Balloons Away in the UK for Launch of Half-Blood Prince DVD, New Deathly Hallows Set Visit ContestHBP Film
Well it isn't quite a ship to launch a thousand faces, but rather it's a launch of a thousand balloons to herald the release of pre-orders for the UK Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince DVD. Yes, really. According to Indie London, this Thursday, September 24, 2009 WB will launch 1,000 balloons which will "have a card attached featuring a unique code that will entitle the holder to register online for a chance to win a trip to the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, then "step on to a set for a unique and exciting filming experience, where
they will be filmed in the role of one of the magical framed “moving”
portrait characters that have adorned the walls of Hogwarts in all of
the Harry Potter films. The launch takes place at 1pm at the Millennium Bridge (beside City of
London School), and will be done by Harry Potter stars Evanna Lynch (aka Luna Lovegood) and Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom)."
Open to UK residents aged 18 and over, if you are lucky enough to catch one of these balloons you have to register online at this link (currently not yet working) between October 1, 2009 and December 4, 2009 for entry into the grand prize draw. Good Luck!
