey: Yeah. It's supposed to be emotional man. This is where you start to see that you are kind of sorry for Draco.

Andrew: Yeah.

Mikey: That he is sort of forced to kill Dumbledore who could have stopped him a long time ago, but didn't.

Andrew: Yeah.

Matt: Yeah.

Mikey: And you see that - you see that at the end of Book 6 and in Book 7 you see that he kind of doesn't want to be where he is and he's kind of stuck in that, otherwise he's going to die.

Andrew: Yeah.

Mikey: So I see it as him - more crying than sad like, I have to do it but I don't want to...

Andrew: Right.

Mikey: ...but I'm going to kill you anyway!

[Andrew laughs]

Matt: Well, this is probably later on in the conversation when Dumbledore is trying to have him stop and he's starting to break down.

Andrew: Yeah that could be it.

Matt: He could have started off really manly too and then you know, Dumbledore being the man that he is...

Andrew: Yeah.

Matt: ...is slowly breaking him, you know?

Mikey: Yeah it's kind of like when you are saying, "We can protect your family," and he's like, "No one can protect me," and all that.

Andrew: Yeah.

Matt: Yeah.

Andrew: So...

Matt: Join our mafia of wizards, Draco. We can give you protection.

Andrew: Yeah. So it went from, "Dumbledore I have to kill you," to...

[Andrew plays clip again]

Andrew: [imitating Malfoy] "I have to."

Matt: [In a defensive whiny voice] "Dumbledore, you don't understand. My dad is really angry at me. I have to do this."

[Everyone laughs]

Mikey: Wow.

Matt: Yeah.



Trailer: Train Attack


Andrew: And that lovely moment was at 2:04, like I said. And then we also saw the train attack. That was at 2:12 and we've seen it before. So, you know, it wasn't much of a surprise.

Matt: Yeah, not too much.

Andrew: But it's cool. He does look angry in that scene. That's the Draco I like to see.

Matt: [imitating Draco with a whiny voice] "Petrificus Totalus."

Andrew: [laughs] "Petrificus Totalus."

Matt: Hmmm. Yeah, we're not seeing much of that scene, are we?

Andrew: No we're not, not yet.

Matt: I mean honestly we have seen a lot of stuff in the past trailers and in this one and a lot of the fans are of course upset. But I mean, come on, we all see all the trailers anyway.

Andrew: Right.

Matt: I would hate to see the same trailer a billion times anyway. But at least they are showing a lot of the scenes that are kind of close together. So, it's not like one shot of every single part of the film.

Andrew: Yes.

Mikey: Yeah.

Andrew: So by the way a quick update on Laura. We want to get her in here but she - she isn't able to get into one of the rooms where she can take out her laptop. But Matt, can you ask her if we could call her and then we'll get her thoughts that way? She doesn't have to be on for a while. Just a couple minutes.

Matt: On the phone?

Andrew: On the phone.



Trailer: Snape - It's Over!


Andrew: Okay and then the Snape story line. We got a really cool line out of him. Snape said... [plays clip]

[Andrew and Micah laugh]

Andrew and Matt: [imitating Snape] "It's over."

Micah: Now do you guys think that was something taken out of context?

Mikey: Oh yeah.

Micah: Or do you think that's really after he kills Dumbledore.

Andrew: I hope not. I hope it's - well I was thinking like, "It's over," and then he sends Dumbledore flying off.

Matt: Well, maybe - maybe it's just half of what he's going to say. Like maybe he's going to say, "It's over, for you."

[Andrew plays clip]

Andrew and Matt: "For you."

[Andrew plays clips]

Andrew and Matt: "For you."

Matt: Avada Kedavra! [laughs]

[Andrew plays Draco and then the Snape clip]

Andrew: I don't know. It's going to go one way or the other.

Matt: Yeah.

Andrew: But yeah - I sort of - I feel like that's - that it would - it would really be cool to me if, "It's over," and then he sends him flying off the Astronomy Tower. That would be really sad, but I think it would be really cool. Now Mikey, what do you think? Do you think it was out of context?

Mikey: I think it was out of context. I guess you know - because I think that's kind of - "It's over," is just - he didn't say anything like in the book. I know they can add stuff, but less is more. And honestly by saying, "It's over," kind of defeats the purpose. Yes, Avada Kedavra the green flash we know that kills people. We've seen it before.

Mikey: We know that kills people, we've seen it before.

Matt: Mhm.

