Harry Potter Costumes Make Your Halloween Magical

J.K. Rowling took the world by storm with the Harry Potter series. This Halloween, you can enjoy the mystical world of Hogwarts and Quidditch with a Harry Potter Halloween costume. There are costumes for both children and adults, so there is sure to be something you love.

We have all been there, getting completely caught up in a world of enchantment with Harry and Hermione. We have spent countless hours reading every Harry Potter book that J.K Rowling sets before our eyes, reading on and on because we are just so captivated with how her story comes to life. Her powerful tale of young boy who dearly misses his parents has touched the lives of so many people in this world. With a story loved by so many, it is no wonder that Potter has become one of the latest crazes out there today.

Adult Harry Potter Robe has gryffindor emblem & clasp.

Obviously, if you decide to see what it’s like to live in Harry’s shoes for an evening, you’ll need those perfectly round framed glasses (check your local drugstore for the proper style reading glasses, and just snap the lenses out, or pick up a pair at any costume shop) and that famous lightning bolt shaped scar (a bit of make-up will work, or you can really make it stand out by purchasing a theatrical make-up kit, which should also be available at your local drugstore).


Naturally, you would want to be Harry. After all, being the Chosen One comes with a lot of perks. But there are several Harry Potter costume ideas to choose from. First is the long, black Gryffindor robe that you can buy in adult and children’s sizes. The Gryffindor robe is the most basic thing you will need. In fact, you are sure to recreate any character from the Gryffindor house with the robe at hand. You just have to dye your hair red if you want to be one of the Weasleys or rumple your hair to make it big if you want to be Hermione.

Hooded robe with attached shirtfront and mask. Just like the Harry Potter movies.

Considering the popularity, it is most likely that you would find Ron and Hermoine, or even a Dumbldore and Voldermort too somewhere in the Halloween party. You can initiate your mini club of Harry Potter buffs, and play your characters throughout. Do refresh your knowledge from the book, so that no matter what, you remain the undisputed Harry fan.

Of course, you can also portray Harry in his crimson Quidditch robes and a number of necessary accessories to complete the look. The officially-licensed Quidditch costume looks exactly like Harry’s robe in the movie, long and flowing with an attached hood and yellow stripes on the sleeves. The Gryffindor house crest is emblazoned on the left chest. If you really want to be the ultra-talented Gryffindor Quidditch team captain, make sure you also get a broom and a Quidditch helmet for your child.

Do not forget to polish your school shoes. While Harry will wear grey trousers, Ginny will wear a grey skirt. Having a wand along just completes the look of your Halloween costumes design.

Real Witches & Wizards Turning Out for Order of the Phoenix

Cotati, CA (PRWEB) July 10, 2007

Hundreds of students and teachers from the online Grey School of Wizardry will be attending the latest in their favorite series of films in full regalia. So look for those robes, cloaks, and pointy hats, and ask them: “Are you a real Witch or Wizard?” They just might be.

The fourth Harry Potter movie takes us back to J.K. Rowling’s fictional “Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry,” made famous as the setting for seven novels and four previous movies. These books and films have become the most popular literary phenomenon of all time. Millions of readers and viewers would love to board the “Hogwarts Express” and travel to a remote academy that teaches real magick, Witchcraft, and Wizardry.

Well, as so often happens, fiction has become reality. A major online school has been established to meet these needs.

The Grey School of Wizardry was inspired by Headmaster Oberon Zell-Ravenheart’s Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard (New Page, 2004). Incorporated in California as a nonprofit educational institution, the Grey School offers an extensive program of studies in all areas of Wizardry and magick, at an Apprenticeship grade in seven “year-levels.” Graduates are certified as “Journeyman Wizards.”

Initially designed for students of ages 11-18, the Grey School has proven to appeal greatly to adults as well, who comprise 75% of the 700+ students currently enrolled. Some students are in their 70s. We are particularly pleased that some of our students are entire families of parents and children studying together.

In fact, while there are now several on-line schools teaching Witchcraft as a religion, there are no others with a specialized curriculum in genuine Wizardry, which is a secular study, like Science and Philosophy. The Grey School of Wizardry currently offers over 200 classes, with lessons, assignments, practical exercises, and exams taught by a highly-qualified Faculty, presently numbering 35.

