Harry Potter Movie Premiere!

Can you imagine being the luckiest person in the world? Well, Scholastic  Kid Reporter, Danielle Azzolina can. The sixth Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, will open in theaters nationwide on July 15 (with a PG rating), but the New York City premiere was on July 9 and she was there to interview the actors on the red carpet!

Can you imagine?! There were tons of reporters and fans screaming for their attention, but Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe, and other actors in the movie all stopped to talk to Danielle and answer her questions. To find out what they had to say about their roles in Half-Blood Prince, read her article. Apparently, Daniel was especially nice.

Danielle also got to speak with the Director David Yates, and ask him which scene had the most bloopers:

“There’s a scene right at the beginning of the movie where we get Daniel, Rupert, and Emma sitting in the Burrow talking about how old Dumbledore is,” he said. “I can’t tell you how many bloopers we got in that scene because they kept cracking up. I had to send them off the set for a while!”

I can’t wait to see the actual scene! I can’t wait to see the whole movie! In the meantime, I can watch this video sneak peek (over and over again):

    I find that the 6th movie was an insult to the wonderful book it was based off of. Most of the good parts that were in the book were left out! Personally, I think that for the time put into making the movie, it could have been much better

    I can’t wait to see the new movie! My friends say its pretty good. My favorite is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, even though I’ve seen The Prisoner of Azkaban way more times.

    This clip is driving me even MORE crazy! I’ve been completely psyched from the beginning, but now I’m practically bursting with excitement! The film looks incredibly well done and I can’t wait to see it in theaters!

    David Yates (director) did a superb job just magnificent to watch, may be Alfonso Cuarón would have made them ROCK. I am a great fan of Harry Potter series. My favorite still remains HP3: Prisoner of Azkaban. But Half Blood was simply outstanding on levels. I’ll be seeing it again Saturday on IMAX which will be even better as it’s one of the original IMAX screens that loom up and over the audience as opposed to newer screens that are just big.