Mikey: But why would he have to say "It's over"? I think that's taken out of context somewhere else, and it's put in there because, again, the trailer is cut to be exciting.

Andrew: Right.

Mikey: And I think it fits in the trailer, but I really think - hope it's out of context.

Matt: Maybe Snape says it to Draco? Says, "It's over, I'll finish it."

Mikey: Maybe, I could see that. But I wouldn't say it's necessarily right before it. I would say, "It's done," and then he turns to Draco and there's a pause before, and it's not right afterwards. And it's not referring to Dumbledore at all. It might be referring to Draco, say, "It's over, it's done." His - you know...

Andrew: Yeah.

Matt: Yeah.

Micah: Or does he say it to Harry even, under the cloak?

Matt: Yeah, he could say...

Mikey: It could be.

Matt: But Harry's not under the cloak, apparently.

Mikey: It could also even be out in the courtyard when Harry's chasing him and stuff like that. After Snape kind of tosses him away, and it's like, "It's over," and he walks away.

Matt: Yeah.

Mikey: I can't imagine - especially how they're going to portray Snape in the next movie based on what we know in the book, that they're going to have him be that type of character saying, "It's over" after he kills Dumbledore. Because that's just kind of like the nail - it's like stabbing him in the back, essentially. It's not - he doesn't want to do it, and we know he doesn't want to do it.

Andrew: Yeah.

Matt: Yeah.

Andrew: I mean - and this shot at 1:53, it's a beautiful shot. It's a close up of Snape, his hair is blowing in the wind, and that's why I sort of think that it may be at the pinnacle moment, because this is a really nice shot of Snape. And I think the wind blowing in his hair just sort of completes it, and you're close up so it's emotional. Snape - I won't jump to conclusions, but I kind of think he may be a little teary-eyed. I don't know, his eyes look a little glossy.

Mikey: You know, it could be even after it's done and he's looking down at it, but not in the moment of killing him.

Matt: Yeah.

Andrew: People in the chat are saying Snape says "It's over" right before the Death Eaters come, or right before the Death Eaters Apparate away.

Micah: In the book?

Andrew: Yeah, everyone's saying he says it to the Death Eaters.

Matt: I think the same person is saying it over and over and over again. They're going to get banned in a couple seconds if they don't stop.

Andrew: No, but other people are saying it, too.

Matt: Okay. [laughs]

Andrew: Okay, well, yeah.

Matt: And that makes more sense.

Andrew: Yeah, it does, as much as I would like to see, "It's over," and then [makes spell sound]

Matt: He kills him, and then he stops the Death Eaters coming up or something, saying, "It's over."

Andrew: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Matt: And then he goes up and kills Dumbledore or something.

Andrew: Classic Alan Rickman.

Matt: Classic Alan pause two seconds after every word.

Andrew: Right. "It's...over." Which he does in every role ever, but whatever. It works for him.

Matt: Yeah.

Andrew: And we're nearing the end of our play by play, and we're also going to take your calls tonight...

Matt: Yes.

Andrew: ...but once we're done getting through all this. We're also going to discuss some other news. It's been just over a month since we've done our last show. Hehe, sorry.

Mikey: Hey, you want to know something funny that I just realized?

Matt: What?

Mikey: This is episode 173; my first episode was 73.

Andrew: Aw, Mikey!

Matt: Aw, Mikey!

Andrew: Happy 100.

Mikey: That's 100 episodes ago. Wow.

Andrew: [laughs] Congratulations.

Mikey: Woohoo, I'm 100...episodes.

Andrew: That's really nice.

Matt: Old.

Andrew: And we'll call Laura right before we take the live calls. So Matt, if you want to tell her it'll be a couple other minutes?

Matt: Yeah. She's actually walking outside, so we can call her.



Trailer: Bellatrix in Hogwarts


Andrew: Okay. Bellatrix in the Great Hall, that's at 1:56 and 2:05. We've seen it before, but it's a really cool shot.

Matt: It is really nice.

Andrew: I mean, she's just running along the Great Hall table, knocking...

Matt: Just kicking everything.

Andrew: Yeah, knocking everything out of her way.

Micah: She's nuts.

Matt: She's just having fun. That's all she's doing.

Andrew: She is nuts. And that's what really makes that role. Her craziness is just - it's over the top. And one of my favorite shots in Order of the Phoenix was when she was running through the Ministry of Magic, just flailing...

Mikey: Away from Harry?

Andrew: Yeah, flailing her arms...

