There is new video online featuring a new scene from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Part of a behind the scenes look at voice dubbing being done for a Spanish edition of the sixth Harry Potter movie, you can see local actors at work, while a clip of Harry (Dan Radcliffe), Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint) traveling on the Hogwarts express discussing the possibility of Draco being a Death Eater  plays in the background.

Thanks so much Daniel for emailing and

That was pretty cool. It must be really hard to match up, but the Rage against the Machine shirt the guy was wearing was RAD!!!!

Hey I’m from Barcelona, Spain. Here’s my translation of Harry’s lines:

Harry: Who were all that people? Don’t you see? It was a ceremony, an iniciation.
(Hermione talks)
Harry: It happened. He’s one of them.
(Hermione & Ron talk)
Harry: Oh, and what was he doing in Borgin and Burkes? Browsing for forniture?
(Ron talks)
Harry: Look, his father is a Death Eater, it makes sense. Besides (he says a name I can’t understant even in Spanish!) saw it with his own eyes!

That’s all!

I hadn’t given dubbing a thought before now but it seems bizarre to think of Professor McGonagall, for instance, speaking Spanish.

Oh cool!! Wow, if I were dubbing, I’d get so confused trying to talk over Harry like that. But still, pretty cool to get to see how it works… Not to mention us getting to see that little clip on the train. Nice!

Yeah, only about 43 more days!! :D

Vampirella—I speak Spanish, but you don’t need to—you can hear most of the English under the guy’s voice. Harry is basically voicing his suspicions about Draco, while Hermione and Ron are doubtful. Harry mentions Draco’s stop at Borgin and Burkes, and Ron says, “It’s a creepy shop, he’s a creepy bloke,” and that’s about it.

Loved to see how the dubbing process works!

Yays for being bilingual! I understood everything except for what I couldn’t hear…I think we’ve seen the entire movie now. 0_o.

Why do people keep saying that?
It is not true in the slightest, it’s not funny.
You will see the entire movie on July 15th.
This exaggeration is getting really annoying when people keep saying it as if they’re the first to have said it.

Hermione: Calm down, Harry, there’s no way Draco is a Death Eater.

Harry: #### YOU! I won’t do what you tell me!