And during July through August, the Grey School is sponsoring a “Why I Want To Be A Wizard” essay contest for youths 11-17. Seven winners (one of each age) will receive full first-year scholarships, personally autographed copies of Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard, and beautiful wands from Willowroot Real Magic Wands. Full information is on the School’s website at http://www.GreySchool.com.

“To those who study the occult, the name of Oberon Zell-Ravenheart is internationally known and respected. Perhaps, as some have written, Oberon is the real Albus Dumbledore to aspiring Harry Potters!” –Lee Prosser, Fate Magazine 3/19/2004


Pottermore Insider: You ask, we answer

Potter fan sites from around the globe helped us with the Pottermore name reveal, and now those same fan sites have been kind enough to tell us what their readers most want to know about the Pottermore experience.

While we can’t give everything away (even though we know you’d like us to!), we’d really love to answer some of your questions …

Will Pottermore be available in multiple languages?
Yes. Initially, Pottermore will be available in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. We are aiming to introduce more languages in the future – including Japanese and Korean later this year. You’ll be able to keep track of language availability here on the Insider.

Will Pottermore be free?
Yes, access to Pottermore will be completely free; you won’t have to pay anything to use the site. The Pottermore Shop will have items in it that you’ll be able to buy, but choosing to purchase something – or not – won’t affect your progress through the story as the Shop sits outside of the online reading experience.

Can you please explain what you mean by ‘online reading experience’? How much will I, as a Pottermore user, be able to affect the story? After all, hasn’t Harry’s story already been told?
The best way to think of Pottermore is as an interactive, illustrated companion to the books. J.K. Rowling wanted to create a site where her stories could live on and where readers could explore them in a new way. In addition to discovering new material from J.K. Rowling about Harry’s world, you’ll be able to interact with key story Moments (the Sorting Hat sequence, for example) and upload your own comments, thoughts and artwork for all the characters, objects and places that you come across.

So Pottermore isn’t a massively multiplayer online role-playing game like World of Warcraft, or a social network game like Farmville?
No. While there will be some simple games you can play (you’ll be able to brew potions, for example), Pottermore is very much about the books: being able to experience Harry’s story in a new way and discover all the additional information that J.K. Rowling has written.

Isn’t there a House Cup that we compete for by earning points?
Yes, there is. As you progress through the story you’ll also be able to earn house points – and once you get to the end of the first book you can carry on earning points to help your house win the House Cup.

Would you say Pottermore is a social network for fans of Harry Potter?
Not really. Pottermore isn’t trying to compete with sites like Facebook or the Harry Potter forums and fan sites that are already out there. Once you’ve signed up to Pottermore you’ll be able to find and invite your Facebook friends (if you’re over thirteen) and leave comments in your house common room and the Great Hall, but Pottermore isn’t a social networking site where you can share personal information or chat in forums.

I saw the Sony logo at the top of Pottermore.com. What’s Sony’s involvement with the site?
Sony is the primary partner of Pottermore. They have been consulted and involved in the development of the site experience and will offer a range of products and services to Pottermore users.

Is Pottermore the Harry Potter encyclopedia?
J.K. Rowling has written exclusive new material especially for Pottermore giving unique insights, back stories and additional information about the characters, places and objects in the Harry Potter series. For now, Pottermore is the only place you’ll be able to find new information from J.K. Rowling about Harry’s world, and we’ll be releasing this material as each of the seven books appears on the site.

Once I’ve been sorted, will I be able to change houses?
J.K. Rowling has created a series of questions for the Sorting Hat, and how you answer these questions will determine which of the four houses you’ll be in. Once you’ve been sorted, you won’t be able to change; the Sorting Hat’s decision is final!

What formats will the ebooks be available in? Will I be able to read them on my iPad/Sony eReader/Kindle…?
The Pottermore Shop is due to open in October. Our aim is to offer the ebooks in an as many formats as possible. We’ll provide more information closer to the time.

I’ve submitted my email to the Pottermore website – does this mean I’m registered with Pottermore.com?
Not yet. If you’ve submitted your email address to the site, we’ll use it to let you know when site registration is open to everyone. In other words, once you’ve received an email from us, you’ll be able to visit Pottermore.com and complete the registration process.