Mikey: It was amazing, it really was. I'm looking at a shot right now at 2:05. She's in the Great Hall, and she just has the biggest grin. It's like, "Aw, she's looking at puppies! No, she's destroying the big old realm."

Andrew: Right. She's so happy. Yeah.

Matt: Yeah.

Andrew: Yeah, so that's...

Matt: I just love - she just looks like a loose cannon, and that's what Bellatrix is.

Andrew: What she is, yeah. So I really look forward to seeing her in this film and the next one. It looks like - I'm looking at the shot at 1:55, and she's walking behind the rest of the Death Eaters. You see Draco there.

Matt: Yeah.

Andrew: Anyone else that we recognize? It's hard to tell from the back of the head.

Matt: Well, it's the same people that we see when she's conjuring up the Dark Mark.

Micah: Dark Mark, yeah.

Matt: We see the brother and sister, and Fenir Greyback.

Andrew: Ah. Yeah, yeah, yeah...

Micah: Yeah.

Matt: So we have a good group.

Andrew: Is Snape there, too?

Matt: Do you think it's kind of ironic that Bellatrix is on the Gryffindor table, kicking all the stuff down?

Andrew: [laughs] Yes, it is actually.

Matt: Yeah.

Micah: She actually lets out a war cry. Do you have that audio? It's pretty funny.

Andrew: Where is it? What's the TM? TC?

Matt: Well, it's like, 1:56, 1:55.

Mikey: I think she actually says, "Hiya!" You know, karate style.

Micah: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. She does.

Andrew: I'll play it.

Mikey: She does!

[Trailer clip plays]

Andrew: [laughs] Yeah, she's like, "Yah!"

Matt: Yeah.

Andrew: "Kung fu!"

Matt: That's inserted, though, because her mouth isn't even moving.

Andrew: Oh, well that just ruins it.

Matt: Yeah, sorry to ruin it.

Mikey: Oh. And you know, Matt, if you really want to get into that, theres a lot of spots here that I see ADR going off the wall like crazy, okay? They've put a lot of stuff in here.

Matt: Must be from ADR...

Mikey: It's not just that. I think she's just unique and able to make those kung fu noises, because she's so into this scene.

Matt: Mhm.

[Andrew plays Snape clip]

Matt: Oh, it is?

[Everyone laughs]

Mikey: Let's move on.

Matt: Okay.



Trailer: Dumbledore's Death?


Andrew: No, that was Snape telling us the show's over. Just kidding. Okay. In the last shot of Harry, at 2:13, that's the - is that the last thing on our list? Yes. 2:13, 2:13...Oh yeah, it's Harry. Where is he?

Mikey: I have no clue. He's got a green glow...

Andrew: I think we've seen...

Matt: Wait.

Andrew: ...this shot before in a previous trailer.

Matt: Wait, give me a code mark.

Andrew: 2:13. He's looking around, and then he looks up.

Matt: Okay. This - I swear, this is the part where Harry witnesses Dumbledore dying.

Andrew: Oh!

Mikey: I can see it! That can be the Avada Kedavra curse.

Andrew: Yeah.

Matt: Because we were told that he's not under the Petrificus Totalus. He was hiding underneath it, and then he sees Snape give him the "sh" face, and then goes into the office.

Andrew: Yeah, the clock tower, that makes sense.

Matt: This is definitely - he's watching it from the clock tower or something.

Andrew: Right, right. All right. Cool stuff. So let's call Laura and get her thoughts, but also something to sort of speculate about, you guys may remember that a couple of weeks ago the trailer was at Show West. It was a big convention, do you guys remember hearing about that?

Matt: Yeah.

Andrew: And there was a trailer - they played a trailer there. Presumably it was this one, right?

Matt: I would think so, maybe. Yeah.

Andrew: I think so, too. But Micah, could you run through the rules, please, for callers when they do start to call in? We're not taking calls yet, so don't call yet, but Micah, could you explain to them what the rules are, please?

Micah: Sure.

Andrew: While I get Laura's number ready.

Micah: So when you guys call in, please, no shout outs, no plugs, mute your stream, and have a question or comment ready.

Andrew: Prepared, yeah.

Matt: Yeah.

Micah: You want me to give the numbers, too, or are you going to do that?

Andrew: No, you can. Go for it.

Micah: All right, the numbers: In the US, 1-218-20-MAGIC, and in the UK, 02081440677.



Laura's Thoughts


Andrew: Yes, but do not call in yet. We'll take calls later on. Right now, I'm getting Laura in here, using our wonderful world of Skype. It's now ringing. [whispers] Laura.

