Lend an ear and you shall hear... lovely new excerpts from the score to the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The official HBP website has received a makeover this morning, and fans can now hear a slightly revised Hedwig's theme, plus see the recently released posters, with a large image of Harry greeting you, along with the trailer from last November. Finally, note the gallery has been updated with all the officially released images over the past months, plus the cast and crew names have been added to the bottom of the page as seen on the posters as well. Enjoy!
Thanks to all who owled!
*For those who asked, indeed composer Nicholas Hooper has returned again to score Half-Blood Prince, building upon the lovely original Hedwig's Theme by John Williams.
the music is good naturally but please WB let J.Williams score Deathly Hallows.His score of the first three movies has hence been a synonym for Harry Potter.In every documentary,feature,trailer we hear his music.Wouldn’t be great to let him compose more for the last movie?N.Hooper is inexperienced,compared to Williams,who wrote music for star wars,indianna jones and many other soundtrack classics.I have created a group in myLeaky for anyone who wants to express their wish for Williams to score DH.If you share my point of view,please join!
I would like to have Hans Zimmer for the music in the seventh and eight film. His scores are really beautiful and energetic, especially in the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy.
But John Williams is also a magnificant composer as herpo recalls. He’s made the theme of Harry Potter!!!!
Lunalovegoodlove, it does make sense =).
That bit sounds very nice. The music sounds so classy, and elegant, and relaxing, like chamber music (well, duh!).
I too agree with bringing John Williams back for the finale, what a great closure it would be =D.
Well, I love Williams’ original work, but Hooper has added something to it. It’s really quite pretty. I look forward to hearing more of the soundtrack.
I love it :) But I do hope that John Williams comes back for DH. It would make everything magical again. (Not that it’s not, but something about Williams is magical.) Imagine if Hedwig’s Theme just played softly after the movie ended … so powerful, so beautiful!