Remember, to get into Hogwarts you must have magical ability…

What’s going to happen on 31 July?
We don’t want to ruin the surprise but something will be happening on Pottermore.com on 31 July. Come back to the site, or keep an eye on the Pottermore Insider (http://insider.pottermore.com) and our Pottermore Twitter feed for details.

Is the Pottermore Owl Twitter account official?
No, it’s not – but we kind of wish we’d thought of it!

Thanks to all the sites that helped us collect the questions for this post: Blog Hogwarts, Clube do Slugue, Harry Potter Xperts, HPANA, The Leaky Cauldron, Mugglenet, Portus, SnitchSeeker, and L’Univers De Harry Potter.

What is the Harry Potter craze all about?

J.K. Rowling wrote a series of books featuring a young wizard named Harry Potter. The seven book series chronicles one year in Harry’s life as he attends Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An orphan who is treated extremely badly by the relative that took him in becomes the most important and famous wizard.

The book series begins with Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone or Sorcerer’s Stone in some countries. The book starts around Harry’s eleventh birthday. This is when Harry finds out that he is a wizard and starts his first year at the Hogwarts School. The wizard world is parallel to the real word and comprises of hidden streets, ancient pubs, distant country manors, and secluded castles. Everything is kept hidden from non-wizards called muggles. Harry meets two new friends that stay close to him throughout the series. Their names are Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.

The three get into a lot of adventures together throughout the series. The book ends with Harry’s second encounter with Lord Voldemort with a battle over the Philosopher’s Stone.

Harry’s second year at Hogwarts is chronicled in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Harry, Hermione, and Ron strive to solve a fifty year old mystery tied to an evil event in the schools past. Ron’s younger sister, Ginny, finds Voldemort’s notebook and accidently opens the Chamber of Secrets, releasing a dangerous monster as well. Ample Hogwarts history is revealed in the second book including Lord Voldemort detest for wizards that have muggle parents, like Hermione. Harry battles to save Ginny’s life.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the third novel, is about Harry’s struggle against an escaped murderer Sirius Black. Harry has to face dark creatures that have the power to take a human soul, called dementors. He works with Professor Lupin, a defense against the dark arts teacher, to learn more and more about the powers he possesses.

The fourth book, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is about the tri wizard tournament. This is a dangerous contest where the best wizards compete from different schools. The stakes are so high that lives are at stake. Lord Voldemort uses the competition to get Harry all by himself.

The series continues, with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Lord Voldemort has gained a lot of strength and starts to gain followers again. In response, Dumbledore re-activates a secret society called the Order of the Phoenix to protect Voldemort’s targets. Harry struggles to convince the Ministry of Magic that Voldemort has returned. A new head minister is assigned to Hogwarts and Harry and his friends battle Voldemort’s followers, the Death Eaters.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is about Harry’s sixth year at Hogwarts. Harry comes across a special book that used to belong to the half-blood prince. The book has special notes in the margin that gives Harry an advantage over the other students. Harry finds a love interest in Ginny. The book ends in a great tragedy that will change the lives of everyone forever.

The last book begins with Voldemort reaching his full power and taking over the Ministry of Magic. Harry, Hermione, and Ron drop out of Hogwarts so that they can find the remaining horcruxes, which are inanimate objects that trap pieces of your soul in them. If they are still intact, the person cannot be destroyed. They isolate themselves from their friends and family for protection. The book ends in the great Battle of Hogwarts.

Emma Watson

Early life

Emma Watson was born in Paris, the daughter of British lawyers Jacqueline Luesby and Chris Watson. Watson has one French grandmother, and lived in Paris until the age of five. Later, following her parents’ divorce, she moved with her mother and younger brother, Alex, to Oxfordshire. From the age of six, Watson wanted to become an actress, and for a number of years she trained at the Oxford branch of Stagecoach Theatre Arts, a part-time theatre school where she studied singing, dancing and acting. By the age of ten, she had performed in various Stagecoach productions and school plays, including Arthur: The Young Years and The Happy Prince, but she had never acted professionally before the Harry Potter series. “I had no idea of the scale of the film series,” she stated in a 2007 interview with Parade; “if I had I would have been completely overwhelmed.”