Laura: Hello?

Andrew: [in a foreign accent] "Hello, pizza delivery for Laura Thompson."

Laura: Oh, that's a really terrible accent, Andrew.

Andrew: Oh, sorry. [laughs]

Matt: Yeah, that was really bad.

Andrew: Darn it! One day I'll get you, Laura, one day!

Laura: Okay.

Micah: Should've played Snape for her.

Andrew: Well, Laura, thanks for coming on. I know you weren't able to get a room in the library.

Laura: Yeah, it's terrible. Imagine all these college students, wanting to study.

Andrew: [laughs] During finals time.

Laura: Jerks. [laughs]

Andrew: You should have banged on all the windows and been like, "I need to podcast! Get out!"

Laura: [laughs] They probably would have asked me what a podcast was.

Andrew: "Study your tech books! You'll know!" Anyway, Laura, what'd you think of the trailer? You saw it earlier, what'd you think?

Laura: I thought it was awesome.

Andrew: Yes.

Laura: All around really cool. I was glad to see that they included more of the plot in the trailer...

Andrew: Right.

Matt: Yeah.

Laura: ...like the Draco stuff and the Snape stuff, because originally I thought with the other trailers it just was a lot of focus on Voldemort, so...

Andrew: Yeah.

Laura: ...I thought it was really awesome. And I liked it a lot.

Andrew: Yeah.

Laura: And it's really cold, so that's why I'm, like...

Andrew: Shivering?

Laura: I sound like I'm shivering. It's freezing outside.

Andrew: Is this your favorite trailer yet? Would you agree that it's the best one?

Laura: Yes, definitely.

Andrew: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Laura: You mean of this movie?

Andrew: Yeah, of the movies, yeah.

Laura: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Andrew: How about all time? We haven't asked that question yet.

Mikey: Ooh.

Laura: Oh.

Matt: Oh.

Laura: I kind of liked the Order of the Phoenix one...

Andrew: Yeah.

Laura: ...the theatrical one.

Matt: I kind of agree with...

Laura: Yeah.

Matt: Yeah.

Mikey: I have to say, I really liked Goblet of Fire trailers.

Andrew: Yeah.

Laura: Oh yeah?

Mikey: I liked those a lot.

Mikey: I would have to say I really liked the Goblet of Fire trailers.

Andrew: Yeah.

Mikey: I liked those a lot, I really did. But I think I liked this one out of all them for the Half-Blood Prince.

Matt: Yeah.

Andrew: The trailer editors really are great. I mean, these people who edit them together, they create emotion, they create a rush...

Matt: They really get the best trailer music, too, for each trailer.

Laura: Yeah. Well, and I have to say, I really liked how this time - I feel like a lot of time in these trailers, they pick the one funny moment in the movie and they keep putting it in the trailers over and over again.

Andrew: Yeah.

Laura: And I can only think of one moment in there that was meant to be humorous, and the rest of it was really serious.

Andrew: Right.

Laura: So I liked that a lot.

Andrew: Yeah. Me too. And I think we were - go ahead, Micah.

Micah: No, I was going to say, there was no "Chosen One" crap.

Andrew: Oh, yeah. [laughs]

Matt: Yeah.

Andrew: Instead we got the classic "Hermione beating Ron" shot.

Matt: Mhm.

Laura: Yeah.

Andrew: Or spanking him, yeah. Anyway, Laura, we'll let you go. We don't want you to freeze in...

Laura: Yeah, I'm walking back to my apartment.

Andrew: ...wonderfully cool Maryland. All right, well, enjoy the trailer, and we'll talk to you later.

Mikey: Bye, Laura.

Laura: Yeah, thanks for calling. Bye, guys.

Andrew: No problem.

Matt: Bye, Laura.

Micah: I've actually got a question, though.

Andrew: What's that?

Andrew: Oh, and in the meantime - hold on one second, Micah - you guys can start calling in now. Theres a lot of people listening, and when there are a lot of people listening, a lot of people call in, and Skype literally overloads and it gets insane. So if you're having a problem calling in, that may be why. And we are starting to get calls now, but go ahead, Micah.

Matt: Micah, if you have a question, please call the MuggleCast hotline.

[Andrew laughs]



Trailer: Hedwig's Theme


Micah: Oh, okay. I'll be right back, hold on. No, at the end, was "Hedwig's Theme" darker than it's ever been before? I mean, I never heard it that deep.

Matt: Oh yeah, definitely.

