Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

so this is definitely norbert. look at the ridge of black spikes!

something i find very interesting about this cover art is harry's neck - where is the object that he wears on the other US cover? he doesn't appear to be wearing anything, but it could be under his shirt.

so as far as the tame norbert goes - i wonder how closely related dragons are to snakes. can parselmouths speak to dragons as well as to snakes? this would maybe account for how in control of the dragon harry appears to be.

where is the place? i agree that it could easily be godric's hollow, being between mountains and all. i also think that we should consider forgein countries as a possibility. norbert was in romania, right? you know what countries are awfully close to romania? albania and bulgaria! so maybe the trio skips on over to romania to pick up norbert, and then they swing by bulgaria to visit viktor krum before stopping over in albania to find a horcrux!

Oooo! I like this possibility too! And, we know that the animagious form has some part that would identify it with the person...

There are just so many, possiblities!!

I bet everything that it is Norbert on who`s back Harry, Ron and Hermione are sitting.

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

yeah, i agree it is most probably a real dragon...but it would be great if it were Aberforth! If there was a caricature of aberforth as a dragon, this is probably how i would imagine it!

Seeing as Mary grandpre says that everything is put for a reason, ithink that it is probably godrics hollow at the bottom. It certainly Does not look like hogsmead.

I guess a dragon doesn't have to be tamed if you can talk to it. Maybe its like the centaur firenze or aragog- normally they aren't too friendly towards humans, but because they know hagrid and harry can talk to them, they might be willing to help him.

That would make sense why Rowling had the release of Norbert be such a bid deal in book 1- ive always wondered why he played that big a role...

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

Aberforth... I wonder what would he be? Oh, I remamber. A GOAT, possibly. Why is Ron's hair blond-like again. Just like on the UK cover art...

It has to Norbert because he is a Norwegian Ridgeback and the appearance of the Dragon in the cover art is closest to a Norwegian Ridgeback only.

Though the pupil suggest it to be an Antipodian Opaleye.

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

what about the wings on the dragon? has this dragon, like the trio's clothing, been tattered somehow? or is this naturally how a dragon's wings look? i was looking at the chapter art picture of norbert, and his wings are not tattered at all.

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

Another reason I am starting to like the Aberforth route is that it kind of looks like the dragon is smiling? Doesn't it?

I mean I really like that it could be Norbert, but then we would have to answer the question as to why the trio would be able to find them.

Okay, I also think there are a couple quotes floating out there that say we will meet a new animagous in DH and that we will learn more about a member of the Order that we have not had much introduction too... *Runs to HP Lexicon to find quotes*

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

If anyone was gonna fly a dragon, it'd be Harry.

And where are they, do we think? Scotland? I like the idea that it's Godric's Hollow... if I was going to choose a house to be the Potter's, it would be that one in the background, at the base of the second mountain.

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

Well, well, well, I didn't expect this. Yep, totally unexpected. The trio will be riding a dragon! That just surprised me.

Well, that dragon could make the theory about the trio encountering a dragon inside Gringott's more plausible and it could happen. I am sticking with that theory.

So you think that could be Godric's Hollow beneath them? Well, I didn't expect that... but wow!

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

If Hermione is wearing Hogwarts robes in that, then she changed houses, because the robe has blue to it too, not just the shirt on the inside, but also on her left sleeve (right from our perspective). That would mean that she is the first student in the books to ever change houses, and she would have switched to Hufflepuff. But that is only if you assume that the robe she is wearing is a Hogwarts uniform.

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

The wings look like after a battle, riven. We´Re never told that Norbert`s wings look so, right? That could mean he saved them.

I think if Hagrid asks the dragon to let them ride on his back, Norbert would do it because Hagrid was the first person he saw.

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

Okay, okay. It may be Aberforth... But, hey, is there really magic-creatures-form animagi? I mean, as far as we got, they're always some kind of common animals.

I doubt it. It's Norbert.

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

Perhaps, this is a new breed of dragon. Or a hyrbid? What about a cross between a Chinease Fireball and an Antilopean Opaleye.

Re: Scholastic releases DH deluxe edition artwork!

Is there any reason the dragon's horns looked cracked?

ravenclaw is blue. but i don't think the blue on her sleeve is actually ON the robe. i think it is a rip in the robe, revealing her blue shirt beneath the robe.