Harry Potter

In 1999, casting began for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (released as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in the United States), the film adaptation of British author J. K. Rowling’s bestselling novel. Of importance to the casting directors were the lead role of Harry Potter and the supporting roles of Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, Harry’s best friends. Casting agents found Watson through her Oxford theatre teacher, and producers were impressed by her confidence. After eight auditions, producer David Heyman told Watson and fellow applicants Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint that they had been cast for the roles of Hermione, Harry and Ron, respectively. Rowling supported Watson from her first screen test.

The release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in 2001 was Watson’s debut screen performance. The film broke records for opening-day sales and opening-weekend takings and was the highest-grossing film of 2001. Critics praised the performances of the three leads, often singling out Watson for particular acclaim; The Daily Telegraph called her performance “admirable”, and IGN said she “stole the show”. Watson was nominated for five awards for her performance in Philosopher’s Stone, winning the Young Artist Award for Leading Young Actress.

A year later, Watson again starred as Hermione in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the second installment of the series. Although the film received mixed reviews, reviewers were positive about the lead actors’ performances. The Los Angeles Times said Watson and her peers had matured between films, while The Times criticised director Chris Columbus for “under-employing” Watson’s hugely popular character. Watson received an Otto Award from the German magazine Bravo for her performance.

In 2004, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was released. Watson was appreciative of the more assertive role Hermione played, calling her character “charismatic” and “a fantastic role to play”. Although critics panned Radcliffe’s performance, labelling him “wooden”, they praised Watson; The New York Times lauded her performance, saying “Luckily Mr. Radcliffe’s blandness is offset by Ms. Watson’s spiky impatience. Harry may show off his expanding wizardly skills … but Hermione … earns the loudest applause with a decidedly unmagical punch to Draco Malfoy’s deserving nose.” Although Prisoner of Azkaban remains the lowest-grossing Harry Potter film as of April 2009, Watson’s personal performance won her two Otto Awards and the Child Performance of the Year award from Total Film.

With Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), both Watson and the Harry Potter film series reached new milestones. The film set records for a Harry Potter opening weekend, a non-May opening weekend in the US, and an opening weekend in the UK. Critics praised the increasing maturity of Watson and her teenage co-stars; the New York Times called her performance “touchingly earnest”. For Watson, much of the humour of the film sprang from the tension among the three lead characters as they matured. She said, “I loved all the arguing. … I think it’s much more realistic that they would argue and that there would be problems.” Nominated for three awards for Goblet of Fire, Watson won a bronze Otto Award. Later that year, Watson became the youngest person to appear on the cover of Teen Vogue, an appearance she reprised in August 2009. In 2006, Watson played Hermione in The Queen’s Handbag, a special mini-episode of Harry Potter in celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s 80th birthday.

Watson signing autographs for fans outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, 2007

The fifth film in the Harry Potter franchise, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, was released in 2007. A huge financial success, the film set a record worldwide opening-weekend gross of 2.7 million. Watson won the inaugural National Movie Award for Best Female Performance. As the fame of the actress and the series continued, Watson and fellow Harry Potter co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint left imprints of their hands, feet and wands in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood on 9 July 2007.

Despite the success of Order of the Phoenix, the future of the Harry Potter franchise became surrounded in doubt, as all three lead actors were hesitant to sign on to continue their roles for the final two episodes. Radcliffe eventually signed for the final films on 2 March 2007, but Watson was considerably more hesitant. She explained that the decision was significant, as the films represented a further four-year commitment to the role, but eventually conceded that she “could never let [the role of] Hermione go”, signing for the role on 23 March 2007. In return for committing to the final films, Watson’s pay was doubled to 2 million per film; she concluded that “in the end, the pluses outweighed the minuses”. Principal photography for the sixth film began in late 2007, with Watson’s part being filmed from 18 December to 17 May 2008.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince premiered on 15 July 2009, having been controversially delayed from November 2008. With the lead actors now in their late teens, critics were increasingly willing to review them on the same level as the rest of the film’s all-star cast, which the Los Angeles Times described as “a comprehensive guide to contemporary UK acting”. The Washington Post felt Watson to have given “[her] most charming performance to date”, while The Daily Telegraph described the lead actors as “newly-liberated and energized, eager to give all they have to what left of the series”.