Andrew: Oh yeah, let's play it. It was a very impactful one because it went straight from the sound effects to "Hedwig's Theme", where usually it's a sort of a pause, and then it starts. [Hums "Hedwig's Theme"]

Micah: Mhm.

Andrew: So here, we'll play it.

Mikey: Wait...

Andrew: Hold on a second.

[Trailer clip plays]

Andrew: Ooh!

Matt: It's sort of telling you it's almost the end of the series, but not quite.

Andrew: [laughs] Yeah.

Matt: It's like: [Hums dramatic version of "Hedwig's Theme"]

Andrew: "We're not letting you go just yet."

Matt: "It ain't over yet."

Mikey: "Two more movies to give us money."

[Andrew laughs]

Mikey: I mean... yeah.

Andrew: To give us laughs. But you know what else...

Mikey: Yeah, and cry.

Andrew: Yeah. We're going...

[Mikey starts to say something]

Andrew: Hold on. One second, Mikey. Let me get the first call now, because everyone's calling in like crazy.

Matt: Okay.



Live Call: Inferi


Andrew: First call is from Sasha. Hello, Sasha, you're on MuggleCast Live this evening.

Caller: Hello?

Andrew: Hi, Sasha. How are you?

Matt: Hey.

Caller: Oh my god! Wait one second, let me mute my...

Andrew: Oh, wonderful. Welcome to the MuggleCast trailer bonanza! That's what I'm calling it.

Caller: Hi.

Andrew: Hi.

Mikey: Hello.

Andrew: So what's your question or comment?

Caller: Okay, I wanted to talk about the Inferi.

Andrew: Yes.

Caller: I know you already talked about it, but this was the thing I was going to say about the last trailer. They look kind of like skeletons.

Matt: Well, they are dead.

[Andrew laughs]

Caller: I know, but they don't have bodies, though. They kind of do, but they're - you know what I mean?

Andrew: Yeah. No, I know what you're saying. They are very... [sighs] Okay, when we were on the set, they explained how they were designed, and you're absolutely right. And we're allowed to release another preview of our set visit one week from today, so maybe that's what my set visit preview will be about. Because you're right, and they put a lot of care into doing that. They are skeletal, yeah.

Matt: Yeah. But they really look like the way a dead body would look if it was in the water while it was decomposing, too.

Micah: Yeah, just...

Matt: Because they decompose differently in the water than they do if they were buried or something.

Andrew: Right.

Caller: Yeah, that's true. I just pictured them as more of a body, I guess.

Andrew: Yeah, but I think it is a cool representation.

Caller: Yeah, I know. It's definitely cool, because they make it all scary.

Andrew: Yeah.

Caller: Because I remember watching the interviews and stuff, the behind the scenes with Goblet of Fire, how they make all the CGI stuff really scary.

Andrew: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Matt: Well, I think a lot of people think that way, too, Sasha, because when we think of a zombie - because that's what they said in the book - we think of regular zombie movies where they're just regular people with decomposition. Like, you can see their skeletons a little bit through their skin.

Caller: Yeah, that's what I was saying.

Matt: Yeah. So I think that's just a common thought that a lot of people have when they think of a zombie.

Caller: Yeah.

Andrew: But once you see it, you'll be like, "Oh, that's pretty awesome." Because we just see them fly by, so you don't really get a full look at them. You know what I mean?

Matt: Mhm.

Caller: Yeah, totally.

Andrew: Yeah. All right, well thanks for calling in, Sasha! Where're you calling from?

Caller: Rhode Island.

Andrew: Rhode Island, nice.

Matt: Nice.

Caller: Yeah.

Andrew: Were you going to say something else?

Caller: And, Andrew?

Andrew: Yeah?

Caller: Just last night I was listening to your Smart Mouths: Episode 10, and you might want to have kept that story to yourself.

Andrew: [laughs] Sorry, I just...

[Caller laughs]

Andrew: I couldn't resist.

Matt: Hm.

Andrew: All right...

Caller: Okay.

Andrew: Thank you for calling in, Sasha!

Caller: Thank you!

Andrew: Bye. Oh, I cut her off. Whoops. Anyway, yeah, that was one thing that we saw when I visited the set last year, but all that stuff's embargoed, so maybe I'll make that my set visit preview. I'll give you a preview of that, because they really put a lot of care into designing those guys. All right, let's take another call: This is April. Hello, April, you're on MuggleCast Live!



Live Call: Teary Moments


Caller: All right, I'm going to mute my stream. Okay. [laughs] Hello!

