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):
