USA TODAY: Burrow Attack Scene in Half-Blood Prince a Standout Scene

We've known for many months now, even witnessed footage seen in the newest trailer, that there is to be an attack on the Burrow included in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. In their guide to Summer movies, the USA Today has a very brief preview of the film, and notes the events at the Burrow are a "Standout Scene." While this preview is only a few sentences long, it does contain a cool new detail and slight description of the attack:

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (July 17)
Warner Bros.

The principals (Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint) return for the sixth installment, as Lord Voldemort's threat hangs heavier over Hogwarts as Dumbledore prepares Harry for the final battle with his ultimate foe. Meanwhile, adolescent hormones run wild through the corridors of the academy.

Standout scene: While visiting Harry and the Weasleys, part-werewolf Lupin (David Thewlis) catches a strange scent outdoors. Soon huge snake-like flames slither toward the house as Death Eater Bellatrix Lestrange (Helena Bonham Carter) appears and leads Harry into the marshes while fire begins to consume the porch and walls.

laughs Maybe Lupin will get a name in this movie.

I guess the “part werewolf” thing is supposed to imply the fact that he’s not all werewolf until he’s actually a werewolf on the full moon? Wow, even thinking about explaining that hurt my head.

Lupin’s only part werewolf? Well if he’s sniffing out “strange scents”, maybe he’s part bloodhound? It will be interesting to see how this scene fits in with the book. (It’s actually sorta been bugging me, where it comes from and where it goes…)

I’m looking forward to seeing this scene in the movie. Isn’t Remus all werewolf?

For moviegoers, I think this scene will make the Bellatrix-Molly battle in Deathly Hallows that much more gratifying. (Assuming that battle is included…which it better be!) I am trying to view the films and books as completely separate entities. It allows me to enjoy the films more and obsess less about their accuracy. :-)

Lupin is full werewolf since he transforms at the full moon, and Bill is part werewolf, since he displays many characteristics of a werewolf, but does not transform. I don’t understand them calling Lupin “part” werewolf, since all true werewolves are in a human form for the majority of the time, but transform at the full moon. Maybe with Fenrir, who is an exception in that he resembles his werewolf form even when there is no full moon, threw them off a bit.

Interesting. But I wish the standout scene wasn’t something that didn’t happen in the books!

Sadly this will probably be Lupin’s only scene in the whole movie and we’ll be lucky if he gets more than a single line, sigh. I hope I’m wrong, though. Sounds like a cool scene, though, even if it’s not canon.

It does look like it will be a cool scene. At least from what I saw in the trailer. However, it does bug me that they will add scenes that aren’t in the book the cut ones that are… We’ll see. I hope to does the book justice.

Lupin is one form of werewolf – not a traditional one. He was bitten and changes only at the full moon. There are others born as werewolves (from mating I assume) who are either like that all the time or resemble a werewolf always. Thats what they meant by part-werewolf.

Guess That Book

He racked his brains. A really, really happy memory... one that he could turn into a good, strong Patronus...[br]The moment when he'd first found out he was a wizard, and would be leaving the Dursleys for Hogwarts! If that wasn't a happy memory, he didn't