Andrew: [laughs] Hello!

Caller: Hi, how are you?

Andrew: I'm good, how are you? Where're you calling from?

Caller: I'm good. I'm calling from Jersey City, New Jersey.

Andrew: Oh, Jersey City! North Jersey! [laughs]

Caller: Yeah, North Jersey, represent. [laughs]

Andrew: [laughs] Represent!

Caller: [laughs] Okay...

Andrew: Anyway, what do you think of the trailer?

Caller: The trailer was, like, the best trailer ever.

Andrew: Yes.

Caller: Yeah, it was a good mixture. Everybody was well represented, and I cried for no reason.

Andrew and Matt: Aw!

[April laughs]

Matt: At least you cried.

Andrew: Do you think you'll cry during the movie? I mean, were there any specific scenes? I know you said no reason, but...

Caller: I really cried when Snape said, "It's over."

Andrew: Yeah.

Caller: Because that just reminded me that we really only have two more years.

[Matt laughs]

Andrew: [laughing] I know, you're right!

Caller: Right! So that sentence hit home for a lot of reasons, not just for HBP, but...

Andrew: Yeah.

Caller: Deathly Hallows and everything else.

Andrew: They shouldn't be reminding us.

[Andrew plays Snape clip]

Caller: I know!

[Caller and Matt laugh]

Andrew: Not cool. But yeah...

Caller: That's basically it. It just made everything hit home.

Andrew: Yeah, it did. It did. I hear you, and I think a lot of the fans hear you. In the chat a lot of people are saying they cried, too, so...

Matt: Mhm.

[April laughs]

Andrew: You're not the only one.

[Matt laughs]

Caller: Yeah.

Andrew: All right, April, well thanks for calling in from Jersey City!

Caller: No problem! Thanks for taking my call, guys.

Andrew: No problem. Have a good night in Jersey!

Mikey: Byeee!

Matt: Bye!

Andrew: My hometown. That's my home state, guys. I came from New Jersey.

Mikey: Woot, woot!

Matt: Woo.



Live Call: It's Over, Time to Go


Andrew: Next up on the calls: Liliana Potter is your alias. Hello!

Caller: Hi! One second, let me just...

Andrew: Thank you.

Caller: Hi. I'm calling from Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Andrew: I've got to say - oh, can you turn your stream down more? [laughs]

Caller: Oh yeah. One sec, sorry.

Andrew: I was about to just say, we have the best-trained callers in all of Skype-world...

Mikey: Aw...

Andrew: ...but then I heard myself talking. [laughs]

Mikey: You were going to say it too soon, Andrew. Too soon.

Andrew: Well, it's very good, because as soon as we pick up a call, they say, "Hold on, let me mute my stream." That's perfect, that's what I like to hear.

Matt: That's what I like to hear.

Andrew: Anyway, go ahead. What was your favorite part of the film? Or what do you want to say about it?

Caller: Oh, well I was just calling - I liked the trailer a lot...

Andrew: Yeah.

Caller: ...and I thought the Draco/Harry fight scene was pretty cool.

Andrew: Yeah, it was.

Matt: Yeah.

Caller: But I just found the page in the book where Snape says, "It's over."

Andrew: Mhm?

Caller: So it's page 598 of the American version...

Andrew: Yeah.

Caller: And I think he's running away. I don't know, did you guys already find that, or...?

Andrew: Well, yeah, some people in the chat said it was right after the Death Eaters - or right when the Death Eaters - what was it, guys? Sorry, I'm...

Caller: Yeah.

Matt: When they're...

Caller: Harry's running after him, and it says, "He heard the hated voice shout, 'It's over. Time to go,' and saw Snape disappearing around the corner at the far end of the corridor." So...

Andrew: [Imitating Snape] "It's over. Time to go."

Matt: "Time to go."

Caller: Yeah, so I just thought I'd call in and say that I'd found that, so...

Andrew: Cool!

Matt: That's great.

Andrew: Thank you.

Matt: Awesome!

Andrew: Thank you for helping us out. That's why...

Caller: Thanks for listening, guys!

Andrew: ...we need to re-read the books. Oh, well, thank you for calling in!

Caller: Yeah, you guys are awesome. Thanks!

Andrew: Thank you!

Matt: Aw, thanks!

Andrew: Bye-bye!

Caller: Bye!

Mikey: Byeee!

Matt: Byeee!

Andrew: Mikey, what's with you and your "byeee"?

