Check it out! The new trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince which is being aired in Japan, is now online here via YouTube. Enjoy!

UPDATE: Thanks to our hardworking crew, we now have the screencaps here in our image galleries!

Please note: This video contains Japanese subtitles and announcer, but you can also distinctly hear new dialogue in English from Dumbledore, Hermione and especially Snape as he sneers "How grand it must be to be the chosen one."

Thanks so much to for the heads up!

OK, I’ve come up with “rough” translations of what the Japanese voice-over guy is saying. Hope this helps-
0:15-0:18 “At last, the climax begins!”

0:29-0:36 “As Voldemort gains more power, Hogwarts is joined by an individual with critical information.”

0:48-0:49: “What is the aim of Dumbledore?”

1:27-1:30: “The key to everything lies in the past.”

1:38-1:42: "Will Harry succeed in uncovering the truth?

1:45-1:47: “And what is the fate of the world?”

1:48-1:50: “The final battle begins!”

1:54-2:00 “The sixth installment of the biggest-ever fantasy series, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, will be released this summer.”

According to the person who posted this video on youtube, the trailer was shown at the end of a recent airing of the GOF (or is it POA, as someone guessed in his/her comment here?).

That would be GoF — you can see the GoF credits (VERY distinctive) in the lower right corner of the screen.

Maybe this is the “new trailer” we may be seeing shortly (this weekend even?) in theatres . . .

Teddy bear wrote: …“The funniest part is where Bellatrix is jumping up and down when she sets Hagrids hut on fire. But I thought Hagrids hut was suppose to be on fire in the last movie. The Deathly Hallows.”

No, like the book, the deatheaters set Hagrid´s hut on fire in this one. Hagrid is fighting against them, Buckbead arrives and save Harry – but that is probably cut. Harry running after Snape is however not cut!

loved DD’s humor, snapes’s line and the almost kiss.

If that really is how Harry and Ginny’s kiss is going to be, I’ll be very disapointed. =/

This is looking like that aqward Cho kiss:
“Here Cho! Stand there and I’ll stand here! Let’s not touch anything but our lips while this plant grows over our heads!! Sounds good?”

I wanted to see that “who cares who is watching? I’m going to jump to ginny and kiss her full in the mouth because I can’t take this anymore” kiss.

As someone had stated before, so much more new stuff than I expected. I thought most if not all would be footage that we had already seen. Very nice.

Wonder how many times they’ll say the words “the chosen one” in the movie… It’ll be a good drinking game, to count them, I’m sure.

Obrigada pela tradução, Luke Debien. ;)

“Wonder how many times they’ll say the words “the chosen one” in the movie…"
Plus, Harry would never be happy about it… Sometimes WB sucks!

Adiaram por questões financeira. Em Julho deste ano a Warner tem como ganhar mais dinheiro.
Este site é muito legal mesmo! Adoro! Mas já existem site de HP brasileiros com seu público. Não existe, pelo menos pra mim, porque adaptar uma versão brazuca do leaky. Embora isso pudesse ser legal, não tem, pelo menos pra mim, como substituir o quarteto do pottercast.

Agora em inglês pra quem não fala nosso idioma…

Warner pushed the movie to July for financial reasons. They will be able to make more money this way.
This site (leaky) really is cool! I love it! But there already are brazilians HP website and they have their public. There is no reason, I believe, for a brazilian version of leaky. As cool as that might be, there is no way, at least for me, anyone can replace the fantastic pottercast quartet.

I feel bad writing something in another language that isn’t english here. Feels… unpolite. =p

"Macnair, if Buckbeak has indeed been stolen, do you really think the thief will have led him away on foot?" said Dumbledore, still sounding amused. "Search the skies, if you will... Hagrid, I could do with a cup of tea. Or a large brandy."
