HP7 Part One score to be released November 16th!

It has been unofficially announced that the score
for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One
will be released on November 16th,
three days prior to the film's release.

For those who may not be aware what a score is,
it is the background music to scenes in the film.

A lot of people confuse a film's score for its soundtrack.

A soundtrack is a collection of songs used in the film, and a score is just background music.

The score for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One can be found and/or ordered
for about $14 on through this link:

Please note that the price mentioned above does not include expense for shipping and taxes.

LEGO Harry Potter 2010 building set TV ad now on our site!

After a week or so of being exclusive to the LEGO website, copies of the ad were sneaked onto, where we got a copy and embedded it beneath this post.

Although the 30 second LEGO ads have never been spectacular,
it does go into some more detail concerning two of the sets,
Hogwarts Castle, and another set, the Hogwarts Express train.

No other sets are shown in the ad, and half of it is pure
CGI animation, (Computer Generated Imagery).
I won't say whether or not this ad was good or bad,
but allow fans to judge for themselves after watching this video.

New HP7 official HD photos released!

About a week ago,
Warner Bros updated
their official Harry Potter 7
twitter page with a stream of
new photos for fans to
enjoy and discuss.

Although seven days have now passed, not much attention was paid to the page, so we decided to post about it.

Here is the first of the two newest pics on the left,
showing Harry holding a piece of broken glass.

And second, (below), is a snapshot of the trio and who appears to be the new
Minister of Magic, who in office acts as governor over the wizarding population.

He appears to be holding something
out for Harry to take.

Readers of the books should have a good guess as to what it might be.

We will continue our coverage of the official Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows twitter page in future posts.

Harry Potter 7 TV spot now on site in full HD quality!

After two days of low-res quality, a High Definition version of the newly released
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows TV ad, which debuted on ABC Family on
Thursday night, just two days ago, which we covered in a previous post.

This new High Definition version of the 30 second ad is available for our viewers here,
and can also be found on our "Harry Potter film 7" page.

New official Harry Potter 7 TV spot airs, video now online!

Just today, a new 30 second montage of
Harry Potter 7 footage aired on TV,
and although it did not show a lot of
new clips, it was still interesting.

It is about time Warner Bros started their advertising campaign.
Considering they said they would start an "aggressive marketing campaign", marketing for the final two films has lately been anything but aggressive. Since no official digital copy of the
TV spot, we are currently using a low-res camera-recording-a-TV one
released by fansite, which can be found on our Harry Potter 7 page.

Warner Bros releases new Harry Potter 7 pics!

Just today, Warner Bros, producer of the Harry Potter films, released a new hi-res still taken from the seventh or eighth films, displayed on the left.

At a glance, the background looks similar to the
land surrounding the Weasley's house,
the house where Harry's friend, Ron, lives.

If this guess is correct, then this scene would be included in Part 1of the two films, as Harry doesn't return to the Weasley's house again
after this point.

Second is a production photo (below) showing filmmakers hard at work on a scene at the home of Harry's school rival,
Draco Malfoy, played by Tom Felton,
and his father, Lucious Malfoy, played by
Jason Issacs.

Harry Potter theme park in Universal Orlando to expand?

According to reports from inside Warner Bros,
it is rumored that the newly added
Harry Potter based mini theme park,
"The Wizarding World of Harry Potter",
might just be expanded within the next
year or so.

It is starting to become apparent that one
of Universal's other attractions,
"The Lost World", based off of the
"Jurassic Park" movies, is failing in terms
of revenue.

The rumor is that Universal will be closing "The Lost World", which was
located directly next to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and then
replacing the empty area with additional Harry Potter attractions.

There has been no official confirmation, so for now, only time will tell.
