The newest episode of PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast, is now online with fresh discussion of the latest Harry Potter trailer (which can be viewed right here) to appear online.  The show starts out with Sue's News, which contains the information behind one of the working titles of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, more video from The Tales of Beedle the Bard release, charitable donations from J. K. Rowling and Emma Watson, Deathly Hallows test shoots, and, of course, the new trailer from Japan.  The quartet then focuses on the new trailer, discussing the new clips from the film, actor Alan Rickman (Severus Snape), Greyback and the Death Eaters, Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes, movie Dumbledore vs. book Dumbledore, and much more.  We then take some live calls from listeners who give their opinions on this latest look at the upcoming Half-Blood Prince film.  We then bring you the next installment of the PotterCast Acting Troupe, which features the continuing journey of young Albus Severus during his first year at Hogwarts.  The show then wraps up in the drums with a most special announcement about the next episode of PotterCast, LeakyCon 2009 registration rates, and a reminder to be sure to keep your eye on for more fun.  To listen, just hit the "Play" button on the right side of the page (->), or use iTunes, or direct download.

Grrr you people, snape shhing harry DOES NOT give away the plot. He shhh’s him, harry thinks he’s on his side, snape goes up and kills dumbledore so that tells us no he’s not on the good side, Harry is betrayed, and therefore chases them off. The audience are left with clear proof that snape is on the bad side.

Other RIckman roles that are un-Snape — The Metatron in Dogma, and Alexander Dane in Galaxy Quest.

Well stef, that’s your opinion. In my opinion he does a great job with what he is given, same happens with Rickman. They are great actors, they hve proved it outside Potter. They do all the can with those horrible scripts they are given, which degrades their characters so other less important ones will have more importance than they have in the books. The problem is not the actors, the problem is the scriptwriter and the producers, because the directors have changed so they can not be blamed.

Ok I’m listening to it now. I saw the trailer before listening to the show. I’ve watched it a few times infact, and I must say complaining about the Snape shooshing is kinda unnecesary, because we don’t know when that happens, or even if it will actually take place in the movie. We know from previous trailers that there are scenes in them that we never see in the actual theatrical release. That shoosh may have been put in to incur discussion from those fans who have only seen the movies—those who have no intentions of reading the novels. I just think it’s WAY too early to whack out about facts not in evidence so to speak.

As far as Rickman goes, I kinda agree with the view that we see so little of Snape in the movies, that when we do it’s usually in the same or similar situations. I’ve seen him in loads of movies and in the overwhelming majority he acts as the role calls him to act. Some of the roles he’s taken are Snapish roles—those of brooding, surly people, either anti-hero or villain. I know you didn’t mean to offend anyone, and you didn’t offend me. I’m just calling to point that he is called to do such roles more than others, because he’s so good at it.

One word: FINALLY!!

in response to the “what are dumbledore and harry doing in a train station” question i think that is the start of the movie, and how dumbledore picks harry up (since we know there’s no dursley action in this one)

Rotfang, I think that John is right, they are waiting in the underground station waiting for a portal to Narnia….which also explains where Luna gets her hat.
(Bad Aslan joke, sorry).

Hey, I’m surprised you guys don’t know what song “The Drums” are from. It’s just the opening of “Swing, swing, swing” looped, a lot, haha. It’s my favorite jazz song of all time.

Also, didn’t Harry have detentions or something with Harry that kept him from Quidditch? Maybe not, but I personally don’t think that they are at the astronomy tower when Snape “shh’s” him.

Posted by Jake Neuman on January 28, 2009, 05:33 PM report to moderator

It’s at the Tower – and its before he kills Dumbledore. At the time, Harry doesn’t really know what to think of Snape, but at that point decides to trust him and lets him go up to the Tower (note, Harry hides under the lower level). Then Snape goes up and kills Dumbledore, so Harry feels total mistrust in Snape then.

Melissa, what I meant was try watching his performance in Die Hard and thinking of him as a young Snape (or, I suppose, Proto-Snape). It’s hilarious, especially with that ’80s hair.

Posted by Averyfan on January 29, 2009, 03:37 AM report to moderator

I just watched the Japanese trailer, and after pausing it during the infamous “shushing” scene, I don’t think Snape and Harry are on the Astronomy Tower, but in a room (it looks like a spiral staircase behind Snape, the kind we’ve seen in offices). So this may not be in the “killing” scene at all.
