Harry Potter: Half-Blood Prince Images

I work in modeling and film production and like sharing insights into both industries.

J. K. Rowling's Books

If you are a Harry Potter fan, most likely you have read all J.K. Rowling's books. If you are not a reader, then you watch the Warner Bros. movies. They grabbed your attention, and you couldn't get away. The obsession with the Harry Potter stories is worldwide, whether with the book or just the movie, even both. The story is something that a whole family can experience together, and I highly suggest it. When your family decides to watch Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, snuggle up because it's time to share a much darker and deeper Harry Potter movie than the earlier ones.

Moviegoers' first reaction to Half-Blood Prince is how much those kids have grown up. They look so much older, and the story grows with them and gets darker. The actors surpassed their adolescence, and the characters have mastered their wizard training. If you have read the book, you are aware of the movie's overall plot and outcome.

Sure. The story is darker, and Harry Potter learns more about Voldemort's dark secrets and how to overpower the evil wizard once and for all. One main character in the story will perish, which is a pivotal point in Rowling's series and maybe hard to bear.

Yates Directs Harry Potter Movies

David Yates directs the movie, and he is by far the best of all directors of the franchise, which is evident by his return to finish the last three installments after directing Order of the Phoenix.

Yates's experience as a British television director keeps the story above the special effects. Yates told IMDB, "I like to create an atmosphere where actors feel safe enough to take risks. I certainly don't believe in being a macho bully. I'm not interested in frightening good work out of people. It's bollocks," he continues. "In an ideal world, I'd bounce between big projects and no-budget TV dramas with fantastic scripts. A lot of Hollywood films tend to be bloated, bombastic, loud. At the same time, I do like the infrastructure of making a blockbuster; it's like having a big train set."

Young Tom Riddle

In Half-Blood Prince, we discover detailed information about the young Tom Riddle, the boy. He eventually grows up to be Lord Voldemort, played brilliantly by Hero Fiennes-Tiffin, the nephew of Ralph Fiennes. Ralph Fiennes plays Voldemort, which makes the casting quite a family affair.

Another new cast member to the franchise is Jim Broadbent as Horace Slughorn, the new potions teacher, a plot-driven character in the story of Harry Potter. Broadbent's resume is extensive and probably one of the most favored character actors in the U.K. and the U.S.

Rowling's Final Scene

So, sit down with your family and enjoy the sixth installment of the Harry Potter films. At the end of the movie, Harry reflects with Ron and Hermione on the difference between him and Voldemort. It’s a meaningful line and poignant why we read Rowling’s series and flock to see Harry Potter movies.

"Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery Mobile Game"

Even though we read the books, see the movies, and see the spin-offs like Fantastic Beasts, a Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery Mobile Game offers a chance to play a game with the franchise. The mobile game is just another way to enjoy Harry Potter.

Play the video promoting the new game, and you will see some reactions to the game from real Harry Potter talent like one of the Phelps brothers. The game launched in Orlando at Wizarding World of Harry Potter was exciting and eventful for those you attended the launch.

It is one of the first games where players experience being a character they choose and a Hogwarts student.

Video Game

Future of Harry Potter

With spin-offs from Harry Potter stories, the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the theme parks, and mobile games, you walk into a Barnes & Noble bookstore and see Harry Potter fandom from the original story Fantastic Beasts. Anything is possible with such a fantasy story.

Rowling's work inspires people to dream and be a part of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter or write their fantasy books where families and friends bond sharing a fanciful reality.
