Behind the Magic of HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE

As I type this, the clock on Mugglenet that is counting down to the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince reads 1 day, 7 hours, 36 minutes, and 22 seconds. While you wait patiently, here’s some choice linkage!

Yahoo! has an exclusive new scene of Harry and Dumbledore discussing horcruxes. Mugglenet has links to a five-part YouTube capture of an ITV special on the making of the new film (part one is embedded above, and the remaining parts are hereherehere, and here). And, if that still isn’t enough Harry for you, check out this interview with director David Yates on the forthcoming film adaptations of the seventh book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, wherein he calls the kiss between Hermione and Ron “a hell of a snog.”
