Oh, man!!! that was awesome! I hadn’t checked out the stills, because I didn’t want to be disappointed since the trailer wasn’t online. Now it is, and I’m so excited. The new scenes were very good. I liked the bit with Dumbledore: “Most people throw up the first time.” That deadpan delivery was very funny. Maybe Kloves has given Dumbledore some more lighthearted moments that even Gambon can’t screw up. :)

I don’t know if its the Japanese commentary, or what, but it looks like a pretty exciting movie to me.

How exciting! :D I think this is the point where I stop looking at spoilers. It’s going to be tough, but I don’t want to ruin this one like I did with the fourth film.

A little off topic, but I like how they write the date backwards.. hehe.

In Ron’s words, “Bloody brilliant!” I can’t wait. Hermione was amazing, Ron was amazing, Ginny was amazing, obviously, Harry was amazing, and Dumbledore was hilarious. One of the few lines I’ve liked that they just added in. Very excited. Tom Felton was very convincing in front of the mirror. Erked (sp?) by his little snippet. I didn’t think Snape knew Harry was on the floor though. Creepy shushing image. All in all GREAT trailer! Can’t wait for July 17!!

That was simply amazing and way better that what I had expected, I thought it would just be the same as the others with about one new shot edited in. Only yesterday on Leaky I wondered when we’d get to see this. WOW have to say Snape’s Line about the chosen- Brilliant! So much to talk about this, PotterCast get on this!
All I can say is God Bless Sue for twittering this to my attention! I barely even use Twitter!
