This weekend, ABC family aired the first four Harry Potter films (Goblet of Fire with ten extra minutes of footage!) along with brand new featurettes from Half Blood Prince.
Now in retrospect the book pretty much goes continuously back and forth between the pensive and teen hormones, which left many to wonder how the movie would turn out. Producer David Heyman says not to worry,
"It's different than the other films," says Heyman. "It's not the non-stop action that some of the others are, although there is some action. It's more of an emotional film. We follow multiple stories: Harry's relationship with Ginny Weasley, Ron's relationship with Lavender Brown. … There also is Hermione's discomfort with Ron's relationship with Lavender. There's Draco Malfoy's story. And then there's Harry's relationship with (Hogwarts headmaster and professor) Dumbledore. We're following these multiple stories that enrich the canvas."
The five featurettes aired cover Tom Riddle, Slughorn, and our first look at both Lavender Brown & Ginny when Harry falls for her. Sigh. She still looks too young for the chosen one, but I'll go with it.