Matt: I know, you just come out of - you don't say anything for the entire conversation, and then when she goes, "Bye," you go...

Andrew: "Byeeee!"

Matt: [in a deep voice] "...Byeee!"

Mikey: I was looking up the "It's over," okay? I'm sorry...

Andrew: All right.

Mikey: I got distracted. It happens.

Andrew: All right.

Matt: It does.

Andrew: By the way, guys, it doesn't seem like the Skype-in number is working. Everyone's just Skyping us, so if you want a shot at calling us, call us on Skype. It's the username MuggleCast. I do not know why - I'm not getting any numbers from the phone line.

Mikey: Actually, you know what, guys? I'm looking at the - Snape actually says, "'It's over. Time to go.' And he saw Snape disappearing."

Andrew: Oh.

Mikey: So Snape is yelling that at the Death Eaters to leave.

Andrew: Right.

Mikey: Instead of them like gawking at like the flying down, dying Dumbledore, it's like, "It's time to go," and then Harry saw Snape disappearing around the corner at the far end of the court.

Andrew: Yeah. Nice.

Matt: Nice.

Andrew: Cool.

Mikey: There we go, see I actually looked it up, that's why I was a little distracted.

Andrew: Good job.

Matt: Well thank you for your call, Mikey.

Mikey: I returned, yeah, yeah okay, bye guys, thanks.

Andrew: Bye.

Matt: Bye.

Andrew: I'm waiting for a guy...

Mikey: No, no, no, I'm sorry...



Live Call: An Untrained Caller


Andrew: I see - I see guys call - oh - [makes frustrated noise]. I see guys call and then - all right, okay, here we go. Hey Logan! Hello?

Caller: Hello?

Andrew: What's up Logan? Hello?

Caller: Nothing.

Andrew: Listen to us on Skype, what's going on?

Caller: Nothing, I just thought that - yeah, hello?

Matt: Hello?

Andrew: Okay. See that's what we call an untrained trailer - or caller. That's why I jinxed myself, as soon as I said - hello, Nick! Nick?



Live Call: Who Edits The Trailers


Mikey: Hello?

Caller: Oh hey, I'd like to order a pepperoni pizza?

Andrew: Ah I'm sorry the pizza place is closed.

Matt: No, that was me, that was me.

Mikey: Oh, what's up, did you order enough for all of us?

Matt: [laughs] No, just me.

Caller: Ah I might be able to spare a slice.

[Matt and Mikey laugh]

Andrew: What's up dude?

Caller: Not a whole lot.

Andrew: What did you think of the trailer?

Caller: I definitely think it's the best trailer yet.

Andrew: Yeah.

Caller: You know I have to say that I like the editing - you know the way they cut it all together, you know I think it really gives us a good representation of the movie we're going to get to see.

Andrew: Yeah, it really does look great. Those guys who edit, they're the best. I wonder if they edit the movies.

Matt: No, because the movies are crap.

[Everyone laughs]

Andrew: Well aren't - Mikey they - they - there's different - there's certain, like businesses right? Like WB sends them a boatload of clips and they just edit it together right? A separate company?

Mikey: Yeah, yeah, yeah like right away I can - actually I wouldn't be surprised if like Skip Films cut this. There's basically like three or four major editing houses that would do this type of film.

Andrew: Oh okay.

Mikey: And all they do is trailers. And there's actually a - there's actually a company called Skip Films and all they do is like a lot of the fast-paced action, you know, cut...

Andrew: Cool.

Mikey: You know trailer stuff?

Andrew: Yeah.

Mikey: And actually - it's actually a term in the industry. Oh, we need to skip that up - means you're taking the style of trailer editing.

Andrew: Oh, nice.

Mikey: Uh huh, so if they need to skip it up if it wasn't so - you know the way they wanted it, they Skip it up a little bit...

Andrew: Yeah.

Mikey: And Skip Films is the company that does that.

Andrew: Cool.

Mikey: Yeah, just a little insight. I'm so far away from Hollywood it - I miss - I miss it a little.

[Matt laughs]

Andrew: You're still connected.

Matt and Caller: Yeah.

Mikey: It's all right, I still know what's up. I still talk to those guys.

Andrew: Nick, where are you calling from?

Caller: Youngstown, Ohio.

Andrew: Youngstown, Ohio, cool! Getting people from all over. Well thanks dude, for calling in.

Caller: No problem guys.

Andrew: No problem, cool, see ya!

Caller: Thanks.

Matt: Bye, Nick.

Andrew:: Yep, bye.