Watson’s filming for the final installment of the Harry Potter film series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, began on 18 February 2009. The film, divided into two parts filmed back to back for financial and scripting reasons, is scheduled for release in November 2010 and July 2011.

Other acting work

Watson’s first non-Potter role was the 2007 BBC film Ballet Shoes, an adaptation of the novel of the same title by Noel Streatfeild. The film’s director Sandra Goldbacher commented that Watson was “perfect” for the starring role of aspiring actress Pauline Fossil: “She has a piercing, delicate aura that makes you want to gaze and gaze at her.” Ballet Shoes was broadcast in the UK on Boxing Day 2007 to an audience of 5.7 million viewers, despite generally poor reviews.

Watson also lent her voice to the role of Princess Pea in the animated film The Tale of Despereaux, a children’s comedy starring Matthew Broderick. The Tale of Despereaux was released in December 2008 and grossed million worldwide.

In April 2008, Watson was widely rumoured to have been cast as “Betsy” Bonaparte in an upcoming film titled Napoleon and Betsy, but her official website denied that any commitment had been made and the film failed to materialize. Watson has chosen to focus on her education rather than pursuing other film or television roles.

Fashion and modelling

As she has grown older, Watson has become something of a fashion devotee, saying that she sees fashion as very similar to art, which she studied in school. In September 2008, she told a blogger, “I’ve been focusing on art a lot, and fashion’s a great extension of that.”

In 2008, the British press reported that Watson was to replace Keira Knightley as the face of the fashion house Chanel, but this was flatly denied by both parties. In June 2009, following several months of rumours, Watson confirmed that she would be partnering Burberry as the face of their new campaign; she received an estimated six-figure fee for modelling Burberry’s Autumn/Winter 2009 collection. She later appeared in Burberry’s 2010 Spring/Summer campaign alongside her brother Alex, musicians George Craig and Matt Gilmour, and Max Hurd.

In September 2009, Watson announced her involvement with People Tree, a Fair Trade fashion brand. Watson says she has been working closely with People Tree to create a spring line of clothing, due to be released at the end of February 2010. The line will feature styles inspired by southern France and the City of London. Later, The Times released a short article on Watson’s progress with the collection. The range was highly publicized, appearing in subsequent tabloids such as You magazine, Heat Magazine, Teen Vogue, Cosmopolitan, and People. Watson admitted that her competition was minimal. She also stated, “I think young people like me are becoming increasingly aware of the humanitarian issues surrounding fast fashion and want to make good choices but there aren’t many options out there.”

Personal life

Watson’s extended family has grown as her divorced parents each have new partners. Her father has a son, Toby, and identical twin girls, Nina and Lucy. Her mother’s partner has two sons (Watson’s stepbrothers), who “regularly stay with her”. Watson’s full brother, Alexander, has appeared as an extra in two Harry Potter films, and her half-sisters were cast as the young Pauline Fossil in the BBC’s Ballet Shoes adaptation.

After moving to Oxford with her mother and brother, Watson attended The Dragon School, an independent preparatory school, until June 2003 and then moved to Headington School, an independent school for girls, also in Oxford. While on film sets, Watson and her peers were tutored for up to five hours a day; despite the focus on filming she maintained high academic standards. In June 2006, Watson took GCSE examinations in 10 subjects, achieving eight A* and two A grades; she was a target of friendly ridicule on the Harry Potter set because of her straight-A exam results. She received A grades in her 2008 A level examinations in English Literature, Geography and Art, and in her 2007 AS (advanced subsidiary) level in History of Art.

After leaving school, Watson took a gap year to film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows beginning in February 2009, but said she “definitely want[ed] to go to university”. Despite numerous contradictory news stories, some from highly-reputable sources, claiming that she would “definitely” attend Trinity College, Cambridge, Columbia University, Brown University or Yale University, Watson was reluctant to commit publicly to any one institution, saying that she would announce her decision first on her official website. In interviews with Jonathan Ross and David Letterman in July 2009, she confirmed that she was planning to study liberal arts in the United States, saying that having missed so much school as a child for filming the “broad curriculum” of American higher education appealed to her more than British universities, “where you have to just choose one thing to study for three years”. In July 2009, after a second storm of rumour, The Providence Journal reported that Watson had “grudgingly admitted” that she had chosen Brown University, located in Providence, Rhode Island. Watson defended her attempts to avoid announcing her choice of university accidentally slipped by Daniel Radcliffe and producer David Heyman, during interviews publicising the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and finally confirmed in September 2009 after the university’s academic year had started saying that she “want[ed] to be normal. … I want to do it properly, like everyone else. As long as I don walk in and see … Harry Potter posters everywhere, Il be fine.”

