Harry Potter Excitement

Post Details:
• New “Harry Potter” trailer debuts
• Excitement ensues


Today, I digress…

Last night the official trailer was posted for “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” on AOL. The sixth movie will open in American theaters in 114 days – on Nov. 21, 2008.

I was very excited to watch the trailer – to say the least. Reading the book can be compared to riding an emotional roller coaster. I was a wreck upon completing the book – after experiencing many debilitating moments. (But no spoilers here…)

The trailer was darker and more nerve-wracking than earlier trailers in the series. While less than 90 seconds, the preview provided fans with sneak peeks at young Tom Riddle, among other characters, and Professor Dumbledore’s adventure inside the bewitched cave.

All and all, it’s going to be tough to stave off my excitement until November, but since reading the final book in the series, “Deathly Hallows,” last summer, there’s always something to look forward to. In the meantime, I’ll continue re-watching the movies, rereading the books and re-listening to the soundtracks.

Here is the synopsis:
Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort's defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, the well-connected and unsuspecting bon vivant Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information.

Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Harry finds himself more and more drawn to Ginny, but so is Dean Thomas. And Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, only she hadn't counted on Romilda Vane's chocolates! And then there's Hermione, simpering with jealously but determined not to show her feelings. As romance blossoms, one student remains aloof. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.
