Trailer Watch: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Princess and the Frog teasers

Only having seen the third film, I don’t really have much interest in this, but the trailer does look nicely ominous. I expect the fans will be ecstatic… (See the teaser in high definition at Moviefone.)

The official synopsis reads thusly:

Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort’s defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, the well-connected and unsuspecting bon vivant Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information. Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Harry finds himself more and more drawn to Ginny, but so is Dean Thomas. And Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, only she hadn’t counted on Romilda Vane’s chocolates! And then there’s Hermione, simpering with jealously but determined not to show her feelings. As romance blossoms, one student remains aloof. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.

Blah blah blah blah blah… The sixth Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, flies into theaters on November 21st.

Disney’s long overdue return to traditional animation is just over a year away: a teaser trailer for The Princess and the Frog is up at the film’s official site. The Jazz Age New Orleans-set update of the classic fairy tale (“The Frog Princess” by most accounts) will hop into theaters (ho ho ho, gotta love the puns) on Christmas, 2009. Man, that’s a long time from now.

Oh well, it looks gorgeous. If the animated bits from Enchanted are any indication of what they’ll do with this film, no matter how annoying faux-Cajun they go, I’ll be there just for the animation.

    Oh hells, yes, I’ll be in for the animated movie. I miss hand-drawn (or computer assisted-hand drawn) animated movies. It’s how I fell deeply into the anime well and only barely survived.

    Yeah, count me as ridiculously excited about Harry Potter.