Watson’s work in the Harry Potter series has earned her more than 10 million, and she has acknowledged she will never have to work for money  in March 2009 she was ranked 6th on the Forbes list of “Most Valuable Young Stars” and in February 2010 was named as Hollywood’s highest paid female star, having earned an estimated 19 million in 2009. However, she has declined to leave school to become a full-time actress, saying “People can understand why I don want to … but school life keeps me in touch with my friends. It keeps me in touch with reality.” She has been positive about working as a child actress, saying her parents and colleagues helped make her experience a positive one. Watson enjoys a close friendship with her fellow Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, describing them as a “unique support system” for the stresses of film work, and saying that, after working with them for the ten years of the film series, “they really are like my siblings”.


Watson lists her interests as dancing, singing, field hockey, tennis, art and fly fishing, and she donates to WTT (Wild Trout Trust). She describes herself as “a bit of a feminist”, and admires fellow actors Johnny Depp and Julia Roberts.

The Plot Of Harry Potter And The Half Blood Prince

Article by Allan Michael Taylor

The success of any movie is totally dependent on the plot or scheme of that movie. It is not necessary that only reality based movies are successful, but most of the times unrealistic or made-up movies seem to be grasping the audience’s attention much more than practical movies.

Nevertheless, it would only come about if the story and plot would be perfectly written, and managed. It is the case with the imminent new movie of the world’s most popular imaginary series of Harry Potter saga called Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, which has now become the most likely and highly anticipated movie.

It would be in the theatres and cinemas all around the world in this month of July. J.K Rowling has brought remarkable climaxes and twists in this sixth part of the series. The story has been written flawlessly and perfectly. The account commences with the meeting of Minister of Magic with the Minister of Muggles (humans) telling and warning him about the powerful position and spiteful position of Lord Voldemort.

The story takes a suspense-filled culmination when Severus Snape, whom Dumbledore trusts blindly, meets Narcissa and Bellatrix (mother and aunt of Draco Malfoy) and guarantees them that he will assist Draco in whatever task he is up to, on the orders of Voldemort. Dumbledore takes Harry from his Muggle aunt and uncle’s house to have a meeting with old Professor Slughorn, who after meeting Harry consents to instruct in Hogwarts.

At the very start of Harry’s sixth year at Hogwarts, he gets the first sheer shock, when Dumbledore proclaims that professor Severus Snape is going to teach Defence Against the Dark Arts. This offends Harry a lot, as he has always detested Snape. Professor Slughorn becomes the lecturer of potions and gives Harry an old copy of Potion creation.

Harry uses the correct spells and methods written on it and becomes the most shining student of the class. The book has been the possession of Half Blood Prince but Harry does not have the slightest idea about the Half Blood Prince. Sixth year has also brought lovely changes in Harry’s life such as his romance with Ginny Weasley and the captaincy of Gryffindor Quidditch team.

Harry also has distrust on Malfoy that he is doing something clandestinely, but could not guess the task. Harry has his underground meetings with Dumbledore in which he shows Harry the memories of different people relating to Voldemort. Then Harry receives another big shock when he gets to know that Voldemort has split his soul into seven parts called Horcruxes and he has to destroy them in order to finish Voldemort. On the mission of destroying a Horcrux in a cave, Dumbledore is badly hurt and on returning Hogwarts, they get to know that Death Eaters have come in the school.

Malfoy’s duty was to give them an entry in Hogwarts. Then the most unforeseen thing of the whole series happen and Snape in front of Harry and Death Eaters kills Dumbledore and sneaks away telling Harry that he is the Half Blood Prince. Harry is now left alone on the precarious mission of finding Horcruxes and destroying Voldemort. So, watch this action packed suspense filled, mysterious and full of thrill movie of the Harry Potter saga.