Matt: We're getting closer to the West Coast.

Andrew: I thought Nick was one of us, I was getting confused. I was like - is someone playing our voices back? You know what I mean?

Mikey: Yeah.

Andrew: Oh, so many people are calling. Some people I recognize on here and I want to take their calls but - it's the luck of the draw here, because people are calling...



What's Up With The Date?


Matt: Did we even talk about the date at the end of the trailer yet?

Mikey: No we didn't, we completely skipped over that.

Andrew: [laughs] Oh yeah, what's up with the date?

Matt: Yeah, I was just thinking that.

Mikey: It's like it just comes out today and it's like - you guys have already announced your change in the date.

Andrew: Yeah.

Mikey: What's up with that?

Andrew: I know - yeah it was kind of weird. Hey you know what? Let's take one more call and then we'll get into the news and then if we have a little more time we'll continue taking some calls because I know obviously a lot of people are calling. There's that - 1,050 people listening to us this evening. Happy Thursday everybody!

Micah: Yeah we got some Twitter responses too.

Andrew: Oh you want to read through those?

Micah: Sure.



Live Call: Attack on Diagon Alley


Andrew: Right here let me take one more call and you get those ready and then I will - we'll get to the Twitter questions. Hello Carly, you're on MuggleCast Live.

Caller: Wait, seriously?

Andrew: Yeah, seriously.

Matt: Yeah.

Caller: Awesome!

Andrew: Yeah, just mute your UStream.

Caller: Oh, dude, sorry.

Andrew: There we go.

Caller: Is that muted?

Andrew: Yeah.

Matt: Yeah.

Caller: All right, sweet.

Andrew: Good job.

Caller: All right. I actually had a question.

Andrew: What's that?

Caller: On like - time code about 1:09, 1:10, is that still Muggle London? Or is that Diagon Alley or something?

Matt: No, it's - it's Diagon Alley.

Andrew: Yeah that - yeah.

Caller: Okay.

Andrew: Yeah, because you see the little - the little guys walking around too.

Matt: Yeah because the guy who's doing the trailer voice - he goes, "from our world to theirs" or something like that.

Andrew: From their world to our world.

Matt: Yeah so it's kind of a transition between both worlds.

Andrew: Yeah.

Caller: Oh okay, cool.

Matt: Yeah.

Caller: Oh is Fenrir Greyback just like robbing some random woman?

Matt: Yeah, oh I - I don't know if it's a woman because wizards all dress weird but yeah he - he does - he - I think that's his job, he collects, because he did that in Deathly Hallows where he just collects people who aren't of a...

Mikey: You know what, actually guys I think that - what's his name Wandmaker, because he has all these tools around his belt. And it's covered up.

Caller: Oh yeah.

Mikey: It looks like it could be...

Andrew: Olli- Ollivander. Olli- Olli- Olli...

Mikey: Yeah, Ollivander.

Andrew: What's wrong with me?

Mikey: Ollivander.

Andrew: Ollivander.

Mikey: I wanted to say Ollivander, but no.

Andrew: Ollivander.

Mikey: Ollivander.

Andrew: Ollivander. What's wrong with me?

Mikey: I know, I know.

Matt: There's something wrong with you.

Andrew: Okay, well I'm going to show the people here on UStream, since I can say those words correctly. Yeah, he's grabbing...

Matt: He's grabbing some- a guy. It has to be Ollivander.

Andrew: It's not Ollivander.

Matt: Because he's the only guy in Diagon Alley.

Andrew: Is it a guy?

Mikey: That we know about.

Matt: Yeah. [laughs]

Caller: It looks like she's- It looks like they're wearing like a skirt. I guess that's like a...

Andrew: No, no.

Caller: One piece or something.

Andrew: He's wearing a tool belt.

Mikey: A work apron. It's a tool belt/work apron type thing and he has like a hood on. So I think we're not supposed to know who it is and maybe it'll be revealed that he'd been taken at that time, you know, in the next movie or something.

Andrew: That would make sense, since they got to set that up, so...

Matt: Yeah.

Mikey: Yeah.

Caller: Kind of reminds me of Pirates of the Caribbean - that scene where they're all running through.

Matt: Yeah.

Caller: And like blowing stuff up.

Andrew: Right, exactly.

Mikey: In the first one.

[Andrew laughs]

Caller: Yeah. [laughs]

Andrew: All right, Carly, thank you for calling in.

Caller: All right, thank you.

Andrew: Buh-bye!

Matt and Mikey: Bye.
