What is that I feel? Is it… excitement for the new Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince? Why, it is! I thought that maybe since the books were over my general interest in the films would wane – after all, I know everything that’s going to happen from here on in. The mysteries of the books (and there were small clues we could find in the movies) are solved. But looking at this new trailer – a really expertly put together piece of marketing – I find that I still have that excitement. I still love this world and these characters, and it’s been so long since I read the sixth book that it all feels fresh to me!
Here’s the latest trailer. Commence to get psyched, wizard people.
