New Deathly Hallows video features Bellatrix, Scrimgeour and Moody scenes

EDIT: Technically speaking, this is not a TV spot.  A TV spot is a video that\’s 30 seconds in length that will appear during the commercials.  The piece below is 90 seconds and has not aired on television. \r\n A new TV spot for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 has made its way online. \r\n It is mostly a condensed version of the trailer we saw last month, but features a few new scenes, including Bellatrix casting a spell with Ron and Hermione restrained in the background (0:23), Moody avoiding getting kicked in the head by Thestrals (1:09), and Scrimgeour approaching the Burrow (0:24). \r\n While we don\’t believe this to be the same spot as the one mentioned in the previous post, we do believe this to be similar to the spot that aired at the 2010 Scream Awards.

Fan of the Week: Roonil – October 17, 2010

ROONIL Age 20 – Canada   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? 1999: I had just moved in from Iran to Malaysia. I was 9-years-old and still learning my “hi” from my “high”. My English was very wheezy to say the least, and to say I would like to eat an apple was already a feat. One day, my English teacher from Grade 5 brought in some books to sell in class for some reason. Among the pile of battered books was one with a peculiar cover. A boy flying on a broomstick through an arch, which had the engraving of “Harry Potter& the Sorcerer’s Stone” on it. YOU GOT IT! The American edition of the first book! Looking back at the cover now (which has sustained numerous stains, has scotch-tape bindings where it just couldn’t resist being flown around across the word, and a binding so bent from reading it more than 10 times that it’s just waiting to be flipped open again) I can say that for $5, this was a bargain! But now back to the story. First evening back home after buying the Sorcerer’s Stone, I sat down to read a just ... Read More »

New Deathly Hallows TV spot airs during NBC’s School Pride

UPDATE: While we do not have the TV spot yet, we know it was 30 seconds in length and has not surfaced online.  We expect WB will release the spot on Monday, as they did when a previous TV spot debuted on a Friday. On Friday night during NBC’s School Pride, a new television spot aired for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1. You can read the description below: \”It first showed Moody tapping his staff on the ground outside Privet Drive. Then it showed 7 Harry Potters getting dressed; 2 of which are shirtless. Then we see Ron and Harry in the tent looking at something on the table, which begins to shoots flames. Then we see Bill/Fleur on a Thestral. Then the trio almost getting run over by a bus. Then what comes after is a blur, but I do remember Polyjuiced Harry flushing himself down the toilet with Polyjuiced Ron peeking from the next cubicle saying, ‘That’s disgusting.’\” If anyone captured it or sees it again, please e-mail tips at staff dot mugglenet dot com. We’ll post it as soon as it is available. Read More »
