There are only more pages because of extra artwork and stuff like that.

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

I think this is Godrick's Hollow. It is not big. It is perfect. The representative said sth about the mist... Dementors? Maybe it is important.
Dragons, dragons... Jo seems to like them very much, like Hagrid. Maybe in the end, Hagrid is right about dragons being adorable creatures!!!

Someone suggested that it could be under the imperious curse. I think this is a possiblity as it looks as though Harry is controlling it. Plus, if they are trying to get something (I think the RR Horcrux) then he could control the Dragon to go where he wants. Perhaps the dragon would also be immune to the enchantments surrounding the Horcurx...

It isn't exactly silver-blond hair, either. Definitely looks like Ron to me.

It's a really stunning cover. I hope they release these pictures as posters.

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

I doubt you can put a dragon under Imperius curse. They are way too much protected. And would put it under a spell? Harry? No... The ony possible explanation considering Imerius curse is that the Deatheaters-loads of them used the Imp. curse on the dragon and then the trio stole it. But... I really wonder how we all are mistaken by all the covers and Hallows. Can't wait 4 the book!!!

but can't the person who cast the curse control the person affected by it...yeah they could steal the wand but wouldn't the deatheater still be the person controlling the dragon......

Given that JKR said in the past that dragons can't be tamed, the very possibility of the dragon on the Deluxe Edition cover being an animagus makes a lot of sense. After all, the chances are pretty good most dragons in the HP world would want to eat the trio first before letting any human ride on it.

No I really think it's Ron. It makes more sense to have the trio than it does to have Harry, Hermione and Malfoy. Also, yeah his hair isn't 100% ginger on that picture but it's pretty much there. I don't think it's Malfoy at all.

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

the curse theory could work though, as you remember in GOF Sirius said that the only weak point to a dragon is their eyes as it is the only area where it is not covered in their magic repelling scales, so cursing it to obey Harry is a strong possability.
Another is that it is an animagus, and he/she is helping the trio get to where they are going. On the other side of things it does appear that Ron and hermoine are in school or plain robes while Harry looks a bit more muggle in some more casual get up. This makes me wonder if Harry somehow starts the journey alone without his friends but ends up with them halfway through the book or the hunt itself.

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

what makes you think it isnt a combined imperius curse? We all know a combined stunning spell can subdue a dragon? why not a combined imperius curse..?

besides HOW ELSE DO YOU CONTROL A DRAGON??

AND...charlie does not "tame" dragons, Dragons CANNOT be tamed. Charlie studies them.

Jo has specifically said that dragons cannot be tamed whatsoever. Simple.

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

As for the location I think it might as well be Godric Hollow.

I mean we can see houses as in a village, farms and two streams and a bridge...it has to be a village which they are passing or most probably going to. I think its the latter, otherwise the art designer wouldn't do so much of a detailing.

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

That's an interesting idea - it being an animagus. Being silly for a second, maybe it's Aberforth? It has a gray beard. And Albus had discovered the 12 uses of dragon blood. Might be a ncie tie-in.

I think it's probably a real dragon though.

I too think this is more likely. They have the connection with Charlie It could still be Norbert since Charlie would have trained him when he was a baby. Yup, I think it is Norby

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

Maybe the curse says: Be peacful. No attacks. No fire. Just obedience. I think the curse works as: Crouch, continue doing everything like you've done til now. And that is the order. You can say sth plus like: Write letters that say you're OK. And one part of your brain will write like before. But at one point, when you start thinking a lot under the curse, you are going to really start thinking. And steal a wand. And make a Dark Mark. And escape the camp. See what I mean. You're a puppet but it's up to you to fulfil orders at your own way. Like you did before...

Charlie Does Not Train Dragons, He Studies/works With Them.

Jo Has Said Dragons Cannot Be Tamed At All!

Wow! Good point! I know Hagrid didn't get too far at hogwarts, but I wonder if he could have an animagus... a dragon perhaps?
