“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”: why ban J.K. Rowling this entire scene
“Harry Potter” author JK Rowling had a leading role with the adaptations to their magic school. In 6.Teil “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” prevented them from doing even a whole scene. This would have changed the backdrop of a figure …
In “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” play the hormones of the students completely crazy. The focus of the film are not only the romantic developments between Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and Ginny (Bonnie Wright), but also the complicated relationship of Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson).
