Yet Another Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Trailer

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Harry Potter begins his sixth year at Hogwarts. A new teacher arrives at Hogwarts, Horace Slughorn, who has quite a few secrets of his own, and at first glance actually appears evil.

Harry gets a Potions book which used to be belong to a mysterious "Half-Blood Prince". Harry finds that the Half-Blood Prince's ancient scribbles are written along the margins of almost every page, giving him advice on how to improve greatly on his Potions work, and also teaching him a few helpful (and dangerous) spells.

Harry is starting private lessons with Dumbledore, during which Harry learns the dark secrets of Voldemort's (AKA Tom Riddle) past, hoping that they could use these secrets to find a way to defeat him.

Draco Malfoy is acting weird and suspicious, sneaking around the school, apparently doing Voldemort's bidding. Harry follows Draco around, in an effort to discover his dark secrets.

Ron has found a new girlfriend, Lavender Brown, a perky (if not obnoxious) Gryffindor student, and Hermione is envious. Ron and Hermione's friendship takes a toll throughout the school year and Harry, as usual, is stuck in the middle. Harry, meanwhile, is facing a romantic dilemma of his own: he realizes he is falling for his best friend's sister, Ginny Weasley, who is unfortunately dating Harry's classmate, Dean Thomas.

The darkness of Voldemort's impending rise to power is always apparent. The ending is dramatic and tragic, leaving many questions until the last chapter of the Harry Potter series.
