Account of Footage Shown at HP Countdown Event Online Inaccurate (Updated)

DH Film

As readers will recall, last week we received word regarding a Harry Potter film countdown event in Japan which would show air an "exclusive preview" of the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" films.  That event took place today, which prompted this account to come online via a Harry Potter forum detailing the footage shown.

Update: After word has come online regarding the event which took place in Japan, the information posted on the above forum turns out to be inaccurate.  Our friends at SnitchSeeker report that the Japanese audience was treated to their fist look at the previously aired clips from ABC Family's Harry Potter weekend, which can be viewed here.   We apologize for the confusion!

Many thanks to Adam for owling!

OMG words cannot describe how excited i am that this movie is so true to the book
i was terrified after watching the David Yates disaster that was HBP that he would do the same to DH but maybe he won’t screw it up this time…maybe.
i hope so badly that the footage will become available to us before the movie comes out :) that would make me so happy (:

i’m not sure of them having the burrow. I pictured the weasleys having the wedding in a tent while they’re rebuilding their house. it sort of takes away from how emotional the burrow burning was when they just build it again in less then a year. I know peeple were mad about the burrow burning in the last one, but i thought it was a good choice. In film it is better for a character to experience something rather than read about it. And really, the death eaters wouldn’t presume harry is with the weasley’s during christmas? Theres no mention in the books of the Weasley’s house having protective spells. It is more realistic for deatheaters to attempt to do something. I know it could have meant the wedding wuld be somewhere else but i dont think that wuld be a big deal.