The release date for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is 15th July 2009.

'Harry Potter' by the Numbers: Audience Grew Older, Series Got

The Harry Potter franchise aged considerably over its 10-year, eight-film lifespan.

The audience for the two “Deathly Hallows” films — the last one opening over the weekend — were 56 and 55 percent over the age of 25, respectively.

That’s quite a bit older than when the franchise debuted in 2002. At that time, 60 percent of the audience for “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” was under the age of 15, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com.

“Those 10-year-olds going to the first movie, holding the hands of their parents, ended up driving to the last midnight shows,” noted Warner distribution chief Dan Fellman. “Along the way, we increased our fanbase.” 

Indeed, defying the usual physics of aging, the series grew stronger both creatively and at the box office.

If source-book author J.K. Rowling sticks to her pledge to produce no more Potter novels, the Warner’s film series ended on a high note this weekend, generating the biggest domestic, foreign and global opening of any film ever. 

According to final Monday numbers, finale “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2” grossed $481.5 million globally this weekend, an all-time record.

Also, according to official numbers, the film now owns both the domestic premiere record ($169.3 million) and the foreign mark ($312.3 million).

The series owns four of the top 10 best global openings.

In fact, from biggest non-summer opening (set by “Deathly Hallows, Part 1” back in November with $125 million) to best IMAX start (“Deathly Hallows, Part 2” did $15.5 million at 274 big-screen locations, the Potter franchise now owns most of the key movie-premiere benchmarks.

The series seemed to get better over time, not only commercially, but creatively, as well.

In terms of narrative quality, “Deathly Hallows, Part 2’s” 97 percent Rotten Tomatoes was a series best, easily outstripping the 80 percent garnered by first installment “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” back in November 2001.

Of course, it’s the box office numbers that remain the most staggering, with the series — bolstered by the weekend gross — approaching $6.9 billion over its 10-year theatrical lifespan.

This figure isn’t accounting for the massive book sales, as well as the robust DVD and film aftermarket.

With revenue like this, and the series no where near close to jumping the shark, how can Rowling stop at eight seven books?

Certainly, there’s immense pressure for her to write more.

“That’s up to her — whatever she decides to do is her call,” Fellman said Sunday. “Personally, I would love to see it.”

Harry Potter Casts Positive Spell, According to Study

West Hartford, CT (PRWEB) July 8, 2005

J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter fantasy series casts a positive spell on children, suggests a study completed by three Saint Joseph College professors.

The four-year study “Harry Potter: Are Children and Adults Reading the Same Books?” was completed by Mary Whitney, Ph.D., Elizabeth Vozzola, Ph.D. and Joan Hofmann, Ph.D., of Saint Joseph College.

The researchers hope to share their findings about the positive messages found in Rowling’s novels with educators, librarians and parents worldwide. The work also represents a resource for parents and teachers to use when discussing moral stories with children.

Last November, Professors Whitney and Vozzola presented their research at the Association for Moral Education’s International Conference in Dana Point, CA. The study contests claims made by groups across the United States that the Harry Potter novels confuse children about magic and lead them to the occult.

“Many teachers and librarians across the nation are under siege for supporting the Harry Potter series,” said Dr. Vozzola. “Our research program found absolutely no evidence that reading Harry Potter leads children to the occult – the moral messages these books send are overwhelmingly positive.”

“We recently edited our conference paper for publication in the hopes that we can share our findings with organizations of librarians and teachers across the United States,” continues Dr. Vozzola. “Our study will hopefully initiate a nationwide dialogue between concerned parents and their children about how the Harry Potter novels teach lessons of courage and friendship – not black magic.”

This month (June 2005), the study was accepted for publication in the Journal of Research in Character Education.

Saint Joseph College (http://www.sjc.edu) in West Hartford is Connecticut’s only four-year women’s college. Consistently cited on the national level for the quality of its academic programs, the College offers The Women’s College, and for men and women, The Prime Time Program for the way women and men live and learn and The Graduate School. The Gengras Center serves children with special needs from more than 40 towns. The renowned School for Young Children is one of the oldest early childhood centers in the state and Connecticut’s model laboratory school.
