Thanks to our friends at Oclumencia for pointing us to a series of interviews with Vira-Tempo blog where director David Yates and several of the cast members discuss the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince DVD. Links can be found here: Dan Radcliffe, David Yates, Rupert GrintBonnie Wright, and Emma Watson. Of interest are new comments from Dan Radcliffe and David Yates on that Blu-ray live community screening that will take place December 12 as well as a bit on the Deathly Hallows sneak peek as follows:



"So you’re undertaking something of a first with the Blu-ray release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
with the Live Community Screening – can you tell me more about that?
DAVID YATES: "Yes. Technically, it's an extraordinary event. It’s happened before, but not on the global scale that we're going to do because obviously there are Harry Potter fans everywhere on the planet. It's on December 12th of this year and Daniel Radcliffe and I will be answering questions directly from fans via BD-Live about how we made the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and some of the things that were challenging as we made it, and some of the things that I'm sure the fans will begin to know about: Why did we leave some things out? Why did some things come in? And it will be the first time that we'll really engage with that global fan-base on a minute-by-minute basis, so it'll be really cool.

So you’ll be enticing people to take part, obviously?
Dan Radcliffe: Oh, absolutely. I'm actually genuinely very, very excited about it. I think it'll be really cool. I'm looking forward to some absolutely mental questions, and probably questions I haven't been asked before because fans come at the film from a totally different side to journalists. So I imagine there'll be some stuff I've never heard before."

David Yates also speaks to the Deathly Hallows sneak peek we will be getting next month.We thought we'd just give them a few little snippets of what we've been doing over the past seven months as we shot Deathly Hallows. We don't want to give too much away; it's a few little tidbits of some of the sequences that we've been filming. I'm so excited about the two movies that we're making from the Deathly Hallows and we just wanted to give the fans a bit of a taste of that with the Blu-ray.

This sounds great. I didn’t realize it was global. Anyone know how to tune into it or is there a place you go to..? I’m UK based. Not really up on these things.

DustinTheWhite,

YodatheHobbit saying the movies are amazing is no more over the top than your saying they are garbage. Opinions, opinions.

To me, the movies are all true to the books (especially from PoA and forward), which I find amazing. Some stuff is cut, some stuff is added (both for very obvious reasons), but they always keep the central themes and emotions intact. That’s commendable.

Anyway, I can’t wait for this community screening! I’m glad I have a Blu-ray player! :D

Well, Dan’s right. Fan questions are usually more challenging than the ones journalists keep asking.
